Wakarusa. First time there, so will be following the instructions Kim provided to the letter. Don't know how long I will be there. The list isn't long, just have not had any luck with local dealers getting stuff done right.

Launching first of Aug., mas o menos. Can't wait, but there's so much to be done! Heat & rain have postponed much of what needs doing on the homestead, & then, of course, there is loading of the rig. That's the fun part, no?

Power & water provided, dump station handy. Nearby is The Corner Cafe, open all day. It's a regular stop for us. There's Raymond's for "family dining", but we never find it open when we need it. Plenty of fast food places around.

All the best for a smooth, easy time. We don't use the dealer, either, but then ours is in Elkhart anyway. Hardly any difference between going there or to Wakarusa.

Cheers!

I challenge you to post pics of lobstah in as many ways as possible. Fresh, on a boat, with buttah, with eggs and bacon, lobstah roll, sushi lobstah, etc.

And Timster - Annie wants to know if Mary brought her boots.
She's got them and ready for clams!

Finding a little hiccup in our plans, had designed a couple of flex days before PEI and now I'm trying to make reservations on a weekend! We may be Wallydocking more than planned Just adds to the adventure! Get ready Dave we be a comeing!

Same here Carl. We have motor home clothes and home clothes (we might add to them a little if jaunt is 10 days instead of 7). Might pack 3 nice shirts to impress the mutants. Which may not work out because it may be the same 3 shirts we packed special in Tucson or CL or Bryce. LOL

Bottom line is that we don't have a large caravan of pack animals moving between S & B and the curbside MH. LOL

Okay you mutants. So you haven't been impressed with my 3 special shirts.

Well not sure if impressed is the proper moniker but I was going to ask about borrowing the red one.
Does that count?

Hope you find good spots to camp...

And, if you want some of my return routing, I use the technique I call the (Pardon my "French") Bon-Chance method... At an intersection, I flip a coin...

I see some sights I would never imagine...

BTW, I have been out of touch cuz I just got Ann out of the hospital AGAIN!

She is doing very well & super charged after her "Oil Change & Battery Charge".. IE fluids & Anti-biotics for Kidney & Urinary tract infection..

She is 99% packed & ready for a launch Monday... See you in New Brunswick, probably a late arrival... I hope they save me a spot, but you know our "Micro-RV" could fit in anywhere EZ... Almost the size of your toad..

Omms for Ann to stay well this trip! But I understand her idea... not going to let something non contagious keep me from loving the life I want to lead...Sometimes, lack of energy stops me though, since I usually do most of the prep work on getting Honey ready to go except for the engine stuff...and the generator. ( too heavy to lift, and still in the shop) oh, and Bob insists on packing his own clothes and toiletries...I suppose he'd be worried what sort of stange mutant clothes I'd pack...LOL!
