One of our favorite things

Last night there was a beautiful sunset. The photo above doesn’t do it justice, but it gives some idea of what we were enjoying. It was just after taking this photo that one of our favorite things happened. Some new neighbors had pulled into the RV park where we are staying, and they were out…

Our water setup

It is amazing what you think about while you are doing mundane chores. Case in point; as I was dumping the tanks today, standing by Charlie, letting the black tank flush, I thought it would be a good idea to share with anyone interested how we have our water set up. There is any number…

”What about our pictures?”

I got bitten by the shutterbug at an early age. When I turned seven, my parents gave me a Kodak Instamatic camera for my birthday. I did not have the camera long before they took it back from me again. I took pictures of everything, and getting a roll of film developed back then was…

Whew! (Arizona to Colorado)

  It has been a while since I last posted here. That is not because I haven’t had anything to say, but more because we have been busy. When last I wrote, we were crossing the two-month mark and were still in Mesa Arizona at the Mesa Regal RV Resort. We were there for a…

Giddy

That is how we feel right now. The house is gone, we have everything (and more as it turns out) that we need with us in Charlie, and since Saturday, March 31 we have been at a beautiful RV “resort” in Mesa Arizona. We are staying here the month of April visiting my brother and…

Downsizing and shucking “stuff”

This past weekend we took the final step in getting rid of most of our “stuff” and leaning down to being fully self-contained in Charlie, our RV. It has been a process of months and has required quite a bit of attitude adjustment. However, after losing all four of our parents in the space of…

One month in…

Today is our one month anniversary living in Charlie. We have not gotten on the road yet. Charlie’s travels so far have been from Montgomery Alabama, where we picked him up, to Edmond Oklahoma. That said a month is a month, and we have learned some lessons and had some surprises. As such, I thought…

Tom Sawyer Mississippi River Park

As I ended in a previous post, we were just making our roundabout way to Tom Sawyer’s Mississippi River Park. Once we got back on the right road, things were much better; however, despite the signs telling us we were on the right path, we still questioned ourselves and each other if we were or…

A philosophical interlude

I know there is nothing new here, Solomon said there was nothing new under the sun, so there is no reason to think this will be. I also know that all this has been said before, and better, by people throughout time. Still, as Zig Ziglar once said and I often quote, “We do not…
