Well, we’re now literally a couple of hours away from another camping adventure. We actually won’t get to our first “base camp” until Monday night since we are stopping to visit some friends and my mom along the way. I figured I would wait until Monday night to set up shop in an effort to avoid all the holiday crazies who have already taken over all of the campgrounds from the west to east coast. I love camping but I don’t enjoy hang in out with the week-end warrior types who make their annual pilgrimage on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day. I prefer my peace and quiet and I figure they will be heading home just about the time I arrive on late Monday afternoon. If this sounds a bit snobbish, it is…..

We will be gone for three weeks and will spend all our time in Redwood National Park and the Oregon Coast. I wanted to go to the mountains this vacation but I was voted out by the rest of the expedition team which includes Wesley, Paul, and Lynn. I try to run a democracy around here which means one has to live with the consequences of majority rule. No sour grapes on my part though because I figure I’ll go to the mountains by myself when I get back. Besides, I hate the heat and the northern California, Oregon Coast jaunt will guarantee that I will not see any temperatures above 75 for the next twenty one days which is fine with me. I’ll be taking my camera and will probably come back with at least 3 to 4 hundred pictures. Ah….the beauty of digital….and memory cards…..Anyway…..don’t have anything else to say except that I hope the rest of you folks out there can keep cool and safe…..
