|Just getting started west of Tortugas|
I ended up exploring a few arroyos I'd been in fairly recently, but arroyos are always fun places to wander through. For one thing it's possible to identify the footprints of animals that make their way along these sandy thoroughfares.
After my outing I returned home to shower and head out to Target and Albertsons. While I was inside the latter doing some grocery shopping I got a call from Jeff at Bogart's informing me that the rodents had done considerable damage inside the engine compartment of the Jeep Commander, including chewing through some wires in the fuel injector harness. The vehicle won't be repaired for several days because parts have to be ordered. Rats!!
