|Our 2019 travel adventures
Of course most of our year was spent in South Dakota working on ours and Kevin's houses, memories we will never forget. We are still in awe when we look at where we started in March...…
to where we are now......
We cannot thank everyone who stopped to help enough. Especially Kevin and Cheryl but also Jim and Diane, Guy and Sue, Doug and Jan, Dan and Bonnie, Dave and Leslie, Doug and Lisa, Tom, Earl, Richard and Cheryl, Steve and Deb, Al and Ingrid, Dino and Lisa (Well, Lisa anyway....) and of course, our son Forrest! Wow, we cannot help but feel blessed with so many great friends who stopped by, visited and lent a helping hand....
We did manage to get up to Pasha Lake for a month and even over to Oregon to see Forrest, Somer and Lily. The bonus of that trip was Jessica and Shane flying in with their kids as well.

So what have we been up to down in the desert? The week since Christmas has been wet and cool. Two days of rain meant we had to break out the generators to maintain the batteries. The rest of the week has been sunny but cool with lows in the 30's and highs in the 50's and low 60's which is not horrible but the winds make it feel a lot chillier.
We did escape to Parker one day with Dino and Lisa and saw the movie Jumanji. Another day I just sat inside and read while Barb and Lisa ran to Phoenix to do some shopping. I actually don't mind these down days, it is nice to just have a "do nothing day" once in a while.
Daisy spent her day watching the National Dog Show.....
Friends Ray and Deb arrived on the 27th. They parked a little way down the wash so their dog Freya would have a better area to run. Deb invited us over for ham dinner on the 29th. Deb's cooking is world renowned and this is the first time she has invited us over for dinner.

Sunday was cool but calm so I got the drone out to take a few pictures of the area....

2020 looks like it will be very similar to '19. Working on the house, some travel and more working on the house. Although this year we are going to Alaska!
Our year will look something like this.....
|2020 Travel Plans
This is just our tentative plans, we know we want to stop in Klamath Falls, Vancouver Island, Haines, Homer, Kenai and Fairbanks. We still need to iron out timelines and additional stops but that is where we are at so far.
Looks like it is going to be another busy year!
