Hi all! Sorry it has been so long since I have updated. I have been without Internet service for several months, but I should have it (be it off and on) for at least a couple of months.
I have gotten all of your comments recently asking for an update and from those of you that were worried. I apologize for worrying those that worried and I am now here to update. I hope you all are still with me!
Well, the end of May led me to my sister's house in Alabama. That started off okay, but got weird after awhile. I did find work there, I worked as a dishwasher for a local restaurant for a couple of months, the work was good and I enjoyed myself. I am glad I did it.
I did learn that hanging out with family for too long, well, it is just that, too long. Sometimes you find things just are not so "peachy" where you are and it is time to move on. Fortunately, in my situation, I can do just that. What a relief!
After I left Alabama, I traveled back West to see my other sister in Santa Fe, NM. This was a great experience! I got to spend a lot of time with her, my niece and my two year old great niece! That was quite a treat! For those of you used to calling my dog Goof, well, little Ms. Madeline decided her name was Poof, so I guess my dog has a new name. It is cute though, huh? LOL She was just a little doll, blond hair, blue eyes and smart! Every time she got in my truck she would say "Poof? Where are you Poof?" I sure am missing her right about now!
My sister is also quite the cook, or should I say chef? She is amazing in the kitchen and taught me so very much! My favorite spot was sitting at the counter watching her cook, then of course, being served up a spectacular dish. She could do it all so effortlessly, just amazing, really!
I had not seen either of my sisters in more than ten years, man, how different can two people be?!
I am now in Kansas, getting ready to start my first (official) work camping job. I am really excited! I am finding that I really like Kansas, it is a wonderful place. Sometimes when you travel, not only do you find wonderful places, but you also come across towns that are just...well, I don't know...off, some kinda creepy...?
I did stop in Santa Rosa, NM and eyed the blue hole. It was beautiful, if it had of been a bit warmer I would have gone for a dip. It is beautiful clear blue, a natural spring apparently. It's not very big, but an awesome sight at the same time. There were divers way down and I could see them clearly. This is definitely on my list for a visit in warmer weather! I also stopped and saw the largest cross in the western hemisphere, another sight to behold. Not just the cross itself, but the story surrounding it. I found this somewhere along Hwy 40 between Santa Rosa, NM and Oklahoma. Just something I pulled off the highway to see on a whim, if you are ever traveling the 40 and are in the area, well, you can't miss it.
I know I need to download pictures still, but I can't find my camera lately??? I know I have it, I have seen it since I took the pictures at the cross, but I am currently unable to locate it. As soon as I find it I will update this post with pictures from my travels.
Thank you to all who sent messages wanting updates on my blog, I will try and be more predicable, although that has never been one of my assets...LOL. I am sorry this one is so short, but it is about my bedtime and I really wanted to get this posted. Please keep up with me, I appreciate all the responses to my blog, I never really thought anyone would notice it! I will be back soon for more on my first work camping job to let all of you know what that experience brings...good night all!
- I got smart when I got fed up with the day in and day out of "regular" life. I retired at age 37 and bought me a truck (well, an SUV, but who wants to say that all the time?) and a 16' Scamp travel trailer and my dog and I hit the road! These blogs are about my travels, my experiences and the people I meet. I am so far loving it!
