That must make some massive roller coasters for you to ride! Pretty to watch from shore, though. I hadn't thought about being too close to shore since that isn't one of our problems in the Everglades or the Gulf shore bays, but it sounds scary enough. Good thing you know how to make yourself safe!

When we encounter wakes from boats whose drivers don't have the courtesy to slow down, we face into them like you're supposed to, of course, and ride them out. I love them, but am nervous at the same time. Sorta like the roller coaster!

Cheers!
Sue

The new recliner also allowed us to re-arange Gunny & Thor's crates and really opened up the isle between the slides. That was an added bonus and it also probably reduced coach weight by about 100#, mostly off my front axle.



We are now sitting in the parking area of Spartan Motors in Charlotte, MI after getting in yesterday afternoon. We have our annual service along with a list of things to have done over the next few days. New shocks, find out why I my right tag wheel is off the ground when on jacks, and a few other odds n ends.



We hope to connect with Jeff & Marcia some time today before they leave town. I also have a few things I want to get done today. I still need to put some wire loom over the new wires I ran for my headlight replacement project and catch up on emails with friends and family.



It's looking to be a great day.

So glad you're feeling better! You have so much planned that I figure you must be almost up to par again.

Cheers!
Sue

Afternoon Muteys!

Well the dog days of summer have finally settled on North Texas. It's 95 degrees and the humidity is stifling . Praying we can get the Moho in the shop tomorrow and get it back in time to pull out as planned next weekend. In the meantime it's to dang hot to stick my nose out so I will sit in front of the tube and channel surf and read what all you rainbow explorers are doing. Enjoy your day Muteys!

Bacon Sushi! Link below:

http://fastpaleo.com/recipe/bacon-sushi/

Just found this recipe online and haven't tried it yet. Put anything you want into it. This one has asparagus, cucumber, and avocado.

Right now I'm trying out a GF (Paleo, actually) peach/blueberry crisp. One thing at a time! Will let you know how that goes. It was super-easy to make.

Mmmm!

Charleston, SC now, Cherry Point next week, Williamsburg, VA the week after, then maybe to Fort Mead and Lancaster PA - then to New England.

Charleston is a great town. We were there in May. Really enjoy the Shrimp & Grits at Fleet Landing restaurant.

The "Great Crosscountry Adventure"

To remind some of you and tell some of you for the first time, Mary Ann and I are taking 2 of our grandkids to Sedona, Grand Canyon, 4 Corners, Dolores, CO, Durango, CO, and Pike's Peak.

Day 1 - - Indiana to Springfield, MO
Day 2 - - Springfield, MO to close to Elk City, OK
Day 3 - - Elk City, OK to Albuequerque, NM
Tomorrow - - Albuequerque, NM to Williams, AZ

The kids (14 YO Grace and 8 YO Dru) are doing quite well. Full of questions and expectations. Pretty impressed with the panhandle area and so far in NM (especially the mountains near Albuequerque).

More later - - - I couldn't resist posting the pictures of my 8 YO "navigator". Photo taken on day 1, What a stitch !!

From one pawpaw to another that's awesome! We took two granddaughters to Disneyworld last year. Their first time in RV and first time to Disney and they still talk about it! That's what it's all about pawpaw so hats off to you guys.
