After moving back to the lower 48, I have bought an RV and have been living on the road.

WELCOME to the party STAugustineFL. Always good to hear from someone new.
My blog started when I was living in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. For five years I told everyone what it was like living out in The Aleutian Islands. I posted MANY photos. Just scroll back to anytime before May 2013 and you will see Alaska. After that I have done a lot of road travel in the lower 48 and have used that experience as subject matter. While in Alaska the blog had a lot o...

We landed in Keokuk, Iowa yesterday (Friday). Funny part of the state. It looks like it should be part of Missouri. There is nowhere in Iowa more south than Keokuk. It is right on the widest part of the Mississippi River. Will check all of it tomorrow. My plans are to stay here until Tuesday.

Yesterday (Friday) I took a big ride around the general area. I was looking to find a golf course with nobody playing, but the scenery was going to be enough if golf did not happen. I drove through all the big lakes around here. West to Webster, then south to CLARK. There was a nice golf course, nobody around. You had to pay by cash into a slot by the clubhouse. I had no cash, so I just moved on. I went back through Watertown, then south to Castlewood.

Their RV has the exterior TV feature which I wish I had. I thought I would have a late snack, but was not hungry and went to bed. I had a big interview next day.
I woke up miserable. Maybe the flu, but not all the symptoms. Mainl...

Pretty windy here the last week. Especially the last couple days. I already had the RV awning damaged. It has been retracted and tied back into position pretty well. Two days ago I saw that one of the awnings that extend over the slide outs when they are out was ripped by the wind. The constant wind was causing the tear to get bigger as it flapped in the wind more and more. I got up on the ladder and tried to repair it by sewing it back together. When I was d...
