Food, fun, games, seminars, campfires, stories, food and more food.

Anyone seen Herb, has he gone missing?
I forgot to mention I talked to Herb yesterday. All is well and busy as, well you know. He's still with us and will be back soon. :thumbup::thumbup:

Take care.
Dave,

I've had 17 surgeries in the last 11 years and while I listen to what restrictions they place on my activities, I do so knowing I probably won't be 100% compliant. I feel that most are based on the worst case scenario and the docs not wanting to get sued if you overdo it and have a bad outcome.

Years ago after having cataract surgery where I insisted that they not give me any sedation of any kind, the "rules" prohibited me from driving myself the 3 short miles home. After arguing with the staff, I called a friend to come break me out of jail and got into her car. She drove me around the hospital and back to my parked car. She then followed me home and confirmed that I had been able to safely drive myself home.

Personally, I listen to my body and I rarely push to the point of exhaustion. If I feel like I'm ok to drive, I'll take a few short trips to test my skill and endurance before trying anything more taxing.

All that said, my advice to you is for you to allow 3 times the usual amount of time to make that trip. When you get tired or start to hurt, park that MoHo and take a nap. Oh yeah -- and skip the pain meds until you are parked in your spot in Yuma.

Glad you are doing better and I look forward to meeting you and Deb in April.

BTW - Larry -- you guys still planning to be our fishing partners for striper on Lake Ouachita. The guide we used last year is a great guy and really knows what he is doing!

Feel free to post here on 1.2 ideas until I get the website moving along.

In the meantime - someone tell me - where have all the mutants gone??? Where are all the new mutants??? Where are the mutants in waiting??? Lol.

Tell us your RV doesn't have and you don't miss - declare the Journey is the Destination and you can be RVM103!
John and Marie, this is your cue. Sign in will yuh???

He's a great guy but a tad timid, and he still hangs out with DW and I, but his wife Marie is first class.

He may be making the trip to the GC2 if it is held close enough to the border.


Adding to what Barb said above ^^^ The nicest thing about driving an RV is the proximity of great sleeping arrangements not too far from where you butt plunk to drive. Sleeping arrangements can always be at the next wide shoulder in the road ahead.

Hey Y'all !!!

Things are happnine at the zoo, getting ready for Christmas and all of the festivities. Packages shipped, pies made, cookies on the very near horizon.
But I wanted to respond to the grand potentates ideas about another grand curiosity bring in Idaho. I think either one of the parks would work, so if one is closer to our Canadian Contingent than that would be my suggestion, I've never been to Idaho so I guess its a great place to go, sign me up.

To those of you that are hurting , oooooommmmmsssss are headed your way.

Cheers !!!!!

It's 67 degrees - with a dew point a few degrees lower (read damp) with a bit of wind and headed to 80 today. Not too shabby but probably not dry enough for Annies sinus condition.

Wondering if anyone noticed Tim dangled an Idaho GC 2.0 idea yesterday. We - as a group haven't discussed this much and I promised to work on it in December. Well here I sit having done little to nothing toward the second Grande Curiosity except ponder.

I believe I have posted these two possible locations in Idaho before and have been to neither.

RVM10 - aka seldom seen or heard from - except when he mini-Cs with Barb, Sena, Dave and Nola... lol - or answers the phone when I call - or pops in unexpectedly - recommended:
Indian Springs - American Falls Idaho
Indian Springs Resort & RV | American Falls, Idaho

After I mentioned McCall RV Resort - McCall Idaho to him:
McCall RV Resort | Grapevine 7

We have several mutants doing a west coast tour in Summer 2015 - migratory mutants - Jeff and Marcia - Dave and Nola - Steve and Annie - possibly DaveDeb1 and others will likely be headed to Aridzona for the winter and a northern approach from Idaho could potentially work for them. And of course the intrepid Barb and Sena may be heading to Washimgton again for the winter. We have 2 Canadian mutants in particular that could make the trip distance wise provided timing is right. And did I mention Idaho is beautiful.

As far as dates go Mid August to Mid September seem to work but open to suggestions. We are planning to go to Idaho from Illinois - so places near or in between and earlier dates could work for us.

Rather than bog this thread down - I will do my best to get the laptop fired up this week and get the website updated and rolling so we can use it and the emailing list for ideas and communication / planning... Remember the website. Well the Temps have basically let it sit there and do nothing for months so I will be speaking to them about that.

I know some suggestions have been submitted for locations and need to refresh my brain there. More to come and I while we can't wait for GC 1.2 to arrive - the prospect of Grande Curiosity 2.0 is pretty exciting to me. Working toward that while full timing should be fun!

www.rvmutants.com for a refresher...

Enjoy the rainbow while ya can. You only get one shot at it.

The journey is the destination!
RVM2
Steve and Annie
my vote is for Sept. Too many Critter care jobs piled up already for August!

The Mc Calls one asks for the RV age on the reservation page... wondering if there is a rule somewhere I didn't see about that.
