    Wanted to send out prayers & safety for all in the path of Tropical Storm Barry. Let us know when you can that y’all are OK. Not sure where Bama Ed & Tigger Dad live Mississippi/Alabama?
    Ed and I are about 100 miles apart so relatively similar in weather expected. I was supposed to be in Demopolis, AL camping and touring some pre civil war mansions but I cancelled. Doing some work on a lake behind my house and trying to get as much dirt moved as I could before rain.

    Folks along the MS river are already having issues this is only gonna make it worse.

    Ed, I DO NOT have anything to do with Stark ville. DW is avid Ole Miss fan and thus I have orders to stay away from there. Although I do hear one of the largest marijuana fields in the south is located there...:rolleyes1. University research I hear.

    Speaking of Vicksburg, MS your conversation with us when last we met has helped me convince kids we need to camp there and tour the Civil War park.

    If y’all are talking about Grand Gulf State Park, we stayed a few years ago and it’s got some pretty cool old stuff. Kids were very young (I think it was before the younger one, so the one would have been under 2) and it was effectively my first trip with a camper ever, so I didn’t check out as much of the museum type stuff as I’d have liked.

    and if you’re there, definitely make the drive to the Old Country Store for fried chicken.

    PS: the ranger there was awesome and put up with a bunch of questions from someone who clearly had no clue what they were doing.

    Michael, We are praying that Barry will dissolve & go away. Watching weather channel & seeing the flooding from MS. I hope the flood waters & tornadoes stay away from all. When can, please let us know how y’all are doing & Ed also.

    Checking in, Gloria.

    Barry has left me high and dry so far. Here is the recent radar for today (Sunday 7/14).

    I put in two purple dots. The Mississippi purple dot is about where tiggerdad is. The Alabama purple dot is where I am. Big difference between the two...

    Sounds like something a camping trip could cure!

    Just steady rain here, we seem to be right on edge of this constant northerly flow of rain, but not too significant for us. We actually needed the rain on this side of the state. The west side of state however has been getting too much already. I've taken the opportunity to work on a few projects out in the shed. I'm still working on a 1943 German lantern that I found in a barn. It was badly rusted when I located it and I've been trying to get it cleaned up and painted. Currently I'm sealing the tank which had a few pin holes in it from rust. When I'm done I'll post pics of it on my camping thread.

    Also, @SouthAlabama5er father had made me a Musket Mickey sign and I'm sealing it so it won't get damaged if it gets wet. He also made us a Minnie "G" that I'm getting sealed as well.

    Well this weekend we are looking to hit 100 degrees, the last time that happened was 2012. Heat index yesterday, today and Sat, Sun near 110, real feel.
    It is too hot to do anything. Hope everyone else stays dry and cool.

    Ouch! Not saying anything you don't know, but that recovery is pretty miserable. Especially the first few days. Take the pain meds and follow the Dr's instructions very literally. Get well soon.

    Hate to hear that Denise. The recovery is pretty bad on that one.

    Hey, why don't you let Frank take over while you are laid up?
