Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s campsite.
I say, why not? The only other camper in Williamson River National Forest Campground is, of course, in the sunniest site. That’s because they don’t have a solar panel. It’s also the nicest site. So I covet, covet, covet. I’m so covetous that I don’t unhitch lest I miss an opportunity to get that site.
I’m outside wandering around with my morning coffee in hand when I see the motorhome leave.
I spring into action! I throw stuff, including the crew, into the PTV and the BLT, roll up the awning, remove the chocks, etc., put the stuff on the kitchen counter on the floor, and a few minutes later, we’re in our new campsite!
The angle of the site is good. By that I mean the refrigerator side of the BLT is shaded without needing the awning.
It’s been a long time since we’ve camped with a water spigot available.
One of the reasons — and there are many — why I love my PTV is it’s a vehicle that I chose entirely by myself. What a good decision that was!
I also clean the dirtiest part of the BLT, the front end. I’ll finish that another day.
Bill and Ann come by.
Bridget and Spike like having some canine company. I wonder if they rememnber these pals they met last winter.
Bill likes to fix things (at least that’s what people who need things fixed say about him). I casually mention that my house battery probably needs water.
The last time I saw Bill and Ann, I casually mentioned my house battery probably needs water and Bill promptly put water in it.
You see, I can’t get the dang thing out of the compartment.
The opening is too small and the battery is too heavy. Anyway . . . As I expected, Bill finds the battery in dire need of water and remedies the situation.
Bill volunteers as the interpretive guide at the Logging Museum at Collier Memorial State Park. He gives tours of the logging equipment and artifacts. Ann volunteers in the gift shop. They’re living the high life over at the state park with full hook-ups, showers, laundry . . . at no cost.
Tomorrow Ann, Bill, Sammy, Julie, Spike, Bridget and I go on a water adventure!
P.S. Bridget’s injured leg continues to make great progress.
