One of the problems encountered while traveling as a full-time RVer is communications. I will say, for the most part, Verizon has done a good job of providing access to the internet. However occasionally when in a remote area communications become iffy, at best. On those rare occasions I have to rely on the campgrounds WIFI system to reach the outside world. Let me tell you relying on campground WIFI is a real hit or miss proposition. Where I'm located now I am on the very fringe of Verizon service with no bars showing on the meter, but I am just able to connect with 1X service which is about the same as dial-up speed. The campgrounds WIFI service is off more than it's on so I am very limited to what I can transmit. What this means is the blog has to be kept very simple ant uploading pictures is just out of the question right now. I'll try to continue to blog every day and hopefully the park owners will get their act together and service will improve on their end while I'm still here.

Yesterday I had my first area visitors knock on my door. Mike and Darrell, my two ex-brothers-in-law dropped by and we spent the afternoon catching up. 35 years ago when their sister and I decided to head in separate directions their friendship never wavered and we have remained friends to this day. Something that I will be forever grateful for. Of course my ex and I are still good friends, too. I know some of you that have traveled this path might wonder how, but it is possible.

Todays agenda is empty and some time will be spent planning the next jump when I leave here. My original plan was to head up to North Dakota, but with all the flooding they are having this year that is being reconsidered. Besides next year I have to go to South Dakota anyway to renew my drivers license so that might be a better time for that journey. Alternate destinations are being considered. No matter where I go I'll still be enjoying the good life.


  1. Just watch out for the temps this year. Even near Canada there are some unreasonable high temps.

  2. I enjoy your blog and enjoy your outlook on life, in general. Nice that your friends with your ex and her family - speaks highly of you and them.

    Reading travel blogs help me get through the days and months I can no longer travel. Enjoy every moment of your "good life".

  3. Hobopals, thank you for the nice words and I'm glad to have you along with me and my travels. You made my day.

  4. forgot to say that you were asleep in the chair when Mike knocked.
