I have a small inexpensive video camera that I don't know how to use and am not sure where the instructions might be. My past attempts of trying to commit anything to fil... Uh, digital media card have been thwarted by RVM Head Mascot, Sena.

Should anyone care to give it a go, I'll gladly hand it over. My iPad will also do video, and I will lend it to anyone sober enough to take great care with my only means of mutation communication. And I will probably have to have someone transfer said video to another storage device. I do have a connection kit for the old iPad that doesn't possess a camera. Wrong plug issue. I can get an adapter if someone will let me know tonight so it has time to be shipped. I don't shop in electronic stores as they don't have customer reviews next to each product and I have learned the hard way not to trust the children who work in them.

I have connections to both ipads... I use Ipad 2... Larry has the newer... We have the hdmi connectors for both.... I have all of the other connectors but only for mine.

I also use two different photo/video apps to transfer between iphone, ipad and laptop. I would fill the cloud up too fast... Tried it and immedistely it was soo full it rained..... So prefer this way.... Can pick and choose, my rainbow....

Could also publish videos to you tube......

Saguaro Nat'l Park revisit

Went back to Saguaro Nat'l Park; hey it's free for old-tards!

Many more blooms out, but the peak will not come for a while after we leave, darn it. Maybe next year we can stay a little longer!

So here are a few more new blooms, a nice view of the seed fronds of the Velvet Mesquite, even with bugs robbing some pollen. The prickly pear cactus blooms are very interesting. The start out pink, turn a lovely peach color, and then the final glorious yellow.

And a couple of fellows we met on the trail.

Hey Barb, instructions can be gotten on the Internet. All you need is the model number of the camera, so don't give up on it. I'll look at it when we meet and give you advice as to whether it is worth keeping.

Also, don't buy anything for the iPad. I have a bunch of conversion connectors for the iPad1 and the iPad 4, so anything in-between also. We can determine what you need, use one of mine and if it pans out you can then go spend your easily earned money.

Sound okay?

p,s, just read Dianne's post. DITTO. Hee hee!

Yeah! Ask me. I programmed the TomTom for the address to Timber Lodge Resort, New Waverly, TX. Earlene programmed the iPad for the same. I had looked at the map yesterday and my recollection was that the resort was East of I-45, but both GPS's sent us West. So here we were on this narrow back road and now where to turn around for miles. My option was to stop in the road and unhook, then be able to turn around. However, Earlene said there may be an intersection a few miles up that possilbly could be used for a turn-around. I any case we could unhook. A few more miles we found an abandoned gas station and we were able to make th swing. Finally we arrived at Timber Lodge Resort. Hey, PA at $12 a night FHU. Quiet and peaceful. Only 4 RV's in the place.

Sometimes, GPS's just are not good. I have several more stories for the sit-around talks.

They were SERIOUSLY licking up a lot of bugs. I took about 40 shots to get these two. They really moved fast! I suspect they are a couple. About 10 inches long, they are.

About 2008, was sent on a mission to a new customer and was loaned a Tom-Tom. It told me to turn down a walking path in a city park. I used a map!

Hello, STMs:

It has been a while since I posted. We went for our first trip of the season last weekend, and though we had a few issues, it was glorious weather and good to be back behind the wheel of the beast.

We tried to install two recliners, but they didn't fit, so they went back to the store. We have ordered two from Bradd and Hall, and they are being made to match the interior ultra leather. They should be here in four to six weeks.

We got our corn hole boards, and played corn hole with our friends that joined us for dinner Saturday. That was fun!

We developed a gray water line leak right before the valve gate, as well as a leak in the sprayer on the kitchen sink faucet. We called Thor, and they authorized our local mobile mechanic to conduct the repairs, and they overnight shipped a new kitchen faucet. I can't say enough about Thor's customer service. They could have made us take it to an authorized service center, but the closest one is nearly 100 miles away, and it would cost more in gas than it will be to pay the mechanic. So, Serenity is getting fixed and this weekend we're out camping again.

The Easter Bunny is hiding eggs at camp this weekend, and all the kids and grandkids are coming for Easter dinner - sandwiches, salad, and all the Easter candy you can hold.

I will miss all you STMs, although I know you're going to be having a blast.

We are getting married on the 23rd, so while we will miss you, we have some celebrating to do!

G'Night all!
