    Ok guys MY Daughter in Law starts her terminal leave from the Navy real soon so we will be moving back to Arizona in about 15 days . So I may not be online as much, packing and stuff like that so don't think I have died or left my good friends. My son and Daughter in law say we will do it in 4 days the only thing to slow us down is potty breaks for the dogs (and this old man).

    I will be driving I-40 so if you can stand on an over pass wave to me as I truck on through (budget truck) I'll wave back
    if I am lucky my son and DIL will do most of my packing just one room

    It looks like I will settle just south of Phoenix back to the DRY HEAT, North Carolina is just a little too wet for me.

    Thank you all
    now I am trying to load up my iPod with songs and books to listen too while driving

    Since I like DooWop, Sixties, Country and a little Disco I have a big selection to choose from.
    What I really need a some good sing along songs from the sixties shouldn't be too hard.
    I have my computer and my iPod both of which I can "hook up" to the radio and I be jam'n

    Well, I am driving the Moving truck with my van on a car hauler and son is driving the pick up with the Neon on a car hauler. SO I can stop anytime I want to.

    Safe travels, Dave, with a comparative minimum of things that are funny only in retrospect.

    Safe journey. Someone is going to have to step up to the plate to entertain us while you are "gone."

    Some of you may not know why I came to North Carolina in the first place.

    I lived in Yuma AZ (another Marine town) and was about 2 years away from retiring (after 35 years) and was going to move to the Pacific northwest, then I fell and became disabled. So I retired earlier with SSD and my State retirement (I had over 80 points), I now make 97% of my last 3 years average. If I don't count the retirement bonuses I make 103% of what did the year before I retired. (I doubled dipped for 2 years)

    MY daughter in Law, a Navy corpsman, was stationed with a marine unit at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Well she got deployed.
    So my son either had to quit school or work, in order to take care of my pre-school granddaughter, so this is where I came in. Since I am retired I said why not let me come and baby sit my granddaughter.
    So I "packed up the truck (really a van) and move to Beverly (Jacksonville)". Now we is a move'n back to the wilds of Arizona,
    The town I want to move too may need volunteers in the school district so I will try to keep my thumb in the mix.

    Your bones are going to love you.

    Check out some sites to see along the way. Remember the movie Michael with John Travolta? You have to at least wave as you pass by some of the oddball attractions along the route.

    Irish, volunteering is a great pleasure. I volunteer at our local food bank, and the best thing about volunteering is--they can't fire you.

    6 days and counting
    Today, was the yard sale
    YOU CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT JUNK WE SOLD!
    in fact we started to take stuff at 5:45 AM and there were people there waiting! We posted in the ad that it started at 7:00 AM
    Some nice ladies bought my oldies CDs
    We had a space heater that looked like a steam radiator, to keep us warm waiting for people, a guy said unplug it I'll take it.
