As previously mentioned, I went to Logan to buy about 5 things, get a hair cut and look around. I found that Logan is larger than I had originally thought. It is not a college town after all, rather a city with a college. Disappointing.
I left about $360 at Walmart, including the original 5 food items. I found a nifty (well, I will see first time I try it) outside table for cooking outside when boondocking without picnic tables. I recently realized one drawback about boondocking – no facilities means no picnic tables.
I got an air matress for the bed. The 6′-0″ sofa, though helping my back problems, is becoming an annoyance to my 6′-1″ body. If the air mattress does not help the issue I will return it to another Walmart down the road. The foam matress is currently occupying about 77% of my useable space, standing edgewise in the ‘aisle’.
It was too hot to look around town as planned, so I drove back up the mountain after Walmart had it’s way with me.
I plan to depart Tue for Targhee National Forest Palisades Reservoir, Calamity Campground, if I can get in. Elevation is not very high, might be warm there. Go and see, I guess. If I feel something else pulling at me I may end up elsewhere.
I am still boondocking in the large pullout used for hiking, biking, motorbiking, ATVing, snomobiling and horsebacking. I have seen it all, except snomobile. If I were younger this would be the perfect spot! I have been the only RV here until last night when a 5er pulled in at 10:30, started leveling, unhooking, running the genset, but they were as quiet as possible, and the genset was rather quiet. Boy, does solar make one cynical! I still haven’t used the genset.
Beaver Mtn is still treating me well. I think I am bad for business. I have seen more than a few RVs circle here and leave. I think they see me and think this is the campground that is referenced on the sign on the main road. The CG is mile further, and is full-hookup for $19. I was up there this morn, and it had only one occupant beside Steve the Host. I will dump there before I leave ($4).
There was shooting near here yesterday afternoon. I was just mildly interested as I figured it was target practice… until I heard a bullet zing nearby. I left in Jeep for the CG to see if Steve the Host knew anything about it. He did not.
When the shooting stopped I came back and looked down the road, seeing the guy over a small hill from me. He was finished and leaving. Thing is that he was shooting near the hill top and apparently a bullet barely went over it, I was far enough away that the bullets could be dropping all around me. Turkey.
