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:)

March - in like a lamb? Or out like a lion?

So I made it to Saskatoon and back:)

And I have some very exciting news. I think I shared that I was letting my name stand for District 2 Director on the Federated Co-operatives Board? Well - I WON! IN anticipation of doing so I had booked an extra night in Saskatoon, and a flight a day later than usual. I didn't want to say too much because I was nervous and not too confident on the direction the vote would go. Sorry to my male readers, but I do believe that women are just getting going on this Board, and in my District the outgoing gentlemen was well liked. Anyway, it's over, and I have a 3 year term!

So here we are in March, what now?

On Wednesday we went to the city, stocked up, and planned our next destination. You know Telephone Cove is a favorite, so that's we headed to. This area is for relaxing, some fine dining in our terms, and relaxing by the water; all of which we are quite accomplished at.

Every year we meet awesome travelers, some full time RVers, others like us. This year's group was VERY cool, and we shared a ton of laughs, beverages and campfires. I am always somewhat awed at women who travel alone, and we met 2 ladies that live in their vans. You need to know that rarely are these folks sad, whiny or even poor. They typically have worked hard their entire lives, have families across America and choose to live this simple lifestyle. LOVE IT!






Our next destination? Yuma.

Pat and Walter and Ivan are there. We know that there will again be lots of food, laughter and beverages. And hopefully still lots of sun. Yuma is having a wetter winter than normal, but compared to ice and snow still better.

I will say we are starting to carefully track what is being called the Corona virus, as I am sure many are. After our Yuma visit we plan on going to Phoenix to hang with Ken and Brenda, Ron and Bev, and Carol and Richard.

So what has Yuma involved? Quiet evenings with Ivan, lots of visits and cards with Pat and Walter, and Don and Ivan snuck in a couple campfires.

Our boondocking site is so close to Yuma, I love it. You know I love a good city or town as much as I love boondocking, so this is the perfect location.







The bottom 2 photos are "the wall". Yes the wall between the US and Mexico. It was quite dusky out so the photos aren't the best, but it was chilling to see in person.

As often happens on our travels we have met some new friends, this time through Ivan. Ernie and Deb are fellow Saskatchewan folks from a long way back, and currently full timers. A short evening visit turned into a late night of music and 2 Ukrainian gals having a dance party!!

Well I have a better offer on the table right now than writing - a cold beer, so I will talk to you soon.
