And that bay is waaaaay to clean and orderly and not full. Work on that.

We are having mutieful weather here also. Right now 65 degrees. Maybe see 73 today, 72 tomorrow, 77 Monday, 81 Tuesday then the cold front comes through and it goes down into the low 60's upper 50's, but still nice.

Earlene was of the family of fisher persons who threw the sheepheads back also. They are actually good eating. Just about everything out of the ocean is edible.

Sparky needs a Sparkles partner.

You go that right on affordability! All those gauges, lines, and fittings must cost a fortune. I just use the on-board compressor, and for checking I use the dual-headed truckers gauge. I check the air pressure before every departure, even if only stopping for one night. Another thing I can't afford is air pressure monitors. I did try the TST once, but could never keep air in the tires when they were installed, just on the TOAD.

Besides, why go through all the trouble of hooking all that stuff you use up to a compressor just to check air pressure. A dual headed gauge, coupled with the on-board compressor and dual headed chuck works simply well.

It is what it is, and then it is what we make of it.

Agree with Dave on this all around. I'm not FT and could pack more in that space for a weekend outing.

That is a very old picture. Don't have time to open the bay now and take another. Also - don't have time to pick everything up off ground that will fall out when I open the door. Give me a break guys. I know you know me but geesh - how stupid do you think I am.... don't answer that. Lol...

You at least need enough in each bay to make sure that nothing can move, and so you can experience the "oh, so that's where that darn thing was"!

Guarantee: nothing, but nothing, is gonna move in our bays! 😚

Oh, and I am inventorying each crate and bag before putting them in the Bella. Too many of those "oh that's where that darned thing is!" moments in my past!

Haha Dave... (Hi Deb) I suppose I need a Jeep and an iPhone too... lol. I do recall Quartzite having freezing Temps last winter and someone I know spending a couple weeks with the AZ windy side slides pulled in.

It's just a little weather and heck - it is already colder than I care for here in DFW. I can't wait to get to Rockport - rain and all!! Still better than here and relatove.

We have a little more to do and we're off and running. Full time has been a dream and it's fimally coming together at last.
I know you and Deb wish you could be with us for the
First Ever RV Mutant Pre-Thanksgiving Day Feast and Curiosity - and Simultaneous Flaggship1 Full Timing Kickoff Party

But like some other mutants ya had to high tail it to AridZonia. Nothing wrong with that. But some of us will be here...

Rockport Texas
FERVMPTDF&C&SFFTKP
Roster
Wayne M
Diwizi
MartySq
Suspinz
Flaggship1(FT Oh Yeah)
Sky_Boss
Okmunky
TEFFY (Maybe)

And we will miss Jim and Ginny who had to cancel their reservation at the last minute.
And Herb and Barb who have a down family member. And Tim and Mary with a coach in the hospital. And all mutants everywhere who could not make it...

Journey on my wayward mutants!
