First Big Adventure

Just back from our first Big Adventure in Belinda (B+ rv). Down to St George Sunday - to surprise brother and sister-in-law, who believed us when we said we'd be there on Monday - oops! Found a nice campground called (not too inventively) St George Campground, tv AND wifi, nice and clean, very friendly managers. Spent Monday with Alvin and Bev, back to SGCG for Monday night, then up to Salina, on the way we stopped off at the Fremont Indian State Park, the museum is amazing, staff very friendly, and superb exhibits - lots of rock painting, petroglyphs etc (bout the middle of Utah, St George is at the bottom - hot HOT HOT - and stayed Tuesday night at the Butch Cassidy Campground (who could resist?). Not so great, no tv - couldn't get our antenna to pick up their signal, and no wifi - my computer wouldn't recognise their network - however, they did have tame bunnies and lots of chickens running all over plus an aviary with cute birds. Met a very nice couple from British Columbia, Jeff and Janet. We had a good dinner, couple of drinks and I read a good book! Then out for breakfast this morning, and up to Gunnison for an interview. That went well, but they are interviewing all 12 candidates, so we are not counting any chickens. Another interview next Wed. for a position at Draper, so who knows? We'll see. We both liked Gunnison and Salina, small towns, cozy, and everyone who knows me knows that I have always wanted to live in Smalltown, USA, where everyone knows you, and you can go out for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and know the names of everyone in the cafe! Still NOT counting chickens, I promise! Brodie (chihuahua pom cross) came with us, and loved all the new places to smell and pee on, but did NOT like the driving, spent every trip gazing up at one of our faces, silently pleading "make this stop - PLEASE!" Was he glad to get home? Well - what do you think!

Sounds like you had fun. How long of a period did all this happen in?

We like the little towns along I-15 in Utah, some nice homey places and lots of friendly people. But it's not really Hot, come down to Las Vegas and try the Valley of Fire...

Our two 4 legged kids love traveling. We raised them from pups in our MH traveling. I will say our two former kids (Mom & Dad) took awhile, they were grown when we rescued them and Mom would get car sick a lot. But they soon adapted because they loved the destinations and being with us.

Any future plans for a long trip or two?

Glad you had fun. You did a good job too. If your at a site where the TV won't work read a book. I like the fact that you were able to adapt and not, instead, spend the whole time complaining. Traveling should be fun, if your not having fun, then that's up to you and it sounds like you had fun. Good Job.

Best of luck with the results of your interview. If it doesn't pan out come on down to another St George - island, on the Florida gulf coast. If you like little towns you'd be right home in Carrabelle. Wouldn't even have to decide which restaurant to eat breakfast in, only one of the two serves breakfast.
