"37.50 for three tents?"
"Well, that includes the scenery and wildlife fund"

We looked for "made in USA" folding recumbent trikes. None were available two years ago, but more models from other countries are now available. Here is one from Austrailia.

We have two Cannondale recumbent bikes that are gathering dust. After riding the trikes, we have not touched the bikes.

I know...it was shameful, back then.

I'm happy that you are not "jealous" or envious of today's Vets...getting better treatment than you, by society.

However, that they have to wait for decent medical care now that they are home is just as shameful.

Motorhomes with garages...

Talking to Barb about how her Smart Car weighs only 1480 lbs got me thinking about MHs w/ garages.

Like these: 2015 Outlaw Toy Hauler Motorhomes: Gas & Diesel, Class A & C RVs

That way, you don't have to worry about towing, and not being able to back up...and all that.



Have any of you ever considered anything like that?

That would be cool if you could spare the garage room. We had a smarty and I think it was about 9 feet long. These garages seem to go up to 10 foot two.

Also - on the Equinox - we are only looking at the 4 Cylinder with LT1 package. Not all the bling - but some - and having driven old cars for so long it's pretty amazing. Backup camera is nice. The road behind the dealership is undeveloped - so I punched it. I told the guy - ya know I read the 4 cylinder was sluggish, but compared to the Motorhome it runs like a scalded dog. LOL.

Now tell us what's been going on. We've missed you!
Well, it's a long story. The short version is:

School is kicking my behind. DO NOT attempt 28 credits in one term, ever. I did last term and I am taking 24 in this term. I'm working at warp speed trying to keep up with all of my classes, homework, tests, papers, etc.

We got married!

Camping season started April 1.

Our daughter is expecting her first child.

I had a birthday and Mother's Day in the same week. My kids are awesome - peanut butter pie is delicious, and I got lots of cool hand made presents.

I got a MacBook Pro. I spent a weekend editing, photoshopping and creating slide shows of our wedding, and the two families of grandkids.

We got a major contract at work, after a brutal RFP process.

I got a raise, a promotion, and another raise. Now I'll have a company car, a fancy title and a lot more work!

Did I mention camping season?

We've been so busy we don't know whether to wind our butt or scratch our watch. (Steel Magnolias!)

I'll try to stay in touch more. I do read the list and the emails every day, even if it's two minutes here and three minutes there. During the GC it was hard to stay connected - y'all monopolized the airwaves for a while.

I feel pressed for time every minute right now, but my wife and our weekends away are saving my sanity. Thank goodness for wonderful campgrounds, talking around the campfire, good food and great friends visiting us there.

Hugs to everybody!

No one has waited longer than The Moonrover.... His agent orange saga is worthy of a PBS mini-series... but true.

Yes the tow bar is hidden behind the lower portion of the grill with holes cut out of the grill next to lower fog lights
