Joy



My Joy In This New Life!

2am - It's a bit crazy for me to be up Blogging at this early hour. But wait until I Blog to you about the other stuff that I did. Then you'll know just how crazy it really is!

Remember in yesterday's Blog, the part where there was no room for Honda and Scampy to park at 24 Hour Fitness. And we wrote that our work-a-round plan was to return when there would be space in the 24 Hour Fitness parking lot.

Well, that's exactly what happened! We parked in the big Grossmont Mall parking lot [across from 24 Hour Fitness]. Little iPhone's alarm was set to 10pm. And I went to sleep. Little Boid was already sleeping in his cage on one side of my bed.

At 10pm the alarm woke me, and off we went over to 24 Hour Fitness. Sure enough, we found loads of parking. More than enough for Scampy and Honda!

Shower, shampoo, soak in spa
It may sound weird, but I got such a big kick out of doing the stuff that I did today!
  • Went to the 24 Hour Fitness on Grossmont Center Drive at 11am, only to find that there was no place to park
  • Driving to another nearby 24 Hour Fitness on University Avenue.
  • Learning that the 24 Hour Fitness on University Avenue has no shower, no hot water, no spa, no towels.
  • Decided to return to the Grossmont 24 Hour late at nite when there would be parking.
  • Returned to 24 Hour Grossmont at 10pm. Plenty of parking spaces for Honda and Scampy 
  • Took a hot shower. 
  • Shampooed my hair.
  • Soaked in the spa.
  • While in the spa, a guy started a conversation with me. He told how he was a druggy, down on his luck. Went broke. Went into rehab. Turned his life around when he became a born-again Christian. After that life changing event, he married, has five children, a great job [all in 10 years].
  • At 12:30am made a Nite Camp at John and Mimi's.
  • 2am - Was hungry, so made breakfast!
Preparing a great breakfast at 2am


My New Camping Style
I have not figured out all that is motivating me since beginning to camp with Scampy. It's something that I am figuring out day-by-day. The thing is, I'm adventuring now as I've never adventured before.

But it seems to be important to me to create a certain style for this new camping life I am in.


About this breakfast
3:30am - I could have gone to Denny's instead of making breakfast myself. However, this developing new camping style has me preparing my own food in Scampy's kitchen 

I have to go to sleep now! My brain is groggy. But for sure, I'll clue you in about what is going on with this style stuff when I figure it out myself!

PS: I usually proof read my Blog posts so that there are no errors. However, I am sooooo sleepy now. I didn't do my usual proofing. Please excuse me for that.

    Nothing quite like cooking at home, the way we love it.

      PS: Maybe you should re-read today's Blog. I just proofed it and made a ton of alterations.

  2. George, you seem to have a lot more energy when you are out camping.

    1. Hi N & J,

      I agree that I do have more energy now.

      And part of my get-up-and-go comes from Camping with Scampy.

  3. I think RVing keeps us young. We have to be alert, pay attention, figure things out, correct mistakes, learn new things, think outside the box, etc., etc., etc. I think I'm more physically fit, healthier and mentally brighter than I've ever been. I'll bet you feel the same. :)

    1. Hi Barbara,

      I agree completely with your comment.

      After beginning to RV again after a two year lapse, I am VERY surprised to find that I am able to do many physical things that I had lost the ability to do.

      For example, getting up from sitting on the ground. This was very difficult for me. Now I do it.

  4. Ditto on RVing keeping us young. My son figured I would die in a fiery crash before I got 200 miles down the freeway! Now he admits it agrees with me because I have lost weight and my blood pressure is down! A LOT better than spending the rest of my life in my recliner watching TV, although I confess to doing that in my motorhome also.

  5. Isn't it time to change your name to Scampy George?

    1. Hi RW,

      No! I do not believe that it is time to change.

      * My name is Tioga George.
      * My name will always be Tioga George.
      * Until the end of time.....

      Tioga George

      After thought: I understand that MsTioga is not a person, as I pretend her to be in my Blog posts. Nevertheless, I have an emotional attachment to MsTioga's memory. I cannot help it. Because, I love her memory.

  6. Changing your name is NOT a good idea! Tioga George is a famous person. Has reputation built over many years. I know! Maybe "Tioga George---the Scamp"????
