Wonder Egg Enhancements

 It's Always nice for The Wonder Egg to return to the nest for a bit of tweaking.  "No, Oscar, not twerking ... tweaking!"  Here we are, camped out beside the Oliver Travel Trailers sales office.

 When The Wonder Egg hatched in 2008, 3G was the rage in cell phones and its original antenna did just fine.  But, now in the 4G world we live in, a new antenna was needed.  There it is on top, the thing that looks like an upside down oil filter.  It's the newest fang dangled antenna available that will receive all the current cell phone frequencies, plus WIFI signals WOOOHOOO!
Thanks, Dustin, for making it happen.  :)

 Oscar saw the new fender treatments on the 2015 models, and just had to have some put on his Wonder Egg.  I think they look pretty good, don't you?

I spent most of my time at the factory with The Wonder Egg while Oscar languished on the laps of the sales staff.  He played a concert for them on the Japanese Shakuhachi and gave both Alicia and Anita signed copies of his Shakuhachi pin-up photo for their offices.

The Amazing Dancing Flamingos

While visiting our dear friends, Chuck & Geri, we drove to Apalachicola, FL and visited The Tin Shed, where Oscar became entranced with the most amazing synchronized flamingo dance team.
He yelled "Hey Pete, get a video of these guys!!!"

So he reached his paw into my pocket, grabbed my wallet, scurried into The Tin Shed and walked out with his own flamingo dance team for The Wonder Egg.

Oscar & His Grandmother

Oscar had a great time hanging out with his 91 year old grandmother when we visited Florida.

We're heading north now  . . .

The 2015 Long-Wander Has Begun . . .

The Wonder Egg's barn is empty as we pass out of the gate to begin our long summer wander.  Where will Oscar go this year?

Keep an eye on the blog to find out!

As boring and tedious a trip along I-10 can be, it does hold some treasures.  One of our favorite layovers is Fairview State Park, in Madisonville, LA.  Oscar likes the spooky trees, though he's glad the scary Halloween goblins aren't out this time.

This year we are members of Harvest Hosts, which has hosts throughout the US who allow RVrs to stay for free and "boondock" on their property which can be farms, wineries or
agri-tourism sites.  The settings are very unique and peaceful.  Check them out at

We stayed at Golden Acres Farm, near Monticello, FL for an evening and were guarded by an army of free range chickens.  Here are some on duty keeping watch over the Wonder Egg.

Golden Acres raises Tennessee fainting goats, lambs and guinea hens, who Oscar says make the most awful racket!

These kids and Oscar were best friends for the afternoon.

We put in an order for an early wake-up call, and Mr Rooster came strutting around the trailer at the crack of dawn tooting' his horn, as it were.

 On our way, with fond memories and anticipation of future unique camping experiences with Harvests Hosts.

The journey continues . . .

Bored Dog

Obviously Oscar is bored staying at home so much.
Time to start packing and hit the road for the summer.
