With the current heatwave, work on Prudence has slowed. The next couple of days will not see a lot of changes. Last weekend was a killer heat wise, I just could not drink enough water. So I am learning from the experience and will limit my work during the heat of the day. Stay cool and safe out there, dink lots of water.
If you haven’t seen this weeks video at Temple Farms check it out here. Paula took me for Father’s day, it was really cool. As an update, deconstruction is done and that video will be coming next week. We are in the middle of prepping the floor so we can start building. We did take advantage of an 11% rebate sale at Menards and stocked up on most of the building materials we will be needing soon. Paula’s garage is full of stuff, that hopefully will be in the bus soon. I also picked up a sound dampening materail I plan to put under the floor, hoping that will help with noise as we’re driving. More on that later.
I want to start out with an apology for not posting in a while. but I’m back. So big things happening in ThePrudentTraveler’s world. Videos will be rolling out on Tuesdays every week and you can find new Instagram posts on Sunday night and Thursday morning. I think Wednesday will be blog post day. I still have to figure out my twitter posts, I have really neglected it. This last weekend we went to the Ray Bradbury Art and Music festival, you can find that in the next YouTube video along with a couple big announcements. Take care and talk to you next week. Remember, travel, explore and live life to it’s fullest.
This is video 2 of 3 from my trip to Witchita to see family. We spend sometime at the Botanica Garden in Witchita, they had a really cool butterfly exhibit and then we went to the Sedgwick zoo. We had a lot of fun and I want to thank my cameraman assistant Bently. He did a really good job. You can check out the video here: https://youtu.be/Pe5fM5k_sZE
This weeks video was the beginning of Labor day weekend. Paula and I went to Wichita KS to see my family. In this video we get a chance to catch a game at Busch stadium and explore Jefferson city, MO a little bit on our way. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/X7OxcdeYn_U
Hey everyone, I’m Russ and I love to travel and explore this great country. I currently, work a full time job in higher education so most of my traveling is between terms, long weekends and semester breaks. Working on going from part time travel to full time. This weekend Paula and I took a day trip north to Door County to look at the fall colors. We had great weather and we saw so much beauty. Of course we took back roads all the way. Along the way we stopped at the Wind Point light house and in little pub in Kewaunee, WI. When in Kewaunee check out Rick and Sally’s Bucket House. I had the Bucket burger, it was awesome. I hope you enjoy it. As always you can find the video on my YouTube channel. Here is the direct link to the video: https://youtu.be/VZDTDAnqw2o
This weekend it was time to clean out and put the campervan into storage. Most likely it will be there for the winter. In the mean time i will be looking at mini school buses. In this weeks video we prep the van for storage. You can find it here, I hope you enjoy it.
This week has been crazy for me. Since deciding I had to let the campervan go I needed to find a new daily driver for work. Although I found one pretty quickly, I needed a bit of work and had some puzzling symptoms. Well after a lot of trouble shooting it is finally good to go and I can reliable get back and forth to work. Now I can start to think about my next camper project.
In this weeks video I want to share a bit of the weekend I had with my daughter a Universal Studios Orlando. We both had a great time. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/pNqO7NF84FYp
This will be a short update post. Something happened over the weekend that will change my travel dreams. I will be putting together a short video tonight after work explaining what has happened and what it will mean. Keep an eye out for the video.
Last night Paula and I went down to the lake to enjoy the lakefront and have a picnic. BTW, awesome food sweetie. So we were walking around afterwards and taking a few pictures of the Kenosha skyline at sunset, when I noticed something strange next to a vase. Paula picked it up and it was a painted rock. So apparently, this is a thing. PeoplePaint rocks and hide them. When you find it you post a picture and then re hide it, a very cool idea. So here is the one we found.
I really liked this idea, I may even paint a rock myself. Paula’s daughter will re hide the rock today. If you are interested in more information I will like to the facebook group Kenosha Rocks.
