89. Page, AZ

The plan was to overnight at the Wal-Mart. We'd been told that as far as staying over at a Wal-Mart, this Wal-Mart was a good one - quiet, not a lot of traffic, safe. And I know what you're thinking. Sleeping in a Wal-Mart parking lot - WHAAT? It's sort of a right of passage. Most Wal-Mart's don't mind since they get the business, you can re-stock, and it's just a stopping over point when you can't drive any further. We didn't stay over in the parking lot. It's hot in Page. Too hot to not have A/C so we stayed at the Page-Lake Powell Campground.

It was fine. Full hook ups. Gravel, so Lucy wasn't a total dirt bag. Did some laundry. $1.25 a load. Cheap. Had a nice little chat with two women from Tampa, Florida. I'm not usually super chatty, but we were all wearing the same shoes and I'm working on being a friendly camper. (In that same vein, I've also started waving at people on the side of the road. It's funny how many wave back.) So the shoe thing was a good opening. They had sons who lived in Seattle so we talked about that. And a daughter who was going to school somewhere. And, of course, the grandkids. And they were curious about us (once again, we don't fit the profile of the typical RVer). But the most important thing we talked about was how to fold fitted sheets. And before you discount this conversation, let me just tell you that what I learned was revolutionary. You start with one corner and basically tuck the other corners either under or over the first. And then I googled it. And as it turns out, it's not all that revolutionary at all. Martha has been doing it forever. Figures.

It was something like 900 degrees out. Way too hot for the mocs.
