As you can see, our travel blogging is grossly behind our itinerary. We are more than two weeks into the trip and have not posted a single entry regarding our great American road tour!  The first few days we were dealing with many "surprises" (see next entry) during what we are now fondly calling our shakedown period.  But we also are finding that the idea of being electronically connected with all of you isn't working as easily as we thought. 

I had envisioned creating the entries on the laptop while Jim drove – but that assumes that there is nothing better to do and, believe me, the scenery is too gorgeous here to not be viewing.   So, then, the next best option is to do it in the campground at night.  But that doesn’t account for a full day of sightseeing, supper and planning for the next day – with playing games or sitting by the campfire thrown in!  And, to be honest, sometimes you are just too darn tired to think and write!

The other obstacle has been actually putting the entries online.  We have been in areas without cell service for a majority of the time – which means that our air card won’t work.  By preference, we have stayed in a lot of National Forest Service campgrounds, because they are more scenic, less crowded and a lot more friendly to our retirement budget! 

OK, enough with the excuses!!  Just be forewarned that the entries may be far apart time-wise. 

We hope you are enjoying the blog.  Please remember that we would love to either have comments from you on the blog or if you want to send private messages, send us an email.  


p.s. I've changed the dates on entires from not when I write the entries, but the date of travel.
