I want to go shooting with Pat.
Fun, fun, fun.
Any time I've ever been off somewhere else, I've had to stay in a hotel and I don't have a problem with the other guests because nothing stops me from getting up whenever I want, or coming back whenever I want. I've left at 4:30 a.m. to park by a lake and look at the stars in Colorado... I have a Dodge ram truck, and have been known to sleep on the front seat when I get pooped (better safe than sorry) but it's not an overnight accomodation.
I was going to Glenrock Wyoming for a painting workshop, and when I got tired I pulled into a rest stop, cracked the windows, and fell asleep on the front seat around noon. Sun in the window, I was like a fat cat snoozing. I told the gals at the workshop about it and they FLIPPED. I could be Kidnapped! I told them if anyone takes me, they'll bring me right back
Turns out several years ago a young gal was on her way through the area to Casper to get back to college and she never showed. A local guy ended up in the hooskow, and his son was doing work around his dad's place and unearthed that girl's car, and at the time of the workshop, his trial was going on. So, that is why they were freaking out, but I've never had any problems.
One of the neatest places I've ever visited is Barry Smith's taxidermy shop in Hot Sulpher Springs, CO. I hadn't gotten my SLR yet, so I was still using film and a P&S... I should go back that way this fall and take the couple thousand pictures I should have gotten the first trip.
I"m thinking one of these days a conversion van or something would work out great. Even a truck with a topper, and throw a mattress in the back??
