Hi. my name is Francine and I need to lose some weight and eat healthy foods all the time as I am a diabetic and also a asthmatic. I never had a weight problem growing up( I was very thin then).

I will try to remember that its what you do for your body that keeps one younger regardless of your age.

We are going there with a group of SP from my RV team. Some I have met and others will be new but an old SP friend!! Spending 9/13-20 together and know what we are going to choose to do. i am thinking many will want to try walking the hill. Maybe I will too but depends on how I feel at the time. I do love walking the river front though. We have had our dogs down there as well. Have to carry water though. Think I will look for one for them and then can walk with the dogs too. We have been told there are watering stations along the walk but we haven't found them yet so carry our own.
Enjoy your time while there. Hope it's not too hot for you!!
