RV John

RVing around the US

Fun Pictures today

Three days?: Yes, I am getting closer to time to hit the road. I at the “I can’t wait stage” LOL. Still I have nothing lock in as far as where I am going ……. it is kind of fun like that. I do have some ideals in my mind, but ideals is all with nothing set.

Pictures: Let me look around and see what I can find.
Something someone give me my first year out RVing, they also took me under their wing and show me the ways of boon-docking. Thanks Michael and Rosemary :)

Exercise: I rode the bike for 8 miles or so (two miles at a time) and did my stretching.

Night Folks

Slow, till Monday

Slow for now: The Weekend will be slow till Monday when everyone goes home and it will then be cleanup time.

Exercise: I have rode the bike about 5 miles so far today and will ride more later on. I have been missing my stretching for a few days but I got to it today. When I miss 4 or 5 days in a roll, I feel it good when I do stretch.

Pictures: Just a squirrel or two, this first one taken in Blue Water State Park, NM.

Near time: and yes, I am counting the days. It is not that I have not really enjoyed my time here but I have restless soul and it need fed!

Old Editor

Old WordPress Editor: Man, I hope they keep that thing around for a long time. I don’t like the new editor “Beep Beep Boop” ….. For those of you that don’t know what that is, it is what pops on the screen first when the new editor starts on WordPress. I think it should say “Big Boo Boo”

Pictures:
Buff Springs near Cloudcroft NM.

Wheels rolling …. in my mind

You can see an RV in the background on this one, just for size comparison. They are big, at least 30 to 40 feet high.

Exercise: Today I did a little weed-eating around the park so that will serve as my exercise.

Where to: Still thinking on that one. I want to stay cool, like it is here so going south is out for now. I want evaluation of at least 6000 feet this time of year. I have an ideal of what way I will go but it could change in a second o_O , the good thing about wheels.

Changes at WordPress

WordPress: While the old WordPress.com editor was great, WordPress has decide they are going to change it.

Things I don’t like about the new Editor

  1. It don’t behaved as the old one did, so a learning curve is in order
  2. Some things seems to not functions correctly, such as Preview post now opens a new page each time you hit it where as it use to just write over the already open preview page.
  3. It don’t seem as full features as the old one.
  4. The new editor don’t have the navigation bar across the top so I can quickly get to my Dashboard.
  5. Categories not organize with sub folders no more.
  6. Tags no longer give suggestion of previous tags
  7. Smaller editor Window

The list is forever, Read the post at the WordPress forum.
Beep Beep Boop, should be named A Boo Boo! So why? I think maybe they are going for a touch-screen interface, and like Microsoft with the Windows 8 touch interface, they are cutting off their foot just to spite the toe!

On the good news front …… I may be in luck this winter when I start using my tablet to do my post to WordPress. With it being such a mess with the PC interface I sure hope that something got better somewhere! Also a good thing is that for now you can still get to the old editor by way of the Dashboard.

Itchy feet: Yep, I am getting them itchy feet big time.

Pictures Not today.

Marmot

Some pictures: Here is what I call a hard-back chair ….. It is Petrifly o_O I took this shot at the gift shop of the Petrify Forrest in AZ. It was cool trying it out :)

Ever seen a Marmot up close? If not, all you have to do is walk up the the highest point in NM, which is Wheeler Peak these little guys are very friendly :)

Today, I rode with MapMyRide! Distance: 8.68mi, time: 40:37, pace: 4:41min/mi, speed: 12.82mi/h.

When I was a young man I use to work on these tanks, a long time ago. I took this picture at the graveyard of a museum near Joshua Tree National Park. (there where a dozen or so old tanks setting out back)

Itchy Feet: I am getting the itchy feet ……….. It won’t be long before I hit the road. I am thinking about what will be next. When will I go ….. I think between 3 Sept to 15 Sept. Where will I go …. I will stop at Grants, NM for a few days and then … I am not sure. Maybe Lake Powell, Lake Mead or maybe The Grand Canyon again. They are places I am thinking about but maybe none of the above ……. who knows? We’ll see.
