Dooooods. My husband hearts to camp. And I heart to not have to take a walk with a shovel and a cottenelle wipe in the pocket of my hoodie when I gotta go number two. So my hubby got me one of them tents with a potty!!!!
Is that like the most redneckest photog? Saweet! So but I was wanting to push all the buttons and work all the parts before we took it into the wild but our amps or something weren't strong enough on the plug outside to amp it up or whatevs. So my Dad..who is awesome...way awesome...came over with A: extra pots and pans from their kitchen to be donated to the mobile cabin and B: his madd skillz at fixing anything that ever needs fixed and 3: his willingness to teach stuff to RodTodd and myself as long as we don't try to "get ahead of ourselves" aka touch stuff before he says to. Which is a lamerz rool btw. Here's some pictoral documentation of the fixings:
Plzkthanks note..well..more like take my word for it..Dad is wearing his Jeppson reoon shirt from DENVA 2009!! Which he has almost worn/washed off all the lettering he wears/washes it so much. But THIS next pic is a total framer for me:
My two favritt men in the whole wide world. Working together. RodTodd not doing anything without instruction. Dads tongue out between his teeth while using a power tool. ::: single tear :::
So anyway we learned what most of the gadgetty things on it did and immediately RodTodd put in for a Monday off and we drug it to a more appropriate trailerhood:
HEAVEN!!!!!! Check out how RodTodd's freakin awesome parking job made our views from inside the bestest ever!
EEEK! River all the way around! No need for a white noise machine!
Seeeeereeeeeissly!!!! It was so beautiful we would just sit there for like...MINUTES and just watch the river. But then I'd be all...where's my iPod we need some rawkin tunage!
So I made the little dinette area into a chillaxin bed thing and plugged the iPod into the aux jack thingie and hit the outside speakers to on too in case some of the poor peeps in tents wanted to enjoy some of Tim McGraws Southern Voice album too! Cuz remember..me ekwals helpy!!! p.s. that's my Lady Antebellum trucker hat thurr...aint it a dandy? Sheeeuuuuute. Oh yeah and that TV swivels in case it's just too much effort to watch TV not in the bedroom. Cuz I bet I didn't get tired cuz it was the first time we'd takin the hizzy out but after awhile I bet after pushin the button to lower the awning and pushing the button to level the hizzy and pushin the buttons to the other stuff..I will need to go to bed for awhile and watch some TV in the wilderness. That's why I packed 13 going on 30. And nemo.
But srsly... these are my favritt things about our new mobile cabin...not in this order:
Words...cannot...describe....it's like I srsly hear angelic music when I look at it. freelz.
But so then we totally did rill camping type stuff. Swearz. Look.
These are all different fishing holes btw. Amaze gorge.
He Swim slash fishes!!!!
I got all done with New Moon even!!!! And p.s. YES it DOES end with Edward proposing ya goofs. It's just not the TOTAL end. After he proposes or whatever/demands she marry him if he's gonna change her... Jacob goes and rats her out about the motorbike. Geesh.. You girlers need to read it again or something. But yeah I totally caught a trophy fishy too!
And then RodTodd was super jealous so he made me carry all my crap back to the burb MYSELF!
Fer rood. Oh and at one fishing spot I was all comfy with my book nstuff and a windy gust blew my lil umbrella out in the river so I selflessly risked my life to save it...but alas...this is what it looks like now
And this is what my poor LEG looks like now:
if you zoom in you can see my hero..RodTodd...downstream just a fishin away unawares of the heroic disast that just went on.
So you get the idea tho, right? We didn't just sit inside and watch movies and stuff. Check it out we even had a real live campfire!
(mostly because we felt we should. If we are being honest here. and I am trying to not have to have risk thoughts to have to disclose in group so I have opted to be sorta honest)
And then RodTodd took a hot shower (totally in his swimsuit in case you are a child or are my sister and are grossed out by implied nudity of the RodTodd nature) *I'm fine with disclosing this lie
Scrubbin all the fishguts off... just to go do it all over again
Oh yeah and it rained one of the nights. Boy were we glad we weren't in a tent! But then RodTodd's OCD kicked in and he started tapping and counting stuff and doing this:
I heart his OCD btw. A. Lots.
Then our super friendly miner guy neighbor Ed had to move to a diff campground:
cuz get this lamerz rool! You can't stay in a campground in the same spot for more than 14 days!!! Frowny face.
In looking thru the bagillion pics I took I found this one from when we went tent camping:
Don't get me wrong...I had a blast camping the tenty way..but I cannot imagine what kind of series of unfortunate events would have to unfold upon me and make me do the frowny face IRL...that would make me choose this kind of camping now. Even if I had wi-fi.
So anywayz. ONE MORE WEEK TILL THE REOOOOOON in MCCALL!!!! Weeeeeeehaw!!!! Now I got room on my camera for that funapalooza! I cannot WAIT to see YOU!!!!!
