Diane, the last week of April was chosen for the first GC mainly because the weather would be pleasant by then, but the rates were still "off season". That would change for different areas of the country depending on the climate and school schedule.

Campgrounds are delighted to book big groups in the off season. More perks, less cost.

Notepad on the iPad, or would that be nOtepad?



We need to have a secret headlight flash. Maybe flash flash flash (space) longflash longflash longflash (space) longflash longflash and it is SOM (Save Our Mutantdom)

Nah, someone would screw up the last one and mak it an "S."
Oh YEAH! I see a detour mini curiosity in my future! Looks like a great place. Checked out the location, close to lots of serious seafood!

We have Dec 1 through Mar 1 and three months got us the 4th month free should winter run long... Also - not so expensive that we couldn't leave early or take Bonita up the coast for a week or two "vacation" LOL. Really would like to see Rockport parks and visit Port Aransas too.

So our patch of "Tex-Mex blacktop" looks like this.

Yep. In RVMdom you two were the 1st ever to get hitched! It was memorable (for those of us that can remember ). For that, we salute you two again, and also thank you for paying into Social Security for those of us that are retired deadbeats.

RVM2 (Steve and Annie) may be only 2nd for the hitching but they are a very likeable sort that also hires, trains and supervises the RVM temps, and keeps all of us Rainbow Riders wonderfully entertained.

We already have added words to the RVM lexicon for this, but now the question is, when RVMs get hitched, should there be a ceremonial Right Of Passage Edict Dictation - Into Nuptuals (ROPED-IN)?

You may call this a ponder.

And to RE-coin a well-worn phrase...
And that's all I have to say about that.

It will take you about 2 - 3 weeks to settle in and not have it feel like another vacation. Once you begin to ask "what day is it?", you'll know you're getting accustomed to retirement and being a snowbird. Except I think you need to drive at least 900 miles to be considered a snowbird.

Congrats on your upcoming stating of your vowels. Like, where were Mary Ann and I when you announced that you and Annie were still just really good friends? We thought you were married. You acted married. You two didn't have that "dating mode" going on. I think this just puts your relationship in the final stage mode. Little will change. Annie will still let you know what you're thinking or what "your" decision is. LOL

Anyway, our joy is your joy. The rainbow is glowing brightly this day.
Thanks Steve - when we make the U Turn in the spring and head up to Illinois we will get our RVMFTRRW RVM Full Timer Rainbow Roamer Wings....

From there we are tentatively penciling in Decatur Ind - which I believe is Bonitas birth place - first Annie's, then Bonitas. And then a week or so at your house. Fair warned if you want to avoid house guests keep an eye out here for dates.....

So as for announcement of just being really good friends.... That's funny as we stopped being friends years ago! we graduated to best friends and soul mates long ago. She has had an engagement ring for almost as long as we have known each other. I am really a lucky man - as we don't act married - we just are. And that's all I have to say about that, for now anyway. I could not imagine life without her - and she humors me and says the same.

Thanks again - and we look forward to checking out your guest room!
Your Fishing Mutant Partners in Crime....
Steve and Annie

Actually the spring and fall are our favorite times to travel..... We usually just find a place to stop enroute, only do campgrounds when need to dump or decide we want to stay a while....
We like off season rates, but a lot of our stops are military bases.... The rest of the time we look for corp parks or state parks. Which is why I am not very familiar with rv parks and amenities... So while I wish I could make a GC suggestion, it would have no merit.......


Diane is the original SFM........... ( Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

What's a better term than midi to describe a Curiosity smaller than the Grande and more than a Mini?



All mutants are invited to join us.

Dang! Wish we could make that one. Sheesh!
So many places, so much time. Wait! That makes no sense. But we are stuck here longer than we want to be to get all in order for an orderly exit. :(

"Aim for the second star on the right and head that way till morning," I kinda remember these as my favorite directions from way back when so lets just stick with them after all the journey is the destination.

All in favor give me an "OH YEAH"

Makes sense for him to pick a place warmer than where he lives.
