Adventures from the road


GanjaSMK

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share some photos from my current road touring adventures. 

 

My road dog. Blue heeler, Aussie/Sheepherder, maybe some other stuff. Definitely a dingo body when short shaved.

Standing where the water used to be before declines (Palisades Reservoir, ID).  Cool but, not cool, and pretty but not pretty.

Holidays with family.  Cramped gaming style, compactness? Pro level.

There's more but I'm lazy now. Stopped over in NorCal at buddy's place for a few.  Back on the road soon.

More to come... 😛

Ancient Bristlecone National Forest; the view from Sierra View about 9000 feet up overlooking Owens Valley, from just north of Mt Witney, all the way past Bishop, CA.  Impressive view and the picture doesn't quite do it justice.

Aye thanks, it's been a good run.  The goal was Oct to Oct or if the money ran out.  Luckily the money hasn't run out, but I'm coming up on the end of my journey, unless I figure a way to work from the road (money close!). 

 

@UltraMega

 

 

I did sell my trailblazer and bought a 2001 Dodge Ram Van 1500b (conversion) and it's been a game changer for sure.
