It takes a while, but eventually you get accustomed to it.

Our motor home truly has the most beautiful back yard and has the most wonderful waterfront view.

I (we) can't relate too well (or understand) our friends, relatives, and acquaintances who say "I hate to travel". I lack understanding of this attitude towards seeing the new and undiscovered.

So . . . . . . since we started we charted our adventures on a map. I've decided to share our trips with you by showing you our map. We need to "knock off" four more states to touch them all (but Hawaii) with our motor home.
Steve - 👍👍👍 is that a digital map? You two have really made the most of it! What year do you start over?

Just figgered I better check in, we been busy. And I want to say that you all have me on overload here, trying to read all about it. I have been trying but then said to myself, I better just check in, as we are well and getting set for a trip. Yup going to actually use the 5er.
Going to Rockford, gonna see my side of the family. Then come back n put the pink stuff in the lines. I am hoping we get more travel time next year.
Moving was the big mission this year, and we have had so much to do on outside while weather was good. And we got the 50 amp connect put in last month, YAY! The winter will be spent fixing the interior of the house, and then we can play and go back to travels. I hope. There is just so much more I want to do. Here. There. Everywhere. Back to my reading, and "OOOOMMMS" for all who need them!

We looked on line for this map. It's about 20+ inches high and 30+ inches wide. It is on a black foam backing. It's labeled as a "political" map.

We will attempt to fill in some of the unused areas of the map and then retire this map as a "remembrance" trophy. Maybe pay big bucks and frame it. Keep it hanging in the S & B until the kids burn it after the "final rummage sale". LOL

Chuck,

If you ever need to chase away those turkeys, I can send you Lily. There is a bachelor group that comes up to Bob's patio to eat the bird seed that the chickadees have knocked out of the bird feeder. Lily shot out of the house and chased them into the nearby trees. Then she ran from tree to tree just daring one of them to fly back down. After an hour I'd heard enough and went out to retrieve her. All 8 pounds of her quivered with excitement over the chase. I had to pull the shades down before she'd give up the whining to get back outside.

Steve, Rock Cut state park is our choice. They have elec. sites and we love the park. They accommodated us last early spring with water for our tanks even though they were turned off. And DH likes the privacy, of the sites there. No alcohol is allowed in the park.
Barb. your Lilly is a terrier, they live for the hunt and kill. Our Sadie is incorrigible in her hunting. She thinks she is going to take down a deer or squirrel or dig up a mole. But she has her eye on the blue tailed skinks here, too. She is pretty quiet in her hunting though so sometimes we have to hunt her down. And she is always getting a bath, due to her digging and underbrush hunts. She loves living here, no fences and lots of prey.

And I phoned tonight to say we wanted a spot. "We'll call you back" message ... Never happened.

What time is it out your way? I might try again yet tonight.

Papa Steve.

A political map shows states, counties, etc.... Here are our versions... The US map was given to us by my son, pricey, the lower one, the world map, i bought, mounted to foam core and framed... Then glued my magnets... I have too many magnets for our US travels, so took some old road maps, used matte medium to glue onto a metal backing from HomeDepot, and used as magnet board..... I also have 2 travel journals, one for travel, one for rv travels...
