Oops, We Did It Again!

And we meant to!
With our house on the market, we loaded up the Journey and we headed out,

to the Richmond, Virginia KOA and spend another weekend with  Mike and Terri Young.

We set up the Journey in a nice site and opened up all the awnings, to keep the hot sun off its side.

One thing that I wonder about, the main awning is an electric awning, but the little awning over the door has to be opened with a hand crank.

A crank rod fits in a hook and you twist it to open and close the awning.  It's really fun when you have to run the awning in because of a heavy rain, all the water dumps right on you.  Marti says it does that because it wasn't designed by a woman!

We had several meals with Mike and Terri.  We asked them something special and they said yes.  Mike and Terri are now Tag's godparents!

We had a lot of fun together with them.  It probably will be our last visit with them for a while, they just sold their house and will be heading out on the road shortly.

The KOA was partly full, which is surprising for a holiday weekend.  Still, there we many interesting RVs there.  One was this travel trailer toy hauler with some neat "toys".  We wondered how they fit the toys inside.

Or this RV.  Maybe it's a bordello on wheels?

Thanks for visiting and free to leave  a comment.


  1. It's great knowing you're on the road! Just stay out there and let the house sell while you're gone. Isn't that the deal? It's like a pot of water doesn't boil while you're watching it. lol

    We'll be back in the states on Thursday. This is the place to go if you're hot down there. It hasn't hit more then 84, yet anyway.

  2. glad to hear that 'tag' will be looked after!!!..a nice weekend with friends is just the 'trick' to take you mind off life at home!

  3. Good idea to hit the road, why not? During my 9 years as a Realtor, I hated when sellers hung around as I showed their homes. Much less pressure on the buyers if they are gone.

    Hope it sells soon!

  4. Wow I'm surprised KOA would let such a "questionable" house on wheels in their gates. Especially in Virginia. LOL

    I agree with Jim & Dee, get rid of those jobs and go on the road and come back when it sells. When are you two retiring anyway???

  5. Glad you had a good weekend, and with great friends! Tag is one lucky pooch ;-)

  6. Looking forward to more good times with you guys out on the road!

  7. Tag has 4 great parents!!!

    Hope the house sells soon and you can get out there and enjoy full-timing.

    Actually, I hope we are there also!!

    Happy 4th!!

  8. We think Marti is right. I like the "lovemobile"

  9. Krispy Kreme donuts! Just think-soon there will be no more weigh ins-then the sky is the limit:)

    I did not know that they you could get one with a manual door awning :(
