We're due in on the 14th, so will be up for a meal out. Good idea! Setup and happy hour first?

Di, where in South Padre are y'all coming from? I've looked at it in Google Earth recently. Looks kinda crowded.

I woukd even be glad to get a ham or pork roast or something for another time... Is your smoker electric? Pork does good in slow cooker too....

. What say?
I'll go to Walmart or Sams and by the prepared meals for 3.

I had promised a Pre-Thanksgiving Day Feast and Curiosity - to include a smoked Turkey and Goose - but I am open to letting you eat Sammiches and Ritz crackers.

Smoker: I don't have to do it but if the weather is nice - a smoker is a good place to gather. There will be a breeze in one direction or another - so you can keep out of the smoke Wayne..

Hey Sky_Boss - you reading Don...
Watching NCIS tonight - McGee came up with Rule 70... Don't stop digging until you reach bottom.
I don't have COPD, but Earlene my fuss at the smoke. Personally I just don't like the stuff anymore. It stop/stuff my nose up.

Thanks for the reminder. Blowing smoke is not something I want to inhale.

So yes - you really are ahead of me on what to do on "opening night". And it is getting dark earlier all the time.

I say we roll in as we can - and around dinner time - those with a hankering can go for dinner somewhere..

I know Marty may be arriving a day late and leaving a day or so early --- and I want her and Bob to be in our Pre-Thanksgiving Day Feast...
Hi Ho Marty - when do you come in...??? Depart???

Friday 11/14 - let's go out for dinner somewhere - nothing fancy - whoever is there and wants to...

Saturday 11/15 - Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Sunday 11/16 - Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Monday 11/17 - Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Tuesday 11/18 - Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Wednesday 11/19 -Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Thursday 11/20 - Let's go out for dinner somewhere

Friday 11/21 - we move to Lagoons in Rockport - You go out for dinner somewhere, as we'll be headed to Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX

Quote and Fill in ideas or places and suggestions.

Another thing. Bob will be flying one day - and offering rides to those under a certain weight with a certain attitude and grit!

I can leave my shoes and stuff in my pant pockets on the ground and I'll be under 250. Herb on the other hand....well...never mind.

I'm guessing we will get there the 15th, Sat. There is room for wiggles in leaving...but my reservation ends the 20 or 21, don't quite remember.
See above, especially about Herb.

But I thought I,d help in the planning!
How about reveille at 0600 daily.

Just trying to be helpful. lol
Tim, send me your phone number.

I believe a Walmart museum would have aisles too narrow to pass an oncoming shopper, and shelves stocked with precarious ceiling high stacks of unrelated merchandise.

Just remember to remind Bob, just before he takes you up as a passenger, that, he can't run out of Altitude, airspeed and ideas all at the same time.

Wayne I never saw the day I hit 250, midgets don't get that heavy. Now Humpty Dumpty like you will have to pass on the ride offer cause you can't strip down to you skivvies and get close to that number.

It does come apart. It is in garage - will take pics. It is getting more problematic - as we try to get down to what we really want with us. But you're right - the smoker is here to stay. It's sort of a hobby - and when you have smoked meats you always have friends with beer. Also - ever eat bbq out. They price it like gold bricks. It's is always cheaper to cook than eat out. And smoking and grilling are 2 good reasons to go RVing! ! :-)

Your reply in Steves list about eating out every night did not show up.... Did E hack your rv2 again....
It would not bother me at all..... But will participate in prethanksgiving....

Also just a thought.... Pizza night? Delivery, digorno, or diwizi..... I would do dough, each bring toppings and grill them?

SERIOUSLY. lets KISS.... This is a vacation for me, so lite cooking, request....

Sue, we are staying at Isla Blanca County Park. Just made reservations last week and got a prime site.... We might not like it, but we have never been. So are giving it a try.... Will be there the week before Rockport, then will be at Galveston the week after....

Ok enough chatter from me on this subject....












Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

Dang! I missed all the fun last night! We're at a campground in Vegas and even using my Verizon MiFi I couldn't get on the Internet.

Congrats, Larry!

Wave hi toward the casinos and you might catch my son there. Don't bother in the mornings, though; he's a night owl.

Staying a day or two?

Chuck - are you telling me that with the grandest and longest of rigs there is - pulling a pickup - you need a roof carrier for a little Ole smoker... lol. You must be carrying a lot bacon in yer bays. Tim need not carry bacon cause hogs run wild in his home town.

Woo Pig Sooie!
