I was totally ready to splurge on a hotel...I was grey...very grey.  I was tired.  I was still feeling a bit unenthusiastic about living in my van and being on the move....I checked out 4 hotels...they all SUCKED.  Seriously.  They smelled bad, and the beds were saggier than an old man's week old underwear...just bad.  So, I figured I would save the hotel for a better date down the road. 

Nov. 16,
One of the reasons I wanted to stop in Kanab, other than the movie history, and the fact that John Wayne and countless others hung out here while making tonnes of movies...was that I wanted to get a permit for hiking the "wave".  It was a lottery system.  There are 10 permits available on a first come first serve basis.  In the summers, there are over a hundred people vying for them.  I missed mine today by 10 minutes because I was LAZY.  I didn't get off my ass to go down there till noon.  Mainly, cause I wasn't expecting to get one....I figured they would have been gone by 9am....Turns out, if I had been there 10 minutes earlier, I would have got one for tomorrow, but another couple beat me.  So I went for a hike on the hills around town...it was really pretty.  I felt my body breathe a sigh of relief.  Cities stress me out!  I just sat there at the odd view point, and soaked up the wonderful peace of just being.  Thank God for undeveloped spaces and the gift of mother nature.  Feeling better.

Didn't win the lotto (had to be there by 8:45am).  I even drove down there with my top UP.  I guess I didn't have my second cup of coffee.  I didn't even notice this MAJOR f..k up until I came out of the BLM offfice....I must have been quite the site.  One fellow even commented after I had pulled it down...."were you the one driving down the road with your top up???"  Yup.  That would have been me.... I wasn't feelin' lucky....so I wasn't surprised by the fact that I didn't get the lotto...I just wasn't feelin' it. :(    

I figured I would head off to view the "toadstools" instead, as it was on my way to Page.
