OK, Definitely Time to “Load ‘er Up”

The departure time is getting close now. So many things we have to wait until the very last minute to do……… but the time has come..


P1040692
Ms. Pat had her last Line Dancing class Friday and here she is finishing up a few last stitches on her sewing machine as she gets things ready to head South.



P1040693
We took Gregg and Bonnie up to the Old Gold Mine where our personal “Cache” is located. We wanted to give it one last check before we left it for the winter..



P1040696
Here they are way back in the "mine"…


P1040700
Then we went on up top where our hidden cache is and showed them the view.  Gregg spotted the cache right off.


P1040701
Then yesterday we checked out the annual Arts and Crafts Festival out in Custer State Park. Here Ms. Pat checks out all the Entertainment and Activities. This affair gets bigger and bigger every year…  We have watched it grow from just a small gathering into what it has become today. Unbelievable! It's is a two day affair held before the Buffalo Roundup tomorrow (Monday).


P1040703
Gregg and Bonnie inspecting the many many booths of all the different crafts.



P1040704
It was a gala affair with every type of item you could dream of.  These type deals wear me out in a heartbeat.  It all seems so elaborate and vast that it just blows my mind.



P1040705
There are many, very talented artists from all over the country. I especially enjoyed watching this gentleman create this beautiful creation of a Buffalo….. What talent!!



P1040706
Ms. Pat also found what she loves!! I thought it was quite appropriate, this sign and Ms. Pat standing right along side… Ms. Pat Loves to Quilt!!

So now we are off to Church this morning and then tomorrow (Monday) is the Big Buffalo Round up!!  Then we will finish the winterizing project here at the "Cabin in the Hills" and move into our "Home On WHEELS"!!


The plan is for a Thursday departure date. If the Good Lord is willing, we will make it, if not we’ll change it. But that’s the plan!!  Maybe I’ll find time to post a Blog Wednesday and maybe I won’t. So if you don’t see me, you’ll know what I'm doing…

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

God Bless you all and Travel Safe..

Great hike up to the Old Gold Mine. Found your Geocaching Website. Sounds like fun. Will have to set one up in Tennessee.

Now slow down Mike--you sound as if you are on speed dial!! Glad we've turned Ms. Pat into a quilter.

How talented that guy is painting the buffalo...WOW!

We really enjoy going to Arts and Crafts Festivals. We are mostly in awe of the talents of others.

Can't wait to see the photos from the Buffalo Roundup. Hope you two have a wonderful time!

I too am always in awe of talented folks like that fellow doing the Buffalo. How sculptors can do their thing, wood carvers making all sorts of intricate things, etc. Always amazes me. Nice feeling to have travel plans to look forward to eh:))

Spot on with this write-up, I really think this website wants far more consideration. I'll probably be again to learn way more, thanks for that info.
