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!

I saw my first robin here yesterday, and we have our first daffodil blooming now! Do ya think maybe spring is here? I know that the tree pollen count has been rising here in the Springfield, Ohio area, so that is also a good sign. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, because Easter is still 3 and a half weeks away, but the weatherman has said that we're done with the teens and 20's for temperatures. This time last year we were brand new fiver owners, and we couldn't wait to use it. Well needless to say we have broken our fiver in even if we haven't gone full time yet. We have the travel itch already and want to do some short trips this spring.

The surgeon is going to set up my Mom's back surgery soon as they can arrange it! I doubt it will be before Easter though, so probably sometime around the middle of April, so that will give us some time to go out for a few days. I see a trip to Alum Creek state park in our near future because that is one of our favorite parks near here! I love being there in the spring and seeing everything come alive. Also right now there are a lot of deer and animal activity in the spring.

Jamie and Kara have found an apartment and are moving in next Monday! Things are finally starting to happen for them and I think it will be a great thing for them to be on their own. I will be keeping Kara, our grand daughter when Jamie is at work. He has decided to start working 6 days a week, and our other son, Corey will keep Kara when we are out and about for a few trips this spring. Well that is about all our news for the moment, but I promise I'll be back soon!
