    I have to wait until I get home for pics. Our camera is at ~2000 images! And then our friend's camera has a lot more!

    upload the whole thing to Picasa [or what ever photo website you use, I love Picasa] that's where I keep all my photos. Like this one:

    BB just stop at Wallgreens or best buy and get another memory card usually not very expensive. just so you don't run out of memories.

    Awesome trip, Baron! Glad you guys made it here safely.

    How was Yellowstone? And, given the choice, would you want a Class C vs a pup?

    Oh---good to know is that most McDonalds in USA & Europe now have free wifi. We loved the one in West Yellowstone because we could park outside and use the wifi without (further) expanding our waistlines. Gotta save room for S'Mores!

    The last day...
    God has been shining on us.
    Our final RV park is by far the best I've EVER seen-Orangeland RV Park.
    More details to follow, but here's our spot.

    After surviving Universal Studios, we decided to forego going to Disneyland on a Friday and instead do some serious damage shopping!

    Checking in at San Diego airport.
    We made the mistake of going to Ikea and Target...
    $180 in over weight charges! Yikes!

    It looks nice for a 2004. Arrange for cleaning afterwards. Ours was a bug magnet.

    9 mpg? That's funny! [LOL] (count on between 7 and 8)


    Ours was huge. comfortably big enough for eight people. This is only one foot shorter, so you should be living in luxury.


    Get a water pressure regulator to hook onto the hose (at the spigot) so you don't have to use the system pump when hooked up.


    Also, make sure you have all the electrical adapters. 50 to 30 amp, and 30 to 15 amp.


    Are you familiar with hook ups? They are amazingly simple. If not, send me a PM.


    You're gonna have fun!

    I've decided that the best quote of the trip is, "I've got too much blood in my alcohol system."


    Our friends held a big party for us, and the best man at my wedding said this. He was on a roll! [LOL]


    It really gives me a good feeling to know that so many would come all the way to see us.


    We are in recovery mode. 9 bags, 3 overweight (Julie decided to buy dishes! None of them broke...)


    I'm on my first cup of "real" coffee and copying pics to my hard drive now.


    Now off to pick up Fuzzbutt and my ortho surgeon appt.... Life resumes!

    Glad everything went well for you BigBaron. It sounds like you really enjoyed yourself. Now you need a vacation from your vacation, to recuperate. Don't forget to post some pictures for us, when you get a chance.

    I'm already tired just thinking about it!
