Time for some change!!

It’s time for us to clean up our eating! We’ve been eating badly for the last few weeks and we’re feeling it! We’ve been sluggish, exhausted, had all kinds of aches and pains, heartburn…overall just feeling like blah…not cool.

So, today we started the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. Learn more about the Challenge here and keep track of our progress at our side blog, ontheroadtofitness.wordpress.com. (This link isn’t working for some reason, I guess you’ll have to copy and paste until I can figure it out, sorry :( ) Leave us a comment to cheer us on! :D

Advocare is a nutrition and wellness company that I’ve been involved with for quite a few years. I have a bit more info on the other blog and on my Advocare site but I would love to answer any questions about it! Want to know more about the company, the products or the business opportunity? Email me at yosemitebound30@gmail.com.

We would love for you to join us on the 24 Day Challenge!


PS: We’re not doing the 24 Day Challenge just to lose some weight or get “skinny”, we’re doing it to boost our health.


Vacation for Mr Hardy

We’re slacking on updates but we’ll get caught up here soon. For the last 10 days we’ve been busy with this guy.


Mr Hardy at Silver Falls State Park

Dave’s oldest grandson Isaac flew out to spend 10 days of his summer vacation with us. We’ve taken him on a 1500 mile whirlwind tour of Oregon. He flies out tonight, time went by way too quick but I think he still enjoyed his stay.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a……. Iridium Flare?

What is an iridium flare? Well…..if you were with us at the “Star Party” at Stub Stewart last night about 10ish then you would be able to see one. Here is some background:


We also got to see the rings of Saturn with some awesome detail.


Fun, fun and more fun!!

The walk home (about 2 miles) was through the woods with (mostly) no flashlights because the moon was about 99% illuminated – bright!!!

Fire Bug Finally Fortunate

You know the feeling…Your REALLY need to do something. Not just anything but THAT thing. Well for Dave that would be a fire. Not just any fire but a camp fire… We were recently in Eastern Oregon and most of the area is under a fire ban. Massive wheat crops and dry desert grasses do not mix well with camp fires.

But now: S H A Z A M ! ! ! We are in fire central. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of woods and we have access to mega mucho old trees and tree limbs. I also have access to the campground wood stash but that is NO fun. Gotta go out there and pick up your own!!! I suppose in one of my previous lives I gathered wood for the communal fire ring. Or better yet I was the dude who gathered the wood (and lit it) as we burned the witches in Salem Mass back in the day… Who knows.

Anyway: This is a picture of my most current creation as we sit outside the RV, watch the most excellent hardwood burn (no pine here) and listen to the distant rumble of the race cars making the turns at the local speedway in Banks Oregon.


Who needs TV when you can watch that?

In town for a pizza…  We are eating at Spooky’s …   http://spookyspizza.com/

We have been working hard to get things done at the state park. Here is Heather up to her neck in her work of the day…


She gets WAY into her work…

After Heather hand dug the 4 foot wide 3 feet deep hole Dave and Dave (Not kidding there) double check the plans. A minor “crap” was uttered but the four posts were somewhere close to where they were supposed to be…
