Lex & Rita,

I'm so excited. I hadn't realized that you would be at the Oregon Gathering. I look forward to meeting you and seeing your Biod in person. Happy travels

It did cost us 2 days and $ 200 to get the rig on the road eventually.
Now in Tallahassie ( Big Oaks) testing things and getting propane.
The electrics seem to work as expected :-)

Cool! Your rig looks great here

And a Volvo wagon to boot!

Glad you're on the road now,

For those of you who have been following Lex & Rita's weblog, you know Skip and I met them in New Orleans a few days ago. We were there on vacation, which coincided perfectly with the early stages of their journey across North America this spring and summer.

Skip and I are now back home, and L & R headed out yesterday to Natchez, Mississippi and points beyond. It was great to meet them, after being acquainted through this website for several years. We showed them a couple of our favorite things about New Orleans, and now I know what the Crescent City area's KOA is like.

Plus (big plus!) we were able to have a look around their Biod trailer. So similar, yet so different!

For those of you who have not yet checked out Lex & Rita's weblog, you should give it a look. He's posting great photos (except perhaps for the one of me! ha!), and even translates the descriptions into English for us!

I think they are also interested in taking the "scenic routes" in their travels, so if anyone has a particular favorite - please post it!

Talking

Welkommen.

As to the food, ask for "senior meals" They are generally cheaper and smaller.

The mansions are antebellum, that is 'before the (civil) war'. Antibellum would be against war.

I see you go not too far from Carlsbad and the Carlsbad caverns. I reccommend them:

http://www.nps.gov/cave

For music, you may pick up a copy of my favorite, Spike Jones



In Santa Fe, New Mexico, be sure to see the Loretto Chapel with the spiral staircase assembled without nails. The legend is St Joseph built it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loretto_Chapel

In Utah, I hope you will visit Bryce Canyon, which is not a canyon but a cliff. It is beautiful. The columns are called 'hoodoos'.
http://www.nps.gov/brca

You plan to go through Seattle, Washington (state). We live just southeast of Seattle and you would be welcome to drop anchor here at the house for a few days. I am told I am a good tour guide...

Hi Lex& Rita...Thankyou sooooo much for the great pictures...we are following your travel adventure!!! You seem to have your share of problems and MIRACLES!!!! I thought it was just us that this happened to!!!
My favorite saying when traveling is " For every mile of road there are two miles of ditches". Keep SAFE.

Just a reminder, Lex, that you will soon be traveling in higher altitudes for a week or two. (Santa Fe I believe is 7000 feet above sea level.) It usually takes several days for your body to become accustomed to the high altitude and you probably won't feel as peppy as you hoped for. So relax, keep well-hydrated (with water), don't over-exert and enjoy. Your vehicle may seem a little less powerful, too, but that's normal and also nothing to worry about.

You probably know all this already because of your extensive travels. When we have visitors from Texas or the west coast, they always wonder why they feel tired when they first get here, so that's why I'm reminding!

We all want your trip to be the "Trip of a Lifetime!"

I for one (of many I'm sure) am really, really enjoying reading your Blog, Lex & Rita! In some cases I'm able to relive some long ago memories. My father was career Army and as I child I saw some of the same places you've seen recently. Thank you so very much for posting the wonderful pictures and all the great stories.
