A bit about camping trip, kind of busy week, some other stuff.

     If you read my last post you knew that I was planning for a camping/canoe trip to the mountains with my brother and his Moo-Moo. I wont elaborate too much, but JUGM did a post and summarized the trip. Yes we left a day early, but I look at it in two different windows, first I left for the drunks safety, not mine. If things escalated, it would not have been good, I do travel armed, had three firearms with me. Second, figure an incident with an out-of-state family in a small NC/VA town or outskirt area with locals in the other party involved, who do you think would have won, sure as hell not the out-of-state family. Yes, the weather sucked but maybe it was a good thing to leave.

    This week has been crappy, rained on and off since sunday, so to say, I haven't done much this week in work. It's just too wet. 1200 and 800 lb mowers don't operate too well on saturated grass. I did however manage to change the fuel-pump out on JUGM's Cherokee. Issue wasnt the fuel pump but the pressure regulator, but all these components are in a fuel tank module so you might as well change everything out while you got the tank down. I figure after 211,000 miles something back there was about to go. I had a chance to also change out intake manifold gaskets on my big mower, since our government insists that we put ethanol in our gas to make a cleaner world.

    This weather also has made me feel "Blah". What is it with bad weather that just makes you "Blah" I sure wish the sun would come back and beam a ray of sunshine down and cheer me up some. I have managed to find some pictures that gave me a few laughs, so I though I would share.

  1. Having experienced both disruptive/rowdy fellow campers, and monsoon rains on a float trip, I agree y'all made the best possible choice by leaving early. Well done!

    Funny pictures, too.

  3. Look at all the rain this way when the sun does come out the grass will grow like crazy, and you will be busier then P.P. being chased by his bees. big grin

    1. Actually, grass is slowing it's growth, which I'm fine with since our spring started a month and a half early, but I have other things to do, and one is not being chased by bees.

  4. It was a wet weekend, sounds like you were camping in a redneck ghetto.

    1. It was actually a nice place, but the crowd was not what I desired. If I had my travel trailer and a/c going, i wouldn't have heard a thing and slept like a baby.

  5. I read your wife's blog and I was sorry you had that trouble up at the camp grounds. It does happen. Here where we are, when I worked at the park we'd get 30 plus Hispanics or Indians/Pakistanis late at night in the camp ground, raising hell, and the Ranger would have to go out and ask them nicely to keep it down after 2200. If they didn't, the Park Ranger would make them leave. Maybe next time you could try a state park and at least that issue shouldn't come up.

    I liked all those pictures on this posting, I was feeling a big used up and they gave me a good laugh.

    1. Harry, it was disappointing to drive that far to have a good time to be ruined by irresponsible drunks. Glad you got a laugh from the pictures. Hope other do as well.

  7. Pictures are hilarious ! I just wish for a week where the boys can make baseball practice... : )

    I said everything happens for a reason. I am glad we left early..did not want to deal with colds, or fevers from being in a canoe during a monsoon.
