A hot lazy day today. It got into the high 80s today and since I haven't been around much heat lately, and I have no air conditioning, it's been pretty warm in the Arctic Fox. Sitting outside at the shaded picnic table is perfectly comfortable but I'm not much for outdoor sitting.
The main problem is I went into town about lunch time and left the Arctic Fox closed up. And when I got back at about 2 o'clock the heat had already built up inside the trailer so it's probably not going to cool off in here until evening.
Cooling-off the Arctic Fox has been made more difficult because my living room Fantastic Vent Fan stopped working a couple of days ago. The fan is one of those remote-control fans because it's so high in the ceiling that I can't reach it without standing on a chair. The remote control will open and close the vent cover but the fan won't turn on. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the remote controller or a problem with the fan itself but I've done everything I can do from down here in the living room so now I need to get up on the roof and attack it from above.
I'm now safely ensconced back at the San Pedro boondocking area Lake Amistad NRA.
And now that I'm here what am I going to do? That's a good question and at the moment I don't rightly know. Having been here a month already I've done a lot of the things that there is to do here, and I've taken pictures of just about everything that moves, so I guess I'm going to have to get inventive. Fortunately I have a few left over pictures from Seminole Canyon that I'm going to use and after that I'll probably have to follow the old fat man around and take pictures of him taking pictures.
I might show some more paintings by the famous French minimalist painter La Boone, and since the ancient Indian God that I met at Seminole Canyon is still with me in spirit I guess I'll show some more pictures of him every once in a while.
Another thing I'm thinking of doing is making a video of how to get to the San Pedro boondocking area, I haven't made a video for a long time and maybe a video of how to get here would put me back in a movie mood again.
But whatever I do I'll be enjoying myself. Maybe not the jumping around yelling YEE HAWWW ! kind of enjoyment, but a quiet, peaceful, contented, all is right with the world, kind of enjoyment.
I spent some time today getting ready to leave tomorrow, It doesn't actually take all day to get ready to leave I just stretch it out as much as possible with lots of coffee breaks.
I decided to go back to the San Pedro boondocking area near Del Rio and kill some time there figuring out what I would like to do next. Going to Big Bend and being there during the busiest of their busy seasons didn't seem like something that interested me right now. And San Pedro is a very inexpensive place to stay if I don't spend too much money shopping and eating in Del Rio. Plus I've got a couple of projects I would like to do and I find it very handy to be close to a Home Depot when I start "fixing" things
The transcontinental railroad grade where it runs through Seminole Canyon state Park
Original railroad culvert made of stone.
Original bread oven built for the railroad workers it's only a few feet from the old railroad grade
