Time just flies by!!!!!!!!!

Wow!! These last 2 weeks have just flown by it seems! My new friend I mentioned in my last post arrived and stayed overnight back in the attached campground and headed out the next morning for Quartzite, AZ where she will be for the winter. Charlene showed me her Chevy Express van where she sleeps and eats and works on her was ideal for her, though she admitted that it could be a little wider and have more interior height, but its home to her. Personally, I don't think I could do it the way she does. But she does have stealth with the van, and the way her roof is set up the van looks like just another contractor pulling a cargo trailer! I hope to meet up with her again come January at the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous....more on that later.

Meanwhile, back at my place, the new bed is working out GREAT!!! I sleep so good now! And I hardly even hear the trains anymore! The nights are getting cooler, and I still need to get the trailer insulated.....about a $300 job.

Not much going on here, still getting 40 hours a week, but business has dropped off substantially!! Am considering job opportunities for spring up in SD at Crazy Horse well as Mount Rushmore and Bryce Canyon. Nothing definite, just considering possibilities to see more of the country!

The new camera takes great pics, but I am still having trouble getting them to upload to the laptop!!! Will get it figured out one of these days......everyone take care!


  1. Lets seee some more pics. How's the job going at the camp ground?

  2. Hi there, you certainly don't need software to upload pics to your laptop but part of my mobile income will be as a "photo artist" so I know a little about this. ;) There's a little software called ACDSee Photo Manager (and Editor) that can make life really nice. Again, not a necessity. There are freebies that can do what most people need. but Photo Manager helps with downloads, organizations, categorizations, simple edits, etc. It and it's companion, Photo Editor (should you so choose) are (in my opinion) the most user-friendly on the market.

  3. Used to have a Harley Road King. Road it twice to the Sturgis Rally. LOVE the area you're thinking about for the Spring. Not sure what you do yet as I am new to your blog but looking forward to getting caught up. I take it the new bed is the 8" foam - glad you don't slumber upside down in trees. ;)
