Soooo sorry.... As the other RVMís said, our fur babies are our family... Keep us posted...

Ah Steve, beginning in the Early 1960's with KH-7 that had a 2-3 feet resolution, and then KH-8 in '66 with a less than 4 inch resolution. As the diameter of the optics were reduced from 3 to 2.4 meters, the resolution was 6 inches before degradation. Present day satellites still have a 5-6 inch resolution.

For further information, ask, or tune to Google and the words Keyhole Satellite.

I'm so snart!

p.s., actual paper development of satellite imaging by DOD started around 1955. Those producers sure like to embellish in their movies and tv shows, don't they?

Best wishes and OOOOHHHMMMS to Mo, and we hope to see you all some day. :-)

Hoping Honey has nothing serious going on. Sheesh!

Glad Bonnita has resolved her incontinence.

And now....a story.

We got a 90-day temp tag when we bought Gwen, good until 4/20. The dealer said we could get a 1 month extension at the AZ MVD.

So we went to the MVD in Sierra Vista yesterday and they said "no, your dealer needs to get that for you". After 1/2 day of phone tag, reached the dealer who said "no we cant".

Not much sleep last night sweating bullets with visions that we will be illegally driving Gwen 2400 miles back to PA. One fender bender or citation and then what?

So today we go to MVD in Tucson, wait an hour, sweating. Literally!
We get called to the booth and I play it straight. "Hi, we need to get the 1-month extension on the 90-day temp tag".

"Okay" he says, pulls out a form, fills it out, stamps it and says "thats 15 bucks". 2 minutes and we are outa thare!

I am very relieved and very tired and ......really excited about the GC with all of you STMs!

The kimono opens in 9 days!!!!

Dave - excellent job jumping over the red tape. When a mutant takes things by the throat, there is no limit to what can be accomplished. Job well done!

I seen Barb today, and she was east bound and down, loaded up and trucking, she's gona do what they say can't be done. She's got a long way to go, and a short time to get there. She's east bound, just watch ol Barb and Sena run. I didn't think it was her at first, I couldn't see Smarty hiding back there behind the rig until it was almost going by me. And Barb you didn't even wave! And your windows are tinted so dark, I couldn't tell if you are Sena was driving. About 10:30 am between Wakenney and Hays Kansas on I70.

Wow - she didn't even wave.... Must have been Barb driving cause Sena would have waved!

Don - remember me telling ya about the two days I spent in Wakenney. Pretty sure I have occupied the same lane and place as one or both of ya... Have not been to the casino or mud races at Rosebud in a long time. The next stop was Valentine Nebraska and points beyond. Great driving territory at the right time of year.

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.
Hey, Don,

The Bird's new radiator, though not yet installed, is now sitting on the driveway. Like any good STM this raises my optimism and I am now sufficiently confident that it will install leaklessly.

Therefore, if you are foolish enough to believe that there is any money left after the radiator people picked my bones, I hereby authorize you to drawn on my bank account funds necessary to secure a desirable location at Cooper Lake. I also authorize bacon to cover your illegal money lending fees.

Thanks! jne

No diagnosis yet when I emailed DH at work this afternoon... then he came home and took off flying, so no clue about that...he should be home shortly and I can ask again...

Wow Don... I imagine Barb was really concentrating on the road if she didn't see you... and, you must not have made enough nuisance of yourself to get her notice!

Well I knew she was in the area from her last post about overnighting at the Wakenney rest area. I was headed west towards Oakley, and low and behold the first RV I see was her. Then a few miles later I meet another RV about like hers, but no toad at all behind it. I would of flashed my lights if I would of known sooner. Anyway my first real live RVM sighting. She may be in your neck of the woods now, I think she said something about Topeka as the next stop.
