Day 111 La Jolla

Sleeping overnight was a pain in the rear with the pain in my thumb. I couldn’t get the throbbing to stop, even if my thumb wasn’t touching anything. It’s hard to find a position to lay in where your hand remains elevated and your thumb isn’t resting on something. Eventually pure fatigue set in and … Continue reading

Day 97 On the road again, on my own again

My short stay with my brother Shane and extended family had to come to an end. Vegas is just too big and expensive for my tight ¬†budget. They will stay there until Saturday, but I had to continue on. Money willing, I would have stayed until Saturday also. That morning I woke from a good … Continue reading

Day 83.5 and 84 One last cold night at the canyon

Day 83.5? That is the other half of the day that I didn’t include in my post two days ago. Basically, I just rode around the Grand Canyon park aimlessly to check out anything that I just haven’t experienced yet. I stopped in to see the Maswik lodge, which I haven’t previously visited. There is … Continue reading

Days 82 and 83 Grand Canyon. backtracking and hiking

Day 82 I’m going to skip the morning routine mumbo jumbo for this post and focus on giving a brief run down of the day. Of course I didn’t sleep well and of course I had some coffee first thing. I’m at the GRAND CANYON baby, it was time to sight see and point my … Continue reading

Day 81 lame to wild

A few things about the Grand Canyon National Park first. The part of the Grand Canyon that the park service maintains is the eastern portion. The western portion is owned by Native Americans. (that is where the sky walk is) This eastern portion is covered in thick forest. That threw me off when I first … Continue reading

Day 74 Giant pancakes, big time gun fighting, and huge cacti.

How someone can let their dog bark allllll niiiigghht looooong is beyond me. My, very penetrable, motel room walls were no match for the decibels that this wretched beast belted. I got to sleep pretty early the night before, but when the bladder fairy woke me up in the middle of the night, I was … Continue reading

Day 63 On the move again, kind of

Campsite 95 has been home for my longest stop of the trip yet. I remember pulling into the campground last Thursday and immediately seeing two javalina just a few spots up. Boy, I was so nervous to fall asleep that night with all of the warning signs around the park. There are no lack of … Continue reading

Days 59 and 60 Big Bend. The prettiest thing I’ve seen without two legs

Big Bend greeted me with a cold clear morning after my first nights camp at the park. Another bird also greeted me as I was making coffee and grabbing a bite to eat. This feathered foul friend was a road runner like the ones from the cartoons. He scoped me out for a bit hoping … Continue reading

Day 50! A soggy stall out

My campsite at the Huaco Springs RV park is located right on the bank of the Guadalupe River. Some tame, little, feathered friends came right up to me as soon as I unzipped my tent to help me celebrate fifty days on the road. I’m really not sure what species of duck they were, but … Continue reading
