Now let me know more about the rally, where etc. as we may be in area a undetermined time.
Yeah I am slowly starting to agree with the MH concept - push a button and you are camping - spend a overnight in a Wally world WITH A/C because you have a inverter and genny on board - lots and lots and LOTS of advantages over a 5er.

Problem we have ATM is our Rockwood is so over-modded, Forest River wouldn't recognize it Hell, I have even installed a home made slide out drawer in the basement We will need to find a experienced RVer who appreciates all these finer things in life so we can get a good deal when we trade up!

Les, are you making a TV show out of your RV trades? Don is a car buff and his TV is usually on the Velocity channel. They have a series where this guy starts out with a cheap car and keeps trading up to a very expensive car (Maserati?). Last one I noticed was an old VW bus that he made an $1800 profit on.

I think of you every time that show is on. LOL

Annie just pointed out that Christmas may place home town demands on some so date is flexible - even to Valentines Day... or so..
Cruises are out of our acceptable venue file. Even if they would let her aboard, travel outside the USA would make her an illegal alien with zero chance or getting a green card.

Y'all have fun!

Yes! Wheeler Dealers Trading Up. I love that show. I watched a lot of TV for 3 months recuperating, and that was one of them.

Don't they have "cruises" or "resorts" for our fur faced friends - where they get a holiday from us while we get one from them... ???

I know each situation is different - and it's hard to leave them - but when I had Lhasas' I did kennel them from time to time. Sena may not be possible at all... just curious.

As soon as I clear some more space on this phone, I can take more. Our room at the Holiday Inn (would you believe!) faces the Solent and the area where the Emerald Princess will dock tomorrow morning.

Welcome to the most recent Holders of the Broom! Glad to have you here!

Cheers!

And darn that Steve for being able to meet you two before Nola and I could!

We had 2 fine days with Colleen and Don (KSCRUDE) and on Sat we meet for German lunch with Martha and Bob (MartySQ). Woot-woot.
Hey, Dave. We are chomping at the bits to get this journey going. But, alas, we must be patient. Kate retires December, 2015. Actually, that will be here before we know it!

See you're from PA. I went to grad school at Duquesne Univ. in Pittsburgh. Loved a lot of things about PA. Was there for 3 years. Let us know if you're ever traveling through our neck of the woods (NW Texas or south central NM) and we'll meet up. Hopefully, we'll have our rig purchased before the first of the year.

For now, I spend 1/2 my time perusing RVTrader and the like. After we get the rig, we'll save up some time off and maybe go park for a week or two somewhere that we can meet up with a few Muties. I'm really looking forward to meeting some of you Rainbow Chasers! And I gotta meet Barb. She is my new hero and role model and I haven't even met her. Anyone who has a pet monkey is a certifiable free spirit. And I like anyone who is a free spirit!

Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar.
All for the Mutants, stand up and holler!!!

Mel

Time to MOTATE!

Getting ready to pull the jacks up and slides in. Heading for Monticello, IN for about 3 weeks of time in my brother in law's summer home while the coach is at the goodies shop for a new floor. ETA back on the road is the 18th of September.

Not sure how much internet we will have so catch ya'll when we can. SAFE TRAVELS to all!

Such a deal!

The remotes on our Sleep Number bed were analog and the displays had died... they were hard wired and needed to be replaced.

Called Sleep Number and for $120 we have a new pump, hoses and 2 new digital / wireless remotes on the way.

That was a surprised. I thought it would be more.
