Time for Change

RV Adventure Bound followers - I have to be about the worlds worst blogger. When I started this blog 7 or 8 years ago I did a pretty good job of keeping it up to date. I was still working full-time but managed to maintain a fairly regular schedule of blog entries. Since I have actually begun the adventure, I have done a terrible job keeping the postings fresh. I'm sorry. I just don't have the same motivation I did in the planning/dreaming stage. Partly because I was not on Facebook back then and I've found that I post there more often than here. Also I find that maybe I don't need the "whole world" to know what I'm up to. The vast majority of people I know and want to share my life with, are friends on Facebook and follow my adventures there.

I will keep this blog online for a yet undermined amount of time. Any of you who have been faithful followers of me here can send me a friend request on Facebook and if I recognize you from here I will accept it.    https://www.facebook.com/andy.duecker

I want to consider this so long for now........not necessarily goodbye for good.

Three Months

I can't believe it's been three months already. Made it through Memorial day weekend, and the Fourth of July Week. Very busy weekends but no major issues. Carrying on.

Cleaning up a site with the John Deere tractor/loader.

A grill I rescued from the junk pile.

Moving some dirt with the Ford Backhoe/Loader.

Doing pump-outs on a rainy day in July

Patching some holes.

My First two weeks

We've been busy getting ready for the campers to arrive for the season. Cleaning sites, hauling tables, fire rings, making repairs. It's been some hard work but I'm feeling good. Some soreness but I think I'll get used to it and definitely come out of this summer in better shape.


The Gator I sometimes use.

Me on the tractor. Cleaning up a site after the campers have left.

Picking up sticks. Never ending job.

Awe SH*T!

So......One of my jobs at the campground will be the unpleasant task of running the "Honey Wagon". For you non-campers, the Honey Wagon is the sewer sucker machine that is used to empty camper holding tanks at campgrounds that don't have onsite sewer hookups. Luckily, we take turns so I won't have to do it ALL the time. For when it is my turn I made this vest to wear to try and inject some humor into an otherwise not very funny but very necessary process.
Let the poop jokes begin.

Summer Work Camping Position 2017

It's official, I report for work at Tall Timbers Campground and Resort on April 15, 2017 for a 6 month work camping adventure. I will be working in the Grounds and Maintenance Department.

The park is located in Port Clinton Ohio just a mile or so from the shores of Lake Erie and World Class Walleye, Perch, and Smallmouth Bass fishing.

Can't think of a better place for me!

New Year, New Opportunities



Although we still have not been able to make the leap to full-timing, we will be visiting Arizona in this new year. We are flying out to catch the end of RTR, (Rubber Tramp Rendezvous) and of course the Big RV Show.
We will be renting a small Motorhome for the visit so we can "play full-timers". It just does not make sense time wise to pull our rig all the way from Indiana & back for just a 10 day stay. So, we'll be the ones (or one of several) of the rigs you see with the big "RENT ME" on the side.

Can't wait. Looking forward to connecting with lots of friends. Most of whom, we have never met.
