Here are the final pictures of the van (minus bedding and bike). There will be a bit of tidying a downsizing as time progresses as I have a number of textbooks that I still need to get rid of as well as more books than I rightly need as might be obvious in some of the pictures (1 1/2 shelves and 1/2 of the blue rubbermaid are full of books). Atleast I won't lack for quality reading materials! Now to head North along the Western slope to climb in Unaweep and Escalante Canyons south of Grand Junction and to hopefully meet up with friends and family in Glenwood/Carbondale to climb and mountain bike in Rifle and the surrounding area. Part one of this adventure is about to commence. As my now ex-roommate John put it, "It's the end of a dynasty, The Mountain Palace is on it's last ditch stand against the attack of the "real world." Although the Palace may fall it's inhabitants will continue their fight against this formidable enemy through: living in vans and cars; making money living outside; escaping the grid for weeks at a time; making music; and to all who resist the temptation of grown up jobs! Fight on my Mountain Palace"
