Okay, I don't know about you guys, but our local groundhog did not see his shadow, so it looks like spring should be just around the corner for us here in central Ill., regardless of what "Phil" had to say today. So, time to start the planning of waking up camper from its sleep in another month or so. Wife and I got out the calendars already, and it looks to be a good year for camping!! Another confession, is it just me, or do others go out every couple of weeks just to say "Hi" and check things inside the camper?

Two years ago the local radio station did a "mock" live coverage of the rat (Phil) coming outta his hole....In the back ground all of a sudden ring out three rifle shots, mass histeria sets in and Phil is the victim of assasination. Damn near the funniest thing I ever heard!

We are suffering right now the 5ver is in the shop getting warranty work done.Its the first time since we picked it up that we have not been able to just walk out and measure something or look at how something is put together or just take a picture if we wanted.I didn't realize how often I went out there to mess with it till it was gone.We can't wait to get it back where it belongs so we can go out and occasionally say HI.In addition it will be nice to get all the stuff back in the trailer as many things were brought inside so we would not have to worry about them at the dealer,

It is really sad that Pennsylvania in know for pot holes and a rodent.

Doesn't say much for the idiots in Harrisburg running things in the Commonwealth.
