Shadows are still long up here, even this late in the morning, but not so long as when a hiker took this dawn photo:

Looks photoshopped, but isn't, unless the National Parks folks were fooled. (I'd attribute, but typically have forgotten the man's name.)

Next time I'm in Japan...well, no, I prolly won't be trekking up Mt.Fuji at all, let alone before daybreak!

Good find and to think - ya came by due a frustrating mix up on their part... 👍

Great deal! We'll second the notion that it's a great addition. We also have a Splendide stack unit, and while the full-length cupboard it fills would be very useful, it's still a good tradeoff.

Congratulations!

No matter. Still got a steal of a deal. I happy!
Hey Les !!!!

You got a smokin deal, thankfully our Beaver came with a combo splendid model 2000 I think in fact I just put $300 in repairs to it, but its well worth having. If I didn't have it I wouldn't miss it, but since we have it we are going to use it.

Cheers !!!!!

Not this year Dwayne... but perhaps next year I wanna go to the Grand Canyon and fly with Bob in his powerchute over and around it, and some other cool looking from above places in the area and on the way there and back.

My wife usually brings her wardrobe so I had to beef up the rear suspension! LOL (just kidding)

As we don't full time, our trips at max are only a few weeks. We usually have enough clothes on board to make it through. The main thing we like about it is to dry our bath suits and towels after swimming in the local lakes, pools, etc.

It was just a bonus getting something this new with tons of new features and barely used for the great price.

Well the records here at RVM Central indicate 3 Mutants will be in AZ this winter. 2 are named Dave and 1 named Jeff - and they have Deb, Marcia and Nola to keep em straight (not necessarily in that order.) Annie and I plan on being there the following winter... unless we are in Florida or RGV or.... Hmmm. Who needs plans...

OK Mutant photographers... the 5 lessons in the NYIP that I won't miss - I suppose - if I have to admit - film is gone - silver halide is history - and digital is here to stay - until the next tech advancement comes along.... the Mutant Motorhome Wide Angle Windshield Hologram Capturing Device - or MMWAWHCD 😫

A SQUEEGEE in the shower? Yep..... we got one too. Our stackables get their work out every trip. Doesn't matter how much we pack, a load gets run every other day.

Great Mutant Minds sometimes agree... and the squeegee is probably one of those 80/20 rules - 80% have one in the shower... The other 10% have it on the shopping list...
Chuck - I saw your suggestions in the TN area for SOGC - you too Marty, and others... I will cut and paste when I get a moment. Right now I'm moving CDs from Jewel cases to CD binders made by the Slappa company. Have 3 binders and going to need one more. I have a 2 T external hard drive to digitize music to - but no time. Can't even take time to organize them by genre... the humanity....

Just remember.... there will be some things that you can do to occupy quiet time on the rainbow.

Knowing I'm not a RVM yet...problem is the only way I can answer the first question is that the only thing that I don't have and but need is the RV. Otherwise "the journey is the destination".

That said I thought after your post above I just couldn't resist to say...

Glad you're well

I'd take it that the Bacon Toddy diet is just the treatment for a AOK diagnosis?? Just goes to show them doctaries don't know everything I guess.
