I went to town this morning, picked up a few things at Walmart and filled up the truck with fuel. The rest of the day was just fooling around getting the Arctic Fox ready to roll South tomorrow morning.
My plans are to camp at Sumner Lake state Park tomorrow night. I've never been there before but I read on the Internet that they shut down a lot of the park on October 1 for the winter season and only keep certain parts open. so it will be interesting to see what's going on there in terms of hookups sites and Boondocking sites. I've learned that at certain times of the year a Boondocking site right next to a lake might look like a great thing, but I quickly found out that if you're too close to the water your besieged by bugs of all descriptions. But if you move 100 feet away from the water everything is fine.
It's a beautiful day to be getting ready to leave because it's a bright sunny day and 75° outside. It's been nice and peaceful here at Storrie Lake state Park and I could stay longer if I wanted to. Like most state parks there's a two-week limit on how long you can stay and I've only been here about a week, but I've got some itchy wheels that need to get rolling.
I've been taking some videos of Storrie Lake state Park and will try to put them together into a movie whenever I get a chance.
I met the head ranger the first day I got here when he was picking up the self-pay envelopes from the iron Ranger and he seemed to be a very nice guy. he was wearing a state Park uniform and a gun. I talked to him for a while about what he does around here and he said "a little of everything". A couple days later I saw him again with a leaf blower blowing the leaves out of the campsites. I saw him again this morning with a backhoe patching some potholes in the campground Road. I guess he was right... he really does a little of everything.
