I like nature, just not extreme heat, cold or wet. I want to be out in it, not sheltered away looking at it Smile

Good morning from southern AZ! Cooler here, in the 90's today. They opened the barbershop and closed the swimming pool (thank you county health dept). Arrrgh.

Must be why everyone is swimming in the river, that's safer and more sanitary you know except for the flora and the fauna. I should be content, I'm not living under a bridge like some with less.

Warming up here in PA - Saturday we had 1/2 inch of snow in higher areas and it is to be in the mid eighties by Thursday this week. we will complain. Reminds me of a rhyme I learned when I was young - don't know the source.

As a rule, man's a fool
When is hot he wants it cool
When its cool he wants it hot
He is always wanting what it's not

Anyway thanks Maki2 for sending our better weather back.

Only 19 days left in the sticks and bricks the build is going a little slow but with discipline I will make it. Now where do I have to go to buy some discipline?

Spicy nacho chips will keep ya goin. Available at the local store.

RE: Good morning - nature lover - 05-12-2020

Spicy nachos will get me going alright but I won't get much work done in the bathroom.

There is no where for me to go camping even if my build was done. Everything in WA state and Oregon is pretty much shut down for free legal camping.

I don't know... the Klamath National Forest where I live... is it "shut down" ?? How does one shut down a forest anyhow? I know they do close the campgrounds (if there's a gate available.) If I wanted to park beside the road to sleep, I don't think anyone would bother me here. We're so far from civilization it is pretty laid back, but if you go into the store, you'd better wear gloves and a mask (so says the management there). Might be worth a call to the forest service office of whatever forest you might want to boondock in.. to see if they're still okay with dispersed camping.

Actually, most USFS and BLM land is still open for dispersed camping, and that's free. It's the developed campgrounds and day-use sites that are closed, and those are the ones that usually charge a fee.

The feds are letting the governors have the authority to say what gets closed within their state land including the ability to say that the federal land is closed for camping. Of course the governors do not have the right to overturn the federal government decision should the feds decide to close federal lands. So in Washington state at present all camping on federal and state lands, including dispersed camping is closed thru the end of this month. What will happen in June has not yet been announced.

There are still some private campgrounds open. Those were businesses deemed to be essential as they had some long term residents who would have had no other place to go.
