Travel

For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Teresa's son and Grandson (Sean and Sawyer) arrived late Friday night. The little guy slept in Teresa's Aframe BUT Sean slept here BY CHOICE! Oh to be young again!

Here they are chowing down. Sean cooked dinner and breakfast for his Mom. I wish his wife, Kate, and their other two little ones had come--they are as adorable as Sawyer is. They are a good looking family, aren't they?



 I found myself getting a little teary saying goodbye to Molly--took me by surprise. I loved putting my face in her fur and nuzzling her--not just because it reminded me of Lizzie and Jack, but because I love her. I've known her since she was a pup. Teresa is an excellent dog Mom. It's as though they read each other's minds. Molly is losing her hearing, so her eyes are always on Teresa.

As I was typing this blog I got an email from T. I didn't realize she was taking pictures. This is Sawyer and me walking down to my trailer. We were discussing why it's impolite to walk through other camper's sites. He was funny. He went in the trailer and looked at the bathroom door and asked me, "What's that." I told him to open the door. He did and said, "Hmmm. Small." Very cute and polite. Little boy. He knows all about planes and ships. I asked him how he knew so much and he said, "Books."



This is another sneaky shot by Teresa. That's Patricia with the hat. Boy, do I need a haircut! Not today. Bogey and I are lounging around except for about every hour when he wants to go out to play ball.

The next two pictures are pictures from my hike along the river. Pretty, isn't it?



This picture is attributed to Teresa. I watched all week to get a shot of the buzzards. I only saw them high overhead. Teresa has a keen eye and is a good photographer--that's how she got a picture of this guy.


Patricia took this one as we all took a walk, together. Seems funny. When I used to walk with a group of women there was almost always more pups than people.

Take down couldn't have gone smoother, yesterday. Everything from A-Z was easy. The only small problem I had was that I couldn't get my patio mat back into the bag. My old one I could fold up to a very small package. This one is a different texture. I tried it every which way, but it was no go. So, instead of putting it back in the storage area, I had to put it in the trailer. The 3-1/2 hour trip home went smoothly and passed by quickly. Although my radio doesn't work, I took the Bose speaker that my son, John, gave me and I blue toothed it to my iPhone so I had all my favorite music playing the whole time.

Till next time.

  1. I'm so glad you had such a wonderful wonderful time. It's so neat that you have such great friends. I still get teary eyed every day over Scooter. But Skitz got sick last night and threw up all over the bed. Maybe one old dog is okay.

    1. Yes, I am very fortunate to have such good friends (including you and Jim). Dogs are funny. Both of mine and Bogey run to the only rug I have in the house to upchuck. I almost pulled the trigger in Colorado. Just not ready, yet. Besides, Bogey keeps me busy. I feel badly that I can't take him camping, but he's hard to handle and won't listen if he sees a squirrel or deer--I'd be so afraid I'd lose him. So, though he's not mine, I make adjustments for him.

    1. Oh, sweet Karen. I think I may go over Christmas. Bogey has me pretty well tied up until then, and of course, Thanksgiving is in the middle of everything. Thanks for reading. :)

  4. Boy are you tech savy. I worked in computers most of my adult life but since I retired I have resigned all technology. I could not even begin to hook up my speakers with blue tooth to my iphone Good for you! Love seeing you in a campground and walking down a trail. How wonderful!

    1. I worked with computers. I've forgotten more than I once knew, but I can generally figure things out. It feels wonderful to be able to walk, though it's not without upper back pain (the only part that hasn't had surgery) Doc said many times surgery on the lower back will put strain on the upper back. I'm going to make an appointment with the pain clinic to see if they have any magic tricks in their bag for that. If I don't walk, I'll be sitting for the rest of my life. Thanks for stopping, Sherry.

  6. Another good trip under your belt with your new camper. I know how long you have waited to get out there again.
    Your friends family sure are a good looking crew.
