      that's been often noted over time ....the picture below was taken yesterday .... it shows Highway 81 7.5 miles south of Arlington .... 81 is a main north/south 2 lane Federal highway with a 65 mph speed limit .... that area is about 18 miles south west of where we are camped .... the only thing on our schedule for today is a 40 mile round trip to Brookings for grocery/supply shopping

        busy, busy day in the neighborhood .... second day of a 10 year old and younger baseball tournament that has drawn teams from miles and miles around .... all campsites are full, families with kids are everywhere .... heavy thunderstorms are all around but its been dry here in Estelline since mid morning ... a big walleye fishing tournament over on Lake Thompson with several relatives participating in it has been stopped early due to lightening .... its spooky still right now, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if a storm moves through here at most any time .... we don't see too many pickup truck slide-in campers back in NC .... one moved in next to us yesterday and will be here for a couple of days

            We owned a Lance 815 a few years ago. Missus HATED the shower on the toilet vibe. We were likely seriously overloaded on our little 1/2 ton chassis.

              for the last week since I added to this thread, our time in Estelline had pretty much settled into a routine .... almost daily storms with heavy rain and strong wind come and go .... various family members stop of a visit and "coffee" at mid morning and mid afternoon .... campers come and go .... that all changed shortly before midnight last night .... Maureen began having intense pain from an ingrown toenail .... I took a look at it and yes I could have cut out the part causing the problem .... that said, there is no way to do so without causing her even more pain .... so, off we go to the Emergency Room at the hospital 20 some miles south in Brookings .... road construction down there requires driving a poorly marked path through residential / business areas so as to be able to come into the hospital from the rear ... we did make it .... the Emergency Room staff was exceptionally nice and we were impressed with both them and their facility .... back to the camper and finally settled in for the nigh just before 3AM .... back to Brookings early this morning to pick up antibiotics, pain pills and bandage items .... on the way took on good solid fuel for the first time since the day after we got here .... during those 5 weeks we put 899.7 miles on our truck, over that distance she averaged 12.1 mpg .... that's about as good as she gets .... tomorrow we have to schedule an appointment with a Podiatrist for Maureen so we will most likely go back to Brookings again .... she's doing fine but the Emergency Room doctor said more work needs to be done to help insure the problem doesn't come back
