Yesterday afternoon I took down my canvas tent but had to clean the area underneath the washtub floor as it has been through rain and mud these couple of weeks that I have had it up in the backyard. Prolong bending is not good for my back, neither is lifting boxes. I woke up in pain and it did not help any that I had to also take down the first night/last night tent that I have decided I am not taking even if I have to sleep in my vehicle on the nights in question.
I had been kneeling down for a spell cleaning the underneath of the tarp when I found I could not get up. My poor mother had to bring me her walker!
I always vote early so went to take care of that civic duty as I will be in no shape to do so when I get back from my favorite desert. My back hurt so much I could barely walk...this is not what I wanted before my trip...to be in pain :-(
Went by Wal-Mart to purchase a couple of last minute items and some beer. Darn I soon discovered I could not lift a 30 pack! It about killed me to place it in the shopping cart. I will have to enlist my uncle's help to accommodate the adult beverages I am taking.
The new zero gravity chair I bought earlier this year is much bigger than the previous one I am used to taking to Terlingua. It is taking up a lot of valuable cargo space but I definitively need it. I am seriously thinking of making do with only one ice chest and a small one at that. We will see how that plays out.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams
