Why Do I Blog?

    1. We dreamed for years before we finally got our ducks in a row. We love RVing. We love traveling the country. I bet when you are ready, you will love it to. Thanks for checking out my blog.

  1. I just discovered your blog by following the link on Betty’s blog. I really enjoyed this post and can relate to why you started blogging. I started my blog eight years ago so family and friends could follow along on our adventure from Georgia to Alaska and back towing our fifth wheel. Once we were back home I enjoyed blogging so much I continued to keep it up. I had no idea I would have blogging friends! We are no longer traveling in our RV and these days the blog is mostly a way for me to share photos and keep up with my blogging friends. I’ve never had an opportunity to meet any of them in person. I enjoyed reading about your get together with Betty and Dan.

    1. Traveling to Alaska would be a trip of a life time for us. It’s on our bucket list and we hope to do it someday. I’m glad you enjoyed reading the post. Thanks you.

      1. Gramma, thank you! I know taking the RV to Alaska is not possible this year but I really hope you will go as soon as you can. I’m looking forward to following you along on your adventures.

    1. Hello Grammie. You are welcome to copy my idea (it really wasn’t an original idea anyway). Meeting Betty and Dan was a special treat. Thanks for checking out our blog.

  2. I loved this story of why you write! Saving adventures for posterity is an important reason–it is why my friend blogs about her adventures and family, and like you, she prints copies of the blogs time to time. Also like you, I began by journaling on my travels, and I have a shelf full of those journals. I have only done two books from our travels, but we used the feature for Apple that comes with the Photos program on my Mac, and it allowed us to lay out exactly where we wanted text and photos. I share your appreciation for Betty’s writing, sense of humor, and projects she shares (I love the dollhouse too–I always wanted one!), and how encouraging and supportive she is to all those who comment on her posts and the sometimes fun, sometimes kind, and always genuine comments she makes on mine. I love that she directed her followers over here–that is how I have connected with some interesting writers and their stories–from who reads the blogs I like and that leads me to others I like. Write on!

    1. I am glad you liked my story. Thanks for taking time to read it. I’ll have to see about the Apple features. My MacBook is old and out dated, but it still works for writing and uploading the blog. Have a good day.

  3. This is my favorite post of yours. 🙂 It brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. Dan and I very much enjoyed our evening with Kathi and you. I read your blog because it is interesting and well written. No matter what happened in your freshman english class! In a nutshell, I enjoy your blog very much. That’s why I read it! I also learn things RV related as well as places to travel. You and Kathi are such positive examples of making the most of life, exploring this beautiful land, and loving family. I like positive. Perhaps that’s why I felt so comfortable meeting you and Kathi – who you are comes through in your writing. I appreciate all your compliments, and I do so hope our paths will cross again one day. P.S. I also hope you’ll write a post when you create the book from your blog again. I might like to do that someday. Perhaps PixxiBooks will improve how they arrange pictures in the future, perhaps offering an option… Safe travels, my friend.

    1. I came over here from Betty’s blog and can certainly relate to what you have written here. The internet has been slow wherever we’ve been lately, and I’ve been asking myself the same question. It takes forever to load up pictures. Thanks for the inspiration to keep going!

  4. I too have issues with putting ink on paper, but I find you’re writing to be a good read. Since I do not own an RV, (no place to really keep it), nor do I seem to have the time to travel, your blog is a good way for me to at least enjoy someone else’s adventures. I read every posting, and appreciate being kept in the loop as to where your travels take you. The pictures are great and perhaps someday I will be able to see some of the locations in person. I say see the country as soon as you can, before getting too old, or being faced with declining health, or being obligated to support family members who just happened to live close by.

    1. Your point is well taken. I agree with you that seeing things through travel sooner than later is best, but it is not always possible. Not sure if you remember, but you are the friend I refer to who asked me to post updates. Thank you. I am glad you enjoy reading.
