Older First-Timer

Hi!  My name is Helen and I'm 64 years old.  I created this blog as sort of a nudge to myself.  When I see that age 64, I think oh dear, I'm too old to start over, what am I thinking??  But I just don't feel it yet.  I'm feeling pretty good, no major medical problems, knock on wood! ouch!  :)


These are just my thoughts right now, but I feel I'm right on the edge of making a huge change in my life. It will take many baby steps, I know.  So I created this blog hoping for…

What it cost me to build my own camper & how long it took me

I built a small camper that measures 6' wide x 9' long and is 5' tall. Though I can't stand fully upright in it, I wanted a lower profile camper for fuel economy and to load my canoe uptop. I started with a next to new heavy duty utility trailer that I purchased locally from Craigslist for $300.00. The trailer is a 5' x 8' trailer. I built the floor and camper shell out of 3/4" plywood and used 2x3" cross members for the roof which I covered with luon before the Aluminum went on. I used…

Cook Forest part 2

The park chaplain came by this morning to invite us to Sunday service in the park and we got to talking about the Rangers that stopped last night and the Bus. The guy in the next site heard us and came over. He said I'm a lawyer and when I saw the rangers talking to you and looking inside your vehicle last night I thought to myself this guy needs a lawyer but when they left I stayed put, now I know what happened.

The part of Cook Forest we are at is nice and the old growth pines are… Continue

Cook Forest, Pa. - part 1

A Pennsylvania rangers patrol car stops abruptly, two rangers get out with flashlights, they march up to me rather quickly and say OH you're not in any trouble we just wanted to see your vehicle.

Rewind. A week and a half ago I asked Nick you want to go camping? I called Cooks Forest in Pa they had two spot lefts. I grabbed one and made plans. I tried to rally a few people into going but you know what, I am tired of cheer leading so it was me and Nick and that's alright by me. Nicks… Continue

Back from Cook Forest, Pa. - intro

Hey Gang,

Just returned from a 3 day escape to Cooks Forest. A quickly planned trip. For the most part things went well. It was a quieter trip, a trip to unclutter the mind as the camp chaplain said.

I saw things and areas that I have never been to before. And its not that far from my home, about 160 miles away. Not sure why I never went before. Maybe the high price of gas is good, its keeping me closer to home – yeah right.

It really is disturbing what has happened… Continue

An even OLDER first-timer taking baby steps, although I made a big boo-boo on eBay. (Don't know how to handle this web site, so this is an experiment.) Name is Carol.
