Shannon- Even though it hasn't been a week since I last visited the Fort, I am envious that you are heading there for a nice, long, stay! Have a great trip! Looks like you are in for some nice weather. I look forward to your updates on your TR.

I hope that you are on the road now.

But, if not, take it easy. You are on vacation. The Fort will be there when you get there.

It looks like you have plenty of room for more stuff in the RV.

Well, it has finally arrived: Departure Day! Schedule says we should be down the drive by 8:30am (or 8am if the wife is within earshot!). That would get us into St Mary's before the campground closes and leave us enough time to head into town for dinner at a stellar little place called Sterling's Southern Cafe (incredible crab cakes). But the time is now 7:28am and I cannot imagine DW being ready to depart within an hour. This promises to be a morning full of strife and a long day in the saddle, topped with a fast-food dinner. Doh! The bast laid plans of mice and men, ehh? Anyway, I am hoping to do a running TR this time. I'll post briefly and often, or at least that's the plan. See ya soon!

Have a great trip!!! I'm about 6 1/2 hours behind you!!! Hopefully see you tomorrow!!!


Safe and happy travels to you both..and I hope to see pictures. Have a great time! :santa:

Hi, Shan-man! I'm in W-S and my son is a student at Southeastern! Been to your neck of the woods many times.

Hope you have a wonderful and safe trip. We were supposed to be in WDW a few weeks ago but had to cancel because I recently had knee surgery. Couldn't get in and out of the moho. Doing better now and jealous of all you who can be there!

Looking forward to your updates.

The Character Premier store over at the outlet (International/Vineland) has some pretty good stuff right now too. We were there yesterday and picked up a couple of bag fulls. All clothing was an extra 20% off - got a really nice '08 sweatshirt (reg. $60+) for $24. :thumbsup2

Shan-man... DH is usually at the dog park in the a.m. with our little blue merle border collie. If you're there and want a chuckle, go up and say, "Hi Brian... and this must be Blizzard!" :lmao:

Hey Shanta! I just arrived back home after our week at the Fort and wanted to say it was great meeting you and sharing the 500 loop with such a Fort Fanatic! Wish I was still there, but reality called and I had to pick up. Love the pics of you in the HDDR...and wish we had done that again instead of the Spirit of Aloha. Next time I guess.

Enjoy the rest of your stay!

Terrific TR, Shanta! Sorry we never got to bump into you in person. Hopefully next year :santa:

I love the image of you waiting for your ladies at AK and just talking to passers by. Reminds me of my uncle. He and my aunt were with us the first week of our trip, and every time we'd leave him by himself for a even just a minute he'd made a new friend! :goodvibes
