Wow Jeff - when you were explaining it on the phone today I didn't realize how close the slide out had come to digging itself into the grass. Bad enough as is - but could have been tragic... and with you under there / shutter to think...

But sounds like ya got it on the run... Note to self - when it rains for days - move to site with concrete pad.

Good luck Dwayne. Where were you when we talked to Shara Saturday morning? We talked about you. Were your ears burning?
I talk to a lawyer at least once a week. I have to. He calls his mother and I listen in and speak once in a while.

Steve, take a look at Ellsworth AFB. We stayed there and it was a nice jumping off spot for the attractions in the area.
