One problem with having to be somewhere at a certain time is that you don’t have time to really stop for pictures. Mark and I had a long push today to make it for the 2nd Annual NRVIA Conference which starts tomorrow. Actually, tomorrow is a training for me and the conference itself starts on Saturday. At least we get to stay in one place for a few nights, which is lovely. It means we get to take things out of the sinks and actually use them and bump out both slide outs so that the RV feels more spacious again.
So here are today’s pictures, and remember, we were pushing so you get the pictures through the windows, including the bug-filled windshield!
There was still a little bit of light when we arrived at the Army Corps of Engineers campground where we’ll be spending the weekend. We found a site that wasn’t too sloped and got set up and spread out. One of the RVers near us who isn’t part of the Workamper Rendezvous that was going on all week said that the others were at a barbecue for closing night. We just stayed in our RV and had microwavable dinners. We’re beat! Fortunately, my training doesn’t start until the afternoon.
One last note, and this is a prayer request for those of you who are so inclined: My stepfather, Cal Stout, was diagnosed a few weeks ago with a rare form of aggressive thyroid cancer. It has already pinched off his vocal chords so that he can’t speak above a whisper. Tomorrow (Friday) he will be having surgery to have the cancer removed. Then he will require six weeks of five days a week radiation treatment. Please pray that his surgery goes well and that the treatment will cure him. Also, please include my mother, Donna Stout, in your prayers. I’m not entirely certain she wanted me to mention this here, but I figure they can use all the prayers they can get!
