Still in Roswell!


🐸  Still in Roswell, NM....much to my surprise!  I started to get my pre-trip done this morning...and...the dipstick was missing!!  I forgot to make sure that I replaced it when I did my pre-trip yesterday morning! Soooo...thankfully there is an O'Reilly's right next to where I parked here at the Sam's. The new dipstick will be here at 0730 in the morning.
 And life is back to normal...I have my Sumo wresting tournaments to watch again! Which I had missed for the past 5 months! Ahhhh...life is good!!  Heheheheh
I also noticed yesterday that the positive post on the Sidekick's battery is seeping. Walked over to WallyWorld today & since it is under a year old & still in the 1 year warranty they will just replace it. This is a defect in the manufacture, so it will not cost!! Thank goodness!

So I have come to the decision that over the next months/years you will be seeing and hearing about a lot of different places. The reason?  When I sit in one spot for more than 4-6 weeks it really messes with my system and daily routine. So I will be on the move a lot more!

Which means you will be able to see pics and videos from a lot more areas and places to visit! Which also makes me happy! 

There were some really strong thunderstorms that passed thru here last night. In fact, there were even some flash flood warnings put out late last night. The parking lot here looked like a stream and a small lake for a little while also last night.

Shots from Tuweep Overlook again at the Grand Canyon. If there is any way that you can get there, do it!



 Everywhere I go, there is the beauty of the majesty of Nature!

"Look Martha....there's another one of those human critters trying to be "natural"! Think he'll make it??"  I'm trying!!! 🐸 


Tomorrow, after the new dipstick and new battery are taken care of I will be headed back out on the road for North Richland Hills. More pics coming soon!!

C'ya out here real soon, I hope!!

My "new" Phone Is Working!

Well... It's working after about 4 hours of trying!  But it's working! And not do I have a lot of learning to do! This is the newest phone I've had in several years, still a couple of versions behind on Android, but still ahead of me! I'm not in a Kyocera DuoForce mil-speced phone. And I love it! These phones seem to be able to withstand me for quite a long period of time.

Hopefully this is going to lead to more updated on here, more info about places to go & ideas on living the "Mobile Tiny Home Lifestyle"!

C'ya soon!  🐸🚐☕🏕🏔

On The Road Again!

 

I'm back on the road again! And I must admit...I do truly miss it when I'm not on the road traveling across this land! And I do miss it when I'm not out here on the road!  

We (Myself, Abbie & Snickers)  spent the night at a "picnic table pull-off"  last night, on the side of the road, and slept like bricks!  So many years on the road, sleeping in truckstops, rest areas & the such...the sounds that bother so many people are just the sounds that help me sleep! 

I'm going to be stopping in Roswell, NM in a few hours to get a sim card to be able to get my "new to me" Kyocera DuoForce phone up and operational! I was able to find one for a killer price on Amazon, just didn't have a sim in it. But they are free (all the companies want your business..LOL! ), so when I found this one for basically 66% less than any of the others I found, it was time for a phone that could handle what I needed it to handle!

I'm also having to get used to the time zone change.  It's already mid-morning and I'm just now on my second cup of coffee! So it is time to do my morning "pre-trip" and get ready to roll for the day. Should be in the panhandle of Texas by tonight!
The Moon was just absolutely beautiful last night!

10 Days To Go!!!

Counting down the days to "On The Road Again"!! And can't wait! But at the same time I am not looking forward to the warm climate of the Southern U.S.  πŸΈπŸšπŸŒ„

It has been a good summer here, and soooo much cooler than down south! So at least part of the summers I will be here in the Mtns of AZ.





So my next update will probably from on the road. Maybe not! LOL!  I'll be moving up to the showers next Sunday for 4 days before I hit the road, that will be for final preparations & purge of items no longer needed!

So be sure to stay tuned, stay safe, & stay cool!!

Labor Day Over! 15 days to go!

Labor Day weekend has come & gone! So peace reigns in the gorge once more! But we are also are getting a bunch of rain. It is still needed tho!

We were about as full as the gorge could get, only 4-5 empty sites in the whole gorge. Right now there are about 8 campers in the whole gorge.

I'm still throwing stuff away, and redoing my storage, & relocating things!  I now have curtains to pull across the front for nite privacy when on the road. That will make the nightly stops a lot easier!

I'm still sorting out pics & grouping them into areas, kinds & "trips". So when get back to "civilization" it will be easier to update. And there will be a lot of pics to get up.

So, once again, C'ya soon!
