I did it! I started my journey and made it to my first camp. I’m looking at this gigantic August moon that I’ve been dreaming of for awhile now. It’s a good beginning.
The he day started out with rushing, quite a bit of anxiety, throwing last minute things where ever there was a space, and only getting down half a cup of coffee. A friend helped me make sure all the hooking up was done correctly, and finally I was off. It feels quite different driving the rig when it’s fully loaded…and I do mean “fully”!
I arrived safely at dear friends Laura and Joel’s house, where the dogs got to go for a walk, Joel worked on a couple of issues for me, including the “Joel Pole” which I’ll explain soon. Laura served a beautiful vegan lunch and routed me through the worst of my drive. They gifted me with some lovely wine (which I’m enjoying some of right now), and then I was off to make my way through the maze of freeways and traffic that would take me around Oakland and up to Winters, where I landed safely.
When I arrived I wanted to make sure that Joy and Shiloh were happy so they ended up taking a swim and watching ducks. That, along with a good roll in the dirt ( while still wet), and they are now happy campers!
And for me… Looking at that beautiful moon and realizing that this is all really happening…
That’s making me a very happy camper tonight. 🙂
