    And I'm kinda thinking I should put my packs with food inside the car.

    But I really don't wanna move.

    Been a long long day.

    Pretty comfy though.

    Thank God Foxwoods is nearby....I'M already getting bored.

    Solo camping at a family campground.

    Glad the skeeters can't get in here.

    Six more days.

    I bought a nylon hammock from walmart. I have some rope and some tarps. I was planning on creating my own Hennesy.

    Field report, or orbituary, pending.

    The Hard Rock in foxwoods can be pretty good. There is also a nice place to drink at the MGM section of it. I dont really know if it has a name, it is just the bar on the open floor at the MGM end.

    Oh I was kinda worn out when I wrote that.

    Now that I had a chance to get a few in me, and sit down by the pond hearing the frogs talk to each other I'm feeling a lot better.

    My 500 lumen sunwayman v10r lit up clear across the pond, and that was kinda kewl.

    Lotta stress......coming down alone, up for 24hrs.......never tested Hammock, the heat, etc.

    And of course the first Site they gave me was totally wrong for my needs.......surrounded on all.sides by motor homes, lol.......pay no attention to the man sleeping between the sheets on a clothesline in the middle of the street, haha.

    New spot way better...off the road, some cover.....way bigger Site.......they even let me borrow power adapter (Site rigged for motor home.

    Only thing is I,m right by some clubhouse that has people in there on Friday nights.

    Pics tomorrow.

    How long did you last, Hayes. Those storms kicked *** for an hour or so in my AO. Some of the worst thunder I've heard in years. (Most of it was cloud-to-cloud, so no real "lightning" around.)

    Cooler today, but more humid.

    It started getting really windy....then I heard a sound that was just like a train......so I made a run for it......scrambled onto the record center steps.

    The sound was.......a train, lol. Storm actually kinda fizzled here. But it broke the heat and I finally got a good night's sleep.

    Finally made it over the casino today.........did very well.

    I'm here till Tuesday so I don't wanna jinx it but I'm off to.a.good.start.



    Just as a side note.....I'M really wanting a woman.

    So........lonely, lol.

    So just to recap....first two days were hell, finding my groove now though.
