Road Notes: Day 138


I don't think I will ever get used to these views. Every day, we wake up, open the window, and get to stare at the looming, snow-capped Wheeler Peak. It reminds you of your smallness. But, like, in a good way.

We’ve gotten in the habit of waking up together. I make Branden coffee and pack his lunch because I am a fucken awesome girlfriend. He puts on as much Carhartt as possible and heads off to the the mines I mean class. I spend the rest of my day dancing in the RV and eating cookies. Despite how much fun RV dancing is, I want to get out a little more. Today I dropped Branden off and went into town to work at a nearby coffee shop. Even if you are doing the same exact shit, sometimes a change of scenery is nice. Also, coffee in this town is really good. I haven’t had bad coffee yet.

I worked on some editing and emails and whatnot. It was a pretty bland day, to be honest. I do like this town and can’t wait to discover it a bit more. I think that every time I go into Taos for some reason. There seems to be a lot to discover. However, I am not sure if I would want to live here long term. It seems a bit touristy, and I really don’t think I’m a ‘mountain’ person. I am in awe of the beauty of the scenery here often. But when I think about the cold and snow, it kinda loses it’s charm a little bit. I think after traveling so much the past few months, it has reminded me how much I feel rejuvenated by the ocean and by the desert. If we stop moving, I hope it is in one of those terrains.

Road Notes are timed entries—written in thirty minutes or less at the end of each day. Considerations are made for spelling/legibility but not for grammar. Deal with it.
