It is always nice to come across new RV folks just starting out because it brings back great feelings of excitement & anticipation of our own early RV days. Check out Janie & John's FLAMINGO ON A STICK .
Looking back I would say those early days of shopping for an RV both online & on RV lots were some of the most exciting new days we have had as RV'ers. Comparing notes with other RV folks & faithfully reading everything we could find in the RV NET FORUM. Travel trailers, Class C's, truck campers, 5th wheels, Class B's & Motorhomes. So much to choose from & so many questions to be asked & answered. So many decisions to make. Throw in a healthy serving of tension, stress, plus anxiety, and you have a really great mix of genuine apprehensive excitement. It's a unique kind of excitement & I remember that stomach turning stuff well. We didn't always make the right decisions & I'm sure we probably have a few more wrong decisions ahead of us but we have managed to get ourselves on the road every winter for the last 5 out of 6 years & with a bit of luck we'll be back on the road this coming September or October again.
Cloudy cool day so most of my time was spent inside getting my little used SMUG MUG photo account organized. A long, long, way to go but I did get a good start on it today. Have had this account for about 3 years so it's about time I used it's great photo galleries. Sure is nice sorting photos on a nice big new 20" monitor. Great colors & great detail.
MOTTY & PATTI got themselves a bigger & better truck plus a newer & smaller dog & I'm assuming RICK & RICK & PAULETTE arrived safely home today in Cowichan Bay on British Columbia's Vancouver Island. Just two more examples of excited RV folks. Different degrees of excitement maybe but excitement just the same.
I had run the generator in the motorhome a couple of days ago & after a few minutes it quit. A quick look at the gas guage in the motorhome showed the needle on a quarter tank so knew that's why the genny quit. Off to Goderich yesterday for $75 worth of gas. Yep, that was good enough to get the generator up & running again.
GAMES FOR WHEN WE ARE OLDER
1. Sag, you're It.
2 . 20 questions shouted into your good ear.
3. Kick the bucket
4. Musical recliners.
5. Simon says something incoherent.
6. Pin the Toupee on the bald guy.
And another sign of getting old is when you don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
