Yesterday was wine day so needless to say I retired early and I mean early like 7:00 p.m. It turned out to be a good thing since once again I was wide awake at 4:00 a.m. Folks, I am used to going to bed at 4:00 a.m. not waking up at this ungodly hour!
As soon as the sun came up I had breakfast...cereal and milk and a ham sandwich. Considered setting up my tent shower but decided it was easier to just drive into town to the quarter showers in Study Butte. No worries about the heat (law enforcement) as they do not swarm the area until Wednesday.
The guys camp arrived this afternoon and I was sure glad to see them. They are great friends that I consider my uncles, brothers and cousins and they always look out for us girls. They give us our privacy but they keep a watchful eye just in case.
I have mentioned many times in my Terlingua tips section that you need to bring some type of shade structure as it is still pretty hot during the day even in October and November. I was going to buy an Easy-Up Shade Canopy when I went to the Academy grand opening in Eagle Pass. However, when I tried to lift that sucker...it was just too heavy for me :(
I know the employees would have placed it in my car...but how was I going to get it down when I got home? Man, I sure miss my camping van! Maybe I will win the lotto and can finally purchase another transmission for Terlita.
Though not visually attractive...I did manage to rig me up some shade...don't laugh now :D

A lot of people arrived Sunday - October 26th.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
