Off I Go, Into the Wild Blue…03/30/13

What a heavy load!

So by the end of March I’m getting ready to leave Las Vegas.  In one day I managed to pack up everything I still had, loaded it into/onto Wes’ pickup and into the Blue Roo (formerly known as the POS).  It was loaded all the way to the gills.  I didn’t realize I still had that much stuff.  I drove the Roo up onto the U-Haul trailer.  This was great, unfortunately it was a tactical error.  That’s because I didn’t realize I should have put down the fender on the trailer prior to driving up on it.  This was an important point because the door wouldn’t open over top of the fender.  I ended up climbing out the window (good to know I can be a Nascar driver if needed), lowering the fender, opening the door, climbing back in, closing the window, getting back out and locking it up.  What a pain in the ass, but at least I was now ready to roll.

Nothing like a sprinkler left to run overnight during a freeze.

A beautiful stretch of canyon in between Alamo and Ely.  Looks like a good spot for a picnic and climbing.

The drive up was fairly uneventful.  I dropped the Roo off at Greg’s and he ended up driving it up to Mom’s.  This gave Wes’ truck a much needed break.  You’ll have to ask him about his adventure driving it up, perhaps, just perhaps, he has a new appreciation for the Roo.
