Special Post

Riverton, Utah        High 97 Low 70

Warmer still! It is almost too hot to go outside.

According to Blogger this my 1000th Post.

We started blogging just before Cindy retired at the end of 2012. We had decided to keep tabs on our retirement trip to Alaska during the summer in our fifth wheel. We took the month of May getting to Alaska then 3 months in Alaska. Unfortunately Cindy hurt her back while we were in Homer and as a result she was laid up for the month of July which we spent in Soldotna.

Fortunately the salmon were running all month and I like to tease Cindy by telling people that she made me go fishing every day while she stayed in bed.

After our time in Alaska we spent about 2 months getting back to Utah.

The next year (2014) we went east across the top of the US then down the east coast to Florida. We missed Rhode Island where we still haven’t been with the trailer. While we were in Pennsylvania we bought Penny and she has traveled with us since. From Florida we went across the Gulf Coast ending in Texas. When we got to San Antonio it was so cold that we decided to head back to Utah.

The next year (2015) we went to visit the center part of the country to visit most of the rest of the states. Right now we have had our trailer in 48 of the states. We would have a hard time driving to Hawaii and still haven’t visited Rhode Island.

The highlights of 2016 were the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque and that we bought our 2nd home in Yuma where we now spend the winter. We had previously spent the summer with Cindy’s Mom and sister going to the wood carving in Canada.

Summer of 2017 we went with Linda and Cindy’s Mom getting as far as Ohio before heading home. And of course we spent the winter in Yuma.

So far this year we made the trip to the Washington and Oregon coasts with our fiver.

Today my youngest son, Nick’s wife Susie had their 2nd child, a son, and they named him Henry. He makes grandchild number 20.

We hope to be able to keep traveling in the summer for a while.

Thanks for visiting.
