Allejandro, Butterpump Reunion

We are back in Minnesota for the summer for a number of reasons. Number one is that our son is getting married and we are very happy for him and his new bride. Also we need to visit family and friends. Lisa's grandfather just turned 100 which is a huge milestone. One that I hope that I never see. And the way that I see it, he ain't getting any younger.

We plan on being here till the end of September and then dragging our butts down to Kentucky to give Amazon another whirl. So what do we do for the 4 months that we are here. I think we have seen all 10,000 lakes. We have seen Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. We have even been to the Mall of America a thousand times. We get jobs! Nooooooooo!

We just spent 5 months in Florida. Relaxing, sunning our bums, killing our fair share of brain cells. We learned that relaxing that much can get expensive, not to mention the other costs that we incurred down there. New tires, new hitch, a new tooth for Dino and just plain expenses. Plus we have a wishlist of items to get in the future. New generator, new recliners, new couch, new glasses and Lil' Blue needs a makeover.

So instead of sitting around, we decided to treat this as a work camping opportunity. We both got jobs at one of my former employers who were quite happy to have us for the summer. That way we are on the same shift and schedule. The pay is good, can't complain about that. Plus it should put us in the black. Win, win.

Don't hold your breath waiting for updates from us. It should be a quiet summer.

  1. We are having a fairly quiet summer as well - it can make for a boring blog! Although, somehow I cannot imagine your blog being boring!

    Good luck and congrats on your sons wedding! We are very excited about our daughters in Oct - then we will be heading back to Amazon as well.

    Til then...

    1. It will be nice getting the wedding over with. One less expense. But one that is worth seeing them happy together.

  2. With our unexpected 5 months stay in CA, it was kind of nice to have that extra time with family and friends. Gee, I never thought of actually getting a JOB though?! Maybe next time! Congrats on your son's wedding. I like that I can read all about our RV friends kids weddings. Of our 4, none are married yet. I'm taking notes.

    1. There's not a lot to do in this area we have not already done so we really wanted to do something other than sitting in a campground for 4 months. Just ask Jim and Barb. They saw it all in 2 days.

  3. Don't tell me you got your tooth fixed! I was looking forward to seeing some toothless wedding photos!

    1. It only took a year and a half. I will definitely go to Algadonnes next time. That is one of the reasons we work so much.
