Wife and I are going to  take our travel trailer and go camping this weekend.  Will gone till Monday afternoon.  No computers, no internet, only cell phones for emergency, and believe it or not, no Healing Well.  Before you say anything JamesC, I won't even be lurking.
 
First real away from home venture for me since last September's major surgery.  So if there are any spats this weekend, Purgatory won't be a part of it, so don't try to pin any unsolved crimes on me.
 
Suppose to be sunny both days, and around 80 degrees, and I reserved a lake front site right on Lake Keowee, only about 20 miles away, but crystal clear and looking towards the mountains.
 
Peace be to you all,  like a bad penny, I will return, lol.  So enjoy my absence.

Purg- have some freakin fun, don't know about the rockin camper theory (LOL)...you could cast your rod out for fishin' which is alittle different program and get hooked on that event (LOL), it is r-e-e-l fun and kicks Bass, perched up on a dock and all that. Catch and release...do not eat bottom feeders (ancient Chinese secret).  Hope you don't get lured away to long from the webcam.

We will know your every move (lol): F8 has installed the GPS on your camper (it also comes with the wireless pinball tilt mechanism...thus we know if its rockin), Mel- has wired your camper for wirless webcam but you will never figure it out where it is hidden.  tongue

Have fun and enjoy your break. Sometimes a change of scenery is great. I recall you went to Asheville a couple of years ago and know you enjoyed that trip as well.
