Thanks to you and Bruce for the response.
I stay at campgrounds because they're cheaper than a hotel. Also state parks are usually more expensive than a lot of campgrounds, with limited stay (2 week max often) and most here do not have septic hook ups.
I switched to a city park but will look up the air bnb.
Huh... of course, i have never done rv camping... and it was a jillion years back that I stayed at state parks, and only Texas state parks.

I did that for a couple weeks or a month. But I could buy a card that was good for the entire time period I wanted (maybe it was a month). And yes, I think it was only 1 week at each place..

but those Texas parks had HOT showers!
nice clean bathrooms. I was car camping and was happy to stay a few nights at one,, then move to the next.. Way back then it was maybe $5 a night.

what year though? Uh.... 1989 I think. :lol:


But I'm ok with it! I have 10 less to feed. It's a good trade off.

And less work too! Also less poop, and less pressure on your pastures. Definitely a win.

There were two beeeautiful does there today....brown Nubians just covered in dapples. Two yr old twins. But wild as a buck deer!! One tried to jump over one of the ring handlers, then looked at the 8' ring surround as a challenge,

Ew. Those wouldn't have stayed fenced.


If you had been in a rush, they never would have cooperated....

So true!

Since @Mini Horses has been getting most of my "allotment" of rain, I don't think her pastures would have been a problem with those extra goats on them....;):hide:gig. But yeah, off the grain bill is nice... and this will extend her grazing/browsing even longer....
That is right! She was saying she had more pasture than animals at the moment! :lol:

Sorry about the Kleenex thing... I always buy the plain ones... and then get 1 box of the lotion ones for if I get a real sore nose from blowing... but some of them bother me too. Not the smell so much, but just the feel on the tissues. But if the nose is really raw and red, it does help when blowing to not feel like sandpaper.

I picked up some more Dove soap on sale, like to keep a good stash. Mostly I always get the shea butter one and sometimes the winter care... but they had a real deal on some that was "peonies"... so thought I would try it. WOW talk about smell.... It is sitting in the soap dish because I did not like the smell when using it and it is still adding "fragrance" to the bathroom.... I really like the shea butter one.
I can only use Dove original and Ivory soap.

Good to get the 10 pff the feed bill @Mini Horses even if the prices were down. That’s too bad on the two does. Pretty doesn’t make up for being crazy wild.

Moving slow this morning, coffee is ready, going for second cup. Y’all have a great day!

If rains are normal and cold doesn't come soon, I'll have some pasture into Dec...to off set some hay amounts fed. They start getting it even with some pasture as the weather can stress the grass and cause tummy upsets, so some is fed but rationed to late day. Then they progress to a more 24/7 situation....a balancing act.

Went to look at a buck this morning. Built right but, too small and done growing. Picture better than hands on. Pass. Waiting on video for one that may be a buy, looks good, pedigree good, then I'll decide if worth the 4 hr drive for in person. Third one, they need to answer phone so I can set a time to go there, more local. Not my first rodeo with these type, so I won't dance around with a "maybe".

Otherwise farm is usual stuff. Need to pop backhoe off and get bushhog on for tractor work. Grass is almost dry enough to cut some while I'm home. Mon thru Wed are tied up with work assignments! If I get some places today, might be fencing some more at end of week. :clapit's a goal, anyway.

@CLSranch is there a Walmart near where you are working? They will allow overnighters. Now you can't set up for cooking on grill and table/ chairs, etc but...park and sleep for free. Many truck stops have a dump site....fee? Many campsites will allow dump use for a small fee. Just came to mind.😎

Well yeah! With the pipes 6" below grade, 105°F temps and the sun beating down ;)

When I was a teen we did a family camping trip up CA, through OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, UT, NV, AZ. Stayed one night in Vegas. "Lovely" area, parked on an asphalt parking lot. Yeah the hot water was hot, so was the cold.

We are better, but feel like a truck hit us and backed up to see what it hit. Still haven’t made it outside yet, I’ll get there. No fever in several days. I’ve got coffee but I doubt if anybody wants it. LOL

Well, any improvement is good.

Nice that you are on the mend.
