For my chores, I had to do some stitching on the front canvass. After that, Billy got some new shoes put on his front feet. Other than that, I managed to squeak in some rest and recuperation myself.
Tomorrow morning, Iím on the road again. In the short term, I think Iíll head east on route 50 for a bit. This will take me to the Gunnison River, and the north side of the Uncompohgre and Powderhorn Ranges. Iíve never been there, so it might be interesting to do a little exploring. This not a change in direction for the trip, I just decided to aimlessly wander for awhile. I donít plan on taking any 11 or 12 thousand foot passes, so Iíll probably just backtrack when I get a little of this wanderlust out of my blood. (Imagine that, me, getting the wanderlust out of my blood?)
Before I head down anymore National Forrest access roads, Iím going to pick up a sheet of plywood. With that, I can walk the horses individually across cattle guards, then draw the wagon across with a rope. Or, if they are only 4 feet wide, I can just drive the wagon across.
