Holy Snow Batman! Look Where I'm at Now!

I left Moab this morning, and drove up into the La Sal Mountains. Got my TT and truck parked in a great spot with a great view. Only problem is, it's snowing, blowing, with lightning and thunder.

It's great living this life!

I'm leaving the truck attached to the trailer, just in case I need to make a quick escape. I was able to move the TT to a spot where it's almost perfectly level, with the help of a few 2X8 leveling boards.

I can't believe I can access the internet up here through my Blackberry.

Man, the snow is really coming down now! Starting to stick to the ground, too.

Well, I have plenty of propane and plenty of gas for my generator. I just hope the outdoor plumbing doesn't freeze.

Here are a couple of pics showing the La Sal mountains behind me, and the Colorado river valley to the west. I bet I can see for 100 miles out my little TT windows.

Man, it doesn't get any better than this. A cold beer, falling snow, and a nice, warm gas furnace keeping me warm!

Panama City would be nice... but I think this is more exciting.

Bill
