Groundhogs are as common around here as snow plows!! You don't even need a license to shoot them here.

Hey Jeff happy belated birthday! Glad it was a good one for you. Well Barb and I have been able to begin to formulate our travel plans for 2014 with some definite dates. Of course we are at the GC in April. In July we start a three month trip to San Diego then bounce around California working our way North to Seattle by mid August for hopefully a mini with Barb and Possum and whoever else we can get to join us. Then on to start September in Yellowstone which we have never done so we are excited for that. Then head South for Texas sometime in Late September to the home base. This is going to be our first big trip so we are all excited. Jenny will be tired by the time she brings us home so she will be in need of some TLC.

A lot of you have been to Yellowstone so any suggestions would be helpful and welcomed. Also we are going to Grand Canyon on the way to California so suggestions for campgrounds there will be welcomed.

Barb and I are still in our beginner stage as full timers and we haven't seen much of this country accept at 30,000 feet so we are newby explorers. We are gonna keep our plans very loose and flexible so we are in no hurry. If we land somewhere we really enjoy we will stay till we get tired of it and then move on. All suggestions accepted.

Is something here trying to access my pc? It didn't do it just now but it did on another one.
Thank you. For a minute there I thought it was just my computer. When I finish reading and posting mutated stuff, I'm going to restart it and see if that helps.

Happy Birthday Jeff! And Elizabeth, many ohhhmmmmmmms for you. Stay down and rest! you need to get over your pneumonia!

It's good to be back amongst friends. Oh and we had about 4" of snow our the last 3 days. YUCK!
Now Barb, it's about time you left chasing the doctor's around the hospital floors to the nurses, and coming back to your STM roots.

Happy to hear you are home. Now do the PT as it is given to you, no more, no less. IF they tell you 5 repetitions of an excercise, don't do more, it can hurt you.

Did they give you motion machines to move your knees when you sleep? That stupid contraption will keep you on your back for sure.

I wanted both done at the same time, but Dr. said insurance companies were stopping that practice. (reason at a later time). As someone stated, if you get one done, you will not go back for the other one. Woe is me, as it fits.

Oh! I only used the Oxy for the first two days. Then, about 1 hour before PT I'd pop one. Trust me!! Schedule your use of Oxy for about 1 hour before PT.

Are you having home PT or will you have to travel?

Herbie!

We been there done that! San Diego all the way to Whidby Island. So for specifics, email me.

When we left for home we also went to Yellowstone. We stayed at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park. Nice place, and only a 1/2 mile or so to get into the Park.

We left the PNW and eventually on I-90 and at US-287 we headed South. Nice scenic ride with no big surprises at that time. Takes you right into Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park area.

Ok. Here is where we stayed
Grand Canyon stayed at the Grand Canyon Trailer Village on the south rim. This was in November, so easy without reservations $35 fhu, didnt really see anything else nearby....

On anither trip
Yelliwstone stayed at Grant Village. No hookups, a little tight for 38'....
Then moved to Tetons, Flagg Ranch, only like 20 m south of Yelliwstone. Plenty of room fhu...

If you are doing n CA on way to Seattle, dont skip the Oregon Coast. We spent the whole month of July last year, moving each 4-5 nights... No reservations...
The best beach in mho, because they allow dogs.... Everywhere.....

Hi Wayne,

My doc says they gave up on using the passive motion machines, studies showed them ineffective. But, I can only sleep on my back anyway. I wish I could curl up in a fetal position, but it ain't happening right now.

Sena freaked out yesterday. Acted like I was going to eat her. Today is much better and she'll stay leashed to me until she decides I'm OK again. Monkeys don't like change. When she was about 9 months old, I came home with a perm and she wouldn't let me touch her. The cure was to wear her for 2 days until she settled down. I hope it doesn't take that long this time. Home Health will be out tomorrow to draw blood for the Coumidin levels. Sena won't let strangers touch me, so I'll have to cage her then.

It's good to hear about plans for the GC and mini-Cs making the news here. This will be an April to remember!

A lot of you have been to Yellowstone so any suggestions would be helpful and welcomed. Also we are going to Grand Canyon on the way to California so suggestions for campgrounds there will be welcomed.

We stayed in Williams AZ at the Grand Canyon Railway campground. We rode the train from Williams to the canyon. The train ride up and back was great and took us right to the entrance of the canyon. You can walk from the campground to the train or they have a shuttle that will pick you up and take you to the depot. One other thing we really like was the campground has a pet spa. Since we knew we would be gone all day we boarded Abbie while we were gone. The place was very clean (no smell) and they required current health records. We didn’t feel uncomfortable with Abbie staying there. Williams has a great downtown area and some good restaurants. We enjoyed the outdoor restaurants since the weather was great. Williams is about 35 miles west of Flagstaff.

We stayed in Island Park, ID at the Island Park Campground. Island Park is 28 miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The campground was OK, we were gone seeing the sights most of the time so the campground was mostly a palace to park. The hookups all worked but no Wi-Fi or cable. The campground is in the trees so the satellite may not work if it’s not portable. The campground is very close to the highway going to Yellowstone but there was no traffic noise at night. Some of the sites would be close maneuvering for a motorhome, we told the office staff what we were in and they put us in a site that wasn’t difficult to get in or out. The staff at the campground were helpful with directions and questions about the area sites. We were glad we stayed in Island Park after going into the town of West Yellowstone because it was really crowded and somewhat difficult to get around.

Wherever you stay have a great trip. If you have time drive on to the Grand Tetons while you are in the Yellowstone area.

Barb,
Glad you are back and healing.

Ginny, Jim and Abbie

Just remember if you follow his directions explicitly don't get on the ferry because you'll end up in the field behind us if you do. His lack of directing giving ability is only exceeded by his social graces.

Thanks for the Information we want to hit Williams and do the train ride. The steam locomotive they use there was the one that I would sometimes fire when it was a hauler at the Marquette and Huron Mountain Railroad in the Yooper part of Michigan. Do they allow pets on the train here like they do here in Port Alberni?

Arlene sprung me at about 2 and I finally made it to bed. Sena was a brat the whole time I was gone, but very glad to see me. Lily couldn't understand why she had to be leashed, but she is fond of walking on me. I'll probably let her stay with Arlene until my staples come out in another 8-9 days.

OK, I have 10 pages os ketsup so I better get to it.

I missed y'all!

I don't think pets are allowed on the train, at least we didn't see any on the train. I had been to canyon before and I thought the train ride was the best part of the trip. The conductor was in our car and gave us information about the train and the railways to the canyon.

Thanks to all who contributed suggestions for our trip. We definitely want to take the train ride to the canyon so we will probably stay in Williams. Our lab Molly is excited too!

Does the pet resort allow smoking? Molly likes to smoke her antler bone. LOL
