Three More Nights
Then Sunday we'll go to Lone Pine for one night, and then go to Bridgeport for nine nights. We have reservations at Paradise Shore RV Park on Bridgeport Reservoir - a place we've stayed at before and liked. Don will be able to fish the East Walker River, the West Walker River, Robinson Creek, the Virginia Lakes, and a few other nice fishing places in the area. I'll get some last-minute sewing done and do some reading, too.
Then on the 15th we'll make our way across Nevada and into Idaho, with stops along the way, and end up in Gardiner, Montana on the 19th. Our summer home will be site #19 at Yellowstone RV Park in Gardiner, right on the Yellowstone River. I report for in-processing in West Yellowstone on the 20th of May.
Don and I had our usual pre-trip "discussion" about what I take along in the way of food. I take as much as I can, including condiments - I like to cook - and he thinks I should take the bare minimum and then do a big shopping trip when we get where we're going. I just don't see that as a feasible way to do things. All the things I'd have to leave here would spoil, and it would cost a ton of money to stock up later. I'm talking about things like ketchup, mayonnaise, eggs, cheese, lunchmeat, jelly, butter, salad dressing, biscuits, flour, sugar, coffee, and so on. Needless to say, I "won" the discussion, but I know that the first time the truck labors as it's going up a hill, he'll blame me for it. For those of you reading this who take long trips, what do you do?
