Mel & Kate's new (to us) coach!

Here's a photo of our new coach. Met Tony & Penny at the Flying J near I-45 & I-20, had lunch together, went through the coach and traded cashier's check for Texas blue title! That's Tony (seller) with me in front of the coach. What a great guy! We enjoyed our visit with Tony and Penny and will be keeping up with them.

We are indebted to Wayne & Earlene for doing the initial inspection and test drive of the coach. They sent us a detailed report about it along with a photo album of pics they took during their inspection. Thanks guys! It was like we were there in person! And a big thanks to Herb & Barb for checking out several coaches in the Ft. Worth area for us and sending detailed reports and photos. It came down to a coach in Ft. Worth that they inspected/test drove and the one in Galveston. We could not have made this decision without the help from all of you. And another thanks goes to Steve for offering great advice and encouragement. What a great "family" we have in our Mutant world!

Heading home tomorrow. Working on a name for our Discovery and will post that as soon as we decide.

High fives to everyone ... forgot to mention Ken and Dennis and Diane and Barb and Sue and Dave and a host of others who have given encouragement, advice and support throughout our search. You're ALL amazing!

See you at CL in April!

Mutants - One and All
I have sent Mel and Kate a picture of Sparky along with his RV Mutant Mascot Welcome. Mel and Kate are currently working to name their Rainbow Rider and looking to adopt a mascot of their own.

When you wish them a Woot on their new to them rainbow rider - perhaps including your mascots picture will give them inspiration.

You out there Theodore? Rocky - Chocolate Moose?

Oh, dontcha know you'll be inundated with pics any day now! Want take some pics of the inside when Kate returns from the conference this evening. I'll get a pic of her in the kitchen ... which, as she says, "is a total misrepresentation!" (I'm Chief Cook in the family. Ha!)

R U an RV Mutant too?

Mel and Kate, allow me to introduce our loyal mascot, Rocky.
Here he is perched in his favorite spot on the front console.
He never says much and never complains.
We suspect he may be foraging for food overnight as he maintains his weight, but he is always back on his perch each morning.
I guess we take him for granite!
