We are nestled in the boondock lot at Isles of Capri at exit 27 on I10. Will be going into the casino fairly soon to pay our fair share for the honor of paying nothing for the overnight.



Once again Colleen, great job on the mutant gathering.. Thanx also to Di who worked on some things too.



See y'all in the future.

Thanks Chuck for thinking of me, but those rhinestones just don't look comfortable. Besides, I built a small deck on The Cabin ( that's the name given my stand by the camp members) which makes #1 just like at home, off the deck. #2 best done back at camp, although a country boy always goes prepared with the proper paperwork!

Let us know how that all goes.........we might be next and I have heard great things about Fisher & Paykel products.
I have a F&P drawer dishwasher and it's great. My only complaint is that parts are very pricey and not easy to get. Took almost a month to get a water inlet hose. And we may have a problem finding someone qualified to do repairs if away from a large metro area.

BTW -- what's your plan to keep doors closed when you turn sharp corners running all over the country?

I thought only ships had poop decks....
