Guest Blogger: We’re back! For real!

Hello, readers! It’s great to be with you again!

P1120111-001

This is Bridget.  RVSue is recuperating from the recent collapse of our blog. (She said some really bad words!)

This morning, when she found out the blog was working again and she read a bunch of comments about you missing us and about what you’ve been through in all the confusion and . . . well, she’s a wreck!  I don’t know if she’s laughing or crying!

I’m standing in for her so she can rest, and, as she puts it, “get back my equilibrium”.  That’s pronounced ee-kwa-LIB-ree-um.  It means “not be a total nut.”

Okay, I’m supposed to give you three messages. 

P1120107

First of all, RVSue wants to apologize to you.

You didn’t do anything wrong.  RVSue feels really bad that the door to this blog was slammed in your face without any warning.  Terrible!  We were shocked, too!  She says she would never do that on purpose and she’s very sorry.  Please accept her sincere apology.

Now the second thing RVSue wants me to tell you.

P1120159

She hates log-in boxes and passwords!

She was told by The Blog Wizards Who Are In Control that she had to use it because there are bad robots that want to sneak into our blog and make trouble and that was the only way she could get the blog running again.  The internet is a crazy place!  She hasn’t had a chance to investigate whether the box and password stuff has to stay or whether we can leave it off.

And the third message from RVSue . . .

Thank you for caring about us.  We received many messages of concern and support from family, friends, reader-friends, fellow bloggers — lots of people!

P1120132-001

I like it when people are nice. 

Not like those sneaky robots!  See the pretty flowers in the picture above?  The flowers are YOU and those sticks in the front are the bad robots trying to tear us apart.

We won’t let them do that! 

RVSue says she will never make this a private blog or shut you out on purpose.  If anything like this recent mess happens again, it isn’t her doing, okay?   When the day comes that this blog comes to an end, she will explain and say a proper and loving goodbye, not just drop out.  That’s a promise!

In case you’re wondering, Reggie is fine.

What energy he has!  Here he is playing with one of his new toys.  I think this toy is named “Your Baby” because it’s the one Reggie picks up when RVSue says, “Reggie!  Stop pestering.  Go play with your baby.”

P1120163

I’m also fine. 

I know my many subjects… er . . . I mean, my fans . . . worried about me.   Here’s a recent photo of me in my car.

P1120194

Don’t worry.  I’m not hurting.  Sometimes I just like to be treated royally.  Know what I mean?

Okay, that’s it for now.

I’m going to stop.  I need to check on RVSue.  If she doesn’t bite my head off, that means she’s getting better!  Haha!  Between RVSue and Reggie, I have my paws full!

P1120124-001

RVSue can’t stay away from you long. 

She will blog the same as always soon.  She’s going to tell you about my special campground (Bridge Campground, north of Pagosa Springs) and also about our present boondock in the aspens.

Best wishes to you all.

We love you!

Bridget

  1. Suzette (TN) says:

    Can’t be first, can I?

  2. So glad to see you back!

  3. Kathy N in Michigan says:

    Thanks for the update Bridget. We are just happy you are all back. Please let Sue now that ‘stuff’ happens. A joy of the internet.

  4. Vicky in PA says:

    Thanks for the update Bridge! So glad RVSue and Crew are back, I missed you all!!

  5. Judith camper says:

    Glad your back. Those robots are just plain awful. You and Reggie will have to chase them off if they come near again. Take care of Sue. I’m sure she will calm down ,eventually.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Judith camper,

      I’m fine now that I’m with you again. I was a wreck yesterday. Shut my laptop, “I’ve had enough of this!” and then a few minutes later apparently, the restriction was lifted and I didn’t know it. A restless night followed by a glorious morning!

  6. We were worried about you.

  7. Noelle says:

    Hello Sue, I’m Noelle from Tucson, a Lurker. 🙂 I tried to contact WordPress about the issue with the login mess, and boy, it was darned near impossible if one hasn’t got a blog with them! I wasn’t sure how much you knew about our travails on the outside and worried about you losing some much- needed Amazon income. Phew, glad to see all is well this am! Always enjoy your blog, thanks so much for bringing us your adventures. 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Welcome, Noelle. Well, that’s one good thing that came out of this confusion… You are here! I think we have two blogorinos named Noelle now, unless you commented a long time ago.

      Thank you for your concern for me, the crew, and the Amazon income. Yes, it took a hit, but not too bad. It sounds like you experienced a bit of what I was going through.

      To clarify in case anyone is considering WordPress now or in the future…. The problem didn’t involve WordPress. It was a restriction placed by my web host.

      • Noelle from Tucson says:

        I may have commented once before…not sure. That’s interesting that it wasn’t WordPress. Still, wouldn’t kill them to have a Contact Us button you can use if you’re just their guest, but maybe they don’t want to hear it! My son’s father and I maintain a little website in his honor, and after nine years of no problems, our site went down this year for a week or so. Still am not sure what happened, but I know it was a hassle – and a process of discovery to learn how many entities have their hands in our site!

  8. mayble says:

    hallelujah!

  9. Bridget, thank you for letting us blogorinos know what’s going on AND thanks for looking after RV Sue! I can only imagine how frustrated and upset she must be, and I’m sure you are a great comfort to her. Glad to hear you’re doing well, wishing you all a lovely day!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Linda. The three of us are doing great this morning! All is calm. (Bridget’s post was written yesterday.)

      You have a lovely day, too!

  10. Rochelle says:

    First time commenter – I, too, was dismayed when your blog went wonky. I really enjoy reading it. I think you should get Reggie a robot toy and let him destroy it. LOL

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Ha! That’s a great idea! Saves me having to stick pins in a robot!

      Welcome to blogorinoland, Rochelle! Stop in again … anytime!

    • Krystina ~ Sutton, Vermont says:

      Welcome to RVSue’s Blog Rochelle!

  11. What a relief to see you all this morning!

  12. Jenny Johnson Manuel says:

    I was almost first!!!!! Thank you Bridget for a great post — and for keeping us updated on RV Sue–I can understand when something happens to make us say a bad word or two—-Been there myself — Hopefully this will pass — Take care of Reggie and don’t let him get into trouble.

  13. Janis Harrison says:

    So sorry for all of these internet troubles Sue, thanks for looking out for us…..I am home form the southern Utah tour I was the SOB of the group(some other brand) so happy to be traveling with the Casita group again. The tour was awesome, Don Taylor does such a great job.However,I think this kind of traveling is too much for me right now I am feeling very old LOL.My next surgery is in August so now to rest up and prepare for it. I will live vicariously through your great blog for quite a while so this is a very extra thank you!!!!!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re welcome. I’m glad you had a great tour, Janis. Casita people are friendly and fun. RVing with a group is probably more tiring because of the excitement being around others and the pace is different than when traveling alone.

      Yes, rest up and read my blog! 🙂

  14. Linda-NC says:

    Second? And I know that can’t be right! Must be those crazy robots!
    Bridget you are so talented. Very good narrative of the current state of chaos.
    Sue, I hope that you are getting things straightened out and are back with another adventure. You do have an excellent guest blogger but you are missed.
    Take a deep breath, curse the internet rules of engagement and we will be looking forward to the next post. Have a relaxing weekend.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I like your phrasing… “current state of chaos.” Oh yeah, glad that’s over!

      And “internet rules of engagement.” It’s a battle sometimes!

      Thank you, Linda. You have a relaxing weekend, too.

  15. Barb L (Knoxville) says:

    Welcome back! Don’t post much, but enjoy your great blog. DH and I travel with our pup, Yoshi, and are in our 6th year fulltime. Spend most of our time in the the southwest and look forward to exploring some of the boondock sites you’ve enjoyed. Our last house was near Knoxville and we’re here visiting friends and family..

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Barb L.! Good to see you here!

      Six years… You’re ahead of me and the crew. I hope you enjoy the boondocks. I wonder sometimes if they will be as nice for readers as they were for us… not too crowded, I hope.

      Regards to your husband and to Yoshi!

  16. Carol in MT says:

    Nice to see the blog up. Always good to hear from you, Bridget. Hang in there, Sue will settle down now that things are back on track. She and Reggie need your cool head in these situations. Good job!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Carol,

      Bridget is my rock. She looks at me with an expression, “What’s your problem? Everything will be okay.” 🙂

      And Reggie is a burst of cheer. At one point I stomped out to the “back yard” and plopped down in my lounger with steam coming out my ears. Reggie brings Bite Me over (who, BTW, came out of surgery just fine). I toss Bite Me for him to fetch. After a while I’m laughing at Reggie….

  17. Barb from Hoquiam says:

    Hi Bridget!!!! So glad you are back! Those pesky internet creeps have to make it so hard!!!
    We love you guys!!!!
    Hugs from Hoquiam
    Barb

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Love you, too, Barb, and those warm hugs from Hoquiam!

      Sending the same to you with a big wish for a wonderful weekend…

  18. Carol in Frisco, TX says:

    Good morning Bridget, Sue and Reggie! First time to ever post, (guess that we would be called ‘lurkers’) but we (Husband and I) are avid readers and followers of your blog. And, we are very happy that you are back up and running. I was so concerned that we would not be able to read about your adventures and worried about how ya’ll were doing. Like others, I tried to figure out how to get back in, but nearly impossible to do. Thrilled this morning when I clicked and did not get a pop-up window!

    Thanks so much for sharing your lives with us, Sue, you are a wonderful writer and the photos of the Crew really make me smile. As well as the beautiful scenic photos. What a treasure to be able to share via the blog.

    Keep safe and be happy. Will follow along vicariously, just know that you have a lot of folks thinking about you and the Crew!

    Happy Trails

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good morning, Carol, from the three of us, and welcome to comments! You are now a blogorino!

      Thanks to you and your husband for reading my blog and for your concern while this little train went off its track. The compliment on my writing and photography is very encouraging.

      Do stop in again any time! 🙂

    • Krystina ~ Sutton, Vermont says:

      It is official…you are now a Blogerino!! Welcome.

  19. Linda (Wisconsin) says:

    Hi Bridget, thanks for letting us know what was going on with RV Sue and the blog. I found RVSue’s message over at the Bayfield Bunch so knew what was going on. The silver lining here is that I found some new RVing blogs while searching for news of the crew. You’re looking good in your car, Bridget. Take care and I’m looking forward to hearing all about your campground.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Bridget accepts the compliment and wishes you well, Linda. 🙂

      “Travel with the Bayfield Bunch” is a good place to check when the crew and I are in a muddle like this. Al kindly mentioned my blog being down and I was able to communicate via his shout box.

  20. Wendy in Thailand says:

    So good to be able so see you guys again. Take care.

  21. Pauline in Mississippi says:

    WHAT A RELIEF!!!! I know Susan has worked so hard trying to get this blog back up and running. It has been very frustrating and that is an understatement. I told her that you all would be waiting for her when she got things resolved and sure enough, here you are!!!!
    Thanks Bridget for the update! Sending you, RVSue and Reggie lots of love and big hugs.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Love and big hugs to you, too, Pauline! If I had half the technical expertise you possess, this mess wouldn’t have happened. So glad it’s over!

      Have a great weekend!

  22. Cat Lady finally on the road in TN says:

    Woohoo! Sue and Crew’s back online! I was having some serious withdrawals, Sue. Good to have ya’ll back.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thank you, Cat Lady…. I hope the road in Tennessee is smooth and takes you to wonderful places!

  23. weather says:

    Bridget has her sane RVSue back, Reggie has new toys, you have the blog working-how wonderful that all’s well in your world! Are you still at the nice boondock on the ridge, and planning to stay there for a while or move? While all the confusion went on about accessing this place to stay in touch, I thought “Well, she probably has whatever they need-food, propane, a nice place to be safe and enjoy some time in-so I’m not concerned”

    Hopefully, you have all of that and more 🙂 Have a blessed day and relax, you’ve earned it. Thanks for restoring our internet road back to visit you.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re welcome, weather,

      Thank you for this and also for the message you left under the previous post. We’re still on the ridge among the aspens with everything we need. It was good that I was able to stock up at Wal-Mart in Cortez on the way to this area. For water and trash disposal, Bridge Campground is nearby. We’re on the second bottle of propane. Weather is perfect so I don’t have to turn on the heater which means the propane will last. These are only a few of our many blessings. 🙂

      I hope your weekend is wonderful! Maybe you’ll take the T@B somewhere soon…

      • weather says:

        Being an early riser I imagine you especially enjoy the cooler temps of morning among the aspens there. Reading your note below I understood your mixed reaction of gladness and empathy to so many of the comments being about not finding this site open to reach for a while. I hope realizing that everyone is still here and that they were calmed by knowing that you aren’t vanishing from their life, you were able to rest easy and well.

        By now you know that I rest more easily when I know you have everything you need( that explains in part my message to you under the previous post), so thank you for explaining how well supplied you and the crew are. Part of my weekend will include painting some walls. That’s not my favorite activity yet the results make for a happier environment so it’s worth it. It’s like bringing shafts of light into places that needed to be brightened. That’s what your blog does for your readers’ days 🙂 !, what a wonderful way to use your gifts…

        • Sydney in FL says:

          That was so wonderfully put! Couldn’t have said it anywhere near as eloquently; though, I will add that sometimes we don’t have a full appreciation for people “in our daily lives” until they are gone. I’m glad it was just a couple of days, and I now have a greater appreciation for the happiness RVSueandCrew bring to my daily life with their wonderful blog. No pressure, RVSue!!! 😉

  24. Cheryl O.- Puget Sound says:

    I was worried I might have lost your blog. Happy Friday everybody.

  25. Beki in Iowa says:

    Long time reader, first time responder here, but I just wanted to say “Welcome back!”

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Beki, and welcome to you! I appreciate you being a long time reader of my blog. I hope we will see you here again. Warm wishes to you in Iowa!

  26. Well dang. I thought being here so early would get me first place, but no. There are obviously people who get up earlier than I do. Unbelievable! I do have to say Sue, you are read far and wide and I ran across several who were wondering along with the rest of us what the heck all that sign in stuff was about, and many were worried about you. Glad all is well now. Good to have you back and know everything is all right.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Shawna,

      I hate that I caused such concern because of my struggle to fix my blog. My web host company shut it down because of a spike in usage and I was told I’d better fix the problem. Trouble was… What to fix? I hadn’t added anything to the blog to cause an increase. I have a spam filter. Everything seemed normal and then, BOOM! No more blog! Now go fix it!

      Turns out a ten-minute fix took 2 days to discover and implement… Internet stuff can be very frustrating, to say the least!

      Again I’m sorry about all this and that dang “sign in stuff” was not something I wanted. I read a complaint about it on another blog (“not going to sign in for a blog”) which added to my upset. Oh well, we’re back. Just another adventure…

  27. Sandy says:

    YAY!!! So happy you’re back!

  28. milliehubbard says:

    So glad you and the crew are back. I knew Bridgie would figure out what was going on with the blog and set things “straight” 🙂

    May we all have safe travels in the blogosphere!!

  29. Kristine Barr says:

    Thought I did something to worry you. Anyway, glad your back. That last picture of Bridget is wonderful.

  30. christina says:

    thanks for the update. I wondered what happened… Glad its fixed now. i enjoy your travels alot.

  31. Jean in Southaven says:

    I am glad everything is ok today. I know how frustrated I was yesterday when it kept asking for a sign in but not giving me any way to set one up. Of course, I did not already have a sign in so I did not get in. I even tried to go to someone elses blog that I know stays in touch with you so I could leave a message for you thru them, but that didn’t work either. All is well that ends well I guess. SOOOOO glad to have you back.

  32. kgdan from Wapato, WA says:

    So happy to see you back! Was very concerned and had to muddle through trying to find out why we lost you.

    G and I are at the tail end of our fabulous so far 17 day fishing/camping trip. We have camped at Blue Lake but left because no fish. Spent a day at Lake Roosevelt (Grand Coulee Dam) where G caught a nice trout and a silver. Crossed the lake via Keller’s ferry and traveled to Republic, WA., where they were celebrating Prospector’s Days. Next we landed at Bonaparte Lake, just north of Hwy 20.It is a beautiful and tranquil place with lots of fish to catch. G smoked some trout while we were there. They turned out to be delicious. We departed after 10 days there. The last day was very dramatic as a storm blew in and pelted the campground with hail. Of course, G was out on the lake fishing when the storm blew in. Brrrrr! Now we are camped at Cascade Park at Moses Lake. It’s a very nice park run by the city but currently under revision, so campsites are limited. Supposed to be lots of walleye here. We will see.

    Expect to arrive back home on Sunday which will be Father’s Day and our 40th anniversary.

    So happy to have you back in contact, RV Sue!

    • Barbara (Nashville) says:

      Happy 40th anniversary on Sunday KG & Gil. Your trip sounds like a great time..

    • Linda from Oregon says:

      Happy anniversary. Glad Gil caught some fish and I am sure you enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

    • Barbara from Camano Island says:

      Is Keller’s ferry at Kettle Falls? And is there a road from Wauconda into Bonaparte Lake? Thanks for any information. I might be camping in that area soon. (But I don’t fish.)

  33. Diane (western Oklahoma) says:

    I’m a lurker, too, and had missed a few days of postings. Coincidentally, I had also spent a frustrating day of “upgrading” my computer to Microsoft 10. So when I finally got a chance to check in with RV Sue and Crew yesterday, I got the annoying username and password requirement. I was fearful that either this was a problem with Microsoft 10 or that I had missed something important on the blog during the last couple of days about requiring sign-ins. So I was super happy to see things back to normal this morning. I’ll go back to lurking and enjoying! (BTW, Sue, I read your blog not because I want to be a vagabond but because I am a fan of small-space, thrifty living and a big-time pet-lover!)

  34. Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

    What a relief! First I had intermittent errors on your blog, then the password thingy. I even emailed Itty Bitty Living to see if she was getting the same. Yes, she said! She pinpointed exactly the issue – private blog. So glad you are not doing this. So many passwords, then another to remember? I kept wondering how you would find out that none of us could get in. I’m assuming that you have one contact that knows your private email or phone to test the site when you need them to, so they can alert you when needed. Well, the beautiful pictures and seeing Bridgey and Reggie happy makes up for all of it. Welcome back. Looking forward to seeing more pictures of your current and future camping areas.

  35. Glad you’re back–both to find out how you’re doing now, and because I’m still catching up with your past blogging. It’s what I read at night, and I really missed it. I’ve still got something wonky going on with our network, because the only way I can read this is on cell data. Cheers, Steve.

  36. Oh, Bridge, I adore you.

  37. Doug Laning says:

    Glad you’re back. Beautiful photo of Williams Creek.

  38. ValGal (westernWA) says:

    Blog problems are sooo maddening! Especially security related ones. Sending you hugs and soothing thoughts. Hope it all gets sorted soonest.

    Reggie loves his toys. Your Baby is cute.

    Waving to you all wherever you are.

  39. Val R. Lakefield On. says:

    Whew! Glad your back. Thanks for the update Bridget

  40. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    Yeah! I am so happy you are back. Your wonderful writing and pictures take me away from life’s stress for a while. Bridget, you were so good to fill us in, take care of Sue and Reggie. I want to also thank Al for letting us all know there was a blog issue and not just us.

  41. Pat from Mich. says:

    My son the computer expert told me it was probably an internal error, so I was relieved…and VERY happy to see the blog on as normal today. Bridget, I love those little sideways looks you give. You deserve to be pampered!

  42. AlanOutandAbout - Alpine AZ. says:

    So glad your back. As you know you were sorely missed.
    Enjoy.

  43. Geri says:

    YAY! WELCOME BACK! WE MISSED YOU AND CREW TOO! YAY!!!

  44. Yahoo Bridget we sure are glad to hear that you and Sue’s blog is back and Reggie too,,, we were worried that Sue got hacked and never to read or keep in touch with you 3 and all the blogeroo’s again and we would greatly miss the the neat posts, pictures of your travels, ,,,,, have a beautiful blessed day Bridget, Reggie and Sue!!! ,,,,,,,,,,, Piper n me

  45. Jack says:

    Yippee!!! you’re back

  46. Gail on the Olympic Peninsula says:

    Hi Sue and Bridget and Reggie ! When I clicked on your blog this morning and it opened, I was so happy ! It is amazing how much happiness you spread with your tales of adventures and beautiful photos . It was certainly a good thing that you had your canine crew with you to ease the way, and keep you sane during that stressful time – our furry friends add so much to our lives.
    Looking forward to all your coming adventures – a sincere “welcome back”. 🙂

  47. Linda in TX says:

    So glad you made it back. Technical issues just make steam come out of my ears. I hadn’t seen your previous post, either, and I just have to say how much I enjoyed the photos. Have a happy and peaceful outdoorsy weekend with your little ones.

  48. WI & FL Beverly says:

    Loved today’s post and the blog’s return. Always get a chuckle when the dogs take over the blog. You’re such a great writer Sue.

  49. Dawn in Asheville, NC says:

    So glad you are back! Odd requirement of your web host….
    I do WP sites every day, all day long, and I will say there has been an uptic lately in sites being infested with malware and being subject to brute force attacks, but the host I use primarily for our sites has never required that. Just took down the site until it was cleaned, or made administration login unavailable if it was a brute force attack. If you don’t have it I would recommend you look into Sucuri – just this morning had an issue with a site that isn’t high traffic, completely up to date, etc. Don’t mean to scare you, just what I’ve been noticing across the sites I manage. If you are ever in an emergency again and just need someone to help sort things, or vent, feel free to poke me 🙂

  50. Glad you are back Sue! Love seeing the beautiful photos of Bridget and Reggie and the flowers. Maya wants Bridget to know that she is a princess too, and loves to be pampered. She misses being on the road and so do I!

  51. AZ Jim says:

    I had no idea how addicted I have become to your blog until the blackout. Missy I kept checking and checking each time to be greeted by that damned login screen. I know you had many hours of problem solving to get back up. Sorry for your stress but happy you are here again! Be well….

  52. Wheelingit says:

    Great to see you back. I saw the box come up yesterday and thought “oh no, I hope she hasn’t been hacked!”. I’m glad you got through it, but I’m sure it was stressful!

    Nina

  53. Kristi & Daisie (Nampa, ID) says:

    Have to tell you that your locked-down blog caused quite a stir on the “Women Who RV” Facebook page. Never knew there were so many RVSue fans in that group! It was nice to discover everyone. And because of the “stir” we made, I think we managed to get several more ladies interested in your blog. So there may be a silver lining to this mayhem after all. 😉

  54. Cinandjules (NY) says:

    Glad you’re up and running….I’ll be back later!

    • Hi Cindy and Jules, when my last PC crashed and died I lost
      All of my contacts, so I am sorry for not emailing you 2, I don’t even have Sue’s, so the only way I can contact anyone is on Sue’s blog, , without Sue’s blog, I am lost and missing all of you. I have a new email address it is; ladypiper15@gmail.com , so now I can get back all my contacts that I lost,,,, love you both,,,,,,, Piper n rusty

  55. Marcia GB in MA says:

    Sorry for your blog woes and very glad you are back and your words of wisdom are available once again ? I was able to read your blog without having to put in my password. Good thing because I don’t remember it!

  56. Rhodium in RI says:

    Happy to see the three of you back. I guess you are seeing some of the disadvantages of scale, like when somebody running a company from her garage gets a huge order. I’ve seen some blogs (I’m thinking of Bill McBride’s Calculated Risk) have a volunteer do some of the computer work, like you have a friend who is the solar expert. Anyway, what I was really wondering about, was now that you are in Colorado, do you think some vet formulated cannibus cookies might help with Bridget’s sore leg? Usually medicines get tested on animals first, then people, but not THC. Some dog owners claim to see good results in older animals.

    • Rhodium in RI says:

      Oops, I can draw the structure of THC, but I can’t spell cannabis.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks for the suggestion, Rhodium. Bridget’s leg injury flares up, I give her pain relief, it’s over after one dose. Adding cookies to her diet introduces other possibilities, i.e. loose stools, Reggie wants some, too, obtaining the supply while camped in remote areas, etc.

      • Velda in Roseville CA says:

        If you were to research the possibilities because you needed an alternative, low THC / high CBD is the pain reducing route and can be obtained in a glycerin based tincture and dose would be tiny amounts and the bottle would last a very long time. Just a thought for future if needed. A single tiny bottle could last more than a year. Seems like what you do works for you so this is just info for just in case you were curious.

  57. MollyLuvsRoadtrippin (WA) says:

    Lovely to have you all back! Honestly I wasn’t worried at all because I can tell how conscientious you are about maintaining your excellent blog and we ALL have pesty tech issues from time to time. So I just checked now and then and presto you were almost back and then YIPPEE all the way back!

    I’m so pleased you are showing us Colorado this season – I haven’t traveled there but definitely want to. Can’t wait to enjoy this preview of this part of the country with your beautiful photos and engaging stories. Thanks Sue!!

  58. Deena in Peoria, AZ says:

    Good morning Bridget, very nice job updating the Blogorino World. Thank Reggie for helping bring laughter back to Sue when she needs an uplift. Miss Mollie is getting inpatient for her own carriage and I will be ordering her’s soon and will remember to go through Sue’s link to Amazon.
    Very glad ya’ll are able to go back to enjoying your lives.

    Deena and Miss Mollie

  59. Bodhi says:

    I’m really glad to see y’all are back in the groove. ??

  60. Glad you’re all back! Nicely done Ms B – we’re fortunate that Sue has you to fill in as needed. Looking forward to seeing and hearing about your recent digs.

  61. Glad that got worked out! Look forward to yr posts! Wish I was there! The undertone here is not good. Love the pictures

  62. Judy J. in upstate S.C. says:

    Whew! So glad you’re back. I’m so addicted to your site and was badly needing my daily “fix”! Guess we were all kind of panicking. Now, we’ll all settle down. Just know how much you are treasured.

  63. Carol in the Finger Lakes says:

    Whew! now I can order some more Benchmark maps!

    By the way, this sign in thing is not the only problem I’ve had reaching your site over the last month. There have been intermittent peculiar screens from Hostgator over the past few weeks, and several times I’ve been unable to get in for a full day or more. Change hosts, maybe? Aargh! what a pain!

    Okay, the time machine is idling in the background, back to May 2015. Closing in on the present.

    Carol

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      “peculiar screens”… If you don’t mind me asking, specifically what messages did you receive?

      • I received a screen for my username and password,put I my WordPress info ,then it came back empty screen and told me I was denied access and suspended!!! I knew it was a spam blocker robot run amuck!
        We love you Sue!

      • Carol in the Finger Lakes says:

        I don’t recall the details, but they were from Hostgator, and gave a list to click on of different things, very technical, that you might do to correct some problem preventing you from getting through (sorry to be so vague). I’m not technically sophisticated enough to remember the details. Each suggestion I clicked on brought up a page of internet gobbledygook. (To me!)

  64. Airstreaming Pagey says:

    Thank you for posting, Bridget!

    Glad to read that all is well. I have toyed with the idea of blogging, but the more I read about the problems various bloggers have had posting, the less the idea appeals.

  65. Linda from Oregon says:

    I was so worried. I thought you had blocked me and I had done something wrong. I tried so many ways to find out how to get in. Then I asked Kathy and Gil and she said she couldn’t get in either. Kathy never does anything wrong so I knew it was the website. Just glad you all are okay.

  66. Debra (CO) says:

    Hi Sue! So glad to see your blog back up and running. Our internet/computers are wonderful technology when they work, but watch out when they don’t. 🙁 It’s so distressful how many hours it can take to get to the bottom of a problem and fix it – especially for us amateurs! Looking forward to reading more of your travels in CO.
    Debra

  67. Kat says:

    I am so relieved you are back, I was going into RVSue and Crew withdrawal yesterday!

  68. rvsueandcrew says:

    WOW! I’m overwhelmed with your messages! You all are very kind to let me know we were missed and to welcome us back like this.

    I need to spend some time away from the computer and with the crew. Please forgive me for not replying individually. Feel free to discuss with each other. I’ll read every comment before the day is over.

    I see the sun shining through the trees outside our window. We’re going outside! 🙂

    Thank again everyone!

    Sue

    • Sue, I’m quite sure every person in this group would definitely sign in with a password if it ever came to that. We would certainly miss you if you went missing because of that. Welcome to Colorado. 🙂

  69. Dawn in NC says:

    Thanks for the update Bridget! You did a great job of keeping a calm head in the midst’s of Sue’s chaos with the blog. Sue, I’m so glad that you’re back. I didn’t realize how much I rely on the blog for a smile until I couldn’t log on for a while. I was also worried about your Amazon sales. I keep coveting a pair of Keen shoes from there. As soon as I have the funds, I will order them through your blog. I was surprised by some of your comments the other day. Then I thought, I have lots of friends with different world view points…it’s what makes life great having people challenge your own thoughts. Anyway, I digress. Thanks so much for getting the blog fix. Don’t worry about losing us. We were all waiting and are still here when you got back!

    • A gal in Maple Valley, WA says:

      I thought the site was hacked because of that conversation. We may never know.

  70. Karen LeMoine says:

    Bridget thanks for your post. Was very concerned about you guys. Glad all is well. Was worried your Mom blocked me for some reason lol. Just kidding. Thought maybe a hacker threw a wrench into the system or something. Bet a lot were freaked out too. We can all breath easier knowing OUR favorite blogger is back!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Awe Bridge,we love you !!! And tell your Mom we all knew it was not her doing!!!You are taking good care of everything !! Give Mom hugs and Pup Kisses!! 🙂

  72. Martha in PA says:

    Bridget, if you are in control I know the blog will be fine. SO GLAD you are back!!! All’s right with the world.

  73. Yay, it is sogood to here from you. And to be able to read the entire post. We were so confused bbby the login box. Maybe a “capture” (what are these letters) box would work if it is necessary. I am sure this must have been a trying few days.

  74. judy in east texas says:

    Good morning RVSUEANDCREW….so glad to see you back…i thought i was going to have to call my doctor for some kind of nerve pill!! i was in a panic not able to read your blog and knowing there was one out there and i still could not read it! visited a couple of my RV facebook groups to see if anyone knew about what was going on…..no one did and all were just as freaked as me! lol in the mean time i think i nabbed you a few more readers, they are starting at the beginning, since we could go back to the original blog and read!

    Bridge, please tell Sue there was no need to for apologies, i knew Sue would never desert us or block us from her blog! But thanks for all you do to take care of her.

    Well, i have to get back to work 🙁 so,

    Stay safe out there and ROCK ON, judy

  75. I absolutely love Colorado! I would love to camp there some day but I will live vicariously through you and the dogs for now!

  76. Montsweag says:

    Hi RV Sue
    I was surprised that the blog all of a sudden needed a password (which of course I had no idea what to do then). I did think it must be a web host error and decided to try again today. So happy that all is back to normal for us readers.
    Love your blog, love your dogs….
    Montsweag in Maine

  77. Sharon aka as SKCCoast says:

    Wow, that was scary…don’t post a lot but read your blog a lot!
    Thanks Bridget, a great job on the update!

  78. Terri From Texas says:

    RVSue, you are hilarious! Yesterday I even registered on the Casita Blog to find out what was happening with your blog! And I don’t even own a casita! Anyway, I did enjoy reading some of the posts and I found out what I needed to know about your blog, which is what I needed. Talk about an addiction! Ha! Glad to find out all is well-and I love your campgrounds. Give Miss. Bridget and Mr. Reggie a pat from me!
    Take care.

    Terri

  79. Sydney in Hobe Sound, FL says:

    Well, this Friday just went from a good Friday to a Great Friday after clicking on the link with success and then being greeted and treated to a post from the wonderfully wise Bridge!!!

    I hope your stress levels have receded. I think this hiccup goes to show that your followers will still be there through any trials and tribulations the internet throws into the mix.

    Thank you for going through all that you must have gone through to get back up and running as your blog brings me happiness whenever I see a post waiting in my emails!

    Happy Friday, RV Sue and Crew!!!

  80. Colleen/Maryland says:

    RvSue and Crew… SOO SOO happy to see you all back !! I had a little panic attack when I clicked on your Blog SPOT and you didn’t open up!!!! And very glad nothing BAD happen to you all. I missed you !!!!

  81. LeeJ in Northern California says:

    Wow..what a mess! All we had to do was try your blog periodically to see if it was back..while you, my dear, must have been struggling away to ge things back up and running……thanks you so much for your persistence…

    RVSue rocks!

  82. Pam Avery says:

    Happy, happy, joy, joy! RV Sue and crew are back!

  83. Mick'nTN says:

    You always wonder what the REAL reason is when a service provider pulls some trick. They always say it is for your benefit … sure!

  84. Linda Rose, Muffin, Murphy, Molly & Midgy says:

    Yay, so glad all is back to normal today. I was very very sure yesterday’s problem was not caused by You! Love that last picture of the creek. I think that will be my new wallpaper on my PC to celebrate your save return to us blogorinos.

  85. Ladybug in Mid-Tenn says:

    All I know is, if that had happened to ME, I would have had a case of the vapors!

  86. Laurie Herndon says:

    Hi RVSue & furkids…
    We all out here in cyberspace knew you wouldn’t be gone long. Sometimes technology and mother nature mix it up like oil & water… Loving your blog for over 5 years now. Give your fur babies a big hug from me!

  87. Chris B in Southern California says:

    Is the time correct on this blog? Suzette started off at 5:38 AM and others immediately followed? Wow! You were missed, Sue! Glad that everything is back to normal. Your surroundings look beautiful. Colorado has some beautiful areas.

  88. Brenda in Texas says:

    So glad that you guys are back. Missed hearing from you…

  89. retiredcajunlady says:

    Not a lot I can add to all the lovely messages, Bridget! Please let Sue know how happy I am to know things are back to normal. Another beautiful spot; thanks for the pictures. Be well and enjoy the beauty around you all.

  90. Cinandjules (NY) says:

    Well then….up and running and Bridgee babee is the guest blogger! What a sweet message! Glad everything has returned to normal.

    I told you we’d be right here waiting on ya’ll! Have a great day. Welcome back and I too have to admit I constantly checked at least a zillion times to see if the blog was up!

    Oh yeah….to Mr Robot….bless your heart (haven’t had to “bless ” anyone lately) and don’t let that door hit you on your way out!

    Blogorino strong! No ones raining on our parade!

  91. Marlene says:

    Welcome back Sue, Bridget and Reggie!!! Whew!
    I am a “lurker” too. I’ve been following your blog for about a year give or take. I didn’t realize how much I love following your adventures and how addicted I am to checking in on you and the crew until I couldn’t connect to your blog. I kept trying and trying and googling things to figure it out. I decided that poor you must have been hacked or that my computer had a virus. The joy I felt when I could connect today was uplifting! (I know, I must sound nuts!). My first time commenting here so I want you to know that I hope to get on the road and try out RV life when I retire in November and that you are an inspiration to me. I have learned so much from you and I am a dog-lover to boot. So glad you’re back. Go celebrate with a big ice cream sundae!

    • Dawn in NC says:

      You’re now officially a blogorino! Welcome Marlene!

      • Marlene says:

        Thank you for the welcome Dawn. I won’t be so hesitant to comment any more. Proud to be one of Sue & Crew’s Blogorinos!

    • AZ Jim says:

      No more just lurking Marlene, you need to share with us. Welcome to Sue’s Blog. If you have been reading you know she is loved by us all and a part of my wife and I’s life though we’ve never met her in real life, but we know her heart.

      • Marlene says:

        Thanks for the Welcome! Yes, I’ve been a lurker and had never commented as a Blogorino until today. Yes, I feel like Sue and her pups are like a good friend. Reading her blogs are like comfort food or curling up and reading a good book. I didn’t realize how much I truly look forward to reading her posts until she was gone!! What a great writer Sue is!

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          You have received a very honorable welcome, Marlene! AZ Jim is one of the nicest guys on the planet and he’s always ready to stick up for a friend. Love that guy!

          Welcome from me and the crew! You wrote nice things about my blog… Thank you.

  92. Speed Gray says:

    Wow! Great to be back on this site! It’s amazing how the routine pleasure of checking out RVSandC becomes a part of your existance and how it is so missed when it goes away!

    Tell Sue and the pooches to settle down and get back to enjoying life again! Semitruck loads of thanks for all she does for her readers!

  93. Cynthia in San Clemente says:

    Oh my gosh – it absolutely made my day when I was able to get on the blog today!! Thank you Bridget, for sort of explaining what happened.

    I’ve been trying to get on the blog for three days and when I got the “access denied” message from hell, at first I thought, “OK, what did I do or say that ticked Sue off?” Wracked my brain for 24 hours but couldn’t remember doing anything unduly obnoxious. Next day, I went on my husband’s computer (which uses a different email address) and got the same message from hell. I then realized it wasn’t me, but maybe Sue’s blog didn’t like our modem or something like that. Yesterday, I took my iPad and drove to Starbucks and used their wifi to try and get on the blog and got the same message from hell. By then I was close to hysterical because I could not, for the life of me, figure out how to contact Sue. I kept thinking, if this is a system-wide problem, surely she will notice she isn’t getting comments???

    This has truly been an AWFUL experience. I was worried sick about Sue and you and Reggie, and I was selfishly thinking I would never be able to get on the blog again, and why is this happening and not getting fixed? and there was no one to complain to! Ok, I’m going to take a deep breath now and even though it’s only noon, I’m seriously considering making a batch of margaritas because after all, it is Friday and all is well in the world again. Well, at least in my little world.

  94. Edie in Colorado says:

    Hey Sue,
    I really thought I had messed up somewhere when I couldn’t get access to your blog. I thought “That’s what I get for being a lurker” if your still in Colorado I’d like to suggest you consider a visit to the Sand Wash Basin to see the wild horses. I was there in May and might try to head back there in the fall after I retire. Yup, I’m going to join the ranks and try to get more adventures in, you have been my inspiration. Meanwhile you relax, we will all still be here. Hugs to you and the crew.
    Edie

  95. Leesa (IA) says:

    Welcome back!! I tried in vain to open your blog and was worried something had happened, with the weather and the wild fires that are going on it tends to make one worry. Happy to hear all is well and it was just a computer thing. Bridget does such a lovely job when Sue needs a break. Glad to see Reggie was not effected by the recent glitch and was happily playing with his new toys. Need to catch up now on the blogs I missed out on – gardening takes up soooo much time as you know I tend to get behind.

  96. Cynthia in San Clemente says:

    I just went back and looked at the posts I wasn’t able to access the last few days. That last photo of Bridget on the June 14th post is so regal. Reminded me a bit of Queen Elizabeth sitting for her 90th birthday portrait, except Bridget is much cuter. I’m so glad you are all ok and the absence was just a computer/server/webhoster/whatever glitch. Hope you have a peaceful, beautiful weekend recovering from the frustation. Hugs to the entire crew.

  97. Kitt, NW WA says:

    Sue,
    Oh, my goodness, I thought I had been totally banned from your blog! I can’t tell you how happy I am to find that is not so. After following you faithfully for 4+ years I was suffering great angst at the thought that I might never be able to read about your adventures again.
    Technology is magical when it works, when it doesn’t it is a royal pain in the neck. Very glad you and the crew are back. I hope you all are enjoying a calm and peaceful day, surrounded by some magnificent scenery.
    Kitt

  98. Betty says:

    Hi, Sue and Crew,
    I was really having a panic attack yesterday when I found I was blocked out and could not access the post. What login? What password? Finally decided to calm down and wait until morning and see what developed. Pondered the problem all evening and decided to email ‘Cheap RV Living’ Bob or Becky at ‘Interstellar Orchard’ to see if they could get an email to you. Thankfully when I logged on this morning the problem had been resolved and we are once again reconnected to our Happy Wanderers.
    I am not able to check my emails daily so did not know this had been going on for a while. I guess this gives you a good idea of how much we look forward to your blog and the wonderful travels you share with us. (They are the first emails I read when I log on.) Love the antics of the darling duo, too, as the seem to be your Abbott and Costello comic relief.
    I really love the information you provide about the campgrounds and free sites you find and look forward to using some of it on future travels of my own.
    Happy travels. Betty

  99. Rick & Brock the dog, WA says:

    Hi Sue!
    So glad you’re blog is back up. I figured it was a bot or hack of some kind. I’ve saw write ups about it in other RV blogs. Very sorry you had that happen. May you have safe travels and no more blog problems

  100. Toni CT-NH says:

    Thank goodness that’s over!! I actually thought there was something wrong with my internet connections. I’m usually on a wifi hotspot and am in Connecticut right now so I’m glad that it’s all ok.

    I guess we all went into a panic. I think most of us know that you wouldn’t just abandon the blog which caused the worry. No way to reach you to see if you even knew what was happening. I happened to ask someone on facebook and they also belong to the casita forum and passed along information about the tech issues.

    Glad you got it all worked out!!

  101. Gingerita in NE Indiana ( for now) says:

    Yay! You are back!! Awesome post Bridget!!

  102. Sandy in TX says:

    Whew! Another catastrophe avoided. You may never know how much you are loved until you disappear from the world of blog! Welcome back to the world of the web-living. I missed you.

  103. pjreads says:

    Bridget, I was kind of shocked at my emotional reaction to the possibility of your blog ending (and it is so generous of you to let RV Sue share it.) I felt the same way when Downton Abbey ended, and it dawned on me that I look forward to new blog entries the way I anticipated my weekly Downton fix. Your blog is so much more entertaining than most TV shows, no wonder you have such a following. Anyway, I’m excited to follow your travels in Colorado since it is one of my favorite states and we’re going to Estes Park and Marble in August. If you go to Marble, be sure to take RV Sue to Slow Groovin BBQ, it is delicious. She could share some of the smoked chicken with you and Reggie. Bye for now, tell RV Sue she has our sympathies on her internet trials.

    • retiredcajunlady says:

      PJ, I feel your Downton pain! I am not much of a TV watcher, but I did very much enjoy DA. And now I will crave BBQ! Take care and be well. Hope

  104. marg-tn says:

    I knew that I love reading this blog,but didn’t realize that I had an addiction until it went down. I must have checked 20 or more times……..only to get that annoying message……………anyway ……………..
    WELCOME BACK………….I SURE DID MISS YOU 3

    • Linda from Oregon says:

      Hi, my name is Linda and I can’t go two days without an RVSue and crew post. I admit I have a problem.

      We all feel your pain Marg-tn. I must have checked at least a dozen times then resorted to asking a friend if they could get hold of Sue. It took her being gone for several days with no news that proved to all of us that we have an addiction.

  105. Carolyn H says:

    I am a lurker. I raely make a comment. I was so disappointed when the log in screen came up, but I persevered and thank goodness you are back!!!! I really enjoy your blog. Found it when you were written about in the Phoenix newspaper for returning Rusty’s (?) dog.

  106. Patsy (nothern ontario) says:

    oh so good to have you guys back, every time i would try to go on it would say username and password and i thought oh know what happen.. really missed reading the blog and seeing how everyone is doing, miss seeing the crew and hearing the adventures and the other bloggers. Well first camping trip with hybrid trailer in three weeks yah.. can’t wait.. count down 🙂 thank you for coming back to us. love the pics, the stories, the lessons, the information from everyone. i love how you post what people bought on amazon, i check them out all the time and gotten some good ideas for me and my crew. take care

  107. DeAnne in TN says:

    Hi, I’m Melvin–I own my mom DeAnne. Mom weathered the withdrawal of no RVSue blog pretty well, because she knew things would be peachy keen soon. In fact, as I use my puppy thumbs to type this, the power clicked off here at home! Sue, mom just wanted me to say one thing; I don’t get it, but she says you’ll understand. She said “Yay! Aspens!” She’s a nut; hope you understand her!

  108. Missy says:

    Dear Sue and Crew, I actually had my daughter make sure I hadn’t messed up and disconnected from your site. So happy you are back!!
    Kindest regards,missy from the bayou

  109. Julia in Chatsworth says:

    Hi Sue and Blogorinos.
    Sorry I did not notice the latest infractions. I love the articles and photos but rarely do I have time to write in.
    BUT, We have exciting NEWS!
    We went to Big Easy,,, New Orleans… and bought us a very good condition 1954 27′ Spartan Manor!!!!!!!! Google it! Yes its shiny and has wood interior!
    After coming out here to Los Angeles we are going to set it up for friends and family, mainly my Mom, on our 1 acre, where the house will be just below it.

    Has anyone ever heard of or used a LAVEO DRY FLUSH toilet???? They sound very cool, and not hard to use, possibly pricey in the long term, though.

    Happy Summertime:)

    thanks!
    Julia

  110. Dawn in MI says:

    Hey Bridget! I wasn’t worried, I knew RVSue would be taking care of things and you two as well. Glad it all worked out. Now you all need to take a nap!

    • Hi Dawn,, Rusty here,,, if you look above, way up in the middle, you’ll see my new email address, I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab E and a Droid Turbo 2 so now I can multi task, talk, text and be here, love the new stuff,,,, have a great weekend, , Piper says hi too! ,,,,, rusty

  111. Sandi Stewart says:

    OMG I searched in vain for you. I am so glad you’re BACK in business. It would be a terrible blow to ALL of your loyal followers if we lost you. I can’t tell you how I was thinking back on things I have written over the weeks hoping I did not say something stupid (which is why it was requiring a user I’d and password). So relieved this was not the case and all is well. We luv you too. Stay safe.

  112. rvsueandcrew says:

    Hi, again!

    I was going to say how much fun it is reading your comments today, but it isn’t really. I mean, the kind words flow over me like a heavenly spa treatment. That part is great. Love to hear people are addicted to my blog. 🙂

    I do feel bad about the confusion, trouble, anxiety, and withdrawal symptoms! I am so sorry about that. Those of you who were searching for something you might have said that caused me to block you — That would never happen. If I block someone, which I very rarely do, it’s pretty darn obvious why!

    Welcome to new readers! I hope I haven’t missed welcoming anyone new. If I did, it wasn’t intentional. I’m a little punchy from computer stuff. Know that I am absolutely THRILLED with every new reader and every new blogorino…. Yes, it’s true, even after all these years, I’m amazed that people want to read about me schlepping around with two dogs.

    Kind of hot on the ridge today. In an hour or so it will cool down in time for The Early Evening Walk. Hope you are well, happy, and comfortable wherever you are.

    Sue

    • I actually panicked when I couldn’t open your e-mail I received. I tried the password and it wouldn’t work. Even though I don’t write often believe me I never miss a blog. I have saved everyone of them since I have been reading your blogs because I plan on going to all the places you went to.. So glad to have you back. Sharon from Florida

    • retiredcajunlady says:

      It must be so heartwarming to know how many people enjoy your blog for its beautiful pictures and delightful commentary! I truly hope you rest well for a few days as heaven knows you have earned it. Whereas I didn’t panic (as I knew it was an awful glitch), I did worry about the trouble you would have to go to to get your blog up and running again. It really is good of you to share your adventures with us. It is inspires us all to be more courageous (well, at least it does me) and to take time to notice the beauty around us each day. Sleep well tonight and know that many people appreciate you! Belly rubs and hugs for pups….and prayers for all!

  113. Applegirl NY says:

    Well, I can’t improve on what others have already said. Just add me to the pile.

    Bridget – what a wonderful post. Thank you for letting our Sue have a bit of well deserved time to decompress.

    I did want to add that I am very grateful for the Casita forum. It really put my mind at ease to know that others were having the same problem, and it was wonderful, Sue to see a post from you there.

  114. Marieta says:

    We are so glad that all of you are fine. You no doubt had an attack from moonbeams. They can mess up a computer in a second. Love it when Bridget and/or Reggie do the blog. Super intelligent dogs!

    • DeAnne in TN says:

      …moonbeams…made me giggle! I’m going to use that as an excuse when I have my moments of forgetfulness…

  115. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    Hi Bridget! So glad y’all are back. I figured it was a tech issue since none of the few passwords I use would work. I wouldn’t mind having to log in if that’s what it takes. Anyway, as I said glad you’re back. Though if this keeps happening I might actually get caught up in your archives. ?

  116. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    Oh Bridge can’t wait to hear about your campground. ?

  117. Pamelab in Houston says:

    Hi, Sue and crew –
    I missed you in your absence – and just look at all the comments from your readers! So pleased you and the pups are back. Take a deep breath. You are back after meeting just another one of those challenges that life throws at us from time to time.
    Happy Travels and looking forward to many more of your posts – with all kinds of good and useful information and funny stories and pups and great photos of all your surroundings.
    Pamelab in Houston…for now.

  118. Jan says:

    I missed reading blog. I seldom comment but wanted you to know what a great blog you have.

  119. Susan in Dallas says:

    Dear Bridget,
    Thank you for your wonderful post. Your sparkling personality always shines through in your writing! I know you and The Reginator were very distressed when RVSue was in a tizzy. Glad all of you have recovered from the down side of technology. As a former computer teacher, one of my favorite sayings was “Ah, technology, it’s great when it works.” I said that a lot and probably uttered some of the bad words RVSue did during this dreadful time.

    Just got back from a few days camping with intermittent internet access – was concerned about you all when I saw the pop-up asking for log-in etc. but couldn’t do anything other than hope you were OK. So glad to see this post when we got home. I could imagine the ‘disturbance in the force’ from all the blogorinos wondering what had happened!!
    Hope you have a quiet, happy weekend.

    Ohhhsoogladyourback!

    I don’t comment often but I check in every day! Dreaming of the time when I go fulltime too!

  122. Janet says:

    It’s so nice to hear from you again. Life is good now.

  123. Elaine in Colorado says:

    Oh Bridget you type very well ….. it’s a good thing that you use your paws for more than walking and riding in your car!

    Love the pictures!

  124. Aerolite Steve says:

    When I went to looked at your blog yesterday and saw that mess I pretty much knew what was going on and fully expected to see you back. SO glad you are back. My days just wouldn’t be the same without reading about your latest adventures.

  125. Laura R says:

    So happy to see you are back, I was worried something bad had happened.

  126. Joe says:

    What a relief you are back. I love your blog because you share your Western travels as an accomplished author. Always well written, witty, and heartfelt, you feed my need to live out West again. I lived a combined 13 years between Phoenix, AZ and St George, UT.

  127. Shelley in California says:

    I knew immediately it wasn’t something you did on purpose and there was a glitch with the blog. I know you would never do that on purpose especially without an explanation.

  128. Deena in Peoria, AZ says:

    Just ordered Miss Mollie’s Pet Stroller and I went through your blog entry portal. 1st thing I’ve ever ordered on the web. Have a wonderful weekend Sue and Crew.

    Deena and Miss Mollie

    • Rover Ronda (WA) says:

      Way to go Deena. I remember shopping online the first time was a bit unnerving. I’m sure Miss Mollie? will enjoy her new wheels

  129. KelleyinSoCal says:

    Thanks Bridge! I was so worried about you, Sue, and Reggie. Glad to know you are all okay!

  130. MelindaK (TX) says:

    Your blog is like a good book we can’t put down. Reality makes us have to close the computer, laptop, or iPad to wait for the next chapter/adventure. I think we were all stressed when we thought “oh no we lost RV Sue and her canine crew”, but we took a deep breath and realize RV Sue would never just vanish without an explanation. Then the light bulb goes off and I realize it must be a technical issue. Whew, was I glad to see your post. Your in an area that I love to visit, but have never boondock. I can’t wait to see what you discover.

    If you head East on hwy 160 before you start Wolf Creek Pass on the left is West Fork Campground. West Fork creek is beautiful.

    Enjoy God’s country!

  131. BoxinTheCompass says:

    Simply lovely…

    I must admit though…. I have a major crush on Bridget… she reminds me of my Cleo so much….

  132. Nancy from South Georgia says:

    Miss Bridget,

    You are so pretty and have such a way with words. You tell your Mama and Reggie I said hello, and I am SO glad you are all well. We missed you!

    Nancy

    I missed the kerfuffle! I placed an Amazon order on June 14. Does this internet snafu mean that some robot is wearing my new underwear and your commission went into cyberspace?

  134. Jan Johnson says:

    Bridget, you are a beauty! You need to do a beauty pageant – I’m sure you would win! Glad to see you back up and running!

  135. Jo in OR says:

    Bridgeegirl you are beautiful when you smile. Love your pictures in the last couple of posts. You have trained The Regg very well. Enjoy your weekend with Sue and Reggman. Stay safe.

  136. Elizabeth Mahurin says:

    Whew! That was close! Glad we are all still together:)

  137. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    I agree with Elizabeth M “Glad we are all still together.” I’m glad I wasn’t worried like all y’all but now to think we could have been separated. Yikes! I’m new to the group and still would miss you very much. Sue you have developed a unique community and you’re not just the mayor. You’re friend, counselor, guide, humorist, artist…You enrich our lives. Thank you

  138. MB from VA says:

    Oh thank God! It is crazy how attached I am to folks I have never met. 🙂 I never thought it was your doing. In this as in the rest of my life….I tend to think it was something I did….or in this case, my computer. At any rate, I am so happy that you three (plus blogorinos) are back. Have a great day all!

  139. Glenda in OZ! says:

    Oh thank goodness…………..all is ok. I was bereft the other day to check in and find out I was shut out, needing some ID and Password to view your blog. So many sad thoughts ran through my mind……….am I never going to see Sue and the crew again, not follow their adventures, see a part of the world I will never get to see…….check in on Bridget and Reggie…….never again??? I couldn’t not work out what was wrong….had I done something wrong to be shut out ?? indefinitely? So I checked in today with the hope that all would be right again and it was………….phew!!! I am happy again…………smiling!

  140. Ken wink says:

    Glad RVSue is getting better. Good job, Brigette. We’re currently heading west from DC area to home Seattle. Will swing into Yellowstone for a spell. On this cross country trip, we found Walmart to be our best frnd.
    You’re an inspiration, Sue.

  141. Ken wink says:

    Oops, my apologies Bridget. I misspelled ur name earlier. My bad.

  142. Eileen Dykeman says:

    Thanks for the news, Bridget. I love the pics of your beautiful face (and, of course, the pic of Reggie too!).

  143. Kay from KC, MO! says:

    To the Divine Miss B! You are a great Blogger and I always enjoy your perspective on things. I’m glad things are going well with you and Reggie. You are a great role model for him. I, like everyone else, was a little concerned about where you all went! I love to see the pictures of your travels and also read all the blogorino’s comments! Keep posting!

    Kay from KC!

  144. Scott says:

    It’s Ok…
    I did NOT give up on you !! Scotty

  145. edlfrey says:

    Sue,

    This has nothing to do with Bridget and her posting, as well done as it was.

    It has to do with the weather. I know that you keep an eye, your weather eye, on what is happening where you are are and where you are thinking about being. I found a ‘new to me’ site that you might like at ‘Plymouth State Weather Center – Plymouth State University’. I could give you the link but it is easily found using a search. If you have not been to their site before take a look there is a LOT of good weather information available.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Ed…. I’ll take a look at that site, sounds interesting. I’m about to publish the next post.

  146. Doris from Pennsyvania says:

    Glad you’re back. Thanks, to shout outs from the Bayfield Bunch I wasn’t to worried.

  147. AZ Jim says:

    Woke up this morning knowing my several times a day stomping ground was back and the world is ok again. It is projected to be 115 here in my desert home. But I have 4 tons of AC that keeps Detta and me at at a wonderful 78 degrees. It sure is nice to see the gang all together again. I had one advantage over many of you, I knew it wasn’t anything any of us did to cause our lockout. PS For future reference should this happen again, Sue would never just shut down or block any of us without us knowing what the reason was. Anyhow the nightmare is over and we are home again, good on us!!!

  148. COgal says:

    First time post from a long time lurker. So nice to have you back, thanks Bridge for the nice update.
    Stay cool this coming week, supposed to be HOT all over Colorado and the west.
    We are driving our new to us TT home from northern NM to western CO. First time ever for us. LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and especially the last couple of weeks as we will be trying our hand at trailer camping starting @ Aug. and you have given us some very good information and ideas of where we might try.

  149. Gail HoustonTx says:

    Thanks, Your Highness Bridge, for letting me know what happened to my favorite RV blog. So glad I can access you all again and know you are all okay. Nothing but the best wishes for you, Sue, and Reggie to have the happiest and safest travels always. Your worthy subject (who doesn’t post comments except under exceptional circumstances), Gail/HoustonTx

  150. Chuck Hajek says:

    W O W ! What great pics of Ms B and Reggie! The opening pic of Ms B is one of her best! Your travel pix of the last few posts have me really missing the the mountains and the west….. be safe and have fun you three!

  151. Beverly says:

    Phewwww, I thought someone had hijacked my computer when I got that log in box. Glad you and the crew are back and looking good I might add.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You got a log-in box? I thought my effort to install it had failed! Thank you, Beverly, for the feedback. I thought I’d have another day of more tech stuff!

      Is everyone seeing a log-in box now? Feedback please… It would be very helpful. Did you register first?

  152. Krystina ~ Sutton, Vermont says:

    I got the log in box too.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I hope you clicked the “Remember Me” box so you don’t have to enter the info again.

  153. Krystina ~ Sutton, Vermont says:

    yep I did 🙂

  154. Andrea E says:

    I was worried about you. Thought maybe you were stalked or something and you shut down the blog. Glad you’re ok!

    Lurker,

    Andrea
