I have been thinking of getting a sit on type kayak also... but the kind that fits like a jigsaw so it can fit 1 or 2 folks... it comes in 3 hard plastic molded pieces so it would be easier to manage for just me or find places to store since our RV doesn't have a basement or those storage lockers outside like the big A type RVs.

None of us can call what we do roughing it anyways. We call it "Glamping".
Les, Dennis (possum) said that beauty shops would not help you, so you will not miss one for not being there.

Thanks Marty....
There is no food outside, no bird feeders, but we will try leaving the spotlights on a few nights....

After reading on yahoo from Sue and Barb, i Think i am going with a sit in Ascent D10 from BassPro..... But will go and sit in one and see.
Saw those modular ones... Those are really neat.....

Howdy Muteys!
Been absent for a few days gettin ready for our summer trip. Tim, I've been reading your posts bout spending money on the coach and how much fun it is. I feel your pain buddy.

Took Jenny in to CW for full service and on the way the engine overheats! Buzzer on and wondering what's going on so I stop at a station and shut it off. Upon inspection the reservoir is bone dry. So I go inside and purchase two gal. of coolant and it swallows it up. Back for two more gallons and it swallows that up too! Now I'm scratching my head wondering where all the coolant went. Sooooo, back for a third time for two more gal. and finally the reservoir fills up. So I crank up the engine and go back to see if there is a leak somewhere. Sure enough a steady drip coming out the bottom off the engine. Now I'm thinkin this can't be good. Leak isn't around the radiator but further back. When I get up to CW and it's up on the rack, I see the steady drip on the driver side of the block at the bottom of the engine where a plate is bolted on the side. I'm hoping it's just a bad seal. Have to try and get it in the shop somewhere on Monday because this boat is supposed to be in Panama City Beach by Sunday July 6th or we are gonna have an upset grand daughter and grandparents. Oh the joys of full timing.

^^^ Herb - keep us in the loop on loosing fluids. That's not a good thing... Sorry to hear of that. Hopefully nothing serious and you'll be on schedule.

Just remember - it's all part of the journey! Good to hear from you. I've missed your morning / evening mutey moments.

I'd be interested to know the statistics on safety testing of Jeeps and what their crash survival potential is.

We are headed East (NE) also, so how far East do you plan on going?
Mary seems to be feeling better now that I've got most of the Discovery loaded! We are headed to meet up with family tomorrow and not sure yet of our departure date for our eastward migration.

Working on a plan that include a stop in AL to see gran dauther, the Irv2 rally in Sept, (Myrtle Beach) and Al again to await arrival of newest grand son. Everything else is yet to be planned.

Diane, just an opinion on a kyake. If your thinking of doing any white water I'd go enclosed. For calm water the open tops are very handy to get on and off and you can stay amazingly dry on them. I've used the sit on top to duck hunt. Climbing on and off of them in chest waders and freezing cold water was tricky at first but you get the hang of it pretty quick. I do have friends that do the spring river on a sit on top but personally I would want an enclosed one to better adjust my descent using my hips.

And of course wrapped in bacon. Unlike the halves we made at the GC stuffed with ground beef and sharp Cheddar cheese. For a little appetizer with some cab, maybe a martini later. Supper will be homemade chicken club pie. Like a club sandwich in a pie with chicken, ham, bacon and cheese, topped with lettuce and tomato. A first for us.

Keep us posted on travel. We are heading out next weekend to VA for 4 nights (one of those Bass Pro Shop Promotions) then to OH for the following weekend to meet up with one of DW's HS friends. Sold one of our 4 wheelers today, so the list is getting smaller of 'stuff' to go.

Well, we'll be crossing paths but at a different time and just going through Myrtle Beach. Stay safe, stay well.

Herb,
Sorry to hear of the leak. Just remember that what you put in the radiator is most likely not the approved coolant, most likely. When they fix it make sure they drane and flush and put in the proper coolant. Ask for an SCA test. Check the book on what the percentage is supposed to be.
