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!

After Thanksgiving:
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and are enjoying the afterglow! Ours was nice, we went to Circleville to my Moms like we do every year and took Kara with us as her Dad had to work. Everything was really good, and we all ate too much. Mom and I only cooked for only 10 this year instead of the 25 we had last year! It was still too much work for her and the standing really makes a mess of her back. She just won't just let me do it all. I guess she isn't ready to relinquish her kitchen to me completely yet. Anyway it was a good day and I hope yours was too!

Tomorrow it is off to the med center on base to get xrays of my hands and my knee. My hands are full of arthritis, like my knee and they want to see how bad it is. For my knee I just have to have an updated xray before I have my surgery in February. The last one that they did was a year ago. Mike has some prescriptions he has to pick up also.

Today Mike got the fiver winterized since it is 57 today, and he could do it without freezing. He was glad to get that crossed off of his list of things to do, and now he is in the process of washing the truck. His back will be killing him, but he just won't let it get the best of him. It doesn't do any good for me to tell him not to do something he wants to do so it is better for me just to save my breath. LOL! It is supposed to be colder the rest of the week so I guess he picked the right day to do it. We actually had, dare I say that dreaded word, SNOW flurries on Friday Morning before we left Circleville. YUCK! I envy all you guys basking in the nice weather of our southern states this year. Maybe next year we can be in the group too! Well it is time for me to get busy so I'll end here and I hope you all are safe and doing well today, so until next time....
