Everything is falling in place

Just a short update.  Received a call this morning that my MH was finished.  Picked it up and ran down and had the propane tank filled.  The wind was horrible!  Had gusts up to 50 mph.  So glad I'm not traveling today.

I'm now ready to pack.  I've locked down my departure date to Monday, December 2nd, after all the holiday traffic has died down.

After studying the maps, I have decided to head straight south on I-55 and spend the first night somewhere near Memphis, TN.  They are calling for a nice sunny day and only a low of 34 for the night.

The second day will get me to Tyler, TX in the evening to meet friends and spend the night there.  After that I'm not sure what happens.  Will plan that later.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I'm thankful that George is feeling better, eating better and enjoying a beer.

See you later.

  2. I'm also one of the folks in rooting for George and Suzie. Maybe will have a needed healing power, at least it doesn't hurt. Safe travels!

    1. We never know what positive thoughts can do. George is so positive it rubs off on me.

  3. Like your fiery sunrise/sunset header photo. Nothing like a healthy dose of excitement mixed with a nice blend of sobering apprehension to steady one for the long and sometimes unknown journey ahead. All the best Doug and I'll be riding shotgun with ya:))

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you two. Hoping the holiday crowds will be gone Monday. First couple of days will be interstates so I can get used to driving again.

    1. Maybe next year. I'm glad my next year came to be. I'm glad my MH told me something was wrong before getting on the road. Been a great MH so far. Hope Yuma adjusts to the rough life. Dolly has spoiled him.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Dolly. We have so much to be thankful for and this lifestyle of meeting new friends is one huge one.

  8. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bill. I'm not sure Yuma is going to like it the first couple days when at the end of the day he doesn't see home. Good health is something we all are thankful for. Hoping George gets stronger each day.

  10. Love the header photo.
    Glad to hear things are fixed and you are getting closer to heading out for the warmth of the desert again. I'm sure Yuma will be excited to head out and just as excited as ever to get reacquainted with the smells of the desert.
    Happy Thanksgiving you and Dolly and the entire family.
    Safe travels Doug!!!
