Ha, It must be some other "Steve" I keep reading about. He is always working Barths, Boats, Cabins, VW or his home. Oops, maybe that is not work? Huh?

Mary's son David and his wife showed up for dinner on Saturday. A good meal!



On Sunday we celebrated the birthday event. Another great meal with cake, too!

Miss all you guys!I had a plan but it didn't work out.

I have an event at Watkins Colorado Airport next weekend and was planning to leave early even though it would be kinda a long way to Colorado was planning a stop to meet and surprise y'all.

The promoter and staff are all located in and around the Houston area. There was some question if there was going to be an event. I really had to delay until I knew for sure I had to go to Colorado. The staff is able now to get all their equipment out of Houston area to Colorado.

I am in Laramie WY and will make my way to Colorado later this week. Have fun and maybe next time!

Happy Birthday Mary Ray, You beat me by one month!

Cagles left yesterday. Another beautiful day on the river bank. The Johns left first thing this morning and our guest of honor Mary Ray left later AM.

A great bunch of folks to meet up with and a new RV park to add to our list of favorites! Thumbs Up

Liz and I will lounge around another day and leave tomorrow mid morning after Memphis rush traffic. We will spend another two nights on our way home.

I am fortunate to be able to spend time with such great people who have become some of my best friends. A Barth GTG is always an excellent time.

Already looking forward to Barthtober and Hillsborough. Join us if you can! Thumbs Up

Have Barth, will travel Tooling Along

Happy Birthday Mary! cheers

Sorry to have missed your birthday and a perfect chance to travel south to meet up with good friends in a wonderful RV park on the banks of the mighty Mississippi.

We've been sticking pretty close to home keeping an eye on our centenarian and have only done one very short trip this summer.

Missed seeing you all!

Tomorrow, stop in Canton for dentist appt, then north, home to Kalkaska tomorrow afternoon. Almost 2000 miles this run.

Looking forward to seeing people at Barthtober.
