Peco campers which is now called Campers Inn. They are just a couple of miles from Stone Mountain on 78 Hyway. tv stations 2 11 and 5 have real good coverage of up coming weather. I'd hold off on the awning. Later RJD

And then some bonus content regarding getting individual wheel weights done (Escapees SmartWeigh).

When you get close to Portland area, if you let me know what type of parks you prefer,maybe I can help with a place that isn't a 'muck' pile. I live 1 mile off I205 which is a by-pass off of I-5 around Portland and 1 mile north of the Columbia River......my suggestion would be to travel west from here and south down the Oregon coast to, and thru northern Calif...I own the street here, been here since '74, so you park any where....well, maybe. Ps.. Port Ang. in northern Wash is nice area.

Sounds great, Bob! I'm not entirely sure when we'll be in Oregon just yet, but we'll make it there. I'll hit you up as we get close.

Doug, read your weights. Looks pretty darn good. You have mentioned way to shave off the excess weight. Good information and thank for sharing!

Thanks, Brian. I'm glad that I can do a few little things and shave down my weight to be under weight- though, I'm really not crazy about being so close.

Yep, we leave here bright and early tomorrow morning to head up to Cincinnati for a week.

A couple of blog updates:

1) a way overdue update from our time at Stone Mountain Park Campground in Atlanta, GA:
Now Or Never - an RV Tale: Week in review - Stone Mountain, GA

2) we left Stone Mountain and headed to Cincinnati, OH. We stayed at Winton Woods, went to the Underground Railroad Museum, and to the Fernbank Museum. All are highly recommended.
Now Or Never - an RV Tale: Week in review - Cincinnati, OH

3) the last update, but still a couple of weeks behind where we are is from just above Detroit/Dearborn, MI in St. Clair, MI. We had visits from Pennsylvania family, went to the Henry Ford, and attended a charity motorcycle ride. It was a good time.
Now Or Never - an RV Tale: Week in Review - St. Clair, MI

The long and short of these are the pictures which are up on Flickr in albums by the same names.

You can also cheat and catch up to where we are now:
- we left St. Clair and headed to Sycamore, IL for a visit into Chicago
- from there to Oak Lake Family Campground in Fair Oaks, IL
- we back tracked to Elkhart for some service work
- headed to Springfield, IL where we saw the world's largest covered wagon but no real *Lincoln* stuff
- and finally, where I stand now- St. Louis for the Arch and zoo.

Casino Queen RV Park. You'll fit just fine.

It's a place to park, but not much of a campground to hangout at. The spots are all blacktop with some stone strips between them. They're all long pull-thrus. No picnic table, no fire. There are some community/shared picnic tables and grills on a grass median in the center of the park. Small playground with a fun see-saw- I know how you like that.
