Closer to my hearts desire

I am very happy. I just made an even trade for work to be done on Serenity. I traded the original Little Sanitee. Bearings packed, Ubolts and leaf springy things flipped so she rides higher. Brakes and drums and all the stuff that goes with them. New wedding cake vintage look lights, door handle, brake controller and wiring. You'll be seeing me comin' round the mountains when I come.
An artist friend of mine PleinAirJourney.COM set off on his journey last year. He takes the most incredible pictures that encourages me even more to pursue my own journey.

Now, I do realize most of my readers are experienced travelers. Most are boon dockers at heart and don't need any instructions. This for the few people out there that don't know how to make a campfire.

1. Split dead limb into fragments and shave one fragment into slivers.
2. Bandage left thumb.
3. Chop other fragments into smaller fragments.
4. Bandage left foot.
5. Make a structure of slivers (including those embedded in the hand).
6. Light match.
7. Light match.
8. Repeat “I’m a Happy Camper” and light match.
9. Apply match to slivers, add wood fragments, and blow gently into base of flames.
10. Apply burn ointment to nose.
11. When fire is burning, collect more wood.
12. When fire is burning well, add all remaining firewood.
13. After thunderstorm has passed, repeat the above steps.

No kidding, I paid a fraction of the trade for it, let it sit as my little art studio and enjoyed it.
