Hi, Batman

Fascinating quote, but...

There are at least 40-50 places along or within a couple of miles of US 101 along the Oregon coast where an RV may park overnight free, and numerous others where there is a charge of $20/night or less.

Fabulous!
How about starting a new thread and listing them here at IRV2?
For free, of course, like all the info in the forums...

We'd all be most grateful!

This is in response to the 40 foot length question on Hwy 101. I don't know the legal answer but I travel 101 in Oregon and California several times a year with tow vehicle. The RV with toad is well over 40 foot, probably 55 foot or so. I have not been questioned nor asked questions. If someone finds out it is lot legal I'd sure like to know. I don't think the question fits the thread topic but it was asked - and yes I do stay at WalMart, sometimes.

NOW I get it!
In my defense, I'd like to point out that the "Highway 101" question was ten pages and more than 120 posts ago!
("Blue Pill"s Post # 2333)

Of course, it works against me that I myself responded to that question...

The Geezer Moments are getting closer together lately!

Don't tell me about any restrictions, I don't want to know nor do I care.

And no I have never stayed at a Walmart although I do shop at them. They have a great price on Diesel Rotella !
Warning : If you ever go to the Walmart in Homestead, Florida. Lock your car and don't leave anyting in view. Stay the night

Heavens to Betsy, no!
The term "geezer" can- even should- be used when referring to those of either sex, provided of course that they exhibit the proper symptomatic behaviors!
Such as using outmoded expressions and too many exclamation points!
And indulging in long, rambling monologues, the point of which is usually lost not only by the audience but by the geezer that's doing the rambling!
The word itself has interesting roots, and like a true geezer, I'm going to tell you about them whether you want to know or not!
Its roots are of course Latin, not the Pig Latin so popular when I was a young whippersnapper, but the real, true Latin.
You know, like Doctors use to write their prescriptions.
Which you could plainly see if you could actually READ what the Doctor wrote.
Why is their handwriting so bad, anyway?
Clearly they weren't properly educated!
Or were they?
Some folks say they do that on purpose- even that they're taught special handwriting in medical school!
Me, I just don't know.
What do you think?
As if what you or I think matters!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now where was I?
Oh, yes:
The word "geezer" is from the Latin "keys-er" (keeeez-er), meaning
"one who is always looking for one's keys "!
Boy, girl- it doesn't matter!
Why, only today, I was doing that very thing at Walmart.
The "g" came into use when the original "k" was misplaced by the first Old Fogie (sp?) to be entrusted with it!

Hope this clears it all up for you!

Francesca

This thread will never die. It lives on!!!

Seen an Id 10 t the other day with his main 2 slides out where traffic was going by. Almost knocked on his door and told him to turn around...

It was in a high traffic area and his coach was new so he/she was probably oblivious to the fact that they were putting people and thierselves in harms way.

Can I get back to you on that Fran?
After looking at Funny Pictures at Walmart
I have to charge my phone and iPod batteries and go to WM to get some of that stuff that messes up septic tanks and check out how many MHs are there.
I might even get some fresh pics of Wal-worts.

Betsy? Does she go to >WM<? I'm gonna go look. See, I got the subject of this thread covered. See below.
My (sp) checker says that Foggy doesn't get the squiggly underline.
Besides that, it is easier to hit two "G" keys, if I could find them.
They move around on my keyboard.

I got two scripts from my Vet yesterday that were printed off of a `puter screen; I still couldn't understand them. I think somebody else runs the script pad under doctors' pens and moves it around just to see what color ink he has in it or if there is even any ink in it at all.

The >WM< Pharmacist looked at me funny when he asked when I needed the Vicoden and I told him: "Last week". True Story.
First language: Other.
Latin? Keys weren't even invented yet in Latinia(See FedEX Dino Stomp).
Oh, wait, those weren't the keys you were talking about.
My Vet is educated, but I don't know in what other world country.

Me? I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see.
What do I think? I think 1000 lbs of flour would make one big tortilla and a couple tacos! <

I once had a cat named Key-see. What is that in Latonian?
My best friend calls his Dad Geezer.
If I told anybody that a Geezer was coming over to help me with something, they would think I was saying "old man coming over".
Did they ever find the misplaced "K"?

Geezer Behaviors? Or is that Geezers' Behavior or Geezer's Behaviors?
I missed that when I was out sick for a year one day.
You mean women do the same obnoxious things that men do?
You're right!!!< Geezer women do ramble a lot. I thought it was a squeak over by the passenger seat and got out my WD-40.

Yeah, it's as clear as the brown spots on those tortillas that match the ones on my face.

They threw me out of >WM< for leaving a tire iron on the floor and a trail of salsa to the manager's office. Really!!!!!! <
