I have another noise issue that has been ongoing since I started full-timing. When the wind is blowing, what do you do about the little fabric strap/hook on your awning? I guess it has to hang down loose so it can be hooked to pull the awning down, but when it's windy, mine slaps against the outside wall and makes a constant noise. I can't seem to get it to go under the awning, tucked away and out of the wind, to quiet it. Is there a tip I don't know about?
And these are the Canada Geese swimming in the lake. Katie and I walked down a few times to get a closer look at the water and the geese. It was easy exercise. This photo was taken from our site, so it's not as sharp as if we were at the water.
Then we moved to this site. It's by itself, across from the Visitor's Center/Office and the restrooms/showers. We have no neighbors and a clear view of the surrounding hills and the area that was once filled with water, but is now completely dry.
If you look closely to the right of the post on the right side of the photo, you'll see Andy Baird's rig sitting in the middle of the dry lake bed. One of these years there will be water again, and maybe my campsite will have a view of boats.
To the far left, in the picture below, you can see the Visitor's Center/Office behind us, and on the right you can see the restrooms/showers across the street behind the shelter. Even though we are close to things here and very safe, they way we're parked it feels like we're in the middle of nowhere. Just hills, fields, and birds flying overhead.
Instead of seeing the geese in the lake, from this site I am enjoying watching them feeding and resting in the field near my campsite.
Things are pretty quiet around here. This morning I tried to tuck in the awning fabric strap from above on the roof, but it didn't work. Then we went over and dumped the grey water and filled up with fresh. By the time we got back it was still before 10 a.m. and the winds were starting to come up pretty strong. I was glad I got those tasks out of the way early while the air was still pretty calm.
Katie and I are taking it easy and being very lazy this week. I'm listening to Inferno by Dan Brown on my current library book on tape, and it's really good so far. It's a much longer than usual book, 17 hours and 13 minutes, so it's going to take a number of days before I'm at the end. When I'm listening to a good book, I appreciate the lazy days.
