Just think'n...road fever

I don't think much bout money, bank accounts an' stuff like that. I know how much I can spend in a month and that's what I do. Try'n to stay under my limit of course. When I talk to other RV'ers about what their monthly expenses are, I feel like "poor folk". But I live quite comfortably on what I spend.


Couple days ago I said I was tired. Today I am really tired. I need to go somewhere's. Ok, so I am somewhere.....what brings up the subject of "road fever". You folks what live in a house, in a subdivision, right next door to Mr. Jones, don't know what road fever is. These folks get excited to drive down the street and pick up a few items at Walmart....or their favorite store. But road fever is to get all excitis to drive 500 hunnert mile to another State to do their shop'n. Camp in some desolated little town for the night, then be on the road again before 10am the next morn'n. And all for no particular reason an' no particular place to go.

I been do'n some serious think'n bout the desert lately. Go see my old buddy "pesky neighbor" Wayne. Spend bout a month in Deming "do'n nuttin". Ain't got no wrote in stone plans, but sure am think'n bout another Texas lakes tour after leav'n NM. before head'n to south Texas Falcon Lake for the winter months. Catch me up that 14 pounds bass fish ya know.

My beer cousin in Missouri wants me to drop by on my way to New Mexico, but ain't sure I'll have the time. I got to be in Deming no later than the last of August for registration on "that jeep" and go visit with "Dr. Fronkenstein". Damn I don't like that guy. But he's the one what writes my prescriptions ya know.

Ok....I got things to do....laters.

  3. I'm the same way about money, BB, and I sure am "poor folk". I know what I get for the month, pay my bills, and then spend the rest, on traveling hopefully. I got road fever so bad I think I'll drive 250 miles week after next to Lassen National Park, and just camp in my tent for a week.

    1. It's been years since I've camped in a tent. Was think'n bout do'n that here in Georgia before head'n back to Texas. Would be a big change from camp'n 2012 style in a big ol' house on wheels.
      I say go for the trip to Lassen. Lay back and enjoy yourself. Take some photos.

  5. I am tired too, been thinking of going to the store since tomorrow it will be full of people but I have no get up and go.

    What you are not going to include a trip to Terlingua this year?

    I like camping and really have no choice but to camp in a tent. I am the only one in my camp in Terlingua that still does and from the looks of it will be doing so for as long as I can still pitch a tent by myself.
