We got to sleep in until 7:00am this morning and we still made it to GAIN in time for breakfast.

We were up and at the GAIN site by 7:30am this morning. Another beautiful day is forecast. Today was a good day. We topped off the boxes and shrink wrapped 12 pallet loads of medical supplies.

|Thanks again Doug|
We are both tired but feel like we got a lot accomplished and know it will make a difference in the lives of people that need help.
Happy Birthday to my lovely wife who looks younger to me every year. We are getting going this morning. The plan is to head to Lewisburg park at Walmart unhook the car and go visit Bonnie's brother. Then latter in the day after shopping at WalMart we will head for Ives Run in Tioga, PA to spend the night. So far a nice cool day but it is to be 88 later. We have had a great week and have enjoyed getting to know the Coach better. We have just been plugged into an extension cord so no air conditioning and limited use of the microwave since it draws 17 amps on its own. The coffee pot was only 7 which surprised me. But no blown circuit breakers this week so that is good. If need be we would have run the generator. We will use it later today after lunch to run the rooftop A/C to keep cool between Lewisburg and Tioga. I try to exercise all the systems on the coach, its good for them.
we both packed up things and we were ready to roll. We headed for the highway and stopped at one of the large church parking lots in the area to hook up the car. We had a nice short run up to Lewisburg where we stopped to visit with Bonnie's brother for a couple hours. Then back on the road for another 90 some miles and we pulled into Ive Run at Hammond Lake a little after 5. This is a nice Corp of Engineers Lake and campground. 88 degrees when we pulled in but the air conditioners are doing a great job.

Long night of sleep almost 10 hours. I was up at 8 and Bonnie got up a little after 9. With the windows shut and the A/C on I never heard an outside noise. We had our breakfast and Bonnie wanted to try our first load of wash in the Coach. Its been a little over an hour and it seems to be going good. It is a combo unit so will go right into the drying cycle. Sometime after noon we will pickup and head north for home. Its already in the 80's here so it will be hot and humid today. Neither of us like that. Its beautiful here today and I am glad we stopped to relax and catch our breath after a full week.
|It worked good|
We had a nice ride home. Lots of wind today and we ran both roof airs and the dash air, it still was a little warm for Bonnie. We got off at Dansville to avoid the 9ton weight limit in Warsaw. Route 436 is really hilly and we did not get home till 5:30. We unloaded quickly and headed into Elizabeth's for Bonnie's birthday dinner.
Dinner was great. Time to post this and relax a while.
Thanks For Checking In.
