Why We Do It, More Research and Making a List.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Reading other RV Blogs lately I was surprised to find Comments stating to the Blog’s author that they had better find something more interesting to write about or that person would no longer be reading it. Those persons that made those statements just doesn’t seem to understand the true meaning of what a Blog truly is. A Blog is a Diary, Log, Ledger, a Record or an Accounting of what took place in the author’s life during a specific period of time. These are not stories that were dreamed up to entertain someone else’s passing moments.

These Blogs most times are created for the purpose of Friends and Family Members to know what their loved ones are up to when they are away but many are open to whoever wishes to read them. Another way of saying it would be they are making their lives an “Open Book” for the world to read. A diary of there every day lives!  Every day life is not always very entertaining but what we do accomplish might be enough to bring a Smile, a Tear or a feeling of Satisfaction to someone that could never do those things.

Writing on a daily basis can also be a challenge because things can become very repetitive even when there are travels involved. It can get to be the same old. same old. Posting on a daily basis is also very time consuming and not just the time involved in Composing the Blog, Editing the pictures or even finding the time to take those pictures. For those that feel Bloggers should find something different to write about they should try writing a Blog for themselves and see how well they fair at it. 

The morning temperatures were finally mild enough that we were able to open the windows as we had our breakfast. Our plans for the day were simply to just accomplish whatever we could. We did finish our morning Coffee/Tea while we got caught up reading at the Computers. Kathy returned to her research this morning while I finished making the bed. 
Lunch was Chicken Soup. Chicken Strips and Tomatoes.
After lunch I cleaned off the Bicycle Carrier on the rear of the trailer. With our plans to head back to the Southwest this Fall some modifications might be necessary. Try as hard as I could I just couldn’t decide what to do because there were just too many things so I sat back and made a list. When I completed that I wrote it up on the Computer where they were separated and put in the order of importance. With a list to refer to things will get done faster then guessing on what to do. 

For Supper Kathy made some Macaroni with Cheese while I grilled Pork Chops on the Weber Q. As usual it all tasted great and was more then filling. By the time that Kathy finished her research today she was checking out Moab, Utah. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Jokes On The Job

The beatings will continue until morale improves.


  1. Rick, you are right on about writing a blog. It would be for better reading if bloggers led a story book life but we do not. We are ordinary people with a different life style.

  2. What to write about, and how many personal details you want to reveal, is an interesting challenge. I think we're all slightly different. Ultimately, we each choose to write whatever we want - to your own self be true.

  3. I've heard that remark too. On one side I like entertaining people .. making them laugh. On the other, you can't make everyone happy all the time.

  4. Well said F.G. Instead of commenting in such a negative fashion, those 'blurkers' should just stop reading. Our daily writings are our own diary that we are happy to share with everyone. Nice comments, Rick.

  5. We are catching up again. Glad to read Kathy had good news about eyes from Optometrist. I had the same good news last week.(one of my biggest worries with the diabetes) We are having the same rainy weather minus the wind. Have not moved the Stinger off of the driveway for fear it will sink.
    Really like that you insert the pictures from the southwest a nice reminder of the beauty and fun.
    I have read remarks more then once were people are criticized for their blog content or a decision they made about something. (It is one thing to say have you thought of this or tried that trying to be helpful. Those types of things are always welcome.) It upsets me when someone is criticized for telling it like it is...some days are lousy and if a blogger decides to share that it is their business, their blog, and what they want to remember. I agree with the comments above and what you said. I love reading "Rving" blogs and we have gotten a lot of helpful information doing so. Good job.

  6. Rick, Good point on blogging. I just say I am writing to my future self. I plan to read it all when I can't travel anymore to relive the adventure. I don't care to write every day because I don't find it interesting, I don't know why other would.

  7. So true that the blog is done by you for you. I write, as someone noted, for myself to look back on. If others enjoy it. so much the better:))
