Baja, defcon 4

And off to bed. Didn't sleep last night because the winds off the mountain rattled the tent all night. And the night before we froze until sunup all alone on an empty mesa beneath a mesquite tree and an insane full moon, giant boulders and cardon cacti all around. Visited by a rabbit in the dark. Aimee spotted it off in the distance beneath the light of the moon. It was so damn bright. It was like silver daylight. Now everything is covered in dust. Everything. The doors of the 4runner all squeak. The windows scrape with grit when we roll them up. Tonight the hot shower was so so good.

Dang - Sounds like a romantic honeymoon. I'd love to be freezing with my woman in a tent at the sea of Cortez with my woman. What are you eating while camping? Any Cascabelas? little lizards mang?

Dude, it's not our honeymoon!! This is a work trip. It's not about fun and fuzzies beneath a feather comforter. It's about eating leetle lizards, and wringing water from cactus paddles, about dodging the jumping chollas and diving for crustaceans for dinner. The honeymoon comes later. After we prune the hedges of many small villages...
