I took a Barth Journey to Surfside Beach South Carolina. Ocean Lakes Campground is south of Myrtle Beach. Ocean lakes Family Campground is on the Atlantic Ocean. We met some friends from Atlanta Georgia. They parked across the street from us at the campground. I also rented a golf cart for the stay.
It took me a leisurely three days to get there, from Ohio. The travel back home took four days. We only parked once at a Wall Mart and the other times we camped at state parks in Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio.
The Caterpillar purred along nicely. I did tighten the belts on the way home. One morning, while checking the oil, and transmission fluid, I noticed the belts were in need of tightening.
Thank God for a safe and healthy trip, to meet old friends. We enjoyed sunshine and shared cocktails together.
Members keep in mind the ballots are secret. There is no way to know how you vote.
Vote early and vote often.
Another option might be "Would love to attend, but it's too far away for our 47 year old Barth".
Your VOTE would be NO and NO, because I did not add the third choice. You folks might suggest a west coast event. I do not think I would drive to the west coast with these high fuel prices. Last year when diesel fuel was $2.00 was a good time to travel. Gasoline bottomed out at $.89 in my hometown.
Posting in advance before your idea or two as a suggestion in the Community Announcement forum. You never know who is watching and will show up on the Pacific coast.
Wanted to mention, the nights were cool in South Myrtle Beach (Surfside) but the coach floor was warm. My time spent engineering and installing the radiant heat flooring worked. There is always room for improvement. The 3/4" manifolds I designed kept my toes toasty.

That's one thing I don't miss. My 454 originally had 4 belts. Several different spares and some attention required.
My 8.3 Cummins has a single serpentine belt with a tensioner. It never needs attention and I carry only one spare belt! It can be changed in under 3 minutes.
Have Barth, waiting for me in Florida
