Home Is Where We Park It:  Blackwater River State Park

Date:  May 6, 2019


Short, sweet and to the point – nothing shaking today.  Since we knew we would be running the roads the next several days we figured we had better take care of our housekeeping chores today.

Milton and was able to get caught up on our wash.  Next park we know we’ll have washers and dryers available to us so it will be a whole lot easier.  If, and this is a big if, if we ever get another rig I sure would like to have a washer and dryer on board.

I on the other hand stayed home and put a fresh coat of wax on the front of Graybeard.

Hopefully, this will make it easier to get the multitude of bugs off that like to commit suicide on the front end.  I have never had it this bad in the past.  Drive down the road even a mile and the front end becomes a mess.

I also spent some more time sorting and cataloging all our pictures from last year.  It’s going to take a lot more time before it’s all done.  Learning from last year I now have a much better system in place this year.  What’s the old saying, Live and learn.

One more picture I just have to share with you.  Dig this Ford Fiesta brought to you by Hillbilly Customs!  Not my cup of tea but it sure is different.


That’s it for our journey today  down The Road of Retirement.  Tomorrow we start running the roads again.  Thanks again for hanging in there with us.  Till tomorrow, have a good night.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

See you on down the road
