CHILLED OUT IN HOT-LANTA!
Brrrrrrr! Camping in Atlanta this past weekend was a bit on the chilly side to say the least. We were fortunate enough to get a big surprise from Mother Nature. SNOW IN ATLANTA! I've been bragging lately on how beautiful our warm riding weather has been. Well, there's nothing like frozen kahoona's and buwanna's to humble a person.
Friday night was pretty chilly, but nothing unbearable. In fact, Polar Bear decided he was going to sleep under the stars in his sleeping bag, and he did! However, we woke up to a snowy, freezing cold, Saturday morning. He didn't sleep in long. The thin layer of wet stuff didn't last that long either, but Red Light Roxanne still managed to scoop up what she could and made miniature snow people. That afternoon, when the sun came out, we kept moving around to stay in the sun spots. It was definitely warmer than in the shade. We had four layers of clothes on and still had to wrap up in a blanket to keep warm. You can't see it in this picture, but Harley and I are watching the TV under the camper awning. Yes, it's tough roughing it!
Through it all, we still managed to enjoy some of our usual camping activities. We play cards, cook good food, and just enjoyed hanging out with some great friends. I was fortunate enough to hold my own for a while in a good game of Texas Hold'em. My buddies take their Poker VERY seriously, and it was an honor for me to even be allowed to sit at the same table with them! I learned a new dice game too called, Left, Right, Center. I won some $$ on my second game! Can't beat that with a stick!
As I said, the sun came out, the fans came in, and the races were held. This is our viewpoint from the observation deck on the Lone Ranger's hauler. It's usually very windy up top, but it's the only place you can see the track when your in the infield. Congratulations to all you Kyle Bush fans out there. He took the checkers twice this weekend when he won the truck race Friday night and then the Nascar Spring Cup: Kobalt Tools 500 on Sunday. Matt Kenseth won the Busch race on Saturday. So, in summary, a good time was had by all, and we will look forward to our next adventure together. Maybe when we go back in the fall for the next race in Atlanta, we won't have to take our longjohns! Be chilly! Lady R
