Yesterday I wrote about why we have twice cancelled our maiden voyage in our newly acquired used RV camper.
So today we were scheduled to finally take the camper out for a drive to a destination just 140 miles from where it is currently parked at our ranch. That destination is Saratoga, Wyoming, which boasts of natural hot springs by the North Platte River. Sounds like fun. We went there a few years ago for a Cowboy Poetry Gathering in a nearby community, Encampment.
But here is the thing — we watched the news this morning and learned that temperatures there are much colder than temperatures here. Ergo, we are reluctant to travel 140 miles so we can sleep in a tin can in below-freezing weather.
We can’t spend the entire weekend in the hot springs.
There is no place like home, especially if home has a cozy fireplace.
