Our summer in the California Gold Country has been in a remote area.

Getting out to see things has been harder than usual.

We got to Lake Tahoe and Donner Summit, plus various other sites in
the Gold Country, and the California Railroad Museum in Sacramento.

On our way here, we got to Meteor Crater AZ, Sequoia National Park,
and Yosemite National Park.

It will take some time to get these pictures and movies organized,
then selected for Web Pages.

We are planning to leave Sept 6.

Our plan is to head east on I-80 to Cheyenne Wyoming, then detour to
the Black Hills and take care of some personal business.

From South Dakota, we will head for  Schirtz TX, just north of San

We will be working in the activities department of Stone Creek

Since the resort does not offer enough hours for pay to meet our
needs, we will need to work other jobs.

Due to the number of hours Phyllis and I have had to work to make
ends meet, our real reason for traveling — to see and report the
natural and scenic wonders of this great country — has been running
behind. Also running behind has been the web site itself. I now have
3 winters and 2 summers worth of material that has not yet made it
to the web site.

This is besides material from travels before we became workampers.

Again, the primary cause has been the amount of time we have to
spend working for pay and the amount of time we have to spend trying
to find jobs.

To attempt to at least partially solve this problem, we have entered
into an associate program with

We have been pleased with how Amazon has handled customer service
issues for us in the last 6 years, and they now have a wide variety
of products at good prices.

Amazon also allows us only to advertize particular products we do
believe in and to have complete control over all advertising on our

The way it works is this: You go to
and click on any of our links to AMAZON. You may be purchasing one
of our RECOMMENDED items, or you may be purchasing any other item.
Most of the items on the AMAZON web site will earn us a small
advertising commission.

If you were going to purchase on AMAZON anyway, this is a free way
to help support TRAVELINGMORGANS.COM and help us to bring
you information about the natural scenic wonders of the 48

To just use us as a portal products you know you want to buy on
Amazon go to
and scroll down to the bottom of that main page. Click on the word
AMAZON and make your purchases. We will receive a small percentage
of most of the purchases as an advertising fee.

To see products we recommend, go to
(or you can use the RECOMMENDED button on any of our pages).

The recommendations will be increasing. We only recommend products
we use and believe in.

In the case of some electronics, the exact product we use is no
longer available and so we recommend the product we would buy if our
electronics were to die tomorrow.

We also specify the product we actually use.

Besides the great changes in RECOMMENDED, we have also finally
finished  our 2010 page.

We also have a lot of information on 2011

Our section on SOUTH DAKOTA, especially the very thorough part on
the Black Hills, is now complete.


We have added a page with RV LINKS

We have begun a section on California, but it is still very rough
and will not be fully available for some time.
now has over 100 pages and thousands of pictures, all taken from our
personal visits.

None of the natural scenic wonder pages have any advertising at all.

Only the single link on the home page, and pages in our RECOMMENDED
section and our RV LINKS page have any advertising at all, and most
of the RECOMMENDATIONS are not ones where we receive any financial
compensation. They are just restaurants with good food, good service
and (usually) reasonable prices; campgrounds were you get good
value, and places that provide some sort of service that delivered
good value. Anything providing any monetary compensation is clearly

I do not intend to talk about the cost of running this web site

I really dislike talking about finances.

But since we have changed our policy from NO ADVERTISING to LIMITED
ADVERTISING, we wanted to advise our friends.

Does it happen that you will be somewhere along our fall travel path
that we mentioned above?

Or anywhere close to that?

We do go out of our way to meet friends. Look at our 2010 page for
an example.
