Tom,

       Barry said you can stop those old man night breaks by getting a clock that runs fast.  That way it may be morning on that clock when you get up to go!! rolling on the floor rolling on the floor

A few of us will be at Franklin Locks, Corps of Engineers Park during the 1st week of January. We will be there Jan 2-5. Barry and Sue will be there longer. Syd and Margo will be there as well. Last I looked, all the sites were taken but there may be cancellations as we get closer. If you are interested, just keep checking ReserveAmerica and you might find an open site. Last year, Syd and Margo got one at the last minute.

If you are ever close to Punta Gorda, let us know.

Oh yeah, we are sleeping on the correct side of the mattress.

no fumes here either. I put a very heavy coat of polyurethane on the top of both beds and the bottom of the drivers side because it lefts up. I also put the corner guards along the edge to protect our fingers.

Hi Judy:
I was a little late today going on line .... but I just called Franklin Locks and she said she only had places for boats (?) and other then that they were booked solid  Cry .

Thank you for checking for me.  I will also stay on top of calling, and hopefully we will get something between now and then.

Thank You,
Carol

Carol,
I just checked again. Don't call--do it online at reserveamerica.com. Site 22 is available. It is a back-in.

We would love to meet you.

Carol,

     We are going to be camping near you from 1/10/13 for two weeks.  After we leave WP Franklin we head over to the St. Lucie locks for two weeks.  I think Vero Beach is a short distance north of Stuart.  If you can't get a site there for a few days stop on by.  Cheers

Barry and Sue

PS - Just saw your post - we'll see you Jan 2.  Looking forward to it.  And I think site 22 is a nice pull thru site even though it is described as a back in.  PARTY at the WP Franklin Locks on the second of JAN.

The mattresses in our 2011 are much better than in our 2008 but still a little too firm for us. We bought Twin Down Alternative Mattress Toppers: http://www.finewebstores.com/Twin-Down-Alternative-Mattress-Topper-Approximately-5-Inches-Thick_p_26098.html#

$120 each. They are very comfortable.  Like a pillow, though, they have to fluffed occasionally.  And at 39 inches wide x 75 inches, they fit perfectly.

Barry & Sue:

Looking forward to meeting all you guys at the Franklin Locks in January.

I am still watching and trying to get at least one or more additional nights so we don't have to roll in and roll right back out  nod, but if nothing else surfaces, we will still be happy to at least have that one day to meet everyone.  Cheers

Carol

Carol,

     W P Franklin also has a walk up site that is non-reservable.  Maybe when you get there you can make arrangements for that site and then stay longer.  That early in the season there might not be anyone in the walk up site.  Could get it under Vince's Senior Pass!!!!

Hi Sue:

I will keep trying on line and then if no luck getting additional nights then we will give the other a try.

I am so excited about the senior pass that I printed up a form that I downloaded on line and filled it out and stuck it on the calendar on the refrigerator  ThumbsUp  I'm ready !!

Vince keeps telling me that we are in the high cotton this month ... he is going to be getting social security and will be eligible for the senior pass .... yep .... he's the man  !!!! rolling on the floor rolling on the floor

Can you rotate the corner bed mattress 180 degrees so the top stays on top and the gap with new foam wedge is in the back corner in pillow range? Just a thought (from my better half.)

Holly:
Yes ... we rotaed the mattress and built a foam wedge so that person who gets the shaved off edge of the mattress can keep their leg on the bed at night. Smile  we also flipped the mattress to find that there IS a wrong side.  One side of the mattress has harder foam then the other ... ouch  Cry Cry

We ordered a new mattress which actually arrived today from Camping World .... an inner spring mattress 8" thick and I HOPE THIS WORKS !!!!!!!!!

My back was aggrivated by the mattress and then I ended up pulling all the muscles in my lower back OUCH  Cry but we are going down in the garage tonight and sleeping in the PC on the new mattress  to see if this will solve the problem.

Good Luck  ThumbsUp

Follow up on the new mattress ....  Heart Shower WONDERFUL  Heart Shower..... we had taken the PC out camping twice and both times had rushed back home from sleepness nights and extreme mattress discomfort. I was almost in tears at the  thought of having to sleep in the RV ever again until Vince decided to try one more thing ... a new mattress ....  We purchased an 8" thick innerspring mattress from Camping World as a last resort. It arrived this past Monday ... so we opened her up put it on the bed and added a  1/2" memory foam to that .... and had a camp out in the garage    exactly!  let me just say this about that  ..... I had the best nights sleep ever and when we woke up the next morning it was 8:15 AM .... we have never been able to sleep that late before .... yay !!!!!

That was the only reason we had the girl up for sale was the lack of comfort and sleep .... it is a super RV and we were both a wits end until the Camping world flyer arrived and saved the fate of "THE CAN" as we have named our 2350 ...... THANK YOU CAMPING WORLD  Hug2

So world here we come  Cheers
