      Sertoma with TCT

This month has been a busy one. Between my work, two camping trips and a road trip to Alabama I've not been home much. My work has been busy. We took a short trip in the Airstream to Sertoma with TCT at the beginning of December with about 60 other vintage RV rigs earlier this month. There was no schedule or agenda, just hangout and see who can put out the most Holiday decorations and Christmas lights. There was absolutely nothing to blog about except Jett getting some cow love. 

Then in the middle of December Tim and I drove to Alabama with Jett to get his Mom and drive her back to Florida. This was Jett's longest road trip yet and she did pretty good considering. Jett loved the cooler weather there and meeting even more family. Including Jose the chihuahua. It was another good experience for her. I try to socialize her as much as possible with people, dogs and different environments. 

Currently we are camping at Lake Louisa State Park, just eleven miles from the house, for Christmas again until Sunday. This is our fifth year doing this. It sure does take the stress out of the Holidays. My mother and step-father are here in their RV. Aunt Martha, who is down from Ohio, is here as well staying with my mom. All my other relatives who live nearby came to camp for Christmas morning. It was a fun gathering for everyone. 

While here at Lake Louisa Jett, now eight months old and 66 pounds, is becoming a Seasoned 'Jet' Setter Camp Dog. She has gone on a few hikes and got to swim in one of the lakes here. Jett has a bit more maturing and growing to go but she still promises that one day she will be the best dog ever. Tim and I also took our first stab at camp Dutch Oven Cooking outside.  Our first recipe chosen was Pot Roast. It turned out super yummy!!!

As it looks now January will be an idle month for the Airstream. February will then be the start of our 2016 Camping season. Next year will bring a few new trips for us to explore. And 2016 will also bring big changes for us both in camping and our home life. We hope everyone has a happy and healthy New Year. Happy Holidays all!!!

Hang on! Bumpy ride ahead . . .
