WARNING  rough draft,   read at your own risk,   editing will be throughout the week



Whew, we arrived at 10pm at Travis's House  Josh's older brother.  We will be staying here for 2 months instead of the originally planned 1 months.  We need time to fix up the RV and make more necessary repairs before we head on westward.  I need to do a transmission flush, and replace whatever seals thats leaky, and replace the axle seal in the rear, and check on the seals on the engine itself.  The oil consumption has increased slightly, and as I unhooked the car and tow dolly from RV,  it's covered in spottles of oil from the RV.  But since it's only spottles of oil, I'm assuming thats from overfilling the tranny fluid by accident, giving my car the blow by treatment from the tranny.  I will check into this next week as I plan to start on several repairs, and double check on the reliability for the west coast coming up 2 months from now.  I will be on the lookout for a temporary job in Florida, fixing cars, or whatever I can get.  The first night here we were so tired, we just chatted for a while, and went right to bed.   The next day we spent catching up news, about life, and plans and whats not.  Travis is really happy to see us arrive, to spend time, and the holidays with family for once.  Josh and Travis went out to the Paradise Skate park located bout 20 mins from cocoa, Florida, and skated for several hours over there.  I didn't get a chance to go with them, because I wanted to finish unpacking, and getting setup for living here for a while.  The weather here is incredibly warm, and I really don't miss the cold.  I'm already acclimated to the warmth and so is Josh. On the 2nd night we decided to drive up to St Augustine, where my friends of many years currently live at.  We spent some time catching up the news on whats going on with deaf Florida, and made plans to go to a Poker game this coming weekend on Saturday where a bunch of local deafies gets together and play poker for fun.  We're gonna go up and catch up for old time sakes and introduce Travis to the local deaf scene.  Later on I hope to catch up with Heather located on the west side of Orlando.  This is a nice big house with plenty of room with several roommates all living under a roof.  There's Travis, Josh, me, and Michell's step brother Mike.   Gonna be fun to see how it's like all of us living together under a roof.  Travis is still hunting for electrician job, but all the work's dried up, same as my field of work as a auto technician.  The rent here is generous, and very affordable, so living here is not a problem for us.  I'm not too worried as most days will be spent all over Florida as we want to see the sights we have not seen yet in this state.  We would love to see key west, Orlando, Miami, Daytona, and especially Tampa.  We have 2 months to do all of this, so we're gonna take our sweet time here.  <sigh>  life's good so far.   I got a lot of work to do editing and adding stuff I generally forgot.   Hah.    Back to you...
