I Felt the Earth... Move... Under My Bus

I was minding my own business, wide awake in bed the other night at 2:30 am (don't ask) when I felt our bus shake. We haven't moved from that large campground in Crescent City, and are still right on the ocean. I knew there was no wind. I got up and peered out all the windows into the dark, to see if there was a prowler/prankster/town drunk/giant pelican.


The next day, I got this email from someone who has read QUEEN OF THE ROAD (obviously, a woman of impeccable taste) and now keeps up with our travels: Heard there was an earthquake south of Eureka...did the queen get shaken out of her berth?

Thing is, Annette's traveling in Cambodia (and you think I move around, alot), yet she knew there was a 5.1 at 2:30 am and I didn't.

I think I have to start reading the local papers, or something. Isn't there some kind of election next week? You and your silly democracies. Come back to the monarchy, subjects! All is forgiven!

You are so spoiled and I am so jealous!

And what else should a Queen be but spoiled?
(I'm also not so sure this post illustrates my being spoiled, but rather, my ignorance!)


A good earthquake leaves you with no doubt as to what happened.

Here there Queen of the Road. I wandered over from AW, as you commented on my thread. Now I want to know more about your proposal to publishing process. May I tweak your ear?

Elizabeth -

A lot of writers have been asking me the same thing, so I'm going to do a blog post on this in a few weeks. Feel free to forward me some questions, and I'll do the best I can to answer them.

Annette Baesel:

The true reason that I knew and you didn't? I am addicted to my blackberry and igoogle (pardon me your majestry for speaking in foreign tongues). Although perhaps having Tim read you the local paper once in a while (I cringe at the thought of your royal fingers darkening with newsprint)might not be a bad idea!

Good luck with the radio interviews!

Diane...aka Kessie:

Doreen...I loved the book...I picked up a copy just as we started out on our Great Adveture...as full-timers. We have a real nice 5th wheel, and I LOVE martinis, so it fit the bill. I passed it along to a friend I met along the way who is such a full-time wannab!!

So much to relate to...we travel with 2 cats...so far we've made it as far as Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola, Florida. The Emerald Coast is wonderful. What a wonderful lifestyle.

Are you still traveling?

Thanks for a GREAT Read..
"Kessie"...Queen of the Road!!
