Independence Day Weekend
Ever since we arrived at this camp I’ve made several unsuccessful attempts to pick up an internet connection. In order to blog, I was driving 20 miles or so to Flaming Gorge Resort to connect with the WiFi available there. You can imagine my surprise and delight when I again try to connect from our camp and my Verizon “jetpack” aircard shows 1X with 3 bars!
I bust out of the door of the Best Little Trailer, twirling and singing, “I’m so happy! I’m so happy! I’m as happy as happy can beeeee!”
Spike tilts his head. Bridget squints her eyes.
“Oh, c’mere, Bridge. Dance with me, little girl!” I pick up her chubby body and twirl and sing. But not for long. I put Bridget back on the ground. Dang! That dog is HEAVY.
Nearly out of breath, I go back inside to my laptop.
This morning the connection is faster! I’m able to reply to the comments under the previous post and blog while sitting at my laptop table by the BLT’s big back window.
I miss being able to join you blogorinos whenever I feel like it. It’s like you’re having a party and I’m outside the door knocking and no one answers the door!
A two-headed chipmunk?
Early every morning the chipmunks come out to play, usually in pairs. They scamper up and down and around the white trunks of the aspens. Their merry chatter catches my attention. I grab the camera and capture these two (below).
Okay, now for a more serious subject . . .
It’s been my experience so far that every campsite, no matter how beautiful, has at least one drawback. Our campsite in the aspens is no exception. When I evaluated this site, I realized it’s spaciousness could attract clingers. (Clingers are RVers who park up close to another RV with no respect for space or privacy.)
Even with the possibility of clingers showing up, I find this site too lovely to pass up. I set up camp and recline in the lounger in my very private “reading room.”
Gee, it’s a holiday weekend. Nothing would ruin this site faster than clingers . . .
Hmm . . . what can I do?
“Aha! I know!”
I climb out of the lounger and walk over to the back of the Perfect Tow Vehicle. Rummaging around inside the PTV, I pull out one of the boards I keep for leveling. Ha! This will work fine!
Next, I search inside the BLT.
I find a wide-tip magic marker. Good! It still writes . . . A few minutes later I prop up the finished project at the entrance to our driveway.
How the hell do I know. I made them up!
Now if a clinger shows up . . . heh-heh . . . I have a script all ready in my devious little brain!
“Oh, helloooo!” (big smile)
“Gee, I know you won’t mind parking somewhere else so my family will have room for all their RVs and OHVs.” (smile, walk away with a wave) “
Just a lil’ ol’ lady in a hat trying to live life her way . . . .
I hope you do the same!
