Thank you, Hittenstiehl and Don. It's always great to hear from you too.


We found a lone strip of campsites left open after all the National Forest campgrounds have been gated shut. The fishermen and campers are long gone - the remaining traumatized trout are no longer interested in what I have to offerÖbut thatís okay by me. We are boondocking up around 9,000 feet, the nights are well below freezing, and we have to wait on the mid-morning sun to loosen up our water jugs.

We donít have solar yet, so we burn a gallon of propane along with a couple gallons of gasoline - all told about $13 each day/night. When the overnight temperature closes in on zero, we leave on the water heater and generator - cheap enough insurance to get our trailer, and us, through the cold night. Still, it's a cheap price to pay for seclusion - the total silence and stillness are priceless to me.

There is no Airstream in this video but as I have stated elsewhere, it is what facilitates such moments. I am no great fisherman and a lot of the time I go home empty-handed...but that's okay with me.

I'm outside and I wouldn't trade that for all the money.
