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

If we throw you a rope after you get that blowtorch to loosen your icy bonds, can you hook it up to the RV? We could be the new, low cost way to travel. I'm sure the temps wouldn't mind manning the rope.

Happy Birthday Dwayne!
Mr Hawk could not talk, but his body language said he had respect for you but no fear of you. JMHO!
Have a Mutant Day!

Thanks! Nola and I take this as a complement to each if us.
BTW, it was my carefully discerning eye that picked her out of a crowd, but she chose me for reasons I will never know.
BTW, I discovered in reviewing my own travel blog that Nola and I went F/T on April 14, 2012, just 1 year prior to the founding of RVMdom.
We will have 3 years of F/T the day before the official start of festivities at CL!!!!

All good/great things come to an end but we look forward to being neighbors in the RGV. Next couple days we will be boon docking or even in a hotel as we have a tad bit of work done on the coach battery system then a few days with Wayne and Earlene in San Antonio followed by a week in New Braunfels. After that we either find something nice for another week or so otherwise we head on down the the RGV.

This has been an awesome week with friends. It is what makes life on the rainbow soooo darn cool!

Hey, you! Happy Birthday. Wishing you many more.

That hawk? What a thrill! I would suggest you might think about his timing, though. A totem or spirit animal might deliver a real pointed message!

All in the mutant spirit ... have a great day!

Mrs Great Glorious Grand Poobah picked SUGLY Grand Poobah knowing that he would know when he has a beautiful thing - an no other poobah's would want him.

It's amazing how quickly time can fly on the rainbow. As hard as it is to watch em roll, we know we will meet again. It's just that way with family, RVM or otherwise.

Safe travels to all who journey the rainbow; especially you Rockport RVMs.

Ditto, ditto, ditto. Such a great time with great people. Let's do this more often.

So, we walked away knowing there was no more bacon coming our way. On the way back we sauntered into their site again, but Steve had scoffed it all up. Sheesh!

A very good omen. May the year ahead, any many more be blessed with safety and good hunting.

Looking forward to a few more days with you and Sandee, just touring the SA area. Don't forget one day Thai, one day Korean.

I am still wondering why he lost his way back to the RV Park last night?

For some unknown reason, that needs explaining, Wayne decided to follow Diane & me towards the US Post Office. After a few blocks, Wayne slammed on his brakes, made a 'U' turn. He knows we don't use a GPS, as compared to his 2-3 GPSs.

So yes Wayne, do explain
