My Aerial View

Here is Google Earth's view of my place. This is as close as I can get without it getting blurry. They don't use the same resolution for the boonies.

That's my house with the trampoline. There is also a shiny cigar shaped aluminum thing there now! You'll like Texas. I never thought I would, but I love it here.

All those white squares you can see are trailers. I have 100 of them here. A little perspective from the main highway running N/S to the camp is 1/2 mile. You can seea white square on the river. That is a Hydro dam. Above the dam the river is 30 ft deep and 40 ft wide. The little white line to the right is the property line. I have 30 acres here and 19 is all bush and over 1/2 mile riverfront.

Thanks John I am hoping to get the A/S done in time for next fall and I was feeling energetic today about the maiden voyage and want to meet all my new friends that I talk to here. I would also love to have you come here. I especially would like to look out on the park and see dozens of shiney trailers here. One can always hope at least.

Hey, Chris, looks like a plan!! It looks like letter K is near our place.

There's an RV park about a block from our house, or if the snow is gone we can probably get you into our driveway. Either way it would be great to meet you and see the fruits of your labors in person.

Hopefully by next March we will have the Albatross in fewer pieces. We have lots of room to park living just north of Bismarck. If nothing else you can have a good laugh at our progress or lack thereof-but we will still be working on it for sure.

Lew and ND I may change the direction of the route and head west first all the way to CA, then south to TX and then back north. I have some time to think about it and plan some more. I would be starting out the end of Oct/ early Nov after the park closes and I get it shut down for the winter. I'm thinking it may be better to head west to Wi, Mn, and Nd first before the weather really turns bad. I dunno maybe I'll split the visits up in to two years so I can do it all in better weather. Unfortunately due to the nature of my business I can't camp during the summer.
I'm not feeling that great about it this morning, woke up to another foot of snow this morning and it's pretty cold and windy now. Roads closed and all that mess. Yuck I'm sick of winter.

You know, Chris, I almost suggested you reverse your route so you'd have fall (better) weather while travelling across the northwestern part of the US.

We've had temps in the upper 40's and into the 50's the past week so much of our snow has melted. Now we are supposed got get more snow and freezing rain tomorrow. Nope, winter isn't over quite yet. One of these days, though......

We have plenty of room for you to park in our yard for a few days, Chris. We can give you free elec. and water hookups too. There's a free dump station at the Holiday gas station 2 miles away. There are no campgrounds really close here to Mpls that would be open that late in the fall unless you wanted to drive 20 miles or so from a state park. We would LOVE to have you!

Let me know if you're coming to NorCal... We have room to park. Or give you information on some of the best places to camp on Shasta Lake, Trinity Lake, Lewiston lake, National Parks, etc. Just let me know what you'er wanting to do in Cali.... Dry camping, free camping, casino KOA's, River camping, we have it all in the north end of the state.
