Pure Evil - Skunked Out on Vacation


Back from a 3-Day vacation! We went and stayed at a cabin in Cottonwood, AZ for three nights. The picture above is the view of the Verde River from our cabin. It was pretty much Glamping, our cabin has AC, TV, a shower, mini-fridge and both a fire pit and a BBQ.

What made the trip memorable was the invasion of Skunks. Every night as soon as it got dark this family of skunks would come out of the wash and come right up to our camp site. There wasnít any flash on my iPad so I didnít get any pictures of the little critters (and you canít get too close for obvious reasons), but it was kind of fun to see them running around.

We ran into Sedona, which is like a total tourist hot-spot in AZ for a day and did some window shopping and mostly hung out by the fire and did some grilling. Lots of what a vacation should be, doing nothing.

We picked a good time to come home, the freeway is going to be closed tonight for construction and it was closed this afternoon due to a brush fire. I hope you had as good of a week as I did. Iím almost looking forward to going back to work now! Ha!

So weird hearing your vacation story while I live in Glendale, so I'm all too familiar with everything you're saying. I just went golfing this morning and sitting around at home this weekend so nothing as exciting as what you're up to! Glad you had an awesome trip, though!

Looks beautiful there. Glad to hear the trip was fun, and spray free!

Just got back from taking the entire family via air from Wisconsin to Clearwater Beach.

We had a helluva time.

Did you guys know that it's the highest-ranked beach in the US?

the lady and I were up on the rim at the beginning of the week, just outside of Payson. the smoke from the fire put a pretty thick fog on the view. luckily we got back before any road closures happened.
i had a dog get blasted by a skunk once while camping near Prescott. the little fucker hit both my dog and the tent. i managed to get most of my gear out of the tent, doused the campfire, put the dog in the back of the truck, and drove by to phx at around midnight. the stench was too much to even sleep in the truck that night, oi.

Just took my first vacation in a year and a half....I went to Vegas for the World Series of Poker. Cashed in 2 out of 3 events, but fired enough bullets in the one I didn't cash in that it was a wash. Basically spent a week for free in Vegas when it was all said and done.

Just returned last night from my first three week vacation this summer with the family. 8,000+ miles driven, 22 states visited, a dozen or so major parks/sites visited, and a blast was had by all. By the end of the summer we'll have seen 36 states and driven some 12,000 miles, lol. We leave again in a week for another long trip.

Life is good!

Worth mentioning is that Mrs. Evil turned 50 over the weekend! I was teasing her because we have been together now longer than we were apart. 26 years!

Instead you should hang out after the show somewhere down town. I'll make sure to sit in the booth behind you guys and squint the whole time.

If possible, I would love that. Not sure what the expo has planned for the MJR Crew that weekend but I'm sure we'll be around the entire time. Definitely looking forward to it!

Grats on your vacay. Looks like you had a good time.

I've emigrated permanently to my country of origin: Burma/Myanmar. And after 30 years of living in Canada, I am sweating my balls off.

Wow, congrats! Thatís a bold move. I donít think I could do something like that after 30 years living somewhere else.

I find it a long trip if I have to drive to the other Walmart up on Bell road.

I admire your courage. I went to live overseas for several years in my twenties and the culture shock was a helluva thing initially, even knowing I'd be returning home. Hold onto your dual citizenship if possible (not sure if that applies to these two countries). Makes travel easier.
