Winter musing...
 
As I sit here, looking out to my frozen yard, ice covered BlackJack, 15 degrees, going down to zero this weekend, have not seen the sun for a week, I begin to think. What am I doing here?

Surrounded by 2 dogs and 3 cats, we all have cabin fever, Franklin is turning 12, Hershey is approaching 8 and my big 70 is next week, What am I doing here?

I have to empty BlackJack and deliver to North Carolina, send my deposit to Escape, get my hitch installed, and do my taxes, all involving money, What am I doing here?

Tuscon, Texas, Florida, all warm weather and camping right now, What am I doing here?

Jon V. has been at Quartzhite since before Christmas, the winter mecca of rv'ers
from all over, basking in the sun, What am I doing here?

Anyone else asking themselves, What am I doing here?

I ask myself that all the time Jim. The answer is inevitably "working". Were I retired, you can bet I'd be camping. The weather here allows it year round. Today's high? 84.

We're just happy we are here. Sebastian Inlet, Vero Beach, FL. real nice state park. Expect 70's this weekend.

Hot! Way too hot. Bordering on the temperature that Canadian skin starts to melt.

I "escaped" the north east 29 years ago to the mountains of North Carolina. 3 weeks ago, we got 15 inches of snow. On February 1St, I paddled my canoe in a short sleeve shirt. Last weekend, I hiked 8.5 miles in beautiful mountains. Just a short drive for warm weather camping. We live where we do because of 3 different reasons: we were born here, work brought us here, we decided to live here. I prefer the third reason.

Last weekend in Sam Houston National Forest, Cagle Recreation Area, near Huntsville, Texas. Mid-thirties in the morning, near 70F in the afternoons. Just beautiful!!

This pic I took at twilight - over the lake.
