And … I’m Home Again

Threats of snow did not deter intrepid K9 Nose Work competitors this past weekend. Frigid temperatures and slushy mud puddles did not dim the smiles. It was the first NACSW K9 Nose Work trial of the year, and it was well attended.

Four full days of trialing flew by in a blur; the advanced NW3 level teams first on both Friday and Saturday, then NW2 on Sunday and our novice NW1 teams winding things up today (Monday). What fun!

The direly predicted snow never did make an appearance, and although rain and wind blew through, it was considerate enough to wait until most competitors had gone home for the day. There were several mild cases (including myself) of sunburn reported!

All four actual trial days were filled with intermittent blue sky and clouds, with the blue skies winning the battle above the Chugach Mountains more often than not. It was a glorious long weekend at Camp Gorsuch Boy Scout Camp.

I promise I AM going to get a picture of Baxter & Rhonda with their matching back-to-back NW3 1st place Vehicles rosettes … but it’s not going to happen today.

I pulled down our driveway around 6:00 pm this evening, parked the RV in its handy already level spot, hooked up the electric and stood on tired, wobbly legs looking at the looong walk across the still muddy, soggy yard to the house.

Rhonda was zonked out under a blanket on the bed and hadn’t bothered to look up when I parked. She was happy – I’d had the foresight to feed her dinner before the drive home.

After a brief moment of consideration, I turned my back on the house, stepped back into the RV and crawled into the bed next to Ronni.

It’s 8:30 pm now and I feel at least moderately refreshed after a nice, long nap. Not enough to unpack anything and move back into the house, but I might manage a mug of hot chai before bed.

There’s always tomorrow. Nite nite, all!

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
