Sad to see someone drove by without checking. I've had that happen in NV. Looks like a productive trip. May be time to wander on down there.

It just keeps getting better!  Blinds, stacked rock shelters, an electric blanket!

 

Congrats to the ski3pins and baggers!

 

Though another traveler not stopping to see if you needed assistance is disappointing.

 

Thanks for sharing

It's possible the ancients needed the electric blanket (solar power, Victron, lithium, etc.) while hanging out in their blinds. It was hard to find a propane dealer in those days.

 

Every time we air up (sometimes when we air down), people stop to check on us. Sure glad you had the right solution for your problem.

Well Ski, if we ever see you and the Lady broke down on the side of the road we will be sure to stop and talk your ear off until you get yer rig runnin lickity split -- just to get away from my jawboning. My wife may actually pitch in, but I am more of an 'advice and wisdom' dispensing sort of guy.  Heck, I've got insights that even I havn't realized yet. Talkin em out is very good for me. I am sure you will enjoy hearing my take on things while barkin yer knuckles on steel parts. See ya soon, if yer lucky that is!

Obviously you've fixed things in the dirt.

Great tale from ancient trilobites to new friends.

Familiar sites and sights are always a welcoming read, seen through your story and photos.

We've been thinking of using our Inreach for backcountry messaging, assuming everyone is checking their devices.

Part II is another wonderful tour of familiar haunts.  Our friend Mitch guided us to the hogan a few years ago.

That bench with springs at the base of the limestone butte is a special place for sure.

If we ever see you broke down, or locked out of your truck I'll always ask "Got everything you need?"
