Today is our last day at Red Mountain Campground.
After a week, it’s time for a new adventure! The past few days I enjoy getting to know one of my blog readers, Dorothy from Oregon. She travels in a beautiful, 27-foot Born Free Class C. That’s her Honda toad next to it in the photo below.
We sit underneath her big awning.
We talk about RVing and travel (of course), books, how we prepared for retirement, and so on. Dorothy is tech-savvy from her career days. Naturally I pick her brain.
She shows me her marvelous Ipad with its apps for RVers. Oooh, apps to die for. I want an Ipad! Gee, my “second generation” kindle could be replaced with a spiffy kindle paperwhite like Dorothy’s, too. Covetousness, thy name is RVSue!
I successfully replace two fuses in the box under the PTV’s driver’s seat!
Pause for applause. I also open up the fuse box located under the hood, knock on the relay a bit, throw a piece of bacon over my left shoulder, pour salt in my shoe, hop in the PTV, and, with fingers crossed, turn on the air conditioning and fan. Oh please, oh please . . . Drats! As of this time, neither the air conditioning nor the fan works. Pause for boos.
That’s as much as I’m going to fool with it.
Thanks to everyone who tried to help me, but I know when I reach my limit. At our next stop I’ll look for an auto store or auto repair place. And I will hold my head up high for having tried my best.
A week without internet in the BLT is the pits!
I’ve been driving to the tiny town of Norris once or twice a day in order to do the blog-thing and answer emails. It’s true . . . You really appreciate something once it’s gone. I can’t call to make an appointment or get online to research future camps. Maybe our next camp will pick up a signal. All I need is one bar for my Wilson antenna to work its magic.
I love a bargain!
I stop at the Thrift Store in Bozeman and pick up a new-looking Nine West purse that suits me perfectly ($3.00 . . . bwa-ha-ha…)
The otters are here!
Promptly after writing that I don’t see any otters in the river, they stick up their brown and wet noggins, making an appearance right before dark and at daybreak. Magpies, otters, and
Pelicans . . .
(I couldn’t get close to the pelicans so I had to enlarge the photo, hence the focus isn’t great.)
Pelicans are something else.
They look dopey sitting on a rock with this big ol’ bag hanging from their beak. Yet they are expert fishers, dipping that bag along the water’s edge. And when they take to the sky, oh what a sight! They float with grace and beauty.
By the way . . .
I need to get Bridget and Spike back to work on this blog. First thing ya’ know, they’ll be expecting an unemployment check.
THANK YOU, RVSUE SHOPPERS! Every order, large or small, tells me I’m appreciated. That means a lot to me!
