On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!

It has turned into a nice sunny day here. I was thinking about trying to play some golf. It is only 46 degrees, but calm and sunny makes all the difference. It is very different from yesterday.
A cold front came through during the night. The best part was the wind. I was laying in bed around 4AM listening to it. It reminded me of some of those long nights in Dutch Harbor. I can't remember hearing wind that loud in Kentucky. There are big trees all...

Six feet of snow in Buffalo, New York. That is a lot of snow, even for Buffalo. I would rather have a ton of snow versus a lot of COLD. Dutch Harbor had a LOT of snow, but not so cold.
I spent two weeks years ago in Rochester training for a new job in Chicago. In JANUARY. Naturally, a huge snow storm came through. I was staying right in downtown Rochester, and we ate our dinners at local restaurants. It snowed all day that Day Of The Blizzard. We...

A couple nights ago it got down below 20 degrees. I disconnected from the water hookup. There was still a little water in the system that froze, and I was without any water in the RV for a day and a half. Yesterday it warmed up enough to give me a thaw, so I have water for now. But tonight I disconnect again as a new cold front comes through. It is supposed to get down to the low teens. That goes for a couple days, on Wednesday it will get up to around 40 agai...

We went to a charity dinner a few nights ago, where MOM got the signature from Rick Pitino. There was a blind auction. I put in a couple bids, low, just to test the waters. One bid was on a bicycle. I know nothing about bikes, but it had a well known name to it - Huffy - so what the hell? I was at $70 bucks and it was hanging in there, which surprised me. At the last minute someone had bid $75, so I put in $80 and I felt pretty good.
But afterward w...

Not a lot of excitement happening right now. Taking care of some personal business mainly.
The KOA is almost empty now. They turn off the water at most of the sites this week, so I had to move yesterday to a new site that is available and has water. Now Dutchie comes and goes while we are in view of the RV office. Nobody has said anything and probably will not. The manager and I had a bit of an argument a couple weeks ago when he screwed up a transa...
