üCamp19 Leftovers Day


It’s an annual üCamp tradition that at least a few of us linger as the campground empties. It’s a flurry of last minute sharing of contacts, making of moochdocking plans, and promises to see each other next year if not before. This year the two of us had the complication of needing to move our T@B to higher ground. Thank you, Nate, for bringing your personal John Deere tractor to Winklepleck and extricating so many, including us! Five of us headed into town for lunch at Honey Bee Cafe and to get some delicacies at Swiss Village Bulk Foods. Back at Winklepleck things had quieted down and we all moved our chairs to the basketball court for casual conversation. Ultimately rain chased us under the pavilion. Like last year we shared snacks and drinks but unlike last year we didn’t ever get around to ordering pizza. Maybe next year we’ll have better weather, more of the regular Leftovers will linger, we’ll get pizza, and have a campfire but even without the usual trappings, we all enjoyed relaxing in the afterglow of another great teardrop gathering.
