Lonely......

Well....

The park is quite desolate. I have two neighbors in the north park with me (2 Work Campers). We set everything up and deployed awnings, but rain is heading our way so I need to drop them. The park is so short staffed, and there are really only two or three paying campers, so the shops are closed at 5 PM.

When we were here in the fall we had much more foliage than currently, but we don't have the acorn bombs that are dropping all over the place making a BANG sound.

They had Billberk scheduled for camping starting tonight, so I think they changed it after I said he wasn't expected till Thursday or Friday.

Grish....I didn't see you coming the other direction. While passing Strafford we admired the new Camping World, so we were looking the other way. Feel free to come visit us since you are so close .

It is a possibility that out BBQ cookoff is going to be covered in a story for a national magazine publication. I don't have a ton of info, but it looks like it will go through.

We will see you all when you get here in the next few days. See you then.

Steve

osolow, you're doing like us last year! Don't worry--there's plenty of fun on Saturday to make up for it!

I got to get a part for the hot water heater, will be buying it at Thomas RV here in Springfield,

Hooked the water up last night, no leaks.

I did leave 4 cans of beer in the fridge over the winter, they came through ok, the four cans of root beer exploded and broke the plastic shelf retainer, and spewed root beer all over the inside of the ice box.

I hard boiled 4 dozen eggs last night in the house (Regina was at work) and I lit candles, sprayed lysol air freshener, openned all the doors and windows trying to disipate the smell of the boiling eggs.

My 2 grandsons came over (they live next door to us, we are so lucky) and told me my house smelled. They like hardboiled eggs, so we had a semi- Cool Hand Luke contest. I ate 1, Austin didn't finish one and Trey ate two. He was proclaimed the winner.

My house stunk for a while but I had some wonderful fun with my grandsons. Austin is 8, Trey is 10.

My hot water heater flame has no force to it, it just flames like a piece of paper burning, I am thinking the control regulator has gone bad, so I am off to get a new one.

James and I are leaving out early tomorrow it will take us 6 hours to arrive in Branson. May have to stop a time or two.

Sunday we are to meet a guy in Ozark, MO at Lamberts Cafe and pick up a Dragster (14') for our son. It is a kids Dragster they have to be 9yr old for competition (granddaughter). This is not grandma's idea of fun for a little girl.

I put the soup on this morning James is watching the crock pot. I found a cobbler at the store so I will cook it tonight. The fun is to see if we can get to Branson without spilling soup and cobbler all over the backseat of the pickup.

See ya all about noon Friday.

PS I am bringing my album book of our AS project and what a mess we have it in. It will be done by the October Branson Rally.

You might also want to check for spider webs. You will get the same symptom.

just finished up the last few thing that i can get done before the rally. it's been a long day but i got it all done, with the help of my cousin matt.
Hes not happy he was wanting to ride down and check out all the airstreams and possible camp out Sat night. But unfortunatly he got called in to work the weekend. So i told i would take lots of Pics so he can see all the fun he missed.
other then that the whole gang and i should be leaving joplin after work and will get there when we get there. Every body have a safe trip down and will see you ether tomorrow night or Sat some time.

Well, as Tornados flew all around us last night, Westfalia and wilkeytn stayed here on the lot.

We did give them a key to the showroom if they needed to take shelter and I think when the sirens went off here in town, they ran for cover.

Glad to report NO damage to anything around here.

So, here's a song just for those two Airstream troopers!

Hey Gene, thanks for the keys!!! It was much more preferable the watch the storm from inside the dealership than the obscured windows in the trailer.

We survived the storms in Searcy. We were in the direct path of tornadoes last night that hit north Little Rock. The tornadoes sirens went off at 12:00 and 12:15. Fortunately, the tornadoes had dissapated before hitting us, but still, we had a MASSIVE amount of rain, lightning and wind

WilkeyTN, the dogs and myself evacuated the trailers and hunkered down in the dealership. If it came down to it, we figured we'd hide amongst the sewer hoses and Silver Joes coffee.

I'm waiting to see how the storms move about today before I hit the road. The boys in the shop or still tweaking a few last items anyway.
