Were Home

We got home around 3 this afternoon. Made a couple of stops on the way. One was arbys. Eli likes roast beef. I did not get a picture of Eli yet. Will take one later this week and post it. I was going to do when we got back to the camper but did something else and it flew by the way. Here are a few that I took. I will upload the rest later this week and put a link on here.
This is one of the dogs. She loved playing in the leaves. Was so funny.

Here is the young ones dressed up for their parade. They were cute.

Here is one of the decorated pumpkins. Not as many this year as others

Here is the winning decorated trailer. They spent half a day doing it. They won 25 dollars. Probably got 100 or more invested

Okay that is it for tonight  Thelma has labs tomorrow   Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Busy day

We were kept busy today. It is now 10:30 and I am about ready for bed. I will post some pictures tomorrow night after we get home. We have church in the morning and then will put away the decorations we have out and get everything else packed up and head home. This is it for this year. Darn. Sure has been a good year camping with our friends in Indiana  and Ohio. Today was a beautiful day. The kids did trick or treat this afternoon and also had their contest. They had a pet parade  this morning. Thelma put Eli in and he got a blue ribbon. Only 4 dogs in it. If there had been more we would not have put him in it . He was real good.That's it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Right weekend

WE arrived today about 12:00. There are quite a few of us here already. Those that have to work yet will be here later. Not sure how many are here Will find out later this evening. Nothing is going on till this evening for hospitality. It starts at eight. We will probably go out to the airport for supper later. We used to eat out there at least once a week when we lived here for 14 yrs. Tomorrow is a pretty full agenda. Games and trick or treat. Judging for costumes and evening meal. Well that's it for today  Later  all Ron Thelma and Eli

Home already

How do you know your getting old. When you put down the wrong weekend for a campout. I had put down this weekend for the Halloween campout over in Ohio. We got there this afternoon and saw a sign at the entrance to the fairground about a dog show. Thought oh oh. We don't camp there when they are there. Sure enough when we got on the grounds I went to where I wanted to park. There was no other campers there. There was the grounds guy who was blowing leaves off the road. Talked to him he said you here for the dog show  Nope. Is there camping group coming in.  Not till next weekend. So we turned around and came  home. Don't have the camper unhooked yet. It was dark by the time we got back from grabbing a bite to eat . Will unhook in morning and get some stuff out for the week. Will try again next week Well that is it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Leaving tomorrow

We will be leaving sometime tomorrow for Ohio. This is just a weekend thing. We are going in a day early. This is a halloween campout with the Ohio FCRV group. We always enjoy camping with them. We try and make as many of theirs that we can each year. Tonight we went out to our local campground and visited with our friends from Ky and also a good friend that spends his time either here or TX. We will be leaving on MOnday to head down that way. He will be in the campground that we stayed at last year. In fact the same lot. It was good visiting with him. Need to do it more next year. We were in a camping club here in the fort together. In fact were charter members.  Well that is it for tonight  More from Ohio tomorrow.  Later  Ron Thelma and Eli

Fall work

We have been busy the last few days. Trying to get things ready for winter. I worked on the pool yesterday and again today. Trying to get it clear and vacuumed. Hoping to get the cover on Sunday. We went out to our local campground where some friends are staying for a couple of weeks. Had campfire both nights. We stayed home this evening Today we did some shopping. Got fuel in the truck this morning and then took the car. It was 3;08 with my walmart card. This afternoon it was 3:28 with the card. Went up 20 cents in about 5 hours. Now that is a bunch of bull. And that is putting it nicely. Well that is it for tonight. We have one more weekend to go camping and then done till we head south right after Christmas. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

We are home

We arrived home about 5:30 or so. Had to make two tries to get backed in. I have to hit the driveway just right or can't make it in without hitting the mailboxes. They replaced the landing jack after they found it. They had forgotten that we had ordered it and it was in the special order place. They could not find a hydraulic leak. They think we got air in the lines when we were sitting with front so high at Johnson County park. They worked good for them. Tomorrow we will get some of the stuff out and I will try them. They think we have a leak on the rear holding tank. It is the kitchen one. Wouldn't be surprised. We will take it back later in Oct or Nov to have that checked and also have them work on the brakes. Want them replaced before we head south. Well we have a lot to do this next couple of weeks before we hit the road for a four day weekend. You can have them when you are retired  Right ? That is it for tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Trailer Dealer Campground

We are at Walnut Ridge campground for work on the trailer tomorrow. We shall see how they do. If it is crappy I will post on the Montana owners website. We have a new landing jack to be put on  Also we have a hydraulic leak on the living room slide. They said they could fix it too tomorrow. Hope we don't have to spend the whole day here. This morning we went to get breakfast at McDonald's. I had to scrape ice off the windshield. Glad I had a scraper in the back seat. After the board meeting we were going with another two couples  to get something to eat. One guy had left his keys in his truck and it wasn't turned all the way off. It drained the battery. So his clicker to open it wouldn't work. Had the police come and they got the hood handle to pull the hood latch and we got the hood open. Finally got it started and he left it run while we went to eat. The cop told him not to leave his keys in it. Evidently they have had some problems there. Well Think I will get off and put this away. We need to get up as our appointment is at 9:00 in the morning. We will then go and get breakfast and loaf till they get done.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Tomorrow is leaving day

In the morning we have Church at 9 and then right after that we have a board meeting and then we will hook up and leave for New Castle. Stay there Sun night and on Monday we have appointment to have our right landing leg replaced and also to have a hydraulic hose fixed for the living room slide. It will go out but not in so have to get a couple of guys to help push it in. The alpacas Thelma was feeding are the mothers. The babies are still feeding from mom. They are still a little shy of humans. They were so much fun.We might do it again in a couple of years. If we have enough new people next year we might do it then. Hope to get home Monday afternoon. I need to get some work done around the house before it freezes. Clean the pool and get it covered and get A/Cs out of the windows. We have one more campout yet . That will be at Urbana Ohio for a Halloween campout. It is in two weeks. That will be it for this year till we leave for Florida. Well that is it for tonight.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli
