Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Now This is the REAL Boondocking…

First let me say that although I have not blogged in a long time, we have been busy and enjoying every day.  I can’t even seem to remember how May and June have passed since our return home, but it has flown by and every minute has been precious.  We have celebrated Blake’s 5th birthday, had a week with Lindsay and Connor to ourselves, attended a year end pre-school party for Blake and Em, had ice cream and special coffee dates with the grandchildren, an amazing Mothers Day weekend, went to a wedding, enjoyed a traditional May long weekend camping trip, celebrated our 32nd anniversary, and the list goes on and on.
I have resigned from my Volunteer Alberta job (the 2nd one – it was just not the right choice) and decided to focus on my company.  And as well in a odd turn of events I am taking courses on behalf of Don’s company so it can receive its COR which is Certificate of Recognition, which is a “safety thing”.  LOL
But the exciting news right now is that Don went on a northern quadding and fishing trip with a few people, 2 of whom are our great son-in-laws, and has earned the right to say he really knows how to boondock!  The pictures in the album highlight the trip, and the SPOT shows the camp area.
If you want full trip details you will have to talk to Don, as I am the lowly writer, and myself spent the weekend with 2 beautiful daughters and 4 incredible amazing grandchildren.
We have our trailer at the lake lot and have enjoyed quite a few relaxing days and evenings there so far, and hopefully many more this season.  More to follow through the summer…
