Another Soggy Weekend and Moving Past Posts

Wow. I cannot believe this rain.  The dogs and I, along with everyone else, are getting pretty sick of it, but it could be worse.  We could be in Monroe, Louisiana. My prayers and sympathy go out to these people who have lost everything.

The good news is that our lakes are filling up, so that truly is a blessing, but boy, getting there has been rocky!  Dare I say it?  There’s actually some sunshine forecast for next week.  That definitely makes me smile.

Just a little perspective on how much rain we are getting. The photo below, on the left, was taken in September 2015.  The photo on the right (not mine) was taken last week, March 2016 of the same spot at Fowler Falls near McCloud.



Below is the Fowler Falls campground area. The photo on the right was taken last September looking DOWN. The one on the left (also not my photo) is on level ground, taken last week.  I think we can be thankful that the past two weeks have given us all this water in two to three day shots with some breaks in between, and snowpack in the lower mountains hasn’t been all that deep.


Nothing really exciting going on in the way of travel, but good weather and good times are just around the corner.  I have, between a few bouts of “I can’t take this (rain) anymore” been busy with a few things.  I needed a sleeping bag  liner (Oversized, to fit in the oversized sleeping bag. The Chiweenie Brothers do not like to be cold), something to put the dog’s tie out stakes in, and a cover for my Camco heater, so those projects were taken care of last week. Every little step, no matter how tiny  brings us even closer to our Big Adventure. No photo of the heater cover as I am not finished with it yet.

The bag liner. A queen sheet folded in half and sewn along the bottom and half way up the other side. 

Dog stake bag made from leg of an old pair of jeans. Sometimes you just need to pull up stakes and hit the road.  Fast.  No cleaning required. Just stuff and store. *Smile*


Besides these projects, I have been working on moving posts from and editing along the way.  A lot of those old posts don’t fit into our new life’s goal so they will not be brought to this site. I am still in the process of weeding out, so my apologies if something appears here, but then disappears.

Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel,  Shawna

A Rainy Weekend in Store

Hello, and thanks for stopping by 2 Dogs. The boys and I are settled in, warm and cozy, for not only a rainy weekend, but possibly a rainy MARCH.  Wow. We need the rain, but I have Spring Fever SOOO bad, and the pups are not going to like having to be inside for most of a month.  It will be time to pull out some brain games for dogs and keep them occupied.

I have, thanks to one of Word Press’s nice helpers, printed out directions for moving the old blog here, so over the next few days I will attempt that.  Smiling and blinking here … Hoping it works.  I have to say, I am so impressed with this gal.  She even went to Blogger and opened a new blog to find out how to do the move since the export blog feature was hidden from casual observation. How nice was that?!?!

Nothing new in the way of van stuff, although the new dash cover came in.  It won’t be installed until nicer weather, but I did want to post that I have three historical fiction books that I would like to send to one of you.  Just post a comment that you would like them, I’ll get your address from regular email to keep it private, and  will get them out in Monday’s mail. Someone else had the opportunity to get them but I never heard back when I queried her, so they are up for grabs again.

Time to try that import; wish me luck.  Remember, life begins at the edge of your comfort zone.

Until next time, Hugs, Shawna
