So I got her these things for Christmas - Birthday - Valentines - etc. Now that we're married I need to figure out what to get her for our anniversary. Maybe an outside refrigerator so she doesn't have to walk so far to bring me a beer... I thinks we have a bay with room...

Hmmm.

Sure! They were great ... just perhaps a tad loud for some of us (ahem) older folk with delicate ears. And maybe louder than the neighbors cared for.

Good musicians, good dancing, good fun! I'd give you an "Oh Yeah!" on it.

Mel... so far, we have had only 1 Grande curiosity... which was in April at Catherine's landing in Arkansas. Steve currently is compiling all of our suggestions for another next year. After he retires and gets out on the rainbow full time... he will look at those suggestions and make a suggestion which we all will readily agree to... and the planning will commence.

There are smaller curiosities that occur all over the rainbow, whenever, wherever mutants cross paths. Barb, Sena, Lily, Bob, Bess, and I had one here at my house prior to the Grande curiosity when Barb was making her way cross country to the big event.
I suggest you take advantage of those smaller type opportunities to get your feet wet slowly. It is not so overwhelming to show up at a Grande event if you personally meet a few folks first so you at least recognize a body when you get there.

Planning the Son of the first Grande Curiosity(second) is challenging due to mutants living in 2 countries at this point and spread out across those 2 countries east to west and north to south and some of those mutants are still paying into the social securitiy funds for the others 5 days a week with limited rainbow riding time..... we are going to try and get a different spot that will make it more feasible for some of those other mutants to join us... I am sure Steve would accept all the help offered.
Our gathering needs aren't that difficult... a large pavillion with electicity for our crock pots, bands etc.... or such place for party time/ meals... large enough pads/electric for those with large rainbow riders, and of course furry family member acceptance, and acceptance of some vintage age units... then there is the Sena provision... she can't leave the country and get back in safely and some states don't like her...but she is our mascot and is always to be considered!

^^^^ Marty - so well said!


When I talked to Don and Colleen last night I mentioned that I might get cabin fever if I sit the whole 4 months in RGV - his immediate response was - I could sit 6 months at Catherine's Landing...

I'm not sure if that was an endorsement of the place or the curiosity / mutants in attendance... or both.

I really am looking forward to working this out and getting something on the books. It was so much fun to watch the excitement and enrollment grow last year. And then - it happened. The First Ever Grande Curiosity at CL... what a memory - what a fine group of mutants!!

Son Of GC will happen. Mark my words!

Just wanted to pop in to say hello. I miss all my fellow mutants but I'm having a good time. Dwayne is still hunting for deer that I think are only a myth here but he did take a day off to bring me to the beach. Had a prefect day and I even got him into the water, jeans and all.

Sending all my love and well wishes.

I hope Barb is feeling better and I'm glad all your test are coming out ok Steve

Tell Dwayne to be aware of deer with masks, snorkels and spear guns.

When we set up for 4 months last winter we got itchy at about the 3 month mark and pulled out about 10 days early. However we got there just before Christmas and a lot of folks were gone before we hit the 4 month mark. It got lonely.

Having the option to stay the 4 months just after retirement helped us immensely in learning more about our rig, hearing about places to go and just relaxing after a busy year getting ready for our travels. It was also highly cost effective (with the 4 months for the price of 3 deal for first time Wilder customers) unless you can compare it to BLMs and other very low cost places.

The travel fever gets especially serious at the beginning of March when the temps start to climb. That is especially true if you can plot a slow course to northern parts.

We love the new floors but...(Don't cha hate that)

We may have run into a technical difficulty that might require a trip back to the installer. 3 of the 4 slides might need new rollers.

The 2 bedroom slides now go up on tile instead of carpet and that appears to have caused one roller mount to fail. That guarantees a trip to somewhere to repair that. The installer and I are talking about a proper remedy and I think they will do what it takes to get it right. STUFF HAPPENS. The most likely answer will be some additional ramping for the rollers just prior to the tile plus a slightly smaller roller too.

The living room is probably OK but one side might benefit from slightly smaller rollers too.

This is distressing me a tad because of the timing more than any other reason. We are trying very hard to make it to the Drifters party in November with Steve, Annie and other STMs. I'm thinking we will still be able to make that date but won't know for sure until maybe next week when the me and the installers hammer out a plan.

Woooohoo can you just imagine Dwayne in a pair of shorts? I'll bet the fish would be blinded by the glare of stark white and skinny boneey legs! Careful Shara don't want you to lose your sight.
