After an awesome four days at Zion, Ayo and I left the park yesterday afternoon in time to catch gorgeous views of Red Canyon right at sunset. (Post to come.) We’re boondocking in Dixie National Forest for a day or two before making our way over to Bryce. The weather here is cool and is a welcome change from Zion, where the temperatures hit 100 degrees each day.
This morning, Ayo decided to take advantage of the cool weather, our quiet spot and the nearby shade by pulling out her hula hoop. Ayo says that clothes are cumbersome when it comes to hooping, so she spent a good hour in the nude, rocking out to music with her hoop.
So a bit of time passes and a couple drives by on a dirt bike. The woman on the bike waves at Ayo, and Ay waves right back – totally down for being in her birthday suit, especially after our experience in the Dominican Republic. It turns out that the dirt bikers are also full-time RVers and they stop to chat for a half hour or so. All the while, Ayo is still hooping, and she comes over at the end to introduce herself.
If you think that this was our “Did this really just happen?” moment, you’d be mistaken. I exchange information with the couple, promising them good recommendations of boondocking spots. A few hours later, we receive this e-mail:
It was nice to meet you both. You said to email you about dispersed camping spots you know about near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Ted and I wanted to let you know how great it was to see your wife/girlfriend expressing herself. She has a beautiful body and should be proud of it. However, it did sexually arouse us to the point of having incredible sex when we got home. Thank you!
For that to have happened is one thing. But for them to have told us in their first email?! Definitely a “Did this really just happen?” moment.
On a quasi-related note, Ayo is starting to pick up a few hooping tricks. (She claims to be a beginner and that she needs to practice a lot to make it look smoother, but I disagree.) Check out the video below. It’s family-friendly, we promise. 🙂
