Thanks for the update. How long were you traveling yesterday? I presume you are pulling a motor home, and must drive more slowly than most of the traffic. You guys take it easy and be careful.

Merry Christmas to "all y'all" as we sometimes say here in Texas!

Hi all. We are on the Florida border and will get to our first destination on Wednesday. I've only been able to test spirit 3 times a day while on th road. 5:30 a / 12 noon / 5:30 p

He's giving me some pretty good Numbers so far a d seems happy. Here they are...





The only real thing different are the walks... shorter than normal and not at the same times but close. I'm going to do a curve after a few days at the next campground where we will be for 10 days. He is a great traveler but we haven't hit hot weather yet....miss you all. Now I'm going to try and catch up on other folks threads.

Wow. So wonderful to hear! :)

Ali is a great traveler as well but her numbers often roller coaster a bit when cooped up in the car. High when riding and drop when investigating a new place. :rolleyes:

Hi Friends,

It's nice and cool here in Naples this evening and I did my first curve on spirit to see how he is doing traveling.

Here it is....still on 12 to 12.5 units

6a 175
8a 185
10a 111
12 125
2p 115
4p 127
6p 139

We took our usual walks for a total of about an hour today but all of them are at a much slower pace than our usual because spirit isn't quite as active when it is in the 70's so I just let him go at his own pace. The drop from 8 to 10 was after we took about a slow mile walk and that seemed to keep his numbers good all day. Hope everyone is doing well.:D
