My Heart Breaks

The images from Japan are just heartbreaking.  I can’t imagine the terror and suffering those people experienced.  And now, they have to worry about radiation.  It sure makes me appreciate our good fortune even more. 

So, I won’t complain that it is supposed to be 90 degrees today :)   We actually turned on the air yesterday for a few hours.  This desert sun heats things up quickly.  The nights are beautiful!

I think it’s about time to start heading north.  We’ll be leaving Arizona a week from Thursday and making our way through New Mexico for a few weeks.  I’ve been in touch with a former co-worker from Germantown, Maria.  She lives in Taos, and we hope to meet up with her and her husband. 

We plan to be in Racine, Wisconsin on April 18th to have some repair work done on the RV.  Once we’re done there, we will head to Derge County Park in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.  We will be camphosting there for the summer.  And, the good news is that Kevin has been hired by Dodge County to be the maintenance person at the park.  He will get paid 24 hours a week to mow the lawn and other projects.  So, we get our site for the camphosting and some income from the maintenance position.  Good deal!

I’m very much looking forward to spending Easter with my family.  It will be great to see them all again! 

On Sunday we went to the Litchfield Park Art and Culinary Show in the Park.  There were quite a few booths with some amazing art.  We didn’t buy a thing, but I love to see the works created by the talented artists.  There were also some cooking demonstrations by local chefs.  It was pretty hot, so we didn’t stay to watch.  I forgot my camera, so no pictures today.

The RV park is starting to empty out.  Only about half the sites are occupied.  Although, this week is spring break for school kids in this area.  We have definitely noticed more kids in the park.  It seems many of their families have off-road vehicles, so there must be trails near here.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
