Well, the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight. For me, that light is May 1st, and if you know me well, you know what I'm talking about.

If you don't, the light at the end of the tunnel leads to my most favorite day of the year. That translates to the opening day of camping season. The campground where I have a travel trailer. opens up for the season on May 1st. Six months of weekend and vacation bliss.

I have to come up with a better term for 'travel trailer' since mine stays at the campground all year. Maybe the term 'camper' works best. I used to have a tow vehicle to travel around, but traded it in for something that doesn't guzzle gas as much. But that's OK, I have everything I need at the campground, including a beautiful 360 degree view.

I did take the hour drive to the campground last month to check on my camper and all the surrounding items outside that tend to get blown around during the winter winds on this mountain top campground. Sounds pathetic I know, but it's a nice short getaway on a warm, sunny winter day.

And it can't come soon enough. It's been a bit of a rough winter. Not so much in terms of the weather, but just stuff that happens in everyday life. My Greyhound unexpectedly passed away early this year, so that was a tough time. It's the first time I haven't had a Greyhound in the house in 20 years. It took a couple of months, but I have since adopted another who needed a home. She's a bit shy, especially with men, so it's gonna take some time for her to come around, but we will get there. Just takes a bit of patience.

It'll be interesting to see how see takes to the campground next month, but I'm sure as with all my other Greyhounds, it will be just fine. 28 days and counting.
