Low of 39 - High of 78. Took the day off to go a callin'. A friend of mine bought a place out in the Solitario section of Terlingua Ranch....way, way out in the Solitario. He is spending his first week there since the purchase. I found his place on GoogleEarth and plotted the location on my GPS. Did a load of laundry in Study Butte and headed out for a visit. The cheap little GPS I bought at Radio Shack last year is amazing...all the un-named dirt roads were on it and it guided me right to his front door in the exact middle of nowhere - turn by turn directions in a female English accent, no less.
Hung out in the outback for a couple of hours then headed back to the civilization that is The Field Lab. Got home to find a little group of longhorns patiently waiting obediently at the end of my driveway. Snacked them then hung my laundry to dry. "Worshed" my bedding for the first time in 3 weeks so looking forward to a crispy clean sleep tonight. Plenty of sun in the coming days so perhaps a nice hot shower tomorrow afternoon.
