Our Summer Adventure Begins!

We named our new 5th wheel travel trailer "The MotherShip"! So many of our camping friends camp with the smaller Casita's and Oliver's that now when it's freezing cold outside, or raining we can all gather inside The MotherShip for good conversation and a game of dominoes!

I can hardly believe how busy we have been since we got back in Florida late November!  Time flies! We put new floor down in the house! We spent Thanksgiving with family! We got married in January! We went camping in freezing weather with Pete Marks, Oscar and Tom and Karen Whaley. We went down to Bradenton again to celebrate grandaughter Aubrey's second birthday in Feb. We went down to Cape Coral to visit my cousins Danny and Annette Morgan. They had just sold their house there and were moving up to Myrtle Beach SC! Then we went to Dade City to visit my doc who was very happy with my weight loss since lap band 2 years ago, We met up with friends Paul and Diane Thibodeaux several times. We spent several weeks visiting Florida State Parks Myakka River and Highlands Hammock! We spent months looking for new travel trailers and bought our MotherShip in March, went back to Bradenton to celebrate Glorianne's 40th??? birthday and 8 weeks after we left we were back in Eastpoint!
 We had to go back to Crystal River where we bought The MotherShip to get an awning installed over the slideout. Darn! The factory sent the wrong size! But the time was not wasted! We and our friends Randy and Nancy Fife, owners of the Nature Coast RV where we bought this beautiful 5th wheel and they also own the wonderful campground across the road "Quail's Roost! We all went down to Homosassa and met Sherry and Paul Cavannaugh at a great restaurant called The Freezer. Amazing!  It is as much unlike a restaurant as you can imagine! Most of it is outdoors under a Seminole built Chickee! See the link below!

We went on Wednesday night, steak night! It was packed with people! You gotta stand around and drink beer until a table or a place to sit becomes available! Tough huh ??? It's right on the water... you just have to go there one day to experience it! Everybody got steak but me, I got snow crab legs and they were YUM!
We then went over to Leesburg to visit with niece Dawn, her husband Dan and daughter Danea. We got home yesterday, Sunday, so now our Florida days are numbered... well over! It's time to head out. But while we were coming home yesterday, we got a call from Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood AZ asking us if we would like to work there as camp hosts from Aug until end of Oct! Sooooooo of course we want to!  Soooo now here is our planned trip so far... 

1. Lake Greeson Arkansas for Jugfest 2010 our catfishing camping families meet there!  We can't wait to see all of you again!
2. Branson MO to check out the possibility of winter Workamping jobs and to listen to country music live!
3. Spearfish SD to visit Paul and Diane Thibodeaux who will be workamping there for the summer and possibly we will apply to work there next summer!
