Jasper is happy whenever he gets to go with us, no matter where it is. Heck, he was even in Mexico with us the last couple days when we walked across to do some optical shopping.

Hi Jim,
looks like you found a nice boon-docking site, your dog looks pretty relaxed and that moon nice!. Not sure if you know this but early Wednesday morning we are expecting a Super Blue Blood full moon, you are in a perfect spot to see it.
also just east of you is Valley of Names we visit are name when ever we are in the area, Hum never seen Bennett.

Tin.

Will you able to take a similar shot this morning at 6 AM of the blood moon? It would be a calendar contender!

Well, I never knew what it was, but I was out about 5am and the moon looked kinda weird. More of an orange line colour, and quite big. Earlier, around 2am it was super bright out.

Nope, just the regular axle. I have been keeping an eye on my under mounted spare, but it seems fine. I do want to watch it going over big humps some time.

That moon was too the south, and I wasn't turning the trailer around. The shot I posted was looking pretty much north.
