It had been awhile but Joey recently convinced me to head out on an off-roading adventure. Mostly because the San Berdoo trail ends inside Joshua Tree National Park and it's hard to so no to a day trip to Joshua Tree.
And about 15 minutes in we were already out of the trucks and fixing something. I swear the guys live for stuff like that. Luckily it wasn't our truck this time.
The last time we did this trail was in 2014. I think we have aged pretty damn well.
This time it was cold. Like mega, wear as many layers as you can cold. Check out the safety first twinsies..
When we are not working we are playing. But probably still talking about work.
A hill that our truck could not make it up.
Joshua Tree is beyond gorgeous. Pictures can never do it justice.
We made a stop to explore around some amazing rocks.
It also was a pit stop. If there is one thing I really really hate to do is pee outside. Like I really really hate it. It's the main reason I will opt out of off road trips.
Of course when you are in such beautiful nature you must take some selfies. Joey caught me getting those good angles with the good light.
And the actual selfie. You can even see Joey in my glasses. That yellow jacket makes him easy to spot anywhere.
Then a real picture. This may be the only picture Joey has ever taken of me on his phone.
We got into the park with the intentions of grilling up some food and hanging out but we got out of the car for about 3 minutes when we called it. It was like biting cold. So instead we headed into the town in search of a restaurant that could sit our big group.
|I felt seen by this.|
Karla made some calls and found the Tiny Pony Tavern. From the outside it looked a little sketchy. It turned out to be a really cool and fun place with great food and strong mimosas. It was such a great find and I hope we get to back again soon!
After we said our goodbyes to the group Joey and I headed to the Joshua Tree Distillery. We have always wanted to stop by and do a tasting and since we were in the neighborhood we went for it. For $20 you get to taste 4 items. It can be liquor neat or one of their mixed drinks. I was very excited to try the Giant Rock Gin. Giant rock has always been special to us. Remember THIS? We tried the gin and whiskey and the whiskey ginger cocktail and the Gin Tom Collins. Everything was so good and we came home with a bottle of Giant Rock Gin.
As usual with these adventures, it was a perfect day. Despite having to pee behind a rock.
