Then, had to go to the dentist today. Upper chopper got a split in it. Yes, I wear a falsie. I'll have it back tomorrow at the cost of $400+ some change. I did not know that I would be getting them back that early.

However, tonight we went to the Outback Steak House in Baytown, TX. It was a mini-mini-curiosity with me, Earlene, Jeannie, and Dave indulging in steaks. No bacon - Hmmm, I'll have to fuss at OSH to put that on their menu. I know it didn't happen if there are no pictures but a picture is coming from Jeannie when she gets home. We only had about 45-50 miles and they had over 90 miles. Fair as far as I'm concerned.

Tomorrow we pick up the MH out of storage and start loading. DS #2 and wife will be staying at the house while we are gone. We are hoping to be out of here by Friday and our first stop will be at Jeannie and Dave's pad, literally.

So there is some catch-up.

Dennis, if I'm not amusing you with posts, it's because were busy. I'll catch up again when we are on the road...but then...maybe night time I can throw some words of wisdom your way. Heaven knows you need them.

p.s., don't worry about the teeth, I have an extra pair and they did the steak proud. Pays to be prepared.
Kinda reminds me of the story about the two old folks at a fancy restaurant and only the woman is eating. The old guy was being very patient watching his wife eat and when asked why he wasn't eating he replied that it wasn't his turn. A nearby diner heard and offered to pay for his mean if that was the problem. The old guy said "No we have the money, I'm just waiting for my turn to use the teeth."

Well new England is not cheap camp ground $750 a month tolls to get here $289 gas is $4.11 for regular unleaded. Smokes are $8.75 a pack. What is going on up here no wonder everyone is mad up here and to top it off most jobs up here pay the same as down south.

Out east here everything related to camping is always much more. The Season is much Shorter. The only thing cheap is gas in the Carolina's and Georgia.

How did you know? I'm staying at my brother's house, and he's cheaper than me so I'll have to take him/them out for a few meals.

I spent the first 18 years of my life there, but it was an accident of birth.

It has always been more expensive the many other states. Residents named it Taxachussets for Massachusetts. We will be in the Central part the state and I can gurantee you that there isn't a campground in that area that I would stay in. Not because of price, but because I have visited them and they are not suitable under our requirements. They give new meaning to the word "Trash."

Yep! Prices are high also. As stated, they are so seasonal they have to make their fortune between May and October. (Sometimes earlier and later, but not often.)

Hey, where are ya'll? When you leaving that area and where are you going?

Did you get my PM?

My mutant friends...I can't go into any details but Sandee and I needs some good karma sent our way. Sandee and I celebrated our 24th anniversary yesterday and that was wonderful but other family issues cropped up and are weighing heavily on us.

I'm not trying to be mysterious but we are not in a position to say more at this time. Let's just say that perhaps we are in the right place at the right time and can improve the situation we landed in. Never the less, we are in a most stressful situation. We didn't see that one coming and are still trying to sort it all out on what we need to do next.

Thanks for your support. It sucks when there is a crack in the rainbow.
