I am free! I’ve been on the road, Teardrop trailer in tow, for three days now and it’s just starting to sink in how truly at large in the world I am. I can go anywhere, any place, any direction, stay as long as I’d like, and sleep every night in my very own bed! The Teardrop is the best idea I’ve ever had!
Fitting that I spent the first night out on the road at the Bisti Badlands Wilderness. Bisti has no trails, and no maps; this is a place for wanderers. It’s also one of the most geologically exotic landscapes I’ve ever seen. From the parking lot, you just head east, into what looks like an ordinary arroyo. In less than a mile, you’re on another planet, a place of hoodoos, mushroom rocks and dinosaur bones.
I’m now in Colorado, heading to Mesa Verde and Hovenweep National Monument. Stay tuned for more!
