Ok we have internet tonight. We are in Junction, Texas for the night. staying at the KOA, very nice park right on the North Llano River. They have good wi-fi and 52 cable tv channels. To catch up we survived the traffic through El Paso yesterday and made it to Van Horn, TX. Stayed at Eagles nest RV Park. nice park but no wi-fi that worked. Cable tv was 3 channels. And Verizon broadband did not work there.
We are off tomorrow for Matagorda TX. Visit some friends we made in Florida in 2002.

Weather is supposed to be good for the next several days, I am feeling half way decent, still have a touch of something. If it is nice in the morning we will hook up and head East. Don’t know how far we will get, but we are on no time agenda so will just take it a day at a time.

Our only time agenda right now is we need to be in Washington in June, fly to Alaska for a week or two then back to Washington. Will be at Dosewallips State park on the 1st of July for a month. From there we will be at Flaming Geyser day use area for the month of August, then to Fort Flagler for the month of Sept.

We are looking forward to seeing friends in Texas in a few days, then on to Louisiana for the balance of the winter.

I will update if I can somewhere in Texas. If you are not on Twitter, sign on and follow us there hopefully daily.

Happy 65th Anniversary MOM & DAD

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Yesterday I decided to get out and do something. I went to Fort Bowie (Boo-ee). The first picture here says it is a leisurely 1 1/2 mile hike to the old Fort. What they forgot to mention was it was all uphill. I finally made it up there and it was worth the hike. Lots of history here. This was Apache country and they did not take kindly to intruders. If any of you get to this area and feel like a little exercise this is a great place to visit. The Fort was established to protect the Apache spring. A reliable source of water for the Butterfield Stagecoach and travelers heading west. This route was chosen because of the water supply in the middle of the desert. If anyone wants more info on this Fort go to,
Until next time God Bless you all.

While visiting some friends the other day the subject of pets came up. We came to the conclusion that yes they are a pain in the rear at times, BUT they are way to much company and entertainment to not be without one. This is a picture of the ruler of the house, or in our case the 5th wheel trailer. We have 2 cats and both of them are very good travelers.

We finally made it out of RV City. Furnace works better than when it was new, brakes and wheel bearings done, Should be good to go now. Other than our pocketbooks. Trip to RV City was another $600.00. So we will be waiting until after Christmas before we head East.

Here is a more recent Picture, taken on Flathead Lake, MT

This will be night #2 that we are spending at RV City. They did get the furnace fixed today. I had them do the wheel bearings, well now there is a story. The hubs were rusted on bad, finally have 2 hubs pulled, brakes are ok. They had to modify a hub puller to get the hubs off.

Hopefully we will be back to Willcox sometime tomorrow. We spent the day visiting Jim & Sharon, a couple we have met through Workamper news forum. Had a great day visiting with them.

Till next time God Bless everyone.

New Day and new challenges. Weather has been bad, bad, bad. Wind rain and snow just a little higher than us. We have decided to stay holed up for a day or two and hope this storm passes. Then we will take trailer to RV City for furnace repair. This puts a kink in our travel plans, will see what the next several days bring.

Truck is out of the hospital, new glow plugs on one side. We have an appointment tomorrow morning for the trailer in Huachuca City at RV City for the furnace. Life goes on.
"Life happens. Make the most of each day, even if it’s not at all the day you had planned."
This is a quote I got from High Plains Camping blog. I am trying to make the best of each day.

Just to make someones day here is a pic on Vicki and Myself a few years ago. Yea life is fun.

We were planning on leaving in the morning to head East. Not gonna happen for a few days, STUFF HAPPENS, truck in the hospital again, furnace in trailer died (always when it gets down to 19 degrees at night) So need to get STUFF fixed before we head out.
