Blogging With Notes

Please Note:
Today is July 1st. This is our 06/30/2018 Blog Post. This post was prepared using Blogging With Notes and was published on Sunday, July 01 2018 at 3:30 pm.



7:10 am:
Lovely morning
As Boid’s cage was being changed, the view out Scampy’s rear window caught my attention.

7:32 am:
Blogging With Notes
It took me a couple of hours figuring out the best way to Blog with Notes. And, I’ll tell you this about that. Blogging this way came out swell!

I am able to view pretty much exactly as it will look when I publish for you to read! Blogging with Notes is turning out so cool. In my RVing years gone by, I was unhappy unless I was online. Now, being offline is not a biggy!

Right now, I am camping in the forest and preparing my Blog for you! Amazing!

The above is what a Blogging With Notes Page looks like.



9:30 am:
Breakfast
On the menu:
➜ Trader Joe’s Maple Pecan Clusters
➜ Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation!
➜ Also, a couple of slices of mild
➜ Cheddar cheese [For protein].



10:30 am:
Morning Walk
Looking down the road from our Camp, we could see the Sun shining on the bend of the road. So, Little iPhone and I walked down there.

On the walk back to Scampy, I picked up a fallen twig. The twig is the right length and thickness to aid me to keep my balance! It does take much help for my balance to be good. A little twig does the trick!



10:40 am:
Oh! The flowers!
We noticed that nearly all the flowers were growing on one side of the road. Little iPhone remarked, “Wow! That’s kinda strange.

Then, it became clear that the flowers preferred the side of the road where the Sun showed!

Flowers growing where the Sun shines!

Lovely orange flower!

Interesting Pinkish Flower


Wow! Mother Nature did a swell job making this Bell Flower.



11:00 pm:
Walking Back to Scampy and Tránsito
Below is a pic of Tránsito as he came into view at the end of our Morning Walk.

Tránsito waiting patiently for us to return from our walk.


12:13 pm:
Heading Out
We had a Team Meeting. The agenda was to decide to stay at 4th of July Camp or head out.

The vote was unanimous! We are heading out!

As we drove along, sometimes we used the Pioneer radio screen in Tránsito’s dash panel for an Apple CarPlay map guide. Other times we used the Maps.Me app on Little iPhone as a map guide.

MapsMe is terrific! [Thanks to Kevin Read of Kevin and Ruth fame for turning us on to Maps.Me!]


4 pm:
Pete Creek Campground
We hardly ever stay in a campground. But today we decided to stay in one.

During today’s trip, we searched up several US Forest Service roads. All of these roads were nondescript. Just the road and trees. Which is OK once in a while. Yesterday’s Camp was like that. But today we did not want to make another Camp like that!

We looked into a US Forest Service campground. And then drove on. Then we came to Pete Creek Campground. We drove on again.

As we drove on, it became clear that we were entering populated areas. That’s not good for seeking a forest camp. So, we turned back and paid for a site at Pete’s.

This is our Camp at Pete Creek Campground.

    1. Hi Ray,

      Take a look now.

      When I publish my Blog using Blogging Wih Notes, it's necessary to publish the text only first. Then, I go back and publish each pic.

      Bye for now,
      George

    1. Hi Stephen,

      Both teams, first the TiogaRV Team and now the Scampy Team have always been fortunate to find great Camps!

  3. At first I got no pictures, but lots of HUGE spaces between paragraphs...now everything looks normal - except there appears to be a volcano erupting in the background as you are walking back to Transito...

    1. Hi Brother Pete!

      When I publish using "Blogging With Notes" my Blog does not show the pics the first time.

      I must go back and publish each pic, one by one. Editing the pic, then uploading the pic to Blogger. Then publishing.

      It may take an hour or so between the first publish without the pics and the final publish with all of the pics.

      The great thing about Blogging With Notes is, I am able to do it offline. It's a great way!

      George

    1. Hi Sandy,

      Thank you for commenting! 😎

      Pete's Campground is great. Sites pretty far apart. Most sites at a different level to adjacent sites.

      I did enjoy!

      Thank you,
      George

    1. Hi Barney,

      Those darn pics! They are sooooo slow to publish. Must be a Google thing?

      You are welcome,
      George

  7. Now, that was an interesting breakfast, George! Those clusters sound scrumptious.Gotta try those! Love the flower pics. Trying to imagine what it's like to need heat right now; just didn'td with when it's 90 and humid. We're loving the joy you're finding in your latest adventures. Thanks for sharing with us. Judy

    1. Hi Judy,

      Trader Joe's Pecan Clusters are scrumptious! I love them. When I am heading into the wilds where there are no Trader Joe's stores, I stock up Pecan Clusters!


      As you may be aware, in the RVing World, it is easier to heat up by far, then cool down.

      I call the temperature where I like to be, T-shirt and short pants weather. Gotta love it! 😍

      Sharing is a joy. I am sooooo happy to share with you!

  8. About 11_12 mi. Up river from the Yaak Merc. the Upper Ford road takes off to the right. Shortly after you take it there is a bridge over the river and on the other side on the left is a pull out with some ponds. There are often moose there.
    If You go on up the upper Ford you come to the East fork crossing of the Yaak river just over the bridge on the left is the driveway to the cabin I lived in. Haven't seen it for years but I had a wood fired hot tub on the bank there and would watch the northern lights in it. The stars are amazing there!

    1. Hi Dan,

      Sorry! I've moved on from the Yaak River area.

      I am now Nite Camped close to the Town of Rexford on a US Forest road.

      Your description sounds terrific. Thank you sooooo much for your comment!
