About Us

Chris and Dennis are traveling around the country seeing the sights and occasionally volunteering at select locations. We avoid the interstate as much as we can and tend to stop for squirrels and shiny objects.

Sore Muscles

Today was a traveling day and frankly it was needed. Both Chris and I probably over did it the last couple of days trying in vain to reduce our belongings and continue to get the house ready to sell. Fortunately, the gang from work (hey RiverCom!) and some other shoppers jumped on some outstanding deals on our furniture. The library was on the receiving end of 6 or more large boxes of paperback books and Goodwill can easily clothe a number of people - provided they weren't adverse to some out of fashion styles (hey, bell bottoms were cool!). We aren't finished but the end is in sight and when we return from the motorhome's appointment in Oregon we'll knock it out in no time.

Today's travels meant neither one of us lifted a bail or toted a barge. Our entire focus was putting miles behind us while avoiding interstates, traffic, and little green men. We did manage to avoid the little green men and our sojourn on the interstate was about 5 miles. The only traffic was the 3 cars held up at one construction site for all of 5 minutes. The scenery? Let these photos say it - It was a most excellent traveling day.

Unfortunately, with the traveling came the inevitable stiffing of the muscles; so much so there were times we wondered if we would be able to move. Anyone remember Tim Conway and the skit he would do as the little old man shuffling?  Yep, that was us. Sore arms, sore backs, sore feet and other sore muscles science hasn't even discovered yet. Doesn't matter though, today was a traveling day.

Tomorrow perhaps we'll go visit Mount St. Helens. Or not. We are currently at Paradise RV in Silver Creek and rumor has it the fishing is pretty darn good in the area. Maybe we'll do that. One thing is for sure, the sore muscles will get a rest.
