Time isn’t up until the 20th, but as I’ve mentioned before I’d rather be in place away from people when the Inauguration occurs (“a Republic, if you can keep it” – Benjamin Franklin). I got everything ready to start the move tomorrow morning.
I’ll do laundry, get another $9 shower, and pick up some torx tools I need in Q. Haven’t decided where I’ll go yet. Thinking
- Kofa or even Yuma until early Feb
- then back to LVC until late Feb to pick up some Amazon packages, stopping in Q for water on the way up 95
- a few days elsewhere to round out the 28 day cooling-down period for Q.
One of the chores was to pick up the small tent I use to store stuff or hold my place during a run into town. Pulling the tent stakes can be tough and I’ve often thought about attaching a loop of paracord to the mallet handle to make pulling easier. It worked great.
While I was at it I drilled a hole in my walking/multipurpose stick for a lanyard.
The lanyard will make it possible to drag the stick if I am on treacherous uphills using both hands to hold on. While a walking stick is a great help, it can be a dangerous hindrance if you can’t carry it hands-free when you need both hands.
Muffin compares the position of the NO CAMPING PAST THIS POINT pylon and the two campers in the distance. She does not approve.
Somewhere I have pics of a Class A towing a huge cargo trailer and a toad (“towed vehicle”) in Craggy Wash sitting in an area marked NO VEHICLES BEYOND THIS POINT - RECLAMATION IN EFFECT.
Update: found it on dashcam footage:
