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!

Swimming and Evening Storms

   Yesterday we went swimming most of the afternoon until the girls got cold and wanted to go back to the fiver. Then as soon as we got back and changed they wanted to go right back to the beach. Sorry Girls, didn't happen. We sat around and played Everyword Crossing on my Kindle. They are all hooked on the game now! Lol ! It is kind of like Scrabble, but I don't mind because it is teaching them how to spell things. I have been told that they now all want a Kindle for Christmas.  Haha! After dinner we got everything put away because of the storms coming.

   The storms forecast hit around 11:30 p.m. up here. We had put all the chairs under the trailer and taken the covers off the canopy frames. With the wind supposed to be so high we brought the slides in, you talk about cramped quarters, we had them!  There was a lot of complaining about no room, but I'd have rather them be safe. With the slides in the recliners touch the the couch, so 2 of the girls had to put their feet on the couch and one had to sleep on the couch.   Our bedroom slide was also pulled in but at least we had a bed to sleep on, if only I could have slept! This morning all I heard was , and I quote, " I never want to spend another night like that again" ! Better safe than sorry, Girls!  We had to take the dog cage down and put the dogs in the bathroom to sleep. They did really well though. I am thinking about letting them sleep in the bathroom the rest of the trip, cos the cage takes up so much room in the fiver. The dogs have been so good for this being their first time camping. I am pretty impressed with them!

   I promised the girls  ravioli and meatballs for dinner, so I am going to put that in the crock pot before we go wash some towels, and get showers. I love crock pot meals when we're camping. Nice and easy when using frozen ravioli and frozen meatballs, with spaghetti sauce.  It is something they all like and it takes minimal effort from me! Lol! 

Time to go:
   Well I will be talkin' to ya's later, so have a good day, and I hope everyone survived the storms last night with little or no damage. Take care ya'll !  Until next time see ya's...
