I feel like Iâ€™ve been really busy this past week or more; but could not, for the life of me, tell you exactly what Iâ€™ve been doing.
Iâ€™ve told myself to post at least a dozen times. Then get off doing something until, suddenly, itâ€™s past bedtime.And I know â€œpast bedtimeâ€ cause I get woozy and really tired feeling until I go lay down.
So, letâ€™s see. Hmmmâ€¦ Bought a Full mattress for the Caravan. One of those nice mattresses being sold at Walmart. Was $169 but it fits perfectly and is WAY more comfortable than that â€œpadtressâ€ that was in there. Going to make the trip much better.
Speaking of trip: Been getting ready and loading the RV. Leaving Sunday and SWMBO will join me in Memphis later.Hope the Hollie Family Reunion is worth all this.
Hooked the RV up to the new truck the other day for a â€œtest drive.â€ I was impressed. The hill leaving Belfair going to Gorst was no problem. Did a U-Turn in Gorst and came back up that mile (or so) upgrade with no problems. Started out at 3500 rpmâ€™s from a red light but by the time I got a quarter mile up the road it downshifted, the rpmâ€™s dropped to 1500, and we did the thing at 55 mph. Nice! Still reeling from $600/mo payments, but, nice.
So, looking forward to the trip but hate leaving SWMBO behind. She makes everything so much better. I probably wonâ€™t stop and see anything that Iâ€™d want us to see together but I think itâ€™ll still be a good trip. Weâ€™ll see. I do like her navigation though.
Otherwise, just not a lot going on. Iâ€™m doing this on the virtual machine cause my windows machine is down for awhile. The cheap assed laptop dvd drive they put in it went TU. X-Plane canâ€™t find the DVD so itâ€™ll only play in demo mode for 10 minutes before the nag screen starts. Ordered a new drive but it wonâ€™t be here until sometime between 26 Aug and 26 Sep. Which is totally unacceptable in todayâ€™s market. Hell, it was 4 days between ordering and notice that itâ€™s been shipped.
More later. Will TRY to keep yâ€™all updated while on the trip. Canâ€™t promise anything though.
