We’ve just enjoyed a great time at home, getting ourselves and possessions tuned up, as well as spent time with family and friends. Normal life experiences, compressed. I really enjoyed this time off writing the blog and even did some watercolor painting.
We attended a couple Elser reunions and I went to my high school and grade school reunions. We camped at Leavenworth for about a week and a couple times with our Panhandle Gem (FMCA) camping group. John installed our new solar panel, then we had Tru-Line RV run the wires inside Miss Journey. Our CB antenna on the roof had been knocked down, so they took it off and sealed that spot. They lowered the compartment doors that are rubbing against the slide, but the doors still rub. Oh well, they tried.
Some photos from our summer at home: Dorothy is 92 now, surrounded by her children. Joe is at the top right, sharing Pokeman ideas with his cousins at the Elser Reunion. Below that is Justin with their new dog, Maggie.
We’re beginning our sojourn south with plans to visit several National Parks; Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Carlsbad Caverns, and Guadalupe. If all goes well we should be in Mesa, AZ by the end of October, where we’ll stay for a couple months. Today’s trip was all on I-90E, so easy except that we did cross the Rocky Mountains. Mostly saw trees and rain. Naturally we had to drive in rain the first time out since we’d washed and waxed our rig and car! If you hover over image, caption should appear.
Speaking of the Silver Dollar Bar, it’s free RV Parking, several sites with 30 amp power. They also have water at one spot if you need to take some one. They have a great “home food” cafe here as well. Below are photos from the Bar.
