Thunderstorms and Campgrounds . . .

Got up this morning, starting with coffee that segued into a long afternoon of bad weather, thunderstorms, and no satellite reception.

But before it all hit, I drove over to the Post Office in Blanford to pick up my General Delivery mail, and then stopped back by the park office to get the new gate code.

Getting back to the rig, I got back on getting my computer desk unbolted from the floor so I can get the old carpet out from underneath it.

It actually took a couple of hours to get it completely loose and pulled to the side. I couldn’t pull it all the way from the wall because it has power cables coming into it from the floor and from the wall, but I did get all the carpet and pad out of the way.

Since it’s now setting a little lower without the carpet, I’ll have to shim it a bit so that all the screw holes line up when I fasten it back down.

But that’s for tomorrow.

On another note, I did come across this website at It lists over 10,000 public campgrounds in all 50 states plus the Canadian Provinces.

Here’s the description from the site.

This site provides what we believe to be the most complete and geographically accurate US & Canada public campground locator in existence. Includes all National Park, National Forest, State Park and Provincial campgrounds, all BLM, TVA and Army engineers campgrounds, all regional, county, city and utility-owned campgrounds. We include only public car-camping campgrounds with 5 or more campsites and tables and toilets (not backpack-in,  boat-in, horse camps, dispersed or group camps).   We do not include privately owned campgrounds.

Sounds like another great resource.

After dinner, Jan and I watch some more stuff from the DVR, catching up on some shows we’d missed.

All in all, another very nice day.


Thought for the Day:

In 1939, ten years after the crash on Wall Street, the Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau, Jr., told the House Way and Means Committee:

"We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong … somebody else can have my job. I want to see people get enough to eat. WE HAVE NEVER MADE GOOD ON OUR PROMISES … I say after eight years of this administration WE HAVE JUST AS MUCH UNEMPLOYMENT as when we started … AND AN ENORMOUS DEBT TO BOOT!"
