We got farther than anticipated today. Mark was able to drive about seven and a half hours, but with stops it was over a nine hour day. He thought about pushing even farther, but by the time we got to Omaha the sun had set so we stopped. We’re making up for lost time! Continue reading
We woke up in the RV in our driveway this morning and finished the last of what we needed to get ready to roll. We pulled out of our driveway at 11:40 this morning. Yay! Continue reading
We are still at home. Never having winterized a house before, Mark spent the day trying to drain all the water. I loaded a bunch of stuff into the RV and got the house clean, but the RV needs to be organized and Mark still has stuff to put in the RV as well. Now we are aiming to leave sometime tomorrow morning. At least we will be sleeping in the RV tonight as there is no water in the house. Hopefully by tomorrow night, I’ll be reporting from somewhere else!
The night before last, Mark and I made a list of everything we need to do before we can leave. Yesterday we worked on it all day and only accomplished a little less than half the list. Today we worked on it and got most of the way through the remainder, but there is still some left. Continue reading
For those of you who knew that we were planning to leave on November 1st, I just want to let you know we are now aiming for the 2nd. We didn’t get through the long list of things we needed to do yesterday. Hopefully we can finish by tonight. Continue reading

Had we been there this year, Monday would have been our last day of work and we would have likely been heading out yesterday. All day Monday, I was thinking about my friends at Wagon Trail and wishing I could be with them at their staff party, but I’m not staff there anymore. Continue reading
I have already begun thinking about next year’s employment, and in fact, I have a new part-time job lined up for next summer. Last year I went through the training to become a Certified Tourism Ambassador and I love talking about Door County, so what could be more natural than working in the Ellison Bay Information Center? Here is something from the newsletter my new boss, Mickie Rasch, sent out: Continue reading
When I was a kid, my friends and I used to sing a spoof on the National Anthem:
O say can you see any bed bugs on me?
If you can, pick a few, for I got them from you!
You may recall that I gave Liuda her first driving lesson in July and then another one in August. It has been difficult to coordinate with her for driving lessons, especially since she has been sick for the last three weeks. She told me today that she has pneumonia. Continue reading
