4 weeks in hiding

 No News is Good News! The above picture is of my forest hideout for the past four weeks. Had the occasional weekend passerbyers, but other then that was very quiet up until the holiday weekend.

During my stay not one drop of gas was used, about $130 of food was consumed, and the wobbly pop intake may have been a tad bit greater then that. Temps have been in the mid 60's to low 70's, and nights dropped into the low 40's. Elevation is about 9400ft, not a bad way to spend August in AZ.

 Fattening up camp buddies for winter.
Big Mama circling the Turtle her daily ritual not sure if she had found a great fondness for, or she just enjoyed scratching her ass on him? Whatever the case waking up at 5am with the van shaking can be a bit frightening the first few times. Off to the Mesa for a few weeks, then time to start a southern migration.
Thanks for visiting! Good Day!

Old Buddy's

Not exactly how I wanted to leave New Mexico, but at least I got a free ride back to AZ. Well kinda free Richard the tow truck driver says it would have cost about $500. Thats the 3rd time AAA has saved my butt over the years.

Bluewater Canyon Hike

 Hikes like these always make wonder if I could just through on a backpack, and disappear into the pristine wilderness not to return for months on end. Here's a few more pics of the canyon hike......

 View from the bluff

No luck fixing the Turtle as of yet. Only a few days left here at blueweater, so like like he maybe getting a ride out of here. Good thing he broke down here cause its close to my property in AZ, and towing will be covered.

Storrie Lake State Park (Turtle Troubles)

 Campsite at Storrie Lake
Already left Storrie Lake for a rendezvous with my brother whose been on a week like motorcycle. This will cut about 6 hours off his trip and gave me a good excuse to head to Bluewater Lake. Havent been here before cause its always been a bit out of the way.

Unfortunately this may be my last New Mexico park for a bit. The Turtle is still a bit upset me looking at a new home, even after several apologies , and pats on the hood. He basically just quits running every time it rains, and with the monsoons in full effect he hardly runs at all. .

So far I've replaced plugs, and wire. New distributor cap, and rotor, fuel filter, and have a ignition coil on the way. If anyone has any tips or clues help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to Email me, or comment below. Email is over there -------> Back to the Storrie
