Great! Have fun!

And I really like the new word -- boone-docking. It invokes the spirit of Daniel Boone!

I found these quotes attributable to Daniel Boone:
“I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.”
“Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.”
Felicity, the companion of content, is rather found in our own breasts than in the enjoyment of external things; and I firmly believe it requires but a little philosophy to make a man happy in whatever state he is.
In this situation I was constantly exposed to danger and death.
Let peace, descending from her native heaven, bid her olives spring amidst the joyful nations; and plenty, in league with commerce, scatter blessings from her copious hand!
In such a diversity it was impossible I should be disposed to melancholy.
In the decline of the day, near Kentucky river, as we ascended the brow of a small hill, a number of Indians rushed out of a thick cane-brake upon us, and made us prisoners.
A zeal for the defence of their country led these heroes to the scene of action, though with a few men to attack a powerful army of experienced warriors.

My absolute favorite place to boon... unfortunately I wasn't able to make it down there due to Covid, but there's always next year.

I haven't gone out on ventures as much as I would like ... nothing to do with the 'big china virus scare' the media is pounding 24/7/365....just timing.
Visited the Teddy Roosevelt National Park, the Custer Battlefield, and Sturgis Annual Motorcycle Rally.
Had a great time.
If wife gets some time off, will make another venture out.

The air conditioner in our aging ('07 x210) hasn't been doing its job for a while now and I haven't gotten around to a repair or replacement. Rather than suffer the heat and humidity of Summer, once again our FF spent a good share of the camping season in "extended confinement"! Got it out before Labor Day this year (it was after LD last year) for some late season trips.
As I write this we are enjoying a pleasant stay in the northern most part of Wisconsin (Bayfield County) camped along the shores of Chequamegon Bay (Lake Superior). No need for the A/C with high temps in mid 60s and low near freezing. The propane heater has been doing a great job at night! Used the electric space heater for a bit but the power cord was getting too hot ( more like warm) for my wife's liking, so I put it away. I need to finish off one of my propane cylinders so I can get it recertified, so I'm not so concerned about the propane consumption. Despite being 13+ years old, the x210 is serving us well (except for the A/C). The city managed campground doesn't have water hookups at any of the sites but I filled the on board tank upon arrival and top up as needed using a 5 gal jug. The city has an artesian well with great tasting water so I guess I'm satisfied with the situation.
We're hoping to get a few more trips in before the snow flies. I would be very happy to have a bit of Indian Summer into the end of October. (Don't know if that's cultural appropriation or not but I hope it's not offensive to Native American or First Nation people.)
If you're not livin' on the edge, you're takin' up too much space!
