I've always maintained that, at the end of the day, after 10+miles walking through sand, hills, corn stubble, rocks, wheat, swamp,etc. I would much rather hit the motel than the camper!
I figured after feeding dogs, charging devices, eating dinner, walking dogs and putting them up, cleaning birds and getting ready for the next day, I would much rather hit a clean motel room. What I found was I liked having my own place-warm and ready to go. I have all my clothing, food and "stuff" close at hand. I can get all the dogs inside with me, or, at least, the dog who was "mentioned in dispatches for conspicuous behavior"! I can relax, check the tube, take a shower and hit he rack while not worrying about bed bugs or how well this "no tell motel" was cleaned.
So, here I go in late August. I'll be towing my Timber Ridge all the way to Idaho, hunting along the way out and on the way back. I'm looking forward to it. The only way this could be a better hunt is if my wife were coming along.....think I'll work on that.
