Geez, what a couple of crazy days!
Last night we slept in front of
a service bay at the Camping World.
We had a 9 am appointment to get
our satellite dish from Winegard
and get hooked up to Direct TV.
We made sure that we were up
and ready for them by 7 am.
(One of these days I'll really get to sleep in!)

It finally all got activated by about 7 pm.
Oh well, we had planned on spending
two nights asphalt camping at
Tomorrow, thank GOD,
we will be in Welcome, MN,
at a real campground, for
3 days, relaxing,
and realizing we're retired!!
