Moby Goes for the Unexpected

Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me. 

–Carl Sandburg

Wandering around in the van is like shopping at a thrift store: if you’re looking for something, you will be disappointed. But if you’re looking for nothing, things surface.

We’ve found unlooked-for-things during recent trips to the Owyhee Canyon country of SE Oregon. There is a lot of ground to cover out here, and if you wander around on foot, you’ll come across interesting things.
