River of Life Farm (ROFL) Campground Recon

When I originally made reservations for this campground River of Life in Dora Missouri

the owner asked if we had four wheel drive. I asked why and he said well we have this hill. And if your vehicle can't make it then we will hook your trailer to our tractor and move it for you. Well we decided to go and have a  look. So this morning after a breakfast of pancakes we were off to see. The GPS said 118 miles due south. The SPOT was on for those with the link.
We did get a message from our friend Jeff to watch for overhead obstacles!!! Thanks Jeff!

Grand Tour of the Pod

Welcome to the Grand Tour of our Pod. It happens to be a 27RLS foot Keystone Cougar X Lite. We purchased this unit in March of 2010. No many modifications to it. We are still trying to make it ours!! Enjoy!!! 
Up off the ground for the winter. Cinder blocks under the stablilizers and wood under the tires. Tires are also covered.
This is our rain spout (we have four-one on each corner). It keeps water from going right down the side of the trailer and making those nasty black lines. Forgot them one time and they didn't fall off while going down the highway at 65 MPH.

Cabin Fever ......Feb 12, 2011

I see the POD every day......... it sits in the driveway...... Looks so cold....... but still welcoming. I can't wait for it to get warm so I can go out and begin the season. It is supposed to be in the 60's this week. It has been what seems a very long and dark winter... The days are getting longer by the minute. We have some things to accomplish in the POD before our first trip.......... Maybe next weekend we will be able to get in and dust it off and begin. When we can get in there .... I plan on taking you on a grand tour. I talk about it here in my blog all the time. Well I talk about it all the time anywhere! Anyway, I thought I should put some interior pictures here.

We want to go camping............. we want to put our yak in the river and float!!! We want to get on our scooters and not freeze :)  I really want to wake up on a Sunday morning ..... go out and restart the fire and watch the world wake up!! I really don't mind a week or two of good cold weather to kill all the nasty little bugs............ but I don't understand why it has to be months long!!!!!

So we have spent the winter ............. whiling away the hours waiting to be able to confer with the flowers,
Consult with the snow.

Facebook.......... some say the worse time waster ever. What I do like about FB is that my kids (who all live away) can post pictures. I have found friends again that without FB I would never be in contact with. I have also found people who enjoy the same things that I do. It opens windows for you. Weather, zoo, kids, causes, games, stores, hobbies, brand names, pictures from all over. Oh, I have to mention opinions......... you get many opinions sometimes good, bad or indifferent! I check FB in the morning and then again at night. Who knows what I might miss or not :) ......... Birthdays are just there so you really can't forget them.

I am finding that like FB the blogs that I read are just as interesting.............. sometimes more as they are more detailed. I follow about 20 blogs and try to keep up as possible. I follow full timers, dutch oven cooking, rv lifestyle, friends and others. I don't always comment! For those of you that know me .............. you understand how hard that must be sometimes.

Since we purchased our RV I have also started following some forums.........., & I do visit . I have learned so very much from those about my own RV. Have no problem going in there and asking just about anything. People are very helpful!!!!

Til the time I have a thought..........................

Blizzard of 2011

My Beautiful Snow Angel of 2011!!   

I thought God gave me a great canvas for a piece    of art. God thought again and wiped it out with wind less than 90 minutes later. But that was ok. I had pictures.

It's been in the news for days....... they have been telling us to prepare. Ice, snow and Artic air mass. The decision was made to close post Monday afternoon. I got home about 7:00 pm and it was so foggy. No rain, ice or snow. The pellety icey stuff started about 3 am. snow about 7 am.
