Isn't it amazing what 50 years will do? In high school you are
mortified to let people know that something was wrong with you. I was
deaf all though high school but only my very best friends knew that I
could not hear. I received a lot of: "God, are you stuck up. I saw you
at ____ and you never even spoke to me." If that's the worse thing that
happen guess I made it all right. Now some of those things are funny
but not when you are a teen.

Re: Costco Cherries

FYI... Costco has some fantastic Northwest Bings at a reasonable 
price. By the way, who was Bing?

Hi Carol,

I've only made one trip in a motor home, so take what I say here with a
grain of salt. I went from Seattle to Weyburn, Sask., Canada, then down
into Minnesota and back to Seattle in 2001. A three week trip. The only
rule for us boys was if you need to use the bathroom while we were
traveling, sit down. Wal*Mart is good. The truck stop in Fargo, ND was
okay except for the refrigerated trucks.

Depending on the size of your motor home, some parks will be a
challenge. Highway one (1) north of San Francisco, Cades Cove in the
Smokey National Park, cutting across 395 to 5 through Yosemite and many
national back roads, particularly with bridges could cause you some
problems. In other words, you might want to study a trip before making
that left turn on Lick Skillet Road in middle Kentucky.

KOA Kampgrounds, and I've stayed in many in a tent or Kabin (bring a
queen sheet), are okay. They are becoming more expensive, as is
everything, depending on where you are. For example, out in the middle
of AZ, ND, western OK, etc. they are reasonably inexpensive… and quite
a bit more expensive near Plymouth Rock, Mass. Nevertheless, they are
becoming more abundant, accommodate motor homes very nicely at near
tent site prices, are generally safe, have hook-ups, showers, swimming
pools, little stores and I have always met very nice folks staying in

One item about motor homes: last week while in the Smokey Mountains 
NP in eastern TN, campsite B117, or whatever it was, trying to put
together this smore, some guy over in B112, or whatever it was, has 
his motor home generator running for about an hour, totally messing 
with my late evening listening of squirrel and chipmunk frolicking... 
and bird songs. Very rude. Which brings up another point; taking a 
gun in your motor home into Canada. You might want to check into that 
before doing so.

Enjoy... and FUN is the only requirement!!

the Ohio River, visiting an old friend where cell phones don't work,

Re: Halibut recipes...

I just saw a wonderful recipe for Halibut on the food network's 
"Boy Meets Grill"... (One of Bobby Flay's cooking shows... my favorite)  
He was cooking the halibut wrapped in banana leaves on the grill... 
Here's the link...

Yucatan Marinated Halibut Grilled in Banana Leaves with Orange-Pineapple Relish

And while we are on the subject of fish... does anybody have a sure-
fire suggestion for preventing salmon from sticking the grill while
it's cooking... ?

That's it for today. Please send more.
