Moving Day: Kearney, NE To Wichita, KS

My internal alarm clock went off WAY too early this morning…before 6:00 am.  It didn’t help that Michael was sawing logs with a buzz saw…so up I got.  I relaxed in my recliner – answering a few emails, plotting today’s route etc until Michael got up shortly after 7:00 am. With very little to do … Continue reading »

Repair and Destroy

Friday morning we woke up to 39 degrees outside and we ended up turning on the furnace for a little while to take the chill out of the air…not long….half an hour maybe.  The fireplace, on the other hand, was cranking it out all day long! We had a relaxing day at home not doing … Continue reading »

From here we will head south…our … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Austin, MN To Council Bluffs, IA

The plan was to leave the campground at 10:00 am.  We didn’t have sewer at our site so we wanted to dump before we hit the road.  We were packed up and pulled into the dump station at 9:25 and finished dumping at 9:35 so we pulled out of the park 25 minutes before our … Continue reading »

Spam!

Today was our much-anticipated visit to the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota.  We’d heard from several friends that it was a ‘must stop’ and they weren’t kidding!  Nearly everyone has had Spam at some time or another in their lifetime and this place will fill you with nostalgia! Upon entering the museum we were greeted … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Rhinelander, WI To Austin, MN

Sunday was our ‘move prep’ and errand day.  I ran to my niece’s home to some mail, dropped a small package off at the post office and went shopping at Walmart & the Dollar Store.  After I got home Michael took his turn and drove over to the brand new Kwik Trip and filled the … Continue reading »

We were up about 8:45 this morning and shortly after were in the truck headed to town (only about 2 miles away).  Our first stop was at Hardees to pick up some breakfast since we still had no power. The second stop was at Walmart so that Michael could pick up some oil for our … Continue reading »

Storm and Cousin Visit

The first storm hit about 10:00 am or so and was mostly just lots of rain.  The power … Continue reading »

A Visit with More OLD Friends

We were actually up before 9:00 am this morning….8:45!  I’m so proud of us.  We had a leisurely morning, reading, surfing, relaxing.  I made what I call “Al’s eggs” for breakfast.  My stepdad always made breakfast and one that he made often was scrambled eggs with diced up bacon.  Nothing gourmet-ish but they hit the spot. … Continue reading »
