Know the feeling completely. make all the intricate plans you want and life still gets its way.


The fun thing is ignoring that inevitability and restarting the planning. The real trick will be reestablishing home base every day when doing the planning. All trips will no longer return to where you started the voyage and we all know the journey is the destination so .......

It *is* the destination when one is en route, that's for certain. I love that part of getting to wherever one is going. So much to see and witness things that only occur while en route. Even night travels I find enjoyable, especially with a full moon lighting the landscape.

Been getting things prep'd for the 1,000 mile trip to Mackinaw, really looking forwards to it. Been telling the birds they better get ready for another adventure!

I think that the mods can link your new id to your old id or something if you wanted to look into it, and possbily keep your campfires, etc.

I got them back.

I do have a spelling problem, my only hope is to have spell check... Doesn't work when the wrong spelling used is also a valid word..


Thanks for the spelling lesson, I feel better now. Mutated another step.

I actually had replied in Tim's tongue (that means language Time) and then Earlene snickered at my spelling so I went back and looked. I then decided Time be danged and the edit button was still available and I put it in the correct language. Sorry if it was confusing Tim. (See below)

Eastern time is horrible. Nothing ends until after 11 p.m.

Tim, you've been confused since you got out of diapers and then that may have been confusing for you

Moments ago I saw what can only be described as a horse and buggy traffic jam. We are camp within site of a major highway intersection. I know I counted 10 buggies but there were more involved. Seems one of the horses didn't want to cross the busy intersection where traffic wasn't slowing down any.

Horse was bucking and going crazy, cars zomming by, 6-8 men from other buggies came running to help. Road blocked for a few minutes. Very exciting time setting here looking out my front window. Not so sure about buggy occupants. Certainly a different lifestyle.

Road rage is probably handled differently, too.

True, we took a buggy ride around town and had vehicles zooming impatiently around us.

Of course Wayne was in the back seat so I could understand why they were anxious to get around us.

Our driver only showed indifference to them.

Mutants I'd like to apologize to you. I spent the day with Chuck and Sara Saturday, and today they loaded up and headed South. Now I know Chuck knows that the FEUMIGC is North from here. Couldn't have been anything I said.

Ahem. I made it to Michigan. Well, 5 miles into the state! Weather was stormy and pouring so I drove on. 600 miles today. Crazy ya? It is not raining here, but the wind is howling. Could not manage the ground tarp, let alone the lightweight tent. Tonight is the first try on the bed in the back. I hope I donít whack my head too many times.. Bows to the GP and Nola for getting me to a campground and through the maze called Ohio. The grand thanks from the campground I worked in since February: half the air was removed from my left front and right rear tires. Ya, I am one of those that checks those things. 700+ miles later, the tire pressure remains stable.
