I arrived on Thursday afternoon in sweltering heat and needed to run the AC all night. By Sunday night, I had to run the furnace a little! Friday morning I met and had a great visit with a woman next to me. She had lost her husband to ALS about a year before Butch died and decided this past winter to begin camping again, starting with a tent. She plans to work toward a small trailer if she continues.
Saturday, Pat and I were sitting outside when another woman pulled over in a Minnie Winnie and asked for help. She had bought this RV three weeks earlier and this was her first trip. She thought she had filled the fresh water tank but they were already out of water. Her husband had suffered a stroke several years ago and was unable to help her. I only saw one water inlet so thought she was doing it right. But when we talked to her later, we found out she had made several trips back to the water station before someone showed her that the actual fill was inside a locked compartment. Through all this, she kept the most amazing attitude. It must have been newbie weekend, because on a trip to the dumpster, Pat ran into a couple of guys trying to figure out how to dump their tanks.
Despite all, it was a wonderful weekend. For the most part, the weather cooperated and it was so great to see them all. We had a lovely evening for an outdoor meal on Saturday and Elliot's diploma was signed.
