Sitting At The Camper

I’m sitting on the deck right now, writing this post on my phone using the WordPress iPhone application with a nice cold Sam Adams Irish Red while Jonna sits chilling across from me in our astronaut chairs – which is what I call these lawn chairs she found that recline and are totally comfortable.

While this is not the ideal way to blog for me (my hands get tired very quickly these days), I have to say it’s pretty cool to be able to write a blog post in the middle of nowhere and actually be able to post it.

The application also has support for the camera, so I am posting some quick pictures as well, that I just took while writing this – just to see how it works.

It’s interesting. For all intents and purposes, this place is supposed to be my refuge from technology. Up until now, I have been limited to Twitter via SMS / web and emailing Flickr photos from the phone.

Now I’m sitting here writing a blog post and watching Jonna roll here eyes at me for doing it. Life is good.

I never thought I would be this connected and have these online capabilities from a campground. What a time we live in!

Tonight is Karoke night here. Not a big fan. However, we do have a big stump to burn. Maybe we’ll just hang out here tonight.

More later. Thumbs tired.





Carol Gets A Back Seat for the Golf Cart

Jonna’s parents have a camper up in Wisconsin. Their golf cart has no back seat, so when they have visitors, its difficult to show them around.

Back in June, after a trip up to their camper, Jonna searched Craigslist for a back-seat for their golf cart. We wound up finding our camper (a little more expensive than a back seat) – that included a golf cart with a back seat. Carol and Bob would borrow our golf cart when they had guests, so that they could drive them around the grounds.

As the story goes, later in the year another couple also went out searching for a deal on a back seat after a visit up to Bob and Carols camper. They wound up buying a camper for themselves as well.

This month, Jonna picked up a golf cart ornament she spotted in a Hallmark store for Bob to give to Carol. She spent some time crafting the fine back seat (seen above in Carols right hand) out of cardboard, bubble wrap, and one of my old t-shirts. Once she opened this, Bob walked her out to his truck to reveal the back seat she has long wanted.

See, Christmas wishes do come true. It wound up costing a few of us some money, but now we have somewhere relaxing to hang out in the summer.
