  1. At the end of the day, you (the driver) have to be responsible for backing up or pulling in, even if you have to stop, get out and look a dozen times. I learned this lesson the hard way... Several years ago we were maneuvering around a campground on Lake Norman in the Charlotte area. A place where the loops are on so much of a slope and the turns so sharp that you have to pull in, back up and continue to work your way down the hill. I was making my last sharp turn and a guy who worked for the campground was standing at the front right corner of the motorhome motioning me to pull forward. Well, this guy motions me right into the riprap (large rocks) stacked along the bank. It scratched the paint and gouged the front fiberglass fender just ahead of the front wheel. Once I heard and felt it hit, I got out and asked him why he guided me into the rocks that were 5 feet in front of him... He just shrugged his shoulders and gave me a blank look. Luckily the campground owner split the cost of the repairs, but boy did I learn my lesson! Always get out and assess your situation before moving something as large as a camper!
  2. Hey Tony, Just wanted to let you know that I can see the flowers picture you posted on September 3, but can't see this last pic you posted. I have tried to view it through Chrome and IE and neither is showing. Not sure what everyone else's experiences are...

    Where to eat Christmas dinner???

    Nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus, than some crab legs and mussels swimming in butter...! You could always check out the Cape May Clambake. We did that one year when we down for Thanksgiving!

    IT'S 7/11 !!!!!!!

    To my knowledge there is not a 7-Eleven in our area... However it is my daughter's birthday today, so I have always referred to her as my convenience store baby. Plus its an easy way for me to remember her birthdate.
  7. Since I am a fan of train wrecks, and just can't look away, I just had to click on the website to satisfy my curiosity.... Now that my eyes have stopped burning, I'll know better next time not to click on the photos section of a nudist resort website!

    Toy Story Land Opening Day

    I read somewhere else that the theming and attention to details were pretty awesome. They did mention that there was really no shade anywhere and that it was pretty hot back in that part of the park. I think the way they described it was it as "Animal Kingdom hot". They also mentioned that there was no real place to duck into or find cover in the event of the "Florida downpours".

    Most excellent trip report Nacole! I thoroughly enjoy tagging along with you and the fam... Now that you have tackled the "southern" route out west, now its time to plan the "northern route! I hope you guys enjoy Disney and the weather is forever in your favor!
  11. Derek, I will go with you! Does anyone know how much they charge to ride that thing?

    We are doing well! Ashleigh just graduated from college and is looking for a J.O.B. So far after our breakdown, the MH has managed to continue to run very well. I am hoping that you have the same experience and you guys have no more issues with your rig. We are headed back to the Fort in September. We are playing the role of ambassador/tour guide for some friends we work with in the Children's Ministry at our church. They are bringing down their kids and grandkids. I'm sure our paths will cross somewhere down the road!

    Hey Friend! I have following along since you left GA (on this TR of course)! I am loving the report so far and would love to do the same thing one day. You continue to be my HERO with your courage to step out and take on a trip like this with you and the kiddos... I feel your pain around your "break down" event... We felt the same way last year broke down on the side of 417 in Orlando waiting for the tow truck to arrive. Can' wait to hear more of your adventures!
