    I got less then 3 weeks till i am sitting on the sandy shores of Myrtle Beach in the direct sun for more then 10 hrs a day ,, and we got a killer spot this yr ,, step out of the MH and walk 2ft and on the shore ,, nothing better then that IMO ,, we are heading out the 24 of May ,, and won't be back till the 25 or 26th of June ,, makes it kinda nice now that my wife is not working ,, we have more time to spend without deadlines ,, and i got to admit we really need this time more then ever this yr ,, only one thing that i wil miss ,, and that is the fact that i did not get to take my mom to see the ocean one more time ,, but due to what happend and so fast ,, i didn't have a chance ,, so this yr ,, i am dedicating our vacation to my mom ,, she is with us in spirit ,, and that is all that matters :approve: :) :)

    Enjoy your vacation Rod and I hope you get the nice, warm temperatures you enjoy. We left Florida in April 15th in 90 degree heat, so you should be plenty warm up there at Myrtle Beach. :cool: :cool:

But all that is determine on how well Maria does May 11 with her heart check up and maybe a stent or 2. But we want know till then if we go, but not canceling my reservation till I know for sure. So pray for us, more for her.

    90 to a 100+ No way!!! Time to go to the mountains. No sand between my toes or sharks looking for a meal :laugh: Not a beach person myself. More of a mountain man. JK Rod get the MH ready and have a good trip. Hollis, Thoughts and prayer are with Maria May 11. All will be fine and you and Maria will go and have a great time at the beach.

    Hey Nash I am with you, love the mountain especially the north GA. TN. mountains. The beach is a family thing, kids and grand kids love it and we tag along to sit with the GKs one night so the parents can go out and have some fun on there own with no kids. Rod can have all the direct sun he wants, not for me, he will eaten up with skin cancer before he get to 50 YO . But that is his life and he loves what he does, more power to him to be able to do it.

    60 - Yes, 70 - Great. 80 / 90 / 100 - You'll find me in the air conditioning somewhere, but not outside if I can avoid it. Put up with enough of that when I didn't have a choice. :eek: :eek: :laugh: :laugh: :) :) But all y'all can enjoy it all you want, and have my share too. :laugh: :laugh:

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    good point ,, but as hollis mentioned ,, about the skin cancer ,, well i already have it ,, but that ain't stopping me ,, the dr told me 3 yrs ago ,, that i could not have nothing to do in the sun unless i covered up everything ,, well not me ,, i will take life as it comes ,, and if i can't enjoy the way i like in the full sun and on the beach ,, to me not worth a dime ,, u only live once ,, and the way i see it ,, this is my once :approve: :approve: :eek: :eek:
    But one other thing ,, i doubt if i will die of skin cancer ,, i have been exposed to much worse stuff ,, asbestos from clutches and brakes ,, all kinds of toxic fumes from fires ,, and lead ,, back when i worked with a guy that did auto body and he was one of the last that actually used lead to fill in seams and such on older cars
    and also ,, the beach life is just not for families ,, i have met many surfers that were 60 + and still going at it ,, and they do throw one heck of a party at night on the beach ,, they live to party and risk their lives ,, as i said ,, i only have one life and i will live it to the fullest ,,, since i have no GK's ,, and proly won't till after i am gone , then i will live the way i want ,, i raised my kids ,, and now it's time for them to support me :eek: :laugh: :laugh:

    You GO Rod! I think the perfect vacation is the one that fits the person. It's so great that Lynn loves the beach as much as you do. However, with that being said, we are still planning to head West around June 1st. Only 12 more days of school!!!!! :laugh:

    This GS is killing us...no, just kidding. It's just hard to look at our RV every day and not be able to go anywhere. Come on June! We are thinking of heading up toward Lake Powell and spending a couple of weeks just hanging out. We missed the Needles when we went to Canyonlands and I really want to do some serious hiking. There is so much to see and do around the area. Since we have spent some time in Arches, Bryce Canyon (LOVED BRYCE), and Zion, we know we will enjoy exploring Canyonlands more.

    Hollis, we are certainly keeping Maria in our prayers and anxiously awaiting the news she is ready to head to NB! :)

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    Sounds like you got a plan, Rod. I know what you mean about the tools and spare parts. My Bro-In-Law ragged on me about all the tools and stuff I brought along last year - so this year we went with his plan. Minimal tools and parts. Sooooooooooo - when the lights went out on the trailer, we had to go and find a Walmart and when that didn't work, had to find an RV repair shop.

    So next trip I'll be back to carrying all my tools and toys and leave my Bro-In-Law behind :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Really? I LOVE our shower. But when not in use, our shower also doubles as the dirty clothes hamper holder!! :laugh:

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    Well you bet we use ours, why have a shower if you aren't going to use it, might as well have a tent to camp in. There is nothing in ours that we don't use, that is why be bought a MH in the first place. I know Rod will take a bar of soap to the ocean and bathe there., but the EPA will get him for killing or running the fish off :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: BTW we have 7 days and we are off to Destin,Fla for a week.MH is ready and loaded to go. :approve: :approve:
