On the Road: 4 Months in a Tent

The odometer reading this morning read 1,237 miles, and it was 5:35am when I pulled the truck out the gate of our property. At 4:30am the sweet little chiring of my bedside clock annoyed both of us up out of deep slumbers. I hit the snooze button and rolled over. Then my brain kicked into…
