    Hello fellow PUPsters, PopUpSteve here. My apologies for the long absence, I have been dealing with some major health problems and trying to get back in shape. This unfortunately coincided with the changeover to the new website software, so I apologize for leaving everybody hanging a little bit and not been able to respond to messages and emails. I have been monitoring things in the background as much as possible but just wasn't feeling up to posting.

    OK, enough for the sad luck story which is my life. Onward and up word.

    Good news is over the last couple months I've been re-training myself with getting out camping. One of the goals was to be able to do a cross country trip this summer. And I'm happy to say I'm making that goal. I am writing this from southern West Virginia on the first day of my journey.

    Tomorrow I should be rolling in to the campground at Land Between the Lakes in the afternoon and staying there for the weekend to view the solar eclipse on Monday. After that, I'm continuing cross country until I had Hoover Dam and then I'm heading north for Yellowstone. Then across the top of the country and back home. I'm even going to take a little shortcut through Canada to get home.

    I'll keep you all informed as I go and once home I hope to be back up to par and full-time back on the website.

    Make sure you check back here and I'll also be posting pictures on the Portal's Facebook page.

    Nice to see you back Steve.
    Hope you are fully up to speed again and no more health scares.
    As for the portal Facebook page, can you make this page public so we can all see it? (for those of us that don't do it)

    OK I am not sure then as it is asking me to login?
    Don't worry about it, as I can live without it, I am sure.
    Just enjoy your holiday!!![:D]

    Looks like you may make a stop a Seminal Canyon in Texas if I am reading your map right. Where ever your stops, enjoy your trip.

    IMG_6650.JPG IMG_6651.JPG IMG_6653.JPG Made it to my first major stop, Land Between the Lakes Kentucky. Here to see the eclipse in totality.


    No cell service at the campground so I won't post unless I venture out and find signal.


    A bit hot here but nothing I'm sure like where I'm headed. Putting those PUGs to the test.

    Welcome back Steve. Hope you continue with the good health and enjoy your trip. That campground looks awful empty right now, but I'm sure that would change.
