Dale and I said our goodbyes on Friday morning and I got on the road "Solo" about 8:00. My intention was to get to a Forest campground just south of Provo early enough in the day to beat the weekend campers. I had no reservations, and knew I was taking a chance on ending up in a Wal-Mart parking lot for two nights.
But luck was with me and I tucked into one of only a handful of open spots in Diamond Campground, off Rt 6.
It was a beautiful space, but ended up being the noisiest one in the entire campground. I was right next to the campground host, who for some unknown reason felt he had to run two 6500W generators from 8:00 in the morning until the clock struck 10:00pm.
After a while it just became white noise, and I was able to read and watch a couple of DVDs. Hanna and I walked several times along a lovely stream. I had a sporadic cell signal, but it was enough to touch base with all my family members and read email, news, and Facebook.
I left this morning (Sunday) around 9:00, with any open campground between Logan and Bear Lake as my destination. I made stops at Wal-Mart, Petsmart and Home Depot, and with road construction a good part of the way,
it was 4:00 when I finally pulled into Guinavah-Malibu Campground about 10 miles out of Logan. I have another nice shady space, and was lucky to get it, as there were only two open RV spots in the whole campground.
I have no cell signal, but lots of road noise, so I will only stay one night and try to find a better spot farther north east tomorrow. I still have plenty of time and not many miles to go to meet up with Robin and Ken in Jackson Hole on Friday.
