Toyduck - the best photographer I know still uses film and has done some great stuff with a pin hole camera. He uses an old Leica range finder too. He has an old Mamiya 7 too but doesn't like to lug it around. He eeks out a living in Portland Or at a print shop - drum rolling for others - and printing. He says he gets enough of the digital world at work, is looking forward to retirement and getting away from it altogether. Of course he is a S&B man so darkroom is his favorite place to be. He has watched the progression, fought for jobs against recent college grads in the highly competitive Portland market for years. But what a hobby it is! Silver halide to digital. Another long strange trip.

3 weeks of garage sales and LOTS of stuff that we won't miss and won't want.

I won't miss the construction of the Condos behind my S&B that will block up my view...I will trade that for a view that never gets boring because I have the ability change it.

Good start?
Welcome Sky_Boss!
3 weeks of garage sales can mutate you pretty good.

I found a picker, we agreed on a price for each item, tallied it up, he wrote me a check, hauled it away same day!

Try local auction houses. Some have pickers connected to them. My realtor told me about the one I used.

It could save you from too much mutation!

We have a 34' fiver with 4 slides. We stay south for 5 months. Do we need this big a rig? When we started looking for a new rig a few years ago I factored in what the cost of a divorce could be. Cost of rig is way less. So, as RVM10 I have to factor in all the things not needed to really be able to say "I needed that." Of course, DW can stay in one end while I practice the (new) banjo on the other end. Can a guy have to many banjo's? I think not. Latest one is a carbon fiber Gold Tone. I figure it should be tough enough to withstand the rigors of travel and being flung against a wall when frustrated with "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", or anything in "D" tuning.

Years ago I wanted a darkroom of my own, but never had the room and $$ at the same time.. Unfortunately, like the 'old' days, modern digital equipment of a professional nature is highly expensive. Last week a friend showed me his new digital camera, when he told me the price ($3500) I think my eyes glazed over...don't remember much after that.

It did take some great photos though...

Of course, I don't want or need it now of course...

Most digital cameras available today are capable of taking great pix. Having an eye to capture the usual in an unusual and interesting way brings a bit of joy to everyone. Enjoy your surroundings and share the things you see, your perception is unique and the moment will only be memorable and shared if you do it.

RVM15 here, is it just me or is everyone overly obsessed with sewer hoses. There are hundreds of post on this and other sites debating the Merritt's of different sewer hoses. Some people get quite snippy about ther preferences on something that just drains the #*@ out of your RV. My cheap brown Camco hose that I put the ends on myself seems to work just fine. Even managed to step onit a couple of time, still works. What am I missing.

Selah - there is a lot of obsessing over many things - and the waste disposal system is sure one of them. It sure is nice to have RVMs to talk music, philosophy, arts, science, and the RVM way with. Including the stinky slinky obsession. However - RVMs probably don't have much to say on the matter - we have em - need em - and would sure as heck miss em - no matter kind we have. The observation is a good one though - and almost as popular as why do my batteries go dead when I leave the furnace running all night without hookups??

In concert with that obsession, is the topic of "What kind of toilet paper to use". Not many would say "Don't have it and don't need it", but not sure it's worth becoming obsessed about it. We always just grab what's on the shelf at the S&B when we head out. One ply? Quick dissolving? We say "don't have it and don't need it". Just one more thing on that ever growing list.......

You don't even have to think about TP. All you have to do is buy the cheapest stuff at Walmart. Its one ply and cheap!

Are you still a RVM if you like to watch Duck Dynasty so that means you have to go out and get a satellite hook-up?

I get a kick out of those that never put TP down the toidy (EEEEK).

So, it's unanimous, me thinks, that RVMs have, need, and use a slinky.

Other ones that make me chuckle:
Do you drink water from your fresh water tank?
Dash cams.
Fuel prices.
What is the best RV?

And my all time favorite:
We bought our first RV and had a great weekend. We are now at the dump station. What do we do?
