I‘m now pretty settled in Utah and enjoying it so far, except for the heat! I know, I know, I’m from Florida. It shouldn’t bother me, but we were having a mild Spring/Summer in Florida. And now, it is in the 100’s here! We couldn’t move into our campground for a while, so we stayed at Lindsey’s sister’s house. And it was soooo hot! They have a swamp cooler and no AC. And we stayed in the basement…..ugh! We had to actually go get hotels a couple of times because we couldn’t take the heat. Poor Bambi was dying!
We did finally move into the campground last week, and I got Bambi a kiddie pool so she can splash around. She loves the water and used to go swimming in my parents house all of the time. So, she missed it. We have been doing a lot of hiking and MTB riding here in Utah. It’s so beautiful; and I have been training Bambi to walk with us without a leash on. She is doing really well. The hard part is when we are around other dogs. She gets very territorial, but she is getting better!
I have done a few private riding lessons out here in Utah. I have really enjoyed it. It is nice to work one on one with students. You can get more accomplished in a short amount of time.
I’m getting to like living out here, and it is fun to go exploring for new restaurants. We just found a Mediterranean store and a Polish store right by us. So, I’m pretty excited about that’
While we were still at Lindsey’s sisters house, I had my new truck and my trailer parked out in front of her house. One morning we were having coffee and Lacey (Lindsey’s sister) came running down the stairs and ran to the front window. We all jumped up. Someone had crashed into my new truck! We ran outside, and there was a guy that got out of his truck, which was totaled. He laid down on the ground and was complaining that he had to swerve out of the way so he hit my truck. Some of the neighbors had security cameras, and when the police came, they showed the footage to them. He didn’t swerve. He just went right into my truck! The police said he gets into trouble a lot and he was probably high or drunk.
So, I didn’t have a car for a loooong time. My truck was pretty bad and the insurance had to get me a rental car to use. But it happened over the weekend, so I had to wait a bit to finally get the rental. I finally got my truck back and everything is as good as new. I?m so happy! My truck was actually behind my trailer. And when he hit my truck, it almost smashed into the trailer. So, I was actually lucky it was only the truck.
I have been enjoying watching the outdoor motocross series, but this week, I guess, I will just ride myself or watch the Olympics since they are taking a break! Hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as I am!
