I thought the Mustang rally was happening this week. That starts next week I guess but I will not be here for that. I guess its a pretty big deal out here.

Alright. Decided this AM…Heading back to The LuckyStrike Rehabilitation Center in Florida ;). Heading out Sunday.

going to get my other knee done, hang out for a bit with AJ and then head to Texas for a bit.
this is actually a good time to get out of Dodge, South Dakota just reported a 6 fold increase in covid cases...

If your path goes through Dallas at some point, look up us Dallas Chapter RDP’ers. Having a beer or two and hearing about your travels would be cool.

safe travels back to Florida. Luckystrike’s hospitality sounds like it’s second to none!

F U C K…..

Just woke up from a short nap. Looked outside as it was all dark. Checked out the weather page:

.severe thunderstorm warning. Potential 1.5” hail, rain and strong winds. Damage to vehicles, animals and people if outside. Lots of booms going on right now with rain starting.

Ok. Got lucky and didnt get the full brunt of this. Its possible we will get some more but its calmed down right now. Part of being out here in this region but I have been pretty lucky during this trip weather wise. Well…the start in Texas was intense but I have been lucky since

Good the storm didn’t give you a full can of whoop ass. Hope those classic cars have protection or storm is light over Deadwood.

It might have hit them......It seems to have come from that direction. Regardless I bet you there was some mad scrambling going on over there

Right around 8500.....Suspect by the time I get back to Cave Creek area I will be about 16-17K miles for this year traveling.

I am getting the pics down now :)

I leave tomorrow but need to time everything so stay behind that hurricane. I need it to keep moving quickly and I will be patient. Probably end up hunkering down in Iowa as it clears.

Back in IA now and hunkered down for a bit till that residual storm stuff passes from the hurricane south of here.

well…I have been up for the past hour with Roxy scared shitless and cowering. A pretty good size thunderstorm has been booming with lots of lighting and rain. I always have loved storms but it gets a little un-nerving when in a 5th wheel or trailer.

i just hope no hail falls on us.

coffee at 2:30am local time? Thinking about it. Lol

Good for you, I do the same thing, when I get it I will either recuperate or die, fairly simple.

Let me know if you make it down anywhere near LOTO. We have 2 rv hookups at our house & plenty of room.

made my coffee shortly after that post. I suspect Roxy will be sleeping a lot today….lol. She freaks out when storms roll in and didnt get any sleep last night.

we just took a walk. I suspect we got 2” from apx 1:30AM. Everything is washed down real good.

yes sir. I wanted to head West but the damn fires and smoke made me nix that. Heading back to FL and waiting for all the hurricane residual storms to move north then I will head down behind them.
