Preparing to get back on the road

We have been taking it easy and resting as much as possible the last two weeks as it's time once again to hit the road.It's hard to believe we have been here almost two months now. Our time here has been wonderful and we will miss it but at the same time we are getting a little "hitch itch".

It has been a little warmer so the daytime is spent indoors with the air conditioner running then everyone kinda migrates outside in the evenings. Other than a couple times the night time is still cool and pleasant. Buddy has been limiting his walks to once in the a.m. and once in the evening, so he and I are getting a little pudgy around the middle.We will have to work on that again. He likes to check out new territory so these next few weeks on the road we can walk a little more.

Some might think full time RVing is all fun and games but there are times when it is no different than living in a stick house. When we had a house there might be weeks on end where we didn't do much other than normal house hold chores and an occasional visit to a favorite restaurant . We plan on coming back here so didn't push to see everything. We are also trying to give our budget a break as our travels between here and Silver Springs, Florida in November will stress it a little.It always cost's more when you are moving often because you have to pay the higher nightly rates to park.We try to use our Passport America 50% off as much as possible but those that accept it are sometimes few and far between.

Last week we went to Denise's house for our oldest Grandsons Birthday Supper. We had Kraut burgers which are his favorite and they were Delicious( They are bad for Linda's and My diet so we don't eat them much). Nic is now 25 years old and I can't for the life of me figure out where these last 25 years went. Our kids shouldn't be 25.. let alone our grandchildren ! Guess who didn't get pictures before he had to leave to celebrate with his friends?

We did catch another car show today where I got some more shots of cars I hadn't seen yet.It's refreshing to go to a car show and see different cars each time. The setting was a retirement community nestled against a wooded hill ( I'm from Colorado..It's not a mountain) with a nice field and pond out front. On the way home we stopped by a benefit " dog and car wash" to see if we could get Buddy a bath. We decided to pass when we got there as they just had some kiddie pools in a parking lot and a garden hose with cold water. Yes he is spoiled, but that's o.k. I will do it myself as I have inherited the job.Linda bathed him for almost 7 years so I guess it's my turn.

I'll probably do some short posts from the road as a progress report until we get to Greeley.Chasing A Rainbow.

This is one of many Antique cars RVR'S bring to the park
