This past year was an accelerated learning experience for me and the learning isn’t over. I have enjoyed the transition into retirement very much, considering I was a workaholic most of my life. I think what made the difference is I tried something new, “Full Time Rving”.
‘Twas a cold winters morning and the puppy was still snoring, while visions of goodies pranced in his head. I too was sleeping when suddenly I awoke to a small soft steading beeping. What, not Santa’s Reindeers, so where was this beeping from?
I wake up in Island Park, Idaho at a great RV park with room for Jagger to run close by at Lake Henry BLM area and the Sawtelle National forest, right across the street. This morning we are lounging around, recuperating from the drive here yesterday and the setup of our camp. […]
With the coach all hitched to the workhorse, Jagger and I say good-bye to Bannack Ghost Town and head South-East to Island Park, Idaho
Strolling down the main road in town you can image what it was like so many lifetimes ago.
The wind was howling and the sky was threatening. But it was my only chance to at least see where many Nez Perce Indians were slaughtered and experience the sadness. Both cultures clashed and misunderstanding prevailed, but that was reality in that day. So I went out into the battleground alone to feel the history all around…
It’s been great here at my “Home Base”, I have rested and had some great family times with my Sister and Brother-in-law. I also completed some needed maintenance on my Workhorse and Coach with a little site-seeing to boot. I’m ready to roll South.
Jagger is an Australian Sheppard born on October 14, 2013 in West Virginia. He is black with white markings and tan points, and light blue eyes.
As we were admiring the view we noted a set of rather ominous black clouds moving over the mountains and down the valley so we decided to hightail it back down to the trailhead.
So far I am two for two. I have taken the Coach in for warranty work twice and both times I have been hung up, waiting for parts.
The warranty repairs consisted of the Utility support under the kitchen slide, the Lippert rear stabilizer pin that broke and the most important repair was the electric mode of the Dometic refrigerator.
A little precarious at times, not only from the rough road needing a high clearance vehicle, but a couple of very steep drop off’s if you miss a turn.
