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!

Today was hot, and muggy, with early evening thunder showers. The rain cooled off the heat! A cool front is going through our little valley this evening, and it is quite nice.
As promised, I looked up the meaning of of the Shawnee Indian word Chillicothe. It started out as the word "Chalahgawtha" which translated into English as Chillicothe. It was the name of one of the five divisions ( or bands) of the Shawnee Native American tribe, and also means principal town. Blackfish was the name of the war chief of the division. Chief Blackfish led raids into Boonsbourgh, Kentucky, from Chillicothe, and in 1778 he captured Daniel Boone. Daniel Boone was later adopted into the Shawnee tribe, and lived with the Shawnee for several months. Ok, now that is your Ohio history lesson about Chillicothe, the first capital of Ohio. LOL!

As you can see I haven't done anything exciting this weekend so I'm having trouble finding something to write about. I did find out some things that I didn't remember from my Ohio history class in the 8th grade though. Ha ha! I'll probably have more to write about after today, as the Grand Girls will be here tomorrow afternoon.

We're back in Chillicothe, Ohio today. We're at Mike's Moms home. Chillicothe was the first capitol of Ohio. We're right in the middle of Tecumseh Indian Chief territory. If any of you ever are in Chillicothe, make sure you go see the outdoor drama Tecumseh. I have seen it and it is worth the trip, also for you Indian buffs, Mound City is right outside Chillicothe. It is a huge serpent mound that the Indians used, back then, and it has alot of information, plus it is a nice hike. Chillicothe (Chill-i coth-e ) is an Indian word,that I will try to find out the meaning of for my next post. It is 7 p.m. and it is still 83 degrees outside, and just slightly cooler in Mike's Moms house, as she doesn't have air conditioning. Who knows, maybe I'll sweat off a few pounds!

I have been having internet problems the past few days with storms and rain so that is why I haven't been in the RV Dreams chat room the past few evenings. It's just not worth taking a chance getting my laptop fried, so I haven't been on the net. I am going into withdrawal too! I miss all my chat buddies! I hope to see ya all this evening!

Sorry I haven't written for a few days! Monday afternoon we left and drove to my brother's house, it was a short drive with no problems. Yesterday was taken up with family things, and a cookout last night. I had to pay for my campsight at my brother's house. So I again fixed steak and shrimp on the grill, this time with my Mom & Pop here too. I told Alan (my brother) that this campsite is getting expensive, costing me a steak and shrimp dinner everytime we stay here! LOL!

Today we went to Wally World, to get some things we needed, and some craft things for Autumn, and Tehya. We have to go to Mike's Moms on Friday, to take our turn staying with her. My son is bringing them down to Mike's Moms on Sunday. Then we'll go to my Mom & Pop's for dinner, so they can see the girls. After that we'll come over to Alan's and get them to bed. Then on Monday we'll leave to go to Alum Creek state park. The girls are so excited they can hardly wait! We're going to try to take them to the Columbus Zoo this next week if the weather is good. We're trying to get as much rest as we can, so we can keep up with these 2 very lively little girls! Of course, we'll be exhausted when we get them home on the 4th of July! Until tomorrow friends....
