Closing The Mileage Gap

DSCF4484

As mentioned in my last post, we left Ketchum, ID on Sunday afternoon knowing we had to close 825 miles by the July 4th weekend.  Accordingly, we set our sites on Stoddard Creek Campground, 180 miles down the road.

About three hours later, having covered a mix of highways, gravel roads, and interstates, we arrived to this fairly small National Forest Campground, which will be our home through the work week.  We now find ourselves nestled under a thick canopy of evergreen trees, which, while problematic for our rooftop solar panels, does provide plenty of anchor points for our hammock.

It’s been a few months – far too long really, since we’ve had an opportunity to enjoy the hammock, so the trade-off for quality sunshine seems like a good one.  And, we have portable panels to keep our batteries from draining, so there isn’t any significant downside.  Anyway, not one to waste time … with a book in hand, last night after dinner Kelly made sure to begin catching up on #hammocktime.

    Kelly, you look good in that hammock.
    Not as good as I will look in my “T” socks, but good.

  2. I feel so guilty, literally pulling Kelly out of that hammock today. 😉
