I'm really sorry I couldn't help you in Foley, I got called out of town on business. Left you a PM. Hopefully next time and I'll have mine done.

From Rosie: No problem Paul. We weren't sure we could make Foley before 6pm to pick up the rental car so we opted for Pensacola. We'll see you next time around!

Default This post...

.... is the best trip write-up that I've EVER read!

I was following you guys through your adventure, and what a trip!
Every morning that I got up (Norway is 6 hrs ahead of the Bahamas I think?), I turned on my pc to see your new posts and pics.

Great story, great pics and great people. Must have been "The Ultmate RV-Trip"!

And when I now look at both the ratings you've gotten and the number of wiews, it's easy to see that you guys sure gave alot of people alot of motivation and fun!

It was fun reading Scott and Deb's summary too. Great write up!

Thanks alot for taking the time to make this post guys! Following it was the next best thing to being there...

Thank you Mike and Denice for some GREAT videos of our trip!

This gives everyone a little perspective of what we did.

It was sure fun!

Thanks for posting them.

Default Video Patch Cord

I used a video patch cord that if I remember right I bought from Chief, it plugs into your headset jack and into your recorder, they work great!!! it cost about $25 but well worth it, What island are you going to? How many planes are in your group? have a great trip and post some of your videos!!!
