Campo Blanco, July 2011 Session: Part One

We are safely home from a wonderful session at Campo Blanco, where we greatly missed our The Luke. The Mom was moist to leaky about the eyeballs, both before and during our stay there... The Luke loved his trips to Wimberley. We felt his enthusiasm, and proudly displayed his banner outside the bedroom that we often shared!
And now to tell the story of our trip... Please grab a cool drink, take a potty break and otherwise make yourself comfortable...

TRANSPORTATION.We had resolved ourselves to book the trip in the temporary rental trolley, and at the very last minute... Our Forever Trolley was made "whole"! We were a bit nervous, but decided to go ahead and book it for a long route. [This story is actually a rollercoaster of yes no yes no yes no yes no yes no... but I've saved you from the angst.]

DAY 1. Saturday, July 2. The trolley packed and boarded, our first scheduled stop was to pick up my the Aunt Madison and my Cousin (twin brother) Cane! Seating arrangements were as follows: The very back was mine. Reuf and Cousin Cane were in the middle seat. Aunt Madison rode shotgun and the Mom, of course, drove. Our trolley was booked solid, so a supplemental trolley was put into action, featuring Mister T as driver of his six passengers.

Trip Synopsis:

  • Reuf chewed through one leather handle on the mom's duffle.
  • Reuf chewed through Cousin Cane's leather leash.
  • Reuf ate a Texas map.
  • Reuf chewed a hole in the sheet covering the seat.
  • Reuf chewed an emergency leash.
  • Reuf celebrated the mid-point of the trip... with two pink treats (aka benadryl!)
Arrival at Campo Blanco:
  • Relief and Joy... It's time to Relax!!! Let the festivities begin!
  • Atlas and Cane made a run to the river. Quick scan of the river below our bluff... and they're not there!
  • Uncle T takes off to hike the river in search.
  • The Mom decides to drive the road. Luckily, she finds them as they beg to be let into a house down the road. Cane hops in quickly. Atlas disappears for a bit, but is finally found again... and coaxed into the trolley.
  • BAD boys are delivered back home. And the Mom goes back to walk the river in search for Uncle T.
  • She returns back and decides to drive down to the bridge... but Uncle T is within eyesight of Campo Blanco. He is incredibly relieved to learn that the bad have returned to the fold.
  • Everyone but Reufus is tired.
  • Pictured here, before Reuf peed on the bleu rug... is Buddy!
And who knew at the time... but the Reuf kicked off the great rug washing event of 2011 for the Mom! I had choice words to call him, but the Mom reprimanded me and so I edit... "monkey bird"!
Stay tuned for more Mischief, Fun and Our Cast of Characters! Fewer Words... More Photos!

Oh My.....what a trip, sure sounded like never a dull moment.
Glad the Trolley is back in The Mom's capable hands.
We guess that The Reufus needs just a wee bit more training.
Can't wait to hear the further adventures of the Wright clan.

Sounds like a great vacation. They are boring when nothing happens. Loved the picture of you and the Reuf with the Luke's banner. Glad you had such a good time, and glad the trolley is returned to you.

My goodness the Bleu, that little brofur of yours sure can get into a lot of mischief even when he's in the back of a car! Your the mom is a furry patient woman with many gentle virtues and just the 'right' the mom for young the Reufus.

We are happy to hear that the wayward wanderers have made it home and are safe and sound. Can't wait for the next installment.

We bet that the Luke was sitting on a fluffy cloud in Heaven giggling and wriggling his tail when he viewed all of the Reufus' antics - silly boy.

Oh, that Reuf is a character and a half! We love reading about his antics, and are glad he's not here with us full time! Tee hee!

Oh what fun you had the Bleu and to tell you I sure needed a good laugh and smile ~ I love you the Bleu for your blog... The Lynn

Charlie said...

Wow - sounds like the Reuf needs a "!" in his name, too!
- Charlie!

Does the trolley ever make it to Maine? I'd love to meet you and the Reuf. We're going to be moving to a place on the lake very soon and I'd love to have you join me for a swim.

I am so glad you had a great time--Sometimes those memories can be bittersweet! But it does sound like a good time together, and Reuf sounds like one busy boy!

PS: My word verification is 'rambuc' is that another name for Reuf or rambunctious? :-)))

Oh, Bleu- this sounds like this was a wonderful trip - it sure has a great start to it. Can't wait to hear more. Reuf sounds like a typical young pup.

Our dear The Bleu, you sound like you and everyone had a great trip!! Exciting for sure!! We know The Luke was looking down on all of you and having a great time watching you and shaking his paw at The Reufus!! The Reufus sounds like Holly was when she was young...full of energy and always getting into a bit of trouble but having fun!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

I just love camp stories! Just keep repeating, "Reuf is new to this...he will calm down SOMEDAY..." and try to have a great time.
