After a huge, amazing breakfast of eggs, sausage, ham, peppers, tomatoes, toast with butter and jam, and watermelon. We waddled out of town. It was actually a quite easy day along ATV two track paths, forest service roads and gravel roads. Even though the home was all road like paths today it was still beautiful; especially toward the end. Green valleys full of wildflowers brimmed by aspen with a mountain backdrop.

Physically, I felt pretty good for the first time so far. Though, I played out by the end. I may consider changing my shoes out for some Hoka Speedgoats next chance I get.

We found some flat spots in the forest next to the creek and settled in. Before long Dirt Monger walked up. He planned to just stop and visit for a bit before moving on. Well, one thing led to another and he decided to stay. He didn’t want to miss the opportunity to spend a rare sociable time among friends. Fast forward an hour or so and now thete are seven of us tucked in here where an average person would say it’s impossible to tent.
