Camp has been very quiet as far as wild life goes.
Supper time and we done up chicken on the grill,tried to be nice guy later and do up some chocalate chip muffins.
Not used to camper oven,,got all mad because I burnt muffins,so mad that whole muffin tin and all went into fire,,they were done by about 6am on Saturday morning.

Quiet rainy day,,alot of rain,,tarp worked out good.
Pounding on side of camper ,flashlight going ,thought it was park rangers,,here young kid out spotlighting,slid off of road and into pole,power line down accross roadway,had to drive into Medix Hotel to use their phone,no cell phone service out there and thankfully they were still open.
It was a long night with all the red lights and power company finally got new lines ran about 5:30 in the am.
Bought bottle of moonshine Sat. afternoon,pretty good but nothing like my sister brings me up from Virginia.
Sunday pretty quiet,rained alot,spent most of day in camper.
Monday morning cold and damp,quick breakfast of egg and cheese sandwichs.
Bill took a bad coughing fit,so bad he actually passed out and hit back of head off of the fire ring.Laid his head open pretty good,big goose egg to boot.
So to be safe,I busted camp down and we drove back into town and trip to the ER.Bill is ok,but we ended camp 4 days early,but better safe then sorry.
