BARB: And what is wrong with RR tracks, that's the only way to go railfaning. Description: Railfaning - to go see how prototype railroads work and to get ideas for modeling.
One can spend as much money on a model RR as a MH and it doesn't get hit by a car or need new tires, just a new model locomotive.

.
RR Tracks are what they are there for and there's no more beautiful sound than a locomotive on a speeding freight blowing a crossing, especially where it echos. Actually there is a better sound and it requires a Steam Locomotive doing the same thing.

It's a nice area with great weather and tons of Wineries on the Canadian side. (A block away)
Yup but I was thinking it would be mucho betterer if Barb didn't have to monkey around at the border. We could use this site as the Canadian Overflow area.

I just want to tell you this H1N1 - Swine Flu is nothing to fool with. In less than 48 hours I went from feeling fine to being unable to breath - along with the other wonderful symptoms. I can't even say that I am any better having started my meds at 5:30 last night. Shortness of breath - hacking - coughing - head and body aches, etc.

Basically the inhaler, Tamilflu ibuprofen, and codeine cough syrup amount to taking several of the Hot Buttered Rums Les prescribes. Doesn't really cure anything. Just knocks you out so you don't exert yourself or feel the pain. I'm sure I will be fine and thank you all for your kind words. Honestly though - I have never been scared by an illness before. If you think you're getting the flu - get to the doctor fast. I believe 9 people in North Texas did not and they are no longer with us.

Bacon is Awesome - Swine Flu is Awful

I will check in now and then, but it is too much effort to post.
Hey old impotentant one, yawll take care of yourself and do what Annie tells yuh to do.

Perhaps somewhere further west would work better since Seattle was mentioned as a destination? Here's a list of State parks with hook-ups.

Healing vibes to Steve! It's a baaaad winter. Had to drive down to Toronto for a doctor's appt. for daughter today. Left on Saturday to dodge a major storm going across our path on Sunday and crept quietly back northward today just ahead of the next system, trying not to rouse the storm dragon! Almost didn't set out today due to the dire weather pedictions of blizzard and deadly wind chills, etc. but it was clear sailing pretty much all the way, just in time. The route is often hit by squalls off Lake Huron/Georgian Bay, so it is always a crap shoot. We have the most snow that I have seen in the 5 years since we moved north, it reminds me of the winters of my childhood in Quebec. Mon Pays, c'est hiver. (Song by French folksinger Gilles Vigneault, My Country, it's Winter.)
http://lyricstranslate.com
French
Mon pays

Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver
Mon jardin ce n'est pas un jardin, c'est la plaine
Mon chemin ce n'est pas un chemin, c'est la neige
Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver

Dans la blanche cérémonie
Où la neige au vent se marie
Dans ce pays de poudrerie
Mon père a fait bâtir maison
Et je m'en vais être fidèle
A sa manière, à son modèle
La chambre d'amis sera telle
Qu'on viendra des autres saisons
Pour se bâtir à côté d'elle

Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver
Mon refrain ce n'est pas un refrain, c'est rafale
Ma maison ce n'est pas ma maison, c'est froidure
Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver

De mon grand pays solitaire
Je crie avant que de me taire
A tous les hommes de la terre
Ma maison c'est votre maison
Entre mes quatre murs de glace
Je mets mon temps et mon espace
A préparer le feu, la place
Pour les humains de l'horizon
Et les humains sont de ma race

Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver
Mon jardin ce n'est pas un jardin, c'est la plaine
Mon chemin ce n'est pas un chemin, c'est la neige
Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver

Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'envers
D'un pays qui n'était ni pays ni patrie
Ma chanson ce n'est pas une chanson, c'est ma vie
C'est pour toi que je veux posséder mes hivers



English
My Country

My country is not a country, it's the winter
My garden is not a garden, it's the plains
My path is not a path, it's the snow
My country is not a country, it's the winter

In the white ceremony
Where the snow marries the wind
In this land of blowing snow
My father had a house built
And I will be faithful
To his ways, to his example
The guest room will be such
That they will come season after season
To build themselves next to it

My country is not a country, it's the winter
My chorus is not a chorus, it's a gust of wind
My house is not my house, it's the cold
My country is not a country, it's the winter

About my solitary country
I cry out before I am silenced
To all men on earth
My home is your home
Within my four walls of ice
I put my time and my space
To prepare the fire, the place
For the people on the horizon
And the people are of my race

My country is not a country, it's the winter
My garden is not a garden, it's the plains
My path is not a path, it's the snow
My country is not a country, it's the winter

My country is not a country, it's the opposite
Of a country that was neither land nor homeland
My song is not a song, it's my life
It's for you that I want to own my winters

With ya there.

Back in MN, they complain about -18.
It is those under 40 that did not see what WE did:
Changing the oil. In the driveway. At -30. Because it was simply time for it to be done.
Cold enough to require rocking the car back and forth until the differential finally made one full turn, so I could go to work.

Now, they close schools? I had 1 snow day in 12 years during periods of below zero that stretched for 3 weeks, and snow that would make todays wimpy stuff look like a flurry.

I could go on, you STMs. And it is all gospel true. I will now stand down from pool-side.

Yes, Dave and I had to walk to school 5 miles -- up hill, but only after my horse died. LOL, we had it much tougher in terms of physical comfort, but much easier emotionally. So many more issues today. I'm just glad my kid is already raised. If I had any grand kids I'd think long and hard about homeschool. Issues there as well.

It's just a different world and thankfully we are still able to figure out enough of it to somewhat function. Today's world is the product of the young, for the young. We are merely tolerated for our credit ratings and retirement income.

Sad, but true.

Yep. You are correct.

But it was -40, 3-feet of snow, 5 miles, and uphill BOTH WAYS!

Back in my day, and probably for you and many other RVMs, we had school, and also "schooling" at home that was just a part of family life. I am so shocked at how level-headed and worldly my grandkids are. They will make it!

And we are appreciated because we spend money, and tollerated because we are STMs.

I think that makes us the comic relief charge card.

My dear fellow STMs, we need to send more ohhhmmm ohhhhmmm healing ohmmmmms to all our sick mutants and families. I was just barely over pneumonia, and now the whole clan has a cold.

I can only hope the bitter cold kills off all the germs. Good golly it's cold outside -the dachshunds think this is entirely unreasonable. Their poor tummys rub in the cold, frozen grass.

Yes. Nuff crud and nasty stuff on our RVMs and kin already.

BTW, Steve is properly chemicaled and crashed out, but showing signs of recovery. Ooooohhhmmms in his direction would not hurt a bit, aye?

Ooopoooohhhhhmmmms to all!!!!

Hay, I had a dachshund. High school, mid 60's. They are very, smart, funny, tricksters, and very close to the ground.
Mine ran with the terrier next door for hours in tall grass. The next few days, he layed on the couch, tummy up, and chose to go out to pee only when undelayable. And he was cute even then.

Miss my Schroeder.
