It’s hard to believe three weeks have passed since I last updated this blog. We’ve been busy and now we’re tired.
Here are some highlights:
Shamu, our motor home was looking a little tired so I decided some soap, water, polish and wax would solve the problem. For those that have washed a motorhome, you know it’s not a trivial task. If you also wash the roof , it can be an exhausting all day task. Not wanting to take any shortcuts, I opted for all of the above plus added in a polish job and wax on the aluminum wheels and a full body wax job. It only took about a week.
Friday, September 25 we drove to Newark, Delaware where we visited with friends Rufus and Susan Barbour.
They have a great driveway where we stayed the night. These folks are life long friends so it’s always great to catch up. Susan recently had lap band surgery and has lost 50+ pounds so far. We’re proud of the progress and enjoyed her improved state. Rufus has been busy as usual with projects including his new equipment to manufacture bio diesel from used vegetable oil and the
new solar system on the roof. (see photo below)
He’s making electricity like you wouldn’t believe.
Saturday, September 26 we drove on to Hershey, PA. where we enjoyed a few days of R & R. On Tuesday we went to Roots to the farmers market where we loaded up on produce and deli items. This is always a fun stop because of the great variety and quality of vegetables and of course the great prices.
Thursday, October 1 we traveled to Williams Grove race track where we enjoyed a long weekend of World of Outlaw racing, car shows and auto swap meets in Carlisle with motor homing friends in the FMCA Dogwood Chapter.
We co-hosted the event so some work was involved but it always seems worth the effort when everyone has a good time. Mother nature cooperated with good weather except for Friday night when the race was rained out.
Sunday, October 4 we traveled on to Gettysburg where we visited with friend Gerry and Larry Clark. We went to the Apple Harvest Festival in Arendtsville, PA where Carolyn and Gerry enjoyed the crafts and Mann and Larry enjoyed the Car Show. It was a real nice event. Monday, we spent the afternoon introducing the Clarks to geocaching in the Gettysburg area. We had a good time and I think the Clarks did too. Here’s a photo taken when they found their first cache.
Tuesday, returned to Midlothian VA home. Man has doctors appointments and Carolyn has he high school reunion next weekend.
