June 7 -10th. Jackson Meadows second trip this year. This time I was in site #30. An awesome view, nicely private (thats why it’s called the honeymoon site), plenty of shade where you want it and sun where you need it for the solar panels. But … a pretty steep hike down to the lake. Not far, but steep.
Weather was great up until Tuesday afternoon when it clouded over and began raining around 7pm. Also with thunder and lightening which, as usual, freaked Ben out completely. He seemed to feel the safest place to be was tucked in the leg area of the passenger seat side of the RV. That is until his calming meds kicked in, and I was able to coax him to his bed.
The Yeti and solar panels worked great and kept my rv batteries totally charged the entire time. Pictures below show the setup for the Yeti relative to the batteries and the nice spot I was able to set the panels.
Fishing was not great but good enough. I caught three trout but decided to do the “catch and release” route this time. I very much dislike killing fish. As usual, the kayaking early in the morning, with the lake like glass was just fantastic, whether I caught fish or not. I put the dogs in “Doug” the RV and give them a pigs ear to chew, hoping to keep them busy enough to not complain when I go fishing. However, Biggs would have none of that business the second day. He musta barked for an hour and a half inside the RV while I was on the lake. I could hear him all the way on the opposite side. Luckily he didn’t really bother the neighbors, and there really weren’t many in the campground anyway (midweek and just before school is out). This time I found good fishing in the relatively shallower water to the left of the campsite near the end of the finger. Tried several lures, however the only thing that worked was the SEPS dodger followed by a fat worm.
Here are the pics. I took all with my little Lumix this time. I like to always bring it with me, just in case but didn’t think I would be doing much photography since I have been here a zillion times now, so didn’t take my better camera on hikes etc. The normal posers, Ben and Biggs, are in many of these as usual.
