Sore back

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

  2. Get better soon, but don't take too little stuff with you to make it rough on you at the chili cook off.
