Perhaps a blow torch can thaw your connection to the ground and get you rolling? Sounds like it's way past time for you to head south! It's been cooler than usual in Rockport but thankfully the sunshine has returned.

And I am following the continuing Saga with deep interest and a bit of guilt.....
Nice that you have listed the attendees in numerical RVM sequence, as those of us with OCD may have tried to have them in order of height, age, and hat size.
We have basically 70/45 hi/lo here in BCC, with slight improvement as we migrate to Tucson then Yuma in the next 11 days.
When our friends and kin in MN tell us (and heartily complain right-off) how nasty it is, I politely respond "no comment"....but they KNOW where we are, SO....
I used to hunt deer in MN. We did not have taj mahal deer stands with heat et al. But I had electric socks and gloves, and hand warmers over my kidneys, and still froze my butt off.
Please keep up the fine reporting, and the future posting of RVM lexicon and more info on CL (while I assemble my Kimono) is much appreciated!

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.

And if you don't like those temperatures in Texas, just wait 5 minutes.

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.
