Camp hosting is sometimes fun, sometimes surprising, sometimes rewarding, always more work than time allotted for, sometimes not much fun. It is a lot like life in general. I was required to wear the vest and hat at all times. So I did.
After they left I got to lock up the gates. And I was alone in 80 acres of a meticulously maintained campground. And no one could get in. It was a great evening, as I watched the magnificent sunset with a cold Dos Equis and no further responsibilities. I slept until 6:30am, then had to head to Cortez for an eye appointment. With the check from camp hosting I treated myself to a hotel room, where I could shower several times a day. A very funky hotel. They have a bin of towels especially for cleaning trucks and motorcycles!
The eye exam got me referred to a retinal specialist, who will be coming to Cortez next week. So I will find a place to boondock until my appointment next Thursday. I will report on the outcome, and the boondocking experience. I was thrilled to find out that Medicaid worked wonderfully, and paid $10 for a two hour eye exam. Now I have to find my paperwork and buy groceries for the week of boondocking.
