9 Jan 2012 My Financial Advisor tells me I can no longer afford the luxury of a separate blog for each year... Typepad is terrific! But in order to keep separate year blogs, I've had to pay for the high priced spread. And so I'm moving to WordPress - the... Continue reading

10 Nov 2011 Today is the last leg of our journey to the sun and sand and snowbirds. Yuma tonight! I even remembered to call ahead and get the water and electrics turned on... some years we forgot that and had to dry camp a day or two. We had... Continue reading

7 Oct 2011, Caldwell, Idaho The Carpenters' song ~ Talkin' to myself and feeling old. Sometimes I'd like to quit; Nothing ever seems to fit; Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown; Rainy days and Mondays always get me down. Not that I wish to date myself or anything, but... Continue reading

4 Oct 2011 It's October already and we're still in Caldwell.. and will be for a while more. We closed on the house. We are Happy Home Owners yet again. Sigh. (This was a Good Sigh!) But the last owners are still in it, which cramps my style a bit.... Continue reading

22 Sep 2011 I know, long-time, full-time RVers shudder at the thought. But it was time! In some people's minds... And we haven't really been full-timing the past few years... And this summer was long and difficult... And I have the nesting instinct running full steam ahead... So, we finally... Continue reading

11 Sep 2011 Okay, so I haven't been very good at posting lately. New intentions are in order... We've been back in the Boise area since the end of last month. The beautiful Seattle weather continued on and we've been basking in it here. Lovely!!! We're staying in Caldwell at... Continue reading

18 Aug 2011 Shoreline - with a name like that, we should be basking in the sun beside the rolling waves, right? Well, not exactly. We are inland a ways and even though we love the shore here, it's not the warm, sandy Atlantic Ocean kind of shore. It's the... Continue reading

4 Aug 2011 We're sitting in the Elk's Lodge RV park near Port Townsend, Washington. What a nice place to be! I just cleaned out a handful of credit card receipts from my purse, and laughed. Not in any particular order: - Restaurant in Eugene, Oregon - KOA in Bellefonte,... Continue reading

2 Jul 2011 We are happily esconsced in the Boise-Meridian RV park for the entire month of July... unless we decide to leave early, of course. It's the same place we often stay and is full of all the standard amenities - pool, laundry, library, lounge, patches of grass, paved... Continue reading

29 June 2011 Yellowstone Park, Wyoming/Montana/Idaho... We drove through Yellowstone Park today - almost without stopping and without Passing Go. I felt guilty! But it was a blustery windy day and it was not conducive to touristing. We just kept on truckin'. We did admire the growth of young trees,... Continue reading

26 Jun 2011 Custer, SD We were here once, many many moons ago - it must have been in 1999 because my digital photo library begins in 2000 and doesn't show it. On that trip we drove in from Devil's Tower on the west and left through the Custer State... Continue reading

23 June 2011 We finally pulled up roots and left Minnesota. It was a good visit - thanks Nancy and Don! The extra day we stayed in order to avoid bad weather didn't work - we had torrents of rain all the way down Hwy 169/60 clear to I-90 heading... Continue reading

22 Jun 2011 This is unfair! I started an entry. I saved the entry as a draft. So where is it???? I should have known, when it wouldn't let me put in photos... Back to the drawing board. We left Indiana. We left Illinois. We passed Dubuque with scarcely a... Continue reading

11 Jun 2011 Another huge gap in the calendar. FaceBook takes up too much of my brain energy and I forget to keep my journal going. [Note: and after saying that, I only half-finished this entry, saved it as a draft and forgot about it... Well, it's being published as... Continue reading

1 Jun 2011 We finally pulled up stakes and headed down the hill, over the river, through the woods, and across the vales. For states that have incredibly large populations, Pennsylvania and New York have incredibly amazing thousands of acres of green trees, green grass, rivers and little streams -... Continue reading

25 May... or so... 2011 I've neglected my journal. Sorry. We remained camp high atop "Mt. Florida" - hidden from the world, enjoying the solitude. We had a neighbor or two, but no one that disturbed the silence much. We enjoyed this. We did venture out a time or two.... Continue reading

22 May 2011 Neither of us have visited West Point before. We drove by many years ago, but didn't stop... we tend to do that occasionally - not knowing how long it will take us to get back into the neighborhood. This time at least we have a great excuse!... Continue reading

19 May 2011 Let's see... our last stop was New Market, Virginia. On to Pennsylvania and the Big Daddy of the Battles - Gettysburg. Our campground (Gettysburg Campground) was a good one, i.e., we got both TV and Internet satellite reception, even though we were in the trees. There was... Continue reading

15 May 2011... or so.... Luray, Virginia. What gorgeous green countryside this is! And our campground is superb! The nicest on the whole trip. It's spread out for many acres; has a huge "green" in the center with a nice little clubhouse; the owners are friendly and efficient, and the... Continue reading

12 May 2011 - or so... Fredericksburg is another area we have visited before and enjoyed, but we forced ourselves to go out and enjoy even more... and again... This particular area saw the death or wounding of over 100,000 men during the Civil War. Some places appear to 'brag'... Continue reading

10 May 2011 Petersburg We spent a couple of days here many years ago, walked many of the paths and admired the monuments. We learned a lot about the War of Northern Agression, as well as the Rebellion of the States. We also visited it again with Todd & Lisa... Continue reading
