Preparing for liftoff.... slowly.

Today I spent some time online and on the phone checking out long term campgrounds in the Verde Valley, Arizona.  I found a couple that were quite reasonable.  Then I started thinking about little comforts I now enjoy, like unlimited internet and satellite TV.  Comparing costs between DirecTV and Dish Network, and upping my data plan from Verizon.  Gads.  With DirecTV you have to invest mucho dinero in a fancy receiver.  I don't think that's gonna happen.  With Dish, the receiver is $150, but it sits on the ground.  We could probably use the satellite box we already have.  I'm not ready to make those arrangements yet, still gathering information.

The tornadoes have certainly been on my mind.  They scare me to death!  We were thinking of spending time in Texas, but now I'm not sure.  We may just stay west of the Rockies because I'm such a wuss.

Watching a video of Harv Presnell singing "They Call the Wind Mariah."  It seems appropriate. Saying prayers for all those effected by the storms.

Well, hello again.....

I haven't posted in almost a year!  I had some health problems that just knocked me flat.  However, I am much better now and actually getting ready to hit the road.  Unfortunately, I'm not back to where I used to be, so it will have to be Two Wolves and a Lion.  My dear husband is traveling with me, and my lion dog has changed.  I had to rehome my big poodles because their grooming and maintenance was too much for me.  Now I have a little bark lion sentinal dog from Tibet, a Lhasa Apso named Wicket.  He is 13 1/2 weeks old and is just so cute!  He looks like a little Ewok.

We have also gotten a bigger travel trailer, selling the 21 footer and getting a 25 footer.  Four feet doesn't sound like much, but it is enough to provide a separate bedroom.  And, this one has a slide and that also adds a lot of space.  It is a lot smaller than our house, and I really dread having to sort through all my stuff, but I have a few months to get it done.  I hope to be heading out in early fall because I really don't want to do another winter in the cold.

I know I had originally wanted a truck and a 5ver, but finances just wouldn't stretch that far.  So, we've repaired and upgraded our old Durango, and promoted it to tow vehicle.  We plan to stay places at least a month at a time to get a feel for the area.  When we find just the right place, we'll settle back down.  Who knows how long that will take?  Maybe just this side of forever.

Pictures soon.

Song for this afternoon is "On a Clear Day"....

On a clear day, 
rise and look around you, 
and you'll see who you are.
On a clear day, 
how it will astound you
That the glow of your BEING outshines every star.
