2/20/14. I’m in my tent just barely off the road on CA 49 about 18 miles south of Placerville. It was getting dark and there is no shoulder to walk on so I had to take what I could find. This is cattle country so the barbed wire is everywhere and there is little opportunity to find a good hidden tent spot. But, I’m happy! LOVE LIFE, the simple combination of the two things which matter most in the world.
