Yesterday I swatted mosquitoes with one hand while I unhooked our campground utilities with the other, and we pulled out of the Long Beach Thousand Trails a couple of minutes before 9 a.m. Greg and Jan had left a half hour or so earlier to get fuel, and were pulled over on the shoulder waiting for […]
