It was getting close in New England, but I don't think the NY'ers will have time to recondition me. Hope not. Hard enough to unerstan the NE'ers.

We bought a folding wagon last month and it made carrying the kayak to the lake much easier, and it's great for hauling firewood, tired grandkids and other sundry items.

You also might think of investing in a battery-powered foot pump. The one that comes with it wears me out even before we put the boat in the water.
Ahh, thanks for the tidbit of info...

Good to hear the North isn't taking over.

Harbor Duck - Hmmm - not nice - but we in the Air Force never got involved with you're Swabees and Ships Company squabbles. We had golf to play and happy hour to attend. to you both - but I'm glad I missed the boat.

Wow, haven't heard this jargon in 30 years! Love it! I was in trident Nuclear subs for 11 years, got to be Sonar Chief (E-7) best job I ever had! Never worked so little and got paid so much!

My apologies if any offense was taken by the Master Sargent!

A word of warning on your forthcoming train ride back to Williams. You should know that shortly after leaving GC, you will see alongside a bunch of horse riders wearing masks. Do not be afraid! These are the Cataract Creek gang and they will stop the train, board it and come through the cars demanding money. We heard later that they needed the cash to buy breakfast at McDonalds. I've sometimes wondered if any of them have been hurt in these shows by a passenger with CC as they do carry guns.

Also, at Williams, they put on a really good gunfight show with the local sheriff who, at one point in the confrontation, has to stop to take a cell phone call from his wife! All good fun. Enjoy.

PS Re elevation - you should try visiting Lhassa, Tibet, at 12,000 ft and climbing the 300 steps up to the Kompala palace. And then go up a further 2,000 ft and jump on a Yak.


Hey Martin I will be sure to watch for those pistol packin wanna be cowboys. Regarding Tibet, this fat boy wouldn't make it at that altitude unless I had an oxygen mask on the entire time. Last year we were in the Rocky Mountain National Park and we drove up to just over 11,000 feet and got out to take pics but we never made it all the way down the walkway. First it was July but up there it was about 50 degrees and the wind was blowing at least 30 mph and gusting above that so we couldn't stop shivering which made the breathing even more difficult in our shorts and tees. Nope this fat boy much prefers to stay at the lower elevations.

Meanwhile, a reply to Steve and Annie; "Hi" yourself! We don't really see us getting to Texas this year, but this is only August; stranger things have happened. We hope you are well. Just a note, we already had a domicile in Florida, so no, we didn't buy a place for the purpose. Jan still has kids in Clearwater, so we keep it as a home base. Actually, a base in the Texas area would give an easier opportunity for a wide-ranging field. For us, getting out to this part of the country is quite an excursion. You might want to explore setting up your base in the RGV area.

Anyway, howdy to all who may know us. Keep 'em rollin'!

Tom (with permission from Jan).


Tom we probably won't still be here Saturday cause we are meeting friends in Ruiadosa NM this weekend. We were in Vegas last week were you guys there then? Sorry we just missed ya cause a mini would definitely be in order. If your interested in a great show while there go see show at the Wynn called The Reve. Best show we ever saw in Vegas! We stayed at the Oasis in Vegas where are you guys at?

Just checking in. Last night we had a baby and momma bear at our site it was nice but we had to go back in because the baby was in front of us and the momma was behind us. So it was best we went inside. Hope all is good on the rainbow.

Wee-hooo! What an adventure! Maybe a tad more exciting than you would wish...but also a lot less exciting than it could have been. Discretion being the better part of valor and all that, you made the right decision. Whereabouts are you now?

Good to hear the rainbow is still at your feet. Any news on Shara's back? That new grandbaby? EFT for Dwayne? Curious minds, ya know.

Cheers!

Have no fear Martin, they all worked on good computer.

Sometimes .jsp files do not play well on an iPad but there are workarounds, same for "flash."

Yep! And when I was in Vietnam we used to love coming in from the field all grungy and go just inside the AFB gate to the "Dairy Queen" (soft serve ice cream.) The them song for the AF back then was "Up in to the air junior birdmen, up in to the air up side down."

Have no fear as everything here is in fun. I'm sure you have had a "ping" or two in your career. Now if you were army, I'd tell you what that stands for.

Now, for all y'all hanging around in the heat belt, we got up to 58 degrees this morning. High today will be 68 degrees. Weather has definitely been on our side this trip.

I must live right!

I believe Paul, Billy and Reno had as good a time at the FEGC@CL as we mutants did.

He says it was a rejuvenating adventure and has penned 3 new songs since the GC. If we get back to CL I'll be sure to get them lined up. He uses his mutant mug too.
