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:)

Settled in at Home

Our trip home was uneventful (good thing) and we did take in some lovely sites on the way, as well as an overnight at a Home Depot which actually provided some greenery and trees.

Did you know Home Depot has free wifi? It's too bad many Walmarts are saying no to overnight campers - they lose our grocery income, as well as the incidentals typically purchased, and the restaurants in them such as Subway or McDonalds.  I understand many in populated tourist areas say there is too much trash left behind, and I have seen some examples of small amounts, but overall I think it is a loss for both sides.

Anyhow, Home Depots, and in Canada Home Hardware, are still welcoming, hence in Ontario, Oregon we overnighted at Home Depot.

Our last destination on our way home was Farragut State Park. Although we will be back this summer when we visit Silverwood with the family, it's such a perfect stop location on the way home we couldn't resist. We relaxed a bit, toured a bit, and visited the lovely waterfront at Coeur d'Alene.

One of the greatest experiences RV'ing is meeting other like minded folks. Our last night in Farragut we met an RV couple from New Zealand. We shared an evening of beverages and stories, and as always no matter where you are from geographically, lives are quite parallel when you are retired grandparents seeing the world!

We were home for a few days (thankfully) when this happened!!

That is all I can say for now - I am cold and disgusted. LOL
