In the future I'm going to keep the cover off the spare until we hit the road.
Hi: Ray N... Wren in Pensacola do as the Pensacolan's do... Keep the cover OFF!!! Even the birds like Escapes. Alf

That one would have made a good photo for the "what's outside your back window?" thread, but I wasn't quick enough on the draw.

Hopefully your little wrens will leave the nest soon and you can go camping.
Life in Florida!

An update from my last whine:

- When I was at Storrie Lake State Park near Las Vegas, NM, it stormed. I thought the high winds would blow my trailer into the lake. Then it would be SS Escape, or rather HMCS Escape. (Is that right?)

- It rained hard at my last stop, Hyde Park near Santa Fe. The rain made a lot of racket, too. I guess the 8700-foot altitude lets the rain fall fast and hit hard. Makes sense to me.

- As I was leaving Santa Fe I heard a New Mexico state official say on the radio that the state parks' lakes were all doing very well, thanks to recent rains. Then she listed all the lakes I had camped near in the last month or so. The only one that was still down was Elephant Butte Lake. I didn't camp there. New Mexico, you're welcome.

- I'm currently at San Luis State Park in Colorado, near the Great Sand Dunes. It has rained on and off this evening.

It would only be HMCS if you give it to the Canadian navy... I don't know what ship prefix would be suitable - I guess not MY (Motor Yacht) since it has no engine.
