Our first nights camp....everything is still clean and shiny....being that we are dirtbags, we only paid for a campsite one night the whole trip....that was in Yellowstone and it was only $5. Other than that we crashed in city parks, baseball fields, yards, churches, behind hotels using branches to hide our stuff, even the side of the road at times. Cops woke us up a few times, but when we explained what we were doing they were all cool with it and let us stay wherever we were. The best part was crashing by hotels and in the morning hitting up their continental breakfast!!!....gotta love being a dirtbag!
Right now, I'm off to La Crosse to do a little suffering in the Bufflands Epic Enduro Race.....let the fun begin!
