Camping

Sept. 27, 2020

It took awhile in the dark last night, but I found this spot in the national forest to camp.

The first elk sighting of the day, there were several cars stopped on the road, so I left the truck running and walked up to get a better angle when I hear… “dog” I turn to see Kodak chasing full speed across the field toward this elk (She jumped from an open window) she either:

A. heard me and listened when I said stop

or

B. thought better of the outcome

But didn’t get all the way to the scene of the goring.

A nice walk, more elk, a good early morning.

After making breakfast, I decided to run Hurricane Creek, I was a little nervous running it solo, but ran into a small group of Toyotas and tagged along.

My first off-roading trip in Pongo and she is amazing, walked up everything and the trail is way more eroded than my last visit.

Anytime I am this close, I will always do the Max Patch loop hike!

Kodak looks around an old house

The walls were covered in newspaper and in some places wall paper.

Drive more random dirt roads before the long ride home.

Trail magic, before leaving I cut up a lot of wood for the next user.

Ridgemont Country Club are the Piedmont 40+ 3.5 singles team in the state championship in Goldsboro after winning the summer season.  We are 1-1 at the end of day 1 and in third place. I played #1 singles for both my matches and went 2-0.

My first match was odd, I was nervous and tight and my legs were literary shaking. I fell behind 4-1, before winning 11 straight games to win 6-4,6-0.

My second match started better, 6-0 but let him win 2 serves and break me before I won the second set 6-3
