If you have checked out my comment section lately, you know a reader named Larry relayed a suggestion that rather than marking off items from my “Life List of Things To Do” fearing I would run out of things and then life would be over -- I should create a list of experiences I have had. That is a good suggestion but clearly, Larry has never seen my list!

If we had 100 years to travel around the United States in our wonderful Penny the Pace, we would still never run out of things to see and do. Fellow Rvers understand this completely but those of you who might take only one or two vacations a year have to be very choosey about what to see and where to go because of time restraints. We rarely travel more than 200 miles in one trip when we roll down the road and then we park for a minimum of a week, and in some cases a month or more at a time. After we are set up, we get in The Lone Ranger and travel out from our “home base” in a 100 mile (plus or minus a few) circle. In this way, we can visit special places, and do our sightseeing in a very leisurely fashion. In our opinion, it is the ONLY way to see this beautiful country.

Of course, sometimes we just hang out in our comfortable motorhome and rest. Every so often, we spend some time catching up on housekeeping and other chores but our favorite activity is visiting with friends and family. Below are a couple pictures of our friends, Joan and Charlie who have a home base in Shelton but travel all winter looking for sunshine. We met for a late lunch/early dinner at the Golden Corral Buffet (yummy!) then went to their motorhome to play with Joan’s computer and help her with questions she had about some maneuvers. Phil helped her while I watched … HA!
Happy Birthday week to my youngest, Bobbie in Shelton. Her birthday was Tuesday and she has a whirlwind of lunches and visiting with friends planned. Oh yes, Happy Belated birthday to Virgil ... we love you too!
