Morning everyone;
MK - yup send us your email by private message. Or send it to Lynne through the meet and greet thread. Got to try to ignore the dummies as some of them are just trying to get you going. There are a few who I would like to get in a choke hold. I think it is tough to be a moderator. Hopefully they will review and determine you were being baited.

Beautiful pictures Rail and Jira. Looks like a grand place to visit and a great part of the world to live.

Just finished taking down the dying birch trees at the front of the house. All of the debris is cleaned up but now I have to find a dry place to store the firewood. Have the garage full of stove length and this is cut fireplace length. Some splitting to be done in the future!!! Suggested to rent a splitter. Liking that idea more by the minute.

Daughter and grand daughter came over early this morning to help with the last of the cleanup. Went really quickly and had a grand time visiting while working.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

Hey guys and gals,

Things are wrapping up here at the old S&B & Patty has us living out of suitcases. Movers are coming for the things that are staying in WA in a few days.

I have the Jeep packed up and about to make a road trip to see some coaches. Lets hope at least one of them is as advertised. So many have been disappointing on arrival. But thats what you get unless you're ready to go all in for the 300K+ models. Maybe the next one.

Have a blessed day,

Evening All,

Wow, another beautiful day here in MI. This is the kind of weather I like.

MK, sent you a PM with my E-mail address. Please send me yours so we can keep in contact if something happens.

Sometimes people don't like hearing the truth no matter what. Anyone remember Huffy Puff? Don't miss that conversation, It scared me.

Everyone have a great day tomorrow. Goodnight All Lynne

Jay - good luck with the coach quest. There will be one out there with your name on it as Lynne and Rail can attest to. Hope yours comes sooner rather than later.

Good morning all!

68* here, no clouds to be found. Thunderstorm came through in the middle of the night, sounded like we got a good amount of rain.

Got 21 tons of gravel to spread on the driveway this morning, lots of bare spots need a little here and there as this dag blamed red clay is showing. It tracks everywhere!

Big party here tonight, the graduation festivities begin. Got the campfire setup, and the grill cleaned, the lawn manicured, etc etc etc... I'm sore!

Frank, my honey do list has me working longer hours than you!! That does not sound bad,,, except for the hot Florida part.

Bap,,,, see if you get last nights storm!

Have a great day all. off to the gravel spreading!

Well the coffee is great and guess what??....I am still here...lol...still have not been contacted by a moderator...lol

I know I need to keep my temper in check at times and for the most part I do but being in corrections for 24 years takes its toll on patience and anger sometimes .....oh well

I am seriously considering pouring concrete on all 5 acres I have here in huntsville to try to combat all this rain.....seriously I will not be able to mow for at least 2 weeks and that's if it stops raining right now....but we are under a flood watch till Sunday. ..luckily my place doesn't flood but you can't walk in the yard....lol

Be safe and enjoy life

Good morning everyone! Well, it is night over here, anyway,,,,,,,
MK, glad you are still here, would be a shame if some knuckle head caused you to leave! I also have run into a few on here, but for the most part, everyone is a good egg!
Lloyd, have a big fun time, and congrats to the graduate's!
Well my son is getting Mona ready for their first camping outing! I had to call him and go over a few things, but for the most part, he's got it figured out! Here was today's running around, we went to Baen San beach, and to the university aquarium. Was a fun day! A few pics!

Good Morning Everyone;
Good day here. I think I mentioned we finished the birch cleanup yesterday.

Checked the garden and the rain has produced the correct results. Lots of rows of plants coming up. Also the weeds but that is for another day. Tomorrow back to mowing. With two of us mowing it does not take that long. Janet does the tight stuff with the zero turn and I do the large areas with the JD.

Working on the coach today. The step cover does not come out. Motor clicks and I can see the shaft try to turn but something must be binding. Found an access panel so will take that off and see what I can see.

Everyone have a great day.

Good Morning Friends,

Coffee is great as always.

Scramble Scramble all day yesterday. Didn't stop until 10:30pm.

Headed to Ogden tomorrow morning to look at a Monaco. Signature double slide tag with 500hp. Then off to see another in Sacramento and back up to Oregon for a Country Coach.

Saw another one advertised in Ogden that had an LP water heater go south really cheap. Will stop in and see it and if the damage is as minimal as advertised we will pick it up and take it to OK and use it for veterans housing at Liberty Farms. At 15K asking price for a 99 Dynasty dual slide is pretty cheap. If they will take 12K and the rest of the coach is fine....

Today I will make sure everything is squared away so Patty wont have to scramble while I am away.

Sunday is my B-Day so shes taking me to dinner tonight.

Those of you affected by all the rain are in our prayers. Remember your life is worth far more than any property and keep safe.

Rail you always send the coolest pix. We used to keep a 1000 gal salt water tank and had some of those fish. The big move required us to sell our fish back to the saltwater store. Too hard on them to try and make a move like that and would hate to lose any of them. I used to sit for hours watching them. So calming.

Well I better get busy on my daily punch list. Have a blessed day...

Goooodmorning all yall!!!

Im back up in Fairbanks to see all the things that were closed when I drove through on May 10th. After Fairbanks Im heading down to Valdez and visiting several points in between including the bush town of McCarthy.

On the way up from Anchorage I shot this eye-candy outside of Denali NP.

Further on, in a burst of tackiness , I simply had to photo-document Skinny Ds humble establishment.

Life is good!

Good Evening Gang,
Too Funny, but I think that I read that same article at one time, and what you are saying is supposed to be fact.
Glad that you got the trees cleaned up.
One of the advantages of Full Timing, is that the Honey Do lists are much smaller than a S&B. Tell the Grads, congratulations from Rita and I.
Great pics, looks like you and Jira are having a blast, keep it up.
Glad that you are still with us.
Jay and Octanefam,
Don't give up on your search, the right coach will pop up when you least expect it. Just keep plugging away, and you will know the right one when you see it.
