    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    we are also now 10 days away from a month on the sands of the beach ,, and hollis ,, if i bathe in the ocean ,, that means food for the next day :eek: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: ,, but no really ,, our shower is to small to really use ,, and besides that the CG has great showers ,, (not like MR) but they will do ,, only thing we have packed (well me anyway) is my clothes ,, but my beach clothes stay in the MH all yr ,, daughter and wife ,,, well they have not even thought of what they are taking yet ,, we buy food and such once we get to where we are ,, no use having stuff spoil if something goes wrong with the refer ,, besides that ,, we will usally buy fish and such at a local market or butcher ,, that way it is fresh ,, but i can't wait to go ,, and one other thing ,, so glad we are spending an month there once agian ,, even though we are not staying at one place ,, and if i get the urge ,, we might even stay a bit longer ,, who knows ,, we have nothing tying us down now ,, so ,, i guess this is the start of part time rving ,, but i can't retire ,, if i do that all those 70 to 80 a night resorts will be outta the question ,, and i can't have that ,, i like my comfort and other places just don't have that IMO ,, and i will not stay anywhere there is alot of trees ,, hate trees even at the house ,, makes cleaning the MH up after a trip even worse ,, :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    well i am still waiting ,, ready to go ,, Wife bought me some bud light lime ,, i guess it was to get me primed for the beach ,, i like that beer ,, but to me nothing better then Landshark with lime and salt ,, and also Corona with the same ,, but there again there is the beach bar we can always go to for really good drinks ,, and if u spend enough with them ,, they will bring a drink to u on the beach ,, but in a concealed cup ,, boooze is not allowed on the beach in SC ,, but other then mid season ,, i have never seen them enforce that rule ,, they have told a few to pour it out ,, but those that did always had more ,, Horry County police drive the beach all day long ,, worse in the middle of the season ,, but they are cool ,, they never get in any bodies face about what they are drinking ,, just ask them not to do it again ,, and that's it ,, all they need now is a ocean swim up bar :approve: :approve: :approve: :cool: :cool: :cool: :eek: :eek:

    Well Rod I hope you get there safely. I know how excited you are about getting there. WE are having a blast. Kept GKs one night and a day, now they are at the other grand parents condo for a few days, so the mother and dad can once again act like newly weds. The weather is great except the humidity is setting in, the temp are in the hight eighties, with a cool breeze. I thinkk we are going to head home tomorrow repack and head up North HOPEFULLY A LOT COOLER. EVERYONE TAKE CARE BE BACK ON LATER.

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    WELL we are home now, resting and looking at a time frame we can head to the GA., TN. mountains to cool off. I been in the 90's here, heck even the pool is to hot to get in.. But first got to go to Charleston and help my son move into his bigger house, why he wanted a bigger one is beyoung me. We are going to do a low country boils for my birthday around the 18 of June, then I hope to get the heck out of town.

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    ok day 3 of the beach trip ,, today was windy ,, waves were wind blown ,, nothing worth even getting in the water for :( ,, but i did walk almost 117 miles today on the beach ,, i walked from the chair sight we have to MB resort ,, and then back and then all the way to Apache pier , the walking monitor i had on said 116.3 ,, i am gonna drive it in the car tomm and see how close it is :eek:
    Tomm if the weather is good ,, i plan to spend at least 3 to 4 hrs on the waves ,, i gotta practice on the new board due to the fact that there is a big surf party on sat night ,, and i know there will be alot of challenges out on the water ,, so i need to get the feel for the board ,, cause at 2am in the morning u can't see the waves u have to feel them ,, and if u are not on u'r board right ,, u'r gonna be fish food :eek:
    infact i might just go out there in a few and see how bad i do in the dark ,, that way i know where i stand as far as what i need to work on ,, the waves are pounding right now ,, can hear them as i am typing ,, all windows are open in the MH ,, and man does it sound good :cool: :approve:
    More to follow :approve:

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    Rod you need to get that WALKING MONITOR thing re-calibrated or reset it each day,116.3 or 117 is a lot on miles to walk in a days time.

    Re: 3 weeks and counting

    well maybe ,, hollis ,, but all i know is when i was at MB resort our chair area could not even be seen ,, and the peir did not exist ,, when u walk on the beach u walk and don;t realize how far u really walk ,, but i am gonna ck it by car tomm to see how far it is from where i am ,, to the resort then back to the pier ,, and i will let u know ;) :approve:
    but that is one thing i will do when down here ,, i walk the beach ,, just something i have to do ,, get board sitting when i can't be out on the ocean ,, but that is me ,, i can't stand to sit still ,, i have to be doing something ,, and i guess walking is my way of taking up the day :approve: :approve:

    hey no problem with walking, I wished I was there to walk with you. I know I need to walk more than I do and that would be a good place to do it.

    Yeah, Rod, a 116 mile walk on the beach would have pretty much eaten up all your vacation. :eek: :eek: :laugh: :laugh:
