Wed.Feb. 8th Visiting Friends

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        Another sunny, warm, windy day here, does the wind ever stop? But hey, what am I complaining about the sun is shining, it is actually warm 70-72 f, it could be a lot worse.

        Morning coffees, computing and I was going to do a walkabout. I was quite stiff this morning (not sure why) and as I set out realized this walk was not going to happen. Bent over and in pain I turn around go back home and relax with a bit of ice. I hate when this happens. So got a chiropractor appointment for this afternoon. 

        In the meantime we drove to visit Rick and Suzy, just too far to walk right now. They pulled in last night and are here for 5 nights. We went to check out their new house. We met them last winter in south Texas and they had been fulltime rvers for just 6 months. They had a nice 5th wheel and diesel pickup truck. Just last week they traded this setup for a very nice (new to them) motorhome and a small car to tow behind it. Big change for them. After 18 months they realized that it would suit them better to drive a nice motorhome, setup is easier and quicker, its easier to back into a site than a trailer and they have a nice small car to drive around that gets real good gas milage. They didn't care much for the pick up truck for site seeing and grocery shopping.

        We had the tour of their home, they had not finished unpacking yet so we gave them a few tips. (don't move again!) Their front tv was analog and they were going to get a digital converter box for it. well just so happens I had a brand new one in a box so we made a real good deal and I installed it, they now have tv to watch.

        After a bite to eat for lunch we headed down the Bullhead City parkway a quick freeway to the south end of town where the chiropractor is.

        Now after an amazing adjustment I feel brand new (almost). I can move, stand up straight, and the pain is almost gone wow! Back home we stopped by Rick and Suzy's for Happy hour, I will celebrate with one beer.

        Ok now we getting hungry so to our house and I can get out the cutting board, start chopping and slicing for supper. Onion, mushrooms, asparagus, zuchinni, celery, carrots, fresh garlic, pork, chicken, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots all the prep for a chinese craving we had. Now a drizzle of olive oil, a couple of pans and quickly throw it all together ending up with mushroom egg foo young, pork fried rice and sweet and sour chicken. Hit the spot and we have leftovers, yummy!

        Now relax again with a bit more computing, reading, ice pack and tv calling it another fun day. In a few days my back will be good as new until it decides beg for another adjustment.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I can sure understand your friends switching to a Motor Home. After having both a travel trailer & a 5th wheel we have never regretted the move to a Class A.

  3. Thanks Lou we got out chinese fix too.
