I guess I would do the same, but I have yet to see another AS when boon docking. I see them in commercial campgrounds occasionally, but I don't go there. I tell my friends if they ever see my rig in a commercial campground, please call the police because it's been stolen.

I take my guitar along and practice. It is the only time it comes out of it's case, so I play very softly. Somehow my fingers actual start to remember the notes, sort of like typing. I also take along water color pencils, watercolor paints, sketch pads, and learn how to draw books. I find a beautiful spot and try to capture it on paper.On a rainy day, If there is a unique vintage trailer set up in view of my campsite, I have also been known to make a watercolor of it and give it to the folks.

During the day, if I'm not in my kayak, I'm exploring with my camera. At night I try to turn as much wood as I can into smoke. Camping without a campfire is like a meal without food.

Dougz,

That's a very good analogy. I agree.

Oh - oh -- I want to camp near you! But what defines "unique set up"? I think I can do unique - but it probably isn't always viewed as attractive.

But really, what a wonderful gift. Wish I was that creative and that thoughtful. I usually just occupy my hands with a beverage.

Why would we listen to an entertainment suggestion form someone named "funkill"?

She set up the first? Only? Space shuttle launch rally. She's my hero. Pat

Ok, my curiosity finally has gotten to me—"funkill" is kinda strange for a name. Laura, what is it about?

And while we are at it—Pill? The names rhyme too—what's going on?

Lots to choose from

Besides the already mentioned things we have spent 2 winter seasons volunteering in Everglades Nat Park, two other years we attended Archaeology field schools in Tn. State and National parks could always use help. We've been retired 11 years now and our bucket list keeps getting longer instead of shorter as we learn about more opportunities to involve ourselves in.

Gene,
I've had the unique, and distinct, pleasure of sharing an adult beverage with both you and Laura. She is certainly not a "fun" killer, but a very nice young lady who was brave enough to tow her "olive" to Canopener by herself this past January. I think she may have been a bit surprised at how hard us "old" folks partied, but will probably be returning next year for a repeat birthday greeting.

Awe thanks Chief. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you and party with all of you. I fell asleep on my couch 2 of the nights at Topsail - never made it to the bed. Course, my dog already had it taken...

Thanks Pat --- so, there hasn't been much interest in a repeat rally. I was starting to take it personally so I appreciate your complement. Maybe I'll try again for the FINAL Shuttle Launch in June.

Funkill --- nickname from work. Printer spits out documents with last name followed by first inititial & middle initial = FUNKLL. Some sick fool thougth Funkill was funnier. It stuck.

If I am still in FL, I'll be back for my B-day. And more prepared - how was I to know about those early morning toasts with Joe & Annette? Hope my rear end is still attached. But if it's not, it will only give us all something else to laugh at! Not that laughs are in short avail.....

Laura

Oh - so I can add to the original question.... I have found a love for games! Dang, never knew card & board games could be so fun. I am addicted to Rumycube (sp ?), Taboo and Flash Scrabble (though it makes up words).

Boondocking itself will keep you occupied. I play and keep a hand full of time passing 'eye to hand' types of games in the laptop The latest one being 'CHICKEN INVADERS, ULTIMATE OMLET (sp)'. House keeping, organizing, and throwing out un needed weight and material 'crap' that builds up almost by itself. Staying tuned in to earth quakes and where the sun is located in the pm's. And watching for the the best places to live and work. And watching the weather.Airstreams hold up to so many of the elements and its fun to continue fortifying the house against the weather for future use.
