The Journey ~

Life is a journey. Not a destination.

A warm day here and there in January and February sets me of into a frenzy of spring camping fever. Sometimes the warm day hits at a time that I can hitch up my trailer and just go, but not this year.

I had to buy a new tent canvas for my Livin Lite Quicksilver 5.0.  I don't know what happened but probably just old canvas that ripped. The new tent is under my bed and ready to be installed but in order to do that, I need 2 days of 70 degree weather. I also need to completely empty my camper!!!

So, I just look at it and dream of the little outings I'm going to take this year! Hoping to take a dog with me once in a while, too!

Merry Christmas, already?

I can't believe it's already December,  another year gone. Christmas songs are playing on the radio... "and so this is Christmas,  and what have you done? Another year over,  a new one's just begun..."   I have worked a lot of hours,  not much income, but "busy". I did NO camping except for 2 nights in my backpacking tent while traveling. I didn't see the grandchildren enough, although when I did it was great! I did SOME Zentangle,  but not enough... 

So, it is time to reevaluate and plan what to do better next year.

Goodbye K8 Kamper

This has been the most horrid camping year... I haven't taken a camper out even ONCE this year. I did spend two nights in my backpacking tent and that was nice. But owning two unused campers seemed like a bad idea. I couldn't decide which camper to sell though! I love them both. Polly is my personal retreat and K8 was good for camping with friends and family. Also nice to have that air conditioning!

Ultimately, I decided to sell K8. The decision was actually made for me. When I opened Polly up there was a large tear in the tent! I was devastated! But I couldn't sell her in that condition! Rationalizing the sale was made easier, too. By selling the larger camper, I could replace the tent on the smaller. I might even put air on her. So, Ms K8 has a new home and I hope they love her. I sent all her decor with her.

Now, it's just Polly. I ordered her tent and it is finished. It will come next week. Polly will fit into the garage. And maybe next year will be better. I still have a couple of tents for family camping...
I hear the sound of nature calling me...
