Life.....On Life's Terms!

It will soon be 4 months since I started my new life on the road. I would love to report 3+ months of trouble free living. I would love to honestly say that everything has just fallen into place and worked perfectly. I feel like a green-bean newcomer, sometimes. The truth is, not everything has gone as planned. When you last heard from me, I had just arrived in Daytona Beach. What I didn't tell you was the problem I had towing the toy-hauler. Look at this...

That is a brand new air shock because the other one had a hole worn into the side of it. See the big ol' tire? It was the one who did the wearing out job. Why? It appears the inside dual tire only had 30lbs of air. Not Good! The other five tires had 40 lbs of air. Really not good! I trusted my tire shop to check my tires. Never again. I am now in charge of air!(no pun intended)  It was a lesson learned and won't be forgotten. I was even thinking about a different truck. ( I had no idea new trucks are so expensive now) The ol' white truck drives like a new one now.

I had a great time during Daytona Bike Week. For those of you who don't know, Bike Week is a great gathering of the tribes in the Harley world. 500,000+ motorcycles. It makes for a crazy and diverse 10 days. Here are some assorted pictures...

I have made some small additions to my rolling home. Most of these things were needed...

I have had some items decide they didn't like camping. For instance, this is being written on my new laptop. I don't think I am all that crazy about Windows 8. Any opinions?

I will try to stay better in touch. I do appreciate and love you all.
