And the Son of GC will occur later in the year - at a Location TBD - or in Dick Cheneys previously undisclosed location.
Now if it were "undisclosed" how would we find it?
Pick a date so I can apply for a "W" excused absence. Grouped by the pavilion works. Easier to tote stuff to and fro.

How did she respond to the RV show? "Ho hum" or "This one, no this one, oh THIS one! Could be her new favorite "the" store!

Cheers!

Had to order a magnetic step switch from thr dealer and saw the glyer for todays fall open house.

So it worked out great.... picked up the part, enjoyed a hog roast, looked at some 5th wheels, face painting and a pumpkin. Sue had a good time and found her trailer with a loft overlooking the galley.

The SOGC at CL sounds good to us. Count us in. Huddling around the pavilion works for us too. The huts would provide excellent accommodations for our RV less RVMs.

Gabbing with everyone 2 rows deep around a campfire sounds like great fun to me. I imagine some folks' rears got irritated by 3 -4 nights on picnic tables instead of comfy lawn chairs.

Regional GC or larger mini-GCs will get more popular as more mutants experience mutantism at the next GC and have a hankering for more encounters with like-minded people.

Bring on the fun.

You made me laugh and I couldnt think of a come-back. ;-)

The 2000 Newmar Dutch Star could actually work for us. I was distracted by a flirty '02 National Dolphin Chevy Workhorse gasser for a minute ... till Steve bopped me in the head and said, "Uhhhh...no, Mel! What are ya thinkin'???"

So I went back to the Newmar and realized it is WAY more solidly built, classy, etc. Not that the Dolphin was bad ... but it's not a Newmar. The Dutch Star has the 275 Cummins w/Allison tranny.(Don't know if it has the 2000 or 3000 Allison.)

It will need 6 new tires immediately (cha-ching ... $4,000-$5,000). Has hookups for w/d, but no w/d ... (cha-ching, $700-$1500.)

Pluses are numerous. But CCC a bit low at around 3,500 lbs. Maybe due to all the solid oak woodwork in the coach? Lots of it. A LOT of storage. Does have 2 slides. :-) Exterior pretty clean. Very minimal fading for a coach of its age.

Going to look at raising our price point by about $10k. Maybe find a coach with newer, good tires and a w/d already installed.

Thank, Steve, for the help and encouragement today.

Ken, any thoughts?

Music starts ...Lullabye, and goodnight...
Mel

Mel,

Just a quick thought. If everything else checked out on the coach, new tires and a new W/D would be less than raising your price point 10K. Plus you will have good tires for at least 5-7 years, so you should really amortize that cost over that period. IMHO

Now get some rest. I know you're all wound up.

Wayne I was on the eastern shore of md. Now we are on the road. But that salt water did some damage. To the coach's wiring. Had to rewire genny. And pig tail to toad and the front turn signal in the bumper rusted out and fell off and went under the tire. I fixed every thing so let's hope that's it!

Thank you... she is our only GD....so we do spoil her.

As far as not getting DDG guess I was running at 2 G just a little slow on the uptake.

Ouch! One of the things I worry about living on the Gulf Coast.

Oh my! I don't "facebook." I don't have any friends, boo hoo.
If you can email it to me I'll post it

Give me a holler some time, I lost your phone number when I transferred to the new phone.
Sent you a PM with home number.

Just checkin' in! Friday was a rare warm 70s day (for this time of year), so we did the trailer winterization. Now back to 50 as the high and close to freezing at night. All downhill temp-wise from now on! On the plus side, nothing to fix. Lots of trips this past summer and all systems performed flawlessly.
