The tent tonight. For us, this is luxury lodging: we’re set up inside a cow barn.(Damascus, VA)
Goodnight from our tent. It’s been a rainy day for mule travel. Julia and I are holed up waiting dryer weather. We’re here in Mike Johnson’s cow barn (Damascus, VA) cozy and dry, grateful for all the fine folks that have taken care of us during our mule ramble. Here’s what it’s like inside our tent tonight.
My mattress and pillow. It it all looks vaguely familiar that’s because it is. The “pillowcase” is my red bandana, a gift of my great mule buddy Ronald Hudson. The pillow “stuffing” is my pin stripe coveralls. My blanket is the wool blanket I use under my saddle. The “mattress” is my saddle pad. After a long day in the saddle, with the rain on the roof and the mules in the grass, it’s Heaven.
Mood lighting: this tiny, solar powered light provides plenty of light for us to eat, read and write by. Like much of our gear it was a gift from a friend. Thanks Doug!
