I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Well there is certainly a lot going on, mostly bad. Weather... Bad. Then the health issues with family members. With UK, it is both. Now that we are aware of the situation, I hope UK and Dave keep us up to date as things improve. If UK gets our storms a few days after they head out to sea, well there is soon gonna be more TRUBBA. They even postponed the Louisville / Temple basketball game in Philadelphia. I figure Philly can handle snow. They are only getting a foot tonight during the scheduled game time.
We are supposed to get some snow tomorrow / Friday. But later next week they are talking 65 degrees!
So I got a notice from my apartment complex saying my lease is up in a couple months, and they need a 60 day notice of what my plans are. They want to renew for 13 months at the same rate, or go month to month at a premium rate. Decision time. I am not crazy about any of theirs. It has been a good place for the cats, no doubt. But the apartment is just OK. I have a neighbor above me who has odd hours, and walks around very heavy footed. There have been times the cats have jumped up with the noises. For me, no huge deal. If I had a job at 7 AM, maybe different.
I do not like apartments, and I did this as a temporary solution. So I want to opt out. And today I looked into an option I have considered for many years. New chapter? Maybe. I looked at a 31 foot RV. It is an unusual situation for me, as I am dealing with a friend. And unusual beyond that, I choose to discuss the rest if and when I buy. The RV is 9 years old and in good condition. I would live in it with the cats. I am not shopping around, this is the one or none. It is at a good price, and I trust the seller. It offers me the chance to move around as I want, maximum flexibility. I am reading the Owners Manual and we will all get together in a few days for a test drive.
I am liking this opportunity. Park the RV, use it as a base camp. Drag the Camry behind. I was checking random RV parks USA and the first one I saw was in Death Valley. Within walking distance of the lowest altitude golf course in the world, Furnace Creek. Played it. -82 feet.
