Honey Do's and Pinewood Derby

Riverton, Utah High 63 Low 37

It was warmer today with very little wind, so I did one of Cindy's honey do's. She wanted black plastic on her garden because Tammy and Heather didn't want to do any gardening. With the lack of wind, I was able to get it covered and found enough stuff to hold the plastic down (I hope).

I also got all the propane bottles filled, and the truck washed getting it ready to leave tomorrow. We will be gone one week for sure and maybe until Cindy's Dr appointment on the 20th. We got most of our stuff into the trailer today and will leave sometime tomorrow.

We are going to a campground by Francis, which is about 60 miles east of Salt Lake in the mountains, and I don't know if we will have internet or not. We have been home long enough we just want to get away.

Tonight we went to Devon's Pinewood Derby. Each of the boys ran their cars 6 times in different tracks each time. Devon won once, tied for 2nd once and was 4th or 5th the rest of the races. He felt bad that he didn't win more, but still had fun trying.

The one with the Y was the big time winner. The silver one with #18 is Devon's.

One of the boys had a car painted in BYU colors, and I think he won every race he was in.

The little blond boy facing us is the one that had the BYU car.
Several of the cars weighed more than 5 ounces, and has to be drilled out to get under the limit. The computer timing the races showed an equivalent speed of over 200 miles per hour. the man running the races told us it was based on if they were full size cars.

They had lots of dessert's and everyone had a good time tasting the different things.
There was soft ice cream cones in addition to what's on this table.
Lots of Cub Scouts and their family's.
Thanks for visiting.


  1. I want to know more about the campground you're headed to. Where is Francis? What campground? We're going to be going east out of SLC when we head up to Pinedale. Is it anywhere near there?

  2. Now that you've used the Level Ups for awhile, are you happy that you got them?

    1. They are almost better than sliced bread. No more worries about whether the site is level or having to use blocks to get level.
