But limbs and such up top.... and grass and rocks on the ground... we have cell phones and handheld radios... signals etc. Still need chameleon eyes...

The group RVMutants were honored tonight by having their small contingency photographed center stage by none other than Event Organizer, Driver, at the IRV2 National Rally.

Evenin Muteys!

Wow we are a chatty bunch. 39 pages of ketchup. Forgive me for not reporting in sooner but you know a doctor's work is never done. Thanks to all of you for checking on my bride. I'm happy to report she is feeling better so drugs are working well. This has really knocked her down so it's gonna be a slow climb back to normal but she is headed in the right direction.

Wow we got an official mention at the big ralley........that's totally kewl! You mutant ambassadors represent us well. Thank you for your representation of mutantdom!

Mel go for it dude, hope that RV has your name all over it. I have to echo what others have said though. Don't let size fool you. You won't know the difference when it comes to driving it but there is a huge difference in the living ability with the extra footage. Ours is 39' and I wish I had another 4-5 feet.

Les that kitchen re-model looks great. I think we need a large contingent of mutants to decend on you next Spring to put that kitchen to test.

Sue.....woooohoo you look mighty sharp in that evening gown. Martin better keep you on his arm till it's safe to turn you loose again.

Dwayne get with the program dude.... You need a ball and chain..... er I mean a wife! You gotta catch there.

Well I got to retire cause I have laundry duty tomorrow. Lord knows how that gonna turn out. She may never get sick again... Or she might use that as an excuse to go play cards( credit cards) to buy new clothes when she gets better.

Adios Mutets...enjoy the rainbow!

Mel,

I've been to a HUGE Good Sam Rally in Phoenix and the Grande Curiosity last April at Charlotte's Landing in Arkansas.

There was big name talent (Bill Cosby, one nite) in Phoenix as well as tons of people and hundreds of vendors in Phoenix. It was pricey! RVers as a group are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.

Mutants are the cream of RVers and the 10 days I spent with them in AR were almost magic. It was if I had known these 45+ people forever and I was sad to see them leave. It was like being with family, but without all the baggage.

I won't be attending any more rallies, but will be attending every curiosity I can. And I agree with you about dessert.

I found it amusing how we all said goodbye, then kept hopping out of our vehicles to hug again or stopped down the way to say goodbye and got stuck talking for longer than we should have... just goes to show the parting isn't easy when you find kindred spirits...

I'm still missing everyone... and while I don't say much about SOGC.... @ TBDRVPark and Curiosity Emporium - I have been collecting info - Intel - and paying attention to travel plans of mutants who share...

Which reminds me... A wizard has disappeared.... poof - Moonrover - come in... Moonrover.

And Long Strange Trip --- Old Me - Still upright are ya...

And this reminds me - Barb made the formal - and yet unenforceable request for Mutants to check in weekly... Ok we can't make ya - but if ya just said Hi... we'd know we didn't need to send the dogs out or alert the RVM SWAT Squad *** SO WHERE ARE THEY ***

And that's all have to say about that....

Good Night and Good Mutations...

The differences between 30 and 40 feet are minimal in driving - and major in living. Even if not a DP - then get in a big A gasser - but don't let the size scare you. At least give it a try. The dealer will put you in one to test with someone to coach you. If you get down the road and can't do it (highly doubtful) you can pull over and let them drive it back.... Just sayin.... ah never mind - girls can't drive big rigs �� and KIDDING...
Steve, Steve ... you live with Annie, I live with Kate. Reason has nothing to do with it. Kate has a certain comfort-level with this whole project. Some of it is her perception of the financial side of it: Class C Ford V10 Triton less expensive in the shop than a Class A diesel; mpg better in Class C than Class A and over course of a year could add up to a few hundred bucks. Etc, etc. Then there is her perception that she can drive a C, but not an A.

Actually, though, your point is well taken. I think I'll suggest to her that we go for a test drive, as you suggest. Maybe if we test-drive both in the same afternoon she will see and feel the difference enough to consider an A. There are SO many more As out there to choose from than there are Cs!

She has said that she would be willing to look at an A in a couple of years. I'll suggest we push that to now.

Herb Glad the Bride is feeling better.....Laundry...not a problem......just follow directions....her's of course.

Dwayne...I did try and read all 21,000 posts when I first joined...musta missed the YES.....my sincerest apologies.

Sue thanks for all the great photos....

Les....Great Job!!! Bet you got brownie points to last until you retire....or at least until you buy that next rig.

The RVMdom contingent did us proud.....you rock

Thanks to DriVer and IRV2 for including them!

Mel I think the urges from the STMs about a longer coach are right on...Heck I'm only me and I want a 45 fter...coach that is.

Hope I didn't miss anybody....you guys are such a bunch of hens....oops I meant real talkers....sometimes.
