Jacks up,slide in, hook up the car and away we go, not far, but we away.

Where are we today ?
      Today we leaving town! Time to get outta Dodge. First thing at 7:30 this morning down to Pettigrew's garage to get an oil change on our car, almost forget to get it done. Service done, chat with the guys for a bit, fill our water jug with RO at the store, see our grandsons off to school across the street then back home by 8:30.
      Then we just puttered around slowly packing things up, no rush only and 96 minute drive to the campground. Rock Glen Resort in Arkona. We are booked in here for 3 weeks of camping with full hookups but our plans are written in chalk. We do enjoy this park and no overnight fees, makes it very nice. It is our home park part on the R.O.D system (Resorts of Distinction).
nice back country drive
good roads, and awesome weather
getting close, at all the wind turbines, in the area
here we are
       One thing we like here is all the sites are first come first served. There is quite a few sites that we like and never know which one we will get. This time we are down in the "Valley" a huge grassy site, at the end of the road. Nobody behind us or beside us us and wonderful warm afternoon sun = perfect!
        We arrived about 11:30 got set up, a bite for lunch and now we can relax. Some afternoon reading, walkabouts, chatting with a few people here that we have not seen since last year. Just very relaxing!
now this is awesome 
this is the view from our patio
     Then at 4 pm our friends Emile and Monique stopped by for "Happy Hour". So nice to catch up, we have not seen them in about a year. They spent most of this past winter in Florida. The year before in Arizona.
Monique, Me, Emile
now this a perfect afternoon temperature
      After they left I fired up our Weber Q to grill a couple Onion and Parsley Turkey burgers topped with avocado, tomato, lettuce and mayo on thin buns.
added t a tasty salad we had a feast
      After supper Joe dropped by to chat for a bit then we inside for the night, cooling off quite a bit now, but comfy inside.
       Sure does feel good to be here and have some nice quiet times enjoying the wonderful weather, fresh air, friends stopping by and our books. Does int get much better!
        Thanks for stopping in, drop on by anytime.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this past Winter.

  2. The wonderful feeling of being on the open road again.
    Now you can truly relax for the next three weeks. Your favourite spot must have been taken for you to be in the valley.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. I see from your "interactive map" that you have been in Willis, Texas. I live very near there, not more than a fifteen minute drive.

    1. Yeah we have been there quite a few times over the years, and visit Conroe, Trinity, and a few flea markets in the area.
      We really enjoy that area.

  4. One more "Fact of Life" taken care of, you are now back on mobile time. As time goes by you'll get closer to Vancouver. When that time comes we would love to see you both.

  10. Sometimes the short distance moves are much more rewarding than the long distance ones. At least they itch the hitch.
