Thanks Tom. Got a chance to use it this weekend again. We really enjoy ourselfs. My doctor had put me on some more meds and if I start feeling a bit better, the wife and I are heading north for a week or two. I would like to hit the Smokies one more time. I did ask if it was ok and my doctor gave me the go ahead. I was told just to take it slow and easy. I will have to give it a couple days before I know if I'm up to the trip.

Let us know how it goes. You might catch the peak leaf season there (ours peaked last weekend).
I hope to take mine to Parris Island next week if the weather is nice (the wife's not much on cold wet camping). We're going for the the youngest son's graduation. Take care.

Well, we got back last night on our short COLD trip to the Smoky Mountains. In fact, we cut it short by a couple days. Due to my health problems, the mountains were kicking my butt. Every day late in the afternoon, I was total wipe out.

Anyway, the trip was very nice other then cold weather. Color of the trees were outstanding and the people were super nice. After a few days rest, we are planning another quick trip.

Before we left, I had installed a set of airbags on my truck. That did the trick of taking any and all swing out of the drive. As for as the camper itself, everything work like a charm. Only problem we had was a tree rat dropping big and I mean BIG acorns on the roof every evening. Man, did I wanted to put that sucker in the pot! No matter what I did, it wouldn't go away.

Glad you had a good trip and the all the work you did on the restoration of your camper paid off.
I just returned from the sunny South (Hunting Island near Beaufort SC) where it was cold in the morning but perfect starting about 10:30AM. I got my son back for a couple days. Nothing like summer camp at Parris Island to mature a boy into a young man.
Also, returning home, I was the only RV traveling North :>)

Tom, I was one of those 17 year old Marines. And you are right,12 weeks does change a boy into a man. I went in weighting 145 lbs. 12 weeks later, I was 175lbs ready to take on the world.

Anyway, we were planing another trip, but I'm having a setback from the new meds. In fact, yesterday I had to hit up the nitro a few times. I will be heading to the doctors tomorrow again.

This post just might make 100 - It started with a leaky EPDM roof and forced retirement, then ended with a fully restored camper, air shocks for the Ford, a few set backs, and a couple camp trips to fight some fish and visit the Smokies.
I have 4.5 gal of 'Liquid Roof' I intended to put on my EPDM roof this fall, but life got in the way. I was able to fix my EPDM roof leaks with Eternabond Tape (good stuff). The good folks at Liquid Roof informed me that the shelf life (in original container) is 5 years, so maybe next year after a spring trip to Pensacola and a tour along the Pascagoula run.
Can you recommend any camping locations to stay at while along the gulf (State or National parks are our normal)? We do bring a small dog along. I have friends to visit in Biloxi, Texarkana (Arkansas side) and maybe Texas if I can get the time off work. My exposure to the area is limited - the only time I traveled the gulf was 4 days after Katrina and boondocking was the only choice I had (which was fine with me but the DW likes to be pampered). So any recommendations would be appreciated.
