This year’s Labor Day camping trip became a week long boondock event with several friends up on the Mogollon Rim. We went up on Wednesday to get early pick of campsites. Once we got there we did see a lot of RV’s that got placed the weekend before to hold their spot but, we still got the first choice location Dan & Mel scouted weeks back. The Mogollon Rim area is a great get-away in the summer with 75-80 degree days when Phoenix is 110 or above!
Most of the crew left on Labor day but three of us couples stayed until Tuesday to avoid the holiday traffic. Also makes it much easier to get a turn a the dump station. The next game we played was Over The Hillopoly, a different take on Monopoly. Dan being the senior camper got it for his birthday a while back.
Despite having 3 house batteries we managed to run them down on the last day. Since I wasn’t very good about running the generator at least once every 30-60 days to keep run fresh fuel, we could not charge up the house batteries during the trip. Getting the fuel filter accessible and cleaning the fuel line will be one of my first maintenance tasks when we bring the Bounder home to low elevations for the winter. The only bad thing about storing up north for the summer is that I have not built up a complete tool kit yet.
