    We had a great time at the Rainbow Plantation, even with the "cooler" weather we managed to get in several bike rides at Gulf Shores State Park. Christmas and New Years were really fun too, lots to eat. LOL Now we are at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Arrived on Jan 1st and are camp hosting until the end of March. the weather is slowly starting to warm up, it's 60 today but raining. next few days look promising weather wise, we did enjoy a camp fire with a few of the other hosts last night. take care maybe everyone will thaw out a little and check in........

    we just signed up for the Escapade. currently we are in Eldora, Iowa at the Pine Lake State Park for the Labor Day weekend. when we arrived yesterday the tree branches were hanging down about 8 feet off the ground. I called the park office and the ranger came out and trimmed the tree so we could get into the site. he was really nice and friendly- mentioned he needed to do this for some time. today the park will fill up- feels good to be at a state park take care and I hope everyone is safe Steve

    We purchased it from Gauthier's in Lafayette, LA. Very nice and knowledgeable sales department- see Derek if you go there The warranty work was only for about 5 days spread over the 2 months. We are going back to the factory on Wednesday. The shop they sent us too was terrible and the factory needs to correct several items. All is good now and will be better come Wednesday. The major reason we stayed was Tessa dog got diagnosed with bone cancer which rare for a dog of her size. We were going to get her toe removed last week but the cancer spread to the knuckle so we decided per the vet not to have it removed. He said at this point it won’t matter and all we can do is manage the pain. She is doing really good, we found a product called hemp and hips and it seems to really help with the pain and mobility, so much so we are giving to our other dog Mattie. Both are 10+ years old. We also have a pain pill we give her after breakfast. hope I didn't bum anyone out - other than that we are doing great and can't wait to get on the road!!

    good t hear your OK- we have been in Elkhart the last 2 months and will be leaving on Aug 12th for our trip to SD. we only planned on staying 1 month but Tessa dog got sick and the warranty work took a little longer. we have been enjoying out time here seeing friends and family. I totally agree with "One thing I've learned is plans are just ideas....what really happens is reality!" wow that is so true. take care
  15. So we are planning our next several months and need some suggestions. Here’s is a quick breakdown of what we must do- leaving Elkhart on July 11th- need to visit South Dakota to finalize our domicile and then be in Southern California October 1st (we have reservations near Upland)This is one of the biggest trips I have started to plan and fortunately we have several months to do it.Any thoughts on places to stay and see and roads to avoid. not sure if we will go north through the UP of Michigan we have been here or west.We like to hike and visit state and national parks Badlands National Park is one we will go tooI know it’s a little late in planning but we just found out we need to be in the SoCal area (all good) this OctoberThanks!Steve
