    The pink stuffs still in the jug here Rod. Going into the 30s next week but that's not cole enough to hurt anything. Still hoping to get on the road soon anyway. Maybe go down and stay wit Tex or Shadow :laugh: Now if I can just figure out which, out of the million, Dairy Queens Tex lives behind. :eek: :laugh: ;) Maybe Shadow will pile all his hay around us so we want have to winterize :cool: With as many Texans as we have on here now all of us should be able to winter in Texas unless they are in North texas.

    My antifreeze is in the jug also. I plan to use my trailer thru Christmas. Lows have only gotten to the low 30's and like Nash says, that is not cold enough to hurt anything. We usually stay like this for a while and that is what I am hoping for. Monday here is going to be 70 with lows in mid 40's next week. Good thru Halloween for sure!!

    well it looks like we all still want to get out and keep the pink stuff in the jugs. We are thinking maybe going to Fort Wilderness at DW next month. And besides it hasn't gotten that cold yet to winterize yet. as always keep going and happy camping

    I hate to say this. I'm not sure I've seen "pink" stuff for sale in our area.

    Actually Hollis, I'm at Oak mountain state park in Birmingham, AL. Not the greatest state park but @ $19/night full hook ups not bad. Have to admit Rod, I did have to use the heat pumps last night. Did you see gas in Harlingen Tx was $1.98...regular.

    Jim is that for real, 1.98 a gallon of gas? now we all could use that , say next spring when we start getting out again. Also you are about 100 miles from me come on over for awhile.

    We are not ready to winterize yet. We just came back from the "beach" :eek: Got a great tan! :cool: What a great weekend! Rod I keep telling you to come on down. No antifreeze needed yet :bleh: The only bad thing about the whole weekend besides having to come home is that I used two pounds of shrimp and only caught 5 fish. :( I took pictures of some stuff and asked John to take pictures of me fishing and then of my two fish that I caught at the same time but he only got the top of my head and did not get anything looking like fish. :disapprove: I have to give him photography lessons. :eek: I hope that we will have many weekends left before we have to cover up and winterize. :)

    I will winterize my park trailer on Sunday as my seasonal campground is closing up for the winter. I will keep my class C going for a while, though. We're going to camp in it at the closed campground in early November, then we will camp in it again over Thanksgiving, and quite possibly again over Winter Break unless it snows before then.

    Use our trailer year round here.. No need to winterize. Come on over Chelse. If things work out for us we will follow you back east on our way to see Rod and Ken. Maybe catch Archer if he hasn't already went back home. Want to spend the summer in Maine if I get to retire. :eek:

    Carol, should have came to the casino with us. Did well on the Caribbean Stud and Pai Gow tables. Hit one jack pot on the slots that gave me some play money !! :bleh: :cool:

    We already used the "pink stuff" simply because the temps can change so drastically almost overnight here. Still, we think nothing of flushing it out for a good weekend of weather. Been really nice here the past couple of days. Temps in the 60's during the day but freezes at night.

    Butch you really know how to hurt a person! :disapprove: :laugh: But I will be at the casino on Nov. 22, we are going for John's birthday. We did enjoy a great weekend though. Beautiful weather with very few neighbors on the beach. Not good fishing though. And hey that jackpot you won on the slots that was supposed to be mine remember I said "play a machiine for me" :clown:

    Didn't win that much Chelse. But if I can get the market to rally for a few more days my plan may work out. ;)

    Carol, Which one Y'all going to ? We are headed back Thanksgiving weekend.

    Mike, you are so right. She hung me up by my ankles and took all the cash :eek:
    She didn't find the poker chips thou!! :bleh:

    Eat your hearts out. Heading for Vegas tomorrow and then on to Laughlin, NV. ;) :bleh: :approve: The only problem is that I'm the proud new owner of a Atwood 6 gal 115 V/DSI propane water heater ($800 installed). :( Guess I'll be playing the penny slots :laugh:

    Hey Butch we will be at Coushatta on the 22nd which is the weekend before Thanksgiving. John's birthday is the 21st but he does not like to travel at night so we will leave early Saturday morning and take the back way to Coushatta up 12. Long road with very little on it but it beats going through where they are working on the road right now between 10 and Kinder. My son and his girlfriend have decided to try thier luck too! I can't wait :cool: You all know how I am when I get excited about going somewhere :clown: I wanted to stay at Delta Downs but they won't give me any kind of break on the hotel room. If I have to pay $250 for a room what do I have to gamble with??? :disapprove:
    I think everyone should plan to head to Vegas next June to help celebrate John & my 25th anniversary :cool: :laugh: :)
