🚘 40 miles round trip - 10 mph

This was the first trip with the Silverado. I can see around both sides of the camper without extensions on the mirror! My brother joined me for a little while and helped me get the fire going. The grill was really nice and we made our steak for supper. πŸ₯© Lots of pelicans were out on the lake today and there were quite a few deer out. After dark, I had the laser lights shining on the trees and it look like fireflies bouncing around. It was really quiet in the park. There was no sounds of AC is running or anything like that like it usually is in the summertime. Most people were pretty quiet and there was no loud music to break the calm. There was an armadillo that was digging around in the leaves after dark and he was very intent on what he was doing and didn’t run off even when I walked over and shined the light on him. It was a very peaceful night. It was pretty chilly (low 40's) and I had the "fireplace" space heater going and 3 blankets on the bed. I was toasty and even had to take one of them off in the middle of the night. I wish my little camping buddy was here with me. I'm going to miss her so much. 

I got up in the morning and started another fire and put the coffee on. ☕ What makes coffee taste so much better when it's at a campsite? I got out all the stuff to make breakfast tacos. Way more than I needed for just one person. Took a walk around the campground to check out some of the other sites on the next loop over. A lot of the campers were from northern states and most started tearing everything down and leaving in the morning. I waited around until lunchtime to pack up. I went and hit the dump station and then came home. It was a nice trip, but too quick. 

If you look close, you can see Pelicans flying low on right side of grill
