With our new mode of traveling we still do not have a dishwasher or washer/dryer and still we don't miss them. Actually the Bounder has much more than we ever did on our boat, more and larger tv's, satellite dish, more space (lots more). This is luxury living for us. In our adventures we enjoyed the people, local foods and culture, I don't think that will change traveling domestically. We thrive on adventure and while we don't expect big waves or pirates on this next adventure we do hope the journey is just as exciting. And yes, we affirm that the Journey is the Destination

HELLO #70.... Welcome to the group... Lol.... Nap time for me, now that "the Chew" is over..... My fav tv show.....

Convoy?

OK...I know this is a tad early but here is what I think is brewing.

I think that Steve and I will look at an early departure out of the Plano, TX area on the 23rd. I'm thinking 8 am would be a good start.

Jim is leaving the Paris, TX area the same morning.

We will look at joining up near New Boston late morning. That is a little over an hour for Jim and about 2+15 for Steve and I. From there it is somewhere between 2 and 3 hours to CL. Getting there by 3 would allow us to get set up and give Tim a hand in prep work.

Herb, are you going and how does that fit into your plans? Depending on where you park, it looks like it adds 1 hour for you to get to Plano and then points beyond.

Any one else?

Hey There !!!

Marcia and I will be in or near Frisco, TX and would be happy to tag along for the convoy, maybe a mini curiosity also before the main event. Let me know what else y' all are planning.

Cheers !!!

The staples are gone!

With no thanks to Dunner's offer of his staple remover, the office type, the staples came out this morning. I no longer feel like I have zippers on my knee caps.

Today marks 2 weeks since surgery and I feel as if I've turned the corner on pain control and walking ability. I'm down to using just one forearm crutch for balance and I no longer wince when I stand. One more visit to the orthopedic surgeon in a month and then I'm done with him.

I still have a lot of hard rehab to do in order to regain strength and flexibility, but there's nothing stopping me now. Well, except maybe for a nap. I'm worn out from the trip into town.

Glad you are progressing along. Keep up the good work.

I was suppose to have my knee done today but the surgeon had to reschedule. Now it is next Wednesday.

I will be in McKinney the week before having the shades replaced at MCD. Aster that I will find a CG in the area to enter the holding pattern until the 23rd. The more the merrier.

We are about an hour west of Steve in North Ft Worth right by Texas Motor Speedway off 35 so we can pull out early enough to hook up with everyone. It looks like Wayne will be up here too. We will have to ask Earlene if Wayne can come out and play but they will probably hook up too. I think Cart was planning on joining us as well so we could have six mutants Rollin Rollin Rollin Down the River.....oops i mean highway.

Hmm, it must be time to start counting down the days until the GC@CL again.
Great news! You must have been a good, compliant patent. See you in Arkansas in April.

Great to hear you are doing very well.
Time sure flies.

Best wishes and prayers for continued recovery.
