I guess an RV life doesn’t exclude thee possibility of a last minute plane trip. I flew with the Littles to Portland to see my mom and attend a memorial service in Everett WA.
An overnight with full hookups after three weeks with 8amp service (you heard me) and water out on the Lunde ranch.
These spherical panoramas just don’t capture scale very well at all. For example, Pikes Peak rises above this particular fruited plain in its Purple Mountain Majesty but the spherical makes it look like a bump on the horizon.
August 13, 2016. Birthday number 4 on the road., mine. We drove into Colorado Springs then up to Manitou Springs to see the cliff dwellings. 18 years living here and not once visiting till now. So many things have been overlooked. We will try to do a few more before we leave again.
Myrtle isn’t so thrilled with having her photo taken. Odin found a quiet spot. Both enjoyed the sensation of grinding the corn.
Birthday number 3 on the road. Myrtle turned 8 last Friday. We are staying on Amy’s property in Colorado. We have yet to miss sharing a birthday. This reminds me that I have yet to get a photo of the 3 of us girls this year.
I wrote a long note in 2009 on Facebook about who Amy is and how we got to here. She has been many things to us, to me. 18 year long friendship, past business partner, family, traditional surrogate mother to my daughter.
After 10+ years of failure in my attempts at becoming a mother she stepped in to make that happen. Her sacrifice helped make way for my body to work only once in creating and carrying to term my second gift, Odin.
What does this have to do with our RV journey? The fact that we have as much flexibility in our lives to park for 3 weeks in their driveway, spent quality time without interfering with normal life for anyone. We can choose where we want to be, when we want to be there.
While plinking with a BB gun, our daughter (8) asks what my varmint rifle (a Ruger 10/22) would do to soda can. We show her.
Then our youngest (7) says, “Let’s shoot a full one!”
You got it – in HD and slow motion.
The laugh afterward is awesome.
The technical stuff: a basic Ruger 10/22 with no mods; CCI Stingers (22LR), at about 30yd.
