Six Months of Travel to 11 Campgrounds

Out there things can happen, and frequently do,
To people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don't worry, don't stew.
Just go right along, you'll start happening too!” 
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Early on when I bought my motorhome, I read on someone else's blog that they took a picture of everywhere their camping rig spent the night. That sounded like fun advice, so I started doing the same thing. I also keep a log book near my driver's seat. It's a mess, only I can read most of it, but it shows my mileage, where I stop to camp  and some other foolishness like fuel purchases so I can figure out the average miles per gallon (frightening!)

Maybe I don't get far, don't go fast, but each day I wake up alive is a miracle.

I am very thankful for you my readers and angels who have encouraged me to keep rolling along in spite of the chaos of a body that is failing fast, and an old rig that is cantankerous. I really have no complaints, I remind myself all the time, "Be happy, be grateful!"

I am super grateful for the wonderful folks like you that give me hope and cheer me onwards. Amazing that I have survived over 5 years in a little old motorhome, 28 feet by 7 feet of tiny home sweet home. The living space is efficient but I have a roof over my head (it still has one annoying leak I just can't find!) but life ain't perfect but it sure is sweeeeeeeeeeeeet.

THANK YOU for stopping by today! Thank you for your subscriptions and donations. You have kept one eccentric mermaid and her crazy little dog smiling for miles.

Someone said I should write campground reviews, but I am afraid I would sound so repetitious such as "Small rig friendly, love it here!" I seem to fall in love with every place I camp. My doggy is the same way, he is excited to arrive and never happy to leave but at the next place he is wildly enthusiastic to arrive.

I tried to make a map of the past six months but google folks have decided to eliminate the map program that worked and replace it with a "new" one that doesn't work. So another techno mess for me. Those folks at google have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on their hands to be messing up everything like this. Last week or so they messed up my bookmarks with some newfangled program so that I can't find a thing anymore, can't save stuff the way I like to (simple!) and well just wrecked my super simple easy system. I found a way to force it to revert back, but I have no confidence that at some point google will force the new system back on me against my will.

Today I was searching for a way to use the former map program that worked for me (the new one doesn't work for me at all!) and I found a petition to ask google to bring back the working map program. I have no delusions that they will listen to the lowly customers, but I signed it anyhow. You can sign it at this link too.

  1. I share your frustration and dislike of the new Google maps. The old version worked so well. I don't know why they decided to change them and leave out many of the good features. I signed the petition about a week ago - don't think it'll do much good though.

    What happens with your bookmarked maps? I've seen other people complaining about an issue with their bookmarks but I haven't noticed anything. Now I'm worried that all of my work will just disappear one day without any warning!
