Visit from the Admin

It's not everyday that we get to see the Administrator of our blog. Sure we send emails, iMessages, and GPS tracks, but seeing one another in person is a real treat! The Sunday after finishing his marathon Mark S. made the trip from Richmond, VA to Beaufort, NC to see Rode Trip. Mark S. arrived at Town Creek Marina just as we were stuffing the last of our Sam's Club purchases into various places. Not sure if we'll find everything again but I know everything is stowed away. We welcomed Mark S. aboard and gave him a grand tour. Mark S. often travels with his camper so it was fun to show him all of the ins and outs of Rode Trip and compare how we adapt to live comfortably in small spaces. Thanks to Mark S. for helping us to return the rental car on Sunday evening. We parked the car, dropped the keys, and headed back to Beaufort where we had a tasty dinner. Mark S. brought along his bird book and we tried to identify a flock of sea birds we'd seen along the Intracoastal Waterway. The verdict was still out, but we were narrowing potentials for these white birds with long, curved beaks.

Mark S. planned to stay a few days and join the adventures of Rode Trip. What will tomorrow bring?

    I'd love to learn the tale of the ibis.

    Ask Paul Cook about the Ibis. And yes, Mark S. has helped a number of us with websites and other things that geeks are good at. We are so fortunate to have his talents to help us out. Right Sue? Cheers to Mark as. Rode Trip blog is very nice. Way to go.

    Howdy --- I'm now wondering if these might be the White Ibis that we saw a couple of days later. --Mark

    Have a great visit with Mark!!! That boy gets around. You can really compare notes on the subject of living in small spaces. We look forward to seeing Mark here in Fort Worth in February.
