Aspen campers evidently have a rain switch

Every time this year we figure on going camping it rains.  We usually have several nights spent in the Aspen by this time of the year.  Nasir 12 might be the first outing of the year.  

 

We need some time away from here.  Too many projects demanding our time.  Garden is mostly in, the Deer Dog enclosure is done except for 3 short pieces of pipe welded in place, moved one Dodge truck out of the shop today (225 with a holed piston) and put the 318 powered one in to see if it is just the ignition module bad, 5 acres of grass standing in water to be cut, ceiling fan to mount, and so on.  Wasted most of today with MD visits.  Stupid professionals say "You need to slow down."  Offered both of them to come help and got no positive results.

Actually got the Aspen out of the hangar yesterday and set it up.  Checking what we need to do before we pull it to NASR 12.  Basically, load the A/C and sheets and pillows and small items.  Pulling it behind the Fiat requires less care in loading tongue weight.  We had a 32 ah sealed lead acid battery mounted behind the license plate on the inside for the first year.  It was for powering the C-PAP machines at night when we made our western trip.  It was amazing how much the balance changed when we removed it.  We figured out that we were not camping where we did not have electricity.  We almost exclusively stayed in KOA sites because the cost was usually the same or less than most parks and the KOA sites had all of the amenities such as WiFi, showers, washers and nice spots (well except at Hardin, MT. KOA)

 

We had hopes of sneaking a local area camping this coming weekend.  Guess what? Rain forecasted from Wednesday till Sunday with strong thunderstorms on Saturday.  The sad thing is they have been very accurate.

Stop planning.  Do a spur of the moment.  Your luck sound a lot like me & my scope.  When ever there is an Astronomical event, it's cloudy. I don't even try to plan for them anymore.

We are headed to NASR 12 early Wednesday morning.  working down the list of things that need to be done.  Home Health person demanded Tuesday so we leave Wednesday.  

 

Big thing was mowing 4 acres of wet grass (not the smoking kind)  The mower left a wake of water in much of the places.

 

Looking forward to seeing new friends and previous acquaintances (notice I did not use OLD)
