Journal entry – 6 August 2015, Thurs – Iowa

Journal entries are just that – the digital copy of my hand-written entries in my journal. If you aren’t interested in the daily details of our adventure, feel free to skip on to the next “regular” post.

After breakfast we took care of chores around the RV, I posted more journal entries after Ashley checked them, and it was still early! We didn’t get up with the alarm but definitely earlier than usual.


Rode our bicycles to the grocery store to pick up the last ingredients for supper, then on back home. Ashley read while I went down to the disc golf course at Riverside Park. Short course, very open with generous pars. I would consider them all par 2-3 while they were listed as 4-5s. So I came in well under after playing the 9 holes twice, even though I am sadly out of practice.


Back home we had taco salad for supper with some corn on the cob as a side. Delicious! After eating we prepped the rest of the ground beef for tomorrow’s chili.


After supper I pulled out the laptop (for the first time since hitting the road) and looked at saved reference materials. Made notes from some saved ebooks and threw some articles and business ideas on a thumbdrive to read later.

I did find the handstand how-to book I’d saved. Knew I had a copy somewhere and think that it would be a fun skill to have. Easy enough to practice, now that I have some guidance, and doesn’t require anything but some space.

Put away computer and art supplies then read a bit before bed.
