I'm trying to make up my mind if I want to try and post anything on my blog today because today has been a really lazy day, I haven't done anything useful, or fun, just mostly sitting around trying to stay cool in 90° heat. Now is not 90° all day of course it's only hot from about lunch time till 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and by dark it's actually kind of chilly. So the heat doesn't give me an excuse for not doing anything all day, just between lunch and 4 o'clock, but I think I'll use it as an excuse for not doing anything all day.
I did do a little work on my laptop, one of the internal hard drives was starting to fill up, mostly with pictures, so I transferred a lot of them over to an external hard drive. I worked up a sweat doing that so I had to stop and rest for a while.
After that I spent some time thinking about doing something with videos, I kind of like doing videos but they always look so bad when I'm finished it takes the fun out of it. But I was thinking of doing something like "a day in the life of" kind of video, showing the area where I'm boondocked, and what the nearby town looks like, and what I do during the day. But then I thought that sounds pretty boring, who in the world would want to sit through that? I mean I'm living it and it sounds boring to me. So I don't know, maybe I can think of something to do with video but it seems that video requires something exciting happening and exciting is not a word I would use to describe my life.
I found out through trial and error that I can get a little bit of Internet signal on my Verizon phone if the phone is outside the Arctic Fox. It's not a very strong Internet signal but I can at least post things on my blog without going into Wickenburg. I guess I'm right in a fringe area where the aluminum frame and fiberglass walls of the Arctic Fox can block out the signal. But I have found that if I open the door and close the screen door I can hang my phone on the screen door and pick up some Internet so the phone doesn't actually have to be outside. I think I will look into getting some kind of cell phone signal booster with an outside antenna I think that will solve my problem.
I'm still thinking about moving to a cooler area since it's getting so warm now but I kind of hate to leave where I'm at because I'm slipping under the radar at the moment. Box Wash is a 14 day free BLM dispersed camping area, but right now because of the Maricopa County Park deal it appears that nobody is in charge. I haven't seen a ranger, and there's no camp host so no one knows when somebody boondocks here and when they leave so I guess a person could boondock here until somebody runs them off. So I hate to leave a place like this but sooner or later the heat will win out.
Well I've given it some thought and there's just not enough going on for me to post on my blog today. Maybe something interesting will happen tomorrow.
