Tres Hermanas Ride
02 October 2011 | Columbus, NM
We took the "Thing" out of the bed of the truck for a ride. Tres Hermanas is the destination. We loaded up the fur buts and a 6 pack cooler with snacks and drinks for us and the dogs and off we go. Everything was going good up until it died. Yes, it died. Russ check it out and it would not start. Now it is about a four mile walk out with dogs in tow. Taco does great in the sun and loved the walk. Lucy on the other hand does not do well in the sun. You can tell how she is doing by watching her tail. Yes that's righ her tail. She starts out with the tail straight up and then it slowly lowers until it is completly down. When it gets to about half mast I pick her up. We are constantly giving her water. Give her water and her tail goes straight up and is good for another 10 minutes or less. This is how it went for four miles. It is a good thing I had my cell phone. When I had signal I called Mom and dad to come to pick us up. The four mile hike out was to where mom and dad was to pick us up. Then is was about another 10 minute ride back to the trailer to pick up the truck. It is also a good thing that we had a GPS to mark the location of the "thing".
We jump into the truck and drive to the "Thing" and hook up a bridle to tow the thing home. I drove the truck and Russ was in the thing. In order to stay off the main road and not get a ticket for towing without a hitch we went through hill and dale and even had to use the 4 wheel drive. It took a long time to get her home but we made it.
