But since you woke me up, Jan and I are in North Carolina, working our way west to join up at the GC@CL. All is well so far, and we are looking forward to meeting everyone.

We winter in Florida, and just got under way in late March. We stopped at the Escapee's park in Bushnell and got weighed (go ahead, make the requisite smutty jokes here); we discovered we are NOT overweight----(can you say that?).

So now you can go back to sleep.

Tom
Wake up - wake up!! Now that I have your attention Tom - I have to ask - why are there no posts between we just got a 90's model Dolphin - first RV/MH and ---- we have a '05 KSDP ? A man of few words.... Perhaps we can ply you with wine and cheese and the dazzling colors of kimonos and such to hear how hard the RV Bug bit y'all on night 1 of the GC @ CL

So I actually carry 2 cell phones with me and I'd bet both are trackable.

What's really embarrassing to admit is that my daughter works for the company that developed the technology that lets 911 systems pinpoint your location.
Not an exact science. The cell phone towers can do a triangulation on the phone signal but it only gets then within a block or two. Close enough for most government work, except LEO's. They have to call in the big boys with the direction finding antenna to get the pin point. However, they will be able to tell what insterstate you are on and your approximate location. If you have an iPad or iPhone you can give someone permission to track you. Again, it's ball park location.

Sohapi you have joined us, like in So happy! You DON'T have a jeep. Darn if you were coming to the GC you could be a judge in the bacon challenge, and an unbiased one at that.

That ain't a problem at all! I only have a small money laundering fee for that service.

Just let me know if that is OK by you and I will do it. Ya'll can pay me back whenever you get there.

BTW...this should only apply to those with 2 or more nights. Those for 1 night are already paid in full.
Don, checks in the mail, or if you prefer cash. Get me a good site please. Nice and level since I'm having leveling jack problems. Thanks.

Wayne - clearly you have not seen CSI Anytown or NCIS Everywhere - cause they can find you from the moon with a telescope these days... But of course your "shape" has a lot to do with that...

That's your story huh. Yea that's the ticket and sticking to it.

Marty - all of my extra Ommms and positive energy are going toward Honeys quick and full recovery. If push comes to shove - Bonita can travel with a leaky blade on the grey side. While up in OK we left it open so the grey water drained to the sewer and didn't drip on the ground. We have a sani-clean on the black side and can always fill it up with fresh water for a cleaning.

Suffice to say - I remember last year - before you mutated - and Honey sat with her engine down at the Ford house with an uncertain future. We have all come too far together for y'all not make the GC. I would be, as Annie would say, distraught.

Ommmm.

Wow, hard to believe. You would rather catch and can Salmon rather than meet with potential bestest ever friends.

BTW we were told on a cruise that that's how the place got its name, catchecan

Low to mid 70F here today. Gotta love long deep south facing inlets (Fjords) for heating up ability.

Oh, Steve.. gee...that was in 2012! I would probably rent a yurt if it came to that or borrow my sister's trailer....LOL... we've put enough money into her so far, we can't stop now... why ... all that's left to replace/redo is the tranny, exhaust, and entire interior excepting the new faucet DH installed... oh wait... the exhaust manifold had work done.. it was the first thing done before she even made it home ... yes and she needs new shoes... mustn't forget that... gee, while they have it in the shop... might as well get the 2-3 oldest tires replaced... good thing I thought of that tonight... I keep forgetting about how old the tires are... on a car, we never change them out unless they go flat....
Seriously, I am going to have to do something about the ceiling and one wall here pretty soon...now that we have the leak stopped...I can tell there had been water sitting up in the ceiling....don't like droopy ceiling sections...will have to address the tire issue also.

You certainly have the mutant spirit! Adapt - Adjust - Relax and Mutate. Or something like that. Ha!
