I feel more road trips coming on . . .


We brought her home last night about 6:30. I drove ahead in the Element to unlock the gate. Just after I passed the neighbor’s driveway, a deer bounded across the road and over the fence into the pasture.

Where it joined four others if its species.

In all there were two does, two youngsters (spring fawns) and . . .

Yes, a legal buck. Notice him keeping his head down, trying to blend in with the girls. Not very bright, to be out in the daylight this time of year. Oh, but wait a minute: deer see a single car on an otherwise deserted road and jump in front of it instead of waiting until it passes.

I was just sure that the entire bunch were going to bound back into the road and up the hill just as Tom arrived and wipe out our new pretty! And in fact, four of the five did. Fortunately he saw them and had time to stop.

Our new little home-away-from-home.

Does this picture make my butt look big?

    I like, but I am guessing that with this purchase your first trip will not be to Dixon. Oh well, I am sure to see it in the future. Happy RV’ing and making the transition back from the trailer.

      Yes, I’m afraid no Dixon. We are going down to California with it Saturday afternoon to Tuesday. Our niece Robyn is getting married on Sunday. Then we have a trip tentatively planned to Palm Springs in November. Too much time off.

      We did a fair amount of Cardi Partying in the trailer. Which was a good trailer. But the truck and trailer at 45′ total kept us out of some of the places we wanted to stay.

    Congratulations! Looks like fun. Can you tow the Element or some other small vehicle? Can’t wait to have a tour at some point.

  7. Cool! When do we get the video tour of the inside?? :-)
