    • we are camped at the NC State Fairgrounds with our camping club .... we grilled steaks with all the trimmings so this outing is off to a really good start .... with this being our last outing prior to leaving or South Dakota we hope to test all camper systems .... the weather is really cooperating, had to run the AC's this afternoon and with it supposed to get down to the low 40's tonight, we'll kick in the heat for a while in the morning

      • low key, relaxed day .... following a great breakfast, the ladies spent some time at the large flea market that is open on weekends at the State Fairgrounds .... none of them purchased anything .... our fellows consider that to be a good thing .... we sat under the shade and talked while watching one of the guys finish a handle on his newest sheath knife .... he really does a good job .... sent out for pizza for the evening meal

        • its a packing up morning at the NC State Fairgrounds .... its been a good weekend with our camping club .... all camper and truck systems appear to be ready to head for South Dakota but that could change at a moments notice .... extra time will be spent cleaning our camper's holding tanks, the next time we do so may well be in Nebraska City or Estelline, SD .... next up with the camper is a tow over to the welding shop Wednesday morning to have its carrier frame repaired

          • well I spoke too soon in saying all camper systems are on go .... when cleaning the tanks I spotted small leak .... I believe it to be in the tank flusher line .... most likely failed as a result to the extended cold temps for a week in March .... have to get one of our sons to come over and drop the underbelly cover to see exactly what's wrong

                • our Tarheel Roadrunners camping club will once again camp at Raleigh Oaks this weekend .... this is our last scheduled outing for 2021 .... there is a good chance of rain moving through around dark today .... thankfully, Saturday promises to be beautiful with a high of 72 and only a 25% chance of rain .... anyone passing by on I-95 is more than welcome to stop by

                  • as this is being typed we are camped with our club for the first time in 2022 .... we are at Raleigh Oaks which just off of I-95 near Four Oaks, NC .... early this week the weather was beautiful but it has gone down hill steadily ..... a thunder storm rumbled through just before daylight .... by mid morning the sky cleared .... from 3 to 4 PM they now show a 95% chance of snow, thankfully with little to no accumulation .... for us this is a test of our camper's systems which haven't been used since Christmas .... thankfully, so far, so good .... we have noticed a marked reduction in the usual Snow Bird migration
