LOW RENT DISTRICT

 I AM CAMPED IN THE Tonto National Forest.  There are no fees and no facilities, so pick a spot and call it home.  I had a great night setting up.

COYOTES, MOONLIGHT, AND STARS…

FOLLOWED BY A 2:30 AM VISITOR; 10 FEET FROM MY BACK DOOR.

HE SAID HE HAD CAMPED HERE FOR TWO WEEKS AND WAS STAYING.

THE COUNTY SHERIFF SUGGESTED HE FIND ONE OF THE

OTHER MILLION ACRES IN THE NATIONAL FOREST TO SQUAT ON

BUT WHO WAS WATCHING LITTLE SILLY MOUNTAIN WHEN SOMEONE WAS CONDUCTING ANIMAL SACRIFICES IN THE NIGHT?  SANTA RIA?  MAYANS?    NOW WHO’S THE ALIEN?
