I do plan on crossing ahead of Dave and Richard just to be sure they don't sabotage me!


Challenge accepted, a good race to the border, like the outlaws chased by the law, in the old days...

Do we get a "senior citizen" head start???

Our Rainbow Ride is about to begin...

...more or less...

The house is sold, closing was Friday. We have to be out by the 26th. Most of the packing is done, now transferring stuff into the MH. Drawback is we have to stay somewhere around here until the middle of October for family birthdays (plus I'm still w*rking to build up some travel money, house sale proceeds going to pay off the MH and some other bills). So, eventually we'll be on our way. Plan to head towards Arizona this winter, will be too late for the Texas GC unfortunately.

If I sound tired, we had the GK's over this afternoon, 5 & 7 years old and both very energetic, they just HAD to spend time in the MH.

Keep in touch on your AZ plans. We and other mutants will be somewhere down there!

Today's ride was a quick exploration of taking Route 3 until it I needed to turn around Here's a picture of the Seawater Bay, one of only a few US fjords - glacially carved valleys drowned by the sea (so said the placard describing it). Above that sailboat is Acadia Mountain. That area is really beautiful to ride through.

I could use some dry...
We're 1.5 hours north of Springfield - where Jackie post on FB - about the State Fair RV Park being flooded. Sad. We didn't flood, but it was wet. Lucky for us - and Ommms for all in Louisiana - especially RVers.

Currently it's 70 degrees here - the dew point is 70 and it's 95% humidity. It's like a sauna.

They got to watch me and the birds eat and then we talked and talked and talked while the birds sat inside watching TV. It was dark so sorry, no pics and we were in the screen house so no fire either. It was nice to hear about all the adventures Steve and Mary Ann have taken over the years. Looking forwards to many of those trips myself!

No idea. Haven't even reached Timberlands yet! We are told by reputable natives that we have a couple of nifty high bridges to cross on Hwy 3 going east from here.

Had my first local ersters on 1/2 shell this afternoon (can u say om-nom?), a short walk on a long granite breakwater (only 1 1/2 mi. out of a possible 2), and lots of lovely Maine scenery.

Our hostess buys groceries here, but also bought her wedding gown at the same store 40+ years ago...for $75.

On the way home, we spotted this dog on a hog ... except it wasn't a hog. I dunno. The dog was on a leash, but .... ?

Here we come
Driving down the street
Looking for other mutants
It's the fun we seek

Ha ha were the mutants
People say we mutant around
But we're to busy laughing
And oftentimes clowning around!


Little known fact that I just made up was that The Monkeys were first formed as a band called The Mutants!

Sue I may have to look into that store. Guns, Beer and Wedding gowns. That looks like a perfect franchise opportunity that might do well back in Arkansas!

Just thought I would beat Wayne to the punchline.
