Don't be a procrastinator like me, click the pics right now.
An old building in Fairplay.
The weather here in Denver has gotten a lot easier to deal with. Highs in the high 80s and lows in the low 60s makes most of the day a lot more comfortable than it was a week or so ago.
I'm looking forward to August for several reasons. First of all, it actually cools off a little bit in August. I know August is the worst in most places, but around here, July is usually our hottest month. But the most important thing is in August the tourists will start leaving town. The roads will become navigable again. The parks won't be as crowded, and the little mountain towns will become a pleasure to visit instead of a challenge.
As usual, I don't know what I'm going to do this winter. This will be my sixth year of full-timing, and I never know what I'm going to do until I do it. But this year its worse than usual because not only don't know what I'm going to do, or when I'm going to do it, this time I don't even know what I CAN do thanks to the Bat flu.
I'm considering staying here for the holidays, but dealing with the cold and snow and the very real chances of my pipes freezing have me worried. Depending on the Bat flu situation, the holidays are a time when families are living closer together. There's a lot of shopping going on with crowds of people everywhere. The anti-symptomatic people running around that aren't sick, but they can make you sick has me more than a little concerned.
On the other hand, depending on what's going on with the Bat flu, will other states even let me in without a hassle? Will the state parks in New Mexico still be closed to camping? Will the events that I like to go to, such as the rodeo at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Arizona, be canceled? Will boondocking be limited on BLM land? Will there be even more RVs in the Southwest than usual, not only trying to get away from the wintertime Bat flu but escaping their cities that are in turmoil?
There are many unknowns this year, so figuring out what to do is not going to be easy. I've just spent the last five years making my full-timing lifestyle as easy and stress-free as possible, and now my life is getting as complicated and as stressful as my normal life.... Bummer!
Weird alien plant I found near my campsite. It's like no flower I've ever seen before, could it be that it's not a flower but something more malevolent?
A close-up of this "flower" reveals it's true sinister alien nature. It appears to be some sort of "nest" full of alien eggs destined to one day hatch into strange creatures that will become politicians and rule over the earth. Who knows maybe their already here.
As if that "flower" wasn't proof enough, further down the road I found this. Which is obviously a Martian outpost where the aliens that spread those infernal seeds live and work. The flying saucer launch ramp is clearly visible on the building that has the metal radiation shielding on it. You have to admit no human, or at least no sober human could build a building so technically advanced and yet look like it was built by a demented psychotic drunken Crack head. Were all DOOMED!
Old hotel in Fairplay. This might be where the aliens stay when visiting Earth. Notice the large rooftop space antenna disguised as a hotel sign. Why would an ancient hotel in a tiny little mountain town need an antenna capable of reaching the other side of the galaxy. Unless of course that's where their RESERVATIONS are coming from!!!
