Sorry I missed a couple of days’ blogging, but I had loaded Window’s 7 on both our laptops and it refused to find the Wi-Fi hot spots. Neither would it accept my Verizon air card. I will have to do some checking on this problem before I hit the road the next time.
We usually have some problem pop up and this trip was no exception. Somehow the key in the ignition of the Jeep didn’t get turned far enough to unlock the steering and the front wheels were turned slightly to the left. After we had gone over 20 miles or so a truck past us and the guy pointed down and back. OK, I figured something was amiss, so I pulled over. I walked all around the RV and couldn’t see anything. Then I noticed the front tires on the Jeep had the tread ripped off of them on right side of the tire. That is when I discovered the problem. I think I will purchase two new tires and put the least damaged one on as a spare. My spare looks new but it is 8 years old and weather cracked.
We got to Eagles Rest RV Park late in the afternoon on Thursday. It is very nice and the people who run it are fantastic. It has a stocked lake with bass, catfish, and everything else. It also has shooting ranges for both a rifle and handguns. The shorter handgun shooting range has retrievable targets on wire pulleys so you don’t have to walk down the range to retrieve them.
After we arrived we telephoned Sixbears and he said that he would be free the next morning and he and his lovely wife would come see us at the park. My wife and I were excited about meeting them and since they live in
I would doubt that we would bump into them very often. New Hampshire
First I will show you some roses growing at the park:
And looking past the roses at my RV:
The next day was wonderful. Sixbears, his wife, and dog Brownie came for our face to face visit. It was just so fantastic meeting such wonderful and interesting people. After the first few words out of his mouth, I new that I would really like that guy. The only down side of the visit was two of our three dogs did not care for visitors. I was so ashamed at my “children” for their almost constant barking. I sure hope they didn’t upset our three guests. Brownie was just so good, whish our dogs would have been. They just are not used to getting company.
Anyway, how about some pictures? Here is the Sixbears family:
And of course I had to get in one of the pictures:
And there perfectly behaved dog, Brownie:
We had no problem getting home yesterday afternoon. Even swung into the flea market and I picked up a great book on birds. All told, it was a great few days and if you ever have a chance to meet Sixbears and his family, do so. They are just fantastic people. Now you all have a great day today, you hear?
