Ditto for the floors and walls - just a little push to see if there is a suspicious "give"

If the unit has a basement, crawl in and look up - check the floors out from this viewpoint as well

Herb - you guys have watery eyes etc.. I don't watch the weather enough to know if there is pollen or what in the air... but they do mow around here all the time... and that's a dust up and a half. Plus with us digging under beds and backs of closests I guess we're stirring it up ourself... Claritin isn't helping... Geesh...

Annie looks as excited as if it was her first bike. That is way cool.....

Try washing/flushing your eyes with saline solution.... As a long time contact lens wearer, i know it helps.... Dust or pollen, yes... You can buy individual one time use..... And yes even if watery, there is an irritant causing the watering, I try to keep some, just in case... Also keep eye wash....

As soon as you hear from anyone else, let us know.... Will most likely be able to make Rockport....

Forgot to mention... the eye doc gave me some drops and I have some. He said the same thing and also - that if something - like a medication is causing your eyes to be dry they will "water" more to compensate for the dryness. Amazing...

So I have not heard from others yet on Rockport other than the high probability of Sandee and Don. We shall see. We shall see. Speaking of wee.... if anyone sees her - tell it's time to come home.

That's just so sweet!
Oh, and Steve... helps if you rememeber to take the allergy stuff about a half hour before getting into the allergans. Take a dried(desiccated) liver tablet 3 times a day too... don't know why, but it helps!

Lol.... With those cycle shoes, she might have had an uhoh.... I learned my lesson on that a long time ago.... Too many skinned toes..... Did she have money? She might be shopping since she has great baskets to carry stuff...

Be sure and get her a cable lock.... Ours has a keyless combo that fits in the basket. OR we can yse it to lock the kayaks down too...... Even riding to the library.... Someone might else might like it.... Also inscribe her initials on the underside of a bumper in case of need to identify.... Rv parks might be safe, but i dont trust people much anymore.... Sadly.

My thanks to Colleen and Don for showing us all the way to the best meat market EVER!

This is what I look for at the end of my rainbow....

Mel

Hey, Mel! X2 on the happy anniversaries and such. Like you, I cannot keep up! Rainbow riding has priority right now ✌️👏👍

Yeah, get that RV and let's get together and mini-C so much that folks get envious!

You better not EVER drive a class A. Nonono!
When I drove my 1st A after a decade with a C, I had synapses firing like fireworks. All of the positives about the handling, visibility and maneuverability of an A were TRUE! I damage stuff much less now with my 42 A than I did with my 23 C.
When you test drive a C, do a same length A. Well, maybe you better not. 😉
The idea of the RV driving course is wise in any case, as is reading the CDL training manual.

We are now in Woodland Park, CO at Diamond Campground. $17/nite for 5 nites with PA rates, and a really fine place. Pics later.
May extend a bit here and then go straight to Moab UT. Red wants to get dirty!

Later, STMs!

Happy anniversary.

I'll be the primary driver, but there may be times when she has to drive and I want her to be comfortable doing it. So, we'll stick with looking for a 29'--32' Class C mini mh. [...]

Mel, there are a lot of small Class-A's out there. Example: 2014 ACE Class A Motorhome Floor Plans (Best Class A & C RV). Just do a search on the words, 'small Class a motorhomes'

Miss you both - come join us. Presently in Apple Vally, MN.
