Yeah, it was that kind of day.
Back at camp, all of our meals are cooked on open flame or via ovens fueled by coals. Don’t believe me? Here’s our wonderful cook, Kay.
Where did she get those muffins from? Let’s follow the trail backwards.
Above she has taken the muffins out of the oven. Still don’t believe me that those are ovens? Okay, let’s look inside and see what’s baking:
Meanwhile, where’s our water come from? Let’s follow that backwards to the source, too. See that big green bladder in the truck? That’s filled with water. Either that our it’s a giant California King-sized water bed, I’m not sure.
The water itself typically comes from nearby community pumps.
And to get that water you need to pump. Here’s Barnes, our camp chief doing that job.
Oh, by the way, did you notice the tat on the big truck?
This evening we go for a sunset shot (and sundowner drinks):
This is followed by a short night drive. Unfortunately, the only animal of note we managed to find was an owl. [someone reminded me that this is actually a rare sighting: it’s a Pels Fishing Owl; I’ve added my shot of him]
