Di - I feel so fortunate. You - Larry - Wayne - Dave - all of you retired STMs have been excellent examples in how to be retired. I thank you all and Next month I turn 60. I am retired - married to the love of my life - and hitting the rainbow fat, dumb and happy. While I will try to lose some weight - it don't get no better than this.

Thanks again and

Weather report from Texarkana: Sunny (unlike yesterday!), light breeze, and temps in the upper 30s at sunup. Forty-six now, and like a cat, I'm soaking up solar gain in the front. First cuppa ... tea, not joe.

Steve, do you really have Temps in their upper 30s? Don't they object to having office space in the basement?

Looking at the atlas, we have friends at College Station, so we might go off-piste (Rt 59) to stage a brief visit. Conroe maybe.

Any suggestions for an overnight in that general area?

Morning all! It's another mutacious day. Good for mutating. Cheers!

Hiya Dwayne and Shara! No good deed goes unpunished, it is said. You've earned those aches, but also another star in your crown. Now it's time to be good to yourself ... and support Mr. Bengay and Mr. Lazyboy. while you're at it! 😜 Cheers!

Maps: Great entertainment! Ever heard of Telephone, TX? Point Blank? Cut hand? Tom Bean? Royalty? Or maybe Dime Box. All in TX. Some of them up in Steve & Annie's old stompin' grounds.

Back up the road aways, in Arkansas maybe, there was Braggadocio. Wonderful! Imagine yourself a small child learning to write your address. Or even to say it. I'd want to move!

May the force be with you Grand Potentate (RVM 2)....now your ready, set so GO!! The Rainbow awaits!!

Headin' out tomorrow, thanks for askin'. South side of the Twin Cities got 2" maybe 3"....I'm 20 miles north of the TCs and had 12+"....5 hrs of fun yesterday with the snow blower and shovel!! It is Minnesnowta and we got 12+" in May so I guess this is just a way of Mother Nature keepin' the aquafers full... And of course the cold air comes in behind the storm front...single digits for the next week! Glad I'll be in SoCal.

Steve and Annie. A while back I met a guy who drives a big Prevost with slides. He was a retired Polish electronic tech and claims he's the first of hopefully many retirees to arrive here in North America. His name is Alexander Graham Jaworski and he says he's the first Telephone Pole in the States.

Keep and eye out for him.

Sue,
There is a KOA (Earlene calls it a parking lot) in Montgomery. (19785 Texas 105, Montgomery, TX 77356 (800) 562-9750) We stopped for a night there to see friends in the Conroe area. They have a lot of amenities and the locations is fairly convenient to dining out facility, etc. College Station is 51 miles from that KOA. It will be about 12 miles off I-45 heading West. Highway 105 is a good highway but there will be stop lights along the way.

If you are coming in on US-59 head West on Hwy 105 and avoid I-45. I-45 is not that bad in that area. Either way will get you there.

Heading to Rockport from there I'd take I-45S to 288S, and in Angleton pick up Hwy 35S. More scenic and less stressful in my opinion. If you take the Google suggested route down Hwy 59 it is 231 miles, 3 hours 40 minutes. If you take 288 and hwt 35 it is 236 miles and 21 minutes longer. We'll be taking Hwy 35 once we get on the road. I have to get from here to 35 which I have done many a time down 2004 from Texas City.

Come close by and we can convoy!!

Sue, ask ZLarry about Houston traffic. I've been doing it so long it's not a bother to me. You do want to hit the Houston rush hour traffic after 9:00 a.m. Most of the city workers have to be at work by 9:00 a.m. and it just leaves the other idiots on the highway.

Rush hours: 7-9 a.m. 12-1 p.m. (Lunch), and 3 to 6 p.m., give or take a half hour in all situations. Here's the thing about Houston traffic. It is only a 15 minute difference during peak hours from point A to point B, UNLESS there is an accident that blocks the roadway, then it can be a snail pace and longer time from A to B.
