The adventures of Pioneer Girl travelling with enthusiastic Camper Barn Owl Guy

Started as a blog about my trip from Pittsburgh to California in a Ford Pickup, hauling a 30' refurbed trailer/camper. Ah, California Dreaming, 'n all that. Found that adventures can be long distance or in your own neighborhood... I look for my own twist on local sites, don't take the known for granted...and always find something new. It's easy, just open your eyes..

Crimson and Cloverdale

Good morning, O Pioneers!  GPS coordinates track us in Cloverdale, Indiana at  7:49am.  We are heading due west to Illinois.  Beautiful sunset over the prairie lands yesterday evening, like the gates of heaven and it changed constantly forr about 20 minutes or so, culminating in a huge crimson red sun on the horizon.  Cloverdale is about 1/2 hour outside of Indianapolis.  rl

Yesterday was a learning curve for both Barn owl guy and myself.  Nerves a little rattled.  But westward towards Terre Haute and points west.  First night camping and exhaustion and some rain on the roof made for a good nights sleep.

Have to go, will update the post later when I find another WIFI spot,  I have a picture of the sun I'm anxious to post.

Bye, Pioneer Girl
