Happy Fathers Day to all of the dad’s out there. Be sure to call your father and tell him you love him. My own dad has been gone for over twenty-five years and I sure do miss him. He was always my biggest fan and he always encouraged me to follow my dreams. He gave me my love of books and of travel, and from the time I was old enough to understand what he was saying, he always told me that I could do anything I wanted to in the world, if I just put my mind to it and worked hard enough to make it happen. I wouldn’t be the man I am today if it had not been for his influence on my life. I love you Dad.
After reading my blog about RV awnings a couple of days ago, three different readers wrote to give me a tip about how to keep an awning from coming loose while driving in high winds. They said to get some Heavy Duty Zip Ties and put two or three on each awning arm and it will help keep it secure. Then they cut them off with a pair of snips once they are off the road and want to open the awning. We always carry a few of these in our toolbox because they come in handy for a lot of things.
My buddy John Huggins has been busy adding a lot of new data to his Living The RV Dream website, turning it into one of the best resources for RV information on the web. John has information on everything from boondocking to workamping, RV safety, RV systems and more. Check it out
I have been busy making campground reservations. We plan to leave here on July 7 and go to the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails near Batesville, Indiana for two weeks, and from there we’ll go about 8 miles east to the Thousand Trails near Wilmington, Ohio for another two weeks. After that we’ll spend two weeks at the Hershey (Pennsylvania) Thousand Trails and then on to Gettysburg Farm, which is in Dover, Pennsylvania, for two more weeks. Then we’ll start wandering down the east coast, with stops in Virginia and the Carolinas, on to Georgia, and we’ll get to Florida eventually, where we plan to spend the winter. There is a lot to see and do along the way and we’re in no hurry, so it should be a lot of fun.

Thought For The Day – I hate it when I don’t forward a chain letter and I die the next day.
