Piggy Porn

Miss Terry was still feeling pretty yucky yesterday, so we stayed home and didn’t do a whole lot of anything. I wrote a couple of articles for the next issue of the Gypsy Journal, answered a few e-mails, and called a subscriber who also wants to tow a Ford Explorer behind his motorhome, and was having the same problem locating a neutral tow switch. Since his part number is the same as the one for our Explorer, I think he can do the same bypass with an LED light, and make it work.

Sunday, after we got to Bushnell, I noticed that one of the kayak rack mounts we had attached to the roof rack of the Explorer had shifted. So yesterday I tightened all four of them up as much as possible. These racks are not going to be a permanent solution, and we’d like to replace them with Thule Hullavator kayak racks. The Thule racks are pretty spendy, but they will make the job of loading the kayaks much easier.

The folks who live next to the Escapees campground have several donkeys, and the RVers who stay here like to feed them carrots and apples. Anytime someone walks up to the fence, the critters come running up looking for goodies.

They are friendly animals that seem to love attention. We spent quite a bit of time petting them.

This little guy was a bit shy, and mama kept him from getting up close to the fence.

We also saw this turtle crawling along, and took its picture. The donkeys were curious about this strange animal, but they all seemed to coexist pretty well.

A while back this feral hog wandered onto the property and has settled in with the donkeys. Feral hogs are a growing problem throughout the south, and all the way to south Texas.

The donkeys don’t seem to mind the squatter amid their presence, and they pretty much ignore him. The hog, on the other hand, must be lonely, because he was looking for love in all the wrong places. Several times while we were standing at the fence, he tried to mount one or another of the donkeys, without much success. I don’t know, maybe he should have found a barnyard with Shetland ponies in it instead. Who knew we could find live piggy porn right here at the Escapees RV park! Not the type you’ll find over at TUBEV!

At 4 p.m. I went over to Social Hour at the activity center, and said hello to some folks. Terry still wasn’t feeling well, so she stayed home and worked on proofing a new book I want to get in print soon. As I was walking to the activity center, I spotted a converted Prevost bus that looked familiar, so I knocked on the door. Sure enough, it was Ron Walker, a fellow we knew from our bus nut days that we have not seen in several years. That’s one of the neat things about the fulltime RV lifestyle – we never know when or where we are going to run into somebody we met someplace else at another time in our travels!

If Terry is feeling any better today, we may go shopping for different kayak racks. Or, we may just stay put so she can rest up some more. I’ll know what we decided by this time tomorrow.

  1. NIck When we there in 2006 one of the young donkeys had terrible feet. I went over and trimmed them for the owner and in 3 days the guy was walking normally. As an aside we wnet over the new bridge at Hoover Dam and I think you will be able to make it. We were going to take pictures for you but you can’t even see that it is a bridge while you are on it. Look for the Sandhill Cranes in the open area at the south of the park. They weren’t even spooked by my dog. Ron

  2. Thankyou for my early morning laugh; piggy porn!

  3. Now that is one ambitious little pig!

  4. Big Grin…. Now Nick, I thought you had a great, easy to access kayak mount already – the back seat of that new Ford Explorer. :-))

    Seriously… I’m waiting to hear which kayak you are keeping – the hard or the inflatable one, and what Miss Terry decides, too… no need for a new rack if she goes over to the soft side (she can have her own, too… )

    I can see pros and cons for either hard or inflatable. (ie 5th wheel vs Class A debates) But I think I’d rather put my bikes on top of the toad, vs kayaks.

  5. If you see Ron again, tell him I’m sending a hug way. We’ll be at Bushnell by Dec 4rd or 4th.

  6. Why waste the money to buy a new rack if you decide to change to the inflatable kayak? Have you decided to keep the rigid kayaks instead?

  7. At this point, we are a mixed kayak family. I love the PaddleSki 435 and it’s all the boat I need or want. But Terry still wants to keep her hard kayak.

    Tim Ryerson from Inflatable Boats 4 Less wants her to try the Sea Eagle 385 FastTrack inflatable, but that will have to wait until we get to Arizona.

  8. This wins for the Best Blog Title of the Year!

    Now I haven’t looked at much p*rn in my life, but I do know it when I see it. And you, Mr. Piggy, just aren’t doing it right.

  9. I have a Sea Eagle Fast Track, and tell Miss Terry if she ever gets in one she’ll never want to mess with that heavy old hard kayak again! Its light, its fast, and it stores anywhere. Why waste money on an expensive rack and all the hassles of a rooftop boat when you can go so much easier? I resisted changing too, but I am so glad I did!

  10. Thanks for the continuing fine work on the blog and the ‘Journal. Your work makes it feel like we’re still F/T’n it. Great to check in with your tour every day or so.

    Since it’s about time to change toads, we’re especially interested in your adventures with the Ford. We’d sure like it if you keep us apprised as you work out the details. Your efforts can open up a whole new group of available toads for all of us.

    We’re sympatizin’ with Miss Terry. May she be back “in the pink” really soon.
