Exercise: Another walk and this one about 3 miles and will probably be my walk this week. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 3.16mi, time: 01:01:08, pace: 19:21min/mi, speed: 3.10mi/h.

Well …… : This morning it was about 50° with just a little wind and I was thinking that was chilly. I am going on over to NM soon for my Volunteer job. Many of the mornings will be about 20° and man I am going to be fussy over these cold mornings so get ready to hear me wimp! It will be fine but I will fuss at myself for a couple of months but I will settle in soon enough. I am ready to do something different, I have enjoyed my rest this winter but I am completely bored now. I will be more than ready for this boredom after 7 or 8 months of volunteering this year, but for now I am ready for something to do.

Forest, a rock one

Pictures: These from the Petrify Forest, which we stopped at on the way over from NM last fall.
Petrify Log, sticking out of every day rocks? 🙂

Exercise: My walk today …. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.42mi, time: 45:43, pace: 18:56min/mi, speed: 3.17mi/h.

Furnace: Today I replaced the motor in my RV furnace, which I have been needing to do for a long time. I always try to stay in warm places so when I need a little heat the Wave 8 Catalytic Heater is always plenty of heat but ….. I may go early to my summer Volunteer job and if I do I will need lots of heat! We’ll see if I go early or not, thinking on it 🙂

Beautiful day coming down

Yes it is! My luck on weather for the last few weeks has been tops, nice warm days in the 80’s or so, and nights around 50, that’s my kind of weather. This beautiful morning and I am setting around in my chill-out-mode just taking it easy, enjoying the peace and serenity of the day.

My friend and I took a trip into Q and goofed off for a while, well at least that is what I did, he picked up his mail from the post office.

I got a call today from the New Mexico state park system wanting to know if I wanted to work next summer as a volunteer in one of the parks (I would be hosting). This coming summer just might work for me, I am thinking that I will do this. The place I would be volunteering is a place with great summer weather and very convenient to a small city, … so it sounds pretty good. I have the winter to think it over.  I started to volunteer last summer but the timing was not right, it was too late in the summer to get the needed paper work done.

Been a long time now since I workamped …………… should I? I think the place where they offered me the job has some very nice laid back folks running the place, and it would be a good place to work. We’ll think on it this winter.

Exercise off for today, got to rest the knees now and then.

I am now back at Storrie Lake. I took a hook-up site this time.

I have a lot of updating to do on the blog and hopefully I will find time as I go along over the next month or so. I will start with my new Location which is here at Storrie Lake State Park.

Pictures coming soon, but not tonight. I am beat for today.

Not much on the exercise side of things today, just no time.

OK, I will try to catch up a bit more tomorrow, if I find the time. Later.
