Yesterday was one of those days where things just kept going wrong.
Curtis was up all night pacing and panting with anxiety and restlessness. It was raining, and his new music box wasn’t enough to calm him down.
We woke up tired from a bad nights sleep surrounded by red mud, which means muddy paws and tracking dirt inside.
After Curtie’s walk, we packed him up in the truck and went out for breakfast and grocery shopping.
On our way back, we were scouting a possible new campsite and ended up getting stuck in the turn-around. Four wheel drive wasn’t enough to get us out. Fortunately, when we put some lynx leveling blocks behind the wheels we were able to get enough traction to get out.
When we returned to our campsite, we were going to move into our friends spot that they had just vacated but we were too late. Some other RVers had already moved in on it.
We ended up moving down the road to what ended up being a great spot, but it wasn’t without more challenges.
Our electric hitch jack has been finicky for the past year or so, but would always work after some jiggling. Well of course yesterday it decided not to work at all and we couldn’t find the device the trailer comes with to manually raise it. Lucky for us, we had neighbors with a socket set and Brian was able to unhitch the trailer.
Meanwhile, a drawer inside came off a track and my eyeglasses glass popped out at the same time I got covered in grease from the drawer track.
Are any of you dreaming of life on the road still interested? Well, it was probably worth the effort. Check out the office view this week:
Dinner Last Night:
Crispy Orange Tofu. After all that, I was still up for cooking dinner. I skipped the Sticky Orange Sauce, and did just the Orange Coating. I served it with sauteed kale, but wished I had broccolini. It was tasty and very similar to the orange cauliflower dish.
