You'll be surprised at how quickly you will learn how to waltz Matilda and next thing you know you'll be Waltzing Matilda all over North America. Welcome to the best side of the rainbow, RVM 81

My real problem is I phone OS is version 4.2.1 - and will go no higher on this 3S phone. There are apps I can't download due to the OS and iRV2 update is one. I was a fairly early iPhone adopter - but not a buyer of the next - next best thing. Remember - we just traded a 94 and 97 vehicle on a the CRV

We are thinking of splitting our phone accounts for going full time - 1 on Verizon - one on AT&T and who knows what. I have just held on to the old unlimited data and txt plan I have had for eons.... And with tech changing all the time - we are putting cell phones off until just before heading out on the rainbow.

We did take the RV 760LMT plunge last month! And the 2014 CRV plunge yesterday - so we are getting closer every day. BIG smile!

A friend who is moving away from Port Alberni posted this video of her and her hubby's last boat ride down the Alberni Inlet. I thought some of you would enjoy this so here goes

We went back forth on what - but in the end the Honda won us over. We didn't get many pics cause it was getting late - but I did catch the salesman putting the temp plate on.

Wow, I don't think I've ever used the terms tiller and snow blower in same sentence! Lol

Welcome RVM81. You have joined a great group here, and your name, if you'd care to share it, would be a fine thing to know. We are a friendly group and we use each other's first names when we can. Enjoy!

RVM81 welcome! Better say what you can now,cause this group will hardly let you get a word in edgewise! Just a warning about some of our posters, Diane has a hand problem that causes finger slips (misspelled words), Wayne and Sarah were both double knot spies in a former life, Marty is the only one that understands sarcasm, Jeff has a Jeep fetish but is a real song bird and most of what I say is sarcastic and extremely witty!

And a note from one of the newer members here, check in often because this thread moves awfully fast considering it is populated by a bunch of old farts.

I still have my unlimited data on my phone, but update it. My iphone 3g is with my mom, my iphone 4 is with Larry, i will update to next version in November, BUT my plan with ATT has NOT changed... As long as i dont change that i get to keep my unlimited data. My ipad is on a separate account.....

Good Morning Glassalley...... Great to meet you, and so sorry on your loss. But this is the group that will make you laugh and cry, but are like family. We are all over North America, which means we are on at all hours, some are FT, some are still at w$$k.... We do have a few youngsters joining in. We dont care..... As long as you get us....... And WE are worth getting to know.....

Tim is still waiting on a sarcastic button...... I am the SFM..... which is funny since I am a retired teacher.....

So share your name at least, share rest when you feel comfortable....


Diane is a retired SFM........... (Sliding Finger Mutant) duh!
