And the journey continues,,,
« on: December 22, 2007, 06:10:26 AM »
This morning we'll be continuing our run to florida, heading out from Busted Knuckles place on our way to Jack's and the ralley.  We've met some great people here, BK and his mom and dad have treated us like family and we looking forward to coming back here to visit.  Dallas and cat headed out on their round the world tour yesterday, we enjoyed visiting with them.  My bus is running great, I'm thinking I'll have to drag a boat anchor to slow me down and probably have to stop every 100 miles or so to drain off excess fuel. lol  Palm tree's are waiting for us and maybe even a couple of misplaced hula girls lol.  Looking forward to meeting more people from the here on the board, this fulltiming thing is great, the biggest thing we've had to work hard to do is to not think of the destination as the goal but rather the journey as the important thing.  The run to the sun continues, cody.

Good Luck Cody & Libby,

We'll see you in Arcadia, I am sure after this year you will not hesitate to do this each winter, before the First Snow, so mark that date down on your calendar.   Drive safe and enjoy the journey.  Lucky dogs!!

The eagle has landed, we're sitting in Jacks yard, got to meet the rest of the crew here, this is going to be fun. More to come but I'm missing the party, the guitars are hitting it on Jacks porch and I'm even going to drag out mine for a test run lol.

Glad you made it safely
