Bummed …

Our trip First we got a late start (Hubby was missing some meds and it didn’t get here til 10 this morning. When we finally got on the road, every thing was good, until we were 150 miles out, and the car dumped it’s oil. That was around noon. We had to wait 5 hours for the tow truck. We were lucky we didn’t blow the engine, but that killed the trip for awhile. I am sooooo bummed!



This is NOT a chore I enjoy, but it is what I am doing today. Got a couple of last minute items to take along with us. I know two dogs who are going to be VERY upset, but I do need to leave them behind this time. This is the first trip in a long time and we are actually using a utility trailer as our camper. I looks like it will be an adventure! We leave tomorrow. Hope to get a spare camera @ Walmart. If I find one I REALLY like.


I am finally staging what we are taking with. Next weekend will be a tough one since all the campgrounds near the reunion are booked! Not happy, but I am sure it won’t be so earth shattering since we have done this before. Count down 1 1/2 days to takeoff.  I will be SO happy when we are finally on the road!

Countdown to trip

Departure time is fast approaching.  I am getting the clothes and camp gear together.  There is some debate as to sleeping bags or something cooler.  Hubster is working on converting the utility trailer into a small travel trailer. He put in a wood floor, electric and screens on both back and side. We are picking up the last of the tubs and things we area bring with us and staging it to pack Sunday afternoon.  We are both stressed out, but probably for different reasons.  I think I will be glad when we pull out on Monday.


My husband is planning a trip next month. We plan on starting our trip on the 6th of Aug.  We will be visiting the Michigan area, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana and the norther Dakotas.  I’m hoping to do some antiquing and crafts along the way.  I will try to take plenty of photos and include a description of some of the places we visit.

More later …

Where can one live to be alone?

I have the travel bug again. I am looking for a piece of property near the Canadian boarder that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I don’t want to be a big city, and a small town is nice, but I want to live in the wilderness. I have been in cities, small towns and in rural areas, but they are all the same … filled with personalities who tend to drag you down. When I think I have actually found a place that is perfect, the prices skyrocket to the realm of ridiculously unattainable.  My husband is more interested in a small lot somewhere with only an acre or two. Trouble is that means we have to be in a town or somewhere where I can not have small farm animals, nor a place to hunt/fish for food should I not make it to town.

Ah well. One can always hope that they can find the ideal place in the right price, but for me, I am still looking.

What to do about something…

I guess that I was getting a little bored so I decided to pull out and revamp some of my stories. When I do finish it I will let you know about it. I will be posting on Amazon as an E-book.  I just want to do at least one book from my warped mind. <Heheheheh>

This is one of my animal stories, a mystery perhaps. We will see when I am done with it. I will post part of it when I am ready to publish so you guys can see it and decide if you want to buy or not.

Have a wonderfully spring like rest of your days!
