Camping


I enjoy camping. Somewhat. I also enjoy staying in motels. Somewhat. Both have their positive and negative aspects.

The biggest positive about camping is that it costs a lot less than even a cheap motel. The biggest negative about camping is the time to set up and break down the tent and sleeping gear (bag, pad, etc.). Also, having to get dressed in a tent can be a bit of work. Usually, there are showers available in most campgrounds, but not always and sometimes, even when they are available, I wouldnít want to use them. Still, I can park my bike right beside my tent, which is a big plus. I enjoy sleeping in my tent. Iíve done it enough that itís home to me.

Motels are a lot more convenient, in many ways, but theyíre relatively expensive. When I was Tramping in 2015, I averaged one night a week in a motel. That seemed to be about the right combination of campgrounds and motels.

When everybody went to Springfield for the Memorial Day Mile, most of us stayed at the Route 66 Motel. I had stayed there a few times over the years and had really liked it. The most vivid memory I had of the place was coming out of my room and seeing a pale turquoise plunger frame Sunbeam motorcycle in a glass case. There was a late 40s Indian Chief up the hall and a 50s Ford F100 pickup on a raised area out in the back parking lot. The rooms were nice and, though it cost a bit more than Motel 6 or the Red Roof, I considered it worth it.

After this yearís visit, I wonít stay there again. The place has really gone downhill. I would consider the Motel 6 to be almost luxurious by comparison. Plus, I came home with fleas, which Iím having a hell of a time getting rid of. I have enough bites on my ankles and legs that I could use them as a display of the craters of the moon. Iím not alone in this, either. I know of at least two others who stayed there who also have been getting bit.

This morning, I started pricing rooms for the rescheduled Mile and the regular races on Labor Day weekend. I checked with several sites and theyíre costing more than three times what it would cost me to camp. So, Iíll be bringing my tent and sleeping gear and staying in the campground at the Fairgrounds.

When I was on the road, I stayed in some pretty sketchy campgrounds. But I never had to deal with fleas. They just didnít get into my tent. I sleep well in my tent, it costs less and Iíll be right there in the Fairgrounds. Itís cheaper and closer. And if I have to walk (or ride) to the bathroom/showers, thatís OK with me, as well. Fifteen bucks a night and no fleas beats the hell out of sixty seven bucks (+tax) and free critters.

Jerry & Carol; I don't know, at present, just what's going to happen. I suspect that the short track races will be moved up a day to Friday since the rescheduled Mile is going to be on Saturday. But I don't know. Before my plans get any more specific, I need to wait for more information.

Here is a thought, I didn't bid the job. Material showed up and I just started installing it. I wonder how much I'm being paid.

It was posted as news on CNN's site. It's probably a pack of fabricated lies. Still; it would be fun!
