So, we stopped by the Ostrich Farm on our way to Auga Caliente for camping. Not only does this place sell ostrich jerky, but you can also get wood there (and did MIKEY need wood). ANYWAYS, I thought it extremely ridiculous and somewhat of a joke to see that wood was $25/wheel barrel full! We had the whole back of Mike's truck to fill with wood, and @ $25 a small wheel barrel??? Yikes! Especially when at home we can practically get it for free (at a physical cost maybe, but its still cheaper). I just think if funny. One would think that since trees in the wilderness are in the wilderness, you could just get wood for free. But like the rest of recreation in California, people use the "Great Outdoors" as a way to make money (yet another thing to capitalize after). I just hope some people think this is as funny and I did. Ha, ha...needless to say, we ended up getting a deal at $50 to fill the back of the truck (Jose was winking quite a bit at the guy, but I just thought he had something in his eye...?). So, I guess I should be happy since we did need wood. WORD.
P.S. This is the 1st of will hopefully be many blogs on this site...a new year, a new blog site. Yeah, for 2008!
