What a year 2014 was, we decided to migrate Rollingbox.com to a platform that could better support mobile devices, that took a little over a year to move the blogs, and we still have campground reviews and RV tips to go. For now, here is a recap of 2014.
This year, our newly weds have needed a lot of support, driving home in my mind that marriage should only embarked upon once one has fully established a career that will support a couple. Moving from job to job to rental to rental is expensive financially, emotionally and physically for more than just the couple.
Well Christmas 2013 is over and we say good buy to the Seguero’s and head west while the kids board a plane and head to their home in Salem, Oregon.
Another bird taking off. Note to self: These things are loud, and smell like kerosene. He is probably on a mission to find out why the area has smog and global warming. His mission would get the best results if he did the air test while following himself. Like every man, his emissions are silent and don’t stink. Hmm, some one should noodle on this, maybe man could become self propelled.
These guys fly not stop, but they never dive for fish like their pelican counter parts. These guys have to eat regularly too. Seems they get hungry rather quickly as the return to base every fifteen minutes or so. Seems as if it would be more efficient if the emulated the feeding habits of the pelicans.
This guy missed the mouth of the bay and came in on the wrong side of the jetty at Mission beach in San Diego. The beach patrol hooked the boat to a couple pickups so it would not go anywhere while waiting for the coast guard. The police took this opportunity to write him some notes regarding a parking violation.
Well, Snow birding was short lived this year, the kids needed us back to help them with an urgent problem. Snow’s pretty, but I prefer the surf and grass of California this time of the year, grass is warmer than snow. Who knew Newport, Oregon is so darn cold in the winter.
Sarah shows us snow makes cool pop-cycles Down on the beach, first week of February. Check valve froze on the hot water heater and committed suicide. We had to remove the bypass kit, and cut the hoses and make connect them with out the bypass valve. Athena put a new check valve on the end and reconnected them to the hot water heater. Losing hot water for over a month made us real appreciative of hot water. By the way, if you have no water coming from you hot water faucet, it is probably your check valve busted.
We arrive in Seaside, we get a call stating John can’t walk. His mom flies up and gets him out of the hospital, and brings him to Seaside. I told him I would buy him Ice Cream Cake from Dairy Queen if he could get to walking again this week.
Eight hours later we arrive in Chehalis. They have a redneck slip and slide out. Just add laundry detergent and water to the tarp. The thing is slicker than snot on a wet door knob. The kids shoot down the hill like grease through a goose! We go to the Clark County fair county fair with Steve Raymond and family. It was fun.
Give a lady a gun, give here ultimate happiness.
I told him to drive fast across the dry sand when on Oregon Beaches. He did not drive fast enough. Luckily a Canadian and all of us dug the wheels out, and the county Sheriff and couple other rigs hooked him up and gave his a pull. Since the bottom of the frame was securely fastened to the sand it took a lot of fire power to get this truck out.
We deliver Holly back to John at Darker’s house where they are renting a room. This place is creepy, or really cool depending upon what you are into. It stinks to0 much for my taste, so I mostly hang in the car.
Back in Sedonna I am happier. Thanksgiving it here, Athena made turkey Twins – both are cute
We had to bring the tree inside, it kept vanishing in the night. It kept getting picked up by the wind Grinch and dropped in strange places. Sarah is the star of Christmas, and all her grandparents remembered her well.
Cocoa and games make kids happy on snowy day.
We move to Casa Grand RV Park in Casa Grand, Az. It is warmer here, and they serve free waffles in the morning. I want to be a resident for a long time like maybe a month.
We arrive a Quartzsite, and build a fire. Look at all the people who came to join us in the dirt Kids make fire We arrive in Sweetwater County park by San Diego. Our normal park is full so we wait here for it to open up. This is a very nice park.
Balboa park is our favorite free place in San diego When a woman does this, it is agape love. There is no greater. I have to look no further. She never ceases to be the Woman of my dreams.
Checking out Oceanside California Need a lot of bread to sleep in this dive
We made it to Wilderness Lakes. Athena is hooking us up. The water pipe broke a couple weeks into our stay. The repair guy said we hit it, the maintenance supervisor was able to see the bigger picture. There is a tree between the pipe and the RV. Pipe is our of reach of RV frame. Supervisor guy figures the pipe fitter forgot to let the glue dry. Anyway, they were good to us and found us a new spot on an island.
No idea what this is, thank you for spending all of 2014 with us and drifting into 2015 with our with out your expectation of sailing through time so quickly.
Have a good year and a good night
