SWMBO got next Monday (Memorial Day) off so we thought weâ€™d go camping. Except every RV park within decent driving distance (for a long weekend) that Iâ€™ve checked has had no empty spots. Iâ€™m beginning to wonder if I did the right thing with this RV stuff. Doesnâ€™t seem like one can â€œspontaneouslyâ€ go camping anymore.
Most of the â€œcampgroundsâ€ Iâ€™ve looked at on Google Earth are simply large parking lots crammed full with RVâ€™s packed tighter than Obamaâ€™s ass (what with his head being up there and all). RV Parks in cities really kind of crack me up. Camping, to me, is getting out of the city and into the country to enjoy a bit of â€œNature.â€ But, I guess people would want to visit cities too. (I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley down L.A. way. South El Monte mostly.)
So, I donâ€™t know. Guess Iâ€™m going to have to learn to schedule camping out way in advance of when we want to. That means locking SWMBO down to finding out what days she will have (or will take) off work and where we want to go. Which sounds like work instead of fun. But maybe I just donâ€™t have the right mind-set. Yet.
Weather must be changing cause Iâ€™m getting a bit of a headache. Reports of lightning in Shelton this morning. MJ on Q13Fox says scattered showers. I need to move to Arizona!
And, indeed, it is. Has. Much cloudier, and a damned site cooler, today. Cool enough for me to wear my coat. Heard some thunder this morning too. That was cool. At least the headache didnâ€™t actually happen.
Well, found a place to camp so weâ€™re definitely, probably, going and Iâ€™ve been getting ready to go. Two days out with my Schweetie! Woo Woo! Lucky we have a built-in house sitter thatâ€™ll be here. The campground is in Hoquiam; which is only a couple of hours away.
Picked SWMBO up at the bus stop in town. Stopped by Safeway for last minute items and gas (man! It was busy!) Got the trailer hooked up and ready to go. Itâ€™s pretty much loaded except for last minute â€œstuff.â€ (Nexus 7, Camera, Stuff.) And itâ€™s time for me to hit the rack!
