Nov 12, 2016 - Veterans Day

First thing November 11th, the park had a breakfast and tribute for the veterans. It was pretty nice and all of us were recognized and were asked to tell where and when they served.

Later on we went to Costco for a while and saw these giant king crab legs, they were huge!

Oct 28, 2016 - Departure

Well, after getting all of our doctor appointments completed over the last two months we were finally ready to head south for the winter. It was 2 o'clock before we turned onto 127 south. It was sure good to get back on the road. It is where we are the happiest. We made it a little over 100 miles before we stopped for the night at the Cape Giradeau Walmart.

My poor garden has been drenched for the last week and it is suffering some, and the rabbits are trying to wipe out Glamma's green beans, they will be sorry about that! I got to mow a little and do some spraying and while mowing I came across that turtle digging a hole to lay her eggs, cool. Got a new dash radio installed in the motorhome without too much...

Apr 26, 2016 - Getting ready

There's a lot of work to get done before our trip. The last couple of days were spent replacing the house batteries and a few battery cables. Also Denis helped with awning repair, buffing out some scratches, giving the motorhome a bath and a wax. It shines like a new one. I can't thank Denis enough for everything he does to help me! Thanks Cuz!
