We had a very leisurely start to the day as we listened to the hub-bub of folks packing up and gradually rolling out. When Gary knocked on our door to say goodbye and I was still in my pj's, I decided I had better get myself cleaned up and dressed!
After a big breakfast, Steve went out to clean out and sweep the truck box in preparation for loading the quads, while I did the dishes and cleaned up inside. Then it was time to ride the quads over to the water hose and give them a good washing.
There was great water pressure to spray off all that mud!
As it turned out, other than a few sprinkles of rain, the storm seemed to skirt around us. Shortly after 4:00, we took a bevie and our chairs and went over to join Ralph and Sheila and some of the folks staying another night.
This is Barb with her very cool puppy, GiGi, Barb is in the RCMP and stationed WAY up north in Paulatuk, Northwest Territories...on the shores of the Beaufort Sea. There are only 300 people living there and a can of Coke will cost you $10! She has been on a Polar Bear hunt and has some fascinating stories of life in the Arctic. This is where she adopted 8 month old GiGi, a cross between a Terrier (I think) and a fox.
After dinner, we re-joined the group over at Ralph and Sheila's who were sitting around a propane campfire. A tractor had been loading old logs into the back of a dump truck during the afternoon...well, I guess the dump truck ended up backing into the ATV/BC trailer that was parked nearby...oops! Greg and Suzie will now have to deal with the insurance claim in the morning so won't be leaving too early.
Just before 10:00, I said goodnight and headed back to the trailer, leaving Steve to continue his visit for a little longer. It was a much quieter night here...with only about nine RV's spending a final night.
