Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!

Friday, April 25, 2008

Quick update....been delayed once more the last two days. I ended up with a propane leak that had to be fixed. The Extend-a-Stay valve vibrated too much and loosened up - leak detector kicked in and turned off all my appliances but until I turned off the main valve, it continued to leak propane. Now that is an exciting moment when you open your door to the very STRONG smell of propane...NOT!

The other delay was getting up the next morning and discovering that less than 2 hours of sun have heated up the door lock enough that it once again is jammed. Several more trips from the mobile mechanic....he created the perfect support for the Extend-a-Stay valve so no more leaks (one can only hope) and he ended up completely replacing the door lock.

Since the weather forecast to the south appears to be for warmer temps than I like, I'm going to bypass the 2-3 days of boondocking and am heading to a Passport America park, Tombstone Territories RV Park. I plan to stay three nights, meet up with some friends, see Tombstone & Bisbee, then head northeast where I plan to boondock several nights in the Coronado National Forest. I should be blogging before heading that telling if I will have Internet access then or not.

Till next time - keep on rollin',

PS. Thank you to Rawhide - the song and the series!


  1. I guess that we should be surprised we don't have more problems with our houses that bounce along the roads. Sometimes it does seem like they are coming up all the time, though. I keep hoping that I'll get all of them fixed and go a long while with none.

    I got our rig washed & the water system ready to go the other day and it is now sitting nearly level with the fridge cooling down getting ready to load things into it and head off Sunday morning. It will be good to be on the road again even if for only ten days or so.

  2. Wasn't it head'em up, move 'em out?

    Alas I must also be getting old because I remember the song...sigh.

    I have been reading for awhile but this is my first comment. I am impressed by your "pluck" to go it alone but I think it is neat. And I am envious as I sit at my desk each day and wonder why I am not out there with you????

  3. Just for you, Jay, the full lyrics to Rawhide. LOL!

    Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

    Keep movin', movin', movin',
    Though they're disapprovin',
    Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!
    Don't try to understand 'em,
    Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    Boy my heart's calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin', be waiting at the end of my ride.

    Move 'em on, head 'em up,
    Head 'em up, move 'em out,
    Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!
    Set 'em out, ride 'em in
    Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
    Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide.

    Full Lyrics

    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Rollin', rollin', rollin'

    Rollin', rollin', rollin'
    Though the streams are swollen
    Keep them dogies rollin'
    Rain and wind and weather
    Hell-bent for leather
    Wishin' my gal was by my side.
    All the things I'm missin',
    Good vittles, love, and kissin',
    Are waiting at the end of my ride

    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Head 'em up, move 'em on
    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in,
    Ride 'em in, count 'em out,
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in

    Keep movin', movin', movin'
    Though they're disapprovin'
    Keep them dogies movin'
    Don't try to understand 'em
    Just rope, throw, and brand 'em
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    My hearts calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin',
    Be waitin' at the end of my ride.
