Hooray for RV folks!!

I am constantly amazed that the vast majority of people who either work on RV's or are RVers themselves are so basically good. As with most folks my age, I have been hard hit with economy and am having to pinch my pennies until they literally scream. So I'm trying to find the very cheapest places to stay; in fact, I really prefer boondocking with an occasional day or two at an RV park to do laundry, etc.

Several weeks ago the motor and gears for the living room slides went haywire....

More on BC's

Posted 05-08-2009 at 08:08 PM by geaugeausmom

*Back from our run. We are at an RV park in Gila Bend, AZ, where we spent the winter. When the wind is not blowing at gale-force, I leash Gogo and attach the leash to my bicycle. My initial plan was to teach her to trot alongside of the bike. She had other ideas. From day one, she made it her job to pull the bike (and me, all 100 ++ pounds). Twice a day she bombards me with kisses, barks, and general frenzy until I leash her, and we go. We have become a fixture here--she really does pull...

Back to the BC''s

Posted 05-05-2009 at 06:56 PM by geaugeausmom

Grrrrrr! Another entire post lost to cyberspace. Is it this site or my computer?

After the fiasco with the pups and the Albuquerque balloon festival, we spend about 5 weeks returning to
Florida. I had plans to hit the road again several days before Christmas--about 4 weeks away.

Sadly, I had come to the heartbreaking conclusion that I had to re-home one of the two--but which one? Fortunately, I did not have to make that choice.

One...

Cyberspace and broken homes

Posted 05-03-2009 at 03:42 PM by geaugeausmom

Where does stuff go when it vanishes from the computer?

My broken home is not the result of computers and cyberspace. It is the result of some broken gear teeth in both the living room slides. Presently, a fellow camper who is a retired RV mechanic is under the coach working on the gears, trying to get the slides retracted so that I can get to my repair appointment on Thursday.

The puzzle is why both slides got broken gears simultaneously. They are...

BC's, continued

Posted 05-02-2009 at 12:28 PM by geaugeausmom

I got Gogo from a friend whose bitch had had pups. Now, I'm not usually one for making stupid decisions, but when I do, boy, is it a doozey. I, also, took her brother. Bad decision. BAD decision!

At the time, I had a double-wide on 20 acres, where the pups had plenty of room to run and play and exercise.
This was spring in Florida, and I had a beautiful flower garden. Guess where I'm going with this. Yes, of course, in a week's time they had completely destroyed my garden. I had...

Border Collies

Posted 05-02-2009 at 12:21 PM by geaugeausmom

My Border Collie is 3 1/2 years old. She is the most delightful, persistent, laugh-provoking, annoying, loyal, intelligent companion one could have. Gogo(aka Geaugeau) is my first experience with owning a dog--all my own, a house-dog. She dogs(pun intended) my heels, butt, hands every moment of the day. At night, she sleeps right next to my head. She wakes me in the morning by licking whichever arm is out of the cover. Then, she stands over me, pawing at me until I get up.

Limbo

Posted 05-01-2009 at 11:44 PM by geaugeausmom

While I am thinking of a title for my blog, I'll go ahead and blog on. I want to think of an amazing, eye-catching, original title.

Right now I'm sitting at an RV Park at Gila Bend, Arizona, in the Sonoran Desert. This is one of my favorite places on earth; I've been here since December 10, 2008. My plans to leave on April 10, 2009, went ahead, and I went to the Painted Rock Petroglyphs to spend the next 10 days.

The ten days I stayed there were an amazing experience....

LIVING IN THE CLOUDS
Our adventures at Vance Toe River Lodge Campground


Back in June, 2008 Brett bought a used 1995 35í Dutchman Classic 5th Wheel with a 14í Slide out. Thinking it would be great to have for short weekend trips away. Things changed over the months while the camper sat untouched. In December 2008 Brett and I made a trip to my home state of Indiana. On our trip back to Florida we made a stop in the Smokey Mountains and then on to his dadís place

I have a Blog??

Posted 04-25-2009 at 10:48 AM by Robin_M

I just discovered that everyone has a Blog on this new forum software, should they choose to use it. Neat.

This may be the only post I ever make to mine, as just reading the forum messages takes a LOT of time. Still, I'd like to let others who may somehow stumble across this post that I DO have a web site dedictated to our Monaco Diplomat. I enjoy keeping it up...

Camp with a view

Posted 04-21-2009 at 01:59 PM by Janet H
Updated 02-28-2019 at 10:18 AM by Janet H

There are some things in this world I just don't understand. Why bottled water from a city tap sells for big bucks just because it's labeled 'mountain', why tiny trailers often cost more than large ones and why people choose to camp in a fancy parking lot for 40 dollars a night when you can camp for free with a view.

All things being equal, I'd prefer free water from the tap and a great view. Leave the asphalt campgrounds for others; I want to camp with a view.

Millennial boondocking - no what??

Posted 04-21-2009 at 01:51 PM by Janet H
Updated 02-28-2019 at 10:22 AM by Janet H

Camping with no services used to mean no water, power or sewer but times are changing! Last week we spent a few days at Wallowa state park in Oregon and while there was power and some other services in the campground, there was no cell or aircard service. Imagine my astonishment - no internet! Getting connected involved driving about 12 miles and mooching off a local provider.

The state park was lovely and just barely opened for the season. While daytime temps were in the mid 60's,...
