Awwww, thank you.

Y'all are right up there on my list of things and people I am grateful for, and you know that because I have said it here many times.

You have helped me thru the darkest, worst period of my life, and I can't imagine having done it without ya'.....that's the truth.

Roaming around WalMart this am, I found these while looking for coffee filters.

I am not a big instant coffee person, but I do like their Via with cream and sugar when traveling (Greece ) or on some days when out in the Interstate and am up and ready to hit the road fairly early.

So, I got some, came home and made myself one, and it is pretty darned good.

$1 cheaper at WalMart than Starbucks, and about 1/4 the cost per cup of one made for you at the store.

A new favorite for my cabinet.

Hi Maggie!

I have noticed several times you mentioned camping in "PA" campgrounds, and was wondering what type they are? We love to camp in COE & Federal CG's, but I don't know if we've heard of the PA CG's before. Thanks.

Deb

Hi Deb!

PA = Passport America, the 50% off campgrounds club.

Not all campgrounds take this, but it has a low annual fee and is a great way to cut costs for overnights while going from here to there.

Other than a Federal or COE, with the Golden Age Passport or other discount, these are the best deal going.

Thanks, Gail.

You are on my list of people to meet next year, and I hope you are considering coming to Ray Eklund's Wyoming trip next August.

Maggie and ALL: While traveling west make a reservation and stop by the Spearfish SD City campground. I will be volunteering at the DC Booth Fish Hatchery next door to the campground and we would like to see some AS folks. Just not the first full week in August as that is Sturgis Bike Week and they are already sold out.

i would love to meet you, Bud, and have been to the beautiful city campground in Spearfish, SD, many times.

I will keep that in mind, but please remind me next summer as I am heading west.

Good to be reminded of the bike rally. Yikes, does that take over the entire area.

Maggie:

I will remind you in advance. Sturgis Bike Rally is actually everyone should see. The town of Sturgis is only about 6,000 people and is about 20 miles from Spearfish during "Bike Week" there are upwards of 750,000 people in the area about 600,000 bikes. When we used to ride we would attend the rally. Yes, the entire area, every campsite, motel and B&B are booked sometimes years in advance. We used to stay 60 miles away and the hotels there were almost always booked in advance. However, we love the Black Hills and would ride all day, still do when we visit, but now it's in an F350.

Figured you might try to slip into the campground on the way to WY. I would love to meet you (and Lily).

Bud

See, all those bikes just hold no appeal for me.

They are loud, they are loud, they are loud.

I understand the appeal they have for some, but I do not share that.

However, I will plan on coming by. I want you to meet Lily.

Don't know when, way too far out to know that, but I will be by.

yes, I am planning on that... don't know if I'll do the "wilderness camping" part, but I'll get to Wyoming for sure...

Great. The bikes "held" a great deal of appeal for me, used to have no fewer than two at a time and would ride any chance I had, about 25,000 miles a year. Then texting came, many friends killed or injured by texting people. Now its our Airstream and dogs, training, working and saving is my relaxation.

I have been immersed in a detail-oriented task these past few days that is nearing completion.....and thank goodness, as I am brain-weary.

Have taken a break to walk Lily, have a bit of pistachio ice cream , and get on these Forums.

It is looking and feeling very fall-ish outside....a bit of rain, overcast, leaves are turning color and falling rapidly, all that.

My most favorite time of year.

Have made myself a promise to get the Interstate winterized and out to bed in its storage lot this weekend, but I haven't gotten to it yet and will not today.

Going to finish up this other thing.... still several hours needed before 'tis done.....have a long soak in the tub, a glass of wine, and watch a movie.

Why? Because I deserve it.

As the primary caretaker of me, those are my priorities for today.


Maggie
