The holiday season brought snow, snow, snow and cows to our slopes of Jawbone. Even though we were back on our side of the mountain, the far side was still reaching us. Morning of day three, windshield had to defrost, and when the ice had cleared there was a ginormous crack. Had to get that replaced. Day five, Eric goes off for a run, comes back limping, took off his shoe, he had an extra ankle bone. Undaunted, we restored on, braving the sun turning into wind turning into cold and back to sun again. It’s nice when the chemtrails come out and it’s consistently chilly. Marko showed us all the stars (like Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer? No.) for his EE. On the last day of hitch we said farewell to Eric, who had made plans to leave after this hitch, because his New Hampshire mountains were calling to him.
