Thank you Tom for the we'll wishes and all the help. We are dawdling this morning. Kermit has an early appointment so we are waiting until he gets in at 10:30 or so. That way we get to meet and greet with both Kermit and Earl.

That would depend on your electrical skills. You have to cut the main power cable and splice it in. NOT something I would ever do but I know some of you super fix it guys wouldn't think twice about it.

ALL security devices are just a deterrent. A determined thief (or well-prepared thief with bolt cutters) will take it. I'd just like to avoid any "impulse stealing". While shopping online for all the hook up toys I hit several reviews where people commented they had bought the same item several times after the first one walked off their campsite. Hoses seem to be popular... which are probably one of the cheaper items to steal.

Ron, they have one that can be hardwired in and has plug and play replacement parts and we would have gone with it if I'd known sooner and if Phoenix could have wired it for us but the one I have is the portable model that plugs into the post. So now we have to figure out how to keep it safe. Maybe someday we'll invest in the other one and get Phoenix to wire it in.

Since we will be working from the RV, we will have several sensitive electronic devices on board to protect as well as the RV systems themselves so we bought a Progressive Industries surge protector.  It is heavy duty and expensive so they put a steel plate on it with a hole so you can secure it to the power post to make it harder for someone to walk off with. My question for all of you is - secure it with what? Can you wrap a bike chain or use a big U-bolt on the post with a padlock? Has anyone secured something like this? I'd like to use it but NOT lose it the first time we plug in. I assume all power posts are not identical so the system has to be somewhat adaptable. The manual gives no clue.

Thank you, we'll be sure to wave. And if you see your PC twin being tailed by a Toyota Prius sometime next Friday, that's us so be sure to wave back. The Prius could be red or blue, not sure which one is making the trip. It won't be attached. You can't tow a Prius four down and we don't want to deal with a dolly. Selling two Priuses and buying and equipping a Subaru Forrester is next on our task list.

Woo Hoo - we are so excited! We'll drive out to Elkhart on Tuesday and will probably be sitting on their doorstep like homeless waifs when they get there in the morning on Wednesday. We're booked into the Shipshewana campground for two nights for system testing and any tweaking it may need then off we go for a casual meander back to Maryland. Our nanny cat stays home this one last time then she'll go where we go. She took her first "walk" in her harness and leash yesterday. That's going to take some time but at least we were able to pull it off with minimal blood loss and stress. We made it all the way from the front door, around the house and in the back door. Baby steps - the only way to go.

Well, soon we'll be asking all those newbie questions and, hopefully, somewhere down the line, we'll stop being newbies and will know enough to answer a few on our own.

EEEEEEEEEEEEE - so excited. (This is Holly typing - John would never squeal like a girl).

I was also about to suggest the factory. My 2004 Prius had THREE PAGES of translations for the beeping, blinking and glowing warnings (they cut back starting in 2005, thank goodness.) The guys at the factory probably moved your vehicle at least 8 times since it got to their lot. I imagine they would have checked out the beep to make sure it wasn't complaining about something they did wrong.

I sent an email question to Amanda at the office and received a reply from Karen stating that Amanda is no longer there and questions can be sent to Karen or Kermit.

McFadan Clan,

That's excellent! We look forward to meeting the west coast cruisers also. Bring your woolies, just in case. I don't think Northern California gets as nippy as Northern Michigan might.

For those experienced reunion people out there, how many PC owners usually attend? I'm terrible with names so if I may have to take notes... and track aliases for those with different screen names. I'll be so confused.

There is TOO a "Good Fairy". There was a picture of her on the 40th birthday card my sweetie gave me. The card said

"Every year on your birthday the good fairy taps you on the head with her wand and makes you one year older... (open the card)... OH MY GOODNESS - she must have beaten the @%$& out of you"

- Isn't he just too sweet? It took me a long time to cure him of that gaggy romantic stuff. Sometimes I wonder If I cured him a little too well.

Tom, no worries on the shopping with me. I HATE shopping, UNLESS it is on Amazon or for the granddaughter. Now, browsing a cool store... I'm good with that. Plus I expect I'll be cured of any packrat tendencies by the time we empty this house out and hit the road. And we won't have a house to ship stuff home to. If we buy it, we better plan to haul it around the country in the PC for a year.

Sue, that looks perfect - We might have to hit it going and coming back.
Thank you!

Does anyone have recommendations for the journey to the Petoskey reunion? We expect to be in far eastern Maryland (almost DE/NJ) for Labor Day weekend. Current plan is to roll west to drop the granddaughter off in Frederick, MD; overnight near Deep Creek, MD on Monday; overnight in family's driveway in Cleveland, OH on Tuesday; overnight ???? midway up Michigan on Wednesday; then on to the reunion for check in on Thursday. It is only 6 1/2 hours from Cleveland to Petoskey according to Google Maps but in the interest of leisurely RV living, we'd prefer to split that trip somewhere in Michigan. Does anyone have recommendations for something midway between Cleveland and Petoskey?

After getting ALL our dates on the calendar I realized that the Friday of Labor Day weekend, August 30th, is our jumping off date. Our plan is to hit the road for a year so the reunion will be our first "long" trip of our year away. Yee HA! About 4 more weeks until we get the PC then 4 months after that for the trip. With so much to do in so little time, it should go by quickly but it does seem to drag.

We hope to meet many of you at the reunion.

I forgot - they told us that Phoenix covers your first year dues and the paperwork is in the glove box when you pick up your PC.
