One of my projects while waiting for our new family member to arrive has been to review and reorganize my picture files. I like to think that I have been pretty organized for some time. I have files by year and location in many cases and since 2000 have a pretty detailed filing system. However, with copies and duplicates creeping into my so called system along with some “corrected pictures” mixed in with uncorrected pictures, as they say in the TV shows, it is complicated. Many of my older pictures that have been scanned into my digital system have some interesting file names –like green shoe box pictures. You get the idea. My computer tells me that it is holding well over 75, 000 pictures. So I have my work cut out for me.
As I have been reviewing my life via these pictures, I enjoyed looking at what we were doing for fun just before we decided to go full time in an RV. While in some ways, it is wildly different than the RV life, but in many ways there are lots of things in common, as well. So I thought today I would share some of the pictures from this period. I am sure you will be able to see the things in common with the RV life along with those that are quite different.
