Rainy Day blues

Jim looking out of the back window of Betty Deux at Limon, Colorado KOA.

I have decided to change my format of my blogs. Keeping it simple. One photo, a tid-bit of information and a personal connection. Nothing more, nothing less. Willie Nelson sings that “If you don’t like this rainy weather you better pack your bags and move.” The wind howls and screams past our little home, rocking… Continue reading Rainy Day blues

Plan, Prep, (pray)

We have planned. We have prepped. We now pray. And this being spring and summer of 2020 we do a lot of praying. It’s inevitable. Something will happen, it’s going to and nothing you do stops it. When the Coronovirus hit we prayed majorally. We prayed, like everyone else, for it to be some big… Continue reading Plan, Prep, (pray)

PLAN (PREP) PRAY

For once, Jim feels the truck and camper is completely ready. He worked tirelessly over the past several months making many alterations and upgrades. He’s excited about our new cell phone booster. Boy will be doing online classes again this year, so he will need the extra connectivity. In addition to the booster,, he also… Continue reading PLAN (PREP) PRAY

(Plan) Prep Pray

Planning for a normal camping trip can be daunting. Planning for a two month adventure is beyond intimidating. So many things to do. Months before a trip, Capt’n Jim will haul out the navigational charts (Google Earth and Allstays) and plan our destination. This takes hours and days, months even, of careful contemplation. Virtual field… Continue reading (Plan) Prep Pray

Wanderlust

Wanderlust settles in me like a too tight favorite jacket.  I’m excited about wearing it, but it pinches all the same.  School wraps up this week and the countdown begins.  With that comes intense anxiety.   Can I get everything done in time?  What will I forget?  I’m adding to and amending my packing list constantly. … Continue reading Wanderlust

Blowing Rock

About 10 miles from Julian Price lies a quaint town called Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  This town, according to Captain Jim, was designed, created and populated to attract women.  From it’s flower gardened main street to it’s many chic stores it does seem he has a point.  We chose a perfectly comfortable, overcast day to… Continue reading Blowing Rock

Singing Hills Campground Cave City 6-17-18

We used Passport America to find a campground near Mammoth Caves in Cave City, Ky.  Singing Hills Campground http://www.singinghillsrvpark.com/  was fairly nice campground very near the many touristy attractions in the area.  We were surprised at how many there were.  However, we were there for the caves! Singing Hills is run by a very nice couple. … Continue reading Singing Hills Campground Cave City 6-17-18

Little River Campground

Just outside of Ft. Payne, Alabama lies a quiet and most pleasing campground.  We found Little River Canyon Campground on the Passport America app.  We had driven quite a ways and was ready for a break. The campground wasn’t hard to find and was fairly close to Ft. Payne, which made day trips to town… Continue reading Little River Campground

Cherokee Rock

After a great fail trying to get to Chief Ladiga campground Captain Jim used freecampsites.net and found Cherokee Rock Campgrounds (Alabama.)  It wasn’t far from where we were and had promising reviews.  Hmmm? Although we did not encounter anymore Bridge Out signs we did have to endure a quite steep, narrow entrance road to the… Continue reading Cherokee Rock

Lake Pines R.V. And campground

June 7, 2018 Our stop in Midland, Georgia was precipitated by the use of Passport America. We had a mostly pleasant drive (except Columbus) through quiet State highways. We decided to stop at Lake Pines RV and Campground for some much-needed rest. The campground overall is very pleasant. It is fairly clean, however the sites… Continue reading Lake Pines R.V.
