Left for Dega yesterday. Stopping at Lake Talquin near Tallahassee for a week. Then off to the races for 5 days. Heading north after that to Indiana to meet our son and family who has been transferred with the Coast guard to Port Angeles in Washington State.
Just retired and am looking foreword to this new adventure. The Barth is running great and knowing Steve VW has the same coach means trouble shooting if needed is but a text away. Saw him in Florida this year on his way to the Keys. Maybe on our way back we can stop in Michigan and park the coaches side by side for a great photo.

Sitting by the Lake at our first stop and enjoying the Barth life.

I think retirement will suit you! (You will soon wonder why you waited so long.) ROTFLMAO
Now that you are on the road YOU can be the test driver and I will be the armchair coach. We had zero problems on our trip this winter, you should have the same. Liz has stripped almost all the wall paper and has rehung some as well. I have a few minor projects, new tile backsplash in bath and kitchen.

We are already planning a weekend in early May in southern MI, then the GTG on Memorial Day. A run to the UP in early June and a few more weekend trips over the summer. I would also like to see the folks from Minnesnowta if they can't make the May GTG.

By all means visit here if you can! Summers are great here, lots to do and see.

enjoy your trip!

Have Barth, will travel Tooling Along

One of our contractors frequents Lake Talquin for crappy fishing. He really likes it there. Hope you guys have a great time at Dega, we are sorta planning the Fall race, depending on how things go between now and then.
Steve, I used the metallic rectangles from Lowes on a kitchen remodel. They were super easy to work with, cut with a scroll saw, self adhesive, but in a coach I'd probably use a little something more, and the bronze would look great in your coach.

The fishing is great here for crappy, bass, brim and catfish. The park has a great laid back atmosphere and the folk who run it are great. I kept the Monarck here for two years when I was working in Tallahassee.

We are not going to use our Dega tickets next year if your interested. Great spot, Frontrunner Club 11. It's right on the fence at turn three..

Ed & Deb, your weather looks pretty bad today. Hope you're hunkered down somewhere safe. The weekend is looking great though. Hope you have a blast.

Nice looking coach you have there. Too bad there aren't two there. cheers

Stubborn cold lows (30's) for the last week. Sunny and 50/60s so not too bad. Need to get back to working on my boat engine.

VW engine is almost finshed. Mechanic

Mary Ray GTG soon! Thumbs Up

Left Talladega on Monday and we are in Indiana for three weeks before heading to Port Angeles in Washington State helping our son and family relocate to a new CG base.

Barth is running great. Getting about 8 mpg towing the Silverado so life is good.

Sorry about the cancelled GTG but I am sure something else will come up
