Well done Wayne... especially enjoyed the brief tour of the residential area... lol. All kidding aside - it was a great day for a drive and you chose a great route!
Okay! The guided tour through the residential area needs explaining. Earlene takes full responsibility for the first negotiated turn into the area.

Then, just about 50 yards to the left the road was a circle that was also converted into a right hand turn. I truthfully was going to swing around in the circle and go out the way we came in. Howeer, a voice in the back, Barb, said, "You can turn around!" Bob looked at me and said, "She shouldn't have said that." so I made the right hand turn. I wasn't about to follow another female back seat driver. By the way, Earlene really did as fine a job in the back seat as she does in the passenger seat.

Bob's subtle hand signals were fine.

Yeah this is the real north that we try to leave behind each winter and head south, but nay ... this year the weather pattern did not honor it's usual schedule.

In other words, we are FROZEN TO THE GROUND ... halp, halp, HALP.
PLAN AhEAD!

Wayne why does it seem that every time you drive something needs explaining? Perhaps Earlene should take the wheel?

I believe Dave refers to a syndrome whereby the cranium and posterior by another name become inverted.

This is what can happen if you go out for Thai with traveldogs (Cindy) and come home with extra rice.
Next time will include FISH!!!!

I am always thankful that I don't live in Buffalo, land of lake effect snow. They are currently pushing 6 FEET of snow and it is still coming down! Here we have a mere foot or so, but much deeper where the wind blows it. Looks like we snuck back north between storms.

Hi Tina!
By golly you do live way Nort! In latitude you are not as far Nort as Duluth.
Grew up in MN. Made me tough and resourceful. I got over it.

I was not suggesting any sanity among us. We are RVMs, after all.
Let's just say that some synapses come and some go and some may even re-fire but a bit random. The Mutantity and surprises and .... Where was I going with this?
Finish my thought, Herb

Mutants were active today... going in several directions.

Hopefully pics are forthcoming. Larry and I saw some harbor life. And, tonight 13 mutants were spotted in Fulton at Charlotte Plummer's for dinner. The restaurant is directly in front of the harbor.

As for this group of RVMs.... words fail me.

Getting a little taste of the good life here at deer camp. I normally stay in a very small camper with no running water and only portable heater. One of the guys here leaves a nice 5er here and called wanting me to house sit it while he's gone with the weather dropping in the teens. He said he knew I would know how to keep it from freezing and handle any problems. Boy are the hot showers nice, and the heat too. Just hope he gets back before the tanks need emptying! Since we boondock here the full tanks can be an issue, that's when I'll fade into the woods. lol
