Mel - bigger even than the Class A B C C+ ETC debate is the Diesel or Gas Debate. It will come down to youze... that's you and how you use it. So the hole in the whole thing is the... donut make ya crazy of I'll have a bacon donut please - sweet or savory... what's your preference... sorry about that �� I know it was no help.

That said - I am glad I at least said something... because you are asking the right questions and thinking out loud... there are lots of threads on the gas V diesel debate - and others can give their thoughts on it. Right now I have to go lower the bike rack on the CRV for Annie - she wants to pack some things in and take em to storage... cause - did I mention - I'm retiring and we're going full time Oct/Nov lol...

Good Luck...
PS - the first time I saw your "not a dude" signature - I thought - I know that... does she think I have lost my mind - and then I saw it again... and realized it was not directed at me.... Ok Wayne - Tim - Herb --- I opened the door on the status and location of my mind.... your turn. ��
Oh, a friendly, well-meaning fellow on the thread referred to me as "dude." I have to laugh. With a name like Mel, who knows if you're a dude or a gal?! Thus the "not a dude" tag. I'm done with it, though.

On to the very serious business of whether to look for a DP or gasser A. I will started reading posts about the pros and cons of both.

Steve, I am excited for you and Annie to lift off for your Rainbow adventure. WOW! We will be very interested to read and hear about life on the road.

Later, dude. ;-)
Mel

So, this evening, I sat down and chopped up a bunch of cucumbers and tomatoes and made the mix for Bloody Mary Kombucha... Oh my, I think the pico de gallo mix was a little strong on the peppers! whoo! I tried a little... if ya like it spicy... I'll save ya some! (I'll be cutting it with tomato juice I think when I have it after it ferments a bit until it gets fizzy...)
Marty - my BIL James from the GC is here tonight and we're having a few conventional drinks - he's asking if this is the same mix ya had at the Bloody Mary Morning at the GC ??? And if so - he wants me to be sure we get it into the RVM Cookbook. Remember these guys..

BTW - nice chatting this evening - turned out the interrupting call was not work but our fellow mutant Larry - Pushed Around ---

Hey Warren - better get that hot skin cured for it cures your skin... oh my..

I didn't get the happy meal but had to drink the junk and got the Verced with c-oscopy Wednesday.. wish I could say it was memorable but I don't remember a thing. Mind you - catch that hot skin just right and you'll be a distant memory. Be safe Warren..

So mutants - a pictorial challenge - show us your big rig in a State or Federal - Corp or Private park that comes close to wilderness - streams - mountains and such that others might think are unavailable in size 2 X or only at the Big and Tall store....
Ok, you had me laughing out loud ... again. But also pondering the possibilities. LOVE this process but want it to be over soon, too.

Oh, I'll forgive you if you have some fairy dust you can sprinkle in my coffee that will make me all-knowing or if you can introduce me to the Wizard of Mutantville who can tell me whether to buy a DP or gasser.

Forget it, Herb! Not a big deal.

Steve, can you put up that pic of Kate and me in the restaurant? Dude looks like a lady ... la la la la la ... :-D

(I hate doing this on my phone. Can't use the emoticons.)

Mel

Don't recall an official position as the Wizard of Mutantville....always leave that to the G Potentate.....He's in charge of the fairy dust.......well among other things that Annie permits.

Or down at all the mosaic designs over the graves of knights and bishops:Attachment 74283
At sailaway late in the afternoon:
Attachment 74285 For all its age , Valletta is still a busy modern port.

In short, Malta is a bit of an unusual destination, and not an RVer's place, but well worth a visit.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming now....

Cheers!

WOW... x10. Teriffic pics, Sue.
