West Sand Lake, New York

We found home! Yeah! It’s in upstate New York! We are going to live in my Uncle Fred’s house, only about a mile from the farm!

Now I’m going to have to talk about this whole trip. It was a great idea, but I really don’t think I could’ve lasted any longer. My favorite place is probably Key West, because of the snorkeling, and then Frost Point, Canada. If anyone were to ask me what my favorite part in the RV is, I would probably answer using the bathroom at sixty miles an hour.

Uncle Eric and his family came down and dropped off some horses and then stayed for a couple of days. We will be in Frost Point, Canada in a couple of days and then wait for the people who are renting Uncle Fred’s house to move out. This is my last blog entry. School was demanding and I wouldn’t want to do another year of it. Bye.

July 15

We stopped at a Sam’s Club last night. This morning we unhooked the SUV and drove into Canada. We parked and walked over to take a look at the Niagara Falls! It was amazing! The river was rushing before it took a drop of 170 ft. I couldn’t believe that people actually went down that in barrels! We walked over to the museum and bought ourselves some tickets. We went into the exhibits that showed all of the people and barrels that went down the falls. We could actually crawl into the barrels to see what it was like.

Most survived, but a lot also died. I got to crawl into a barrel where a guy died. He made the falls, but then got stuck behind the water fall for over eighteen hours. He died, but his turtle survived. After that we walked around for awhile. Now I’m back on the road again. Please join me now in “The Besch Boy Sing-Along.”

“The Besch Boy Sing-Along”
On the road again,
Just can’t wait to get on the road again
My lifelong love is making music with my friends
And I just can’t wait to get back on the road again.
On the again,
Like a band of pixies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends
And it seems the world is goin’ my way, my way…

Thank you for joining “The Besch Boy Sing-Along”

When Ben went to the hospital in Colorado, the Fourth of July happened! We invited over the Galvins and then walked around Golden a little. After the walk we went over to a little festival that was going on. Olivia and I bought some party string and covered everyone in the spongy substance. We ran around for a couple of hours until it got dark. We all sat silently and watched the amazing array of lights, sounds and colors. Afterwards we went to our RV and ate some cake with strawberries and at least a pound of whip cream…..a slice :)

A couple days later Ben was released from the hospital! He came home and we played tennis with him and went down a white water river.

The next day we went up a huge mountain called Look Out Mountain. At the top we went to the Buffalo Bill Museum. Why would a museum about Buffalo Bill be on the top of a mountain? Well, because he himself was buried there! We watched a movie, observed his belongings, and left. Next we went to “the” Coors Brewery. It taught us how they make their special beer, and when we were done we could drink all the sodas we wanted.

The next day we invited Olivia over to our RV. We went to the pool and played for about two hours until we got tired and went back to the RV. We played around there for about another hour until Mr. Galvin pulled up and picked up Olivia.

After that day we had dinner at the Galvins. We had a great walk with the dogs and they showed us the house we would live in if we got a job there. We went back and then had some great dinner and played before our departure. We said our good byes and then left.

Dad finally talked me into trying to bike up Look Out Mountain. We got on our bikes and started riding. I was on my lowest gears the whole time we went up. We went a good ways up and then turned around. We broke 35 miles an hour going down, until we took a short cut on a little biking trail to the bottom.

We were driving and driving after departing Colorado, until dad stopped and told us to get on our jeans. We walked down to the horse stables and paid for an hour ride. We got a tour guide and then went and had to walk at 0.001 miles an hour with our lifeless steeds. Afterwards we looked at some pigs, cows, steer, goats, alpacas, buffaloes, baby llamas, and a colt.

We then drove through Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois to get to Nappanee, Indiana! We had dinner with Mrs. Marlene, Mr. Larry, Michael and Kerry. We played around, rode the ponies, ate pie and went to bed.

The next morning we went to the Corner Café. It was a restaurant that we went to almost every day for breakfast when we were here last, and had the nicest Amish waitress named Amanda. She remembered us perfectly and was just as nice as before.

We went to Mrs. Marlene’s that day. We helped Michel with his chores and then we got to drive and ride a pony. We went to a Mexican restaurant with Mr. Larry’s family and Mr. John’s family. We ate enchiladas and tacos and salads, and a lot of Mexican food. We took a horse and buggy ride back to Mr. Larry’s house. I bought another knife for my collection, and then we played until dark.

Now we are driving to the farm in New York. Bye!

Golden, Colorado

July 3
His eye was swollen! It was the third time this year. He went straight to the hospital and my mom stayed with Ben that night.

We went to the Galvin’s house again, but it was only Robby, Sam, Dad, and I. The Galvins walked around the neighborhood and finally met two boys who we got to play with. We ran through the woods together and saw a buck elk! Cameron, the older of the boys, showed us a tree stand where we got to sit. Then when Cameron, Robby and Shelby left, Olivia, Gabe (the younger of the two boys), and I got to explore the woods.

When Olivia left, Gabe and I stayed in the woods together a while longer, telling each other numerous gunfights we’ve been in, and he showed me where he hunted and which cliffs he would jump off of in the winter time. I have to admit, this would be a fun place to live. We went back and ate some wonderful spaghetti and salad, and great watermelon.

The next day Mom made us all clean up the RV. We emptied the bins down below, reloaded them, and then cleaned everything else. Bye
