$0: Idledale, CO (moochdocking at brother Tim’s)
I hate to even mention this, out of respect for my East coast friends living in a sweat box, but I woke up to this temperature in the trailer.
Meanwhile, back home…
I got up early to make the drive (via Crystal City) to Tim’s place. I would get to see him for an hour or two before he left on a trip.
First, I had to get a 23-foot Airstream up his zig-zagging steep driveway. Back in and have an easy exit, or pull in to delay the pain?
Reverse was useless on the steep grade. Even locking it in 1st gear, I really wish Touaregs still had 4×4-LOW. Voila.
I’ll worry about my exit later.
I said my goodbyes to Tim (the view’s not bad)…
… and started to organize my thoughts about the next week’s travel, with the benefit of a good cell signal.
I also tackled some projects around his house. To earn my keep.
After my chores were done, this seemed like an ideal deck for a Solo fire pit and an adult beverage. Do you agree?
It’s even nicer after dark.
One more night here, and then on to___________. TBD
