That goes without saying...

Still at Mendenhall... Sipping a morning Machiato... Our machine is Swiss...

BTW owning an Airstream automatically makes one a glamper... Some of us just have more glam.

We had fun canoeing, gathering drift wood for fires for outdoor grilling, and taking our chairs to the water of an evening to see the waterfowl (pelicans, loons.) There were some wild miniature orchids in bloom, and beautiful moss covered the entire understory in the woods.

Our twin batteries lasted 3 nights with sparing use, with power to spare.

We brought good, fresh food to eat and decent wine to drink, and lived outside as much as we could. We discussed big topics. We stopped at the hot springs on our way home, ferry-landing pub for lunch, and enjoyed one of North America's best free ferry rides (Ainsworth and Kootenay L, respectively.)

Maybe we lost some righteousness points from our old days of rocks-in-your-back camping. Maybe we were morally superior when we slept in wet tents in bear country. But camping with comfort and a wee bit of style doesn't have to mean vulgar or urban, compared to the general citified state of RVing today.
Now that sounds like a perfect weekend!

Did you ferry in? Or do you live there?

Glamping, Camping, what ever you want to call it. If I am enjoying it and relaxing I don't care what name it has.

This weekend at the Bash 4 will definitely be glamping.

Daily happy hours, fine Hors d'oeuvres, and adult beverages -- not really roughing it.

If I use fabric placemats and real napkins (with napkin rings), does that qualify as glamping?

Kim met me in the driveway with a cold beer when I got home today in our 90 degree weather to tell me the Overlander's Bay Breeze A/C had shut off a half-hour earlier while she & the Boyz were stocking it with food & clothes for this weekend's trip.

The A/C's breaker was found to be tripped. After resetting it, cool returned to the Overlander. But 20 minutes later, the A/C stopped again.

For various reasons, I suspect the breaker is going bad as opposed to a problem with the Bay Breeze. So, the breaker box was re-wired to swap the A/C's wire to a different breaker. Hanging my ammeter on the circuit, the A/C was found to be pulling ~12 amps; Armstrong's specs specify a current draw of 11.7 amps. Close enough. Several hours later, the Airstream was still cool inside.

The problem now is that the bad breaker is now associated with the outlet used to power the electric skillet used to cook our breakfast hashbrowns. We may have to give up "glam-camping" breakfast on the trip since the bad breaker was made by a now defunct company. No worries, though - our outdoor, 14-inch, cast-iron skillet & burner had already been lined up to go with us for a chicken-rollup meal.

The plan is still a GO for this weekend's trip.

I may only have the plywood floor down and the bulkheads are still out - but I purchased the parrot (for the wall) and bath mat for the bathroom months ago.
