So follow our travels from "The Beginning" until now "wherever that may be".

This lifestyle is great!

Well, here it is Tuesday night in Altoona, Iowa.  Not alot going on. We did our weekly shopping today and Bob bought materials to make me a portable clothesline.  If you leave your wearing clothes in the combo washer/dryer until they are completely dry they are wrinkled.  So we take them out and hang them before they finished drying.

The only thing I can say about this lifestyle is we love it!  I feel like a different person without all the stress of a "real" job and a "stix & bric" house.  What took us so long to decide we could do this.  We've met all kinds of people with varied backgrounds and job histories.

On Saturday, we actually start to work.  I, Judy, will be an assistant operator on the log flume.  I guess that means I probably will have a wet afternoon.  Sure hope the weather is warm.  Bob will be operating the Gileon.  We understand that is a big boat replica that swings back and forth.  We understand that we change rides every week.  Tomorrow we actually will tour the entire park and see everything.  Afterwards, there is a big dinner for all the workampers put on by the park.  All we have to do is "enjoy".  Then Thursday we will actually have our training for the rides.  That's an all day affair.

I might add that we have been offered jobs for the Christmas season at in Kentucky.  We'll start sometime in November and work thru December 23rd.  I understand it's hard work so hope we'll be able to handle it.  Afterwards we'll just travel for the next 3 or 4 months somewhere that's warm.

I want everyone back in Tuscaloosa, AL, to know that we are praying for them and hope that people are starting to recover from the disaster.  It's amazing that at most of the churches we have attended on our journey, the tornado victims in the south are being remembered in prayer.  It really softens your heart to know that people all over care about what happened.  We will be back there in October and I know things will not look the same. 

For you who are aware of Bob's health problems, I want to add that last week he had blood work and it came back good and then he had to transmit his Internal Cardiac Defibilator history for the past 5 weeks and there was nothing bad that showed up.  Absolutely no problems had occurred and his fluid levels were good.  God is with us on this journey!

One thing we're having to get used to here is it doesn't get dark until 9:00 PM or after.  Supper time and bed time just slip up on us.  It's taking some getting used too.  But it allows us to enjoy the outdoors longer.  I guess that's about all I can think of to say.

So, I'll see you later!


P.S.  Still promise to take some pictures here.
