PLAN “C” ?

PLAN “C”?  MAYBE I SHOULD START AT THE BEGINNING WITH PLAN”A”.  SINCE THE YEAR 2000 WE SPENT SEVERAL SUMMERS ENJOYING PLAN “A”, WHERE WE FIRST TOOK OUR CAMPER BACK TO WISCONSIN AND THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER TO DEAL BLACKJACK AT THE MISS MARQUETTE RIVERBOAT CASINO IN MARQUETTE, IOWA.

AFTER THAT, WE SPENT A HALF A DOZEN SUMMERS AT BEAUTIFUL LAKE TAHOE, SLAP’IN JACKS AT HARVEY’S CASINO. MAN-O-MAN THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLE DAYS!!!

WHEN THINGS WENT TO HELL IN TAHOE DUE TO INDIAN CASINO COMPETION AND THE SHITTY ECONOMY, WE REVERTED TO PLAN “B” AND STAYING IN THE MOHAVE VALLEY.

PLAN “B” WAS EXCITING AND OUR SUMMER CAMP AT WATERFALL MOUNTAIN WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF OUR FAVORITES.  IT WAS A TRUE TESTING GOUND OF BOONDOCKING AND LIVING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE WITH NO NEIGHBORS.  WE BOTH LOVED IT.

WE LEARNED TODAY THAT THE HOME OWNERS AT WATERFALL MOUNTAIN ARE STAYING FOR THE SUMMER TO COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION ON THIER NEW HOME, AND OUR SUMMER CAMPSITE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO US.

ON TO PLAN “C” ……..

AS WE THOUGHT ABOUT PLAN “C” WE BOTH AGREED THAT PLAN “A’S” AND PLAN “B’S” ARE A LOT MORE FUN.

BUT PUTTING THE “HAPPY” INTO HAPPY CAMPERS, WE’RE MOVING FORWARD. SINCE THE CAMPER NEEDS NEW TIRES THIS SUMMER ANYWAY, INSTEAD WE’VE DECIDE TO JACK THE TRAILER UP AND LEAVE IT PARKED PERMANTENTLY.

WE SPENT THE AFTERNOON PLANNING THE ADDITION OF A PERMANENT ENCLOSED AWNING OR PORCH ABOUT 8 FOOT WIDE BY 30 FOOT LONG. OF COURSE AN OUTDOOR SUMMER KITCHEN, AND PUZZLE AREA WILL BE INCLUDED.

STAY TUNED FOR PORCH CONSTUCTION, PAVERS, SKIRTING, OUTDOOR KITCHEN, AND “SUNNY & 120” DAYS TO FOLLOW.

Figure the cost of setting up the trailer as a permanent fixture and it would probably add up to five or six sets of tires. You will also start to get bored looking at the same old ,same old all the time.
