You can’t make this stuff up

04 Jul

Jaime, Crescencio and Juan studying the situation

At the cookhouse breakfast, Meghan said, “You can’t make up my life.”

I had enjoyed a solid night’s sleep, so I asked her what was up. She said that she had been out int he middle of the night trying to locate a Harvest Host RV guest (another story), when she noticed lights in the middle of the hay meadow. She went to investigate, and discovered a young man who had somehow followed his GPS into the very irrigated field and gotten very very stuck. She retrieved him, pointed his really muddy self to a shower and a bed. Mind you, it was 3 a.m. It turns out that he was looking to spend the Fourth of July with his uncle, who lives in the mountains to the south and west. We mustered our crew, pulled him out, and delivered him to his grateful uncle and cousin. Just another morning on the Ladder Ranch!

    OH my god! So if I join Harvest Host and get my next life going with the RV I can come and spend a night at Ladder Ranch and meet the dogs???????? (And the human characters too, of course 🙂 )

    Sharon, some people think simply because they have a 4WD vehicle they can do and go anywhere they want, despite surface conditions! See it over here in Northern Utah too!
