About 50 feet in front of my campsite there's a huge grassy field used for Hunter Jumper horse competitions and Polo contests. All the green grass is irrigated and as the sun was going down yesterday one section of the sprinkler system came on and all of this water was shooting into the air with the temperature still about 90° outside. I walked over to the field just as the sun was disappearing below the horizon and was amazed how cool it was, the sprinklers were working just like a swamp cooler and the water was evaporating so quickly it was actually chilly standing near that field.
I filled up one of my 10 gallon propane tanks at $2.65 a gallon here at the Fairgrounds yesterday. That tank had lasted 28 days of cooking, running the refrigerator, running the hot water heater and everything else that propane is used for in an RV except heating, because I don't think I had to turn on the heater in the last 28 days.
Long-range weather forecasts are showing that its going to be high 90s low 100s for at least the next 10 days and my guess is it's going to stay about the same or get hotter after that. Fortunately I'm parked under a shade tree which does help a lot. Normally because of my solar panels I avoid shade trees but with the Arctic Fox plugged in I don't have to worry about that, and I didn't have to turn on my air conditioner until after lunch today.
I have to have the thing running because of the heat but I find the noise it makes really annoying. When I'm boondocking the Arctic Fox is almost silent, my radiant heater doesn't make any sounds all, and the air conditioners not running so it's pretty much silent inside the Arctic Fox when I'm boondocking... And I like that, maybe that's why other people's generators bother me so much, I'm just used to the silence.
I got out my single burner electric hotplate yesterday and set it on the stove so now I can cook without using any propane. The water heater and refrigerator are also running on electricity so now I'm not using any propane at all. I've got one propane tank full, the other tank has two days of use on it, and I'm not using any propane at the moment so it should be quite a while before I have to worry about propane again.
The red sign over my truck says "fitness and nature trail" I thought that was very convenient to have a trail like that right next my campsite. I walked over there to absorb a little fitness and see some nature, and as I walked in the gate the very first sign says "watch for snakes". Now snakes don't bother me in the least but I got to wondering if the sign, fitness and nature trail, means ....... The nature you see will be rattlesnakes, and you will increase your fitness if you run back to your RV as fast as possible.
My campsite is right next to the outdoor stage where live events are held, too bad they're not having any because I would have a front row seat. Next to me are storage trailers for something or another probably something to do with the outdoor events.
I know it must be getting pretty hot here because this morning the campground hosts packed up their class A and left. Everything to do with the campground will now be handled by the fairground administrative office, and the fairground maintenance men. So now there are no RVers taking care of us RVers.
