below: My rig and Paul's--my solar panels raised.
Someone, for some reason keeps the place clean and manicured---asks no questions, entering or leaving---charges nothing!
below: I have a very bold visitor--right outside my door---does not want bread---wants meat--demands meat--I throw weiner bits----aaaahhh, that's better it said---stayed awhile--posing for its dinner. For the unfamiliar---this of course is the famous and fearless roadrunner--killer and eater of snakes---eternal nemesis of cartoon character, Wiley E Coyote.
below: Surprise! A long-time friend Ranger Brad is sharing paradise with us.
Guy buzzes by on this---we give chase on our bikes---he explains his $150 easy to install engine that gives 120 mpg.
below: always wanted to see one of these (wickieup?) in construction. I think I could build one if need be.
Completed, they are a servicable, breeze allowing, rain shedding, sun blocking shelter. The mud layer on the roof was news to me---nice and cool inside.
Bicycle trails along both sides of a lovely canal. Free boat rides in it if you wish.
Not sure where they get all this water--but there seems to be no shortage.
And if all these perks weren't enough--check out this magnificent art work entitled dinnertime.
But wait! There's more. A stone's throw away is free entertainment--a really good western town. P.S. Notice I'm losing weight. I'll be skinny as a post by summer.TO ALL YOU WANNABEES out there--yearning to breathe free: Take note: It is possible to live rent-free----once you achieve SELF CONTAINMENT (turtle-like self sufficiency)---a movable rig with bed, bath, water, power, holding tanks, lights-----NOT THAT DIFFICULT to buy or build--as I have done.
The North American plains Indians are generally credited with being the freest people who ever lived---How curiously ironic that they now give so generously to the race that took their freedom away.
