Now that's the Howard I like; you were back to your wonderful writing style that I came to love.
I felt I was there with you guys while reading today's entry.
Love you both,
Linda's Mom

This is the kind of journal entry that has to bring people to the conclusion that being a full-time RVer is a very special thing. Your journal entry was beautiful and brilliant. A very soulful and enlightening revelation as to what RV-Dreams are made of.

Thank you, Howard.

Great post! The kind I love to read, just love the way you describe everything, its as if I was there. I can almost feel the same peace. Cant wait to be on the road and feel it myself. Thank you Howard.


Today's journal entry brought tears to my eyes! I envisioned being there along with my Linda enjoying that beautiful place. I hope I live long enough to enjoy what you and Linda felt at Juniper Lake!


Howard, you are so inspirational! I glean tidbits from every posting and look forward to your insights. Thank you for taking the time to share your journey.

Loved it Howard.. What a beautiful lake. Thanks for sharing it with us....

Simply the BEST!

Now,if you could only write so eloquently about cleaning toilets we would all be work campers. Great job as usual. Thanks for the visual and mental images you provide that allows us to feel that we are really there.

Howard - Two great posts in two days. Terrific job. Have you ever pondered how you have been spending your lives?

The American Dream is to own a house. You spent years helping others realize that dream.

Then you became enlightened and realized that the American Dream is far greater than owning a home. It is owning your life. Now you spend your time helping others realize that dream.

You are blessed....


I was only going to write that one word, but then I read Ron's comment and I BUSTED out laughing! Thanks Ron!

And Thank You Howard and Linda


Howard, thanks for sharing your day as I was reading and and viewing your pictures I was praying that one day I could experience this with my own eyes.

Aaaaahhhhhhh, YES!


Hey, is that a new format for display of the journal when you access it through the website? I don't recall seeing the title and subtitle so prominently before. If so, did you change programs or just parameters?

There is no power in the cabins. Any lights or appliances run off of propane. Yes, the cabins are grandfathered. There used to be a resort on Juniper back in the day and eventually the owner sold off lots and people built the cabins. What land remained was traded to the NPS for land elsewhere. It is one of the few pieces of privately held land within the boundaries of the NPS system. The cabin owners cherish this little piece of heaven and are very protective of the area. I value the time I get to spend at the cabin and cannot wait to share this place with my infant son. He will be the fourth generation to experience this very special place.

back when I was in high school my foster family and I used to frequent Juniper lake every summer.
i was fishing on the lake one time and someohow ended up with the lure in the boat and my pole in the water.
sitting there i actually watched that six and a half foot long white fiberglass pole sink all the way to the bottom.
from where I was in the boat that pole looked like it was about three inches long.
fortunately i was able to pull the pole back up, but it took me almost ten minutes.

My sister sent your writing to me and low and behold there are our family boats in one of your pictures. Glad you had a great trip. I too enjoy being out on the water and like to just sit there listening to the water, wind and birds.
