I like that idea about running the wire through the radiator. You can use Sue’s chewing gum to plug up any leaks and it will keep the wires from getting hot!

Enjoy that 3yo. I’m sure we’ve got one that age somewhere. With 9 G Kids ranging from 1 to 12 at least one of them should be 3!

Leave my typing alone. Di needs to know she has one friend.

No, never, even after having to charge it after towing so many times,

How long will you be in Austin? Why Austin?
Fort Sam Houston RV Park is in San Antonio and a much better place to visit. Day trip to Austin is only about 1 hour away.

Austin to visit DD and SIL for a week (10/8-15). Staying at Oak Forest RV Resort because it's close and I didn't know any better when I booked it. We might day trip to SA and/or F'burg while we are there. Unfortunately the trip isn't a free-scheduled as we'd like, but we're getting our feet wet for future roving journeys.

This is a trip that we were supposed to take back in April but my previous rig went up in flames before we got out of the driveway.

"No, never, even after having to charge it after towing so many times," So, QED, the problem is not in the battery. Some parasitic drain perhaps.

Stayed there before years ago. Think I needed some work from Freightiner and they are only 4-5 miles away.

After you visit the Alamo, take the car and visit the Missions. There are 8 of them including the Alamo. Each one was designed to be a 1 day walk for people back in the day they were built to give them a place to rest. Of course, you know all this, right. I think I heard your wife say you were a know it all.

Fort Sam Houston has a nice exchange. The Gatewood Club at Lackland AFB has a nice lunch buffet. Closed Sunday and Monday.

Nimitz Museum in F'berg is interesting.

Happy trails, and what's your rush?

Unfortunately Tim and Richard showed up today at Catherine Landing. It was so nice to see Mary and Anne.

We did go to a Mexican restaurant tonight.

Here is the PoP:

Are you kidding! Today Kevan and I were cleaning our already clean MH's and Tim is trying to sweet talk us into doing his MH, not even mentioning paying us.

Well, he couldn't afford us anyhow. He'll probably get Mary to clean it when he goes home. He's so bad!

Sorry guys, since we don’t do much RVing anymore, I mainly use Facebook.

We are great for now, staying home, but we are 14’ above sea level to our garage, and then our house is 14’ stilted….

All prepped to camp in our house for a few days. Will post more later, but right now Ian is going to come in south of us. We are north of Tampa.

Both of us are happy and healthy…. Larry had a strep blood infection in July, but managed to beat tgat.

Take care, and I will post back.

Rolondo probably will get worse than us.
