Laundry Room bivy = a trip to New Zealand

The first month or so, camp was down in the 'wine cellar'.

The last couple, it's been plush- livin' in the 'studio apartment' (the old laundry room at the High Country Motel.)

There's been quite a few baths in the Yellowstone this summer.  And probably 50 solar showers or so- down in the thicket, next to the Soda Butte Creek (with an especially pungent smell of iron the last few weeks).

It's actually very comfortable summer digs, compared to the eight recent summers I've spent camping in the backcountry while working for the FS.

Sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do,
in order to spend a couple months each year in New Zealand.

T-minus:  three weeks.
