How exciting, I’m counting down the days till I head back out on the open road. Doing all those things required before heading out. Checking tires, oil levels, fluids to make sure their in good condition. Added a second battery to my camper for those dry camping excursions.

And I’ve been working on my Blog, cleaning it up and making a few changes. The most noticeable one will be when a person does a search on my blog (in the upper left hand corner of the blog page). Now if you do a search by “state”, it will show all the blog articles I’ve written about that state. I went back through hundreds of postings and edited the Titles to include the State so the search would be more effective. I’ve also added a favorite new link to a site called Roadside America. It lists all those really quirky and fun places to visit in each state. Check it out if your one of those folks that like to see the unusual and fun site seeing places. It’s very comprehensive and I just know I’ll be using it a lot this year.
As of today, March 3rd, it’s been 3 weeks since I had my hernia surgery and I feel great. It’s nice to finally get back into the groove and not have to be concerned about what exercise I do, how much I walk or worry about over straining myself. And of course with my impending travels, I’ll be able to enjoy exploring our country all that much more.
At a clubhouse meeting the other day, the owner of the park introduced some new campers to the group and then reminded them to make their reservations if they were planning on coming back for next years winter season. The wife responded, “when your over 70 you don’t buy green bananas and you definitely don’t make reservations 6 months out”. They got a whooping response from the rest of the crowd.

We all do projects to keep busy each day. I have a policy of trying to do only one project a day…. That adds up to 365 projects a year. Whew, I’m exhausted just thinking about it. My friend Ron decided to update his carpeting and mats in his older car. He filled a spray bottle with a mixture of RIT dye and sprayed the carpeting and mats to bring back the color. His car doors were wide open and the mats were sitting on the back hood drying. Hope it works Ron.
