Doing some visiting
Saturday I visited with Patti and Marty and then drove around town to see what’s going on.
Nothing much new. After that I went back to Marty’s for another visit.
My old camp spot
Around dark I drove over to the Sunkiss road I think it is heading out into the desert on the east side of town by the model plane air field. I only drove out the road about a half mile and found my camp spot empty so pulled on in her.
I sleep well and got up fairly late and made coffee. I planned to stay at this spot most of the day and just take it easy mostly, except for my little walk.
Out for a walk
Where was I
While I was doing that I realized one could get lost easy out here as it’s pretty flat but not that flat and I had nothing to mark where the van was.
I was a bit concerned when I came upon a trailer parked so hailed them as I thought it was better to make sure where I was going as one can wonder around out here for a long time if not careful.
After the dogs barked a guy came outside and I explained that I just needed to make sure which way I was going. I told him what I thought and where I thought my van was and I was right but good to be sure and off I went.
It was about a half mile to the van where I made another cup of coffee and preceded to take it easy for the rest of the day.
Beep beep road runner
I did see one jack rabbit on my walk but it was too quick for a picture. While I was sitting in my van enjoying the cup of coffee I heard a strange noise moving along the main road but I couldn’t see anything until eventually a road runner popped up about a hundred feet behind the strange noise.
The noise was like a little whine, like a small dog that lost it’s master and was lost but I guess that’s one of the noises road runners make. Again I didn’t get a photo as the bird was gone quickly especially when tow side by sides came by lickety split.
Back to Patti and Marty’s
Just before 5 I drove back to Patti and Marty’s place to visit for a bit.
And then made dinner in my van in their yard and now I’m going to find some internet somewhere likely a fast food place as the library is closed on weekends.
That’s it of me today.
