The 2013 Freezefest

Hey Gang

A very late review and thank you. Why do I even include late? You guys know me by now.

The 2013 Freezefest went perfecto! 14 people showed. It always hovers around that number.

Paul volunteered to arrive early and lend a hand setting up. We arrived about 2:30 and by 5:30 the tarps were hung by the chimney with care in hopes of friends would soon be there....whoops got carried away. It takes that long to prepare and get things ready.

We had more than enough…

Tennessee Part 6

Well.... we survived our harrowing experience of the 82 scenic drive, from here is should be all down hill or maybe I should say down mountain.



Our next route is Rt. 60. I wanted to escape heading northeast because of the pending snow so decided 60 west to 23 north through Kentucky and Ohio would be safer. Kentucky? Yes, I wanted to take the long cut home.

If…

Cook Forest part 2

The park chaplain came by this morning to invite us to Sunday service in the park and we got to talking about the Rangers that stopped last night and the Bus. The guy in the next site heard us and came over. He said I'm a lawyer and when I saw the rangers talking to you and looking inside your vehicle last night I thought to myself this guy needs a lawyer but when they left I stayed put, now I know what happened.



The part of Cook Forest we are at is nice and the old growth pines are… Continue

Cook Forest, Pa. - part 1

A Pennsylvania rangers patrol car stops abruptly, two rangers get out with flashlights, they march up to me rather quickly and say OH you're not in any trouble we just wanted to see your vehicle.



Rewind. A week and a half ago I asked Nick you want to go camping? I called Cooks Forest in Pa they had two spot lefts. I grabbed one and made plans. I tried to rally a few people into going but you know what, I am tired of cheer leading so it was me and Nick and that's alright by me. Nicks… Continue

Back from Cook Forest, Pa. - intro

Hey Gang,

Just returned from a 3 day escape to Cooks Forest. A quickly planned trip. For the most part things went well. It was a quieter trip, a trip to unclutter the mind as the camp chaplain said.



I saw things and areas that I have never been to before. And its not that far from my home, about 160 miles away. Not sure why I never went before. Maybe the high price of gas is good, its keeping me closer to home – yeah right.



It really is disturbing what has happened… Continue

not travel related but i bet you feel my pain

Hey Gang,



Boy oh boy I tell you, with all the other problems we have going on add customer service to the list of things gone wrong. This is my actual chat I had with the Western Union online help center.



I was trying for hours to send money through the computer using Western Union and it wouldn't let me so finally I tried the HELP. When I was done I needed help as in mental help from going crazy because of W. Union.





I have posted other fun stuff on my… Continue

Jimco Rally Part 2

This is part 2, I didn't have access to the internet so I wrote this on my laptop after the bonfire gathering

____________________________



Hey Gang,

Everyone woke fairly early at Jimco's. I finally got up at about 9am. Made coffee first then opened the doors. OH there's my keys. I left them in the door lock again. Gee someone could of got in and taken me for a real ride.



I missed the morning breakfast with the gang so I ate cereal. Then everyone started coming up to… Continue

Jimco Rally Part 1

I didn't have access to the internet so posting about the Jimco rally now.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Hey Gang,

Well I made it. I made it to the JIMCO Vintage RV rally in Thompson. It was tough trying to get everything together as the GoGo Bus just 2 weeks ago went in for surgery to repair rot. I only got it back 10 days ago and besides polishing and cleaning from not using it in such a long time I had to replace the… Continue

concluding my Texas trip

Hey Gang,

Just wanted to conclude my Texas trip with some additional thoughts and sum it up.



I was quite amused by the 6 day weather forecast. It read 95 - 94 - 96 - 98 HOT - 96 - 95.

98 Hot? What is 95 and 96 a cold front?



I was saddened, which I guess I shouldn't be any more but I was, to see the same old same old corporate stores and restaurants we have here in Ohio. Just looking at the freeway exits it could be Anywhere USA.



I haven't seen all of… Continue

Texas 5

Hey Gang,

OK where was I?



We woke about 10 and met for breakfast in the hotels restaurant. After breakfast we split up. I went with Walt and the girls to go to Natural Bridge Caverns. That's one thing about traveling with Walt, there is never a spare minute, he fills up every second with something to do or see.



Natural Bridge Caverns was just awesome. The descent was over 200 feet down and some of the large rooms had 50 foot ceilings. The temperature was about 78 with… Continue

Texas 4

Well the day wasn't that bad after all, in fact it was great. I stayed behind at the hotel and slept in till about 11:30 while they went to Six Flags.



I did some emails and then headed to a restaurant close to the hotel called The Egg and I. A bit expensive but it was good food.



I went back to the hotel and asked for a shuttle to downtown San Antonio. The hotel doesn't give rides to downtown only to the park n ride. I never rode a bus before alone and was clueless to what… Continue

Texas 3

Hey Gang,

I felt so at home at the condo maybe too at home. This morning Jami knocked on our door to give us the keys which I left in the door knob over night. A habit I have.



We left the condo and went to the Lone Star aviation museum. Quite interesting. Down the road was the Moody Gardens, the name is a fooler as it has little to do with gardens. We went to the aquarium which was nice. After that we headed towards San Antonio.



We made a mistake because we left the… Continue

Texas 2

Last night after Walt returned from racket ball we went to one of the pier's on the Galveston break wall.



It's quite long and elevated about 20 feet. In the middle of the pier is a small convenience store that sells snacks, beer and bait. If you want to go to the fishing pier or observation deck its 2 bucks unless you purchase something.



We met a 25 year old lady who struck up a conversation with us. I mention her age only because her knowledge of issues was quite… Continue

Texas 1

Hey Gang,



I am in Texas with Walt's family on a 5 day escape. The trip is a graduation present for Walt's son Jimmy. Jimmy graduated from the 8th grade on the honor roll and received a scholarship. For a present Jimmy picked where he wanted to go.



I was a little apprehensive about leaving because of how busy I am but I couldn't disappoint .Jimmy really wanted me to come along plus all the planning Walt put into the trip' I couldn't say no.



The flight to Huston… Continue
