On the return from our morning walk to the day use area, Reggie and I greet fellow campers whom we met previously.
Reggie and Jasper rush toward each other to exchange good morning greetings.
Later . . . .
“Hi! Just a second. I’ll be right out!” I slip Reggie into his camo suit, pick him up, and step outside, immediately hooking him to the tether that hangs from the assist handle by the door.
It’s the camp host.
“I’m going around making sure everyone knows strong winds are expected. They’re saying gusts up to 50 miles per hour. In this canyon they could go higher. Make sure stuff is put away. I know you don’t need me to tell you this . . . . Also no campfires.”
He shakes his head. “Believe me, some people do need to be told.”
He’s right about that!
More than once I’ve watched campers build a big fire on a windy day. Which reminds me of thegroup of three guys who camped here in tents for one night.
In the morning one guy packs up his tent and leaves. Shortly thereafter another guy packs up his tent and leaves. Then the third guy packs up his tent and leaves. The only thing the three guys leave behind is a fire blazing in the fire ring!
After sunset the wind does arrive. It’s much weaker than predicted. A few, strong gusts rock the Best Little Trailer during the night. That’s it.

After breakfast Reggie and I walk to the day use area as part of our usual exercise regimen.
Another gorgeous morning . . . . Well, this is our last walk at Cedar Pocket. All I have to do is hitch up, secure the inside of the BLT, check the oil, and we’ll hit the road.
Make a stop at Littlefield to pick up my mail. Dump tanks at the first Mesquite exit. We’re good for propane. Stop at Wal-Mart at the next exit. Pick up bottled water. Oh, and this time I’ll remember to buy batteries for my toothbrush!
A few more photos before we leave Cedar Pocket . . . .

Fifteen days ago we drove past this sign. The time flew by!
Reggie and I could stay at Cedar Pocket for months.
It’s only $90 a month and there isn’t a time limit for camping. Sure, there are the usual annoyances that are a part of living near people. Overall, it’s a quiet camp, the people are nice, and, boy, Reggie meets lots of friends!
Even so, it’s best that we move camp now.
I like to leave a camp while still wanting to stay!
