Now that's funny! Got an open bottle of Mead in the camper's fridge.
Bet it's gone before you get here though. Plenty of Limoncello!

I'm bringing some of my limoncello too. Maybe we will run across each other at Goshen so we can sample each others to see how mine compares to someone who knows how it is supposed to be made right.

Better yet, bring it over to the PPST camp, and we'll be impartial judges!

Been a while since I last posted an update, but I think this will be a "final" pending something that has to do with a transplant.

Our MANY friends at the FROG group and here on the Forum (a particular thanks to the Phat Phrogs and the invite to their pond), allowed us to enjoy our stay at the FR rally in August. The cycler behaved itself and Laura was in great spirits (except for the early to bed part).

Then home for a week and then off via US Airways/American airlines to Oregon for a family reunion. Pre-shipped all supplies and solutions to Oregon so we only needed to bring the cycler.

THAT was a problem as it turned out. Seems the "Airline Carry On Approved" shipping case was designed for the airlines 30 years ago and would not fit down the aisle or "wheels in" the overhead bin.

The Cycler could not be "gate checked" (and picked up at the door) because they would only check it through to the baggage claim area. That is not permitted with the cycler as it is very delicate.

SO, we needed to board with the "handicapped and those needing special assistance" folks in order to make sure we had an overhead, space as well as not kill anybody with it on my head trying to get down the aisle. Even though we paid for section 1 seating priority, the fact that we were allowed extra time to board resulted in many snide remarks from the passengers as we boarded after the wheel chair folks.

While we were "first on" we were also "last off" for the same reason. I did not hear a word from those folks as we let them off first before we tried to get the cycler down and carry it off (again) on my head.

Did I mention I also had a backpack with all our computers and carry on as well? I felt like a pack mule and it was a LONG aircraft!

Home now and working on getting the camper ready for our last two "long weekend" camping trips.

We get her transplant evaluation first week of October and hopefully she will be found a good candidate for transplant. If so we will be nailed to the proverbial "camping floor" because we will need to stay within a 2 hour response time of the University of Philadelphia.

Reading is about as far west as we can camp and the Jersey Shore is about as far east without taking the risk of missing a good viable kidney.

Time will tell.

I wear it all the time, thanks again. Frankie will also wear her anniversary present "Rearden Metal" bracelet also. Have to figure out how to put a sticker on her junker without her seeing it. Got one on the truck and camper.
