After 12 days in the mountains it was off to Moab for the first day of our road trip. It was sad to leave Vail as I love being in the cold. We hired a Jeep Wrangler for our road trip and it was a pretty tight squeeze for 2 blokes and a heap of ski gear. With no forward planning and no accommodation locked in we were just going to wing it. I was pretty happy to just wing it as I don’t like to plan to much or to far ahead but Andrew, my travelling buddy, normally plans everything via a massive spreadsheet. However, this time all he had done was mapped a route. A big call for him. Relying on the mobile network to have some sort of coverage so we could do a little research on the road to reserve a room somewhere hadn’t gone as planned. We just expected the mobile network and coverage to be pretty good but we were wrong. Andrew found a pretty cool looking camp site, or some may say “glamp site” just out of Moab consisting of Tee Pees and Luxury tents. He called ahead and booked us into a twin share luxury tent which we thought would be something different. We had visions of a camp fire out the front a few sausages on the fire and a few glasses of red wine. We pull into the drive of the site on what turns out to be one of their windiest days this year. Dust is blowing everywhere and everyone is covered in red dirt. We call into reception, a tent of course and proceed to check in. The guy checking us in reminds us that we have a luxury tent with views. I respond, “its sounds great as long as there is two beds as requested”. You are joking, was his reply. “Ah, no I’m not”. We may be good mates but we wont be climbing in the cot with each other. “Mmm let me see what I can do” he says. Will a stretcher bed be ok? I suppose it will have to, was my reply. Anyway, things turned out ok. They delivered us a stretcher bed for our $360 USD a night tent. We can’t light a proper camp fire outside but we have a small wood fire inside. Andrew fires it up to the point where inside the tent is so hot you can’t sleep in there. I put my stretcher bed out on the front porch and off I go to sleep. I managed to get to about 4am until I was just to cold and had to slide my little stretcher bed back into the tent to get warm.
