Tom,

I am just kidding! Grin  I know how hard it is to part with any bus that you have "made your own".  Even though my GM5301 was poorly converted and had zero storage, I still hated to see it go.  Embarrassed

Steve,

My Family roots are from Delaware and every summer I would stay with my Grandparents and we would have scrapple every the morning.....nothing like the smell of scrapple and coffee to wake up to....even though I was not allowed coffee at my age.

I am so looking forward to getting my hands on some real scrapple, because what they sell for scrapple out here is terrible and worthy of the trash can toss......LOL

Mike,                                                                                                                                                                                                ^^^^^

I am glad to hear that you got the Sax's 7. Looks like a good coach.

You can quote multiple folks by clicking on the "Insert Quote" button on the upper right had side of each post, when you are creating a new post.

Make sense? Maybe not. Okay, when you reply to my post, click on the "Reply" button. Then scroll down to where you can see my post. There will be the "Insert Quote" button right up there (look up here^^^^). Click that button, and you are set.

Enjoy.

John

October on the Florida panhandle coast campgrounds can get crowded. We usually make run that time of year to Destin/Fort Walton Beach area.  Ck out Florida St park camp grounds for openings to get ideas.  Area  camp grounds we like there are Henderson Beach , Topsail Hill  and Saint Andrews @ Panama City  all top of the line!  If you decide to to St Augustine area    that's a whole differant adventure which could include Silver Springs on Hwy 40 & Daytona tour.  Bob

Just tell  FL hi and bye and head for New Orleans where you can get real food lol the State of La  has some nice state parks and are cheap to stay at.

We stay at Bayou Segnett in New Orleans when we are there it is close to everything walking distance of were all the shrimp boats come to unload and sell their catch

 Let me know when you plan to hit that area we maybe there.

I go early to beat Wayne (Rusty on the board here) to the crayfish when he hits town the craw-fish the population goes down in hurry he stays with the crawfish for eating but I do like the muffaletta sandwiches really not much food in New Orleans I don't like lol

good luck

Mike -

I find it a lot easier to just click on the "B" button above for bold text, then type the person's name I'm directing my comments to within the brackets.

If I want to comment to multiple folk, I just repeat the process for each person after skipping a line (double space).

I have also used the "insert quote" feature from time to time, it, too, is handy, but can clutter a message, IMHO.

FWIW & HTH. . .

Low Tide,

I would follow the coast to Savannah, Ga.  two days there. The down A1 to St Augustine, FLA.
Depending on time, there are two ways to move to the Florida panhandle.
The fast way, take Interstate 10 over to Panama City, Florida. The the coast 98 to Pensacola.

However, if time pemits, I'd leave St Augustine ( the oldest city in America) take 207/20/26 through Gainesville then 19 North to Perry, and the costal road 98 to Pensacola.  You'd see the heart of Florida and some beautiful coast.

I love back roads, when time permits.   Grin

Shouldn't be to bad finding a place to park. 

Just my 2 cents.

Mike,

Congratulations on the new to you bus. It does look mighty nice in those photos.

You might want to consider taking the 95 to the 40 in North Carolina. Go 40 west into the mountains and there should be some leafy colors to look at. Heck, if you want you can take the 40 all the way to the 17? and drop down into Phoenix. If you do take the 40 then a stop at Tom Sawyer's RV Park in West Memphis, Arkansas is in order. Its not oceanfront, and with the drought I don't know how much waterfront there will be, but it is right on the Mississippi River, something else you don't have out west!

The 40 is also much less crowded than the 95 and would be a more relaxing and scenic ride for the wifey. There may be some other I-route possibilities to drop back south to the 20 or 10 west of the Missiissippi but I'd have to check a map, who has one of them anymore, to plot a route.

That's my 2 (where the heck did the cent key go on the keyboard) cents worth.

If you decide to take I-40 west then you will pass right by Bryce's ( aka: Busted Knuckle or BK ) place.  Try to stop and say hello.  Just be careful of his dogs!  They have a high slobber content Smiley

Isn't it grand when other folks plan your trip for you    lol
