Credit card for purchasing gasoline - check. :o

Actually the exchange rate is very favorable for Canadian travel.  :)
It's the $5 a gallon for fuel that's not so crap hot.  :laugh:

MM be sure the ac is up to snuff. 110 here today. If things go downhill on the first day out, you are always welcome to park on our hill and wait it out. Otherwise at least wave when you go by.. Happy travels

Thanks Jim.  With the threat of Tropical Storm Barry for Saturday and Sunday, I completed the task of loading the camper onto the truck today.  It had already been loaded with our clothes, food, and whatever else. 


 
We could actually leave today, but nothing has changed.  Our blast off is Monday morning.

This is much handier traveling this many miles plus the ferry fares are $34 per foot in length.

Hurricane Barry changed our plans today.  Instead of driving through it Monday, and since we were loaded, and Church got cancelled, we are on our way and are in Mineola TX.

Lynn, 
 
I just looked at your return trip again, you do realize that you will have to stop at Wall Drug in South Dakota and get your cup of water and photo with the dinosaur right?

Thank's guys for the traveling and birthday wishes.  Yes we will make a return visit to Wall Drugs and also to the Corn Palace in Mitchell.

We just finished our Birthday steak at the Big Texan and have stopped for the night.  Leaving 1 days early will allow us more time before the first ferry on the 22nd.

Hey MM
The road trip you and your wife are taking is long and sometimes winding one but it is indeed a beautiful trip. I am not sure when you will meander through this area BUT just so you know my wife and will be in Terrace BC on AAug1 and returning on the 7th. 

If we happen to be in the Terrace area at the same time we could connect there. I think you have my number but if not PM me and I will send it to you.

Safe travels and enjoy your trip!
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

I'd like to see a picture of MM, Bandmill Bandit, & Percy.
That would be a picture of wisdom and experience.

It is my plan to visit Percy while I am there. My son and family are now getting settled in their new home in the area and he has found some land he wants Dad and Mom to "look" at.
30 ish acres of good quality mature trees with a cabin and some decent out buildings. I have my doubts BUT the little lady seems to have found a different hymn book since the grand son moved away. The tunes she is humming are a bit different the last 2 weeks. "There must be something in the water!" Think I've heard that song somewhere.

I am reading all and will respond when I get laptop signal.  

We are in North Ogden Utah for tonight.  If I lived in Utah I would sell my Sawmill and buy a rock grinder.
