LOL, not really but I’ll accept it.
early monsoon and the next relo
The local weathercasters are saying this is monsoon-like precip a couple weeks early. Luckily so far it’s been light enough that dirt roads are passable after a couple days without rain.
Temps will be going up again to 76F on Thursday and slowly climbing for the forseeable future (79F next Thursday) so I’ll try to be >8,000ft by Thursday afternoon. It’s a balancing act between getting there early enough to get a spot early weekenders might claim vs leaving late enough for the roads to dry. I’ve already seen my first stuck vehicle:
No one was around or I would have helped.
The basic relo plan is:
- break camp early morning
- refuel and take on water
- Planet Fitness for shower and downloads
- Smith’s grocery for closeouts and sales
- walmart for bulk reprovisioning
I sprout in widemouth mason jars topped with sprouting lids.
- soak overnight
- rinsed a couple times a day and drain the runoff into Muffin’s waterbowl
- after ~2 days they had tails and were ready for use
The sprouts are mild, slightly grassy and slightly wheat. Soft enough to eat out-out-hand. I put them on my leftover pintos before I reheated them for lunch.
