It was definitely wet camping! It started out cold and foggy, and then was cold and cloudy and then cold and rainy. The rains waited until about 8:00 to come in, so we were all done with dinner and everything, so there was no real reason to have to go out in the rain - and AJ and I just went to bed! It was so loud in the tent, I had a hard time falling asleep. The rains stopped during the night, and it was clearing up by the time we left, and there was sunshine at my house in the afternoon - it figures!
The campsite is beautiful! It is a on a ranch out off of Bowman Road in Cottonwood. It has a decent road into it - if it hasn't been too wet, and two small ponds for the boys to fish. You would think we would see anybody out there, but it was a busy place! The first person to come through was the owner (a friend of one of the adult leaders, and why we got to camp out on the property), and he was out looking for a young bull on the property - they thought it had wondered over to the area we were camping in, and he was going to move it. Shortly thereafter, a couple of cowboys, complete with horses and a cow dog. The owner had located the bull, and they were going to move it away from us. Later that afternoon, the owner's son and grandson came through, complete with bird dog - they were hunting ducks in the area, and wanted to make sure they knew where the boys were, so they didn't run into them - just past the camp was a great reedy area. More people that I expected to see out and the back of nowhere!
AJ and I decided that camping with the scout adults is fun - they camp often (usually once a month) and have been doing it for years, so they have everything needed, and lots of experience. We had good food, lots of fun stories, and a lot of fun.
