Camping By The River

It is winter, pretty cold out, but no ice on the road. Perfect for a day away from the civilized world. Packed up the Wolf Pup and off I went.

No beeping IV pumps or ventilator alarms. All I can hear is the gentle flow of the river. No one around except these two cartoon cut outs; photo bombing every shot I take.

Time out for lunch. Beans, hotdogs, chips, river water, and deer sausage. Life is good.

That is not river water… I was just trying to be funny.

Letting the gear dry. Almost ready to head out back to civilization.

No clouds today.

Still cold but mild night for winter camping. Heading home toward city traffic.

StarvingCartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.
