    Shadow... we're planning our next great adventure. We'll leave a few days after Labor day heading east. Will pick up the Natchez Trace in Jackson, MS up to Nashville. East to Asheville, then Mrytle Beach, Savannah, Jacksonville, Destin, Mobile, Natchez and up the Trace to Jackson.

    2000 plus or minus miles and 4-6 weeks.

    If any of our RVUSA friends are along this route, lets try to get together.

    Thanks for the invite Jim. Keep us posted as the time draws near. May be able to do part of the trip. Not sure if we could get somebody to feed the critters that long. Hope to be baling some hay around that time. Thats if we get some rain! We did get to go for a week and had a great time. Even missing our turn and having to drive thru the middle of Austin didn't damper our spirit! :laugh:

    No cattle here Chelse. Except for the neighbors cows who keep getting in the pasture. The hay meadow is our play money. We do square bales, so have to be around to load the trailers and put up. Just can't count on a buyer showing up. All you hear is we will be there. Works out though. Once I have to pick it up and stack it the cost goes up. Trying to work something out with the brother in law. The critters are Peacocks and ducks. And of course Shadow our Golden Retreiver. Who's travel days are behind him. :(

    Well just goes to show how my eyes are getting. Don't know how I got cattle out of critters :laugh: Remember this when meeting me on the road :eek: :laugh: Guess I was just assuming that a Texan would have cattle :)

    I square bale also Butch. Only one cutting so far but might get another one in a week or two, then who knows. I remember getting 4 cuttings easily some years but then again that was pre global warming days. Wait...coastal bermuda loves hot weather.

    No cows or horses either...just a dog and two whinning cats.

    Check out the Texas Boomers, you and Shirley might enjoy getting to know some of those good folks.

    Ain't no hotties in my hay meadow! And Chelse, we have a microwave in the cab so we don't have to stop for lunch. Gotta get me one them in motion satellite receivers though. My helper really gets hot and tiried running along side the tractor keeping that dish aimed properly.

    We'll be at Poole Knobs on Percy Priest Lake about 13 miles from Nashville for 2 weeks starting Sept 13th. It's a really nice COE CG right on the lake.

    Wow. We've decided to change our plans and not go as far east as first scheduled. Sounds like a good decision on our part.
