Spring may finally be here!

After what seems to me to be a very late emergence from Winter to Spring, yesterday was an absolute beautiful Spring day.

Finally we were able to get the Jeep out of hibernation and take it for a little spin. Ahhhhh feels so good to hit some two-tracks again.
First up a little dirt and a whole lot of swamp. Next up...
Much more in the way of swamp..but a very nice view. We counted 10 geese and one muskrat that seemed bothered by us being there.

Unfortunately we only had one hour left to spare on our ride so we took a two-track that neither of us has had a chance to visit...and low and behold we ran across the White River. Due to recent heavy rains the river was very high. We could tell from the banks being so wet that the water really rose in this area.

We didn't want to leave this very quiet and tranquil area. So we trudged up what seemed like 100 hundred steps to the Jeep and decided our morning of fun was over. Back home for some back breaking yard work.

We managed to rake the last of the Winter leaves and decided enough was enough. Hit the deck ...yes we did. Sat on the deck for a couple of hours and enjoyed the smell of the steaks slowly cooking on the grill.

All in all it was a great "real" first day of Spring. The temps were a balmy 68 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

On the RV front.  We began looking at a few RV's of interest, and are not happy with the double doors we are seeing in some of the models. It still appears we are on track for a purchase next year. Cannot wait!
