Year Nine Recap 9/5/2021 to 9/4/2022

Year nine

Nine Years On the Road completed, Year Nine started while moochdocking at our friends house in Deer Park, WA - September 5, 2021, and ended Sept 4, 2022, moochdocking at our daughter's In-Law's house in Yakima, WA.

Even though we sold the house and moved into our 5th wheel in 2012, September 5th, 2013 was the date we hit the road, our 'anniversary'.

Here is the Year 9 Recap.

We started our 9th year moochdocking at our friend's house in Deer Park, WA while Donna and I worked in California at the Dixie Wildfire camp. After that, we headed to central Washington to visit family and to attend my 50th (one year late) High School reunion. Then Donna and I flew down to Phoenix and we helped our daughter & family move back up to Washington (Selah). We drove the U-haul truck. Then after more family visiting, we headed back south for the winter. We moved back & forth around Yuma, and spent some time in Quartzsite and our Christian Fellowship Rally. We had plans to head to Florida with some friends, but our 5th wheel was having some major structual issues, so we cancelled that and finished our winter in the Yuma area. Then in early April, headed north and traded our 5th wheel in on a new travel trailer. After some family visiting, we parked our RV in a Yakima, WA RV park and waited a call to go work in the wildfire camps. Donna is staying home this year and because of a 'light' fire season in California, I only was called out to work 9 days this summer. As year 9 comes to an end, we are planning our Southward trip. I think we are heading to Southern Texas his season.
