Yep almost, the caddie is 21'6 and the MH is 30 ft. I wish the MH road as nice as the caddie does.

bap thanks, I didn't know that, brother lost a couple in the barn fire last fall, so now they have run of the farm. The are a hoot (or GobbleGobble) to watch. Any sound made and the 2 big Toms gobble its pretty funny. They sure like taking dirt baths, everyday they are seen flapping in the dirt somewhere. What happened to the coffee maker this AM? forget to place pot under the brewer?
Frank I took my test in moms 65 Buick LeSabre. I'd Love to have a 57 Deville convert. A couple guys in the car club have 57's but hardtops,
We really need the rain here, it just pored yesterday but got to about 1/4 mile from us and took a Sharpe left and missed us except for a few sprinkles, I was actually detailing the 64 under the aweing.

Tim

Good morning everyone;
Grand day here today. Going for a picnic tonight at a local park with some friends. Have not picnic'd for years.

Finished the 450 yesterday. Today is pack up and store all of the polishing equipment and tools. It will be a couple years before I have to do it again. Longer I hope.

Have a great time fishing Tim. Great to hear the repairs on the pontoon went so well. Caddie looking good. Are you bringing it down for the winter?

Frank - drive safe.

Missed the rain last night so today will be a working outside day after the tools are put away.

Have a great day.

Good Evening Gang,
Tim, Mom's was a coupe and you are right, a '57 covert would be a great ride.
Gordon,
Nice on all the wax jobs. They look great.
Bap,
Hope that you get the coffee pot straightened up so you have a good cup of coffee.
Have a great evening all,
Frank

Goodafternoon all yíall!!!

Iím still having trouble with my photo hosting service. I may have to get another.

Late this morning I arrived at my new home, the Pinion Hills RV Park in famous Capitan NM. ďFamous? Whatthehell is it famous for?Ē WellÖ Capitan is the home of the late Smokey the Bear, thatís whatthehell itís famous for. Seriously, I know sooner got here and a thunderstorm hit, but after the thunderstorm I looked out the window and two deer were looking back at me. I looked down just as a chicken walked through my front yard. Pinion Hills is an older park, a little dumpy, but lots of space between sites and scattered trees in between. Yíall can have your ďresortsĒ this is my kind of park.

Iím pleased to say my home on wheels made the trip with panache, its mighty 460 V8 conquering each and every grade I came to, YEEEHAAA!

Steve

Good morning everyone! Coffee was good today!
We went to our other house yesterday, and got the Everest washed and waxed! Then we visited Jira's old boss at her new house in the country! Very nice place surrounded by rice fields! She has three houses in the compound, two for her sisters and dad that has to have constant care because he is bedridden!
Mk, glad everything is going great for you!
Steve, that will be much cooler up there, and yes, a older park, but much nicer, my opinion too! I used to truck through the Hondo Valley all the time, before the 4 lane, and love it there!
Tim, have fun on the lake, and caddie looking good!
Bap, what happened to the coffee maker?
Everyone have a great day! Rail!!

Good Morning,

Haven't had coffee yet but heading there soon. More cleaning around the house today. Four season's room and flower bed weeding. It's presently 74 and heading to 90 so better get started before the heat makes me stop.

I like the older more rustic CG's too. That one really big one we went to was just to busy for us. We went to one in Pentwater and saw deer each night come through. Black squirrels and lots of birds. It was lovely.

Have someone from the Forum stopping to visit next week. Love it when this happens. Larry and Prissy will be coming through MI sight seeing and we are going to get together. Good times.

See you all later, have a great day! Lynne

Goodmorning all yíall!!!

I just finished my morning coffee, Peetís Coffee, Major Dickasonís Blend, YUM! I had a great nights sleep, but what made my night was when I awoke at 3pm (nature call) I looked out the window and it was pitch dark, no exterior street lighting at all. I immediately went outside and overhead was the Milky Way! WOOOHOOO! With all the damned light pollution these days people donít realize what theyíre missing in the night sky.

Today I simply have to thoroughly clean my squalor-wagon-on-wheels. Itís gotten so bad that even I canít stand it! However, itís only supposed to reach 75 degrees today so thatíll help activate me. Mainly, I need to vacuum, dust and generally tidy up, Iím pretty good about keeping the kitchen and bathroom clean, living in Houston, the cockroach capital of Texas taught me that. If it continues to be cool I may even buff and wax my RVís exterior. When I was visiting Alaska I picked up a power rotary buffer for $10 at a yard sale, I guess itís getting time to use it.

Itís soooo nice awakening to really cool temps!

Steve

Morning all!

Went to visit the grand daughter at her college yesterday (first year). Really nice place, she is trying her best to adjust. She has a soccer scholarship, so started 3 weeks sooner than other students to start practice.

Frank, how does Cracker Barrel sound? Exit 79?

Had issues with the water heater in the coach on last trip. Turn it on gas it lights for 1 sec, then goes out. Repeats 3 times then gets a error light. Turn it on and off again and it lights and works fine. Either dirty or the circuit board. Gonna work on it this morning.

New surge protector should be here today.

Rail, nice place!!! Again your pictures keep surpising me.
