A Little Shopping Trip

Plymouth, WA.

61 deg. partly cloudy, SW wind @ 12 mph.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. High of 81F. Breezy. Winds from the WSW at 15 to 20 mph.

Jim and Linda decided that they needed a few groceries and some other items, so about 11:00 they took CLT and headed up to Kennewick, WA. where they found a Walgreen's Drug Store. There, they found the items they needed, plus the few groceries they were wanting, (bread, buns and milk).

It was about 22 miles up there and CLT said that it felt really good to get out on the open road for a change, instead of just running around on city streets. : )

By about 12:30 they were back here and were putting everything that they had bought away. Then it was naps, reading and TV for the rest of the afternoon.

For dinner, Jim got out the grill and cooked a brat for him and a hot dog for Linda. While he was doing that, Linda cooked some asparagus on  my stove and got out chips and stuff to go with them.

Today, we'll be heading up to Sprague. From looking at the map, there doesn't seem to be anything anywhere near there, so I'm not sure what to expect as far as Internet, phone, TV or radio. I'm pretty sure that we'll be there at least until next Tuesday, and possibly a whole week.

So,   ,   ,   ,   ,   , if you don't hear from me for awhile, you'll know what's going on.

Did you know that Washington state's capitol building was the last state capitol building to be built with a rotunda?

OH, by the way.  As of tomorrow, (June 1st), Jim and Linda will have been full-timing for 11 years!!!!

On 1 June, 2001 they officially moved out of their house and into their 35' Winnebago Chieftain Motor Home, (Mariah). The vehicle that they towed, was a 1992 Nissan pickup truck that Mariah named TTT, (Tiny Tin Truck).


  1. Well, if we don't hear from you for a few days, congratulations on the first 11 years. Hope you have another 11 fun years.

  6. Wow, 11 years is as long as anyone who's blog we read. I do know that your knowledge of campgrounds is well beyond anyone else, as you seem to find some really interesting places...

    As far as settling down, you are going to need two homes. One in Illinois, and one in Central Florida, but even then you will have to keep the Motorhome..... That might be a tad expensive, LOL.
