Some of you may remember me posting from Alaska for a couple of years. Last May my wife Nancy accepted a transfer to be the new chief ranger at Fort Smith Historic Site in Arkansas. I had already retired from my ranger job in Alaska in 2002. We had moved there from Wyoming in 1997. I had to dig the Casita out of a huge snowbank to get it ready for the trip. After ten days and 4000 miles we were in 97 degree heat and I was grateful we had opted for the AC. Just one year earlier I had driven to Texas and back to Anchorage with the Casita. I put nearly 10,000 miles on my truck on that one. Now we live within a 6 hour drive from the factory. Nancy grew up near here and has family nearby. I am pretty much a Northerner, but I sure like the winter around here. This is winter? Being back in the lower 48 has its advantages. We have been able to use the Casita every month. We had a fine trip to the Texas gulf coast in December. I camped with my Dad in Arizona in October. In Alaska, I had to winterize by the end of September. Anyway, now that we are settled in a new home I thought I should get re-acquainted with the good people on this forum.

Hey, David. I remember you talking about moving there. Glad that you made it and all is well.

I'm sure the summers are going to be really hard on you, but (as you noted) the winters are great!

Donna, Susan and Frederick

Thanks for the welcome backs. We have a new computer and will soon be getting our digital photo files on it. After that I hope I can figure out how to post photos on this site.

Susan - let me know when you are in the area.

Frederick - I visited Hot Springs for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Good luck adding AC to your rig.

Dave
