Too cold and rocky and no tomato sandwiches anywhere... So I went to the desert and all I found was a horse with no name but I loved the sunrises and sunsets.

I think I'll stick to the highways and mostly paved roads, small towns, state and national parks, BLM Lands and National forest and maybe a lighthouse or two... and a little desert and a little mountain. And I'll have a good cup of coffee and a tomato sandwich...

Just saw this on Fox News. Woman to be shot out of cannon at 9am in NJ. Pic attached!! 60' in the air. Not sure if it 60' high or 60' long. I'll watch it. Edit--60' high 200 yard long !!

Listening to the news. Some fellow is going to jump from a perfectly good airplane at 25,000' without a parachute or wing suit and try to hit a 100x100 net suspended 200' above the ground. He has special lights surrounding the net to tell him if he is on the correct 'glide' path.


It appears cannons are becoming passť.

I'd bet Giancarlo could do that from 30,000'. He did say something about skydiving didn't he?

Giancarlo will be doing good if he doesn't get a break...

BTW, you can increase your free wifi time by slipping a Canadian quarter in the SD slot on your computer. I think you get an extra 12.5 minutes, but of course, that's metric time.
Us Bears know stuff...*

I'll meet you at the Henry Ford Museum a week from Sunday.


*But quite often it's wrong.

We'll be staying at Detroit Greenfield RV Park so we will have time to take in the Village also. We normally try to avoid large cities... Detroit's not large is it?

We stayed at Camp Dearborn. Maybe 40 mile. Nice enough park. We then drove coach to museum and parked with the tour busses

No Detroit not big!! Very safe in all areas too.

Hello Thread Killers,

Navy, what will you be doing at the VA? Always thank veterans when I see them. They are often stunned.

So how is everything going? Looks like the same crowd, same items up for discussion, and looks like someone got shot out of a canyon! Yikes, not on my bucket list nor that jumping out of a perfectly good plane either.

Loving summer and camping! You all have a great one and remember, LOLT!

The Girl Hey Navy!
