    I've now been out and about for several days.

    The last few weeks the weather has been rain, sleet, snow and sunshine. Temps in the twenties to the mid eighties. I've had flu like symptoms since before new years. Executive decision time...last Tuesday decided to go someplace, anyplace. Spent a few hours loading up the Bounder Tuesday and about as much time convincing Roxie to get out...we're not leaving till tomorrow. Likely story she thought. I think she's got cabin fever too.

    We spent Tuesday night restlessly. Each time I would go to the door she would dang near knock me down....she is not going to be left.

    Pulled out Wednesday headed south. First stop was for fuel. Sure felt good to fill up with $1.999 fuel. Tried to lasso Tex into meeting for some "holier than thou" barbeque but Ms Sally had him lined up for something different.

    Arrived at Spring Creek Park just a little north of Houston. Only 8 spaces with full 50 amp hook ups. Best part is....free for max of 7 days.

    I wanted to drive down to Galveston to see how the recovery is coming. Dang, we Texans are resilient. Did not see nor hear...where's thegovernment or where's my check. In spite of Fema, they are well on their way to recovery. I knowI'm prejudice, but I bet Galveston in 3 1/2 months is further ahead of our neighbors one state over is in 3 years. Of course we're accustom of taking care of ourselves. Just a proud Texans point of view.

    I've spent the rest of my time relaxing and meeting some really nice people.

    I'm leaving in the morning for some other place. Maybe South Padre Island and then to Mexico. The liquor cabinet needs some replenishing after the holidays and the "hot toddies".

    See you on down the road.

    Jim I should have also said that cabin fever is sitting in on everyone. The weather is cooperating as it been quite warm here middle GA. sometimes it been in the high 70 and low in the low 50. I have been doing some prep work on mine and found one of the cabinet doors has come loose so I had to re glue it and put in a brace to keep it straight and square until it dried. I also ck the house batteries making sure they do dry up, I have 2 gallons of spring water t keep them full. take care and come on over to the chat line when u can. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Hey Jim it's cold in Texas. We are back from our interlude in Ohio and spent a cold morning in Fredericksburg. I hope we didn't bring the cold weather with us.

    Glad you are getting out and having some fun. We would like to get over to Galveston/Beaumont area to see how they are doing. We haven't been over that way for about 3 years. We leave here in Feb so guess we will head Easterly before going North for spring.

    I get to go to work every day M - F, so at least I get out of the house some! I just went outside for the first time today - to do my recycling and trash chores. We had a delayed opening on Tuesday due to ice the weather folks were calling for but never came. We had a dusting of snow on Thursday. My weekends are very different in the off season, for sure.

    Glad to see so many people getting the itch and wanting to hit the roads again. I feel dormant sitting here doing nothing waiting for the RV and Vacation show to start. Cant wait for the time to come either when we hit the roads again for some place different. Been here a month and it feels like months. Month and a half more and Im on the road again.

    Re: cabin fever

    Should have left this morning. going to around 10 here tonight. :angry:
    Shadow, I would try it with the MH but mine is loaded before I start. Hmmm, 50 gallons in the fresh water, 50 in the gray and 50 in the black would come under the fully loaded specs. What about it Hollis? You are in the general area where we use to go. :laugh: :laugh:
