Hellllloooooo ~ I am still around ♥ and on the move....

Our site at Rock Crusher Canyon
Don't faint ~ I know it has been forever since I posted but I am hoping now that we are on the road I can get back to some kinda habit of posting...  I think Facebook is easier for quickie notices but the blog is still great for more detail.  Anyways a lot has gone on since my last post ~ first of all I had to have therapy on my left shoulder from when I hurt it last August when my knee went out.  It ended up being a frozen joint from me babying it but after 12 weeks of therapy it now feels better about 90% of the time. With exercise and time it will be well again.  We loved spending the winter up at Rock Crusher Canyon in Crystal River this year and have decided to go back to there when we get back to Florida in November.  We love the nature there and it is not as crowded as it was down in Pinellas County.

After traveling the entire country with our faithful and dependable 2002 PT Cruiser (Petie) who had over 350,000 miles on it and many more towable miles we decided, as much as we loved Petie, it was time to trade him in.  So in March we decided to buy a 2013 Chevy Equinox fully loaded and we are loving it... We especially love the On Star and GPS system in it... I am sure we will enjoy her (Silvie) and are looking forward traveling around the country with her and the many adventures we will share.

We also decided, after 8 years, it was time to update the TVs in Tassie ~ we had analog TVs and so we decided it was time to change them out for Digital HDTVs.  We went to Creative Coach in Lakeland and had them change out all of the TVs.  What a great job they did rebuilding some of the cabinetry and installing the TVs.  In the bedroom they took the space the old TV took up and made it into a cabinet.  More room to store more stuff ~ Yippee!  Thanks Lester ~ they are awesome!!!

Our spot up at our friends house....
After they finished the TVs we headed out for our Summer Adventure ~ first stop was at our friends house up in Lee, Florida for a 4 day visit.  Ralph was like the energizer bunny washing the coach, his truck and Silvie.  He pretty much didn't stop the whole time we were there.  Then it was time for us to start our long trek to Midland, Texas where our youngest daughter, Jennifer lives with her husband Eric and out 2 beautiful granddaughters, Hannah & Alyssah.  We haven't seen them for over a year so we are looking forward to spending about 6 weeks out there.  The first day we traveled about 450 miles and stayed at a Wally World in Jackson Mississippi.  It was kinda a noisy place and we had other travelers in a travel trailer pull in around 3 AM and make loud noises, talking and slamming doors, like they were the only ones that were there.  Well that will teach me staying in a Walmart parking lot... lol  Not all of us are courteous campers....

Anyways I wanted to get an update post going and to let you know I will try my very best to keep the blog going over the summer while we are traveling... and don't forget to check out our RV review Blog... "Tassie's Campground Reviews" for updates at the RV Parks we stay at.

Come on back and follow our adventures
Have Fun & Travel Safe

We'll be back on the same site (181 already reserved) in January. Kathy wants to go back to swim with the Manatees again and kayak the area. Maybe we'll get a chance to meet Ralph too. Be Safe and Enjoy your summer travels.

It's about time.

Glad to see you back traveling. Our last Wally world stop was about a year ago and a refrigerated truck pulled in after we went to bed and we had to listen to the compressor for the rest of the night. haven't stayed in one since. Have fun with your grandkids!

Hi Donna,We're the McKenzie's from MN with a rig exactly like Tassie. We have done all the same upgrades to ours so it's fun to compare notes. Our next quest is the frig. We're concerned about it going out on the road next winter. Wonder if you've considered that? Our friends with a 2004 had theirs go out this past winter. We're talking about putting a household frig in.
