That ol’ corny saying is true, “There’s a first time for everything.” Well, RVSue and her canine crew move this morning to Cadillac Ranch RV Park in Bluff, Utah. The crew and I have never stayed in a private RV park before!
Of course, I always look at the financial angle.
I need to dump waste tanks, as well as fill up the water tank and the water jugs (Chuck tells me the water tastes good at Cadillac Ranch). To do these things costs at least $10, maybe more, at most places.
One night at Cadillac Ranch costs $25. One night at Sand Island Campground costs $5. So for an additional $20 I’m getting $10 worth of dump and water. The other $10 gives us electric hook-up (air conditioning!) and . . . drum roll please . . .
Did you feel the earth beneath you shake? Did your heart skip a few beats? I almost titled this post, “Breaking news! RVSue takes a shower!”
Chuck and Geri move into Cadillac Ranch, too.
Camp manager Diana gives us neighboring campsites.
She suggests I park in the opposite direction so our doors and awnings face each other. I set up the pen between our homes-on-wheels for my crew and theirs. Later we combine our efforts for dinner. We walk Radar, Doogie Bowser, Spike, and Bridget around the park. American coots, a heron, and ibises frequent the park’s pond. A pet emu lives in back of the park.

Cadillac Ranch is a quiet place. The crew and I sleep well. Geri and I enjoy some conversation while sitting in camp chairs outside. I take care of the tasks for the BLT, break camp, and the crew and I head back to Sand Island where I back the BLT into the same site we had before.
Canine Corner: “RV Friends” by Bridget
Today is my day to blog. Spike wants to butt in, of course. Too bad. For once, he’s going to have to wait his turn.
Spike and I have two RV friends, Doogie Bowser and Radar.
Doogie (that’s what we call him because we’re pals) looks like he might be one of those stuck-up kind of dogs, but, believe me he’s not. He’s a friendly, down-to-earth guy. He is very loyal to Mr. Chuck, which I think is kind of rude to Ms. Geri, but she doesn’t seem to mind.
Anyway, Doogie has this trick he does to get treats. He stands on his back legs and puts on his cute face. What a funny guy!
Radar has teddy bear fur. He can make his ears stick out straight from the sides of his head. And he has funny little eyes that slant. At first I thought he was weird. Now that I’ve had a chance to get to know him, I think he’s cute. When we were out walking, he kissed me! He loves Ms. Geri very much, kind of like how I love RVSue.
