Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We had planned to move to Astoria today because this park (Cape Disappointment) was going to be full over the weekend.  However with all the wind and rain we had, Carol thought maybe someone would cancel.  Sure enough, site 7 opened up and for the full length of our stay. (Till Dec 5).  So we decided to move to that site yesterday and just stay here.

The weather forecast for today was for very high winds.  We did have them through the night and until about noon or so.  It would have been hard to drive the RV across the Astoria bridge with a 45 mph crosswind, so I was just as glad to stay.  Even if it means little or no cell and internet from the RV.

Tomorrow I will put my cell booster antenna on the roof and see if it makes any difference.  We can get emails, just not very fast.  Phone calls are really iffy too.  So maybe the external antenna will help some.

We are also planning on driving to Seaside so Carol can go to a craft fair.  We will just make a day of it.  Hopefully the weather will be somewhat cooperative.

I watched some football games today and, as usual, teams I root for lost.  I was all for the Lions and they were clobbered.  Likewise rooted for the 49ers but their offensive line could not protect the QB and their defensive line could not put any pressure on the QB.  That’s a sure recipe for a loss and sure enough, that’s what happened.  Oh well, Camas plays in the 3A Washington State semi finals tomorrow night and Skyview plays in the 4A on Saturday.  My friend John Bardin is the back judge in that game so I will try to track it on the phone as best I can.

And Sunday the Raiders play the Bears.  That may be a closer game than many expect and the Raiders may have their hands full.  (hope not).

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day, Dave. We sure did. I'm sure you are looking forward to some sunshine in Pismo Beach. Should be plenty.
