Mel

Hey, Mel! X2 on the happy anniversaries and such. Like you, I cannot keep up! Rainbow riding has priority right now ✌️👏👍

Yeah, get that RV and let's get together and mini-C so much that folks get envious!

You better not EVER drive a class A. Nonono!
When I drove my 1st A after a decade with a C, I had synapses firing like fireworks. All of the positives about the handling, visibility and maneuverability of an A were TRUE! I damage stuff much less now with my 42 A than I did with my 23 C.
When you test drive a C, do a same length A. Well, maybe you better not. 😉
The idea of the RV driving course is wise in any case, as is reading the CDL training manual.

We are now in Woodland Park, CO at Diamond Campground. $17/nite for 5 nites with PA rates, and a really fine place. Pics later.
May extend a bit here and then go straight to Moab UT. Red wants to get dirty!

Later, STMs!

Congratulations to you both. One of you had to put up with the other one all these years, just like I have had to put up with Earlene for 53 years.

Happy anniversary.

I'll be the primary driver, but there may be times when she has to drive and I want her to be comfortable doing it. So, we'll stick with looking for a 29'--32' Class C mini mh. [...]

Mel, there are a lot of small Class-A's out there. Example: 2014 ACE Class A Motorhome Floor Plans (Best Class A & C RV). Just do a search on the words, 'small Class a motorhomes'

Herb, Freightliner pulls the lanyards every year when i have the annual maintenance.

Now for today's trip: Had the air thingy again. dropped to 100 psi and each time I used the brakes it dropped a little more. Stopped for fuel and food, restarted and it built up to 125 pounds. Stayed that way for the remainder of the trip. I'm going to go and talk to the people at the local Freightliner tomorrow.

My last contact from Jeanie was this pic of the Galveston Pizza place I suggested she try. I went there when they first opened on late 60 ' s and early 70's. It was great back then...

Been a tense couple days. Sandee's mom is in the hospital with several issues. Yesterday was looking real bad. Late in the day she made a nice recovery and is doing "OK" for now. It ain't over but it is still of great concern to us.

We are also REALLY MISSING our coach. It feels strange to be in a S&B after nearly 18 months of FT living. Looking forward to the work getting done.

Here is a "before video" of our coach.

Annie never got a call back from Sandee today so we assumed all continued on the upswing...
