Cool thing: the Lamzac hangout

Have you seen this? It is called the Lamzac Hangout and it is a small, envelope-sized pouch that converts to a lounge with “a single flick of the wrist.” This would be a lot lighter and more comfortable than a lounge chair and would solve that camping problem of never having a comfortable seat for serious reading.

Just swing the lightweight bag through the air to create a full size lounge chair. When you’re done lounging easily deflate the bag and roll it up to fit the small carrying bag.

It makes a lounge for one or sofa for two.

The continuing adventures of Camper Bob and Gracie Coleman

Because we have the good fortune to have a wonderful house sitter, we were able to take the dogs camping this weekend. We like Olympia Campground because it is wooded and close to where we keep Chinook, our boat. We don’t plan dog activities as such, they just lie around, chase pinecones, beg snacks, bark at stuff, really the same things they do at home but it is more fun because they are outside. I spend most of my time inside, this trip I’ve been working on my tattoo-story that I’ll have posted soon. I took a break this morning for some exercise, left Scott and the dogs at the campsite and drove to the state Capitol to walk the trail that circles Capitol Lake. It is partly paved, partially gravelled and busy without feeling crowded. However, it was crowded enough that the only blackberries that were ripe were too far away to reach. All the easy to reach vines were picked clean. I did see lots of tiny ducklings but I am bummed that they don’t show up in the photo, sorry about that. I made an extra loop downtown to lengthen the walk a bit  and then stopped at Taco Del Mar to bring home tasty vegan burritos for lunch, yum!
