Thursday, April 5, 2018 - Triple Creek Campground, Newport, TN, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 6,912.4 Towing Miles For the Trip

Well, it wasn't warm last night. 32°F by morning, and the electric heater was going full blast around 6:00AM. It never warmed up all that much until late in the day, and even then it only got to 64°F. I'm not doing well at chasing the 70's!

Since it was in the 40's most of the day, I spent most of it in the trailer. I did some of my usual reading, started a library copy of J. A. Jance's Dual to the Death. While I prefer some of her other series, this one is doing OK so far. I finished Walter Mosley's Down the River Unto the Sea last night & found it enjoyable. I also did my usual blog & forum reading, and started working on a workshop I'm giving at the Boler 50th Reunion in August.

The description of the workshop: "This workshop is designed for those with adjustable cameras (advanced Point & Shoot or DSLRs) that are interesting in gaining more control over your camera than the program or automatic modes provide.

We will discuss the effect of choosing the Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO on the resulting image, and how you can alter these settings to produce images that are not possible on the program/automatic setting."

If you are interested, come to the reunion. There is room for 1000 trailers, and there are already hundreds registered.

That was about it for the day. Tomorrow I have to make a run to a grocery store for water. I still use bottled water for cooking & coffee, and am just about out.

Since it did warm up to 64°F around dinner time, I grilled a chicken thigh, and made Vigo Yellow Rice & fresh broccoli for dinner. The small 5 ounce bags of Vigo Rice were a find at the Ingles Grocery Store - the larger ones just make too much for one person. As it is, I have leftovers for tomorrow.

Until Tomorrow -
