Temperature 79 Degrees, Abundant Sunshine, Clear Blue Sky
On The Move Again
It’s been wonderful just sitting and relaxing in a beautiful county park. What a wonderful and delightful place this RV park has been. But the time has come to pack up and get on the move again.
Today’s drive time would be only about 3 hours so we were in no rush to leave this morning. We had some coffee and bagels and just sat back and relaxed. Still in all we were on the road by 9:30 am.
The road was in decent condition with some construction here and there. The traffic was light and we only had a few so-called towns to go through. Some were what I would call genuine towns, others were, how can I put it, blink and you missed the two barns, one house and a garage that was falling down. But boy oh boy you best get on the brakes when the speed limit went from 65 mph to 25 mph in less than the blink of an eye.
So we motored along without incident and in no time at all we were at
our new home for the next week where we were greeted by the campground mascot. Sorry, but I just can’t figure out what type of dog this is!
Ms. Barbara went into the office to register and find out what site we had been assigned to.
Here we are, home sweet home for the next 6 nights. We were originally going to stay 7 nights but I have a medical appointment that I need to get to so we’ll be on the move a day early. The site is hard packed dirt and not even close to level. Not to mention that the water spigot for our site is off to the right in the above picture about 10 feet away. I was hoping for something better but I’m beginning to learn that really decent RV parks in this region are few and far between. I will say, though, this park is a work in progress. The electrical grid was just recently updated throughout the whole park. They are putting numerous new sites in the back. Then they’ll start working on redoing the sites in the front, one of which we are in.
Yes, that’s Albert out in the front of our site doing his thing. He immediately locked on to all 3 satellites. A quick call to give DISH our new address and zip code and we were in business. Sometime along the way Albert will be going to the roof. They make a roof mount that gives one the best of both worlds. Once it is in place you can lock the satellite antenna in place on the roof. However, you also have the option of unlocking it and bringing it down just in case you end up in a site were you can’t get a clear view of the southern sky. Once down it again becomes a portable antenna and you can move it where you want. Neat.
So that is where we are at on The Road of Retirement. We’re living large and enjoying life to the fullest. God has blessed us beyond measure and we’re so grateful for the many blessings we enjoy.
Thanks again for spending some time with us. It’s always great to be able to share our story with family and friends. Comments? Feel free to share them with me. And always remember, cherish every moment of every day that God gives you and live those moments to the fullest.
Our continuing mission remains the same: 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.

Sounds like a good day. Safe travels, a good enough site, and more adventures to come. You’re there 6 days, and I look forward to what you’ll be seeing and doing while there. Have fun!
Thanks. We’re going sightseeing in a day or two. Looking forward to it.
