This sunset-on-the-beach brought to you by the member of the family who gets to enjoy winter in the sunny South, my Mom.  Ah, we wish we were down with her, which would mean we could camp too, altho’ FLA campgrounds are generally full in the snowbird season.

Not much going on

The winter blog sabbatical is just an indication that, while we’re busy, there is just not a lot of RV goings-on to write about.  We both had a version of the winter cold, Matthew worse than me.  The weather here since New Year’s Day has been cold & snowy; on Saturday evening we got 5”.  Fortunately we just had “our” snowblower serviced – loaned to us by members of the church that I serve who are snowbirds too – so it was ready to go!

I don’t really mind the first few snows especially around Christmas but, after awhile, the piles of dirty, gray snow-ice get depressing & we’re ready for Spring… & camping!

It did get warm enough that we had new posts, railings, & flooring put on our porch.  It looks really nice, altho’ we’ll have to stain the flooring this summer.  Of course, the new porch makes the rest of the parsonage look like it could use a coat of paint.  There’s always something to do, even in winter!


Our friends, Glenn & Tammi, have yet to send us their summer camping itinerary; we always try to camp together at least once during camping season.  We haven’t any plans for a roadtrip this year &, of course, we did sell the pop-up but…  My best friend from high school is getting married out in Tucson this November & we’re talking about going out for the blessed event so who knows how that will shape up!

Well, daylights savings time comes up in less than three weeks & the state park campgrounds here in PA open in mid-April so, with two months to go, hopefully there’ll be more to blog about soon.




A nice evening at home, Facetiming Mom, and sharing a split of Asti constituted our New Year’s Eve.

Friends in Tucson were lucky enough to go camping last night in Patagonia (AZ) but then again their overnight temps were in the 50s, ours were in the single digits. Not camping weather here in PA, even if the parks were open.  With the new year, we look forward to the camping season to come.

We wish everyone a blessed 2018!



Truly, the reason for the season – Merry Christmas!
