Christmas, 2017

Christmas, 2017

We are sending our warmest wishes from “Up North” to all of our Foretravel Friends and to those who are traveling along with us on our blog.

It has been another wonderful year for us. We were able to get to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah last winter and Wyoming and Oregon this past summer and everywhere in between. We visited with FT friends in the Tucson area, fought off a rattlesnake at McDowell Mountain and spent two amazing weeks in Zion National Park. We managed to see the big solar eclipse in a wide open space in Grand Teton National Park, spend a month on the Oregon coast and meet our great great nephew Ryan when we were in Oregon. He was just 2 months old. That makes us great greats. Sounds old.

We added solar panels on the coach this past summer along with some new batteries and other parts that now let us stay pretty much anywhere we want for almost as long as we want without running the generator or being plugged in. Eventually we run out of water or fill up our waste tanks but for a week in the Tetons and a week up in Yellowstone – we were off the grid.

This coming winter will find us in the Texas Hill Country for a while and then closer to home this summer so we can catch up on some of the tasks at home that make it so appealing to be here when we are. There is always room for visitors if you are up this way.

All of you help make this RV experience better for us. Thank you! We have been blessed to make so many new acquaintances and some very dear friends.  Many of you we have actually met, many are in the still-to-meet group but we are working at it.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Here’s to the magic of the season and a happy, healthy 2018!
