It’s a momentous day! Jef and I are on our way to the Coconino Forest near Flagstaff, AZ, for the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous as I type this. A lot of “firsts” are happening today. It’s our first excursion with Gypsy, it’s our first camping trip with Sake, and tonight will be our first real night sleeping inside a van. (The epic fail from a couple weeks ago doesn’t count.)
Los Angeles is experiencing a pretty serious heat wave right now, and heading further inland to escape it… really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. We’ll be camping at an elevation of 7500 feet, so hopefully that will help.
It’s amazing just how much stuff two people and a dog need just to go camping for a few days. After having loaded up the van this morning I’m seriously wondering where we’re going to sleep. I assume someone will figure it out before dark.
