What — no ‘innerds’ in the soup?

At the private campground we are staying at during February, they offer a calendar of activities. Bingo, card games, craft time, etc.  One of the entries for last week was Trash Can Soup night.  You needed to bring something to put in the big pot to make soup — with the exception of ‘innerds’ and pasta.  Holy moley — I can only guess why ‘innerds’ made it on the list  — someone’s spouse did NOT keep them in check.

We’ve had some interesting animals visit our campsites in our backpacking and truck camper travels – fox, moose, stray dogs, etc.  but yesterday a pot bellied pig came through several of the sites and then trotted off into the woods.  Very strange.

We are next to two tracts of the Swanee River Management area and there are several small ponds.  A couple of the ponds can only hiked or biked to but two of them are accessible by truck.  We put the porta bote in the back of the truck to head over to one of the ponds to do some fishing.  It was a beautiful day – in the low 70’s and sunny.  The pond is a perfect size to just use the oars — no motor needed (Glenn also said he needed some upper body exercise).  We fished all the edges and a brush pile and Glenn brought up a 4 inch shellcracker.  Not enough for dinner so I had to improvise with food from the camper:)

This week we hope to go on a kayaking trip on a crystal clear river with Manatees and fish of all sorts.  Oh yes, Glenn will probably challenge me to more humiliation on the shuffleboard court and horseshoe pits. It is a tough life:)

  1. Appears you guys are finding plenty to do with your time. Back here in our stick built home we are waiting through another winter, although it has been warm lately. Seems like spring may be around the corner. Karen and I have been giving a lot of thought to retiring in four years rather than eight.
