We are stopped at Vicksburg, Ms. We stayed at this campground about 2007 for a Yars rally. Nice campground not to far of the I 20. Tomorrow we will head to TX. Figure on stopping somewhere between the state line and Dallas. Not sure if we can make it to Donna the next day or not. Sure will be glad to get there so we can relax and not have to get up so early every morning. So far the weather has been good It is 64 degrees here at 8:15 Have wifi here Makes it nice. And pretty cheap too. We went to a Mexican restaurant tonight. The food was good but the waiter was terrible. After he brought to food never saw him till we were ready to leave. I had to ask another waiter for some to go boxes and then the guy brought the bill. Didn't get much tip. Well guess that's about it for tonight  Linda have a safe trip south. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli on the road to the valley

We are near Birmingham tonight Got here about 3 this afternoon. We went to a Wal mart and got a universal remote for the TV ion the bedroom. I picked up the wrong one at home. Pretty cheap and works. Tomorrow we head west. We had a pretty good trip today. It is 45 right now. It was up to 59 when we got here this afternoon. We ate at a cracker barrel.  Thanks Kristin. She gave us a gift card for Christmas. Didn't want it to get lonely so used it. Good meal and great waitress. Not sure where we will stop tomorrow. Maybe just drive till about 3 and then look for campground  That's about it for tonight Thelma has just gone to bed and I'm about ready too.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

In Tennesee

We are in Tennessee tonight. Not very warm Outside thermometer says 30. A lot of trailers and mh here. This must be the stopping place on the way down. Some are headed to Florida and some to Texas. A couple are from Canada. One i talked to was from Anderson in. Tomorrow we head to Birmingham. Hope it is warmer . We went to a waffle house for supper. Pretty good. We just had sandwiches as when we got fuel at a flying j we each got a big piece of pizza. We hadn't had pizza for quite a while. It was a meat lovers. Gooood. Eli didn't like that as he couldn't have any.  We drove 397 today. We don't like to do that much but to get where it is supposed to be warmer you have to. We are now on Central time. Need to change the puter I guess.  Guess that's it for tonight Later all

Tomorrow is leaving day

Tomorrow morning we leave this cold and head south. Hoping to get started by 7:00 We packed the trailer today Gary came out and helped carry stuff out  and Thelma put the stuff away. Only took about an hour or less. We will have a Few thing to put in the truck in the morning. Turn off the hot water heater in house turn down thermostat in house.We set it at 50 That's about as low as the stat will go. We have so much stuff we are taking. If it was in the summer we would not be gone so long and wouldn't take quite as much. Also not sure just what the weather will be Hoping it is warm. That's about it for tonight will probably update tomorrow night from Nashville. Tn. Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Thought I would update here tonight. Eli is doing good. He is eating food again. Cesar dog food and sometimes hamburger. He is still getting antibiotics for a couple more days. We went to the legion tonight out north and picked up Jack Blomback's mother and took her with us. Had a nice visit. Still not sure exactly which we are going. Might go straight south to Alabama and then head west from there. The weather is not very helpful, Looking at the five day forecast it is not going to warm up much. Not sure it is going to be very warm at Nashville where we usually stop the first night. I guess we will have to wait and see.  That's about it from here.  Let you all know when we get on the road.   Ron Thelma and Eli

Bad day for eli

Today Eli had a dental appootment. He lost 7 teeth. 4 of them fell out when they started cleaning/ He is laying on the couch with Thelma. He is really whipped out. I think by tomorrow he will be in better shape.  Yes we will have to start the furnace in the camper before we start packing. Probably about the Thursday before Christmas. Will have stuff sitting in the living and dining room. Should be fun trying to have dinner here and stuff all over. I wish we had left earlier. Hope it warms up a little Last year it was pretty nice when we got ready to leave. Now we have snow on the ground I'm ready to head south far south. Glad we are not going to Fl. as it is could there. The valley in Texas is around 70 -80 deg right now.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Not much new

We are still around. We have not done much other than Thanksgiving dinner. We had Gary, Lisa and Kristin and Violet and Sherryl came up. They did not have any place to go so asked if they wanted to come up. Sherryl was to bring aluminium cans but then forgot them. We had a good time. Gary slept most of the afternoon/ We are getting ready for our trip south. Can't put anything out in the camper yet. We will pack some the day before Christmas and on Christmas day. We hope to leave on the 26th. Guess that's about it for now. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli
