Early Risers!!

Gooooooood MORNING iRV2'rs !!

Just wondering whether there are any other, or many other, early risers here in the iRV2 world. Ya know, those folks who wake up at...say...4:30 or 5:00 a.m., maybe quietly making a pot of coffee, stepping outside the rig, and watching the dawn???

Just now, there's a GORGEOUS red/pink light in the Eastern sky here near Tampa, and it's beautiful!!

If there are any of ya up and about.....what's the morning like where you are??? Just wondering.

Yep, I'm up at 4:30 AM Houston time every Monday - Friday due to that 4-letter word called WORK. Clear and 43 degF this morning out on the breezeway as a cold front came through yesterday. Just finished a 2nd cup of coffee and will have to start getting ready for work soon.

I'm frequently up before 5:00 AM. BTW, sunrise arrives here in New Smyrna Beach a few minutes earlier than in Tampa. Unfortunately, ours was rather bland today. Too many clouds out over the ocean down near the horizon, but it's still supposed to be a nice day.

Early riser

Been getting up at 4:30-5:00 every since I had a paper route as a teenager. Just can not get out of the habit. Make coffee, read the internet and generally be quite so the DW doesn,t wake up.
Here in Rociada, NM it is 6:00 am and still dark and the temp is 22 degs F.

The gaggle of turkeys passed thru heading to their rooost yesterday 30 min before sunset. Beautiful.. B

Yep, I'm another one of those early risers from years of working in the construction work.When camping there's nothing like lighting up a big bon fire @ 4:30-5:00 AM with a nice strong cup of coffee watching the sun rise.

Used to get up at 5-5:30 for many years for that four letter word (work), but now sleep in to 6:30-7:00. I still get to see some sunrises during parts of the year.

But our favorite sun times are the sunsets that we see all over the country. We sit there, with our favorite beverage in hand, and marvel at the beauty of the sky.

I am also an early riser. Sometime between 4 and 6 AM every morning. However, you will not see me on iRV2. From when I get up to lunch time is when I get all the chores of the day done. It's amazing how much one can complete before 10 AM. iRV2 comes later in the day or the evening.

We're usually up by 6 a.m. Pacific time. It's just that we live in Florida.

So.....when ya get up and are bumpin around in those wee early hours of the morning, do ya find yourself stuck in what ya could call a rather "fixed" routine. I can almost recite each movement, from gettin up, to makin coffee, to standing outside watching the stars give way to the dawn, etc., EVERY MORNING (less-n it's a pourin rain). I'm worrying this is an "OLD MAN" symptom....ya know, a compulsive "rut." Thing is....I enjoy it!! Oh well. Steve
