And what a most excellent trip it was! Spent a day driving there, two days in Yellowstone, then a day coming back. Kind of a quick â€œcampingâ€ trip but well worth it. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy spending time with my Schweetie!
Got back in about 2000 last night and had time for a quick shower before hitting the rack. Tired! So tired I fell asleep almost as soon as my head hit the pillow. Havenâ€™t done that in years.
Today, I had to set the tent trailer back up to clean it out. Started washing the dirty clothes we accumulated over the past 4 days. Re-washed the dishes from the trailer. Took the Dog for a walk. Trip to the Post Office to pick up a box of her deceased Uncleâ€™s old pictures the in-laws sent us. Started our dishes. Took my radio out of the truck and set up back up in my room and made sure itâ€™s working okay. Mowed â€œmyâ€ yard. And itâ€™s only 1320!
The 2014 Yellowstone trip-Day 1
Got up at 0300. Out of the house by 0400. What a lovely day! Started out kind of misty but cleared up by the time we hit I-90. Trailer handles just fine but my truck can really slow down going up hill. Depending on the grade of the up part. Made a few stops for gas and â€œrestâ€ stops but pulled into Ennis, Montana around 1900. Plenty of time to set up the tent and get a shower before collapsing in bed. Even saw some streaks of lightning before turning off I-90 in Whitehall. Cool!
Of course, I uploaded my (unsorted) pictures to my Flickr account already. Go take a look!
Nice! Having some Thunder. Gotta unplug my antennaâ€™s.
Maybe more later. Gotta post this so I can move things around. Headache now. Wx change brings them on.
Although, SWMBO and I did go to the pizza party/Red Cross presentation the Olympia Amateur Radio Service Club gave us for â€œwinningâ€ our bet about Field Day last year last night. Met KE7PHU and others in Shelton then car-pooled down to Olympia and back. It was a nice â€œpartyâ€ and presentation.
Didnâ€™t get back home until just before my usual bedtime. I was so tired that I read only about an hour before falling asleep with the light on and my Kindle laying on my chest.
Speaking of my chest: Been having some pains around my heart the past couple of days. Especially when I exert myself. Think maybe I ought to go to the Naval Hospital and get myself checked out. Maybe I ought to do that tomorrow after SWMBO takes me to Taco Bell for lunchâ€¦
Not much else going on. Downloaded a program called S10 Password Vault and have been changing all my passwords at all my different sites to some ridiculously complicated passwords. Forgot that Iâ€™d have to change them in this Live Writer program. Already had to change the passwords on my phone for a couple of accounts and will probably have to do more. What a pain! Thank you spammers and hackers! We, the normal people just trying to get along, really appreciate your efforts to fuck the lot of us.
Still way too cold outside and Iâ€™m still doing my normal daily routine stuff. Both my Twilight Zone discs I got today from Netflix were broke so Iâ€™m not going to be wasting any time watching those! Hell, I may have to watch some of those tv shows Iâ€™ve been downloading the past couple of daysâ€¦
Damn, I wish we had these ships now! I want so much to go to the stars and look around. Explore strange new worlds. Seek out new life. New civilizations.
