Exercising

Day 6

Keeping In Shape


8am - Yesterday, my Blog to you mentioned that there may be no more 24 Hour Fitness Clubs until we reach the San Francisco Bay area. And north from there, appears to be no better! What to do?

Maybe "Dynamic Tension" would work for me? I Googled "Exercise without weights" and came up with lots of suggestions.

It is said, "How a person responds to a challenge is more important than the challenge itself." [Am I patting myself on my back? Maybe so! ๐Ÿ˜œ]

9am - Nite Camp
We are still at our Nite Camp site. It is taking a bit longer this morning to do stuff. It's a "Slow Data" thing.

It took about 20 minutes to pay a bill to Kaiser. This would usually take only a few minutes!

Gotta love it!

10:10am - Morning stuff
As you may know, when we Nite Camp in a residential neighborhood as we did last nite, we arrive late [after 10pm], and leave early. We do this so our neighbors don't get nervous. Some do not like to see an unknown vehicle parked near their home.

This morning, after leaving our Nite Camp we made a Morning Camp in a KMart parking lot. Then George did his morning things [shave, brush teeth etc].

Then came Boid's stuff. We already had given Boid fresh seeds. Now we changed Boid's water. Gave him a 2" piece of Spray Millet. Changed paper towel at the bottom of the cage.

Next, George's breakfast. This morning, "Post-Honey Bunches of Oats with Crispy Almonds." Added 1/2 sliced banana.

12:50pm - San Ardo
We have just made an Afternoon Camp in the small Town of San Ardo. The Scampy RV Team is thinking about staying the nite in San Ardo!

When we went into the little [and only] grocery market here, everybody in the store was speaking Spanish. We love that!

We did not recognize the green veggies growing in the field?

PS: The Town of San Ardo appears to be a friendly place. Not necessary for the Scampy RV Team to use any of our special camping techniques here! 


2:50pm - Cleaning
Much of the inside of Scampy is white fiberglass. Very shiny! No matter how much the white fiberglass is cleaned, there are always dirty spots remaining.

So, George keeps cleaning. It's a never ending job. George says, "It makes me feel important!"

Gotta love it! ๐Ÿ˜

"No Country For Old Men"
This is a 2007 movie that contains violence, murder, insanity. But! It is directed, written and acted so well, that I love the movie!

A few days ago, the movie was downloaded from iTunes. We like downloaded movies much better than on DVDs. Hardly any room is needed for storage. Can be easily backed up. Our movies are stored on a 2-terrabyte standalone drive.

5pm - Moved
After one of the local residents knocked on Scampy's door asking if we were alright, we decided to move to a more "out-of-the-way" Nite Camp location.

We are in cattle country!

  1. Yes, Morgan Hill is probably closest to where you are today, but you will probably go through Santa Cruz, where there are gyms, too. East Bay is fine, Santa Rosa and Sacramento area are well-equipped, too. But a Gray Cook Exercise Band might be a good investment for you...a surprising number of good stretching/resitance moves can be done, and there are lots of YouTube videos showing how.

  2. Try the YMCA...most towns have them. When I traveled a lot for my job, I exercised at hotel or YMCA/YWCA. If no exercise equipment available, I walked up stairs and down several times or uphill & down to strengthen legs and get my heart rate working (exercise my heart muscle) and lungs. Leg lifts and holding on to furniture is also good exercise for arms, stomach, legs. Do the leg lifts while lying down. My sister's heart doctor recommended leg lifts to her so I do those too.

  3. By the way data. Many Apps work in the background. Turning off these apps will reduce your running out of Hi-Speed data.

    1. Hi Dale,

      Good suggestion! I've done that.

      It seems that as I come to the end of my Cricket billing cycle, my High Speed Data just sort of evaporates!


      As I Blogged to you yesterday:
      "We are just going to quit bothering ourselves with data speed stuff. What will be, will be!"

  4. Dynamic Tension---------remember Charles Atlas? That was his system, and it enabled people to kick ass after having sand kicked on them at the beach.
