After the over-nights at various places I finally settled in at a great boondocking spot behind Pilot Knob. I’ve been here since February 19th (13 days) and I do believe it is one of my favourite spots – second only to the Pond of course.
I chose a BIG front yard as my new piece of real estate…..
There are other RV’ers here – not so many that it feels crowded – but enough so I feel comfortable (safe).
It far enough in from the I-8 that you can barely even hear any traffic noise – certainly not bothersome at all. And if it doesn’t bother me then it has to be quiet ! LOL
There are actually several different boondocking places in this area. About 2 or 3 miles down the road (a really bad bumpy road) right in front of Pilot Knob RV Park there’s one place that I stayed at before. Didn’t really like it there that much because it is close to the Interstate and therefore lots of traffic noise.
Another area is behind Pilot Knob but it’s a LTVA (Long Term Visitors Area) so you have to pay for that – and I don’t like paying !!
And then there’s this one that I’m at.
I didn’t know about this one before but sure am glad I found it ‘cause I know I’ll be back here. ‘Supposedly’ there’s a 14 day limit but there is no Camp Host and I’ve yet to see a Ranger. People I’ve talked to who have been here longer than I have also have not seen a Ranger. Works for me !
Bennie loves it here ‘cause he doesn’t need to be on a leash.
And he’s made lots of friends. Meet Sassy…….(yes, that is her name). I told the Owners the story behind how I got my nickname.
And Bandit…..I was on the roof when I took that pic.
LOTS OF WALKING
Yes, I’m constantly walking now – to keep the stress down of that subject we’re not talking about. I walk down the road and count the poles – I decided 4 poles was plenty of distance to walk – it’s a HUGE distance in between those poles ya know !! LOL
Bennie runs ahead and then stops to wait for me…..
I’m sure there’s a least A MILE in between those poles !! But I try and do it twice a day and I’m up to five poles now.
GO AHEAD – LAUGH AT MY EXPENSE
‘Cause I’m fit to be laughed at for sure. I had bought these baby back ribs on my last shopping spree and decided one day to finally have them for dinner. Out comes my Cobb Grill, in goes about 10 briquettes and I fire it up. You gotta wait until the briquettes are nice and hot before you put the meat on.
I had already cut the package in 1/2 ‘cause I knew the amount would do me for two meals and I decided to cook both now – dinner ready for the next day as well !!
Don’t they look delicious….
As I was getting them ready to bring outside I noticed the inside of the ribs. Hmmmm, They look already cooked ?? Sure enough once I read the packaging it clearly said “Fully Cooked”. All I had to do was heat them up. Regardless they sure were tasty.
I have not been able to get a decent sunset picture this year !
IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD…..
Yes, That is what my day consists of now !! LOL One trip to Wally’s I came back with these desserts.
Normally I wouldn’t want that much sweet stuff in a year !! Oh Dear !!
