Travels With Dick and Judy

Follow us in our trials, triumphs and tribulations, while on the road in our motor home "The Liberty Belle". We chose to forsake the conventional lifestyle in our 3,000+ square-foot home to move into a 40-foot Winnebago Ultimate Freedom. Travel with us as we take you on the road with us in our new lifestyle.

Monday night, Charles, John and Joan invited the workampers over for a Brat & covered dish get-together.  This was a great time for this sort of thing, because the night was cool and several of our comrades were moving on.  Martha and Lee are leaving this weekend to make their way toward theer next gig in Maine, and Charlie and Paulette are supposed to move on to another campground closer to the end of the month.  Our contribution to the gathering was baked beans (homemade from scratch).  Everyone must have enjoyed them, because we had no leftovers to carry back.  Other dishes were Martha’s Veggie Casserole, Jodie’s corn-filled cornbread muffins (like a baked corn fritter), Terri’s pickled carrots, string beans and dills – I had to mop the sweat from my head after sampling those.  The main course was brats (beef, beer and jalapeno).  The brats must have been really good, because Judy even liked them and she usually shies away from sausage.  Joe provided dessert fare of peach cobbler and apple crunch, and  other workampers provided additional dishes.

 John and Charles built a fire in the fire pit and Joan was our chef-of-the-evening with assistance from Joe.  Later, Charles treated everyone to a brief show of his homemade fireworks that were really, really loud!  There was some excitement when one of the fireworks “miss-fired” and shook the ground with its secondary detonation.  Fortunately, the ground was still wet so no fire followed.  After the miss-fire, things started to wind down and the gathering began to break up.  A few of us stuck around and some really good conversation followed.  All-in-all, things came together really smoothly and it was a good night.
