The Shortest Journey

Starts with filling the gas tank. OK, not exactly poetic, but an essential part of any journey if you drive an RV.

From the gas pumps, we moved along to the propane tank and had that topped off as well.

Since we (Rhonda and I) are heading for another 3-4 days of dry-camping (boondocking), I had to add dumping my black and gray tanks to the list of pre-journey chores.

I’m happy to announce the tank dumping procedure THIS TIME around was the normal 10-minute job. No fuss, no muss – thank goodness! 😉

With all this accomplished, it was still just shy of 1:00 pm. Being a tad early for arrival at my next destination, I pulled into the RV parking area of Fred Meyer in Soldotna, and headed inside.

A pair of leggings and several warm pairs of socks later, I was once again ready to hit the road. Heck, the socks alone should guarantee warm sunny days for the rest of my trip!

So, back to my “short journey”. It took me five minutes to make it back to the road to Centennial Park Campground. I passed by the entrance to the campground, went about a quarter of a mile further, and turned into the Soldotna Sports Center – the site of the 3-day AKC Scent Work Trial that starts tomorrow.

Ronni is looking forward to lots of sniffing fun! I’m looking forward to three days of scent work searches with Ronni and camping fun with friends. 🚎🚎🚎

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
