Spent yesterday morning loading in the 2" of snow that fell before I could escape south to Confluence S.P. in WEN for the weekend. Sally drove up from Clarkston where she claims to help build aluminum water cars, otherwise known as boats. I guess she does since I've seen them all over including a lodge we came across north of Ketchikan, AK last summer that has over 20 Thunder Jet Boats in their fleet to take guests out fishing.  


We have met up with the Bain's for a weekend of Geocaching around the area.  GC is not my cup of tea but they seem to enjoy it so they do it.  Had a great dinner around a ​Fabulous Campfire last night as Rich didn't arrive from Spokane till after dark due to that work thing he tinkers at 5 days a week.  IMHO it gets in the way of camping, but he does okay and gets out a few weekends a year.  We all turned in for the night and the forecasted rain for Friday night arrived and helped put us to sleep.  Rain had let up by the crack of dawn when the GC 3 some was up EARLY to depart for the starting gun of the Caching event here.  I went back to sleep and slept in.   It was a nice treat.  I always sleep well in the camper in a quiet campground.


Only down side of last nights rain is it freshened up all the goose poop which is everywhere in and around the sites.  The state parks needs to stop feeding them laxative.  Will have to shampoo the camper carpets when I get home.   Feels like I'm living on a farm and have been out mucking stalls.


Well, the sun is finally out so it's time to get out and start working on my 2018 farmers tan.


Confluence S.P. opened up the loop of sites we are in down by the Columbia River for this weekend since the regular winter loop was full early on.  There are a few back in sites open but overall I think camping season has kicked off for 2018.  No site water yet but we arrived with a full tank so it's all GOOD.

Nice place. That's why I have vinyl floors and carpet runners that get tossed and replaced with a new color theme every year.

Take care, say hi to Rich and Joanne. Must mean a trip report is on the way from them.

 It was indeed a fun weekend. Only around 200 fellow geocachers or so invaded the area for the all day long event


 The apple, bacon pizza on Saturday night was awesome.


 Great to see you once again. Look forward to next month.


 Of course I will have a trip report posted soon as well.

love everyday like you won the lotto.
