Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

A peek at summer fun


Charming retro, and just the perfect size!

The past two winters Katie and I escaped to the South for several weeks. My Facebook memories tell me that it was today, two years ago, that she enjoyed her first run on the beach in Florida.

This year we didn’t go, and Katie, for one, wants to know why. The weather here hasn’t been conducive to park exploration and she’s bored, bored, bored! I’ve tried to make her understand that summer is coming, but I haven’t succeeded, probably because I’m not sure myself.

So this week I took myself to the annual RV and Camper Show. It happens in February to give us hope that someday soon we’ll be back out in the woods, enjoying a campfire, maybe roasting a marshmallow or two.

High tech camping.

Katie didn’t get to go, but I brought back these pictures so that she knows there is hope. There were all sorts of recreational vehicles and campers there. Some of them were way too huge…

This felt like it was 3 stories high!

…and some were oh so tiny.

Just room for a bed in there.

Some still let you have a tent experience….

Tent/trailer combo.

and some of them were fancier than our house.

Two bedroom, two bath.

But no, we aren’t going to buy any of these, we’re sticking to our trusty little blue tent. It was fun to look, but Katie and I are happy with what we have.

I love my tent mama!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. And why would you need any when you have an awesome lake house you could escape the winter at?


  2. I love those little retro style trailers, but I’d never want to pull one. I don’t know how anyone drives those big buses. I’d take outva parked car or two just lraving the sales lot. 😂 My fantasy is a custom built camper van.

    Summer has no meaning for me this morning. At least 4″ of fresh snow on the ground right now, and lots more in outlying areas.


  3. It sure is fun what is available out there but the good old tent is more fun!


  4. I think I’d like a small trailer – never mind I’ve never ever pulled a trailer. A small RV would be nice, but then you’d need to tow a car to get around once you’ve camped.


  5. And you went without me!


  6. You can roast marshmellows over the fire in Alabama!

  7. It’s nice to dream. Meanwhile, I’m ready for sunshine and warmth!
