Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Another Week Down


We had another non eventful week here in the Midwest. At least the weather was nice.

Monday was Angela’s birthday so we went out to eat.

008It’s located on a old farm,they are famous for there chicken served family style.

If you notice in the picture on the right you can see a little white building which is a church on the restaurant grounds.

This is the church our my daughter was married in.


Another week down and getting closer to the big prize. I have been doing some research on ways to earn money when we hit the road.

We know with the economy the way it’s heading we are going to have to find jobs here and there to make ends meet.  But that’s ok we want to keep active as long as we can.

We plan on by next spring to getting serious looking for the 5th wheel and truck. I would like to find a package deal truck and 5th wheel. Also on the wish list is to find one that has solar power and generator all set up for boon docking which is what we want to do most of the time.

What a beautiful little chapel. And the time is a whittlin' down. I read a blog by people who are working pumpkin patches and Christmas tree lots in case you haven't thought about them.

A restaurant with a church! That is different, but now you can have a good meal and remember a great day at the same time.

Yup, your time is getting closer for sure. We find lots of people working on the road. Amazon hires lots of RVers during Nov and Dec. You will surely find something to assist in financing the life you are choosing.

Happy belated birthday to Angela. We sure miss our visits to Strouds and especially the old location at 85th and Troost. We will have to try and visit Strouds the next time we are in town.

Sounds like Angela had a really nice birthday. Happy Birthday once again.

Yep, solar power is definitely the way to go. We have 3 80W panels and 4 6V deep cycle batteries. As long as it is sunny we never have an issue. We just have to stay where it's sunny. Hope you can find what you are looking for.
