Traveled from York, PA to Lexington, VA a week ago, following the hitch-up breakfast and Sunday service wrapping up the RVW seminar I had attended.  I was very fortunate to be able to lend a hand to the Catholic chaplain while she unhooked her rig and got set up to move out.  I think I learned more with the “hands-on” than at any other time.   Again, I met some wonderful, generous people at this seminar…people who really care about my getting a good start with lots of tips from their own experiences.

The road trip from York to Lexington was absolutely beautiful.  The following day, I completed the journey to Knoxville for my visit with my sister and her family.  J & B have a lovely ranch-style home on a hill in north Knoxville…a great place to enjoy the forest in their back yard.  They live right on the “Dogwood Trail” that is quite popular doing blossom season.  The most important members of the family are Cooper and Foster, a couple of Labradoodles who are very loving, intelligent, and funny.  I am seriously considering this breed for my own companion some day.

Monday morning I leave for Heber Springs, Arkansas at the crack of dawn.  The third seminar is all about “Workamping,” a subject I am very keen on getting to know much more thoroughly.  I know nothing about this area of Arkansas, so I’m excited to be discovering a new area again.  I will be extending my stay for a day so I can attend the bonus session on finances, taxes, and insurance for RVers.  Looking forward to it!  I will keep you posted on my progress.
