Camping at the barn!

I’m grateful for choosing to stay in the city last night for some urban camping as apposed to going to the mountains and staying at base camp for a couple of reasons. Firstly, my car was having clutch issues, so I’m pretty sure I would have had a long hike back. I was able to add clutch fluid for now, but I’ll see how that works out. Secondly, I went to move base camp this afternoon and couldn’t find my tent! Eventually I did, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to in the dark last night.

Today is laundry day! I’ve had offers to do laundry at friends, but wanted to hunt down a laundry mat instead. It’s the whole stepping away from my normal routine and wanting to do things differently. Moving away from my comfort zone. It was relaxing. I wasn’t all caught up doing other things, I just did laundry and wrote.

My night at what I commonly call the barn was awesome. Great friends, great time. We had some dinner and then watched a couple of The Walking Dead episodes. We had a few drinks as well! Later in the evening I laid my sleeping bag out on the ground and fell asleep. Around 2:00 AM I was awakened by rain drops on my face. No problem, I simply moved my sleeping bag under the deck and only had a few drops every now and then!

Another great memory!
