Slept last night in a parking lot, but it was free and not out of the way. With towels as curtains, it worked fine. Awoke fairly soon after sunrise, and can now show you my romantic locale.
Instead of the wind in the pines I had car-lock chirps and the slurp of tires on wet pavement as my morning music. Instead of a sunrise I had electronic signs shining through the mist. But today was not about pines and glorious sunrises. It was all about regaining my confidence in pulling a trailer (much practice long ago, but not in any recent decade). Today's challenges were fog and light rain.
The trailer handles well and although I'm not totally relaxed with it yet, everything went smoothly. I even got to drive it in the dark for a short while. Arrived home at 5:40 local time, and thanks to a refresher in backing up which cousin Jean provided I got it headed out the driveway, quite straight. It can't stay there permanently due to the windiness of our hilltop, but it should be OK for a few days. No big storms moving in just yet.
So here's where I ended the evening.
Lots of time in the car to think. I have the next few chapters of Bury the Hatchet in Dead Mule Swamp planned. A little too tired to write tonight, but I'm going to plan on tomorrow before I have to go to work at 1 pm.
Thanks for coming on my adventure!
