While the camper does have a fridge and stove and even a terr-let...they cook outside on the grill, use a cooler and have a portapotty. nuff said.
It really is a nice area, especially if you like doing nothing...
Chelsie and I had already been laying in the sun for several hours...
I was completely unable to get out of this chair without help
plus it whacked me in the head when I sat in it...
I eventually moved to the covered area to observe the baby, while watching, what must be their usual routine while "over on the creek". The baby was good. She did what newborns do. They had a nice covered area and a fan blowing on her and everyone was having a very nice time...
There were five barking dogs...the three small black dogs, Bubba, Maddy Girl and Baby
Girl...the blond German shepherd named Boscoe and now added to the mix, a husky named Dakota. Boscoe almost knocked me down with the rope to which he was tied, as he bolted when Dakota first showed up. Bruised leg, first injury.
Folks fished and threw back their catches and fished some more. I took pictures of the baby and sang to the Kid Rock music that we had blaring at top volume.
Chelsie put Dakota on a lead and tried to introduce him to the water, but he wasn't having it...
Dakota and Chelsie
I finally got someone to come get me up and help me out into the creek and back to the bank. Enough creek for me.
Well, of course now I have to pee. I made it to the portapotty and got my wet spandex short down far enough to do my thang, and of course, I could hardly get them back up. It was a bit frustrating, but made for laughter back down at the fire pit.
Hot dogs were cooked and since I had eaten fried chicken a while before I chose not to eat at hot dog at that time. After what I certainly thought was a long time, I went to the grill to pick up what I was sure would be a cool hot dog. It was not. It was blazing hot and it burned the finger and thumb on my right hand, so instead of dropping it...I transferred it to my left hand and burned finger and thumb of that hand. By this time, I cut myself off from any more alcohol. Damn hot dog was too burned to eat after all.
Finally, we had real food. Chicken cooked on the grill along with potatoes. We only had one dull knife so I sliced using a tiny knife on a Leatherman type tool. Oh for pity's sake. Chelsie wrapped the potatoes in foil and put them in the campfire. Same with a foil pack of onions. They were done after about 20 minutes and the onions would have been great if one of the dudes hadn't torn the foil digging them out of the fire, causing him to burn his hand and lose most of the onions. 2nd burn of the day.
We went inside the trailer to make our plates,sharing space with the little black dogs, finally got our food and went back outside. Gradually after eating, people began to leave. All the families with kids packed up and went on to other things. Derrik and Dakota took off and the host, apparently had to hit the bed in the trailer. I was not the only one that had more than one beer.
Chelsie and Jordan cleaned up, making it easier for them to leave early in the morning, and me, I decided that I would be miserable trying to get any sleep there. So I came home.
All in all, it was a very interesting day. I'm just not very outdoorsy, but I think I had fun. I might do it again. Maybe.
So that is my adventure from over on the creek. Hope you enjoyed hearing about it. Next time something fun happens, I'll tell you all about it. Until then, stay cool and let those you care about know just how much you do care.
