Shot down to Study Butte for some last minute supplies late this morning. Dilly dallied down there about 10 minutes too long. As I was heading back north on 118, I saw rain falling on the vortex. Made it a mile out and parked it off the road just before the bad wash since I was starting to slide all over the place. I might have made it all the way but I have gone 5 1/2 years without getting stuck in the mud out here and didn't want to spoil my record today and end up blocking the road or rutting it out. The mile and a half walk was rather refreshing but kinda muddy. Drizzle most of the afternoon with more rain expected overnight and through Saturday. Balance of the ingot orders won't ship till Tuesday. 68,89,74,.35",B,.24
