It has been a busy day. The morning walk was good. Just warm enough to get a good sweat but cool enough to not run sweat into your socks very much. Any way we got finished with three miles and the OFM was ready to sit and cool down.

We ended up spending several hours checking our planned general area for the fall to refresh the OFM memory of the area. We even checked the weather history for the areas to make sure we would most likely have warm enough weather to be pleasant boondocking. The way it looks we will need about seventeen months to cover everything in the area so we should have plenty to keep us happy for a while.

This painting was finally ready to show. It was suggested by a photo in south Arizona several months ago in the blog named Rolling Steel Tent. Al has an interesting blog worth checking out.

This afternoon was spent working on one of the unfinished paintings laying around the Castle waiting for attention.

The current plan when we leave grandkid land is to turn right on I-20 in Birmingham, Alabama and roll on out the other side of Fort Worth Texas. Then we check the weather and head to the better weather location in West Texas/New Mexico.

And that is where we plan to live this Fall while trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Alamogordo, New Mexico has pleasant weather throughout the winter. You could check out the White Sands National Park and the White Sands Missile Base. On holidays you get in Free. Petroglythes just up the road. Could have too many people for your ability at having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you. I have been to the White Sands facilities several times and the petroglyphs a few times. Alamorgordo gets way colder in the winter and hotter in the summer than I enjoyed but the rest of the year is is nice, I stay at Oliver Lee State Park for free or at the BLM land around there for free.

  2. 2 thumbs up on "Nothing and Nowhere"! :-)

  3. Yup, that looks like an Al picture. You did it well. I especially enjoy Al's "How I do it" videos. I love his chair, too; who says you have to buy some complicated chair designed for camping? :)
