Well at least it wasn't my medical gear or uniform that I left at home.

This is the start of working every weekend as an EMT for a month in addition to my normal Monday through Friday job.

I changed the oil, oil filter and transmission cooler filter before the trip and checked all the other fluids and air pressures. Had more than enough food on board, laptop cell phones, chargers, wallet, generator and fuel what could go wrong.

Headed down the backroads to La Jolla Equestrian, I had not been there in two years.

I arrived about 3 hours before the first ride to get a prime spot for my rig to stay and me to have minimal carrying distance for my gear to set up the first aid station yet not have my generator annoy anyone.

The warm up got a bit crowded

With two rings running we got done around 4pm on Saturday. As I was getting ready to head for the camper the mother of one of the rider i know came up and said that their trailer broke loose of the hitch and was blocking the road about 100 yards from the entrance and wanted to know what to do I asked if the horse was still in the trailer, It was. She was on the cell with the truck so I said get the horse out now while traffic was stopped and get it back onto the property and into a stall where it was safe. 10 guys then lifted the trailer tongue, the jack snapped off when the trailer came off, back onto the ball and they got the road clear. I got another friend to load the horse in their trailer and take it to its home. That was my excitement for the day.

Ok my favorite time of day..start cooking time. I made this in 30 minutes using the oven for the Salmon , 15 minutes a side, a frying pan with boiling water covered with a splatter screen on which I placed the vegis I was going to steam and then covered it with another upside down frying pan

the result.
oohhhh man this was the best meal yet, that I have cooked in the Lance Camper. wild Atlantic Salmon baked with a Cajun rub and chopped garlic, steamed and buttered Asparagus tips, Kale salad, and a non Alcoholic Beer to wash it all down

the after taste made me want to eat more than I should in a diet busting manner.

After dinner I watched the clouds form on Mt Diablo

and the suns yellow glow to the west behind the windmill on the hill

Took a shower, surfed the net and got ready for bed thats when I saw it, how the heck could I have forgotten it when I changed the bedding?

[image]

No dang pillows

I tried the armrest cushions from the dinette. A brick is only slightly harder. I was going to just use a wadded up fleece jacket when in a flash of clarity I remembered that my wife keeps a foam neck pillow in the cab, Saved! not the best pillow but dummies cant be that picky

[image]

After a good nights sleep It was up at 6 and food time. Hey I like my food so sue me.
[image]

We ran from 7:40 am to 5:45 pm Sunday Saw a bunch of old friends, good crows in the spectating area, had no injuries and I got paid well. all in all a good weekend.

With little fanfare I hit the road for home

get to do it all over again next Friday in the Garlic Capital of the World, Gilroy California. Want to bet I do not forget the pillows this time?

Well met, my friend, well met!

Glad to hear that the biggest need of your skills all weekend was the trailer coming off the hitch. And forgetting the pillows. I trust the therapeutic dope slap was administered in timely fashion, and that next weekend is as drama-free.

Fun and interesting as usual. Glad you only forgot your pillows. I thought you were going to say your fishing gear. Then I would have felt for you.

You don't keep pillows in the camper?

Great trip report and photos. It's nice to see all of the different places folks take their TCs.

We need more info about the trailer moving into the road. There's got to be more to the story, and we didn't even get to see a picture of it. Sounds like you need to buy at least one more pillow. [emoticon]

Don't feel bad[emoticon] The first time I took my AF1150, after painstakingly going over everything I thought I'd need, I crawled into bed, looking forward to a nice night of sleep, only to realize I had no sheets. Oh, I had the comforter that came with the camper, on the bed, but no sheets. Let me tell you, that polyester is mighty scratchy[emoticon]

What a great write up...and such a great facility for equestrians. I, too, love the meals. But, I've had to cut out carbs and sugar. We do Salmon, but my specialty is Indian curries, along with Paneer Saag, and Dal Makhani. Our Indian food smells mix into the bar-b-que and charcoal cookery of the campsite producing a mouthwatering aroma.

You do good work. Look forward to your next report.
