|Wild Flowers in the ditch|
We have been on the road a few hours enjoying the Spring Flowers that are everywhere but we are bucking a heck of a headwind today so our mileage is dismal and it's kinda creepy the way the rig sorta sways.
I have to admit though, our old Fiver was darn scary in a wind, so this is much nicer, (if there is such a thing).
|Oh My Gosh, Who's place is this? It's so clean!(Stuff on counter goes in Truck)|
I started doing this because I had an unnamed fear of dirt building up under the slide as it moved in and out, causing problems eventually, (I don't know what, maybe binding? or grinding to a halt because of some cat toy or bead I left rolling around), so I started vacuuming rigorously every time we moved before we put the slide in.

Then we move to Doyle's end of the trailer and see that he has acquired a new toy. Thankfully we had a lot of room this year on the way back, or this would have been left behind.
There's a great story behind our new Yacht, you see, we were on the beach and Doyle came running up to me towing this barnacle and seaweed covered Dingy behind him, with this Little Boy Look on his face that clearly said, "Look what followed me home, can I keep it?" I was dubious at best about the prospect, we were three miles up the shore and there wasn't much to recommend this craft, it was "Seaworthy" but where I come from, (Lake Superior), this wouldn't qualify as a life vest.
I did some research on this boat and it turns out it's quite the sailing craft, it can be neatly rigged to run sail and the site has pictures of people actually skipping across the waves in one of these. Yeah, right.
I noticed most of the "Sailors" were kids and that the small bay they were in had a breeze that just rippled the surface. I myself I think would rather take the peril of survival swimming for shore than put my faith in this craft in a pinch...
But, it amuses Doyle and he thinks it will be nice for trolling the small rivers around the area we are planning to stay in this year in Wisconsin, and I agree, it would be good for that, and if all else fails we can always fill it with dirt and plant flowers in it.
