Well Memorial Day came and went pretty peacefully. there was a lot of people in Haggard's RV Park and the swimming pool got an amazing amount of use considering how the weather was only warm and kind of cloudy. Everyone was well behaved, there was no loud music, or drunken behavior that often shows up when some people go camping during the holidays. I don't think there's too much of that kind of behavior at nice RV parks because the owners won't tolerate it. But my experience has been that at state parks and other government run parks there's more of a tendency for campers to act like fools on holidays and ruin the experience for folks that don't want to see how drunk and stupid they can get.
I'm not exactly sure why this is but one popular opinion is that holidays brings out people that are more interested in partying than in camping, after all it's a holiday and holidays call for parties.
but I do know this for sure. I stay far away from public camping areas during the three big summer holidays and either boondock far away from people or go to a private RV Park like I'm at now.
I went to Denver Sunday and picked up my wife's cat. The cat is going to be spending a couple of weeks with me while my wife is out of town. I like cats but this cat has never been one of my favorites. The cat is noisy, not all that friendly, and seems like the kind of cat that one day will kill you while you sleep.
Before we sold the house this cat was an outdoor cat. she would stay outside all night and come inside in the morning to eat and sleep. In the forest and around our house I have seen, Mountain Lions, Bears, Bobcats, Raccoons, packs of Coyotes, foxes, Hawks, Eagles, and of course deer and elk. And this cat shared the night with all of those critters and must've held her own because she's still alive. I believe that would indicate that she's a pretty tough cat.
But now the cat lives in a condo and never gets to go outside so she's pretty bored. Here in the Arctic Fox she sleeps a lot, and stares out the window, probably looking for something or somebody to kill.
