Some movement forward the last few days. Got my stickers for both Colorado and Idaho. Very telling about the states. I miss when CO was just a simple sticker and I think that's what you get when you purchase it in person at the local vendors. But now over the phone or online ya get this big stupid green registration form that gets placed under a clear cover sticker? Idaho - just a little sticker with zero instructions. We also received some detailed maps from Bill Dart for areas I'd like to ride. I like that they list level of difficulty as well as dirt, Jeep, single, atv, non motorized, and my favorite - needs work I spend a little time everyday studying at the desk and still feel very underprepared? And that's a little mini USB charged fan that's going to be nice for the van to more air around the windshield area. And that's a beer I got on sale at Publix And Mama Fu added a shad structure or poor man's awning. She's clearly more interested in setting up camp than I am. Most places I don't even pull out a camp chair. Not her. It's design intention is for the back of an SUV so we run the opposite direction and attach it to the van with some stout Ram suction cups I have for the GoPro. Still figuring it out. This effort it was set up inside out Also need to sort a clean way to keep that wall up for maximum maintain airflow. If I took the time to attach it to the roof is could provide some coverage during light rain but it's intent is purely shade. And safety reminder yesterday and the closest I've come to crashing the van. And by crashing I mean totaling the van. Sorry no vid. But proper code brown. On our way home from the beach, I almost rear-ended a car that stopped abruptly for a shit head that decided to turn at the last second - convertible Vet. @motomike14 at the entrance to Snack Jacks So the Vet slammed on the brakes (after he missed the entrance) to turn left forcing the VW in front of us to make a rapid stop. I was daydreaming when my wife yelled getting my attention! Chain reaction deal and I pressed that fat peddle hard and evaded to the right shoulder to avoid contact. I stopped about equal with the rear doors of the VW and so close I could touch em. My fault, I should have been paying attention and glad I was following at a safe enough distance to avoid disaster. A serious reminder of how fast things can change. This time next week we'll be waking up outside St. Louis!
