Re-Inventing the Wheel

We have arrived at our super secret undisclosed location. The weather is not co-operating for us however. It is cool most days without sun and lots of rain still. This summer is about a month behind. We are in May and it feels like April here.

We are only here a month this summer which is so unlike us. We have our big Disney adventure taking place this summer so while we are here, there are a ton of things to get done in a short amount of time. Things like working on our land project when we can. Medical and dental appointments for us and the cats. Gandalf is having several appointments also. Routine service work, fixing the dings caused by a runaway screen room and also getting fitted for pickup camper tie downs. We also want to spend enough time with friends and family while we are here also. Grandbaby one turned 1 year old while we were gone so we have catching up to do with him. It only gives us a month to spoil him.
Watching Little Baby Bum, Virgo's favorite.

As we listen to the pitter patter of rain drops on our camper, our minds start to think about our Disney trip, The logistics involved of swapping out campers. The amount of time we will spend in a pickup camper. The sights we will see along the way. Where will we be next winter? It's a wonder we get any sleep at all with so much going through our minds. (I'm speaking for Lisa only. I sleep like a baby.)

We lived in our pickup camper for a month last year when we took it to Colorado. It was fun and we liked it alot. So our Disney trip will test those boundaries because that trip will last at least 3 months. Now the "what ifs" come into play. What if we can tolerate living in the pickup camper for those 3 months? What if we decided to take the pickup camper for our winter destinations? What if we could bring our ATV's with us? What if we can't stay in the pickup camper for that length of time?

There is so much to work through at the moment. This will be a big year for us travelwise. Gandalf already has over twelve thousand miles on him. And we just bought him in December.

"Glady's, don't forget to pack the bear spray! I don't want those Pirates of the Caribbean sneaking up on us."


  1. So much to do, so much to think about I bet your minds are about to explode! (and by that I mean Lisa's)

  2. Been a lot of crummy weather for us too. We’ll be back in CA in August. Just giving you a warning;-)

    1. Sorry to mention wheel after yours just fell off. We can laugh about it now. Thanks for the warning.
