Then for supper, she made some chicken and broccoli pizza.

While Ruth was doing all that baking and cooking, I began doing some exterior cleanup. Sherman is filthy! So I got out the ladder and started giving him a bath. And, I inspected the roof caulking and found some areas that need some attention. Fortunately, it is unlikely that we will get any more rain so I can do that when I get around to it. Some of the caulking needs to be completely removed and redone.
Ruth spotted this Vermillion Flycatcher. They usually don't sit still long enough to get a photo!
We hosted happy hour at our place yesterday afternoon.
We got to talking about their RV's and at least one reader commented yesterday about Whit and Jan's RV so we thought we'd show you some more pics. Both other couples are moving on this morning, so it's just be us and Sal until someone else shows up.
Whit and Jan's rig is on a 2001 Dodge 2500 series 4x4 chassis.
He bought it just as a cab and chassis and built the RV living quarters himself! Took him about six months, and then they hit the road in 2002. This rig has been all the way from Alaska to Panama and a lot of places in between. They travel with two dobermans, Max and Sassy!

How's this for a heavy duty front bumper?!
Then I went over and had a look at Tom and Sharon's van. Set up for a totally different kind of adventure, their 2005 Chevy Astrovan is going to South America with them. Again, built by themselves, this used to be a regular panel van and they kitted it out for camping.

Sleeping and living quarters.
The kitchen area is in the back, and they also have a tent that fits over all of this.
We like seeing what other rigs that people travel in. We've met people camping Mexico in anything from a tent and car to a 40 foot diesel bus and everything in between. What we've learned is that there is no right or wrong vehicle, it's just that each one has it's own limitations and benefits and drawbacks.
