to be fair we mostly stayed in motels because it was pretty cheap to split between the three of us, plus shower and mini-fridge were a big bonus in the motel room since we didn't have space to bring more than basic camping gear.
Still really nice to wake up on the mesa though…now that I've got some good sites scouted I know where to go next year for a longer stay
Do you have any experience with the solar car-battery chargers Craig? I don't like the idea of draining my battery in the middle of nowhere but curious if that would work. I forgot about the expedition coolers by coleman, that's probably still the best way to go…I used to have one until someone pilfered it from my backyard (who steals a used cooler?)
