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. Camping with friends. It's a CAMPound! 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. Menu included 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. 


We had breakfast tacos, coffee and Mimosas in the morning. Note to self: Breaker trips if you run griddle and electric frying pan at the same time. 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 from their doings. 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.


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

Took a ride on the 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 and no specific timeline so we made it a fun time. 

Saw an Eagle!

It's always a sad time when it's time to pack everything up and go home.
