You picked a good time to get out of Dodge. It's c-c-c-cold and snowing pretty hard right now. We had a flash freeze on Sun night as the rain turned to snow in an instant and the wind just howled.

You may need to hose the roof off as the duck "calling cards" can eat through the paint.

I was concerned about exactly that.

It will have to wait til the weather breaks, tho. Cold enough here at night that there will be no hosing of anything,

Doug-the-driver took us south in snow, ice, and all manner of inclement weather....me, no thank you. Important to know ones limits.

Lily has had a good run, a batch of DO-bread-to-be-turned-into-pan-bread is mixed and rising, and oatmeal is for breakfast.

Now in the Eastern time zone, my body will stay on Central time while everything else just becomes an hour later.

But, once we do we experience LIFE...and the payoff is immeasurable. Travel on safely. Evelyn.

Dear Maggie

Your posts are very inspiring... I came across them just now, I am a fairly new member and was doing some research on how to fix my Airstream Motorhome that I bought in Arizona and drove it back to Canada by myself, to the horror of my husband that kept telling me if I am going to get an RV, just get a small one, oh well, 36' was all that they had a the time and I fell in love with it.

I am so happy that you have kept on RV'ing and have not given up on your adventures,
it's better then sitting at home.

I am very new to this forum and hopefully I will try and get my husband out to a rally,
That is after I renovate the RV which is mostly in my living room right now waiting for new upholstery, mind you that is only the easy part, the difficult part is dealing with all the damage from the leaks.......

Happy Airstreaming.....

Hi, Nancy, and thank you.

A group of we (mostly) women are gathering the second weekend in September at Fort Stevens State Park in Astoria, Oregon, if you are interested in driving down to join us. ???

It is a women's gathering, but spouses are not prohibited and at least one is tagging along.

We will be in or near L Loop, where there are also cabins and yurts for rent....some will be sans trailer.

We're going to sit around and talk, perhaps do some hiking and exploring of the area.....we might cook a bit, will surely share some wine....whatever we feel like doing.

The link to that thread is here:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f47/...-a-144837.html


Thanks for dropping in.


Maggie

It always takes me several days, at the beginning of each long trip, to transition to living in the Interstate.....then, pretty much daily activities as they are at home, just in a more scenic location.

Sip my coffee while watching the morning news, walk Miss Lily (extra of that), crochet, cook a bit, read, crochet some more.

If I didn't crochet, I would have had to find some similar hobby to fill my retirement time.

Making scarves and ear warmers this trip, for whatever shelter or soup kitchen I come across......taking a break from prayer shawls. and hoping to use up all the partial skeins of yarn I brought along.

Then, I can buy more.

Water, like fire, has entertainment value in its own right.

Being by water, anywhere, for a landlocked person like me, is a privilege.

Add the sun shining on said water, and it is like nothing else.....


Maggie

At the weekly needlework group I visit when I am home, people periodically drop off piles of yarn and crochet/knitting needles, unwanted from someone's estate....which are then free for the taking, for anyone present.

I picked this yarn up some time ago....one of those beautiful, expensive, variegated cottons I seldom indulge in...and made an ear warmer for my donation bag out of it yesterday.

Working the colors up, I decided I just had to have something for myself out of this, as well, so a couple of dishcloths should finish it off.

Some of these variegated colors are so beautiful, they make you you want to crawl inside them and wrap yourself up.

Hi Gail!

The colors are softer, less vivid, than the photo shows, but remind me of desert flowers, the southwest....something. So gorgeous.

I tend to do dishcloths and pot holders in warmer weather, and to foist them off on those I gather with, so you will get a few somethings when I see you this year, I am sure.


Maggie

Good morning, Maggie.
The colors in that photo are a lovely combination...very cheery.
I agree, there is something about water.....serene, calming. I, too, am landlocked...and look for water to photograph.....lakes, streams, waterfalls, oceans. I enjoy painting them all and use my photos as subject material....all my paintings have water in them.

Since I have never been to the west coast....the ocean and the scenery of Oregon, Washington...have been a big draw for me for many years. This year, I finally get to fulfill that wish. Yeaaaah! See you in the fall. Evelyn.
