Cruel and Unusual Punishment at Escapade

That's what getting up at 6:15 a.m. is to me...very cruel. I had to act coherent and present my extended warranty seminar at 8:30 this a.m. I walked in the rain and it was really cold and windy too. But I had a great turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I don't remember talking, I was subconscious.  Hitched a ride back to the vending hall on a very wet golf cart seat. That woke me up! We had an extremely busy last day. Charles was happy to see me as he headed for a restroom break. We packed up at 4 and briefly attended a get-together for folks heading to Alaska. Lots are going but few showed up. We left and finished putting away our show set up and had our last dinner with Nick and Terry until Feb. Gosh that's a long time before seeing our good friends again. We will certainly miss them but that is also a great thing about the RV lifestyle, we know we will meet up again down the road. We laughed, talked, ate and solved most of the weird problems of the rving world! Although we are tired, we are so excited to leave early tomorrow and head towards Minnesota. We will meet up with our friends and travelling buddies, Carolee and Dan. They are spending the night in eastern South Dakota tonight and will make it to our rendezvous a day ahead of us. We have about 900 miles to get there. Weven will probably be somewhere in Wisconsin tomorrow night. As my friend Greg would say...we'll see.


  1. Chris and Charles,
    You'll be so busy seeing Alaska with your "other friends" that you'll forget all about us. Ha ha! Please be safe and enjoy every moment. Take lots of pictures and post them. Hear?? Love you and miss you already!

  2. Safe travels and keep going on the blog. You're doing great so far.

  3. Leave breadcrumbs. We and three other rigs will be about 10 days behind you.
    Gayla and Glen Hickey

  4. Just started reading your blog. We also spent 4 months in Alaska in 2009 in Moose Pass on the Kenai Steward Hwy. Dreaming of the day we can return. Will watch your travels and look for those great pictures.

  5. We wish you bright sunny skies and smooth roads.

    Get real, what you need is an adventuresome out look and faith to go forward.
