One runs into all kinds of rules in life, many that make little or no sense or maybe made sense at one time. We ignore them when we can or simply walk away when we can't. Thee are so many opportunities to be happy or satisfied by life, that ignoring the seemingly illogical is a reasonable tactic.

When I was younger I tried to be a fixer. Now I seek enjoyment recognizing the best I can do is fix myself. This does not preclude helping others.

If some one wants to exclude my 16 foot, 20 year old Scamp, fine. Over our 10 years we've found there are more wondrous places then we'll ever get to see.

Norm and Ginny, no wonder your photo looks so happy. What a positive, wholesome attitude!

I am working at internalizing the same kind of perspective. Sweating the small stuff makes mountains out of molehills and makes life hard.

Childhood

I've written about feeling child-like since I retired, a child with an adult mind, making adult choices having child like adventure.

I know all children do not have peace in their lives, but in general childhood is a time of peace where smiles are more common than frowns, where the everyday pursuit is fun, where joy accompanies your adventures, your best buddy at your side.

Choose joy, no more adult faking for me (if I say it enough times it will be)

(One of Ginny's favorite says is "First you think it, then you say it, then you do it" - have good thoughts.)

That is what I love about camping. When I am out with my camera, I feel like a child exploring, expecting to find all kinds of wonder. And I find it!

Registry
Red face "Self Contained"

We were in Green Valley with a cousin who recommended having reservations for a site in Phoenix where we wanted to meet another cousin. Everyplace we called wanted "Self Contained". If I mentioned "Porta Potti, they immediately said, "No." We finally played, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and secured a place at the Covered Wagon RV Park. Like other places being there is half the battle. They didn't ask to check our rig. The park was not located in the best part of town. The rig next to us looked like it had been there since the 50's with trash visible through the windows. The park charged for everything, bathroom access, pool access, etc. The first line on their rule sheet stated "Self contained units only."
I wonder if it may be some kind of local code.

The picture is Homelet in Covered Wagon RV Park.
(Don't know how to caption the pictures, themselves.)

Good to know, I'll just nod and say yes if I'm asked if it's self contained in the future. I was just asked this at the Big Sur campground. I pulled in at dark asking about camping for the night with little expectation given it was a Friday night and it's a super popular destination. They said there was overflow camping, but only if I was self contained. I said, "I've got a porta potty?" They said, "That'll do." I asked why it needed to be self contained and they said they closed the bathrooms near the overflow camping at night. But the rangers I was talking to were way cool and were trying to help out, they just had rules they had been given. Turns out the "overflow" camping they kept telling me was "just a parking lot", was WAY more peaceful, quiet and private than the crowded, loud "real" camping areas. I think they knew this, because there was some camping spots still open they could have put me in.
