I also participated in the star viewing one night with astronomers from a local club.They had about 10 different telescopes set up from basic home models to larger models.
We met a family from Nova Scotia who have a beautiful Irish Setter, Bridget. I met another full timer, Tracy, from Montana, living in an Airstream. She and her husband have a mixed breed adopted dog from a kill shelter. His name is Arlo. Scary looking dog with golden eyes, but a real sweetheart. Somehow we got on the subject of crafting and she stopped by our campsite so I could teach her to crochet a hat. She knew the basics of crochet, so she was an easy student. When I stopped by her site the next day, she had it almost finished.
