Three different ways to say, “I love our new home!”

Joy in a new camp!

P1120542-001Continuing the story of our arrival at Kenney Flats, the crew and I busy ourselves turning the campsite into home.

I set out the usual items.

P1120482The photo (above) shows Bridget and Reggie after their initial reaction to a new home!

P1120472

Reggie grabs his toy flea, Bite Me, and runs and runs and runs, kicking up dust!

P1120473“Go, Reggie, go!”

After a few rounds he drops Bite Me.  It’s Froggy’s turn for a run around the campsite!

P1120477Finally the Reginator wears down and takes a breather. 

Poor Bite Me collapses with exhaustion and relief!

P1120474I laugh as I take these photos.

Reggie’s joy is contagious! 

This last photo of the episode cracks me up!  Reggie coughs from all the exertion.  Note the leg resting on Bite Me whose head is mashed into the ground.  No sympathy for a flea!

P1120478“It’s the altitude, baby.  Come here and have a drink.”  (Second photo at top)

Bridget is happy, too.  She just isn’t as exuberant about it.  That’s not her way.

It’s clear she likes her new home very much.

P1120462She wanders here and there, perky and alert, sniffing and inspecting.  Little brother tags along.

P1120457

Then Reggie makes an exciting discovery!

“What did you find, Reg?  Oh my!  That’s a really big bone!”

P1120456-001

He proudly drags the bone next to our sitting area and attempts to gnaw on it.  He soon gives up though.  Too much of a good thing, I guess.

The initial, excited activity subsides into peaceful enjoyment.

Camp is all set up and we’ve had our lunch.  Bridget and Reggie make themselves comfortable in their doggie beds. I relax in the lounger, listening to the birds and watching the yellow wildflowers flutter and wave in response to the breeze.

Gratitude fills my heart.

Later I sling my camera strap over my head and call the crew into action.

“C’mon!  Let’s take our walk early today.  I’m curious to see more of this place.”

Off we go!

P1120528We walk past colorful meadows and through cool forest.

P1120549-001So many different plants and flowers!  It’s going to be fun here, taking photos.

P1120467

 I hope we see wildlife, too.  (We do! The deer in the previous post and other animals, too!)

P1120540

Our walk takes us where I can see a wide area surrounding our camp.

“Oh, it IS a pond!  I want to get a closer look for a photo.”

The three of us make our way through the pines. 

Reggie dashes ahead.  Bridget picks her way daintily across the pine needles, stepping around pine cones.  I bend down and pet her.

“You’re such a sweet girl.  You love it here, too.”

P1120545

Pine forest opens up to grass and flowers again. 

Hmm . . . Wildlife trails lead to the pond. This is a popular place.

Although I cannot see the pond from the Best Little Trailer’s windows — it’s too low — I will be able to see any animals coming or going.

Gee, I love our new home.

  1. Linda from Oregon says:

    Glad you survived the 4th.

    • Linda from Oregon says:

      Am I first? Kathy says it’s a tie with me and kgdan since she is still here. Now to go back and savor the blog.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      YOU’RE FIRST, LINDA! HOORAY FOR YOU!

      Hi, Kathy! It’s up to Linda whether she wants to share this great honor. 🙂

      • Linda from Oregon says:

        I will share. Have your ears been burning? We have talked about when you first met and about when we both have traveled.

        You have such a great spot for camping. It was so noisy here last night. Glad you had peace and quiet. I know how Reggie is around that kind of noise.

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

    Such a perfect spot. I hope you can stay there for a while and enjoy it. 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Kristi & Daisie . . . SECOND PLACE TODAY!

      As I type this the crew and I are in our 6th day at Kenney Flats.

      • Kristi & Daisie (Nampa, ID) says:

        That’s wonderful. Sure wish I had such a quiet spot for Daisie over the 4th. It was rough on her with all the loud noises. Perhaps next year we can find a good camp spot and avoid all that for her.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I hope you do, Kristi. Previously I suggested that campgrounds with a camp host are a safe choice for noisy holidays. That’s usually true.

          Boondocks are riskier. We were fortunate that a parade of 4-wheelers or dirt bikes didn’t come to Kenney Flats, nor any practice shooters. It helped that the weekend was rainy. Poor Daisie… I know you will do your best to protect her from loud noises.

  3. Hi Sue, I am back, been in the hospital for a few days but now I am trying madly to get caught up. Did you miss me? I see I now have to do math to talk to you…wow was I gone that long…lol. Hi to the pups.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re back! Of course, we missed you! This morning I wondered if you were having peanut butter toast with your coffee.

      A few comments back you mentioned you would be getting “a pacer.” Did you mean for your heart? If so, I hope the surgery is behind you now. Selfishly, it isn’t the same when you’re not here! Take care of yourself, Shirlene….

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I ALMOST FORGOT! SHIRLENE’S IN THIRD PLACE TODAY!

      • No pacer needed, but had to have an ablation…feeling better now, trying to get ready for my big escape…in October. And yes I had peanut butter toast this morning, only with DECAF coffee! Lol…why bother huh.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          Good news about the pacer…. I’m glad you’re feeling better, Shirlene, but DECAF? Gee, what a bummer. Oh well, you still have your peanut butter with toast. Reminds me of a lyric…”They can’t take that away from me.” (What is that song?)

        • Dawn in NC says:

          Hi Shirlene. I’m glad your feeling better. My mother had to have several ablations, and they sometimes really set her back. Glad to see you back in blogorino land!

        • Cynthia in San Clemente says:

          Shirlene, glad you’re feeling better. What’s the big escape in October? I must have missed something in the comments – I don’t always have time to read them.

        • Mick'nTN says:

          I have cut back on caffeine over the years. It is easy to tailor your “kick” if you buy whole beans and grind your own. I am now on 5 scoops of decaf and 1 scoop of high test for four cups per day. 🙂

  4. Dave Stewart (in missouri for now) says:

    That last picture of Reggie is a winner just the look on his face!

  5. Jan Johnson says:

    Wow, I would never leave here! It is so beautiful and the best part is no other people! Reggie is so funny – what we need is a video of that running around with toys, but I can picture it having a similarly nutty pomeranian, except she prefers pinecones, the spikier the better. They hurt my hand when I pick them up – I don’t know how she chews on them and runs and catches them. Love that last photo of Reggie.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jan,

      Pomeranians are delightful dogs. I love how they can jump straight up like a pogo stick. I bet your girl is adorable.

      We don’t need videos. We have imagination to fill in the gaps between photos, right? 🙂

  6. Dawn from Camano Island says:

    What a lovely spot! Reg is such a funny guy & it’s wonderful to see a smile on Miss Bridget’s sweet face. Enjoy…

  7. Jean in Southaven, MS says:

    Great camp. I love it.

  8. Cactipete says:

    So beautiful and yes, Reggie’s exuberance is infectious! Makes me happy just looking at the photos.
    My house is on the market and I am currently updating/modifying my Class C for full-timing. Exciting times.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Nanette,

      Good for you to be moving forward after losing your husband earlier this year. I’m glad Reggie’s photos brought his happiness to you. Yes, exciting times for you!

      Although it was nice for me to order the Best Little Trailer new from the factory, I missed the creative fun of fixing up an RV for the full-time life. Your rig will mean a lot to you through the coming years. Good luck with the sale of the house. When the time is right, it’ll happen.

  9. ValGal (westernWA) says:

    What a gorgeous, peaceful place! Makes me want to go there! Reggie’s zooming made me laugh. Looks like Bite Me got a dust bath!

    Looking forward to the wildlife report!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good morning, ValGal,

      Bite Me is a filthy mess. I patched him up which delighted Reggie beyond measure. Now I need to give the dirty flea a bath. I should bring Sock Monkey back to life, too. Reg loves Sock Monkey, even without any stuffing.

  10. Dawn in NC says:

    Hi Sue! What a treat to open up my email on the start of a new work week and see your new posting. I had a good 4th. My cats didn’t seem to be too bothered by fireworks, so I was grateful. I went to an outdoor festival on Monday. It was a nice festival, but it had been raining hard and alot before. So, the entire grounds were one big mud pit. One of the cutest sites was of a dad with a toddler. The toddler was wearing rainboots, standing knee deep in a mud puddle having the time of her life. The dad was filming it. 😉 I’m so happy that you found such an idyllic spot and could share it and the pups joy with us.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      The toddler-in-the-mud-puddle… What a precious moment. Good thing her father was filming it. She’ll see the video several times throughout her life and her parents will cherish it.

      I’m glad you had an enjoyable holiday, Dawn. Sounds like you’ve returned to work refreshed and ready to read more RVSue and her canine crew posts! 🙂
      Have an enjoyable week…

  11. VictoriaEP says:

    Looks like a very nice campsite, and it’s obvious that everyone is enjoying it! Last time I posted I mentioned that I was going to drive over Wolf Creek Pass on Highway 160. Well, I did and it was a breeze – much easier than a lot of other passes I’ve driven. I can’t say how Bridget would handle the elevation, but you’re at the highest elevations for just a few minutes. The steepest part of the climb and descent is at the summit, so you’re over it quickly. There are a lot of places to pull over on both sides of the summit, so you can easily stop if you feel your engine or brakes (or you!) need a rest.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks for the report, VictoriaEP. Very helpful for anyone considering that route. The crew and I may go over it one day. I’m glad you found it easy.

  12. What a fabulous boondock. I am aching with jealousy! Can’t wait to hit the road.

    How do you store and organize all your Benchmark atlases? Have you found something to keep them in?

    • Also, what kind of tie-out cable do you use for Reggie? I need one, and am confused by the variety.

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Reggie’s cable comes from the dog aisle at Wal-Mart. I don’t remember the brand. The cables come in different colors according to the weight that’s advised for them to handle.

        At first Reggie had a red cable which was heavier than necessary (because a lighter one wasn’t in stock). The yellow cables he has now are the right ones for his 9 lbs.

        He has two 25-footers. I use one cable (or tether as I call it) when we go for walks. When a camp has few obstacles on which he can become tangled, I put the two together so he has 100 feet of diameter to run and roam on.

        I notice that the cables need to be replaced periodically because the vinyl covering becomes brittle over time and causes kinks and knots to form easily.

        I find the handle next to the BLT’s door is a good place to hook one end. When Reggie comes inside, I unhook the other end and place it through that handle. Then it’s easy and safest to hook him up before placing him outside again.

        • All very smart. Two 25-foot cables makes a lot of sense. And while I’ve been trying to find the anchor stake we have in the garage [buried under who knows what, it seems!], there are handy places to tie leads on our T@B, too. We also sometimes tie the lead to the leg of the picnic table, if there is one.

          Again, thank you so much for sharing all of your valuable information!

          • rvsueandcrew says:

            You’re welcome, kisstab-chick. I had one of those anchors and never used it. Besides the handle by the door, I use the back bumper of the BLT, my lounger, a table leg, or trees.

        • Kat says:

          That is exactly how I hook my pom Cookie Dog to our camper. The handle works wonderfully and I don’t need to bend way down to hook him or unhook him. He is getting excited as I have a pile of items I am collecting for our camping trip in a few weeks (he knows a trip is coming by how big that pile gets). Can’t wait to travel a lot, he is going to enjoy it so very much. Glad you decided not to do the high Pass as I was worried about Bridget’s breathing. Don’t think I would dare give my tiny pom a puff of oxygen from a can, he is elderly and has some typical old age issues. Love your posts! Hope Reggie and Bridge enjoy the your present campsite!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Remember when the BLT had a make-over and I installed three big units of drawers along one side? Well, one of those drawers holds all my Benchmarks and other maps. So handy. I just reach across, pull open the drawer, and there they are!

      Even the former storage drawers I had (the white Sterlite plastic drawers that Wal-Mart sells)…. One of them was wide enough to accommodate the Benchmarks, too, although not as nicely as these new drawers.

      • Perfect storage solutions. Thanks!

      • I hate to keep asking questions but we’re thinking about setting out in a couple of days to leave Dallas and find some cooler temperatures, which probably means New Mexico. I have my Benchmark Map. I have pulled up the National Forests and found the lists of campgrounds.

        Do I understand correctly that if we enter a National Forest and get maps, they actually have more campgrounds than the handful that are listed online?

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I’m not sure I understand your question. It’s hard for me to answer that as I haven’t surveyed all the National Forest websites and compared their lists with what is shown on my Benchmarks.

          The advantage of having campground symbols displayed on a map is you immediately see where the campgrounds are and what is nearby, as opposed to a list of links online that must be opened individually. Also the forest service doesn’t list BLM campgrounds.

          • I guess I was confused. I thought when you got to the headquarters and got the detailed map, campgrounds showed up that weren’t the Benchmark.

            Thank you!

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              “got to the headquarters and got the detailed map”… ?? What do you mean? The forest service maps? If you mean the Motor Vehicle Use Maps, they show the forest roads along which you camp. However, when you drive those roads you can’t camp anywhere. You have to find an established site.

              Forest service maps don’t show any more campgrounds than the Benchmarks do.

            • Forest Service maps don’t show more than Benchmark. Got it.

              I think I misremembered and confused getting a BLM map to find campsites that don’t show up on other maps, with the Forest Service campgrounds.

              Thank you for your patience!

  13. Happy fifth, or “the day after the world almost ended” as our dogs must think of it–they were not happy campers with the fireworks war outside last night. We did make a discovery that might help some other blogerinos with nervouse dogs: Thundershirts (I’ll let Sue put in the amazon link). We originally bought them for the thunderstorms, but when the festivities started we put them on the pups, and it definitely seemed to help.

    Beautiful site Sue, I’d stay there as long as I could!

  14. Marcia GB in MA says:

    What an attractive campsite this is! This place looks enchanted. It exudes wonderful energy and I can see the positive effect on Bridget and Reggie. He is such a funny little guy. They are both such loves <3 You're a lucky (and smart) woman.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Marcia. Yes, I am very fortunate. Not that I didn’t work for much of what I now enjoy, but it wasn’t my efforts alone that brought us to this stage of life.

      You’re right about the “wonderful energy.” Certain places have more of that than others.

      Our environment affects us, I think, more than we realize at times. It was obvious with Reggie. Boy, did the little guy run!

  15. judy in east texas says:

    Hi Sue and Crew….that little Reggie is just a darling thing. So much entertainment for all of us. I think he was a model in his past life, he can really strike a pose!
    Your camp spot is just beautiful and looks so peaceful.

    Stay safe out there and Rock On my friend, judy

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Judy… staying safe and rocking on… 🙂

      Bridget and Reggie both are photogenic. I’ve always preferred dogs with white on them and it does make it easier to obtain expressive photos for this blog. I agree, Reggie cuts a fine figure! As he matures, his personality becomes more apparent.

  16. retiredcajunlady 'n Louisiana says:

    Serenity. Beauty. Freedom. Blessed. Those words kept coming to mind as I read this post. I think I would be tempted to stay there for a long time. The pups look so happy and healthy. Your spirit must be lifted as you watch HRH B and Reggie-Man play in such beauty. And there seems to be an unlimited supply of pine cones for Bridget to gnaw on, and a wonderful environment to Reggie-Man to attack his toys with glee!! Have a glorious time in your secret garden in the forest!! Belly rubs and hugs for the pups and prayers for all.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, retiredcajunlady,

      I hope you are enjoying the afternoon…..

      I am wanting to stay here longer. It probably wasn’t wise to reveal our camp so early in our stay as it tempts people to drive out here. I’ll take it day by day. If the wonderful solitude continues, we will stay. At the first sign of it ending, we’ll leave. Doesn’t matter, either way. There are plenty of camps to be enjoyed!

      Thank you for the sweet message and prayers.

  17. Sheila Melcher says:

    What a beautiful place you have found and I will add it to my ever growing list of places to camp. The “kids” seem so happy here too and I can understand why. Stay well your three!

  18. Alice (So. Fla) says:

    Beautiful spot!! I’d stay forever. Thanks for the great pictures ! Reggie is a hoot and so thoughtful of you to pick a spot with pine cones for the little lady.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Alice,

      It’s better to stay long enough to really appreciate a camp, and leave soon enough to still want more of it. That’s what I try to do.

      I’m glad you like the photos…

  19. Wow Sue, that’s a great looking camp you have there and I’m chuckleing at Reggie’s photos of him and his toys and Bridges way, her way of checking out the details of the camp,, 🙂 ,,,, well we must leave this camp and get down to Prescott VAMC, Pronto, , my meds are giving me bad reactions and I have called them to let them know why and when I’ll be there in the early morning, ,, a good friend who is also a VA rep, will watch Piper for me while I am in seeing my Doctor ,,,,, have a great day and keep me, us in your prayers, ,,,,, Rusty n Piper

    • Cynthia in San Clemente says:

      I hope you get the problem with your meds solved quickly and easily Rusty, and that you feel better soon. In the meantime, will be praying for you.

    • Velda in Roseville CA says:

      As always in my prayers. Hugs to you and Piper.

    • BadgerRickInWis says:

      You’ve been in my prayers for awhile now Rusty but I will send special ones to both of you today. I hope the Docs are able to tweak your meds to minimize reactions. Take care my friend.

    • Dave Stewart (in missouri for now) says:

      You are in my prayers, I hope that the Dr.s get you treated quickly and effectively.

      • Barbara (Nashville) says:

        Saying extra prayers for you and Shirlene, Rusty. Give Piper a hug for us.

    • retiredcajunlady 'n Louisiana says:

      Well, bless your heart Rusty…meds have been giving you a bad time lately. I sure hope the doctors can find the right one for you and you get to feeling your best soon. Belly rubs for Piper and prayers for you both.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Prayers for healing for Shirlene and Rusty…

      • Hi all,, Thank you all for the prayers, ,,,,, I drove from Flagstaff area via Hey 17 to 69 cause 169 was having a control Burn and when we got up to Prescott Valley I turned to go find a camp close to the VAMC, but Restrictions on Forest turned us back, we are now camped off of Hey 89, 2 miles above Paulden, Az., and its been hot, but we have a good Breese coming from the south west, our camp can be seen from the highway,,,, We will be getting up real early in the morning, to get to the VAMC by 7:30 am to see what’s up with my system and hope we can get out before it gets hot and back up to the cool elevations, ,,,,,,, thank you all again, and I and Piper feel the Love from you all,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Rusty n Piper

    • Ron in Tx says:

      Rusty
      Check and see if you can get piper classed as a service dog. If you can she can go anywhere you go.
      Ron
      Welcome home bro

      • Not in the VAMC, anywhere, they just past the new law this passed Fall,,,,,,, thanks VA,,,, and thank so for your consideration Ron,,,,,,, 🙂

        • I tried doing that with “Timber” and paid $$$ and got ripped off by a lady who work or used to at Pet Smart in Prescott Valley and never got a Certificate, I told my Rep and they couldn’t find her, I think she was free lancing at the city park in old Town Prescott, ,,,, looked for her, but no prevail, ,, what people will do to rip us Veterans off,,,,,, no more and no thanks,,,,,,, your welcome Ron,, but I never left,,,,, the man upstairs kept me safe, even after I enlisted to serve 3 years and never even made it across the pond,,,,,, :-]

    • Chuck Hajek says:

      Hi Rusty, Hoping the VA gets yr meds right. Prayers for you. Chuck

  20. Kay Dattilio says:

    Good Afternoon,

    Your camp looks peaceful, pleasant and picture-perfect! I have a question from any experienced blogorinos…My 13 year old English Pointer is dribbling urine and as you can imagine, my house does not smell very good. Although she has other health issues she seems to have plenty of energy, eats good, sleeps a lot so not sure of having her cross the rainbow bridge is a good idea right now. I have tried diapers from Petsmart and they just won’t stay up and I tried 2 different sizes. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance! It’s very hot here in Kansas City so wish it would cool off a few degrees! Kay from KC MO!

    • Cynthia in San Clemente says:

      Kay,
      I had to use diapers for the last few months of my Wheaten Terrier’s life. Maybe you need to try a different brand or have someone show you how to put them on. I had to try two different sizes also, but was eventually able to get one brand/size that worked well. They do need to be “fastened” snugly, just as you would with baby diapers. You didn’t say whether you’ve taken her to the vet; maybe she just has a urinary tract infection that could be resolved with some meds?

      • My Poodle started leaking, got a cloth diaper that you put pads in it…helped a lot. But the biggest help was that she had a UTI and had to have her urine analyzed to get the proper antibiotic…She is soooo much better. Does not dribble any longer. Might want to check it out, she is probably miserable about that.

        • Kay Dattilio says:

          Shirlene, I did take her to our vet, but now UTI, everything is normal, just an aging female! I’ll probably dribble urine one of these days! Thank you!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Blogorino Alert! Any advice for Kay to help her dog?

      • Cinandjules (NY) says:

        Kay,
        As female dogs age, they have a tendency to leak urine. Is it mainly at night when she sleeps or all the time?

        My moms 16 year old papillon has this. She is on Proin which is prescribed by the vets according to her weight. No more pee or urine smelling house. The dosage was everyday for a couple of weeks….then the tapering begins…or you can give it to her daily.

        Bella has weaned off of it totally! But we know the solution if he problem comes up again. Best of luck.

        Ya know humans as they age tend to have the same problem!

        • Cinandjules (NY) says:

          Oops forgot the diaper problem!

          What works best is, a man’s pair of tidy whiteys! Put her tail thru the fly and cinch it up with a rubber band on the top side (back). Also you’ll spend an arm and and a– on dog products…get a bag of feminine pads at Wally World!

        • Kay Dattilio says:

          She’s on Proin but not working, but I will try the mens undies! Thank you!

          • Cinandjules (NY) says:

            Did your vet try tweaking the dosage?

            Sometime you have to start high say 2 X daily to get her “in check” and then back off. I’m certainly not a vet…but It took A WHILE to get Bella to where she is now!

            Natures miracle for the oopsies! And my sister is now the owner of a carpet shampoo machine…she no longer needs!

      • Piper used to have the same thing and I started picking up her water after athe the same time each night and it stopped happening, no more wet spots on the floor, ,, thanks to Cindy and Jules giving me the heads up on the matter, ,,,,,, 🙂

  21. RVDebs Journey says:

    Hello Sue and all 🙂 I just wanted to wish you all a Happy 4th!
    It’s been over a year since I moved into my RV. I’m in Lower Alabama and will be heading west very soon. I’m aiming for Oregon. My dogs are doing great and although I don’t post here I do read your blog.
    I have almost 2100 subscribers on my youtube channel which enjoy doing my daily vlog.

    This campground you are in looks perfect!
    hugs friends Rosie and Lily send doggie love to your babies

      Just subscribed to your YouTube site. Gotta check out some of your recipes.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Deb! I’m pleased to know you still visit here. I wish you continued success on the road and online!

  22. Cynthia in San Clemente says:

    This camp is so beautiful! I just love the action photos of Reggie; you really capture his exuberance and energy. And as usual, Her Highness appears very regal and composed in comparison 🙂

    Your comment about storing the Benchmark Atlases made me wonder … did you keep the three units of storage drawers that you installed during your reorg/remodel? I remember you had a problem with the drawers opening in transit and wondered if you were able to solve that issue?

    I am totally cracking up over the math problems required to post. Please promise me they won’t get progressively more difficult. I’m having angst that I may have to start reviewing algebra, trig, logarithms …

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Cynthia,

      Yes, I still have the three storage units. I love ’em! It would’ve been nice to secure them — and I may do that someday — but for now, it’s not a big deal to put the drawers on the floor as they slide back in easily.

      Ha! No, the math problems won’t become progressively more difficult. What you may discover is that they become easier for you. You know, practice will do that. 🙂

  23. Dawn in MI says:

    Your site look absolutely perfect. Our 4th was so noisy, and we were in a house! Poor Katie-girl (my sheltie) was miserable. Night before the 4th too. Hoping tonight everyone had to go to work and are too tired to blow more things up.

    I’m glad you’re in such a beautiful place! Love that little Reggie-man and Miss Bridget too.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Dawn,

      I bet the stress has worn out your Katie-girl. I hope she has a peaceful evening and sleeps well tonight.

      One’s fun is another’s misery. See it all the time in many forms.

      Thank you for your love for my crew. 🙂

  24. Linda in TX says:

    What a beautiful spot to spend a week! It looks so peaceful and calm. Can you take your chair down to the little pond for a sit?

    It is now so hot and humid in my part of Texas that I can’t spend time outside past about 11am…a sure avenue to the blues for me. I love Texas until July…

    Enjoy the rest of your stay.

    • Linda in TX says:

      Incidentally, I had a bit of trouble with the captcha. It would only let me type in two digits, so I had to try again until I came to a math problem that required only one digit. Just thought I’d give you a heads-up (if I can get this comment to post!).

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Sorry to hear that. I wonder if anyone else has that problem. I’ll see if I can learn anything about it at the CAPTCHA website. Thanks for letting me know, Linda.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Don’t let the heat and humidity get you down, Linda…. Easy for me to say, not so easy to do…

      I don’t want to take my chair down to the pond for several reasons. The grass is thick and high, the pond is not that pleasant close up (algae), it’s in a sunny spot with no shade, and, most importantly, our presence would interfere with wildlife coming for a drink.

      We’re cool in the shade and breeze under these pines. I do have to find a river or stream in which to set my camp chair and myself, some time before summer is over!

      • weather says:

        …and, most importantly, our presence would interfere with wildlife coming for a drink.” Brava, Sue, God bless you for letting them feel safe there. I know that you’re near the end of your data cycle with Verizon, but sometime you might enjoy watching a short video- When the Coyote Comes by Fernando Ortega.

        It’s about how perilous life can feel for critters , the ones in it fare well-I wouldn’t recommend something that had a sad ending. The song has a spiritual application ,so isn’t widely known. Your reply to Linda and similar instances we’ve discussed brought it to mind.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I’ll watch the video. Thank you, weather.

          The title of this post is human-centric. “Three different ways to say, “I love our new home!”

          Kenney Flats is not “our” home. It’s the home of many creatures who live according to nature’s design and not in conflict with it, as humans tend to do.

          The crew and I are uninvited guests. It follows that we should cause as little disruption as possible and be grateful for the privilege of residing here.

          • weather says:

            Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone thought of your last sentence when they occupy an area?

            It occurs to me that if you haven’t watched that video yet, you may not want to, it’s not a pocket full of smiles feel good sort of thing. It makes me grateful for the times I’ve been able to help animals, kind of an inspirational motivation to continue doing that.

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              I want to watch the video and I intend to. I see that the music of Ortego is available on Amazon, very reasonable. Like you noted, I’m close to the limit on my data usage (received that ominous message from Verizon a few days ago “You have used 90% of your data…”) 🙁

    • Chuck Hajek says:

      Hi Linda in TX! The Florida panhandle is the same! Stay cool. Chuck n Geri

  25. Belated happy Independence Day, you are the shining example of independence!

    Hahaaa Reggie cracks me up, I was chuckling at his antics and then that very last photo is hilarious! That tough guy look on his face after conquering poor Bite Me and Froggy! LOL

    Nice to see Bridget enjoying the new campsite too, and some pine cones she might enjoy. 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Another Linda in Texas… I hope you are keeping cool!

      Reggie’s tough guy look — Notice the ears pointed backwards, kind of like the way young boys wear their ball cap backwards. He’s one tough hombre…

      • Oh Sue, I noticed Linda’s comment above – the same thing happened to me with the captcha, my first one needed a two digit answer and it was rejecting it, so I asked for a new one that turned out to be one digit and it worked fine.

  26. Velda in Roseville CA says:

    This is interesting. On my old iPad one which I like because it’s slightly larger screen than this new iPad Pro 9.7, would not use the captcha. No matter how I typed in the number, it would not take it giving a message for me to retype. Decided to try the iPad Pro, and no problem , left a message for Rusty and it sent with ease. Conclusion, the captcha requires newer software than the old iPad can load. Boo. Well at least I know what the problem was and can use this new iPad even though it’s less balanced while reading in bed. Upward and onward. Glad you have a beautiful place to play Sue and crew. It sure was noisy here last night. In fact noisiest 4th in years. We are off to run errands. Have a nice week all.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Velda,

      Well, that’s not good news. I hate the thought of people with older devices not being able to enter here. I notice CAPTCHA has an update. Before I update, I’ll read to see if that’s a glitch that has been remedied in the newer version. I really hope so.

      Thanks for letting me know…

      • Cinandjules (NY) says:

        Dinosaur here!

        I have an old iPad (2nd generation)…no problem with captcha.

        Hah and I think my flip phone outlasted your taped together flip phone!

        • Velda in Roseville CA says:

          My old iPad is a version one! Ancient history electronics wise.

          • Velda in Roseville CA says:

            Sue it seems to have been fixed. After a couple of days including tuesday of it not working on the version one iPad, I just tried it and it now works!

  27. Linda-NC says:

    What a beautiful place. So peaceful. Reggie is just hilarious and the Queen is just cool and composed. I can almost see Bridget thinking “Oh Reggie, you are such a fool but entertaining none the less.” If dogs could write blogs too-Oh I forgot-they do:) -they would say that that is just a cool place! Enjoy that. When I get on the road I will have to look up that area. Keep it up Sue-the list is getting longer and I will be very busy. YAY!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Wow! Today is a day for Lindas!

      You’ve got Bridget figured out. She does look askance at Reggie when he cavorts around acting silly. Which is a lot of the time. Ha!

      I hope you enjoy the places on your list. I also hope you find many gorgeous camps on your own — It’s fun to do that!

      • Linda-NC says:

        Oh I intend to. I am a “Oh look” kind of girl. If it looks good check it out. I have found a lot of pretty places like that just driving around. Thanks.

  28. Rick & Brock the dog in WA says:

    Hi Sue!
    Wonderful campsite that you have there. Brock and I look for those all the time. We went up camping over the weekend. Very quiet which was nice. Glad you, Reggie and Bridget are enjoying yourselves. Blessings and travel safe!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good for you, finding a quiet camp for the holiday weekend. Blessings and safety to you and Brock!

  29. Judith camper says:

    Beautiful new home! Enjoy it to the fullest.
    Reggie and Bridget are the best.

  30. BadgerRickInWis says:

    Perfect camp, perfect neighbors, perfect companions. Well done!

    BTW, I thought you were done handing out math quizzes. 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Haha! One must keep one’s math skills sharp, young man. I’m trying to help here. 🙂

  31. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    What an absolutely gorgeous spot! It is so beautiful and relaxing, with lots of space for you and the crew. Reggie is so excited to run all over the place, committing abuse & torture to his toys. He is so rambunctious and Bridget is such a lady.

    Poor Angel was having a bad time yesterday. Thunder storms in the afternoon, then she just calms down and the fireworks started. My next door neighbors set them off in the street, but they didn’t have quite so many this year, thankfully.

    I broke down and got a smart phone, but I did order a case, screen protectors, a water bottle for Angel and a replacement handle for DH’s cane through your site. Hope you got the credit.
    I have been reading the blog, but with my extra work, I don’t have a lot of time to read all the comments, nor post one, but I am still here.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks for letting us know you’re still here, Barbara, and for the update. I’m sorry about Angel.

      I’m going to be a party pooper and say — enough with the personal fireworks! Every year a few young men lose a foot or a hand or their eyesight. Imagine being 20 years old playing with fireworks and then living the next 60 years or so with the result of severe, disabling, disfiguring injury. Nonsense! In this day and age there are plenty of entertainments with action and spectacular visual displays and loud noise… Personal fireworks are stupid. Out in the street playing with fireworks. . . . Dumb and inconsiderate!

      • Larry in AR says:

        I would agree that personal fireworks have gotten out of hand (no pun intended). When I was a kid (now, there’s a novel statement), fireworks were small firecrackers, sparklers, roman candles, small bottle rockets, etc. There were occasional minor injuries, but nothing like what is happening these days. And, we had a ball with the few that we could afford. These days, anything short of the atomic bomb is sold for just anyone to use and abuse. Oh, for the good old days.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          There’s a hillside and river valley near a campground in which we stayed in Montana that was burnt to the ground because of a foolish young “man” of 28 playing with fireworks in an area of dry vegetation. I saw the black skeleton of a family’s home. Nothing left. Everything burned. Stupidity!

  32. weather says:

    What a great idea to show how each of you expresses that you love a place, gosh, I so enjoyed this post! And apart from the primary story it has one of the nicest sweet photos and caption in quite some time. “She wanders…Little brother tags along”-how touching for Bridget and Reggie to behave and be described as siblings. As a new young one that needed to be taught so much his canine corner addressing her as Miss B fit and still may at times. It’s been a while now. He’s grown, they’ve grown together, the three of you have- like all real families should. I love that.

    You do each demonstrate differently that you’re feeling something special , in this case, about a place. You choose it as and make it home, for you and the crew, then walk through it early to admire all that it has. Reggie’s glee can’t be contained until he’s spent all of it that he can for a while. Bridget slowly takes it in, letting everything come to her or wait, instead of her rushing to it.

    How brilliant to make creation and creatures beautiful and unique and let them connect in ways that multiply that beauty. I agree with the last post’s idea that you were led there-seeing why is a rich delight, thanks.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You have the ability to enrich my posts to a deeper meaning, much more than anything I present in words or pictures. It’s as if my posts are a two-dimensional snapshot and your comments reveal the other dimensions easily missed and holding more meaning. Always a treat for me, you discover elements that I didn’t know were there! I thank you again.

      Bridget and Reggie need their last walk of the day. Reggie is lying on the floor, looking at me with pleading eyes, making little squeaky noises, in an attempt to look and sound pathetically miserable. He does this every day around this time. Oh, how he loves walks! Bridget takes some motivating. Once she’s up and out the door, she gets into the spirit. 🙂

      Bye for now…. I hope your vintage home-on-wheels project is progressing how you want it.

      • Larry in AR says:

        …Reggie is lying on the floor, looking at me with pleading eyes, making little squeaky noises, in an attempt to look and sound pathetically miserable… Boy, am I familiar with that routine! Sometimes I want to say, “Can’t you skip it just once? Here I am, all stretched out and relaxed. Let me rest in peace, can’t you?” Fat chance! But in the end, they are worth it.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          You know what, Larry? After I wrote that, I gave in to Reggie’s sad-sack pleas and went outside with him. A few minutes later I had to say, “Thank you, Reg, for pulling me away from the computer. If you hadn’t, I would’ve missed this.”

          🙂

  33. Looks like a beautiful campsite Sue. One I would love too. Seems to have everything on my list for a perfect campsite – wonderful trees, beautiful wildflowers, nice water, wildlife to watch and privacy. Really love the latter. I know you three will really enjoy yourselves here.

  34. Jolene/Iowa says:

    Sue, this is just lovely!! It looks so peaceful! I LOVE how happy Reggie and Bridget appear to be. I hope you enjoy your stay here!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Jolene. The three of us are living well and happy. We went into town today — Pagosa Springs is one big traffic jam that goes for miles, no kidding. It was such a pleasure to know we had this quiet, lovely place waiting for us.

  35. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    Love the pictures of the crew! Looks y’all are enjoying an awesome site!

  36. AZ Jim says:

    Dear Missy, Please give me your exact location as I am planning a dog napping of Reggie.
    I promise to be good to him, feed him what’s good for him interspersed with Rotisserie Chicken. I will provide many cloth toys for him to rip hell out of. I won’t allow any TV watching except the nature or travel channels. Please leave him outside on his tether. Thank you…Jim PS Keep on truckin missy….PS I barely passed the math test after 3 tries.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I love ya,’ Jim but you can’t have him! He’s become a big part of my life, as Bridget is, as Spikey was. I know you’d bring him up right and give him everything that’s good for him… I wish you and Detta could have a dog or become foster parents for rescues. I understand the tripping danger is real and is a deal-breaker.

      • AZ Jim says:

        You know to this day every time you are around water, I can see Spikey in my minds eye, laying in the shallows with that contented look in his eyes. He was a cutie…

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          Me, too. I silently say a few words to him and I see the photo I would take.

          • Rover Ronda (WA) says:

            They are always with us aren’t they. In my mind I have a rather large pack of dogs ??

  37. Love this camp. I Think Bridgett and Reggie agree

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      They certainly do, Judy. We had a few rainy days, nothing heavy, just intermittent drizzle. Then it turned sunny and clear again with comfortable daytime temps (a little hot in mid-afternoon) and perfect sleeping temps with the windows closed. 8,000 feet is a good elevation in this part of the state at this time of year, although some folks might prefer it cooler.

  38. Barb from Hoquiam! says:

    That silly Reggie! Glad you made it through the 4th with no mayhem. We were hosting bombs locally for 12 solid hours. I am spent, shot, fried, etc… Oh well… on to New Year right?
    I wanted to share that my hubs has had to order another phone (crack in the cover) so you will lose some $ for that… BUT! He remembered (!) to order again through your site! So it should even out. I didn’t even have to remind him!!! YAY! He is a good guy.

    Well, I am off to go hide some more.
    Hugs!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good heavens, 12 hours! I know that’s tough on you…

      I’m sorry the phone arrived cracked. Hooray for Hubs! Thank him for me for remembering my blog. I hope you have a pleasant and peaceful evening!

  39. katydid in Chicago says:

    I have been away on vacation and I am just now catching up on the last two weeks of posts. I love Reggie’s enthusiasm and Bridget’s quiet enjoyment of this campsite. Your photos certainly capture the peace and beauty of the area.

  40. AlanOutandAbout - Alpine AZ. says:

    What a beautiful place to camp and all to yourself. The pups are really enjoying their new home. It really is wonderful how Reggie has adapted to his new life. I don’t think he could be happier.
    I am still in Alpine, This is a very nice place, Temps in the 70’s and low 80’s, high 50’s at night. I’m thinking about making this my summer home. It is right in the middle of the areas I want to explore in the winter months. Scamper is doing fine but Cleo is in her element, I have never seen her so happy. The field joining the campground is ripe with moles, Cleo has caught 6 of them. Not bad for 16. The campground thru a pancake breakfast on the 2nd and the town had fireworks that night. They lasted 50 minuts and were very good. Not bad for a town of 150 population.
    Well take care and enjoy your wonderful life you deserve it.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Funny, I was just thinking about you today, Alan, wondering if you were still in Alpine and enjoying it. Sounds like you are! Sometimes the small towns are the most festive and the most fun. Gee, I could have used a hunter like Cleo back at my house in Georgia. The moles/voles/whatevers were a plague on my garden.

      Your weather is very nice, a little cooler than here. I should make my way over there one of these summers.

      I thought the same thing about the crew — They couldn’t be happier. Neither could I. I wish the same for you, Alan, and for Scamper and Cleo.

  41. Susan vlastelica says:

    Beautiful camp Sue! Love the flowers and trees.
    Thundershirt is a must for my Aussie! Loud thunder and fireworks send her over the edge. She was happy to get hers on before the fire works started.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Susan,

      I’ve read very positive reviews about the thundershirt. I’m glad your Aussie benefits from hers. You were kind to buy one for her.

  42. Jenny Waters says:

    Too cute! I love the dog pics.

  43. Jeannie WA says:

    Great pictures Sue. I can almost smell the Colorado forests we camped in when I was a kid.
    Lawmakers have outlawed certain fireworks (YAY!!!) in Vancouver, WA starting next year so people went a little crazy last night. Boomers were still going off about 2:30 this morning. Needless, my kittens snuggled up close.
    Enjoy your stay!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jeannie,

      Yay is right! Way to go, Vancouver! I hope other places follow…

      Keep those kittens close. 🙂

    Of course entry to the math teachers blog would be a math problem!

      Of course! Besides, I don’t like those wiggly words with numbers in them. Too hard to read.

      • Sunny says:

        Doing good, Sue! I stayed in PA all last winter, but I’ll be back out there this fall. I am not mechanically inclined so I sold my Class C Diesel and picking up a new one tomorrow, a plain Jane, Class A but I know how to make it homey. I am, so excited!! And I am back to blogging on “Changing Lanes”. I’ll be posting about it on there soon. Take care, Hopefully our paths will cross again 🙂

  47. Richard says:

    Had to see the math problem. Loved seeing Reggie being Reggie.

  48. Elizabeth in WA says:

    Ah so lovely…you may decide to stay awhile longer there eh?? I would think you would be having neighbors in such a lovely spot!!

    Today at a store we do not frequent a lot, I ran up to see this lady (and her blue heeler dogs of course!!)…those lovely dogs just got over to me as fast as could be and I enjoyed a nice long petting spell while talking to their mom. She said that they were rescues…someone dumped them in the desert…can you imagine that?? Such lovely creatures as they were…and they were way more friendly and calm than most blue heelers. I felt like I had had a nice little visit with our Ebony that we lost in 2010. LOVELY DAY for me!! Those funny dogs…so like our Ebony too…putting their face into every bag she loaded into their car, so curious…what a fun remembrance!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      What a lovely reminder of your sweet Ebony whom you continue to cherish, Elizabeth.

      I’m happy you met those two “messengers” who reminded you of the love you shared, and, I believe, continue to share. It’s remarkable how dogs can lift our spirits and make us laugh. 🙂

  49. Steve in GA says:

    Sue, I’m still catching up with past posts (up to September 2015 now)…kind of like watching Back To The Future…and I have to ask/nag: did you ever buy an axe or saw for cutting trees that fall across your boondock roads? It’s not a matter of “if”, but “when” 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Steve,

      The only saw I’ve purchased is a hacksaw I needed to cut the PVC pipe that is the pole for the antenna (so the pole would fit in the PTV better during transit).

      I want to buy one of the nice saws blogorinos recommended. Need to settle somewhere near a UPS Customer Center in order to receive one from Amazon. No, I haven’t forgotten. Seeing all the deadfall on the road beyond West Fork CG recently reminded me of that. I should just go to a store and buy a saw!

      Love that you’re reading the old posts…

      • I like to buy high quality items (usually ordering them) but I’m sure you could find one in Walmart. A saw would be a lot more efficient. I’ve been able to prune some pretty beefy limbs with a folding Corona saw I bought at HD. That way you wouldn’t have to wait around for delivery.
        Cheers.

      • Cinandjules (NY) says:

        Or a winch……work smarter not harder! ?

        Two fold…move fallen trees out of your way and be able to pull the PTV if she sinks in the dirt! Actually you’re slick at identifying loose dirt ahead of time!

        Bow saw it is!

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          The trouble with a winch — I’ve used them, moved a shed once — you need a strong, stationary object to operate it. In a forest there are trees, of course, but also not a clear area through which to move the tree. A saw makes more sense to me, compact storage, less bother.

          As for moving the PTV when stuck, most likely that would happen in the open ground of desert (like it did at Coyote Wells) where a winch is useless. Not being oppositional… That’s how I see it.

          So, yes! A saw!

  50. Janis says:

    Did you decide on what mountain road your going to take? You could go on YouTube and type in the road name and watch video that people post for that road to see what it’s like.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Janis,

      I couple posts ago I explained we will go to Chama and take Rte 17 through Cumbres Pass, followed by La Manga Pass. Yes, the dash cams are interesting. I don’t watch them often because I like to be surprised and delighted at my first view of an area as we pass through it. Plus I have to watch my data usage or I’m killed with overage charges. If I’m desperate for courage, I’ll look at it. 🙂

  51. Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

    Beautiful camp Sue. Bridget and Reggie sure are happy about it too. We just returned from mountain camping at 6800 feet. We had beautiful weather, almost too cool at times, but better than hot. We were at a forest service CG with well spaced sites. As nice as it is, we would’ve preferred to boondock, but chose a FS CG as we were expecting family to join us. Take care, and as always, I’m looking forward to your next camp.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Sometimes a campground is preferred to boondocking. Even an RV park serves a purpose, at times. I’m glad you have beautiful weather and enjoyed your mountain camping with family, Renee.

    • A gal in Maple Valley, WA says:

      Yeah! What she said. ^ ^ ^

      When was it? Did you have some chicken in hand?

      So thankful for the 3 to 4 days of rain before the fourth. Otherwise I would have spent the holiday on the roof and yard armed with the garden hose. Between rain showers, I’ve been using the outdoor black hose solar shower in the pop up cabana. So refreshing!

      Happy Wednesday!

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        The header photo was taken the day the crew and I went to Williams Lake Reservoir and shared a picnic of cold fried chicken. No, I didn’t have chicken in hand. 🙂 It was all gone by the time that shot what taken.

        Happy Wednesday to you, Maple Valley gal!

    Beautiful camp site…..I’m envious!

          • Penny in AR says:

            You’d have to be much better than the teacher I had! He explained it once, and if you didn’t get it, too bad. With my Dad’s help I squeaked by with a C. I thought the teacher should realize that it doesn’t come easy to everyone. Needless to say I didn’t take Algebra II, and didn’t go to college so no more exposure. LONG time ago!?

      Fantastic, Rusty! You handled that very well. Thanks for letting us know about your appointment. I’m sure you were very relieved to hear the doctor’s words, as I am to hear your infection is almost gone. You and Piper enjoy your camp!

    WOW! 198 comments so far! LOL ! Better late than never! I love your new home! The beautiful yellow flower carpet, the pines whispering in your ears,the wildlife, the QUIET! You have indeed found a jewel! Your photographs are wonderful! I am very glad you found a place where you could enjoy a peaceful July 4th.
    I will admit I didn’t read many of the comments, and I apologize because I usually read them all, but 198 comments is a bit mind boggling! Oh and by the way, I never had to find a place to click on to open comments or the new math question! I just had to keep scrolling down and there ready to read were all the comments!
    Love the photos of Reggie and his toys! He is such a character! You are right, whether it be your suggestion that Bridget likes her new home oe not, she really did seem to be “at home” there!
    I hope you get to spend more than a few days here, it really looks wonderful!
    ohhhhhhh now I see the math question! LOL thanks for making it easy!

    Hi Sue n Crew!
    Great pics of the crew! And what a beautiful campsite. Problem with the Florida Long Leaf Pine is that has little pine smell and I miss that. But in todays heat, it smells like a muggy jungle… but a quiet 4th. All the fireworks were over at St George Island. Doggies snoozed thru!!!
    No horses but a beautiful lot of pictures. Chuck
