Bertha got me to Texas....kinda just barely! LOL! She had a tough couple of last days on the road, but she made it!
I'm at the kids here and parked and now comes the ...."do I work or just sit"!?!?!? I've got to get "Bertha II" before I can do any more traveling. Bertha has done me well since I had to move into her. But her age is showing and I'm no longer really into "projects" as large as she if becoming.So time will tell time, as in the next couple of weeks, just what my next move will be.
But it is nice to be back where the "lo"is 50 and the "hi" is 70! My kind of weather! I'm back into shorts again so I'm happy! LOL!
Just wanted to bring you guys up to speed with my travels and I'll get back on here soon as I know what directions I wll be headed in the next weeks/months!
Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day and you're getting ready for Christmas!

Had a great visit in Challis. Met a lot of great folks that became friends, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again next year when I get back up to this part of the country.
Ernie and Sally, the couple that opened up part of their yard for me to park in, are a really sweet and just plain great couple! Ernie was my guide to see some of the area that after 2 years of camp hosting I had still not been able to go and see!
Now, granted, this time of year, a lot of places are already closed up for the winter months...but you can still see them and have an idea of where and what you will do next time through!
We made a run up to and through Bayhorse Ghost town, which is now operated by the Forest Service. But it is very well done, has good parking and quite a bit to see.
From there we traveled on over to Bonanza & Custer Ghost Towns, with a stop at the old gold dredge that is between them. The dredge is now a museum that is open during the summer months (another place that I will have to get to next season) for visitors.
And it is really fun when he looks up a road on a hillside and then says...."you think we can make it up there?" My response was " You know your truck...and as long as I don't have to walk out...have at it!!!" LOL!
And due to him knowing the area pretty well, there are some fantastic views to be seen!
Didn't get a picture, was too late, but one night I even saw a cougar wandering through the trailer park where I was parked.
That pretty well catches me up on what's current with, as one of my new friends calls me, "the transient local"!!
And as soon as my "budget" catches up with me I'll be rolling along south and getting a couple of more updates ready for you....both still shots and I'll also have more video uploaded in the next couple of weeks!
|It looks like a mess...but it really isn't...just have to stack and balance in order to get all my stuff in reach to be able to work on my projects!!|
Take care and be safe!! C'ya!!! :-)

I'm planning on pulling out on Saturday, 11/5, and spending about 12 days on the road getting to Tx. I've found and marked several BLM sites to stay at on the way down. Plus I'll probably be stopping at some of my "old overnight spots" from my driving days.
So stay tuned and I'll be uploading pics and videos during the course of the next 2-4 weeks of the trip and what we find on it!!
