We took the trip to Colorado and had a good time. Got to lay hands on and pray over my best friend before he shipped out. The kids got to see some awesome stuff while we were out. We went to the top of Pikes Peak, hiked around the Garden of the Gods and generally just had a good time hanging out with old friends.
Work has been slow and we didn't have anything real good for 3 weeks. I just recently started a project for Ollies Bargain Outlet that should catch up all our bills.
So that's where I am now. Boondocking in a parking lot in St Clairsville, OH. I do the upgrade at night and sleep in the parking to make sure that everything is working in the morning. The job is pretty decent, but there is only 28 stores to do, so I will be back to looking for work again next month.
This year we spent Thanksgiving at Big Oak Ridge with our family. It was a nice chill environment. The kids got to play with their cousins and I got to hold my newest niece. It was pretty nice. I really didn't take any pix though.
I have been staying pretty local for work so not as much travel going on. Still put 36k miles on my truck already since January though.
I have been making a documentary series though if you are interested in watching that.
Today we did Discovery Days with PA Virtual Charter Schools. Kids had a great time and maybe even learned something. We used our camper for the first time since we bought the house and did just fine back in it. We camped out in the parking lot of the event. Tomorrow I am doing the RC scale off-road competition with some other guys. Should be a lot of fun. You can find out more about that at http://keystone-rc.com and http://tri-statescaleoutlaws.com
Well we've been busy with the new house and getting adjusted to being stationary again. I am trying to rebuild my business, but it's going slow. Work has been slow lately.
We have decided to put our camper up for sale. We are asking $30k for it. It books around $36k and we figure it has a couple grand of upgrades easy on it.
I have been doing a lot with the radio control stuff. I started a group for local RC enthusiasts at http://keystone-rc.com and I have been working with the local hobby shop and dirt track on some stuff (Big Dog RC).
Been enjoying reconnecting with old friends and playing with the kids.
We thank you all for your prayers and for continuing to follow our adventure.
I know I have not been keeping up with the posts on here. Much of my life lately doesn't feel like an adventure so it seems pointless to share.
Last night, however, we did something fun. The church we have been attending, Galloway United Methodist, put on a father daughter ball. The girls dressed up in fancy dresses, and I pulled out the most dressed up stuff I own. There was dancing, and desserts and makeup for the girls. We had a lot of fun and I think the girls really enjoyed being princesses. Course they always are, but sometimes its fun to dress and act like one.
My good friends roof started leaking badly right about the same time his furnace quit. Heat was more important then roof right now and being short on money we decided to put a tarp up to temporarily stop the rain and snow. I have to admit that this high up step roof actually has me slightly terrified. Hopefully tomorrow we can finish it.
Well I have been staying crazy busy for quite sometime now. This is a good thing as I was worried that I would not have work. I should have known God would provide (well I did know He would). Just sometimes our ideas and Gods ideas don't look the same. It always amazes me how things work out.
We are all moved into the new house. I have been putting on about 3000 miles a month for work. Being in a house is nice, but I do miss the different scenery of travel. Looking forward to the next project where we can see some more of the country.
As many of you know, we got rid of almost all of our furniture when we hit the road. We are currently in the process of buying a house and we need some things when we move. I will keep this ongoing and check off things as we get them. Thank in advance for following our blog. We will continue to travel so we will keep updating.
Thing we need for the new house: Dining room table and chairs
Bed for the grownup (king or queen)
Decent sized Freezer (our little portable on just won't cut it)
Shelves for garage and basement
Recently we took the family (us, the kids, my sister and bro in law and their kid, and my parents) to a corn maze in Lucinda, PA. Pricing was pretty good. It was a little muddy, but we new it would be. We all wore boots. We managed to find all the check points and the kids won a prize. They had some little kid type games and stuff for the kids to do. They also had a sand box filled with whole kernel corn that the kids loved. We had a good time. Definitely recommended.
I will have to add pix later. They are all on my phone.
Any contributions will be used to help us travel to disaster relief sites to help with clean up work or rebuilding. We are not a non-profit; donations are not tax deductible.
Thanks in advance, and God bless!
