Leaving NAS Pensacola

15 January 2018

Our last night at NAS Pensacola and a sunny day with a high of 50 and low of 35. John spent last few days doing repairs on the Bounder replacing headlights and refrigerator vent on top. Headlight repair was more tedious than he thought and it took several days. Hardest part was getting old ones out even with help from our neighbor.But at last they are in and so much nicer..no cloudiness and water inside. Thank you honey for all the good work you do.

On our way out tomorrow we will stop at World Ford for an oil change. We have used them before for service. Then a 150 mile trip up to Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, AL for two weeks. This will be our second visit.

Today I went over to the Barrancas National Cemetery to locate the grave of Geronimo's 2nd wife who died from pneumonia while at Fort Pickens. She was the only Apache death at the fort while they were imprisoned. The cemetery is on the NAS.

There is extensive history of the NAS on wikipedia..far too detailed to include in my blog, but makes for interesting reading if so interested.

Well, seems Hope and family got a new addition to the family since Casey passed over the Rainbow Bridge. She  is an Australian Cattle dog also known as Blue Heeler. Shawn raised them when he was younger. After many suggestions, the family decided on the name Harley. Grandsons are helping with the care and potty training. They say it is easier than taking care of their pigs.
