Sunday was an interesting day in that we decided to make a foray into the closest town of Grants. Using my GPS we navigated a network of ranchers' roads and eventually made it into town after about 2 hours. With supplies in paws we made it back to camp after another 2-hour drive *facepaws*. Yeah. We were way the heck out there! It then proceeded to storm on us all afternoon. This being New Mexico, however, it would pour for about 15-20 minutes and then the Sun would come out for an hour or so before the next storm rolled in. During the rains we would grab beers and sit in the truck chatting and listening to satellite radio.
Overall the trip was a huge success. It was definitely fag camping, however, since we enjoyed coffee in the morning thanks to Scritch's Stabucks French press coffee maker. There were lots of hot dogs cooked on the open fire, steaks in the charcoal grill, and sausage and eggs on the camp stove. The key to good camping is lots of good food and drink! And now...pics are worth 1,000 words!

Go ahead! Make my day!
