It’s time for breakfast…
(holds up can of ~Campbell’s Chunky Old Fashioned Vegetable Beef soup)
Not feeling too adventurous about flavors today so we’re just going for something tried and true, definitely good, can’t be bad right? We’re gonna find out.
It’s a nice morning. Gorgeous.
Yeah, see now that’s good.
nodding in approval
It doesn’t even need to be warmed up.
Breakfast of the gods.
I have my camera ~Velcro’d to my car right now, I love Velcro. One of the greatest inventions ever.
studies soup can
Starting to get kinda full.
I have to say, what would be nice right now would be some coffee, but…
There’s really no way for me to do that. I do have a little alcohol camping stove. And a pot. And I could heat up some water and make some coffee if I wanted to make some coffee.
But I really just got that for emergencies. I don’t think I’d willie-nillie just be pulling it out and using it all the time.
Some coffee would be nice though.
First time I’ve ever used this camping chair. It’s orange. I like orange.
Should probably take a walk.
I put the empty soup can in the trash bag and I guess the trashbag had a hole in it and some of the liquid leaked out on the towel I keep on the seat. So I had to wash the towel off and put it over my camping chair to dry a little bit.
It just got me to thinking, beans don’t do that. Beans are pretty clean. I just get the little miniature cans and that’s plenty for me in one meal.
It’s all a process of refinement. Yeah you want variety but it comes at a cost and it’s not really worth it.
I love these areas where you can walk around and there are all these random bushes. I feel spiderwebs everywhere though.
I really love these boots because they make me feel safe from snakes. They come up high enough to protect me when I’m aimlessly walking around out here aimlessly not really paying attention to the appearance of the ground.
Yes, this my first time BLM camping but I have a feeling it’s gonna be hard to top this. I have a feeling that this is as good as it gets. It can’t get much better than this.
Everybody in the United States should be taking advantage of the intense freedom of this and what it represents. Take advantage of it and do it now.
There’s like green wood on this tree. Is that like a family of cactus or something?
Are these bigass cacti really cacti or are they trees? Is there a difference?
I feel like they are just really big cacti.
So are there any tarantulas out here? I’m just wondering what kinda spiders these spiderwebs are coming from.
Is the lighting better if I walk backwards? I should just walk backwards.
You know, I really love expansive, flat land where you can just walk a long way but you don’t really get lost. As long as I can still see my car, I’m good.
That’s like my gauge. If I can’t see it anymore then we’ve got a problem.
The cactus looks dry, it’s dry out here. It’s too dry for a cactus!
He does look parched though.
Hey, I made friends with that other cactus over there, do you guys know each other?
Awww, look at the little baby cactus.
That’s a really pretty cactus, you’re pretty tall. It is what it is. Anyways, I’m partial to my other cactus over there. First cactus I ever met and he’s just got me feelin’ some type of way.
These look like the cacti that have a clique.
They’re like the clique and yeah they’re gonna treat you like shit, but they’re still parted enough for you to stand in the middle so you asked for it.
What’s up you guys? Awww, me and the cacti. I love cacti.
Low key, lost sight of my car. There it is. Wow, see now it’s over there. It’s like… that’s how it goes out here. You turn around and turn around, and then you’re like where the fuck am I?
There’s another cactus up here I wanna see and then I’m gonna turn around. Aww, hi butterfly! I think that was a moth, but whatever.
God dude, this cactus up here, whew, damn dude. I’ll show you in a second. This is an attractive cactus. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trifilin’ on my cactus but, this one… the grass is always greener isn’t it? The cactus is always greener. I know who butters my bread, but I’m just sayin’ this is a pretty good lookin’ one right here.
Looks like it’s having a hard time down here though, what’s up with that? Is that just what they look like?

Cactus got me turnt!
Feel like I need to go right back this way and just retrace my steps. Cuz I didn’t bring a bottle of water with me. It’s not like I’m on a very long walk, but I’m not gonna be going very far off if I don’t have some water.
This is the life right here. Just camp in a place that is stunningly, ridiculously beautiful. You get up, you get out and you walk around. And this is what life is supposed to be about. This is what we’re supposed to do. Just travel and walk.
My towel I spilled soup juice on is just drying out here.
All my gear is basically black, my luggage and what not. My window coverings, the car itself. Everything is dark colored. That’s how I like it cuz it doesn’t attract a lot of attention, you can’t tell very much by looking at it.
All you can see is the flashes of red and orange I have lying around. Cuz it’s warm, and that’s what I like, warm colors.
And that’s kinda why I’m here, cuz I really wanted the warm tone of the desert. It makes me feel good.
(shows bungee cord hooked onto car door handles with towel hanging over it)
This is my bungee cord laundry line idea and it works perfectly as long as you lock the doors, cuz it could potentially pull on these handles to the point where they open. That won’t happen if they’re locked.
Look how great that is, I’m just stoked. It’s the little things.
