And the good news is that we finally had some excitement this morning, my wife woke me up to say that the power was out so I got up to fire up the generator, not the problem lol. the power cord had shorted and was arcing against the metal of the bay floor, it was kind of pretty tho, lots of red and white sparks, sorta like a minature celebration.  Got that fixed and went in to have that much needed cup of coffee.  So far the day was going to be alright after all.  We checked the road and it was still glare ice but the snow has stopped and the plow crews are cleaning it up nicely and sanding/salting the blazes out of it.  This afternoon a bunch of snowmobilers pulled in and they are being kind of a pain in the neck, I sure hope I see their toys when we pull out in the morning, they seem to think that having their sleds scattered all over the place, which includes in from of our bus is ok.  We took a ride down the road to see what it looked like with the jeep, I think we can make southern Wisconsin in the morning, it'll be nice to see Jim C. and to be a little closer, I think the conestoga wagons made more miles than we are doing in a day, but this storm is according to the news stations here one of the nastiest they've seen in a while or at least since last winter, so we'll see what the morning brings but hopefully by afternoon we'll actually be south of the snow belt at last and running to the sun after a slight bypass to pick up a tub and some tanks for slow rider from bonragers .  No polar bears to report, but does a moose count? cody

I thought we had a tough day cuz I had to drive in snow and on snowpack for 2 hours this morning but it sounds like our day was a walk in the park compared to what you are putting up with.  Travel safe.

And the bad news is that the bus is warming up, I'm thawing a few frozen lines but we'll be rolling in a bit, looks like the run to the sun is once again underway. the parking lot plow guy opened the path for us this morning and all we have to do is fight our way about 8 miles to the highway and it'll be clear sailing down to southern Wisconsin, I'll take a few pics of the snow piles before we go but my laptop lunched on me so I'm at the mercy of other peoples pc's.  Dontcha just love vista? lol  It seems that it forgot it's a laptop, not sure what it remembers yet but being new it shouldn't have developed amnesia just yet, probably a minor fix that can be taken care of with a baseball bat or crowbar.  Hopefully, with a little luck, we'll be trading tall tales with Jim C this evening. One week of fulltiming done and more to come lol.  cody

I just received a phone call from Cody.  They are north of Madison and, surprise, are in another snow storm.  They said the air got thick and the road started getting greasy so they decided to pull over for the night.  This storm is just supposed to be 2-4 inches so he thinks they will be on the road tomorrow.  His computer is not letting him get online but he does have cell phone coverage where they are.  They are doing fine, watching TV and relaxing and didn't want anyone to worry about them.  If we hear from them again we will keep you updated.

Great news,

I just got a call from Cody & Company.

They are now outside of Bloomington, Il. and hooked up to a real honest to goodness shore power connection! They even have cable TV. Woo-Hoo!

They have decided not to head west to Indiana and the pillaging of the RV Surplus Stores and so should be here sometime tomorrow.

We just talked with Cody and Libby.  They are about 90 miles away from us and will be here tomorrow.  They got into some freezing rain and we were having sleet so they decided to be safe and stop for the night.  I don't know about them but we are so excited about finally getting them here that we won't sleep much tonight.

That's great news, Cat.  We'll look forward to their first post from TN and hope Cody fills in the blanks in their Odyssey. Inquiring minds want to know!  Nah, we're just nosy.

Well, it finally happened. We got to meet Cody and Libby.  They arrived an hour or so ago and we have had a super time starting to get acquainted with them as well as their two beautiful kitties.  I'm sure they will be posting soon but for now we wanted to let you know that they made it to Union City.

Life is good, we're sitting beside BK's garage and hooked up to real power, it's warm inside the bus, raining a little outside but it doesn't get any better lol.  Finally got to meet dallas, cat, and bk, real good people.  It's so nice to see green grass, no snow, did I mention no snow? lol  Took us a while to get here but now I can relax for a bit, libby is taking a nap and my laptop that had developed amnesia is working again, I'm thinking it might have something to do with the battery being dead, after I plugged it in it seemed to work much better, I'll have to try and remember that.  I'm going to relax bor a bit I'm finding myself still turning corners so got to get out of the driving mode, coffee sounds good right about now lol. more to come.
