    Hi. All
    We're back in Florida now and its only 10 days until we come home can't believe it's gone so quick. Jans looking forward to coming home to see family, and Daniel will be home from Afghanistan half way through his tour. Personally I'd like to keep heading West as there is so much too see and do over here I'm planning the next trip already.

    Getting the RV & car ready to put into storage so any tips gratefully accepted. I rang the guy we'd arranged storage with yesterday and guess what the bloody units are'nt even built. No wonder it was so cheap, so I've spent the last 24hrs looking for an alternative and just done a deal with a guy for secure covered storage for the RV and car for 12 months so we can come and go as we please.

    Next thing to look forward to is the Americana in July and then the Morrocco trip in September and I have'nt even booked a ferry yet. :Blush:

    3 photos attached took them in a State Park a couple of days ago

    See you soon :thumb:

    I'd love to stay I think I've found my second home in the states I love it but Jan needs to see family.

    The Americana is an Americam lifestyle festival thats run in July every year at the Newark Showground over 3 days. Its been running for 27 years and has featured some huge American Country & Western stars over the years. Also displays of American cars, trucks, RV's and motorcycles. Music starts at 10.30 in the morning and goes on until midnight. It attracts people from all walks of life and all age groups but never any trouble it's a great atmosphere. MotorhomeFun are having a meet there this year, only a small group going but it will be fun.

    The highlight will be Winnebagotony performing his famous dance routine I'm sure you've heard all about it. :Rofl1::Rofl1: This year he's got a new group backing of girls who last performed for us at New Years Eve, they know who they are.

    Ror,

    Thanks for the info and link on Americana.

    That would be something to see but, no, I hadn't heard about it. Anyone have video?
