Merry Christmas to all our Friends & Family


Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year !!

We had planned to spend the holidays in Texas a first for use. Well that didn’t happen as we are still home. Marti had Cataract surgery in Nov. well things didn’t go good as her sight was blurred. Well we have been seeing a couple Dr’s. Mari’s sight is getting better so we are thankful for that. We are hoping to roll out to Texas in early January.   

We had some problems with our Jayco Designer. I was told the undercarriage was wore out. I had a real problem with that too. Well the dealer was great as we were out of warranty. We had to replace one of the axles and all four tires. I’m wondering if there are more problems to come with the Texas & Alaska trips.   

Well with all this spare time I had to drive Marti every where (No Problem) Well I said why don’t we stop to look at a new trailer. Well I liked the Mobile Suites and our local RV dealer started carrying them. We both liked the 38 foot model a bit pricey but we like it. I guess that was a Dumb move on my part as, we both have bitten by the New Trailer Bug. I ‘m just not sure how this will work out, I guess time will tell.

Hitch Itch Need to Roll Out



We toured the East Coast in September and October. We had a problem on the way home a Flat Tire, hey no problem. We got off thee road at the next exit. We bought a Pressure Pro Monitoring System last year at the Gypsy Journal Rally. Well on the trip I had a problem with a sensor call the factory they said send it back.

Well the system alerts us of any low pressures, a good thing as we parked the rig and still had 45 psi on the tire. I changed the tire to find Steel Belts showing there faces. We got rolling again in an hour, I know I won’t make it to a Nascar team. 

Well I thought take the trailer back to Campland RV for a check up. To my surprise we had some wore out parts. Their tech asked if we Off Roaded with the Jayco ?? I wondered if I just Looked Stupid !!! Well that’s about right as we were 39 day’z out of Warranty. I called Jayco and a couple weeks later with a lot of help from Carra at Campland. Jayco took care of almost everything. Today I took care of Tires with four new Shoes. Did I tell you I’m ready to roll out.

We are ready to roll but will be home for a while as Marti had Cataract surgery and has had some problems. Well I guess they will be doing some more surgery to clean up the Blob. Hey that’s what they call it.

Of course the Headlines are Marti had a Great Check-up as she was Cancer Free !!! Marti has Beat Cancer Five Times at a Girl !!!

We did do a few things when we got home. I went out for tires for the trailer and bought a new Truck. I know what was wrong with the other one. I would have to say nothing. Yep I traded in a 2008 Ford with 57,000 miles. Well they did give me a great deal. I will say I really like this new ride. Marti Love it as it has Heated Seats and they have A/C Seats too. The main reason for the truck was the mileage. Chuck & Kim, Les & Jan our friends just got new Fords and love them too. I was really impressed with the mileage on Les’s truck. The Old Black Pig Never got close to that. I guess the saying goes out with the Old and in with the New.


Well we went from Black to Blue and Yes I named the truck Old Blue !!



                           Well That’s All Folks

                 Merry Christmas

Today we had to say Good Bye to our Cat Blackie. We rescued him and his sister from under our deck, as they were new bourn's. We everyone said Don’t Feed them. Well everyone knows I don’t listen very well and yep next thing they were in the house. Well I really don’t like Cats as I’m a dog person. Well eighteens years of old Blackie and we had a Love affair with him as he loved riding in the truck and the RV.

  Well we moved on from Myrtle Beach. Friends Les & Jan followed us on down. We parked in a KOA park in Richmond Hill Ga. We are about 14 miles from Savannah.


Everyone took a Trolley ride around the city. The lady drivers drove like they stole it. The ride was all thru the historical area and of course the Shopping District.
