A little closer to home

We’ve been travelling, heading home to Wisconsin. Four states yesterday. We started in Las Vegas.

Headed into Arizona. Once again, we did NOT see the Grand Canyon. Maybe one year.Then through Utah. Such a beautiful state! We stopped at some of the lookouts along the way. I love it there.

Then we stayed the night in Grand Junction Colorado. The Travellodge was a nice little spot to sleep. Friendly staff and quiet.

Now we’re on our way again. Rolling down route 70. I’ll see where tomorrow brings us!

While driving, I’ve been reading Leopard’s Run by Christine Feehan and checking out the scenery.

On the road!

So excited!

Niagara Falls here we come! Heading up into Canada in our new (to us!) RV. I hear it is spectacular from the Canadian side, plus, I’m dying to use my passport!

Hopefully if I ask, they will punch my passport on the border.

In the meantime, my hubby and I are sending in our concealed carry permits for Ohio. That will allow us to carry in almost all states west of the Mississippi. And we still have to get our fingerprints for the Florida permit and send that in.

No worries! We are both US Navy veterans. My specialty was Small Arms Marksman Instructor so I’m very familiar with guns!

Here I am working on an M14 rifle. Photo op, lol. I was in the paper in Seattle WA many, many moons ago!

We figure, better safe than sorry. We want to travel around the US when we retire. Both of us are planning on going by 2020. We’ve had our RV in the shop for the last two weeks for updating. We bought it but knew that there were a few issues. It was built in 1991 after all!

Luckily, the local RV repair fit us in. NOT that we are not paying for it, lol. Not any more than I expected though.

So, I’m going to finish packing. We’re preparing food ahead of time so we only have to pop casseroles in the oven and stocking up for s’mores. You can’t possibly not have a campfire even if you are in an RV!

from me to you! fun is coming!

Oh I’m excited! I didn’t post anything yesterday because I hardly spent any time at home. I’ve been on the hunt for something in particular. We finally found it! We had to go get it and it was a 4 hour round trip. So, here are the pictures.

We are so excited to finally get an RV! 28 foot, bed in back and over the cab and even the dinette can be a bed for munchkins.

 

It even has a bathroom! You may assume that is normal-I did too. Until I found post after post selling RV’s that people had removed them for more storage. Yeah… storage vs. private bathroom. Nope, call me not interested! One even had it removed and added bunk beds. They had to be really small!

Finally, finally, after close to a year of searching we found one we both liked. So, now we can take the RV to Niagara Falls for vacation. And I’ll check out to see if there are campgrounds close to the book signing in Iowa in August.

For now, we’ll be outfitting it. Getting a couple of things checked out and adding. My hubby wants a rear view camera. After driving it two hours home in the pouring rain, I have to agree! That will be one of the first purchases, besides sheets.

So, I’ll try to keep writing while I have a new too to play with.

From Me to You ~ On vacation

I’m on vacation! I finished my desk in time to get it into the house, out of the path of the incoming storms. Then we left! I’ve been to Hershey PA. Awesome. Chocolate. What more is there to say?

I wanted to dive right in looking at that, but they had a glass wall between it and me. Probably a good idea!

We made it to our hotel late Wednesday night in Philadelphia and got up for breakfast. Googling where to go, we found a diner that had been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Of course we had to start there!

The Metro Diner was awesome! I had my all time favorite, Eggs Benedict. With spinach, avocado and tomato, I ate until I was ready to burst. Yes, I’m one of those people that post what I eat on Facebook!

Our original purpose was to go to Sesame Place. Sesame Street come alive! My granddaughter had a ball! We had fun too. She had her pictures with all her favorite characters and we had dinner with Elmo, Cookie, Grover and the favorite, Abby. She knocked out at 7:00 pm and I don’t expect her up for the rest of the night.

 

Of course, Mommy is sleeping next to her and Grandpa fell asleep in the chair, lol. Here I am typing away and contemplating another cup of coffee. Even if I have to walk to the office for it.

Of course her sleeping through the night was too much to hope for!

Tomorrow it’s off to see the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the battleship New Jersey. It’s now a museum. I remember seeing it steam out of the harbor on Westpac. Sigh… I’m really not old!

If it is not too late, we’ll head back to Sesame Place and let the little one run around on the waterpark side. But, it appears the rain has followed us and is predicted tomorrow. Ugh!

I’m busy, too, continuing Finding Faith. I think I’m going to have to read over it. I feel I’m getting a bit repetitive and need to make sure I’m moving the story along!

On another note, I’ve decided to start a street team, Bev’s Babes. It is in a secret group on Facebook, so if you are interested, please let me know!

Have you read my latest hero? A sexy dragon shifter – Kai!

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.
