Not a great agility day, but I won a nice box of cookies at the worker raffle. Now I'm cozy here in the fiberglass tent, space heater on, dogs all curled up around me, listening to the wind roar, using bootlegged WiFi, and expecting up to an inch of rain overnight. I guess if the trailer doesn't blow over or leak, I'll be doing just fine! The wind definitely wiggles it a bit (the pop top is down.)

Yep, it's nice to be snug.

Where are you?

Up near Sacramento. It's a dedicated agility facility- property owned and managed by a couple that themselves do agility, and RV and tent camping on-site. Luckily in the winter agility is under cover (open barn, so not warm.) Water and electric hookups, although the majority of the electric hookups are off 10 PM to 6 AM (on a generator.) I'm in one of the 8 spots that has a full-time hookup. I'm near some relatively large eucalyptus trees but they are downwind.

It was a long, windy, wet night. We were snug and toasty, although the wind did rock the trailer a bit.

A friend of mine just bought a 2005 sticky, about 24 foot, and had it there for the first time. It leaked. My 1970 egg (even with a pop top) stayed dry.

It also got washed nice and clean, but I'm afraid the splashes of mud on the way home made the cleanliness history!
