Lots Going On!!

Location: Avon Park, FL (High 81, Low 49)

It’s only been a couple days since my last blog, but we’ve been BUSY. On Friday, we finished what is probably our most exciting modification to date on our fifth wheel.


It took a little prep work on Harry’s part on Thursday afternoon as he had to climb into the basement and reroute the wiring that originally went from the satellite to the bedroom, down to the basement.

We love it!!




Yesterday Harry took advantage of the gorgeous weather to wash the fiver from top to bottom.








Harry was very happy to be able to wash off whatever remnants of salty air might have been left on the rig from our month in the keys.

Today we celebrated an exciting milestone – Harry’s birthday! We started it out with a great ten mile run. Ten miles is just about the distance that I was able to run a few weeks ago in Key West and I think my legs held up a little better today.



After that start, relaxing was in order for the rest of the day.




I tried out another one of my new recipes for Harry’s birthday meal…Southwestern Chicken with Spinach and Mashed Potatoes.

(I was going to include the recipe in this blog post, but I think it’s getting to be long enough, so I will feature the recipe in another blog post tomorrow.)


After dinner, we decided to head over to the tennis courts so we could get in another half hour of practice. Phew! I think we will sleep well tonight.


  1. Happy birthday, Harry!! You guys are having a good time there :)

  2. nice job on the modifications! and it looks like Harry had a very nice birthday!! congrats to him on another year!!
