Happiness Project 24

3 Comments

It’s another fun day to be alive!  Here are some happinesses from my life to yours.  

1.  Painted Rocks
You know the ones, the surprises from strangers.

New Hope
Eat More Beef painted rock
Every time I find one a huge grin spreads across my face.  Sometimes I even laugh out loud. 

2.  A real shower 
After a month of showering in the RV it was wonderful to enjoy the luxury of great water pressure, room to turn and move my arms without bumping the shower walls, and lots of hot water.  WOW! 😃

3.  Last Day at The Eclipse 
I will not be back before they close.  Actually when you read this they will be closed.   I’m happy to be here one more time.  This is melancholy happiness but happiness all the same.

Share the joy.  If you want to, tell us something that made you happy this week.

Fisheye Black and White

I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

What’s Happening in June

2 Comments

What’s going on at World HQ this month? 
1. Lots of service work:
* Air conditioner service 
* Refrigerator service 
* Engine oil and filter change 
* Onan propane generator oil and filter change
* Chassis lube
* Gas filter replaced
* Check brakes, shocks, steering stabilizer, and air dryer
* New radio
* Check house batteries 
* Fix steps 
* Maybe a new TV 📺 
The one in the bedroom has been broken for a while now.

2. Gunter Hill Campground 
This is one of my favorite campgrounds. It’s in the River Region of Alabama just outside Montgomery. Most the lots are wooded. As an added bonus, since it’s a COE campground I can stay for half price. 

3. Back in Alabama – sigh

4. Visiting with some good friends and family 

5. A beginner kayak?  
I have been shopping for a kayak. I’ve looked at inflatables, kayaks that come in sections, regular kayaks, one person, two person, sit on, sit in, life vests, paddles, and a multitude of ways to carry a kayak with a soft top Jeep or motorhome.  
I was hobbling around Gunter Hill and there was the 8′ DayLife sit on kayak. The reviews indicate it is a good beginner’s kayak.  Any suggestions?

Adventures in Nomading 

2 Comments

Two travel days in a row is tiring. But there is no rest for the weary traveler.   Another new nomadic lifestyle experience/adventure is in the making. 

Tomorrow an RV Hero is coming to service the AC units. This will be the first time they have been serviced since I’ve had the RV. The next day I’m going to visit the local Freightliner dealership. Maybe I can get an appointment. I want the brakes, the air dryer. and shocks checked.   

It is hard to set up house when the house may roll in to the shop for an unknown period of time. And there is the food in the fridge. And few as they are, all my things are in my rolling home. It is an exciting week.

The Inverter Saga

12 Comments

Chapter 10

RV Heros returned as promised. 

He replaced the starting batteries.  

and the inverter.  


Later I returned the old battery cores.  

RV Heros did a great job for a reasonable price. I would call them again.  
I’ll be here until Dec. 17 and then I’m going to Gunter Hill.

Travel Day

8 Comments

Sunday is a travel day. I’m moving from The Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale AL to Davis Bayou in Mississippi. It’s only a two hour drive. I like an easy travel day.  

I’ll head out around 11 am CST. The most exciting part that I am aware of will be the tunnel in Mobile on Interstate 10.  

I’m on a journey.
I have no destination.  
There is no time frame. 
I’m looking and seeing but not searching. 
I am not lost and can’t be found. 
I am just on my way.

 Bam!

I’ve made the mental shift.  RV Armor is putting on a new roof.  It’s guaranteed to never leak.  I’m making a $4,000 investment in this improvement.    It’s clear, I’m staying in the RV for the foreseeable future.  Bob is on the roof!


Next I’ll start remodeling the inside and the outside needs a paint job. I think that will be a job for Iron Horse.
Of course there are always the miscellaneous and expensive mechanical repairs.

It is shiny.
It’s not pretty on the outside and it’s dark in the inside.
It’s definitely easier to keep warm in here.
Hopefully a warmer inside will help keep the pipes from freezing.
Go Reflectix.

Rainy Day in Alabama

26 Comments

With all this rain, I’m getting a lot of inside time today.

I went to the post office and Dollar Store this morning. At the Dollar Store I was looking for those little drawer trays for flatware. All the ones they had were too big for the RV drawers. I did find a square canister for my coffee though. That was great.
