A QUIET MORNING START TO OUR DAY
Always nice when we do not have to fire up our Blue Flame heater at night. Still have not heard a single Coyote in the neighborhood since being here. A calm lazy morning just doing a whole lot of nothing. After Monday’s Jeep run up to Harquahala Peak we figured a day of nothing was the way for us to go today. Winds starting picking up around 11 & just kept increasing in strength all day. By mid afternoon the coach was beginning to rock pretty good & our outside furniture started moving around. Time to batten down the hatches. At least the winds were warm for most of the day:))
AND A QUIET MORNING FOR RVSUE AND HER CANINE CREW AS WELL
Wednesday we are off to MIKE & PAT'S just up the road at NORTH RANCH for a Buffalo Burger supper. Mike said he was going to go out & rustle himself up a Buffalo today. Thursday we have a Jeep Safari lined up with Jim & Bev, also from North Ranch. Had an email this afternoon from Peter at AMERICAN TRAVELER who has just landed in the Vulture Peak area so we will be meeting this fellow Boondocking Blogger at some point shortly as well.
PHEEBE FINDS ONE OF HER OLD PALS ON OUR MORNING WALK
Had a few questions about the HITCHITCH site I mentioned in my post a few days ago. I think there may be somewhere on the site where you can apply to have your blog included in their list of travel blogs.
We have been on & off Hitchitch a few times over the years & I seem to recall it took us awhile to get on the site after first applying. We were on for awhile & then one day I noticed we had been taken off. It was in the summer & figured it was because we were Snow Birds & not traveling the summer months. When we were on the road again I re-applied & sent a couple emails to the folks who look after the site. After a bit I noticed we were back on Hitchitch again & we have been on ever since.
KELLY FINDS PART OF AN OLD SKULL UNDER A TREE
THERE IS A WIDE DIVERSITY OF SCENERY WHERE WE ARE
Also, a question why we don’t take the Motormouse on our Jeep trips. The little Motor is 15 now & would much sooner stay home basking in a warm sunny spot than be bouncing around all over the place upside down in the Jeep. She is also much harder to keep track of on a hike because of her small size & the fact she blends in with the rocks & has a habit of wandering off & not coming when called.
SPOTTED THESE HORSES ON AN AFTERNOON WALK WITH PHEEBS
Camille from PROTECH MOBILE RV SERVICE over there in that Florida place had a question wondering if we were into Geocaching. We did join a Geocache site a few years ago & got ourselves a Delorme P-40 GPS unit. But, for whatever reason, our interest waned & we just never did get ourselves into the Geocaching spirit. I do agree it’s a great way to get people off their duffs & out into the countryside using modern technology to place tiny treasures for other like minded people to find. It’s not so much about the tiny treasures at the end of the trail & all about the challenging trail ride to get there.

Question about disposing of the cow plops on our site yesterday. When boondocking, I always dig a hole away from the site to put the dog poop in each day as I scoop it up. Cow plops went in there. When we leave I fill in the hole & everything is buried & lookin good for the next boondocker at the site:)) I remember Rick from Darby Well telling me he sometimes builds an unlit campfire for whosoever should come to the spot after he leaves. Thought that was a right nice thing to do.
