It was a good ride today. Weather cooperated and rain stayed off the Interstate for the most park. In Lafette, LA, for the night

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Have a safe trip, y'all. Is there still a lot of 1-10 construction near Lafayette? Try to time Baton Rouge after rush hour.

Thanks Sara. No construction, at least no construction workers but it is a Sunday. Had one stretch of road with the cement barriers on the right side right on the white line. I moved over the the left and an 18 wheeler got a little ticked when I moved back over. Hit his horn as he passed. What the hey! He'll get over it and I was up to 70 for about 2 miles.

That's about 80 miles South of Tupper. We'll be looking for a CG somewhere in the Adirondacks in August,

What a lucky "break"! We were planted in one place long enough to find a new coach. We will pick up the new coach on the 25th in Grand Rapids, MI and bring it back to Champaign before we head out early August. The coach is a 2015 Dutchstar 4369.

We will be in the Grand Rapids area for a week as we pick it up, and spend a few days near by going through all systems in case they need to work on something.

Nice, congrats on the new coach, sounds really nice. I know another pair of mutants with a newer DS and it's a beaut. Good luck with the purchase and checkout of the systems.

Now that's a smooth move, buy a new coach following surgery so Sandee will have to move everything!

I sent you a PM.

What kind of rig do you have? Our campground is quite a bit on the rustic side. We have full hook-ups, but I worry about the narrow turns with all the jumping trees. we have had some very large 5th wheels in this spring though. I will ask the park owner. I am thinking you probably have a sweet Class A? FOR WAYNE M

It is the other way around. She has always wanted a door bell. It is one hell of a door bell for nearly $250K.

In 2013 we went to Quartzsite. I needed some LED lights.
Nola said, as we started to leave, “Let’s walk through the RV show. It doesn’t cost anything to look!”
She wanted a two-butt kitchen and I wanted a king sleep number bed.
And, thus, Gwen became “home”.
Sometimes what you think is bad timing can end up good!
She has a doorbell, now disabled.
