The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Day 85


This is someone's ingenious water heater system. 
Why use your propane when you can get the sun to do the heating for you? 
Don't laugh, that black plastic tubing can get real hot sitting in the sun.  

Although it will not work on a day like today.  There's no sun, its cold, the wind is blowing and there is supposed to be rain later today.  I've learned the winter season here in the desert is unusually cooler this year due to El Nino or La Nina, one of those.  Still it is better than back at home right now.

  2. We've been coming here since 04. That year was one of those 'unusually cold and wet' years, as well. But it made for an amazing spring desert bloom!
