Murdo Girl…We’re off and walking

Last night…

See Ya is heading west tomorrow. We’re going to spend a couple of days in Wyoming so we can see our son, Mason, and his family. We also get to see at least one of the two grandsons play in a couple of football games. I’m excited!!

When we leave Wyoming, we’ll head east. We will travel Route 2, which borders Canada in some places, with the ultimate destination being Maine. We are hoping we have timed it right to see the leaves turn.

I spent yesterday and this afternoon detailing the inside of the RV. See Ya is sixteen years old and has taken us on three previous six to eight week trips and numerous short getaways. She still cleans up pretty good.

It was late when I finished. Sorry for the dark pictures. I didn’t have lights. I used an extension cord to vacuum as we don’t have the high voltage electricity in the RV port installed yet.

The next day – Monday

We finally got all packed up and Kip hooked the jeep up to See Ya. He wiped out our mailbox in the process, but if you are aware of my far worse crack-up last week, you’ll know why I didn’t say anything. If you’re not aware of my mishap, let me just say I’m fine, but Kip’s truck is no more.

I can imagine how worried some might be that we’re going to be on the road for six to eight weeks. I’m sure it will all be fine as soon as we’re able to get See Ya’s motor to shut off. Yes, you read me right. The engine wouldn’t shut off, so we drove straight to Rick’s RV near Kaufman. Rick had done some work on the connector from See Ya to the Jeep we tow. It enables the turn and brake lights to work in conjunction with the RV… They might have it fixed. We’ll know as soon as Kip gets back from Kaufman. He had to go get a new battery for the jeep. I stayed here with the three dogs and a very worried cat.

Well, Kip got back and we’re off again. It’s 1:37 and we’re almost to Dallas.

We had to stop for a minute because the automatic steps didn’t automatically go back in. We slammed the door a few times and that seemed to fix it. At the moment, everything is working just fine.

We’re having a great time. If we were home, it probably wouldn’t have been a day to remember.


My bad haircut still looks pretty good considering what I’ve been through.

    Oh good, you’re off. Hope you have your passports…if you end up in Canada, you may not be able to come back. Best wishes on your travels and I’ll put out a warning to all mailboxes on your route.

    Love your title! There’s something about heading out on a major trip that helps one conquer all obstacles, big or small.
    Talked with Bobby and Mark today and Bill is traveling so it’s your turn.

      I agree nothing can stop you from getting out of town! Billy text me a picture of him with Kim and Tammy Lindquist. I haven’t heard about the dinner!
