The Boys Ski To Lake Don Pedro Marina

Friday July 17, 1992

It's a beautiful day at Don Pedro. The boys want to ski alot. We ski them to the marina. We need ice. That's fun.

We have a nice day camping and a real good ham dinner. Everyone eats alot. The wind comes up before 9 p.m. It's really blowing hard when we go to bed at 10 p.m.

We've had a really nice time this week and mostly nice weather. I have felt surprisingly well and normal. I think it was good exercise for me walking up to the potty tent all week and swimming some.

Lake Don Pedro Marina is 8 miles from the camp spot, so a very long ski ride, even for 3 boys taking turns. We usually went to the floating marina store, pictured above, every other day for ice, gas, and/or ice cream. Also, they had real flush toilets there, which was so nice compared to the potty tent we set up near our tents. This was very primitive camping: no tables, no trash cans, no toilets, no showers. Everything we brought in had to be boated out, so when we made a trip to the marina we usually brought a couple plastic bags of trash with us.
