Took Son #3 and his dog along to a local campground just about 45 min. away. It's a nice old fashioned place with deep sites and very old/tall trees in a canyon surrounded by grassy hills and rocks. I planned to cook our meals on the charcoal grill, eat at the picnic table, take the dog for interesting walks, and sit by a fire in the fire ring every night.
Well, good old Mother Nature had other plans. It was hot, hot, hot. Monday was 107, Tue. almost the same and we pulled out around 8:30 on Wed. and it was already 92! I cooked our hot dogs, hamburgs and pork chops on George, we ate inside with our plates on our laps (no dinette), only got in one walk and both agreed it wasn't worth it (the dog said "thank you, I'd rather sleep in front of the sofa in the A/C) and the fire level was red, so no fire. Too hot anyway. So, all in all, I spent $129 to sit in the RV and read for 3 days! But we enjoyed each other's company. Just a teensy bit crowded in a 26' RV with 2 adults, one 70 lb dog and a ticked of cat! Spike does NOT like to share - and definitely not share her salmon with a DOG! I had to put her food and water up on the bunk. But she's a very adaptable kitty and puts up with a lot.
At least we didn't see any rattlesnakes and we were deep in snake country. They aren't dumb - it was too hot! I did catch my breath a little when a Class C pulled in two sites down just at dusk and let the 2 kids clamor all over the rocks behind the campsites! Looked like perfect snake den territory to me, but all was well. The campground has signs posted all over to beware of snakes!
