You are right. We are spoiled. We love the absence of human voices. The discussions as to how to erect a huge tent for the first time, with each person having a different solution. People talking on their cell phones so loudly that they probably didn't need to be heard back home..... since they were yelling into their phones, etc, etc.
The flies and mosquitoes were already there awaiting their meals arrival in their cars, trucks pulling RVs and the motorhomes. How is that for a multi-day banquet?
We moved south on the 215 and looked for a place to park for the night. And here we are in the palatal estate of the Home Depot! This is a huge lot and we do not hear one voice, the buzzing of mosquitoes or flies! We will take the monotonous buzz of traffic any time over the voices of people that we do not know.
In Jojo's town, is allowable to park a motorhome on the street for three days. Tomorrow, Friday, we will park in front of her house and will leave Monday morning. Hopefully, by then, we will have a place to land for the next five weeks.
The hot, hot weather is not "supposed" to hit the area until early July or late June. June "gloom" is supposed to keep us cooler.
Jojo's birthday is July 8 and we want to celebrate her birthday with her for the first time in twenty years. Then, we are heading for cooler weather.
Where? Not sure. Our desire is cooler temperatures and no humidity. Both are essential elements for keeping John healthy. Any suggestions?
We must be back in Indiana late October / early November for all of John's appointments with various physicians.
We also need to schedule a visit to Red Bay, Alabama. We want Tiffin to make a few repairs on the motorhome including a boo-boo that John got when he had a fight with a large rock.
Leigh and Bryan from the blog found here always have great meals that Leigh posts in her blog. I asked her how she manages to have all the ingredients. She actually plans her menus for a week then makes her shopping list. A great big duhhhh here.
Yesterday, I made a meal plan for the next seven days. I put all the ingredients on my phone's grocery list and today, we purchased everything I will need for the next week. We will see how this goes.
What is so neat is that Leigh and Bryan hardly eat the same thing over. They go from one tasty recipe to another. John and I think this is a neat idea and are willing to follow their lead.
If you are looking for some good plant based recipes check out their blog! The meals are to die for!
We met Leigh, Brian and Curtis (Olivia's friend) at Clark Dry Lake in Borrego Springs last March. Then they found us again we we all camped at Blair Valley.
They are making their way to Washington state where they have land to park their Airstream during the summer months.
She has changed a bit from this photo!
And she is going to be a big sister in January!
As an answer to our prayers, Kelly of The Bayfield Bunch has a diagnosis and is receiving treatment after a visit to the emergency room. Read all about it in Al's blog.
With that good news, I'm outta here!
God's blessing on each of you. Travel safely...
