Happenings..and future plans..


I've really been enjoying my visit in California.
I think my parents have enjoyed me here too, and helping out with errands and chores.
The weekend was spent doing a little shopping, church, and watching golf :-)

Yesterday after church I took a ride up to Coyote Valley RV Resort.
We worked there last winter, and our friends Connie & Greg 
are workamping there this season.
It seemed like old times, sitting and visiting them.
We got a ride on the golf 'limo' to the country club for lunch.

Don, a workamper that was there when we were here last year did the honors.
Greg, Connie and I had a great lunch, and caught up since we saw them 
in their home state of Ohio last September.
Of course I didn't take any pictures!

When we got back to the park, Connie and I took a little walk.
I was able to say hi to our other friends, Keith & Denise,
who live here while Keith works as a CT technician.

I've been looking ahead to going home.
Since my son Adam's birthday is the 12th of February,
I've decided to fly home on the 13th.
I can spend his birthday with him, he turns 29!
I'm sure George would love to have me home by Valentine's day :-)

With my Dad's great news and improving health,
we've decided to stick to the eastern side of the US after our job in Florida.
We applied, and got, a job running the gatehouse for Clark's Hill day use park
at J. Strom Thurmond Lake in South Carolina.
We'll stay at Volunteer village, where our friends Paul & Marti, and Mike & Terri are now.
Unfortunately we don't start until the first week of May,
and they all leave in April :-(
We will work weekends and the 3 major holidays of the summer,
and get the other 5 days off a week.
After that job ends after Labor Day,
we're hoping to start a position with Amazon!


  1. Hey that sounds like an awesome schedule for the summer! You should have a lot of time for relaxing and sightseeing.

    We will be leaving TX the beginning of April and heading north to NY for the summer. We are going to spread the trip out over about three weeks, but the particulars depend on the weather. It sure would be nice after this crazy winter we've had if we had a quiet spring.

  2. Judy and I were looking forward to maybe seeing y'all out west! :-( but happy you got a nice park :-)

  3. Woohoo! Congrats on the new job. What a shame the gang will be leaving just before you arrive. Maybe they'll be able to come back and visit :)

  4. Sounds like a great plan….and a great location for the summer!

  5. Pretty great news about your dad's results. Looks like you got a nice place to WK next summer. We were there at J. Strom Thurmond COE campground last April and really like it.

  6. No worries, we'll be swinging by on occasion and looking for an October return to the COE. Great place to work! :c)

  7. Congratulations!!! You never know... we may still be here (for a little while anyway) when you get here!

  8. Nice to have the plans in place. Two days on and five off- thats what Im talking about! Good news with dad.

  9. Right now we are located at Gunter Hill COE in Montgomery AL. Man, what a nice place....would be a good workcamping experience.

  10. We will have to get together for a paddle when you get back. Congrats on the new job!
