Oh what a night!

Here is the post I made right after it happened.
I figure the link may tell it more accurately as I have already evidently embellished somewhat from my cloudy memory.

I think you can get the idea though.

They said it was so cold there then that reptiles who sleep in trees went dormant overnight and would lose their grip and just drop.

I am a believer.

On another interesting note I just remembered.
Often when I try to find a camping spot in Florida the park is said to be full.
I always ask again saying I have a small rig ad maybe can get into a tent spot or something another RV may not fit in.

When I say I am in a Casita they never have any idea what I am talking about, if I say I have a Scamp there is instant recognition and often I do get placed somewhere small.

Just kind of interesting the Scamp awareness seems more Generic like the Kleenex of the Egg world?

Also they often think I mean a Teardrop and then they can't wait to see it,Go figure?

My vacations are mostly solo, now that my wife doesn't go (at first didn't feel well enough, but now just prefers sitting at home with the computer). At first I felt really odd, even guilty, going off alone. Now I enjoy it. I have only myself to please, can set my own pace, and hike trails she would never have set foot on. I call her every day, and by the time I get back after a long trip we are very glad to see each other. We are each enjoying doing what we like to do.

These are my constant companions: Badger and Kiwi. Badger on the left
Badger and Kiwi are so cute.

Safe travels.

Great photo, David! I love seeing pet pictures (perhaps this needs to be another thread! Yes!) I take it Badger is a border collie mix? Great travelling companions no doubt.

Solo Travel

Of course I'm not travelling yet.... but in the next couple years, when I do, it will be as a solo traveler. I see that there are a lot of solo women travellers - such as this site's own RVSue (hi Sue!).

I'm looking forward to it! I believe a 17' Casita will be just plenty of room for me.. and yes, I might just have a couple dogs on hand that would love to join me. LOL.

They are McNabs. The McNab breed is not well defined though, because they were developed for herding, not for show. They are basically a cross between a Border Collie and a Smooth Collie. Both of Scottish origin. Badger is the truest to the breed. Since these dogs are always bred on ranches, they tend to get a little interbred with other breeds. Kiwi has a little something extra in the mix, but who knows what? Badger is 10 and Kiwi 7. Both are very energetic, extremely intelligent, and have great dispositions. They are the most couragous dogs I've ever seen that didn't tend toward aggression. I've seen Badger stand down a 1200 pound bull, but he has never harmed anything. They are not a beginners dog though. They need dog savvy owners or they will out manuever you at every turn. They need to be engaged and challenged. Some breeders won't even sell them as pets, but for me they are the ideal companion. I got both as pups off of working cattle ranches.

Fascinating, David! I have never heard of this breed. I can see they are incredible dogs. They do sound like wonderful travelling companions.
I think I'll start a 'travelling with pets' thread so you can post more about them there!
