First Bugout at the Park


These are the adventures I have with my 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan SE. The events are real, but I may have changed names of people involved and left out some identifying details.

First Bugout at the Park - May 15, 2017

They were painting in the vacant apartment under mine and stinking up the place. So I packed a picnic lunch, and some coloring stuff and headed out to a park in my town.

At first, I was going to leave the hatch open but noticed the hatch and dome lights stood on and weren't turning off automatically (after I got home I found that one can turn them off via the dimmer switch on the dash). So I closed the hatch, opened the back wing windows and the front windows a little and it was relatively comfortable in there. It wasn't cold outside, but slightly on the cool side. Very pleasant day!

I had my lunch, did a little work in the coloring book. It's Secret Garden by Johanna Basford. Then I just reclined against some cushions I have in the back and rested. I keep the 3rd row seats down to give me room for bugging out if I need to. I have a couple bins and some bugout provisions, just in case.

I was about to leave when I saw two more identical looking silver Dodge Grand Caravans arrive and park in the area by the tennis courts. Then as I was leaving a third Dodge Grand Caravan arrives, this one being a darker grey color. They are everywhere! :D
