Apple Watch Dock

Tonight I'm testing my new Apple Watch dock by Simpeak. It charges the Apple Watch and supports Nightstand mode.  It also has three USB ports that charge things like my iPad and iPhone.

So far, so good. 


It's That Time Again, Again

Yay!  It's Friday!  Time to pack up and head on over to the Airstream. Gotta do some shopping first though.  Need something to cook in the BBQ.  And we have a long list of things we need to do this weekend.


That's it.


So I must have left the gas on in the big BBQ, as I am out.  No worries, I pulled out my portable grill.

It's That Time Again

It's Sunday afternoon. That time again to leave the Airstream and go back to the "real" world.  One day I'll retire and this will be my real world.


Time For Improvements

It's time to make some improvements of the landscaping in our lot.  With lots of sweat and hard work and... or pay some dude to come and do some cleaning. Either way, it's looking good!

Weather Is Improving

The weather is starting to improve.  Meaning it's no longer 200 degrees outside. Even the dog is enjoying the outdoors.

We're Here

We're here. Another weekend in our Airstream.  I forgot to bring stuff for the BBQ, so I guess we'll be eating out a lot this weekend. 

Ok, Last One

Ok, this is the last one.  Only RV posts from now on.

Woohoo!  It's Friday!

It's Only Tuesday

I can't help but find funny meme pictures and post them here until its time to go to the Airstream again...

A Little Overloaded

I think I may be a little bit overloaded... (kidding)

It's That Day Again

Friday is here!  So it's that time again!  Time to head on over to the Airstream!

30 Feet Is Very Long

Hump Day

It's hump day. That day of the week that's no closer to the weekend before or upcoming. It's downhill from here, coasting to Friday.  And Friday is the day we go to our Airstream.  Yay!

Never Forget

I was working in DC that day, about 7 miles south of the Pentagon (VA actually). I was working on a long term project and was flying to DC every week from Tampa. I was leading a staff meeting that morning when someone came in and said "a plane crashed into the Twin Towers in NY!"  

Wow, that was odd. A plane crashing into a building. What could have possibly caused that I remember thinking. I remember everything. I remember saying "that's nice" and closing the door, continuing my meeting. I mean, I couldn't interrupt my meeting because of some freak plane accident in New York?

A few minutes later, the same person came bursting into my meeting, interrupting it again. "You guys have got to see this! Another plane crashed into the Twin Towers!"

Two planes? What? Ok, that peaked mine and everyone else's curiosity. We paused the meeting while we gathered around a TV in the break room to witness the horror the rest of the country was waking up to.

It wasn't crashes. It was terrorists. And they weren't done yet. There were more planes in the air. And shortly thereafter we learned one was headed our way. 

I remember giving the order to close the facility. I was the guy in charge. In charge of that little piece of the world. Everyone go home. I remember going into a Fuddruckers to continue watching TV. Later that morning we learned a plane struck the Pentagon. I could see the smoke clearly from the parking lot. And flight 93. Those brave souls we learned later decided to go down fighting.  

I was stuck in the hotel for a week. No flights out. Some of my colleagues rented cars and drove back to Florida. I decided to wait it out. There was no telling where was "safe". 15 years later it still feels like yesterday.  

When one thinks of tragic history, like December 7th, it seems so far away, so distant. Yet for many who lived through it December 7th is a day "which will live in infamy" forever. Did we learn our lessons from back then? Some. But some seem forgotten. As do some of the lessons from September 11. It is sad, really, that only 15 years after this attack there seems to be some "amnesia" going around.  

Not here.

It's That Time

It's that time again, time to leave our little slice of peaceful living and go back to the grind.  Thankfully this is a short week. We'll be back Friday.  Until then...

New Roof

Got a new roof for the golf cart today.  This one has an extension on the back to cover the back passengers.  I didn't think I'd need it so soon, but I've been carting quite a few guests around lately.  Now they have a little cover from the sun. 

Let There Be Fire

We had smores today.  Life is good. 

The Things We Do

So the Airstream has opened up new frontiers for us.  We've gone to places we would have otherwise not gone. 

Like Rural King.  It's like a redneck Walmart.  Think about that for a moment.  

The store is awesome.
