Friday

Camping with the Svecs, Walshes and Wellses. I got the camper all hitched up and loaded up. It was nice to be able to have the AC going while I loaded. Big thanks to Robert for the plug-in at the house! It's about 20° cooler than the last time I camped. I had to air up tires in the camper and the truck before I left. We took a little ride on the mule to go down to the store to go check in but we were too late and they had already closed. The Svecs were in charge of hamburgers for the night. It was cool enough so we had a fire in the solo stove. There was a big huge moon that came up, but the camera just doesn't do it justice. It was a nice night but I retired a little early. 


Saturday

The Walshes made breakfast tacos. My brother came out and brought the dogs and we walked around the loop that we were on and walked over to the other loop. 🌮 I seasoned all the taco meat and had everything ready for lunch when everybody got back. Note to self: Breaker trips if you run griddle and electric frying pan at the same time. We took naps in the afternoon and then went riding around on the mule. We had our bring your own steak night and another fire in the solo stove.

Sunday

We did breakfast at my campsite. Breakfast tacos made from the leftover steak and potatoes plus added extras. 

After the Walshes left we took a ride with the Wellses on their Polaris. When we were going around the edge of the lake toward that little knoll, we got stuck all the way down to the frame and we had to call a friend to come get the other mule and come get us out. We had beer so we made it a fun time. 

Saw an Eagle!
