Take Clay’s truck….
Add this…. a brand new ARB bumper
So much better.
After leaving Clay’s, I headed to Uwharrie to meet friends from the Olde North State Land Cruiser club for the annual Christmas party.
The event was also my chance to camp in December, fulfilling my 2015 New Year’s Resolution to camp at least once each month this year. Over 40 nights camping this year and at least one night each month.
The party is held on private land and features a barn for sleeping, cooking and eating.
Another sunrise, walking the dog and rainbows. It was time to pack up and head home.
Things not photographed, a dead sea turtle, Bocce game, boogie boarding, kites, naps, a long run…. you get the idea!
Another night of rain and wind, another sunrise:
Then a walk on the beach and a dead pelican – I never knew they banded them.
Beth tries the surf kayak – again she did really well, this is the very end, when she was getting off!
More rain clouds.
James and Elizabeth’s home built teardrop – the Crows Nest
Mark and Michelle’s Roof Top Tent and FJ Cruiser.
Us, Sam was in the tent in the back that Deb and I have used for over 25 years.
We decided to visit two caves today, the first is one I have wanted to do since I started visiting wild caves. Sinks of Gandy, it is not a technical cave, but features a river that you have to swim out of. We decided to take the dog ; )
The walk across a cow pasture.
Most of the cave was walking through larger rooms and passages.
Then the swim, it was way over my head and VERY cold. Half way through the swim, the dog wanted to turn around, but made it with no problem.
