U Better Recognize

It was yet another very long day today–in a good way this time. We drove about 150 miles in over 10 hours, from the top of Huntington Canyon to Joe’s Valley along Miller Flat Road, with a few detours along the way. My sister and her family followed us in their Bronco, and we found a few caches together, and even placed two new ones specifically for people coming to the Potter’s Ponds campout in two weeks.
Yesterday was a long day–I called around and found one of the bearings I needed in order to fix my swamp cooler, in Castle Dale of all places. It was only a 30 minute drive (one way), but Michael and I took a little side trip along the road to Buckhorn Wash to get FTF on a geocache out there. We got back into Price after 6:00pm, and I started fixing the cooler then. I got done late (had to clean it, change the pads, bearing, and belt, then oiled the motor and bearings), then spent the rest of the night watching Stargate and getting ready for today’s adventures.
I sold my ’79 F-150 this week. I only got $1,000 for it, but considering that, including my original purchase price, I had $6,500 wrapped up in that truck, it wasn’t nearly what I was hoping to get. The Mazda is still up for sale, and has been for nearly a year. The registration for it expires at the end of the month, and if it doesn’t sell by then, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I placed an ad in AutoTrader, but I’ve only gotten one damn phone call from it (worthless piece of shit).
Next weekend, Mike is going to try to come down for a little bike ride along the Green River with me. I think we’re going to start in the town of Green River and ride north to the Price River confluence, which should be shorter and more scenic (according to somebody I heard from who’s actually done it). I can’t wait for that, and I’m going to try to place all the other Price River View caches before then (there will be eight total, and two are already in place).
