Before we left Wisconsin, Mark and I tried applying for several different jobs. On our trip out here, I had a telephone interview for one of the jobs I applied to. Monday morning, I went to fill out the paperwork for the background check at that company. Mark and I have been waiting to hear back from a couple of employers. Continue reading
It was 15° F when we got up this morning, but there was some sunshine, so we were encouraged. We had hoped to make it to at least Missoula, MT by tonight. Continue reading
OK, so Mark and I were talking about things today and he says we probably could have left by Sunday except that we need to stop in Green Bay to pick up a part so the RV furnace will work, and the supplier won’t be open on Sunday. It’s looking like we won’t be leaving Door County until Monday.

This also means we don’t have heat in the house because our registers run water through to heat the house. Mark called a plumber this morning and they said they’d try to make it to our house by this afternoon, but it didn’t happen. Hopefully, they can come and fix the leak tomorrow morning.

I have been fascinated by the many different types of cacti I’ve seen since we’ve been here. Today I only worked half a day and took a taxi home (more about that later), so I decided to walk around Mission View RV Resort and do some photographing… Continue reading
I last wrote on Monday and so much has happened since then… Continue reading
Today was my last day at Seaquist and my last day at Tea Thyme was about a month ago. We have a little over a week to go before we hit the road in our RV. I thought this might be a good opportunity to reflect on lessons learned this summer. Continue reading
