Let us know when you're heading to beaver creek, I have to request time off a week or so in advance, otherwise, I'll just have to pop by and say hello if I have a day off where I can visit with ya before ya leave.

Mjgcamper, we need to have another of our breakfast gettogether's here sometime this week or something, I'm on vacation until saturday this week.



Yes that'd be good, except I have to go out and up the road and cut branches off the trees to get ready for Jerry's Big Ol' Honkin' Motorhome to come in. It's not bad, I just set up a ladder on my flatbed and cut and haul branches up and down the road. Just a few is all.

How about breakfast when Jerry is here?..... if we can get'em outa' bed he he


Jerry there is inquiring minds about the e.t.a. to Beavercreek................. I know, the more we push ya for a date the more ya hate the train schedule. Just do your best my friend.

Shawn, Glad you like the pics, I enjoy sharing with all! Thursday I will go see Dean & Carol (Bubba) on Camano Island, then Saturday there will be a bunch of us going to breakfast as we were not able to get a camping site for everyone. Saturday afternoon I'll head to Gig Harbor to see Rich & Sylvia (Richc).

See what you started Tim! Now I will have to 'work' my way down the coast……

Hey, my Big Ol' Honkin' Motorhome is only 10'6" high, that's shorter than mos TC rigs… but thanks for looking out for me, cYa soon

After I get to Rich's house I'll have a good idea of when I'll be down your way, that is unless he has a lot of 'work' for me to do…….

We had a great dinner, smoked salmon and bean dip/chips for appetizers, a perfectly grilled steak, baked potato salad and a great green salad and a choice of three cakes and icream for dessert (and I didn't even have to cut the lawn!) Picture of dinner wasn't that great, I'll try again tomorrow.

Well Budster left this morning. What a great person he is indeed. We enjoyed his company very much, and was a pleasant addition to the family while he stayed.

We loved his s-t-r-e-t-c-h all aluminum tc..... or mo'home rather. Lots of apparant quality in a rig like that.

We also enjoyed Matt and his friend Mason, Jim and Sandy for the evening too.

It was fun, but, my skills as a host are terrible sometimes. Need to take a 'host class' from Bob Mehrer sometime.

Thank you everyone, Mike

What a great time I had at Jim & Sandy’s, this is getting hard to see old friends then have to say goodbye again. Just got a message from another friend just south of here who want’s me to stop by. Joanie is beginning to wonder if I’ll ever be home.



Arrived at Mike & Janel’s home in the trees. It is good seeing them after our first meet three years ago in the truck camper caravan. Mike grilled up some flat iron steaks (really great and tender) Janel cooked a great meal if green beans, fresh corn on the cob, cheese bread, cake and pie, wow I am full. Then Matt (JoeChiOki) and his friend Mason showed up. I gave Matt the bug screen that I carried from Ogallala where Tim gave it to me for Matt.
