Some of his recent exploits:
A hill with a wind-block built for tent campers at Crystal Forest Gift Shop Campground at Petrified Forest National Park:
When we left, it was so muddy that my flip-flops collected 1” of mud on them. The trick was just not to stop. We left some nice tracks through the campground, I am sure they weren’t fond of us.
When driving to our next potential campsite at Ironwood Forest National Monument, we came across a flooded road. He took the first two with no problem or hesitation, despite the warning to not enter when flooded.
The last one stopped us though, it was probably 2 feet deep in the middle. I believe this was a result of irresponsible flood-irrigation farming. I had to find another route.
Now I on the other hand, will push the limits on my designs. Which is why I end up with drawer designs that look this:
I often have to sand off a quarter-inch or more to make it fit.
Or, I have to do things like this to make it fit:
Cutting corners off.
Cutting off already-glued-on sides to make the tray 1/8” smaller in width, then gluing them back on.
Fitting in as much as I can is my limit-pushing, which is also what leads me to put in as much as we can do in a day. Probably why we ended up driving through some crazy-strong winds only to drive 28 miles through Petrified Forest National Park to our campground. Jonathan may complain about the driving, but I definitely found it worth it to discover the wonders of the petrified trees.
