I agree with Rail. Not too far north so it is too cold. South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Texas are central.

We are still working on a hip surgery date. Looks like it could be in April or May. Still negotiating but have to see some DR. to get clearances and protocols. More as we find out.

We will be in Yuma so Phoenix would be great for us. Long ways for folks from the east.

As we are maybe's it is best not to worry about us.

Good Afternoon, Tim, thanks for the info will pass it on to DW. Gordon, The main thing is to get Janet up and around, I'm sure we will meet up sometime, Two yrs ago I said that I wanted to ride (motorcycles) around the united states, since then I've had to have one knee replaced and a hip screwed & pinned together along with developing severe osteoarthritus in my hands to the point I can't grip without pain, so riding around is out of the question, hence the Toy Hauler, we are going to make that trip and stop in several places along the way and ride short trips, long story is thats why I know that I will meet up with people that I have met on here. If it doesn't happen this yr it will be next for sure, (as sure as life is).

Worked on the garage area, foamed the gaps and started on the walls.

Looks good Terry, The more you get insulated the easier that you can get it warm. How about somewhere around north Alabama or Mississippi? It will be relatively warm there and around 1000 to 1500 miles for all but the far west coast and north New England.

Hi Frank, I have a good friend near Cullman, Alabama, thats around 1000 miles from us. I'm not familiar with the area, but I'm sure we can find something.

Terry,
Cullman is north of Birmingham just off of I-65. There looks to be around 6 campgrounds within 25 miles of Cullman, so that looks like as good a spot as any. I'm sure being close to Birmingham and Huntsville that there will be a lot to do within an hours drive or less.
Frank

Hi Tim, we have been talking about an area around Cullman, Alabama. Just waiting to see what anyone else might have to say. I'm still working on the garage area, it takes a little time because of the way I need to work, (darn cold weather) I can only work on one side at a time because I have to have a work table set up in the middle of where I'm working. Once the garage area is done I can use that as a shop to build the rest. Plus the big stuff I use my other shop that has the saws ect in it, lots of running around!!

For us to go from Yuma to Cullman to home will be a trip of close to 5000 miles according to the GPS. That will be a detour of about 2200 miles. Time committment may be hard to justify with all of the other things happening. Will have to see.

Understand the working around. My Dad and I built a 40' bus into a RV. Did all of the work (winter) in the bus including building the cabinets, etc from mahogany. Just kept at it and one thing after the other came into line.

Had to be really careful to do things in a logical order so did not have to take stuff already installed out to install the stuff that should have been installed first. LOL

Good Morning All, Gordon, That trip would be around the horn as they say. Janet will probably have 6 to 8 weeks of physical therapy after her hip surgery, plus the other, so spring early summer might be busy for you guys. The plan in the TH is to get the garage area done so it can be used as a work shop for the rest of the trailer, then do the bedroom area, by then the main cabin (hopefully) will be organized. I keep running things thru my head to keep from "doing things out of order". It's a challenge, but fun.

I got all the walls up in the garage area, DW needs to paint them now and I'll put the diamond plate trim up after that, then the ceiling. Have a few more details then on to the bedroom area, gotta go springs comming..
