Status update

Due to several factors, prime of which has been my lack of motivation, i haven't updated in a while.  I decided to give a heads up on my current doings, and upcoming plans.  

Since Quartsite,AZ in January, I spent my time in Ehrenberg, AZ, which is a pretty uninteresting place to look at, as its mostly all rocky desert, but it is the perfect place to long term camp in the winter.  No time limit or fees, a pit toilet i can dump in for free, all the services nearby i need, including free water (tap).  

My main reason for going to Quartzsite this year was to secure a camp hosting job, which i did.  It will be at Fuller Lake in northern California, in the sierras near Nevada City.  I was planning to meander up that way throughout April, and get there in time to start in may.

However, due to some unfortunate circumstances, a friend i met in Ehrenberg needed a ride to San Fran, California right away.  She proposed that since I needed to head that way soon, she would hire me to shuttle herself and her adorable cat Hunter up there. Since it would help me out financially and help her get where she needed to go, it was a win win for everyone (except my back ;])

So a day later I am in the Bay area, about to visit a landmark.  Its a little early for the normal camping season, so finding a place to camp for the next few weeks might be a challenge, but that is what an adventure is all about.  Walmarts here are no go as well.  

My tentative plan is to head up to Mendocino NF and look for some open campgrounds, or if i have to do so, disperse camp.  Then hoof it east to my host job.

Before I get too remote for internet, I will hopefully continue logging my travels and campsites in Texas, a more thorough RTR post, and my Ehrenberg experience so look forward to that.

Thanks for reading!
