What it means....

It's kind of cool to sit here writing my daily blog entry while looking out the salon window seeing campers going about their camp chores......seeing smoke curling up from several campfires.....seeing the sunlight filtering downward through the thick grove of pine trees......seeing people talking, laughing, and embracing as they prepare to head back to their real world.  Within a few hours the chores will be done, the cars will be packed full of tents, sleeping bags, camp stoves, lanterns, tarps, and air beds......the fires will be out......the goodbyes will have been said, and another weekend chapter in the life of TVC will be in the books.  Soon section "E" will have that "empty" feeling again.......and once again those of us who have chosen this nomadic existence will have smiles plastered across our faces.....smiles that belie the feeling of satisfaction which comes from knowing we are already home.......we won't spend the next few weeks dreaming about the next weekend trip.....there will be no bittersweet feelings.  Why is that?  What does it mean?  It means we are living the dream........the dream where every day feels like Saturday.  

So, what did Saturday look like for us?  Let's warmed up so quickly that we decided to cook breakfast outside while watching the first WC game of the day.  We had blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs and nitrate free sausage.  The first match of the day was between Argentina and Iran.  Argentina was the heavy favorite in the game, but Iran held them to a scoreless tie as they headed into the 3 minutes of "extra time".....Argentina managed to score the only goal of the game just a few seconds into the "extra time" period for the victory.   

It was a lovely day to sit out side watching three good soccer matches.....of course, in between matches there are things to be done, even if you are living the dream. Ordinary stuff life dumping the "black" tank, washing dishes, cleaning the outdoor stove, but it's all good.

Thanks for stopping by!
