Monroeville isn't far at all. Point Clear, just outside of Fairhope, is also a beautiful spot to visit. There is a rather expensive Marriott there but you can sit on their deck with a water view and have drinks and dinner without staying there. Many years ago it was called the Grand Hotel before Marriott established a beachhead there.

I just looked at the map. Fairhope looks like it could be a nice town to visit.My wife has a ticket for, To Kill A Mockingbird, in Monroeville a week from this Saturday.It looks like it isn't a whole long ways from there.
       I'm looking forward to getting for the first time in my life,fresh sea food,except when I was in Japan for a week of R&R.And that was a street vendor,and we were probably too drunk to taste it.I think it was squid.

North of Green Bay is definitely out of the Sun Belt. You will enjoy Alabama. If you are on the coast I recommend a swing through Fairhope, a beautiful small town with a lot of class and good restaurants.

  Well,the mid 50's tomorrow and Sunday.I will keep working on moving the snow away from the foundation of the house.It's still about two and a half feet deep,but by Monday we should be in good enough shape to drive down to Green Bay,pick up our rental car and head down to Alabama hopefully Tuesday and visit the south a bit where neither of us have ever been.
       I don't care how humid it is.I have never been so tired of snow like this last one and I have lived in Norther Wisconsin for the last 40 years,coming from Southern Wisconsin.

The West Coast of Florida is definitely more user friendly than the Gulf Coast of Texas from June through September. Similar to snow birds we have swelter birds who depart for Aspen, Jackson Hole, and San Miguel Allende, among other seasonal climate welcoming sites.

Classifieds -- For Buying or Selling / R9 For Sale
« Last post by CPD.LT on April 20, 2018, 02:43:32 PM »
I have a pristine R9 (# 5333) that I purchased last year from a prominent member of this site. The gun displays no visual evidence that it has ever been carried. I personally never fired the weapon or even disassembled it.

I am selling the gun for $1,350.00 which includes free shipping to your FFL. The gun comes in the original factory case with the manual, warranty card, extra magazine and spring and also a spring compression tool.

Email me at Ricklmann@msn.com with questions or requests for pictures.

Thanks!
Rick

Not us...We look forward to the summer here on the West Coast of Florida. No tourists/snowbirds, no waiting at restaurants, the best boating & beautiful summer breezes. Our humidity levels here in the greater Sarasota area aren't that bad.

Those who are able depart the Gulf Coast in the summer for higher altitudes and lower temperatures and humidity.

I hate to bring this up (no, I really don''t) but this has been one of the best springs on the Texas Gulf Coast in many years.  Mild temps and moderate rain have been a pleasant surprise. 

We have had the house and car windows open a lot this year.


Bad news is it will change soon.  Blazing temps, high humidity, bugs and all the other things that make our summers so special are around the corner.
