A Weekend in Which I Sleep in a Covered Wagon and Crash into a Vulture


Yep, it's a covered wagon bed.
Surprisingly comfortable, too.

No photos of the vulture I crashed into.
The vulture was snacking on a dead critter
in the middle of Hwy. 29.
He flew up, when he saw my truck coming,
and, SMACK,
hit the windshield.

  1. Novel idea haveing a covered waggon as a bed, least it is not out in the fresh air like the real ones were.

  2. Wonderful title and explanation. I'm quite ok there is no photo of the vulture but I am imagining him spread eagled on your windscreen! Perhaps I shouldn't make light of the situation I bet it was rather scarey!!
    Thank you for stopping by my post

  7. Fun bed!!! Am I right in my assumption that this is not your home??? Where were you when you stayed here???
    I'm probably more sorry for you about your windshield than the vulture...I have no big love for vultures...

  8. The covered wagon is at a bed-and-breakfast in Mason, Texas, northwest of Austin. Very cool bed.

  9. The vulture crashing into the the windshield was very, very scary. No damage to the truck, but the vulture, last seen swooping down limply to the ground, did not look too good.

  10. Very different, definitely a cool memory. That B&B must be serious about its theme!

    I'm glad you're okay. But poor bird :(

  12. Adults don't often get to sleep in novelty beds do they? The vulture incident sounds distressing for all involved.

  13. Yes, Louise, as much as I love watching birds, I didn't really like being up-close-and-personal with one.

  15. What a fun bed. Are you on vacation now? I thought you are a school librarian. Has school started for you? We went back to school this past week.

  16. It was last weekend, Anne. We went off to West Texas for Labor Day Weekend, to rest and rock hunt.

  18. I wouldn't want one like it in my house. You have to climb up on a box to get down from it. Would you want to do that every night?

  19. Was it a bit scary thinking you might roll away in the night?

  20. There were actually rocks next to the wheels.

  21. Ha, what a fun title!

  22. ... so did you have bad dreams in that covered wagon bed after your close encounter with the vulture? Ugh ... what a scary crunch!

  23. Fortunately the vulture crash happened on the way home.

  24. What?! I had to read the title of this post twice. Poor vulture. You are WAY more adventurous than me. :-)

  25. I tried to caution the poor vulture that it wasn't a good idea to snack on carrion right in the middle of the highway.
