Outside - they do have Hookahs... I'm still - and forever forward a non smoker. Especially after that hit off your electric smoke delivery device. Seems like I fell down after 1 puff.

Hi everyone. I've been REALLY busy working for the last month, but I am headed to Cape May for a week right now. Did I miss anything?

Nope. But we missed you.

Deep in the dark recesses of our master bedroom closet lie many a treasure and memory. What will survive the cut - what will find its way to the dustbin of time?

The decision has been made - clothes the last size down (or more LOL) are out. When the weight comes off I will get new clothes.

Shoes - only one pair of black dress shoes will ever be needed. Since a new pair was bought for the wedding - they win.

Another sip or two of coffee and into the breach I go.... preparing to go full time is so much fun! Just ask Annie... she is once again dancing circles around me... 😃

I felt that pain, Steve.
You will do fine, but may rue the moment when your saved choices may need further culling. EEK!
BTDT, and best of luck, oh Grand Potentate.

I fully expect to toss things we take - it's the things we toss and then discover we need that concern me. Oh well - that's what $$ are for...

They are probably waiting for us at home. Thank you for sending them.

We are on the Rainbow! We have been out every weekend since April 1, with as many long weekends as possible.

We won't be out next weekend, as Serenity is going in for a new microwave, replaced under warranty. Then we're packing for the rally.

I am also having problems with my city water fitting, but may replace that myself. The dealer wants $65 in labor to replace a $5 fitting. Any recommendations, Muteys? I could buy the part and replace it at the rally if someone could guide me. There are three screws holding it in, but I don't know what is behind that.

The journey continues...

Ah grasshoppers.

The effects of altitude and temperature. (Be aware that this applies to RV tires as well as inflatable beds.

For every 1000 feet of altitude change there is a 0.48 pound difference in air pressure.
For every 10 degrees of temperature change there is a 2% difference in air pressure

So let us assume that you set your bed at 60 psi (Annie could set her's higher as she is not as heavy as..... well, you know)
There would be a 2.4 psi difference (increase) between Sea Level and 5000 feet
Also, let us assume that the temperature difference is 10 degrees lower. So that would be a 1.2 psi drop. My math says that the difference would total 1.2 psi so now the bed would be at 61.2 psi. Not a heck of a lot of change to be fidgeting with buttons.

The above scientific discussion does not take into account any hot air visiting from Arkansas, nor any internal thermostat temperature settings that may make the temperature to be rather stable, nor any hot air being verbally expelled by occupants of other States or permanent occupants, Annie excluded.

^^^ Wayne - too early for math today - just cleared 4 large bags and stack of shoe boxes 6 feet tall for disposal. Another bag for charity. A refresh on coffee and I'm going back in...

As for the Sleep Number - it's fairly quick to let the air down to next to nuthin - so when going up will just let it out. It firms up just as quickly. Better safe than sorry.

Edit - I have hypoxia after reading your post Wayne. I took Aerospace Physiology in college in 1978. Put me to sleep then too.

To early! How do you think I felt doing math this early in the morning. Sheesh!

just remember to use te fudge factor with the RV Tires and don't eat fudge, or crackers, if sleeping on an air bed. I'll explain the first if necessary or asked for.
