My first mobile blog entry.

Good enough phone, unprivileged user account, lots of enthusiasm, let’s see what we can do.

I had to go move some hay but forgot my camera (phone). I rode past 200 ‘wild’ (rodeo stock) horses. If it weren’t so chilly I could have stayed another hour watching, inspecting, jokingly naming some and just enjoying the scene. They would come to the fence, but quickly flee if I approached.

After much consideration, mostly economical, I decided to carry the furniture I am driving 3,000 miles.
