Surrounded by Friends

Yesterday’s drama was easier to deal with because we’re surrounded by friends.

This is our 3rd time hanging out with Hector and Brenda, but our first time meeting Vince and Spencer.


Vince is in an Airstream and is joined regularly by his friend Spencer. Vince contacted us through the blog in early July and mentioned that he was going to be camping here at the same time we were.

We hit it off immediately and are excited that Vince will be going full-time in December.


Hector is a photographer and played tour guide for us yesterday taking us on an early morning shoot and an evening shoot looking for crepuscular animals. I’ll post those photos tomorrow.


Hector and Brenda’s dog Angel has been passing out the love to everyone including Curtis. It seems she’s developed a crush on the old guy.


2014 Cost of Camping:
138 night paid camping
119 nights free camping
257 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $3507.79
Daily average cost of camping: $13.65

    Ahhhh…doggie love! So nice that you’re getting to hang out, especially after the somewhat rough start.

    Oh, how much you are envied. We’re Class of 2016. Can’t wait. You all look like you’re having a blast and there’s nowhere you’d rather be. And your dressed for the changing of the season.

      Hi Ed! Hopefully you can get away for long weekends while you wait for 2016 to roll around!

        Lots of preparation for our Great Escape, as we refer to it in our blog. I’m at the beginning stages of the roof-mounted 400-600 watt solar project. Research is done. Design is done. Now we are purchasing our ingredients. It’s a DIY project so it won’t go quite as fast as if I hired it out.

        Even so, we try to get away camping. The eastern Sierras are in close proximity. We like the Alabama Hills, Bishop and Mammoth areas. We’re in the High Desert area of S. California.
