|Road trip essentials|
I was unable to get much scouting done last time I was in AZ, so I'm excited to see the trails on this trip. Afterward, I head home to direct the Deception Pass Marathon & Half in early June... then run the Bighorn 100 in mid-June...then work party for the Bigfoot 200 at Mt. Adams in late June... then to Colorado for the Colorado 200 (racing, woohoo!) in July... then to Mt. St. Helens to direct the first annual Bigfoot 200 ... then to Tahoe in late August/Sept to direct the Tahoe 200... and on and on and on.
Luckily this year I have hired a few extra people and I am excited to be handing off more of the business work for my own sanity and because Destination Trail LLC is GROWING! Yay!!
Here are some pics from my trip so far.

|River trying to sleep in the car. She's my RD sidekick, but mostly she keeps me entertained (see pic above) and takes me on walks.|
|Finally got my license plate on my "new" not so new car.|

|getting excited about a run! I always find secluded back roads to camp on, this was one I visited on my last trip to AZ (it's in OR) and wanted to explore. Lookout Mountain|

|This is my record, 41 miles with the gas light on. Pretty worried I was going to have to run to the next gas station. Made it, amazingly.|
|Running in Idaho from another awesome spot I camped at. I've become quite the expert at finding semi-legal (secluded) camping spots.|
|Running in Idaho. I try to run everyday. I begin the morning with coffee and core exercises then run, then drive...|
|Like to see these signs... unless I need to drive through there :)|

|More road tripping food: tuna, spicy nut mix, avocado and truffle infused balsamic vinegar|
|When I need to shower (or want to) I use my 7gal water dispenser. It only takes 1-2 gals to wash the hair and essentials.|
|Another travel essential: WAZE, it can tell you when cops are present. I like that very much.|
