 Monday was Paula's last day of work.  I picked her up from work in the bus with the Grand Cherokee hitched to the back of it and we left town.  We are sitting in our bus near Statesboro, GA visiting friends. We will go to Timmonsville next week to see old friends and make new ones. From there we are going to NC to visit more friends, then back to SC to stop by Gary & Linda's place on our way to northern AL. From AL, we will head to Hoboken, GA for the SE BusNuts rally,  then to northern Florida to visit more friends. Our trip then takes us the the Florida Flywheelers Fall Show for a SE Cruisers Rally. We should get home sometime in the middle of November

Congratulations Paula and Jack too!

So many of us on here(especially those still working everyday) have that dream of hitting the road.

But your getting to live that dream right now. Grin

Have fun and keep us up to date on your adventures.

Best Wishes

Jackie and I both wish to add our congratulations to the above list.  It appears that you and Paula have finally found a few weeks of the "Golden Years".

Now, if you have found the secret for finding all this bliss...please do write a book?  Mine is in progress, it's entitled: "How to Live on the Interest of What I Owe"! Wink  But the Publisher is having a problem with my advance fee.......

Enjoy, travel safetly and enjoy these precious weeks....because by the time you and Paula hit the FL State line again...you'll feel the walls closing in on you once again.

Fly...Eagle...Fly!

Good Grief Paula,
I have been corresponding with Jack for the past few days and completely forgot to congratulate you on your retirement, now you will have the same pace as Jack and that is to do what ever you want to do and when ever you want to do it, if that makes any sense.   We look forward to your possible visit with us and also seeing you in a few days at Timmonsville, and at Arcadia.  Doing this makes the time just fly by with planning one thing and then another and before you know it we are a year older. 

Congratulations again, now enjoy everyone you have meet in the past few years in particular and I guarantee you will not be bored a moment with the friends you have made. 

God's speed on the road and be happy.
