Sparkys cousin Rocky came by with a moose today. They were talking about some guy named Boris and his lady Natasha. No mention of belly buttons.

I am pondering this for my 2013-14 winter project
Shop American Standard 60-in L x 32-in W x 19-3/4-in H Mainstream 1-Person White Rectangular Drop-In Whirlpool Tub at Lowes.com

I am even thinking I'd need a buch of hot water.
Maybe i'll need (2) 55 gal solar heaters. Of coures that means a 1-2 day heating time lead.

Dude!
Rocks and cartoon characters do not have belly buttons.
Check out Sparky. Does he have one? If so, is it an innie or an outie?

BTW, Bullwinkle is still a dope. His being my hero is not relevant.

First thing that came to my mind. That and someone to keep you awake and breathing.

And to save Walt a lot of money, they only have 4 digits on their hands.

Looks like it could be done. I saw this on an air tab thread some time back. Always wondered if they manhandled it off the lift - or how they managed to use / heat etc.

That 50 gallon garden tub will be missed, so we are just budgeting the occasional hotel stay with jacuzzi tub. Said it before - room service, a nice hotel bar, and swim up cocktail is not in conflict with the RVM lifestyle.

Let us know how it goes.

When I was looking at my Breeze, the sales lady took me through a lavender MH that had lavender everything, including a built in spa.

Dave - Sparky is comfortable around people but a little shy. Think we'll just have to wonder.

Great project. Does it come with underwater lighting?

I put in a full-sized tub in the bus, but didn't go for the upscale whirlpool model. Had to keep things low key to blend with the austere teachings of mutantdom. Let me know if you want to build an illuminated Corian tub surround. I sort of perfected my own method of rear lighting the translucent Corian. It would look nice with your bubbling bath.

Those people are serious party animals. Is that a folding tanning bed on the Jeep roof rack? They must be the Joneses ... I'll never be able to keep up with them.

One year at band camp... I mean the dunes, one guy brought a Sluprie machine and a bunch of Ta-kil-ya.

Not sure what that is, but if they're running with the hot tub full of water your odds of keeping up are better.

A couple years ago at the dunes, a guy brought one of those "Ring" pools with a side of water truck. It was a little cool and not many people used it; mostly kids. I don't know what the arraignment was, but the WT came back for the water at the end of the day.

The other option we had considered was dry camping at the softball field, but the ballpark had limited space and no shade at all.

Then we spent the week at our favorite local campground. It's become a routine almost--anytime we have been at a less-than-ideal campground, on the way home we will detour to enjoy a few days at Cypress Lake.

Even though we're not full timers yet, we have certainly spent more time camping than in the house this summer. It's winding down, though; school starts Aug 5.

Great to hear from the La contingency! Was wondering were you got off to. Here's my prose for the day...

The heat hung heavy over the DFW area today, like a bear skin coat on the 4th of July.

Hope you're having fun! Can't believe school starts that early. Is that teachers only - or kids too. I think Plano starts the 26th of August.
