I've decided I don't like daylight savings time. We've been in Arizona until the last few days and I finally figured out why I've been so impatient lately with Sena. The brat is staying up too late because her clock is set to the dusk to dawn sleep schedule. She was going to sleep an hour earlier because Arizona does not observe DST. With dusk coming an hour later here in Utah, she stays up too late.

I'm sure we will adapt in a week or so -- if she survives that long I just wish every state was on the same schedule.

What to do? Oh, what a quandary!
RVM Quest: are there any STMs that are from the State that has more RVMs from one State than any other that has an idea of the best season and place for a GC in that State that has more RVMs from one State than any other?
Hmmmmm......
Hint: starts with a "T"

But Dave! You can't have one in the Springtime because of HAIL! and tornados, or from August thru October because of hurricanes in the Gulf that often send nasty weather all the way to the north side and it gets too darn cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. I think that just leaves May.

You are welcome, no problem at all. At least you are back on the road, at some point you can get the parameters straightened out.

Woke up early can't sleep....

I'm going to Disney....

Thanks all for the thoughts.

Hi Ken, HI Carl

Pictures fourth coming.

Well, after hear so many good things about Palo Duro, I'm hoping someone will step up to be the wagonmaster for TFETGC
Perhaps GCs will be bigger in Texus?

Palo Dura was a one time visit for us. I'm sure the Texans are proud of it but I've been there and not enough to want to go back. Don't think it's full hook up, we stayed in small RV park just outside of park. San Antonio, Galveston heck Texas City even sounds better to me!

Wonder how many extension cords we can plug in at Mr a Rounds?

And what may I ask is wrong with 58 years? We only have 3 years left to get there - should I go - (Don't say Earlene shouldn't)

Just wondering and I know Wayne will dispute the figure.

I think Earlene is a saint!!!
Dang! When you and I are together it is all me, but when you get separated by a few thousand miles - it's all about Earlene. I'm tellin' Denise about you two.

Palo Duro doesn't have the facilities that most want. Oasis RV park 30 miles away may have a clubhouse.

Tim, first come first serve on my 50 amp in a sloping driveway. I determine who is first. Texas City free dump station is about 2 miles away. Water can be taken from my neighbor's house keeping my cost to just electric (for you it's double.)

There are many campgrounds around this area but I'm not real sure which would have some facilities for us to all gather in. But if a determination is made to visit this area for a GC - we'll do some reconnaissance.

In a couple of Denise and I would be willing to return to the site where we held the GC in Tucson if we had the money required at the time. The campground crew there bent over backwards to give us our way and Papa Steve and his lovely wife Maryanne had us organized to a "T."

Understanding the very inexpensive camping opportunities afforded us by your wonderful governments while we travel the only added daily cost is our fuel. We learned even more this trip to value friendships ahead of creature comforts and staying in boon dock locations is easily done if you can arrange to cleanse the campers system weekly or biweekly.

As an aside to Wayne; How far do the jacks have to extend to level a 30 coach when parked in your driveway?
