I rented a lot at the Mississippi River where I could put a camper. I have been getting it ready for the camping season. I have to get all services installed and hooked up.

I'm right off the River and have seen Eagles and Pelicans when I've been down there working. The River is still down which is good, hoping for a little rain but not any floods.

I had such a great time, Thank You both.
