What can I say... the BLM, of all the Fed agencies, is pretty much the best at settin' up camps. Here we are on the banks of Mackay Reservoir... and in all this area, there's only, I think, 23 sites... Those are spaced out, oh, a 100'... there's water, outhouses, room to walk... and... with all the clouds lately :) ... shhhhh don't tell no one... power to keep the batteries juiced... at a price, cheaper then I can buy gas for the generator...
Not only do they seem to build the best camps... at $10 bucks a night... regular price... $14 if you plug in the juice... they're also generally the most reasonable... (just $9 bucks for us with the access card!)
Now... compare that with what the "RV" parks are gonna hit you for... and this right hyar is a freakin' bargain!... even for a Boondocker. :)
I talked to a gal the other day, she told me that a KOA out in Oregon tried to charge her $85 bucks... Huh? for a KOA? I can rent a motel... with color TV, wifi, and an ice machine, for less then that! :)
So... anyhoo... sometime this weekend we'll start movin' again toward Hamilton... and a fresh tire on the Raider... I just can't provoke myself to hurry any... but that was the goal weren't it? :)
Now... a buddy of mine from the wilds of British Columbia was worryin' 'bout me... Said all the Flower Pictures was settin' him to fret a mite... :) I told him not to worry... the Raider still gets rolled... it's just that with the weather and the back rubber gettin' awful thin... I been holdin' back a lil'.
I did finally get over the obstacles to my videography effort in the last couple of days... another nice thing 'bout havin' the power here, while it was cloudy... let me really focus on fightin' through the technology... without havin' to worry 'bout battery power... Told you I was gettin' lazy'er!
Here's one of the Video Samples I got loaded yesterday... Still kinda rough... I've got a lot to learn, and some more equipment 'bugs' to work out... but... they're comin' along!
Now... after sittin' there... punchin' buttons for too long we went and took another looksee around the area... You know... if you really are offended by paying any camp fees... just back, twixt here at the Reservoir... and the Town of Mackay... is a couple of spots.
One just below the dam, "Mackay Dam"... and the other, "Big Lost River" another mile or so toward town... where you can pull, a fairly decent sized rig, if you take your time...

Check with the forest svc. office in Mackay... she'll set you straight.
Just to keep things disjointed and a little rambling :) on another Looksee, back in Flaming Gorge... I remember thinkin'; maybe a guy shouldn't crawl so close to the edge... on windy days? :)
|*First step is a BIG ONE... along Deep creek road in Flaming Gorge*|
|*Australian Shepherds don't know nuthin' 'bout the sound of music!*|
Maybe... I should just go take a Walk in the Park!... or unload the scooter... and see if I can make another ride on that bald tire... without her blowin'! :) hmmmm.... where's that Murphy feller?.........
Settin' up for a bit... Courtesy of the BLM! :)
