December 27, 2016 Twisted Shoe campsite Big Bend
I wish I had my DR! 2 KTMs just rode by. Jealous! So many of these roads would be great for a little dual-sport or off-road motorcycle. I was sold my DR200 before I left town – it was just too awkward for me to load and unload on my own. I was considering getting a smaller dirt bike for the camper, but timing didn’t work out. My mountain bicycle also didn’t make it for lack of a rack, so all my exploring is on foot for the time being. That’s okay, the dogs can’t go with me on either two-wheeled vehicle anyway.
When I popped up, before I put the dogs in the camper, I cleaned some. I pulled up the carpet, swept the floor, and let the carpet air out in the sun for a bit. Might as well. This little space can get messy very quickly and that makes it difficult to maneuver and more prone to accidents (like coffee spillage! The horror!) Better to keep the camper neat and tidy as much as possible.
I need a project because just campering is still waiting out my days until bedtime, and that’s part of why I left Arizona. Also, I think too much coffee in the morning is making for a spacey tiredness in the afternoons. Changing that tomorrow morning. Will have tea instead.
I did jumping jacks today and contemplated what it was like for Pioneers out here.
