More spiders

I seem to be a magnet for these things and the mother of all desert spiders was IN THE VAN. I was snuggling up in my sleeping bag for the night when I looked up and saw it, on the inside wall of the Chubby! This thing was like 5 inches end to end, and just plain nasty! We had to make a game plan, because he was close to a big opening in the frame of the car so if he went in there it would be impossible to get out, and we would be sleeping in the tent… for the rest of the trip as far as I was concerned. Blaine grabbed a bucket and put it beneath it and then took a rag and smashed it to oblivion, or so he thought... Next, it falls into the bucket, and then started climbing out super fast. Blaine quickly grabbed the bucket and threw it outside to find that thing alive and well. Needless to say he finished it off and I took clothes, TP and anything else I could find to plug up ALL the wholes in the van.
