If you really want to enjoy breakfast, first take a long hike through a pine forest.
That’s what the crew and I do this morning.
By the time we get back to camp, the idea of two eggs over easy is uppermost in my mind. Bridget and Spike soon figure out it’s an egg morning. I always cook one for them, too.
I miss having a working camera.
I don’t have any photos of our morning hike.
So I’m online looking for a replacement while my brain-dead Sanyo is hooked up to life support. After a long charge, I try for signs of life, not expecting any change, and bingo! The lens opens!
I’m so pleased with the fact that I don’t have to lay out any money for a new camera that I click on over to amazon.com and spend some!
I order two black suits for the crew.
Their mesh harnesses are ratty-looking, especially since Bridget took a bite out of Spike’s. It’s a challenge figuring out the correct size.
I put the tape measure around Bridget at the neck and around her chest. Every time I do this I get a different measurement, depending upon the location of fat rolls.
At $20 a pop, I hope the extra-large size is correct. It’s the Puppia brand and I know they tend to run small.
I also order two water-related items.
One is a Camco RV water bandit ($6.05) which allows a hose to be hooked up to a spigot that has no threads. The other is a Valterra Quick-Fill with Shut-Off ($6.72), a hose attachment that keeps the water from splashing back when you’re filling the tank.
And I finally order a monocular.
It’s a Tasco Essentials 10 x 25 compact monocular costing only $10.82. All these items, including $40 for the mesh harnesses, total only $29.37 because of all the points I’ve collected buying gas and groceries with my Chase Amazon credit card.
Making an online order is a commitment to stay in one locale.
The items will be sent to the Munds Park post office, so I won’t be straying far until they arrive. In the meantime, I’m going to take the PTV in to Flagstaff Auto for an oil change. I found their website and sent an email to set up an appointment for Thursday morning. I want to take good care of the Perfect Tow Vehicle.
I really should head up to South Dakota this summer and renew my driver’s license.
It’s probably not a good idea to drive around with South Dakota plates and registration with a Georgia driver’s license!
