Saturday and Sunday

Yesterday, January 26, 2013, was a rainy dreary day, so we decided to go into town.  Ray and I had lunch at La Mesa again. We sat with a couple that has been living this life style for 15 years. They just bought a new motorhome at age 86. Their philosophy was to go as long as they possibly can. I am in agreement. There is so much to see and do in this great country of ours.  We have met wonderful people from all over the U.S. and Canada.  We have been invited to visit two different couples in Canada on our way to Alaska.  We just might do that.

Ray’s eyes light up and he was asking several questions about this rig.  I kept saying to myself as he was talking NO, NO ABSOULTY NOT!!!!! The original cost two years ago was $1,500,000., now all they are asking is $450,000.  Way, way out of our range. 

In the afternoon we stopped at the Tyson’s Well Stage Station Museum.  The original adobe stage station was built in 1866. The stage station became the town center with a grocery store, logging, food, and nearby saloons.  I took a picture of the handmade quilt that was over 100 years old.

Last night we went to Silly Sal’s for pizza. About 40 other Boomers went; great food and better company. Part of the conversation was from people telling us about their experiences in Alaska.  Can’t wait to go!!

What a surprise, I ran into Monty Hadley a retired School Transportation Director from Weber School district.  It’s a small world.
After church we pulled out of Boomerville (most have already left) to join the SKP Geocaching BOF (birds of a feather) it is their geocaching rally, until Thursday morning. It has been a few years since we have done any geocaching, so this is all new to us to.  I found my first travel bug on Vern and Wendy’s rig.

Another great day!
