Still in West Virginia!

 A quick update...and still in West Virginia!!  Love this country, especially the mountains, which is where I've basically been for the past 4 weeks. 

Currently in Elkins, WV doing laundry, "monthly restock" and taking care of a few errands! All it takes is for me to be in "the city" for over 36 hours and I really, once again, appreciate the mountains and the woods!! There is really just no peace in the cities! I don't care how quiet it gets at night...it is still noisy compared with the woods and mountains!

Had a great site on the Stonecoal Dispersed camp area. All sites had tables and most had a view of the Cheat River with easy access. Was a very pleasant stay!


Next moved up on top of Cheat Mountain, a very pretty area with great views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

The views were just picture perfect...and the clouds were something else. I shot way too many cloud pics!!  LOL! There were a couple of days of rain, and the winds, at times, reminded me of the winds in New Mexico during windy season!






  I really enjoyed the stay on the top of the ridge and really enjoyed the weather! Especially the COOL temps!!






As I head back up to the mountains later today, I'll be headed towards a spot my friend Keith took me to...which I have named "The Panorama Site"!!!  It basically has a view that is way over 200 degrees across, with NO trees to hamper the valley views! And in about a week the colors, which are just now really coming out, will be close to their peak and I hope to get some awesome fall color shots from there!
 
Another thing seems to be in abundant supply are the bees and butterflies! They are just all around every day!  Not withstanding the fact that the goldenrod is BLOOMING all around the area. And I mean BLOOMING!!  But it has made for the chance to catch some good shots of the butterflies!
















And then of course there are all the flowers that do all the hard work of attracting the butterflies!!







 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hard to get a really focused shot when the wind keeps blowing at 15+mph!










So thanks for checking in with The Frog! Be sure to check back...more pics and videos are on the way, to include a tour of Lily!

C'ya out here!!

Travels with Frog, Chapter 2

 Hi Gang!

It's been too long, but here is Chapter 2 of Travels with Frog! I hope to get more timely with my updates! I've gotten an AT&T phone so that I will have cell service here in WVa. AT&T pretty well has this state locked up for cell service!!

Hope you enjoy the video!

 

I will soon be uploading a video on my van "Lily"...what I've done to and on and in her to be out here full-time on the road. As is my normal activity, I'm still looking for places off the beaten paths where you can slow down for a time and relax...and...hopefully get into the woods, and step back in time! 

Keep checking back and see what we come we find out here on the back roads of the U.S.A. 🐸🐶

Be Safe!

Travel Easy!

And...

Go to the Woods!!

Travels with Frog, Chapter 1 (video :-) )

 I have started a "video series"! 

Travels with Frog!

I hope you enjoy the video and coming chapters!! 

I have started my "travels 2021"...after an extended break to take care of Lily and to be sure she was ready for a LONG trip on the road! If all goes "according to my plans", I should be out here wandering around for the next 3-5 months before taking a break back in Alabama.

So stick around with us and see what all we can find out here in the great U.S.A!!

So remember.....

Be Safe, Travel Easy and.....

Go To The Woods!!!

 C'ya!

Frog's Travels

 
There used to be a video here. But as you can tell I've pulled it down...actually, I've deleted my account from YouTube. 

A rather long story, but suffice it to say that I am quite pissed right now! When you can be challenged about using "copyrighted" music, have proof that it is not, that it is royalty free music that you have purchased a couple of decades in the past....but still are found to be in the wrong...but are given no choice except to either "mute", remove or "have a mark against your site".....I'm done with that.

I've been in this field too many years to put up with this kind of nonsense! I will try to continue to use this site for now. But I'm in the process of deciding (rather figuring out) what my next steps will be on this platform.

Suffice it to say that Google (or should I say "Alphabet" corporation) are not very high on my list of companies that I think are worried about "helping" the little guy to get along in this "social laced" world.
