Our Favorite

June 13, 2017


I believe it was Wednesday that we got here...the campsite was almost empty. Camp-host and another couple in their trailer were the only campers... After listening the river roar for two days and nights this place was heaven to my ears...complete silence...

Someone told me one time, that once you back in to the place, don't try to adjust or straighten the trailer, just leave it. With my OCD ...I have a hard time to follow this advise. I always have to make sure I am parked straight, the lines of the site and trailer are aligned parallel...then I am happy camper. I always have been this way. On all my travels and all the camping I did I always been very peculiar about the sites I chose... Sometimes I go back and forth between couple of sites before I chose "the right spot"... Having 5th Wheel is harder to be picky but still, I try...

After my parking charade is complete, the rest of the set up is a breeze. While I set up outside Beth takes care the inside chores including making us refreshments so we could toast for a successful arrival and enjoy the place. Here is Beth enjoying a glass of Chamapgne..

I on the other hand kick my shoes off and take shots of tequila... It just makes everything better...

This is also perfect time to write entry to our travel diary and make couple of sketches of our surroundings. Some day I will share our illustrations with you guys... Meanwhile you will have to enjoy the pictures...

Not long after we got here controlled fire started on the opposite ridge and burned until we left. You can see the smoke on the ridge in the distance... Lucky us the wind was just right and the air in the camp was fresh and delicious...


   I heard a funny story some time ago, about meth addicts collecting pee bottles on the side of the road and drinking it in hopes to get the"fix". The rumor is that the truck drivers use drugs to stay up while driving and tossing bottles with their pee out of the windows. Based on this legend the meth stays in the urine so that's mean that roadsides are covered with bottles of free drugs...that's if you get the right bottle...

I told this story to Beth couple of days ago so she makes the trap (with a margarita instead the pee) and places it along the road next to the campground...


     It was not a long wait until this guys showed up, snatched the bottle and emptied to the bottom...


     We spend the next couple of days in a peace and quiet. Enjoyed each others company...

   We also had a pleasure to meet a wonderful couple: Pam and Randy who camped next to us. We could not ask for the better neighbors... Hope to see them again some day...

Next day the "Mountain Mist" sneaked up on us and we were treated with some nice, slow on & off rain... I miss rain a lot, so rainy day is a special treat for us...

      Having 5th Wheel trailer makes camping in the rain a pleasure...

       This was a real relaxing mini vacation. Can not wait for the next trip...
