Finally, a vacation!

We’re off.  Way off.

Plus, we’re leaving for vacation in the camper, an old friend that has taken us all over our state and a couple of states abutting.  It even has a propane furnace!

in the wilds of Montana where we were advised to watch for bears!

We take the Bajaj scooter for a get-around vehicle.

(This is quite a change from the frigid winter camping of my Alaska years, and it did take me a little time to come to terms with the idea that I was not carrying my belongings on my back…  in the quiet wilderness.  I cried the first time we parked the camper in a state park and cowered inside away from the crowds–it was a very small campground–maybe 20 spots–and I was overwhelmed.   But now I love it and can’t wait to get on the road!  Still don’t like the crowds, but I can get away from them inside!)

Calpurrnia the cat goes with us.   The first night nobody gets any sleep because kitty-Cal walks all over us and flips and flops trying to get unafraid of the change.

Our sweet Calpurrnia the Calico Cat

Cats don’t like change.  Boy, do we change the scenery for her!  She hates it when I move the furniture!

Calpurrnia's opinion of the walls we were taking down!

We’re leaving CosmoBuddy-BoopScooter at home because he is still a wanderer despite having some strong navigational equipment removed.  We can’t take the chance of losing him somewhere far from home.

He has good company.

We’re going to hear an amazing flute player, Hanz Araki as part of our trip!  And after that, we have no idea, just will wander until we’re there.  Again and again!

    Have a great time. And this “some strong navigational equipment ‘ is a great phrase! :)

    Wow, I’ll miss you! This sounds like it’s going to be super fantastic. Oh and I fixed my blog, that unemployment post you asked me about is back. Have fun, buddy.

    I forgot to mention that we would be taking our computers, so I will be posting here and there!

    Glad you got the internet problem under control–crazy-making isn’t it when the invisible, take-it-for-granted stuff doesn’t work??!!
