It was hot here today. Really hot. I dragged. The dust blew. "Golden" is here.
We are all set to pull out in the morning and head North. It is going to be a Killer Heat weekend. "They" are saying 90s-100s. But we have our reservations, and our plans, so off we'll go. It is a really nice campground but is in the foothills, and can get hot. Really hot.
One of the fellas going on the trip is a pilot. He called to let me know he had just flown over a wildfire in the area we plan to camp in. After a bunch of 'go no where' phone calls I reached a real live person (fireman) who assured me the blaze is well away from the campgrounds. He gave me a number to call that updates on wildfires and the recording sounded confident the fire was 50% contained and no evacuations or threats to residential areas.
We deposited our dog with a couple of Jerry's friends down in the city. I already miss the old cur. They seem thrilled to be dog sitting him. They lost their dog C.C. last summer. We had a very touching euthanasia at home for her when her cancer became uncomfortable. It teared T. up a bit to have Cort running around playing in their yard tonight. Cort will have a good vacation with them. We couldn't bring him along on this trip. Dogs are restricted to being on leash at all times and cannot be left behind in camp.
I plan to bring along my camera and lap top so you can all be on a 'virtual horse camp trip'. I warn you though, things get hot, sweaty, and dirty. Have I mentioned 'really hot'?
And just for David, a big YEEHAW!
Good night all.
