Merry, Merry

Nothing too exciting happening here. We pick up the Bago next week and hit the road again. Looking forward to more adventures in 2017. My photo of the Bago in Lone Pine won the Escapees RV Club photo contest and will appear sometime in 2017 on their magazine cover. I’m still having fun with the […]
