I feel so bad for all of the people who live here in the gulf. We saw hundreds of power company trucks and disaster relief trucks and trailers heading to New Orleans and where we are, Gulf port, Mississippi.
Its a mess down here.

Big city should be food trucks right?
NOPE walked a 1/2 mile down what we in the Philippines called " shit river". Then up to a market place to find 2 trucks and one trailer selling food, all 3 looked like landscapers. One did sell cupcakes just kinda nasty cupcakes so we kept walkin'.
And walkin' and walkin'.
I forgot to get pics of the rolling food shacks sorry.
FOUND SOME SHEDS IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA they were up to high and no ladder so we left with no food, no sheds.
Still had fun being a tourist.

Well we are on our way. Finally after a three week stay in Tucson we are heading to Key West, FL. We just crossed into New Mexico. So far today it has rained on and off, but other than that it has been a great start to our trip. We miss all our friends and family already. Stay tuned for lots of fun and adventure!

It's been a long 2 weeks here. tooth problems started it all, so more pain, headaches, hard to eat, had to switch sides after eating on the right side for the last 4 years after the last time to the dentist.
The big deal was the penicillin that killed the infection and my stomach for 2 weeks and 1 1/2 days. Sucked!
I took the last 2 pills today!!! Whooo!
I hope the... I'll call them SIDE AFFECTS go as fast as they came. And alot of HEAT!
3 days and 3 more Doctors appointments to go. We normally are not on a schedule to go but we are this time we have to be in St Augustine, Fl on the 19 th of September to meet BR, VG, RR. So we need to roll.
Till we're on the road....

This is the start of a 7 - 8 month trip. We we're supposed to leave our cabin and stop in Phoenix first. That didn't happen because of the emergency dental run to the VA in Tucson. (at least I have all the teeth I came here with) Now with temps at 114 in Phoenix we can't stay up there so its a day trip. I'm still not doing well and wish I felt better. most of the time don't feel like leaving the motorhome, not sleeping and taking penicillin sucks. A meeting a day keeps the anger away! We still have to visit Green Valley and Phoenix just have to get feeling well enough to do that. meanwhile we are white trashin' it....

Ok I've been a little under the weather. I had what I thought was a tooth that had to come out. We left home 1 1/2 weeks early came to Tucson to see the dentist. I'm sitting here in hell but with all my teeth. Still in pain but now on penicillin, the dentist said that should take care of it.... infection? Who knows? All I know is we started our trip early and its hot!!! I think I'm melting!
We have 2 weeks to get used to the heat. Lots of thrift stores and a drive to Phoenix and Green Valley, 3 Doctors appointments then we're off!

In 3 days we got 3" of rain, wind and hail. I've been searching for a silver van with a black strip that rammed our back gate, hit the garage, hit a tree, ran over a cherry tree and spun rocks on the motorhome. Between the two I've been busy.
The bus is leaving in 2 weeks! We both have alot to do in 2 weeks but are anxious to go!
