Di and Larry, we will probably catch up with you on Friday.

Kate says hi.

Pictures to come ...
Those Maritimers are racing to the border today, so we have to get out the checkered flags. (Or the skull & crossbones flags, maybe. Rum drinks in the offing.)

So glad you're having a good time, but we miss y'all here, too. Waiting for those pics!

Tim, the Hussey's store has 3 floors & 3,000 sq. ft. of retail space. My GSD (step daughter) says it would be good for a shotgun wedding. Wish I'd thought of that!

I went across this center suspension bridge, first one I think I ever went over with that type of construction. Was different.

We know exactly where you are. The city park in Essexville. It used to be $17 a night.

We lived in Bay City for 22 years. I taught school on the west side. Mary Ann worked for Dow Chemical in Midland. Still lots of friends in the area.

Travel easy.

So, eventually we'll be on our way. Plan to head towards Arizona this winter, will be too late for the Texas GC unfortunately.

If I sound tired, we had the GK's over this afternoon, 5 & 7 years old and both very energetic, they just HAD to spend time in the MH.
Congrats Dave and Carol! One step closer to true freedom. It's great out here on the fulltime Rainbow.

Yep! You set up that store in Arkansas and all those related to each other will be flocking to the store for that wedding dress.

(You knew that was coming - hey I though you were giving me a rest.)

Y'all right coasters are having way too much fun. But that's OK 'cuz next week the left coast will be rocked off it's foundation when Dennis, Denise, Wayne, Earlene, Sena and I meet in Oak Harbor, WA. There's room for more RVMs to join us.

Bay City historical homes are awesome. Going sightseeing soon. And nice park. You are correct

Yep. Speaking of Bay City. Had to extend a week. Gear box broken in a slide. Sending new part. But will stay here at FHU to get er done. But at rates cheaper than state park. Ok

Mel. We will not be up there on the 19th. Here till 25th

Still in warranty. Thats the good news.

I have not heard a concession speech from Tim or Dave yet, so stay tuned at 10.

I will say this, we stopped for a large lunch & Walmart... Then Tim came in as I finished registering - then Dave came in as I returned to office for laundry quarters...

In all fairness, I begged for the "Senior Citizen" head start...
