Uh-Oh

(This month I will be participating in the A to Z Blogger Challenge. Each day my post will begin with successive letters of the alphabet.  My A to Z Blog Challenge topics are inspired by our recent 90-day trip on our motorhome. Click here to see links to other responses to this challenge.)

U is for Uh-Oh

I can't think of anything on the topic of our trip that would be especially worthy to write about that begins with the letter "U".

I thought about Ululate:
I heard coyotes howling when we stayed at Ft. Yargo State Park in Georgia. It seemed strange to hear the pack yipping in the night, as I associate coyotes with the west. 

I considered Uber:

The motor home is uber-cool. After years of tent camping, then hauling a pop-up, and then finally a small pull-behind camper, I can't believe that we have a motorhome and have this much space!

Mr. Dreamy suggested U-boat:

Since I did see a submarine go by Fort Clinch State Park in Florida, on its way to St. Mary's Naval Base. 

I could have used Ultralight:

As I saw this experimental, ultralight helicopter at the 55th Annual Cactus Fly-In in Casa Grande, AZ. 


But, I just couldn't seem to write a post about any of those.

I couldn't use Utah, since we didn't go there on this trip.
I couldn't use Uncle, since we didn't see my Uncle Don on this trip.
I couldn't use Ugly, since everything we saw was quite beautiful. 

Uh-oh.... the A to Z committee might find out about my struggles and I won't earn the honor of displaying the "I survived the A to Z Challenge" badge on my site!

  1. Your motor home looks lovely! It looks like a "home away from home"! :)

  2. We have coyote here, too. Unlike many, I love them. I respect and admire survivors. They have managed to live in man's shadow almost everywhere now. If man takes precautions, this should be able to work.

  3. Wow ~ your motor home is like a house! Tucker and Gypsy look so cute on the couch. Coyotes are amazing. They have moved steadily east in recent decades. Coyotes actually have made it across the ice to Newfoundland. I'll bet they'll be in Labrador next ~ if they aren't there already. "U" is a tough one. I think you did great! Have a good one!

  4. I like "Uber" because it fits. Your motor home is very nice. We just traded our toy hauler and a slide out camper in on a medium sized motor home that slides out. I can't wait to use it!
    I think Uber fits your whole trip, because all of your photos have been Uber-cool!

  6. Oh to travel in an RV. I envy you for sure. I imagine you hit an uh-oh every now and again beside coyotes too, but well worth the risk.. God bless, Maria at Delight Directed Living
