That jobs behind me! Y'all have fun! Next I'll be emptying out the lake only items in basement and begin my planning for IRV2 National Rally and points in between summed up with the arrival of grand child #4 in AL in Oct.

Of course I made up for it by going to the GC and then returning via Yuma, AZ -- about 6,000 miles in 2 months. I don't want to know my mpg on that trip. Too many mountain ridges crossed. I just pay the AMEX bill when it's due and be thankful for all the fun we had and all the wonderful people whose faces I now know when I read about their trials and tales here.
But when you do travel, you really do travel!

Ha Barb, seems you and I were the two most vocal ( irritants ) to Steve on trying to get a date and place set for the next GC. Maybe we can sneak one in while he's off on honeymoon! Lol Yellowstone area sounding good for the Canukes.
Sure glad he doesn't read personalized messages, don't want to get his pressure up!

Maybe measure the distance between the screws and then look for someplace there are holes the size of those screws that far apart. Whatever it is, it has to be 1/4" or less thick. Right?

Hmmm ... let me analyze those thoughts. The steel braces (if thats what they are) weigh about six pounds each. Sort of husky for an aluminum awning bar. Also, I don't have an awning !!

Maybe they are clamps to flatten out a snake for skinning. Whatever they are, they show no signs of wear like they have been used on anything moving, vibrating, or bumping around.

They are going back in my shop for storage on the "gotta keep but don't know why" shelf.

Ok buddy - I hear ya pokin' ----
So for the record - I'm looking at lots of travel plans for next year Tim. With inserting full time in November - the planning currently includes making it to Fleetwood in spring to have them run through Bonita Bounder (maybe see Steve and Mary Ann) and am considering Gaffney for the Freightliner Camp and thorough going over too. And how soon can I get all that done after first spending some time with Annie's Mom and Dad. AND then - where and when will we be able to get to / for the Super Duper ExtraOrdinary Son of GC.

Of course I could just let her fall apart around my ears and fill er up with black water like some folks do - but we're actually going to live in her.... 😂

Wyoming is nice - and I promise I will get back on this as soon as I can. In fact, Dave and I were discussing it AGAIN today!

He is a swallow - and Capistrano is in PA and winter is AZ. So for he and I to cross paths is the first part of the geometry or calculus or algebra. Now if neither of us attend - then you have another animal all together. But as I said - we have been discussing it.

Now I am going to try to make it to McCall Idaho - McCall RV Resort by mid to late August --- and head to AZ for winter on the slow roll. It looks to be a beautiful place but may be too west and to expensive for some but it is nice.

It's perfectly acceptable for you or any RVMs to plan a curiosity - and we would make it if we can. But I have a few balls in the air and plates spinning on sticks and a bowling ball and chain saw are about to come into the mix. And, I just saw a monkey and a dog go by on bicycles. It's a circus right now is the point, and it's difficult to assess everything right now.

Keep yer shirt on or plan away, but what ever ya do.... don't forget yer back washing the black water tank. 👍👍

102 days and counting. 🙏 and 10 days till 👰😎 And believe me - I am as excited and anxious about things - and that includes the FE EO SO GC as anyone. In fact - we're about to make Curiosities a Way of Life. It's already an Art Form! 🎶

The rainbow shines bright over the RVMdom mutants! The day will come. Mark my words. Sure as the black tank hath flowed backwards into Tims coach, the SOGC will happen and it will be Grand!

All the best muteys!!!

I knew I could smoke you out!

I've been trying to keep up with this group with only my phone and since fat fingers seems to run in lots of us Arkies I seldom posted. I'm home now, full wifi, IPad and full keyboard so I'm ready to make up for lost time.

Next project is to figure out a better way to travel with my RVM32 sign. It's so big it doesn't store easily, guess I should have gone with the Postage Stamp size sign like Wayney and Herbert. Hope to have it at the National Irv2 rally. Seems us and Virginiamtns might be the only mutants there.

Ok, enough for now. But remember when things get to going too smooth I'll be a poking at you.

R U an RV Mutant too?

I am issuing an RVM CHALLENGE!!!!!

Where shall we have Son of GC@CL?

If every RVM puts in one suggestion in the NEXT 2 WEEKS, we will have a lot of ammo to work with.

One me and one Steve cannot have as many ideas as a bunch of STMs, ya know? YOUR INPUT and ideas can make a HUGE difference.

How about giving us a boost and put a bunch of suggestions in at www.rvmutants.com

Spotted you on the list last night after I made that post! Been so busy so far this year just now getting around to planning this trip. If I can find a way to travel with my billboard size sign I assure you, you will have no problem spotting us!

However...

It appears that the fall I took a few weeks ago when I was sick has taken its toll on my back so we will head back to Champaign, IL on July 21st for up to 6 weeks of evaluation of my back, therapy and if needed surgery. The surgery is not a given but a possibility.

Don't worry....it will all work out in the end.

It opens up some options for us to attend another IRV2 function in September put together by the Hoots. From there we can work on visiting family in GA and then meander to TX by November.

No one said the rainbow was straight path but we find it is always interesting.
What happened to your skyrig? And what did you do to you back? Why you falling down? You know better... i think you just hurt your back while putting out those 5 satellite dishes
