Itinerary Done


Yes, I finally just took a day, sat down, and got it all planned and reserved.  We will stay the first 4 days after leaving here, in Wallisville, Texas.  It is just a small place right before you cross the State line into Louisiana.  Next we will be stopping for a couple of days in Slidell, Louisiana, to hopefully visit with my nephew and his family.  I haven’t heard from them yet so, this may not be in the plans, but we are hoping.  Next is Gautier, MS for a couple of days.  Hoping to meet Judy, if she has the time.  We then will take a small side trip to Montgomery, AL. to meet with a couple I have been talking to for a couple of years through  my blog (old blog on mytripjournal and new blog on blog spot).  You may remember me asking for your prayers for Judy, who has cancer.  This is the lady in Alabama we are going to see.  We can’t wait to spend a couple of days with these great people.  Next we will make a stop in Milton, Florida.  My little brother’s good friend, Harry lives in Pensacola, Florida, and we hope to at least go and eat with he and his wife, Kay.  After a short stay in Milton, we will head on over to Lake City, Florida for a month’s stay.  I will be writing on the road if possible, and will give you more info on our parks, etc..

It has been up in the 80’s here all week so, it was a big surprise when the temps dipped down into the high 30’s last night.  Had been staying up in high 40’s or low 50’s.  Spring is definitely here though.  The grass is starting to green up..  It’s much harder to tell by the trees here.  Some hold their leaves, and only lose them when the new ones come on.

Want to welcome my 2 new followers.  The first is Wayne and Roberta. Check out their site.  I have been following them for quite a while.   The second is Mike and Gina.  I know they have a site, but I can’t get the URL to insert.  Don’t know what is up with that.  But, welcome to you all.  I hope you enjoy the ride.

We went  to Uvalde on Monday and had the oil changed in the truck.  Does it get on your nerves how the service depts. always say “you are next in line”, “and we will have you out of here in 30 minutes”, and then 2 hours later you are still there?  Really drives me crazy!!!!


They did have a very nice waiting room, but come on…. :(

I took a picture of all the flags that Uvalde had flying for Presidents Day.  They really take this Holiday seriously.


Like Nellie, I have been thinking very strongly about not blogging so much.  I have come to a point where it all sounds the same to me, and I think I need a break.  I will continue to have some updates, but not near as often.  No excuses, just don’t want to do it.

We did take another drive this week.  A couple of weeks ago we drove the 3 sisters, and I told Don at the time that we needed to do them in reverse so, that is what we did.  This time we started in Uvalde on 55, headed to Camp Wood, then hit 335 over to 41 and back on 336.  We didn’t back track on 337, we had done that before.  It was just as beautiful going this way as it was going the other.

We still have been playing games really often.  I will miss this so much when we leave here.  Not all parks even have club houses for use, let alone schedule things for you to do in them.  Hopefully we will find some along the way this summer.


Our dear friends, Marrolyn and Al are pulling out in the morning.  She has been feeling really bad, and wants to see her family Doctor.  We pray all is well with her, and that they have a safe trip home.  They live in Childress, Texas.  Up close to OK.

We are having another potluck breakfast in the morning.  I am taking donuts this time.  There is always soooo much food, but it is a lot of fun to get together with everyone.


That’s it for today.  Later…  :)

I'm feeling the same way about posting daily. It might be different when I'm in traveling mode (and IF I am ever in traveling mode again), but when nothing is happening there just isn't enough to even write a short entry. I do miss your blog when you don't write, though.

I may feel the same way once we're on the road and I have a life, instead of just writing about having a life. Whatever you do, just enjoy.

I meant to also say that my mom lives in Lake City, and that's where we'll head first when we break out of the ice.

Maybe you could blog every few days, or whenever you feel like writing. Even if you just wrote once a week, I hope you keep writing! Sounds like your agenda when you leave Texas will be a busy one.

Sam&Donna Weibel said...

Blogging number one is what you feel best with if it's daily ,weekly, or a couple times a week. We will still look forward to hearing from you and the rest of us won't think any less of you, it's not a contest. We all love Ya. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

There are hundreds of different reasons for writing a blog but if it's no longer fun to do, then it doesn't make a lot of sense - at least to me. I'm sure you'll blog when you feel like it whether it's daily, every fews days or every few weeks!

Alan and Marilyn McMillan said...

We will miss your blog, but I certainly understand. I took a siesta myself -- we traveled approx 10,000 mi last year & by the end of that, I was very tired physically, mentally & just flat didn't want to blog.
BTW, in answer to your question about the chicks on my blog -- yes, it was definitely a hawk. We saw it lurking & the "barnyard" is surrounded by a hot-wire fence:(

Be safe in your travels & we look forward to a future post:)

Saw that you went to Uvalde. We are in D'Hanis/Hondo at the Lone Star Corral. We arrived last Sunday and started our new jobs on Monday. It has been a good but busy week. Where are you guys...if it's close maybe we could connect before you hit the road. Email me at ali1257@gmail.com - our cell phones don't work too well here so email is the easiest way to get ahold of us.

I agree with the others...blog when and where and how you want. I have not blogged hardly at all in the last two weeks. I do hope to post about the last of our trip and our first week here at LSC and then get into a rhythm on blogging.

Take care of yourself. That is the most important thing of all.

Judy and Emma said...

You gotta do what you gotta do as far as the blog thing is concerned!

As far as visiting when you're in this area, I'm looking forward to it. I believe I could also offer you a free spot with hookups for two nights, oh frugal one. :)

Vera said...

I felt that way awhile ago and only blog rarely now. It always was the same old same old, so I quit writing every day. It's fun to do once in awhile and I always look for your Blog. Have fun with it ☺

Donna K said...

Love your blogs but we need to remember that the point of RVing is to enjoy life and not just be tied to a computer. I'm thinking the same way...once I get on the road, I think once or twice a week is plenty if that is what works for the idividual. Let's get out there and have fun!

So, I gotta say, taking the pressure off myself (and it was a self imposed pressure) to post when I wasn't "feeling it" has been a tremendous relief!!

I'm enjoying posting when I want to share something, visiting blogs when I miss people, and commenting on theirs only when I have something to say...not just going through the motions.

We all love you Pidge, take care of yourself because only you can give yourself what you need.
