Woke up too late this morning, after sunrise. Saw 5 or 6 jackrabbits but no cottontails, and of course the jacks won't let me get close enough. My trick of placing teddy-bear cholla cuttings around my food plants seems to be working. I wish I'd thought of it sooner.

Wind is blowing like crazy, and I'm still dithering on how to rig a collapsible sail to my bike and/or dirtboard. Hell, I could get to El Paso in 3 or 4 hours in a wind like this.

Using flour to "dry-shampoo" my hair, that is, get the oils out of it, is working well. I tried baking soda a couple of times too, but the results weren't as good. Just rub the flour in, then brush it out. Gives me a preview of what I'll look like with white hair, too! Once a week seems to be good enough to keep the dreadlocks from forming. I'm using whole wheat flour, since that's all I ever buy, but white should work also.
