12-28-09 Monday (Bicycles Are Over-rated)

We departed the RV park this morning at about 10 am.  Jacksonville – here we come.  The ride over was uneventful… mostly.  Here’s the day in pictures.

 Wall of Death

Above: Jim and I refer to this as “The Wall of Death”.  We DO NOT enjoy riding next to a shoulderless wall.

 RebelAbove: Prejudice and proud?  It’s a huge flag.

 Trucker LabelsAbove: The front says “Operating Room”.

 Tricycle Above: YES this is a man on a very tall unicycle.  He’s also in 2 more photos below.  Look for him.  How funny is this?

We stopped at a Mexican restaurant prior to the RV park.  We met up with Alix and Lisa.  Later Larry met up with us.  We met at La Nopalera, a very yummy place.  All 4 of us had the fajita nachos.  Be sure to visit Casa Hice for more photos and details!

With full tummies, the 5 of us headed to the RV for a few minutes.  With the slide in, it was cramped at best.  Good thing it was just a few minutes.

We arrived at the Pecan Park RV resort in Jacksonville later in the evening.  The park is very nice.  No mobile homes, just RV’s.  It was great to be back in this kind of atmosphere. 

Somewhere between the restaurant and the RV park, the stairs stopped retracting!  We weren’t aware of this problem until we arrived at the RV park.  Jim checked it out and found a broken bracket.  He tied the steps together so they’d stay retracted.  While at the RV park we used the auxiliary steps we have on hand that we usually use with the screen room or for a more permanent feel.  I’m hoping for no other break downs or MISadventures for the rest of the trip.


  1. Love the photos! Like I said on Alix's blog, I'm jealous you all got to spend some time together!

  2. Niiiiiiiiice.

    When I got to the "Fake" photo, I burst out laughing so loudly I made Augie jump a mile and Larry look over at me with consternation.

    So damn funny. Yeah. That's Larry's favorite wig, but wait til you see my my new ultra chic ultra short silver do! I will be revealing it next Spring, so stand by.

    Hey! Why are your photos five thousand times better than mine? Always. Dang.

    Thanks for posting our get together. It's always fun getting together. Why don't we have like a blogger reunion in Charlotte and everyone who wants to meet us can come. Good idea?

  3. Oh My Gods! That was some serious hilariousness, bitch! ESP the Alix shots.

    I'm all about a Charlotte reunion. I'll totes come out and defend Alix's various hairstyles and try not to shag your man when you're not looking. Because I'm classy like that.

  4. Looks like I missed a hell of a dinner party!!!

  5. Oohhhhhhhh! I LOVE Dasher! He burroughs and hides like my doxies! I had fun too! Tons!

  6. I'm feeling the love ya'll. Fake hair and all.
