Where is my Summer going

Here it is only July 10 but with my 92 year old Mother-in-law in the hospital and my Dr. appointments for annual check-up and eyes, both our family get together, I'm looking at mid August before the wife and I will be able to take the Ladybug out for a few weeks......but already got 2 trips in the planning stage One to upstate Vermont and the other to Central New York.
Hope to see you on the trails

I know what you mean. I have actually already spent 23 nights since May 15 in the trailer, but now I have nothing planned until the end of August. July and August are crabbing months so I don't usually plan weekend trips then (pots can be in the water Thurs-Mon). July and August are also usually visitor months for me. Add two repairs needed at home that I still haven't found someone to do. I do plan to make a quick trip or two but probably not until August.

Then head down to Maryland to a long-lost co-worker of my wifes' for a week then back home....this trip may take place in September when friends from here start to mosey back to their Florida home with their trailer.
Lot's of iffffssss right now.
Report good after wife saw her mom today so maybe a few nights at the local National Park campground can be attained.

Life gets inthe way...

This is getting to be a familiar refrain for a lot of us. Now that I seem to have extinguished the little fires in my life now my province is on fire. I'm not going to add to the chaos out there so maybe I'll just stay in the BF while it's parked in the driveway! Good time to practice with my new 'Camper Leveler . Hey it's a 1st world problem.
Keep smiling.

We are heading to Vancouver Island,BC in the next couple of weeks finally, but have to dodge the wildfires. Lots of road closures and it's taken us two years to finally get back on the road to the west. Sigh !!

Nearly mid-June. We have nothing planned with Peanut until September. Then the Lynden Mt. Baker Vintage Trailer Rally first part of the month, and Dash Point State Park 25 miles south of Seattle September 20-24 for the Seattle Area Gathering.


Good thread, gets me thinking about maybe including another trip this year, possibly following the SAG. .


BEST to all

A benefit of being a fulltimer

A benefit of being a full timer is that the family does not expect you to be present for birthdays, anniversaries, family get togethers. In the beginning I think they found our travel choice strange. Now the pictures we feedback of places, the look on our faces, and our improved health, say something about our choice.

We are careful to not let the requirements of our former life get in the way of our travels. Now we choose carefully where we want to be rather than just falling in line.

"You lost a month. Mid-July!" --Bobbie Mayer


Oh, Snap! Wow, it IS mid-July! Riiiiiiight! That's why the neighbors set off all those explosions the other night, eh?


I'd better pull it together!


Thanks, Bobbie!

Mid Summer's savings time--


72 degrees F today, a fine breeze, enough sun to be perfect but not so much as to burn away all happiness...I could use time like this saved! Wish I had a barrel full of it! Wish I could predict it (imagine being able to forecast the weather) and use it when I was planning camping trips!
