Where In the World Are Coleen and Bob?
(And Just What Are They Doing?)

We don't often enough take advantage of our national parks and all that they offer us and our fellow RVers. Camping, volunteer opportunities, photography, bird watching, hiking…and so much more. The National Park Service sent me several reminders this week and I share them with you here.

Wherever you are in your travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Coleen

Watkins Summit Group Bus. Info

Bob and I aren't old enough to take advantage of those Senior Passes. We're still working and earning a living, even while we are RVing. Part of our income comes from my being an Independent Watkins Associate (ID #362289) within the Summit Group. If you are like most people, you have no idea what that really means. If you are curious, take a look at my Watkins Summit Group website.
