No walk for coffee - I just wandered around the campground. I did notice that they started hauling up the tent, so I took a photo. Went back around 3:30 and took another with it up. They still need to put the sides on, but it looks like there will be a show.

Speaking (well, typing) of shows, I drove over to the Tyson Wells Showplace (a bunch of booths along Kuehn Road on the other side of the tent) to see if there was anything new. Of course there wasn't, but I did get to see booths filled with socks, sheets, tools, very expensive solar panels, and two Trump booths, used hardware & stuff.
Back at the trailer I got out my comfortable chair, and ran out the awning. The chair that has the built in awning is handy, but not as comfortable as the padded one. It doesn't have a sunshade, so I needed the awning. Little or no wind, so it works. I don't like the armless electric awning because it has little support. It retracts if the wind gets too strong, but I'd prefer arms that let you tilt it & use it in the rain & moderate wind.
Since the batteries were filled by noon, and we had plenty of sun, I decided to try the Instant Pot for a longer duration meal. I made a stew, which required browning the meat in the Saute mode, then pressure cooking for 20 minutes. I used a total of 6 amp hours, of which all but a trickle was back in the batteries before the pressure was off the pot. Not too bad a stew, although next time I'll cut the time down a bit - the potatoes were a bit overcooked.
Until Next Time -
