Now you can claim it on your taxes.



Her parents had a 26' class C and all four of us were very comfortable in it.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

In the old days many of us made do with what we had. We cooked over an open fire, lived in tents or pop-ups, and did not have the luxury items we have today. Now I'm spoiled and want all the luxury items and like Earlene, roughing it is not having a Walmart nearby.

Full time for 2 or 4 in a 26' C could be done... right after I walk a tight rope across the Grand Canyon...

So glad to see that you found your mind again, bro. For a while there, I thought you'd lost it. Vegas in July and August?

Just in case you were wondering, parts of AZ are not 4G. Could get calls and text but no internet.

I've been busy chopping firewood for the GC@BC but they got all excited when I tryed to load up the wood! Petrified wood didn't look like it would burn good any way!



Spent the night on the corner in Winslow. AZ.

Corner of the WM lot, along with 6 other coaches!
Have landed in Williams for a few days.

Ha Dave where are you! Might want to meet up on North Rim!

More later, I hear the pool calling me!

Oow! Depends where we are at that time of the year but if we do we'll try and stay at the SKP's park in Holister, MO. Mucho cheaper and we're cheap skates. Most likely we will not be in that area at that time - we'll see.

Yes it is cheaper, might be there the weekend before or after, looking into it....
but this park has a stay 3 get 1 night free the month od september, free shuttle to Silver Dollar City, whuch has a 2 day for price of one day for military.... Larry has never been, and I havent in years... With the shuttle we can go back, take a nap and return... Lots of crafts.... Mainly just a getaway within our clise to Little Rock radius....

Wow. I haven't been to Silver Dollar City since 1976. I bet that area is really different now. Branson was just a little spot on the map that no one had heard of back then. I still remember going into that cave there.

Good to hear Di!! X2 on both health and travel. Just wish they could get that darn battery changed.

We have never been to Branson so one day maybe.
It was even tossed out as a GC possibility once. Hmmm.
