I did a podcast interview. I know.

My friends are saying yeah, we notice you can't talk on the phone to us, but you'll talk about poop with strangers. It's not something I can explain. Please forgive me.

Quacking begins at around 16:00 and just goes on until you fall asleep. I was interviewed by Kimberly and Margie from Road Rebelles Radio.

This is a magical place. In this campsite, we've seen our first:

  1. scorpion
  2. rattlesnake, and
  3. TARANTULA!
He's a baby, maybe. But, he's big and he has hair = tarantula. He was not as scary as talking on the phone.

Lousy signal tonight so I'm going to try in the morning on the podcast. Those are firsts I could do without, thank you very much.

Anna said...

How cute!

Gaelyn said...

I like your little friend.

Glad you got to give the scoop on the poop. But otherwise, sorry to say, I wasn't very impressed with your interviewers. Seems like they were unprepared. Just sayin'.

Maria Meiners said...

What did you name your new pet?

Teri said...

You are becoming famous. Guest hosting on all sorts of media. Hooray for you.

The Good Luck Duck said...

Maria, I named him Quentin. Quentin Taran-tula.

Gaelyn, he makes you want to brush his hair, doesn't he? Did you get to hear Kimber, after I signed off? I cracked up in spite of myself. Eating popcorn in her RV outside WalMart, listening to FOXNews. She didn't think boondocking sounded like much fun, though.

Thanks, Anna! Speaking of cute, I like your latest FB pic!

Sandie, don't spend a lot of bandwidth on it. You already know everything I say there - you'll just hear what a dork I am.

The Good Luck Duck said...

That was my 15 minutes, Teri. Did you hear the alarm go off? :D

TravelBug-Susan said...

Quentin Taran-tula. ROTFLMAO!!!!!

The Good Luck Duck said...

Haha! Thanks for humoring me, Susan!

Bob said...

I could do without seeing all three of those little creatures, although we did see a tarantula out on a golf course once. I mean like, really. A spider. Not some pet name for a fellow duffer. He was big and hairy. (the spider!)
Are we still going to be permitted to comment after you become famous?

Sherry said...

When I am lucky enough to be doing REAL boondocking - say doesn't Walmarting etc need some other name to distinguish it from being in beautiful places?? But I digress...When I am in the boonies I often lack signals as well as hookups how come you guys never seem to?? You are just posting and phoning and poding away there in your secluded spots in the middle of gorgeous uninhabited acres.

cute furry little guy.

Andra Watkins said...

The phone is like a tarantula.......yep, especially when it's my mother on the other end.

Judy and Emma said...

An interview about poop? Now there's something for your resume. :)

Russ Krecklow said...

Isn't technology wonderful today? You can get your big break at any time and any place! Now, get out there on U Tube with your famous sit down comedy routine...15 minutes of fame can be multiplied by millions! Can I have your autograph while you're still humble?

The Good Luck Duck said...

Russ, you can have my autograph even when I'm haughty. You're "in." "Sit down comedy" - that's hilarious! And it's just my style.

Judy, my mother would be proud. If I had the nerve to tell her.

Ha Andra! I do hate the telephone; it's a weakness.

Karen, that's what you say about the kitties. Don't you have a favorite? I won't tell the cats.

Sherry, you're right. Many boondockers refuse to call Walmarting "boondocking." Dry-camping? I think your "Walmarting" works pretty well. A confession: when we're scouting new sites, we always bring Annie's phone to see if there's at least 3G signal. Where we are it's intermittent, but it's enough to keep us happy. We once stayed three weeks without signal at home, but that made us crazy.

Bob, that's how you'll know I've made the big time. Are the Ducks famous yet? Yep, they've turned off comments. I knew them when.

Tesaje said...

Good you got to plug your poop solutions. Loved how you said you have no poop stories. Dumb of them to say you aren't real RV'ers. Really? I'd say, you have a good solution when you have no horror stories. And then, most appalling of all, she gives her poop on the fresh water story and seems to think that's funny (all because of rank stupidity) while saying they didn't even attempt to clean it up or warn that it is now contaminated. People like that are the reason some jurisdictions want to keep RV'ers out.

I can see why Annie declined. Your blog is much better (and a lot more responsible!).

The Good Luck Duck said...

Mary, I agree - I was pretty happy to have no fecal horror stories! When poop just sits around decomposing, it's not very exciting. Or fountainous. I guess that's a good example of why RV park management isn't a bed of roses. :D Thanks for saying our blog is better. I do like our blog a lot.

Contessa said...

Hmm....well I listened to it all! Best part was hearing your voice for the first time in my life! Must be nice to have so much time in one's life to do stuff like that....not! Keep up your good life.

Nuiloa said...

WD-40. Nothing kills a spider like WD-40!

Don't leave home without it!

SwankieWheels said...

Wonder if WD-40 will work on alligators?
