Saw my first and second coyote today, they were to far away to get pics but neat to see anyway. The canal has about dried up its going to be a little more difficult to get water I'll have to think about it more.
A few miles before stopping for the nite a man pulled up and asked if I needed aa ride I said no but did he know if there was a house close to the canal where I could get water, he said 2 miles up there was one we said our goodbyes and I sat for a quick break in about 5 minutes here he comes back bringing 2 bottles of water "just in case noone was home" at the house. wasn't that great people here are so helpful, I forgot to mention that the lady at the McClusky Motel did my laundry for me yesterday what a treat for me.
