Day 4: Breaking my 1st Commandment and a Gun Fight

I had a hard time sleeping last night.  I think this schedule of getting to sleep as soon as it gets dark messes me up.  In addition, while most of my body was warm, my face was cold and my nose got stuffy.  To add aggravation to this, my dislocated clavicle makes it hard to …

Day 3: A Natural Refuge

The alarm from my phone went off at 6:45.  This was one hour before sunrise.  In the cool morning of Seminole Canyon, I really wanted to stay in the sleeping bag a tad longer.  But knowing that it takes me about an hour to pack every morning, my nagging subconscious insisted that I needed to …

Day 2: Starry Night – Split Personality

Last night I slept in my tent without putting the rain fly on.  The mesh that covers the dome of the tent let me go to sleep watching the stars come through, in a moonless sky.  The weather was just warm enough so that I could sleep on top of the sleeping bag.  However, as …

The final stretch: Funding needs a boost

It is now less than 48 hours before I leave.  I think I have enough of the trip laid out for me to feel comfortable with what lays ahead of me.  The new sleeping bag, which is rated 0-18F arrived today.  Wow, it is massive, so my estimation from the web site were way off. …

Riding Through Deserts – 2 nights before departure

I find myself 2 nights away from this year’s trip.  It feels so weird that I am just starting to write about this trip.  Usually I would have been writing and fretting over the journey weeks in advance.  Now, things seem to be more sedate.  I am just wondering if after the Alaska trip last …
