Visited General RV in Birch Run. Wow looks like there are 200 plus units in stock! Bought an Oxygenics shower head and a safety step. With the new lift kit the stairs are too high on some sites.

Also bought a 2 ft 30 amp extension to use as a sacrificial lamb for worn out park power plugs. I won't burn up my surge suppressor plug now.

After HOURS of tedious education and experimentation, I finally got my DIRECTV system set up. Now I'm receiving HD programming on both TVs in the trailer. DW thinks I'm smart. However, the deciding factor for my success is that I'm too cheap to have thrown the entire antenna system into the North Fork of the Red River.

As soon as the sun comes up I am winterizing, giving it a good cleaning and putting it to sleep for the winter. Blowing out the lines with compressed air this year.

Going to change the oil in the Tundra today and give it a good going over including a bath. DW decided on Memphis, departure will be either Tomorrow or Monday morning. Had both dogs to the vet yesterday, they are cleared for travel. Going to be 90 here today, ready to find cooler temperatures.

I finally got around to greasing my wheel bearings this morning. Now running some wire from my house battery to my kitchen TV in order to power my inverter.
