'11/#19 Last Day With SKPs (Escapees...get it?)

I don't know what is going on lately. Neither one of us feels great. My back is still killing me, even though it is getting better, & Mary has just generally been feeling under the weather. Because of this & the fact that we have been night-shifters for so many years, mornings have been kind of rough. We get up for the morning breakfast & socializing but find ourselves crawling back into bed shortly thereafter. Yesterday was biscuits-n-gravy & today was "eggs in a bag". Yes, in a bag. It was a first for us but it was interesting. Start with a zip-loc bag, crack 2 eggs inside, add cheese & bacon & ham & mushrooms & onions & peppers, mush until mixed, close bag, & place in a communal pot of boiling water. 5 minutes later you have an omelet in a bag. It was interesting but would taste much better closer to 9am than 7:30.

Mary is at this moment sorting through her pictures of the Biltmore Estate to post on FB. It may take some time since she took close to 700 pictures just that day. She went through 2 batteries & that is without taking any pictures inside the house where photography is banned. I am blogging as you can see. I am trying to blog off line to save some of our data usage with Verizon. With 2 computers & this being our main connection to the world while we travel we have gone over our allotted usage on occasion. The overage charges are, shall we say......OUCH! We try to avoid this situation as much as possible.

Today will be our last day with the Escapees. There will be an open discussion on all things RV related, the daily Happy Hour, a catered dinner, & the closing ceremonies. Tomorrow everyone will be hitching up & there will be a continental breakfast where we will say our good byes & trade contact information. We will be part of the mass exodus but with only 150 miles to travel we are in no hurry. Next stop....Dollywood!

As I said earlier I am trying this blogging off line thing. I may have to copy it over if it doesn't work or not do it this way if it doesn't work well. We will start the packing up process today so we will have less to do tomorrow. So this will probably be my last blog from our home in Marion NC

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary
