Wayne, does this sort of describe your recent travel day?

Let me say this about that... the engine sounds great at idle. When you were leaving I got a listen. Sounds strong and like new to me!

ZLarry pulls his bus right in front of our site and commences hooking up his JEEP! Well, not that much of a problem we just walked up to those staying behind and said our good bye, sorrily so.

Fast forward. We pull up by the office, eventually, to hook-up. I go in and tend to my business. The very nice lady asked, "Is that one of your group that just pulled out?" And I said, yes, that it was Larry Z....

Guess what that sucker did. He stuck me with his $116.24 electric bill.

Larry, didn't they tell you that you had to pay your electricity when you left? What were you going to do, stick Steve with the bill? I feel bad enough for Steve with him having to put up with you right across from you! That is why "I" picked up your excessive electric bill.

For crying out loud.

More to today's saga......

Oooooh.... Thank you Wayne..... Guess I owe you a dinner.... Lol... We totally thought they woukd just put it on the card..... Never been to a place that charged that much and added electricity cost....

The monthly rate looks good but with electric use and cold snap it could get expensive.

it wasn't bad... we were using our propane and the electric heater for the first couple of nights, as the heater is a pain because it needs a new thermostat... our electric bill wasn't much.


BTW... we made it ome safe and sound by around 8:30 PM.

My electric bill was a little less than $11.

Lead foot, Marty? Glad you made it home safely.

Is it April yet? Can't wait for GC1.2 and GC2. AND lots of mini-Cs in Florida and along the way. Long live the STMs!

Wow! What an eventful day on the rainbow yesterday! While some made it safely home or to the next planned stop, others were sneaking off w/o paying, doing a good deed, or suffering the attentions of a careless driver. Wayne, you know no good deed goes unpunished, don't you? Sheesh! I think your problem stems directly from Di and Larry, so really it's their fault. Really! 😈 And then there is the continuing saga of Don and Sandee's beautiful rig.

All good stories must have some excitement and tension, right? Couldn't we just do with a little less of all that?

As you will have seen by now, ours was one day of pure pleasure, out touring with Steve and Annie.

Our turn will come, I'm sure, to have one (or more) of "those" days, but yesterday was not one of them. It was a lovely day with good people. STMs, so of course!

Rumbles of thunder in Rockport this morning. Let's see what today brings. Best of luck to all on the rainbow. Hang tough! And we love all y'all!

Cheers!
