I spent an enjoyable weekend camping with Jeanne (dau) and Joe (son) and their spouses & kids. Donald’s Mom also came along on her first camping trip, and although I’m not sure what she really thought of it she was a very good sport.
I arrived at the campground first and set up my tent. The sites were nearly all empty, but a man and woman nearby were friendly. The man asked if I needed any help setting up my tent and I told him I could probably manage. He came over and helped me anyway, and the tent went up about 50% faster. I appreciated the assistance.
I finally got my car in for an oil change this afternoon. The yellow “Maint Reqd” light came on somewhere in Montana or Idaho, and I took the owner’s manual into the motel room that evening to see what the light was indicating. I drove about 6000 miles from purchase to oil change, so I was about 2k miles overdue. I wish I didn’t have that annoying light. I managed to get oil changes done regularly in my Ford truck, and didn’t need a light to remind me.
I have thought a lot about it and decided that I will cut back to maybe blogging once a week or whenever I have something to blog about. Since I’m not traveling, and since I’m primarily looking for housing and waiting for medical appointments, there is no reason to bore anyone with uninteresting details. Besides, when I blog about most non-travel-related subjects I seem to draw more criticism for my viewpoints than I really want to deal with.
So until something exciting or at least interesting happens, I’m taking a rest and giving you one as well.
