Jeff and Suzanne, Congratulations. Be sure to post the dates. It will be fun for all of us to see you guys on TV. What fun!

We are at the SKP park in Benson. It is a great park, and everyone has been warm and friendly. Will definitely be back.

Dave and Diane (Scubadave) and Mike and Charlie (Charlie 60) are here, too. It has been great fun.

All right - that's enough. Everyone quit having so much fun until we can get done with (shudder) REPAIRS! All of a sudden the coach wouldn't start from the chassis batteries, had to boost with the house batteries. We did all of the trouble shooting we could think of, Dave was checking batteries, etc. We decided that we would replace the chassis batteries (they were very old), but that didn't help. So we made the trip back to Phoenix to have Cummins look at the coach. All the while knowing that when they found it, it would be small. Sure enough, it was in a cluster of contacts that Dave couldn't get to. Since we were here, we also had them change oil/filters/and lube. And either the stars are in the correct position or something, but in doing the inspections and replacing filters, they found the hangers for the air intake assembly had cracked and would likely have let go, resulting in BIG $$$ repair of the engine. Seems diesels really like to have their air clean and cool coming in. What is it they say, pay me now or pay me later? Well, we leave here a little lighter in the pocketbook, but hopefully avoiding a disaster out on the road somewhere.


So we are headed back to Las Vegas so we can go see Candy Dulfer (Jazz saxaphonist) this weekend and then start our treck towards wine country.

We finally made it to Pahrump today. Wind is really blowing!


We had thought we would try and stay in Vegas to go to our concert tomorrow, but everything (and I mean everything) was booked. icon_rolleyes.gif So we will drive over tomorrow afternoon and back after the concert.


Going to get together with Joe and Nancy this weekend and tour the winery and do some tasting! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Hi all you folks in Benson. I'm right next door to the SKP park, at San Pedro, which has a great Passport America rate. Maybe I'll ride my bike over to the SKP and visit before you all leave since it'll be warm this weekend. I saw some of you rowdy folks at La Posa/Quartzsite one night.


Regards, Ann from Colorado, Class of 2006.

Finally some classmates heading to Florida!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Jim and I are absolutely loving our new home in the KEYS!! Right now we are staying in one of the houses on the refuge, but will be moving into our own place on Monday!! We were so fortunate......we found a completely furnished house on a canal (we even have our own boat dock)!! Since it is completely furnished, we don't have to 'repurchase' all of the furniture and necessities that we just sold!! The owner is even leaving her kayak, gas grill, televisions, etc. for us to use!!


Jim seems to really be enjoying his "WORK" here, but then he has always loved what he does. The FLORIDA KEYS REFUGES start at Key Largo with the Crocodile Lake FWR and then there are three more between Key Largo and the last one is about 30 miles southwest of Key West....yep you guessed it, most of it is underwater!!


There are some fabulous RV Parks down here, so if any classmates find yourselves in our area, please give us a shout! We are living on Big Pine Key (which is the location of the National Key Deer Refuge and is also the location of the offices for all four refuges!!


Glad to hear everyone is having such a wonderful time 'on the road' and we are enjoying reading about all of the mini-get-togethers!!


Latest update on Class size: 188 Rigs




Safe Travels.....

Alright you guys, I'm really getting "hitch-ich" reading your posts!


I've been hanging here around Marysville, CA, for less than a month and already I miss the road!!


I'll have to hang in here until after the Escapade then, FINALLY, on the road to Whistler, BC.


Well, ok, the wild turkeys & deer are paying my site a visit now. I guess it isn't all that bad after all!!


Travel Safe,

Hi Anne,

Nice to hear from you again. Are you on your way to Stockton? It would be nice to see you again. I'm currently in Livingston. I should be a Texan by the end of next week. Cheers for now...............mike


Hey Steve,

How you doing Chief? Hope everything is good with you and Laurie. If I don't make it back to Yuba City before the Escapade, I should see you at the Escapade. If by chance we miss each other have a wonderful trip to Canada. Later, Gator.............mike

We are still here in the desert...and the weather is to change today...it is actually gonna'start gettin' warm...should be 86 by tomorrow...that's something, since it was in the mid thirties on Wednesday night...

icon_biggrin.gifMike...we should cross paths soon...we are headin' East...and you are headin' West... icon_smile.gif


How has the weather been in Livingston???


We will be on the most Southern route though...trying to stay out of "tornado alley"...and you will probably head out to California on a more Northern route...


Any way have a great trip... icon_cool.gif

Hi Charlie, The weather here reminds me a lot of the Midwest when I was growing up. Warm, muggy, buggy, and thunderstorms with lots of rain. Temps have been mostly in the 70s. Not sure what you mean by a southern route. I'll probably go back on 8, 10 or 40 or a combination there of. They're all southern cal routes. Anyway, be safe and have fun................mike
