Day 37, Sunday, September 10, 2017 - Page Springs BLM Campground, Frenchglen, OR

Dried Thistles
Sunday, September 10, 2017 - Page Springs BLM Campground, Frenchglen, OR, 38.1 Miles, 678.9 Towing Miles For the Trip

A short drive to the Page Springs BLM campground. I half filled the fresh water tank since there are no hookups at Page Springs. I looped around the campground, and found fewer open sites than there were yesterday. I did find one that has a bit more sun than I would have liked, however that will be good for the solar panels. At $4.00 per night (with the Senior Card discount), it will improve my average campground cost. I signed up for a week in site 8, a very large site with a babbling brook behind it. There are nice vault toilets & fresh water spigots (with threaded nozzles) scattered around the campground. I'm glad I got here around 12:00 - at least three trailers pulled in behind me, and most ofthe sites left are better suited for truck campers of Class B vans. A few campground & site photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.

With the amplifier, I have a great AT&T signal, and a good 4G LTE from Verizon, even without it. Still no FM stations, but a good XM Radio connection. I wonder if I'd do better with the amplified FM antenna I had in the 17B? It won't be easy to add one to the 21 because the antenna mounting bolt is also the antenna electrical connection, but If I find one I'll get it & hope I can modify things.

I now have to get back in the groove of dry camping. No air conditioning, but the Maxx Fan moves lots of air. It is currently 82°F both in & out of the trailer. I'll try to do most of the power hungry stuff while the sun is shining. That includes photo editing on the laptop, so I might be posting earlier than usual.

Dinner will be a grilled Bubba Burger & Broccoli.

Until next time -
