To save some $ Judy you might compare prices online. Camping World tends to be higher priced, but not always when you add in shipping costs, but can often save the sales tax. I usually find the best deals on Amazon, but my daughter gave me a prime membership so I don't pay shipping on most things.

Also, it's a little harder to impulse shop on line, not a lot, but a little. Just be careful not to shop when you are hungry for adventure.

Uh Tim, you may need to check your GPS. THIS Rockport has a much larger population. Now that's Rockport, TX you want to program into it.

Come on down! The rain has stopped and all the locals are happy to see us Snowbirds. By Christmas they'll be wishing we would hurry up and leave. Of course they want us to leave our $ when we go.

Ok, so Rockport, Ar is hoppin tonight, the night before opening day of deer season!

Rockport, Ar is the small community at exit 98 on I-30, the one you take going to CL if coming in from TX! The sign says Malvern but the small area right at the interstate is Rockport! This afternoon was a constant line of pickups, campers, 4wheelers, ATVs and more headed deep into the south AR woods. 300,000 hunters in woods tomorrow AM!

So let the other 299,999 have em this year and join us in the other Rockport. If last year is any indication, you won't have any wild game left by April anyway.

I sure hope you are wearing one of those bright orange vests and an orange cap, Tim. Arkansas isn't all that big. With that many hunters all rev'd up to shoot something, I don't want it to be you!

Be careful out there!

Would love to but The Discovery is in hospital for yet a undetermined length of time.

That much camo in South TX is a forest fire waiting for Yogi, Boo Boo and El KaBong.

Talk to Martin! He's overseeing my packing, and groaning, and fussing ... and doing the best he can with all my stuff. If all my stuff is packed on one side and all his on the other, Bella will fall over on one side. Guess which side! 😜

So, all is good on the Rainbow, and RVMs are....um....Improvising....Adapting and....Mutating. AIM. Hmmmm
Alert the temps!
New thingy for the RVM Lexicon: AIM.

Steve and Annie.....the term is "minimalism". But there is no quiz.
"AIM" for the Rainbow!

Sue and Martin, why must you pick sides? Sue, give Martin a bay or two on the port side? No rolling over!

So there are different types and shapes. I purchased one from a Snap On Truck...spent too much like $125.00 it inflates and has a gauge. The part I wanted was the staight end and the tighter angle to get the outer dual valve stem on the rear duals.

I would look at a large auto parts store like Napa or a large truck stop.
