Escapade in Gillette, WY. Here we come!

Only two more days and we will be heading over to Gillette, WY to the Big Escapade. Many of our friends are already there or heading that way. We have been hitting it pretty hard around here and it's time for a little trip. We have been stationary for nearly 3 months here on our “Heaven on a Hill” in the Black hills of South Dakota and we're ready for a vacation. We planned on attending this Rally and not “work” it for a change.... just relax and attend a few seminars of our choice. That will be a switch but it may not happen, as several good friends have already contacted us requesting Volunteer help. We’ll see but I sure would like to enjoy just being a spectator once.

The “Cabin” is ready for us to move into. We got the Satellite TV all installed and Ms. Pat, Megabyte2 and I enjoyed Happy Hour there last night. It sure was nice and comfortable. We’re really anxious to move in but we will wait until we return from the Escapade. Then we will only have about a month before we have to close it up for the Winter and begin our trip South. Around the first of October, we will head towards Florida to visit kids, grandkids and friends before we head to our house in Arizona.

I’m extremely proud to Welcome our latest Follower’s:

We should arrive at the Escapade Saturday about noon. It’s only a little over 100 miles and we’re hoping for a nice comfortable trip. See ya'll there !!

The cabin is looking great. Have fun at Escapade and we will follow along with you on-line to see whether or not you manage to escape the clutches of your volunteer "coordinator" friends. Good luck!!

Travel safe friends and try your best to avoid being drafted as a "volunteer!"

How did you determine how high to mount the flat-screen tv? We recently purchased one, but have it sitting on the old tv stand...would like to mount on wall, but not sure how high up.

Wow, 200 followers, man I don't even have 100. But then you guys are way more interesting than we are just parked at home here in KC.

We so much wanted to attend this year. However, family situations called us back to the east coast. Maybe next year?

Now, you all just relax, attend a few seminars and enjoy good friends and new acquaintances.

We are so sorry that we have not been able to get by to see you since our return to Custer. I have not been feeling well and so we have been staying close to home so that we can try to enjoy the Escapades. We hope to see you there!! Your cabin looks great, you have both done a fantastic job and we know you are going to enjoy it.
