The very HOT weather is due in day after tomorrow.  Over 100F type of misery. That means the A/C will be running up the electric bill.  Nothing much happened today. We started a nice walk this morning but it quickly evolved into a gentle inside the campground quick paced stroll.  One hip and both knees were being difficult so the tone of the stroll was gentle but we still got in about a mile and a half total.  

The rest of the day was painting and thinking about our near future traveling. The big decision made this evening is that tomorrow will be a day to cook some chicken in BBQ sauce, acquire some potato salad and use the salad makings we have to construct some great meals for the next couple of days.

Of course some more painting is going to happen. The OFM is really happy to be getting on with a new painting project.  With the HOT weather we doubt a lot of hard outdoor activity will be happening during the afternoon and evening.  So take a hint from the OFM Adventures Blog and kick back and stay in the cool A/C if it is hot where you are.

We have noticed that in the last month most of the folks coming into the campground must not be around full timers very often.  They all seem to be very interested in where your real house is.  When the OFM tells them and points to the Castle, they have trouble comprehending that a person does not have to have a building stuck to some dirt somewhere to be happy person. Long ago we quit trying to explain why we live without a structure some where to maintain and pay expenses for not using it.

In the meantime find a cool comfortable place for trying to have tooooo much fun during the HOT weather.


  1. Don't come here as they are saying 100 by June 9th...

  2. 107 is forecast for us next week. AC is going to get a real workout.

  3. Head to the mountains of Colorado to stay cool and its beautiful!

  4. I'll bet most years full timers have gone somewhere with better temps by now so the locals never see them camping. This is not "most years"....

  5. When you mention trouble with your Hip and Knees it could be due to the way you are walking. Most people walk with their toes pointing outward from their line of travel causing your joints to be misaligned. You will have to watch your feet that the toes going straight forward in the direction of your travels. It is a matter of retraining yourself to walk to get rid of the Aches and Pains.
    Painting while keeping comfortable is a great way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the changing season.

    It's about time.
