Day 153

Day 153
I awoke just before the sunrise.

I broke camp and repacked the buggy. I made my way up to the road

I started putting in interstate miles:

At 10:30 a.m., I made it to an abandoned truck stop in the middle of nowhere. 

I set up camp.

Time passed. I ate a heater meal. It was good!

A trucker came by! He gave me a few cans of beans! Didn’t catch his name 😦

Just past 2 p.m., I rejoined the interstate and continued chipping away at New Mexican miles:

At 5:30 p.m., the sun hung low in the afternoon sky. 

I made it to Arizona! I went live on Facebook. I chatted with friends and family for almost an hour, wow! It felt so good to have another state under my belt!

I put in a couple more miles and made it to a rest area. 

It began to rain.

I hung out and ate another heater meal. Those things are great, it had peanut m&ms. Such a treat!

As the storm passed, the sun set. I decided to set up camp. I have yet to travel on the interstate at night.

I found a lone tree surrounded by brush a few hundred feet from the rest area. I set up camp. At one point in the night I woke up to rain! I threw a tarp over the hammock and drifted back off to sleep. I slept great!
