I got almost the same spot as last year, but the view out the door wasn’t quite as spectacular, not that I spent much time looking out.
I pulled in behind these two FWC’s and asked if they minded the competition’s product joining them. Actually, they were great guys who were on their second FWC each and quite proud of their rigs. We exchanged rig tours and compared the differences. I don’t think any of us were convinced that we were in anyway lacking. It is nice to have options. They commented that they were surprised I could unlatch from the ground (I’m only 5’4″). It made me reconsider the value of having a smaller truck, even if it is a bit wimpy. I counted at least 12 Pop-up campers at the festival.
I put up my EZUP to mark my spot in case I needed to run to town, but left it low all weekend, I didn’t need to hang out there when there is such good music in the main meadow and workshop tents. My favorites this year were The Revelers (Zydeco) and David Grier (amazing guitar player). The Revelers were promoting their black pot festival in Lafayette in late October. Maybe next year.
Then I snagged a site in Tuolumne Meadows for Sunday night. It was cold at 9,000 feet. Very glad to have my heater.
Nothing momentous, but still a great getaway in the Cabin on Wheels (COW).
