It’s about time I start updating our blog.

Working on a site for someone else has made me realize that I need to work on my own site! We are finishing our 4th year traveling in our RV full time. We have been from Houston to Maine to the West Coast and down to the Keyes several times now. It never gets old. There is so much for us to see in this beautiful country of ours. We got a late start this year not leaving Houston until May but have been as far North as Petoskey, Michigan, went to the Outer Banks and now we are in the Keyes for 2 weeks. We’ll be at the last NASCAR race in Homestead Miami next week and look forward to our nephew joining us. From there we go to Tampa for Thanksgiving with my side of the family. We’ll be heading back to Houston to spend December/Christmas with the kids and grandkids. A lot of exciting things are happening on our RV world that I am working on and will be posting them for our RV friends soon: BIG diesel fuel savings and cutting edge fire suppression equipment so stay tuned for those announcements.

In the meantime, this is my happy place. Love the Keyes!

A Day in California – Old Hippies Still Exist!!

20Aug2017

So I guess if I am going to have a blog site then I need to start adding stuff to it. Been too content just to travel around since retirement that I have only posted on Face Book. It’s easier then bringing out the laptop plus I can type on my phone while traveling down the road. Not as easy with a laptop.

So….I’ll be catching up on posts slowly but surely. They may not be in date order right now but I’ll post current locations and past so eventually I’ll get caught up.

So we’re in California. I should say Crazy California. Have to pay for plastic bags at Walmart or bring your own. Who knew? We bought a bag for 10 cents. Couldn’t find a car wash anywhere. All we’re closed. Maybe because of a water shortage? Everything is very dry except the beautiful wineries. Passed a beautiful field of sunflowers though. Go to town to get my nails done and meet the sweetest old lady. Ok so she’s probably only 10 yrs older than me but still. She starts sharing the various places to go to around here and where to eat. Gave us the name of several good places to eat. She’s excited about our lifestyle and asks a bunch of questions and tells us a little about herself. Sweet little old lady. Ok. Old might not be the proper way to describe someone just 10 yrs older than me but I’m not ready to admit I’m old yet! Then she starts telling us about a place close by that has hot springs you can soak in and it’s very tranquil and beautiful and oh by the way – IT’S CLOTHING OPTIONAL!!! What???

Maybe she wasn’t as old as she appeared. Maybe she’s just spent too much time in the sun without her clothes! Gotta love those old Cali Hippies!! Enjoy the sunflowers!
