I've been back from the Tincup camping trip for about a week and believe it or not I'm still in the process of cleaning out my truck. This tells me three things, I take a lot of stuff with me when I go camping, I'm lazy, and I procrastinate.
But today I had to hit it hard and finish getting stuff out of the truck because at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning I'm supposed to be at Walmart getting an oil change. Now going to Walmart at 7 AM on the fourth of July holiday is either a brilliant tactical move or the stupidest thing I ever did, and I won't know which until I get there. My theory is everyone will be in the mountains celebrating and I will be the only one getting an oil change so I can be in and out of there in a flash. But there is the remote chance that the 152 Denver residents that aren't in the mountains could have the same idea and I will have to come back another day. Oh! And yes they will be open and changing oil at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning.
My families having a barbecue tomorrow so all I will have to do is walk 50 feet to the patio and claim my share of whatever's cooking on the grill without exposing myself to any dangerous traffic or noisy annoying people that will be infesting every square inch of the high country tomorrow. Sounds like the perfect Fourth of July to me.
