5/3/12, Nameless (Docís) Canyon, Colorado - This is my third night without phone or internet service. Iím starting to get the internet heebee jeebees - ha ha. I could actually get in touch with the rest of the world; if I either climbed a small mountain or drove 5 more miles down the road. Since neither of those options is going to occur, Iíll just sit here and shake!
We started the morning at our campsite, a mile below the pass. Last night, when I pulled through the wire gate and parked on a flat spot in the meadow below, I misjudged the steepness of the hill that I would have to ascend in the morning. Bob and Bill tried their best, but about six feet from the top, they failed to conquer the incline. After moving a couple of rocks, and backing the wagon and trailer down the hill, I parked in on a flat spot and broke out my secret weapon - the Doc-ster!
I had to move a few more rocks and logs, then I kicked it into Unicorn Hitch gear and conquered the hill. I initially thought I would get an early start and be on the road by 7:15 am. But, all of the morning fun cost me an additional hour and a half - oh well, whoís counting?
