Hanging Out at Boulder Creek - Sunday 9/21/2008
We spent last night sitting outside the trailer singing to Hydra's guitar playing. The neighbors were really friendly and even came over to tell us how much they enjoyed it.
I went out again in the morning with Dodger. He likes watching what's going on. He was out here in the dark last night, too.
How do you get nice trees like these next to our campsite in the desert? By irrigating twice a day, in summer.
I chatted with the camp's owner in the morning when we indulged in the free muffins and coffee, and told her we were a bit stranded. She offered us the use of a loaner car that they keep here, at Lone Pine's little airport.
"Just go in and let Red know you need the car," she told us, and got one of her employees to take us the couple of miles over there. She didn't have much nice to say about the Angry Mechanic, either.
