Now that Julie is here we have an event planner to help us keep our lives on the straight and narrow. Today her friend Ryan is going to fly into Vegas and join us for a few days so she spent a few minutes getting us prepared for when they return from picking him up.
Susan and I have been talking about the fact that there are places we question going with the Ponderosa. One of the options we talked about was having a 4 x4 truck with a camper on the back to enable us to get into some rugged spots to camp. Well on my walk this morning I saw just the set up we were talking about. It even has a quad mounted up on the back of the motorhome.
Yesterday I received my new 45 gallon bladder from Camping World so Harold and I decided to try it out. I spread it out in the back of the Jeep and it looks like it will fit quite nicely.
We filled it up from the washroom at the old boat launch and it only took about 5 minutes to do.
When we got back Harold hooked up his spare pump and filled his water tank. This will be a handy item to have around for those times when you don't want to move the rig to get more water.
By the time we were done with the water it was time for afternoon Happy Hour again. We all took some time to get to know Ryan and we were all on our best behavior. (well for a few minutes at least).
Ed and Lessie bought an Indian Chief for one of their friends and have been carrying it around for a couple months and taking pictures of all the places it has been. Ed decided to bring him out for a picture at Lake Mead.
As the sun went down we decided to have an international ladder challenge. The USA was represented by Ed and Lessie and Canada was represented by Ryan and Julie. In true Canadian fashion there was no winner. Just a tie.
After the game we had a nice fire and roasted some wieners and some smores. The neighbors came over again and we sat and looked at all the constellations and tried to name them. It was a gorgeous night with absolutely no wind.
This was the view from our window tonight.
