We finally escaped the north. We had 2 feet of snow in Kalkaska.



On Saturday I ran 225 miles to Canton (near Detroit) no snow! Thumbs Up





It got to 48 and was sunny all day Sunday so we stayed. Left Monday morning, drove I75 about 500 miles to a Flying J at mile 369 on 75. It snowed in northern Kentucky… then snowed some more in Tennessee, just light stuff but it wouldn't leave us alone.

Got out this morning, ran another 300 miles to Perry Georgia. It snowed as we drove through Atlanta… head bang

Tomorrow we'll be in northern Florida. Staying for a week at Williston Crossings.

So far, good run. Pictures to follow!

This weather may seem OK to you, but to us it's COLD. 52 this morning, and maybe 60 today if we're lucky. Hopefully it will warm up by next week. Hope you're planning on stopping by.

We'll have the power cord to the RV pad. It'll have everything you need except AC. Don't think you'll need it though. You're welcome for as long as you want.

Try to talk Danny into heading farther south with you folks when you come down to Meadowlark. Safe trip and thanks for stopping in Dalton.

I'm thinking Monday lunch at Tony's on Cedar Key - it had fallen on hard times back when we rented its space to it, but seems to have come back.

Kewl - be there around Noon, or a bit later, depending on Nelson's tending to duties on the morning walk...

A nice visit with Steve and Liz although way too short. When were we talking about Ed and Deb's? I thought it was this weekend but Suzie says next. If it's next we can make it for sure.
