Yup, moving again. We're now in Oklahoma for a few days. When it looked like, aw, crap, another wooded campground, no signal, we thought, we'll stay overnight and move on. But we checked all the available sites, and on this one Steve found a hole through the trees in just the right place, and we're in business.

And I have tried running again, this evening. After my 28 minutes the other day, my quads hurt for 3, count 'em, 3 days. Today they are OK and I did a cautious 15 minutes. If OK tomorrow, I'll do a cautious 20. But we have plans for kayaking, and also maybe some hiking. Now that we've decided to stay a few days!!

I have got to get running again. RNR Arizona is in less than 3 months.

Steve is building a campfire. Guess I'll go out. Maybe take my guitar.

Oh, yes, that reminds me!!! Our son Jonathan tried out for Nashville Star today! They were doing preliminary auditions in Morgantown, WV, which is about 40 miles from where he lives. He's been playing and singing country music in his living room for a couple years now and his wife, Jamie, urged him to go to the tryouts. He even bought a new guitar for it. He had 30 seconds and a list of tunes to pick from. He practiced up "Amarillo By Morning" and sounded really good, but they had over 500 hopefuls and only 20 spots and.... Jon didn't make it in. I mean, a lot of those singers do it professionally in bands, bars and wherever. This is the first time Jon's moved out of the living room. But I gotta hand it to him... it took real guts!!

That must be so cool to travel all over the country!

Yeah, it's fun. We're in Texas now. 55* out, sunny, great park to run in. We're going to Lowe's later to get some stuff to redecorate our trailer (Steve doesn't know yet it's "redecorating" and not just "putting up new blinds.")
