Hey Dave - I know but was sort of working around the idea of heading up to Annie's mom and dads place ASAP in the spring. I can go from here to the RGV and to her parents house in fewer miles than from here to Tucson.

Just trying to get my head around the idea of what it means to be free. Hard to say - let's start off our adventure this way..... Hmmm

Herb says there is a tree we can bleed goats from and dig a pit in the back yard. There is nothing like cooking a goat in the ground with a fire on top. We can probably do something similar with a shark or two we catch off the TC dike.

I'm looking forward to this....
As you turn the corner to get to my house, 4 houses down from the corner, be careful not to hit the police car parked out front a the corner house. Now, with my son and DIL staying at the house, be careful of the GSD when you enter the yard.

With that said, there is 50 amps out front at the driveway, but there is an 8 inch drop from where your back wheels will be and the front wheels. The driveway is 45 feet long, so you''ll have to be under that limit.

Run the sewer line out to the street please, but be aware it is against the law. However, there is a clean-out in the back alley and it is 120 feet from the front street to the back alley. It's against the law to sue it, also. Now there is a free dump site about 3 miles from me run by the city. It's right next to the shooting range, and they are my friends and I know what you drive.

Come On Down! Weather will be hot.

Now for Winter, me thinks we are also going to head to some warmer climes. Been thinking of Florida as we have not really explored much of it. I'm not ruling out the RGV though. As for corpus, just to darn windy. Been there 3 or 4 times and the wind was 45-52 mph at times. Had to bring the slide in on the windward side. Just to much wind.

I was not going to be on this forum/thread this evening but Earlene was reading it and mentioned some possible visitors while we were gone. I thought I might as well stay up another 20 minutes and see what she was talking about.

Glad I did. Where can I buy those road spikes?

Don - did ya get my food bomb text. When Annie talked to Sandee this afternoon she was telling her about us cooking all the time. Inside - outside the RV like the ancient mutants using FIRE.... It's just part of going on the road for us. Plus we are foodies and love to cook anyway.

RVM1 and were texting about gourmet salt the other day. We have taste tested many on thin slices of cucumber. Yum.... salt

Then there are the many infused oils - vinegars and on and on.... but Marty - Sue - Di - Colleen (Sohapi's thread) are the true chefs of the RVMdom. Which reminds me - as soon as We slow down on the retiring and going full time schedule -- I have a cookbook to compile

All that was to say this - ya know we're thinking of brotha and sista.

Here ye all Mutants - near and far -
Annie has given in and on July 18th we will be married. She has put up with me for about 14 years now so I guess she knows what she's doing. I am a lucky mutant!

And that's all I have to say about that - for now anyway!!

I guess I'm the distance traveling mutant -- PNW summers and SE of Tampa in the winter. I'll leave the summer nest by mid-late September. First stopover will be Burns, OR to see the delighful family that adopted us for the night on the trip north. Then, like Dave (RVM1), I'd like to try a journey thru southern Utah. That's all weather permitting. Due to the altitude there, cold weather comes quick, but the landscape has much that is mutant

Then comes Henderson, NV to see a college friend and across I-40 to the old stomping grounds, OK City. Then south to North Texas to see my baby brother and on to Conroe, TX to see Mom, youngest brother and nephew, Kohl.

By mid October the plan is to go squat at Teffy's place in SE TX for a few days with as many mutants as we can drag along for a generously delightful Curiosity of a somewhat smaller scale than we saw in Arkansas.

From there we'll head east for a mini-C with CrowdedCampr in southern GA, before checking in with old monkey friends in the sunshine state. We'll stay put there until early April.

Anyone tired from just reading all this? Oh, and don't forget about all the history and sights to see along the way. That's what makes the 3500+ mile trip worth it.

I may have to get a crank organ and a cup for Sena to take donations if gas prices don't start coming down.

Thanks Dennis. So the trout fit two to a pan but weren't too tasty huh... So here's the secret recipe for camp cooked fresh trout.

Find large flat rock (or two). Build campfire. Get rock good and hot. Toss some bacon on rock. Toss trout filets on top of bacon. Be sure smoke and bacon are generously applied to to filets - add a little pepper - salt if the bacon didn't do that job - and if ya have a lemon ok - but if not you won't miss it. This is my mutant trout method. Been doing it for years. It does take just the right flat rock though....

And thanks again! Glad ya got off and stretched a line. Fishing is mutation in motion!

I'm not trying to be mysterious but we are not in a position to say more at this time. Let's just say that perhaps we are in the right place at the right time and can improve the situation we landed in. Never the less, we are in a most stressful situation. We didn't see that one coming and are still trying to sort it all out on what we need to do next.

Thanks for your support. It sucks when there is a crack in the rainbow.
Yikes! Who said "Life is what happens when you are making other plans." Can certainly sympathize, still trying to sort out the fallout from daughter's health issues and the longterm ramifications for our future. Hope things work out for you. Positive thoughts heading your way!

Thanks Les! She's flying home to mom and dads next Wed and won't be back until 7/9. I'm thinking if she comes back it's a go.

Thanks Barb. I've always been honest! Always been male - but still more a little kid than man. But I act big and grown up sometimes. It is hard to maintain though.
