I've been doing a blog since April of 2013, that's 181 of them and I cannot tell you how much I admire those people who put out a blog every day. Every Day. Wow, it's just amazing!
Let alone the people who make a living from blogging...
There are more people out at Yellowstone National Park after Labor Day than I really expected.
I didn't realize how many retired folks were out there and I can't believe they are all here at the same time we are! :-)
|We're all waiting for Old Faithful to do it's thing|
That's a joke, as I'm sure some of them are at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and the same Indian casinos I've been staying at :-)
I'm starting to think the economy is doing better than I thought. There are a lot of new RVs out here. That, to me, says something. Another indicator is at a small general aviation airport a friend of mine is associated with: you can't rent a plane to get some time unless you're a student learning how to fly, because the rental planes are all booked. All the hangers are rented out too.
Nothing says disposable income like a new RV or a small airplane... unless you're living in it :-)
I read others blogs on traveling, RV living & VanDwelling.
I'll admit that I'm envious of the clever saying they come up with as a way to point out that, if you want to do something, there is no time like the present. It's such a true thing and I'm just jealous!
I think and think, but the only thing I can come up with is "I'd rather spend my money on good flip-flops than a winter coat!"
It's embarrassing, but it's the best I came up with.
(The flip-flops I bought were the brand 'Freewaters' brand.)
Our new (to us) RV will cruise down the highway at the 70 or 75 mph limit with ease and a smooth ride, but the gas gauge doesn't really do so well at those speeds. 62 or 63 seems to be a happier compromise between getting somewhere & the gas mileage...
So far, December in Florida has been really nice.
We went to Sanibel Island & found real sea shells!
|It's alive but it's not tiny!|
I'd been wanting to go there since I discovered the blog "I love shelling". A nice place, for the most part. I'm sure it's great if you live there or if you're renting a place with a short walk to the beach, but if you're driving down there, the $5 an hour parking fee is a real downer... Live & Learn!
I'm hoping there are affordable beaches at other places, for we tourists who are not staying at the salt water.
|The water was warm!|
I never realized that Florida got fog, it just never crossed my mind! No reason for it not to get fog...
|This was out our window this morning|
The plan is to go to Arizona next month, Quartzsite for the RTR, the RV show & just to see friends and all the other RVers that show up.
Plus there are palm trees ... I like palm trees!
