R U an RV Mutant too?

So we are not really roughing it, but we are doing without from when we lived in our house. But we do not miss any of the above and enjoy our nomadic lifestyle very much. We would have it no other way and do not ever plan on living in a house again.

So I feel like we are RV Mutants and would like to join this group.

Thanks!

Hello Don!
You have officially met 1/2 of the qualifications for becoming an RV Mutant! Just answer this question:
Is the Journey Your Destination?
If you can give us a yes or a yep or an uhuh or an OH YEAH, you will officially be RVM101, with all associated rights and privledges!
So answer-up. There is plenty of room on the Rainbow

I see that Dave - the Grand Poobah of the RVMdom had welcomed you and offered the final guidance in becoming a mutant. Good luck figuring out the answer...

Please tell us more... about 6 kids. We have plenty of mutants with kids - and some full time - but I'm not sure about this - but you may be first to be full time with kids. Crowded Camper was partly full time... Hmmm.

Tell us more.

We have said goodbye to Sue and Martin - and they are preparing to roll out of Rockport. Annie has wiped away her tears and now the work begins. But I may need a nap first.

Where in AR are you, we lived in Little Rock for 12 yrs, then moved to OK (but worked in Fort Smith) If any of you like to fish we have a boat on Lake Taneycomo and would be happy to take you out. Our friend owns a resort/RV park on Taneycomo so I might be able to get a discount for you guys!
Sold my wheel and slab roller, will be selling my kiln...trying to downsize before hubby retires in 3.5 yrs.

Hiya, rakuwoman! There are certainly fisherfolk amongst us, although I'm not one of 'em. Tim, aka huntnski, is a Hot Springs guy, and Di, aka diwizi, is from LR. Plenty of locals for you to mini-c* with. A bunch of us, you may already know, will be at Catherine's Landing in April, holding a midi-c*. You are, of course, invited!

Herb? Tell all again re: CL Redux.

Are you getting out of the clay business for good? Good memories, I hope! I'd take a look at that kiln myself (mostly for DH), but carryin' that sucker would be a bear, and shipping worse. Good luck in your sale. Would you share a pic or 2 of your favorite pieces?

Cheers!
Sue

Ya gotta come over to Arkansas and meet us in April. 1 day, 2 days, or 7 days it doesn't matter. Just allow us to attach a face to a name.

Welcome
Hehehe, you don't want me and karaoke...or set;ting up the bar (don't drink, but have fun watching those who do Will try to make it to Hot Springs. We were down there for the Film Festival (hubby was in "Stray Dog") we boondocked right next to the Arlington!

Sue and Martin are currently sett'n in the fuel station just down the road from Steve and Annie. Still! It has taken an unusually long time to fill up this time, but it's finally done. We might actually get properly on the road before noon.

Super breakfast with Steve and Annie this morning, and time for a chat. Gonna miss 'em, but looking forward to April.

Best wishes to all on the rainbow !

Sue

Dave,

Yes, the journey is our destination.

Wondering what is around that next bend in the road is a powerful force that keeps us moving in that direction.

Thanks!

Wow and our (40a & 40b) welcome to the rainbow is extended to 101, 101A, 101B , 101C, 101D, 101E, 101F and 101G.

That always wanting to see beyond the next curve in the road or elusive view beyond the horizon is what its all about.

Packin' up to head off to Cheesehead land and Milwaukee to meet up with the son, DIL and family, and others for the rest of the week. Hope the road's clear by tomorrow for at least the day.

Welcome Don and Misty and the young 'uns. May the Rainbow lay out before your family a wonderful path. Safe and happy.

BTW, my DW (Mary Ann) says "no way" on the full timing with 6 kids. Our daughter has 5 (ages 14 down to 4) and we took their family to Disneyworld from central Indiana. Loved the experience but it had a beginning and a scheduled end. Schedules, routines, job assignments, a true spirit of cooperation would be of paramount importance. Hope you can make it to a mutant gathering one of these days.

Travel easy. The exploration of this country will be a wonderful building block for your children. Take time to explain to them what they're looking at outside the windows.
