June Already!

Hello to the few that will read this monthly installment of "WATCHDAVETRAVEL".Included are some pictures of where I have been staying for the last two months.This is a recap of the month of May 2010.I did not do alot in the way of traveling but it was a pretty good month anyway.Spending time with my best friend and his family has been fun. It is interesting to see how a healthier family interacts.They actually encourage each other with no hidden agenda.I'm not putting down my family,but we are a bunch of individuals that get together for holidays.My step brother Scott and I have a very special relationship.
All of the stuff I ordered came in and is being used.Ordered were a Samsung 55" LED 3D TV with 3D Bluray and surround sound.I also got 2 Sea Eagle boats. A one man fishing frameless pontoon and a motormount for up to 1200 pounds.I took the one man out on Lake Murray last week and caught one fish.Using just the oars instead of the trolling motor it was fun, painful and exhausting.Next time the motor will be cranking, for sure.But, I got a great tan, lots of exercise and it was just beautiful out on the lake.The TV system is fantastic and will be used for a long time to come.
This week the trailer goes to Camping World to get some maintenance and upgrades added on.I will drop it off on Sunday.Then I will check in to a hotel for 3 days in Columbia,SC.The new TV will remain at my friends house until Tuesday night.On Wednesday I pick up the trailer from camping world and head north to Charlotte, NC.I am staying at a park for a week in the area.I will fill you in on the details in my next writing.Amongst other things on the following Monday the 14th Hibbie will drive up and we will go to WWE RAW.I mentioned it last writing that we have front row seats.I am very excited as this will be my first time in the front row.The only thing that I am not looking forward to is my friend Hibbie is a really big guy and I am big too.I have to figure out a way to say"I did not pay all this money for my seat to have you take up half of it". I will mention it in a nice way and tell him to squish the person on the other side of him.Crappie conversation but I would rather say it then be uncomfortable.I just hope there is a kid or smaller person on my other side.
We did get a few days of rain that left me hurting but for the most part I have been feeling OK.Not good still always in pain but OK.I do not think that I will be able to ever workamp.Some days no matter what I could not work.I guess the only way I could workamp is to have a very flexible schedule.I plan on heading home on the 22nd or 23rd and clearing out my house.I'm not sure if I will stay till my cruise in September.Oh! By the way, I am going on a cruise on the fourth of September for a week.The Carnival Dream is the ship.We are going to Belize, Honduras, Playa de Maya, & Cozumel.Never have been to any of these ports.I'm going with my buddy Hibbie,Dad & Sheila,sister Joy& BIL Mike & nephew Brandon.This time just Hibbie and I will share a room.I got a handicap room and will use a wheel chair most of the time.On the 3 day cruise last year I was to overtired and in too much pain using my cane.
