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.
Well, you sure do get around, little lady!
You and I are similar in travel traits. We never let a few miles get in the way of the Journey!

Actually retiring may make your mind go even more retro, pal!
The moment I retired, I regressed in mental age to 14 years old. But, I consider that to be progress!
Nobody has more fun than a 14 YO! Keeps me younger in certain ways, me thinks. Anybody for a game of HORSE? Dodge ball?

Hay, STMs! What is your actual mental age?

Time to dust off the RV Mutant Lexicon and Phraseology Guide - and add ARVMMA

I would say for the guys "Fourteen or Foreteen" would be about right.

Barb and I and our kids all use an app called "Life 360" which we use to track each other using our phones GPS. You just click on a persons pic and it shows a map of where they are.

What we need is a mutant family app like that!

Well, funny that app topic came up... When Steve was asking for help with the Son of GC... I was thinking... ok, I have a list of where all the mutants say they live or are from... but that isn't really going to help us find a central local for folks because many of us don't stay put and are in the southern part of the continent during one part of the year and in the northern portion for another portion and the rest of the time somewhere in between! It's like trying to herd cats, trying to keep track of each others whereabouts! I wanted to print out a map and mark each home place and take a string and see if I could come up with something equitable for traveling... but that pretty much puts us in the midwest area for those from more coastal climes...

So, an app would be a great idea.... but I really don't think we should pay attention to dividing up the driving distance as then those in the midwest will always 'win' and some of us would like to see other parts of the country.
I think the solution would be having several GC's around the country at various times of the year! It will just take time to discover the places that work the best for our group get together styles and then we will have complied a list of places that work out. I believe Branson was mentioned once... but I've not camped in other than a state campground there and don't recall if they had a large shelter/pavilion type place... or what type of hookups, etc. I think we will just have to keep our eyes open as we camp and submit spots we have personally been to and think might work.
