After a quick run to the post office in Gillette yesterday we returned to the Cam-Plex, hooked our Ford Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and made ready to get out of Dodge… err Gillette. But first we had to have the requisite goodbye hugs from Greg and Jan, who were also hitting the […]

Not Exactly A Volcano

As always seems to happen the night before we start out on a trip, Terry and I didn’t sleep well, getting about four hours at best. We’d have loved to roll over and gone back to sleep when morning came, but we had to get a move on. We got the water and electric connections […]

Yeah, and some days you’re the bug. Yesterday it was our turn to be the bug. It happens to all of us once in a while. We were up bright and early, because we were moving from Three Flags in Wildwood to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, about 50 miles away and we wanted to […]

Friday The 13th

I’m not normally a superstitious man. Black cats crossing my path don’t bother me, I don’t carry a four-leaf clover or a rabbit’s foot for good luck, and I’d much rather walk under a ladder than climb the darned thing. But all that being said, yesterday was definitely Friday the 13th. We left Elkhart Campground […]

A Wasted Trip

Since we only had a short distance to go yesterday, we were in no hurry to get on the road. But we kept hearing a strange noise that piqued our curiosity, so we got up to check it out and found a huge Great Lakes freighter docked right across from the Fisherman’s Landing Campground. The […]

Our Trip Is Over!

Because we wanted to be on the road fairly early yesterday morning, the night before we hooked up the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar, and Terry put things away inside the motorhome so that all we would have to do was unhook our campground utilities, pull in our slide rooms and retract our […]

Yesterday was a slow day here at the Blue Ox factory campground in Pender, Nebraska. But I don’t know if they have a lot of busy days in Pender. The folks we have met here in town same to move at a more laid-back pace, which is just fine with us. We were awakened early […]

A Quiet Day At Home

Yesterday we had a quiet day at home, one of those relaxing days when we didn’t do anything that we didn’t feel like doing. No phone calls, no visitors, just us. We need days like that once in a while, and lately they’ve been hard to come by. I spent most of the day writing, […]

Ron and Brenda Speidel came by to see us off yesterday morning on their way down to South Padre Island for the Kite Festival. Man, I wish we could’ve hung around to see that, but we had places to be and it just wasn’t going to happen this year. But the great news is, we […]

A Foggy Day On I-10

It rained again Saturday night and it was still raining when we got up at 7:30 yesterday morning. Why must I keep getting up so early if it’s too ugly to do anything? What’s up with that? Fortunately, by 9 a.m. the rain had stopped and all we had was a heavy overcast. We took […]
