Good Morning, Everyone! Coffee is very good today!
Lloyd, glad you had a great trip! Blow's about the surge protector, but glad it waited till you got home!! You can wire around it till you get a new one!! We all missed you too!
Bap, hope you did not get washed away!
Gordon, good that you are getting the rain, but the winds!
Lynne, sounds like a plan, but you have plenty of time to decide!
Dang, Tim! Those were some Pic's! The before was pretty bad! But looks like the Dr. did a great job, so now you just have to follow orders! Let the antibiotic's do there job, and stay off it! Just say'n!!! We all want the best for you!
H-12Mike, glad your new A/C is working great for you! I think I am not far from doing the same thing, as mine are 20 years old, and the front one looked pretty bad when I had the cover off and cleaned it! It still works OK, but I have not had it in the extreme heat yet! My son says it is still doing the job, but I think before the "Meet and Greet", I will swap it out!
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Well - our rain became a deluge. For here anyway. We got 1 inch in about 40 minutes. Gutters were running full, puddles everywhere. Rain has stopped (Mudder, Fodder, kindly disregard this letter!!)

Lynne,
I hope thst you are planning on spending the winter of 2017/2018 with Rita and I here in Brooksville. If you are, you need to book your site sometime around June/July 2017. We should have plenty of room, especially if you plan on staying 3 to 4 months or longer. You and Jerry will fit right in with the gang here, and within the month you will feel like it is home.They should have the majority of the construction on the park done by then.
Frank

Morning,
Currently 68,
Coffee is good , left overs but that's okay
We went for Prime Rib Dinner last night, I haven't been there for at least 25 years, back then it was $11.95 for a King Cut 42 oz. last night it is $29.95. Well worth it one of the best Prime Rib dinners I've had. There was 6 of us and 4 had the special. The guy that really like Prime Rib called in sick? Can one do that ? I guess. So we took a picture and texted it too him but got no response.
Best park is my brother picked up the tab and I get Prime Rib/Egg breakfast Thank you Brother....

I broke one of the convertible top Latch Knuckles on my 64 caddie Friday night, Can't be re welded. I found them on a web site for $340.00 or $170.00 for the one I need. I can't believe they are that much. I called 6 different places and no one has one except at that site. B U M M E R.
http://thumbs.ebaystatic.com/images/...TbA/s-l225.jpg
I called the guy we bought the car/MH to see if he had knowledge of finding one but no luck with that but said he found a red taillight piece we are missing and some other stuff he wants to give us, Boy I can't wait to see what he giving us... ( Is It Christmas)


I have been doing as the Doc ordered. Stay off the foot. If I need to get up for something I use a cane too support that foot. I've been battling that foot for well over a year. I want it healed too.
Lloyd glad you had a good and safe time. I remember you saying that you want to stay put where you are, but did you get the itch too just keep going?
Gordon, is it to soon too start the count down?
Some one has said that "No Pictures Didn't Happen" so here's the Prime Ribs.

Those on the road be safe,
Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Tim,
That piece of meat looks big enough to feed the whole table. Looks like everyone is ready to chowdown.
Frank

Morning all!

Hey Lynne, How long do you need to store your coach for? We are not to far from N.C..

Tim, we came back,,,,,, to get ready to go west for a month. Targeting leaving here on the 18th.

Adjusting to this retirement thing. Still feels weird and more like vacation.

Good Afternoon,

Lloyd, we will be storing it from end of October when we drive down to sometime in January when we come down and pick it up. The CG by my Brother is $50. a month for that. My biggest issue is will the weather in NC be warm enough for us to camp there from middle January 2018 to end of April or do we need to head down to where Rita and Frank are.

Frank, would love to come down there but want to spend some time with my brother and his wife too. Been 6 years since I have seen them. It will be 8 by then. We'll spend time when we go down probably 2 weeks or so, depends on a few things. Could spend a month with them either then or on the way north.

What is the weather like in SC during those months Lloyd? I'll learn all this stuff eventually but right now I do not know how far South we need to go to get away from snow and cold. I'll get used to it when I retire. Only 18 months to go roughly.

Tim, Glad you are doing what the doctor says, that is so important. Circulation and infection issues can be bad. If I was down there we would do some therapeutic massage to improve circulation around that leg and foot. Helped my SIL a lot.

Popeye, They used to make things to last. I think now things are made to be disposable. No money in it for the companies if things last very long.

Not getting much camping done but getting things done around the S&B's. Picked up some stones today for landscaping. Heading out soon to get it done.

Planning a 2 day stay at a Casino in August. Jerry won some good money and got put into a drawing for more. He has to be there to collect if he gets chosen, so camping we will go at the Casino.

Have a nice day all, Lynne

Lynne,

Try weather.com. Enter the city in question. The current weather conditions will appear. Then, click on the menu option for "Monthly" near the top. The current month's temps will appear. Scroll down on that page and you will find a graph with the average high and low temperatures for that city. Right below that is the average precipitation for that city.

NC is a wide state from east to west. The winter weather varies drastically from end to end. We used to live in the middle (Chapel Hill and Durham). It is relatively flat with some rolling hills. We would get snow in the winter that sometimes shut the roads down. They did not really have the proper equipment. Hours to the west of us were mountains. Lots of snow, but better equipment. Raleigh was to the east of us and subject to freezing rain and ice. Further east is really flat. Finally, the east coast at the Atlantic Ocean is more moderate.

If it were me, and I wanted to really escape the cold, I would NOT be in NC in January or February. I would be in FL!

Lynne, casino camping is a blast! Especially when they give you free play, senior free breakfast buffet and free campground stay with full hook-ups. These campgrounds are usually "high end" with all the utilities. And they run a free shuttle to the casino.
We are heading off to Winstar Casino next week for three days. I just have to keep an eye on how much the "missus" donates to the reservation by way of the slots!

Lynne,
I would suggest that you come down here till at least the middle of March(end of March is better), then spend a month or 2 with your brother on the way home. If you want to stay out of the cold, you don't want to be home till at least the middle of May, The 1st of June is even better, no need to winterize, then the following fall head south (or west) around the middle of October. If you get a chance to stop at Lloyd's, he has a wonderful place to stay.
Frank

Hi All!

Lynne, as Charles said, the weather can vary here greatly depending on where you are in either state. I am near Charlotte, N.C... Our average high here in the winter is 50, however we can see 70,,,, or only get in the 30's,,,, that's the problem with averaging.

Last winter we saw the teens a few times, but only at night. Don't recall any 24 hour period that the temps stayed below freezing.

Can you give us a idea of where your brother is located?

Not sure what happened with our surge protector. No error lights, just waits it normal 2 mins 15 secs, then it is supposed to click and turn on the power. But nothing happens. Woreked perfectly earlier in the day at the campground we left.

Good Evening,

Brother lives in Jacksonville by Camp Lejune where he was a Marine for 22 yrs. I plan (?) to have knee replacement Sept 2018 after Meet & Greet. Get a bit recovered, then head down to park the rig for the winter. We will winterize it just in case. Will depend on doctor appts. Then when done (officially) with work on Dec 31, 2017 we will drive down after the 1st to pick it up and travel.

If I get a few weeks with my brother and SIL in fall, then we can leave there without staying and head down to Florida from the sounds of it that is what we need to plan. Can head back middle of April and then on to MI fist part of May.

Got a lot of weeding done yesterday and today. Ran some landscape fabric down and added river stone to a good size area. Have any of you used any of the rubber wood chips? I am thinking of the areas we use chips to use these instead. Get tired of replacing wood chips every year. Would like to get it done and not have to do it again and then when we sell it it will still look good.

Otherwise, next weekend is the county fair. Going to work at one of the booths on my days off. They have a lot of stuff and I always enjoy the fair.

Hope you all have a great week. Lloyd if you are home when we come through would love to stop by and say HI.

Lynne
