3 wheeled fun in the sun!

This picture would have been so much better with sound! Cheri (known to many as Grammahugababy online), was having a great time blasting around by our camp on Gary's cool little trike. The perma-grin on her face was accompanied by plenty of laughter!  Gary, gary gearloose, or gg for short, (lower case intentional) is one of our great friends from the Port Angeles Washington area.

Gary's new van on the left above is a bit larger than his old VanTramping vehicle of choice, the Scion Box shown below. He was able to cary both his trike, which does fold up, and his home built Kayaks in either vehicle and still have room for himself and his other stuff.

We have been really enjoying the many visitors we have been getting here in Quartzite! I guess there must be something about the area that makes it desirable this time of year. Hmmm, I wonder if it has to do with the weather? Yesterday, the temps were a very comfortable high of 78 and a low of 47 with clear skies and sun. I believe my mother may have been annoyed with me for calling to "share" this info with her :) Apparently, Minnesota isn't as comfortable right now, I thing she mumbled something about 25 below zero windchill... I probably should not repeat the rest!

While gg has moved on already to his next destination, we still get to enjoy spending time with Cheri and little Tony the Tiger, who is easily one of the sweetest Yorkies anywhere! There are more VanTramps and friends on the way. We can't wait to see you! To everyone else, seriously, what are ya waiting for?

    It will hit 19 degrees here tonight - and we are in SOUTH ALABAMA!!! Mike & Heidi, you are in the right spot!

    Wish I could join you all this year but it will have to wait till I get my rig next year.
    Can't wait!

  2. What are you doing to get so many visitors? Are you passing out $100 dollar bills? :) I love the pic of Grammahugababy riding the recumbent bike! Now that's how to live life!

  4. Hey Mike, I've been asking myself the same question lately--when am I going to get up out of the computer chair and clear everything out of the house and get moving? So this afternoon I did some of that. Sure felt good. It's probably going to be about 10 degrees here for a few nights, and not much warmer for the foreseeable future. I wonder why I'm here? Inertia, mostly. I can probably do a lot more than I think I can, and I aim to try. Glad you all are having such a nice meetup.

  8. Hey, guys! Your ever-lovin' sis decided to pop online for a sec at the Lib. I like seeing what you are up to. I understand completely about the picture comment, referring to the deer. Most of life is that way... a secret pleasure to be enjoyed, a silent communication with God and the shared joy in His creation, etc.. Glad you are safe and warm. Call sometime. We miss you! I won't see a response to this probably, and you know it will be months before I get online again. But take care. I love ya! The weather is terrific here by the way! Trace
