Day 18 - Goodbye 2020!

Thursday (18) - The last day of 2020! Some would say FINALLY but I can’t really complain too much. We had picked up a TT membership at the end of last year and this enabled us to make back-to-back reservations up to 120 days in advance. This allowed us to stay all along the Oregon coast during the summer when we would normally been back home. For this year we spent 242 nights within the TT/Encore system. Around ⅔ of the year. It makes it a pretty good deal. There are lots of people complaining about TT but it’s a convenient default and I anticipate quite a bit of use in 2021. 

I thought that the drop in temperature around noon yesterday was pretty dramatic. That's a cold front coming through! We are still in Athens, TX, for a couple more days before heading to a TT park south of here. A bit closer to Houston and we will be there for about 2½ weeks. We then plan to head further south to enjoy some warmer temperatures. 

I’ve been enjoying being a VE, volunteer examiner, for the remote ham radio tests. It’s as much social as anything else. A good group. I’ve been a certified VE for the Anchorage club for several years as we were using their paper tests in Fairbanks but had only interacted with one person in the Anchorage club once when I took their certification exam (online).

I hope everyone has a safe New Years Eve. We are having Garrett, Carolyn, and family over for dinner. Nothing fancy. Just a pot roast w/mashed potatoes and gravy. And I made up a batch of brownies for dessert. It has been 42°F for the last 24 hours. I think the cat is wanting warmer temperatures...


  1. Sounds as if you are having an active, satisfying time on the road. I hope that continues in 2021 and hopefully things will become easier at some point down the road.

    1. I hope things become simpler and better down the road as well! Happy New Year!
