This the story of our journey, Into Something Good, going Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and trying to Hold Onto Our Dreams. How we got on the way to becoming HALF time RVers! Our Ford 350 super duty diesel truck is our horses, we call it the Beast . Our 2008 34'7" 3 slide Cedar Creek Silverback fifth wheel is our Prairie Schooner Wagon,we call it the Bear. Just like the first RVers, the Pioneers of Yesteryear traveling around the country searching for a rich full filling life! Come along with us for the ride and read about our triumphs and mishaps along the way! About to be Part time RVers in a Cedar Creek Silverback 2008, 34'7", 3 slide 5th wheel, which is our Prairie Schooner Wagon, and a 2006 Ford 350 super duty 1 ton diesel truck is our horses, or oxen, only we have to feed it diesel instead of grass, and oats, which costs a lot more! Retired Air Force empty nesters off to see the good ole USA! Favorite Quote: "Life is a Blank Canvas, Made For Me to Add the Colors" Goal: I am trying to add as many colors as I can to my life!

We made our first reservation for our first "mini" trip in our new 5er!!!! We now have our first campground in sight! Our reservation is for Cedarbrook Campground in Lebonan, Ohio. for a whole week! So we have until the 12th of April to get everything done and bought for the 5er.

Goodbye Dear Friend:
It is with great sorrow that I say that our very best friend in the world has lost his battle with lung cancer. One half of the couple we ran around with, eating out with, camped with for 27 years. So my Saga has one heartbreaking memory to add, and I hope it's the last. My blog will be neglected from time to time until we have said , "See You Down the Road" to him. Best Friends are Forever. So Rick until we meet again......save us a table.

We arrived in Circleville, Ohio on Friday Morning. It was so good to see my Mom and Pop! We hadn't been down since Thanksgiving for one reason or another. So we had alot to catch up on. We mostly sat and talked, and of course we got out the pics of our New Baby! I'm talking about our new Cedar Creek Silverback Fifth Wheel Trailer! They were impressed with our choice and liked the layout of what we could show them in our brochure that we had from our dealer. We are going to take it down and show them after we pick it up in March. Will be our first time pulling it, so a short hour and a half trip would be a good start. We'll have to park at my brother's house, because my parents driveway is pretty steep because they live on a hill.

In fact they have a registered Indian mound, behind their house. When I get some time I will add a picture of their Indian mound on here. It doesn't have Indians buried in it though! It was used as a signal mound, by the Adena Indians to signal another mound about five miles away. Several local Indians from Columbus, Ohio came down and performed a blessing on the Indian Mound, and presented them with a certificate that stated that the Indian mound was used for a signal mound and no sacred ground was disturbed. It's a short, and steep climb up to the top and you can see for miles up there! At the top there is a plaque installed that proves it is original to the property. It is not uncommon in the spring and early may to see a bus load of school children pull up and walk to the top. The Adena Indian Drama Tecumseh is preformed at an outdoor theater just outside of Chillicothe, Ohio Which by the way was the first capital of the state of
Ohio. Well that's enough of a history lesson for today!

I know all of you out there in the warm south west are probably tired of hearing all of us mid-eastern states complaining about how cold and windy this winter has been, but it has been one of the most windy winters I can ever remember! I certainly won't mind not being here next January,February and March! Especially up on the hill where my Mom and Pop live. It really sounded like the wind was going to take the second story right off the house! We drove into the wind all the way home and it is still very windy here near Springfield, Ohio! Gusts up to 40 miles an hour are and have been the norm all weekend! This looks like a good place to stop, so I will!
