Tim, it's not what Walmart expects as much as it is the circus that they created by allowing the GCs to include a lot of the technical work that used to go direct to WM. I have seen the pricing frenzy drop bids to the point of being completely unworkable, not to mention approved extras that are not paid, or finally paid after a year. Working harder won't fix this problem. Not playing in their sandbox any more will, at least for me.

So they got your 100%, threw you aside! now going after someone else's 110%. All is as planned by WM! lol

Bentonville is in a nice part of the state, as you travel toward the south east you start seeing the rolling hills, turning to flat land then far south the swamps and gator country. We also have clean, clear lakes! Ouchita lake is where you will be fishing with Steve, it's one of the top 5 clearest lakes in the nation, lots of diving. We host some at Lake Ouchita State Park, get lots of fishing in while there!

Suggestion for future GCs. KS Krude lives pretty central to all of us. Does he have room to host?

Most of us would love to be in your weather - it's 43 degrees and either raining or misty for the last three, four or five days. The big joke on the local news is "weatherman will you please get us some son shine?".

I wonder if north or mid FL has any openings? I am in need for a week in warm weather. May have an open schedule for work the next week or so and getting out of 'Dodge' would be a treat.

The grass is always greener Bob - but I cannot tell you the number of winter Texans who have told me they didn't drive all this way for this. Several not coming back. Now yes - they may have worse weather wherever they go next year cause you can't depend on it anywhere. After all, it weather.

But you also can't wet on my shoe and tell me it's sunshine and roses. We do look at the weather in DFW and see about a 10 degree improvement here. But a lot has gone into our planning for full time and that 10 degrees doesn't measure up. It is a good reminder that life has its ups and downs and seldom lives up to expectations, but who needs that really.

Personally - Don and I went to sushi lunch today - to Sam's and Walmart and a great day. Better if you happen to be a duck.

Will mountain oysters work? I bet there will be plenty available then as Spring is oyster season in Arkasas.

Don't knock em till you try em!
Actually not bad tasting once you get past what they are! I believe I'd choose them over some of that bait you eat!

R U an RV Mutant too?

Hey STMs!
I'm not going to try to mention all of the RVMness that I have enjoyed catching up on this evening. Will simply say thanks for the yuks, wisdom, sillyness and Mutations! Y'all are a hoot, and I needed that.
We have returned from a 2-day round trip Yuma to Prescott Valley for a routine appointment, and brefast with my sisters this morning. Road weary but pleased to be "home".
Looking so much forward to GC1.2 and the fun. Kimono1.2 is charged, powered up, and ready to break new rules on it's way to revealing something truly nifty. (Sounds of RVMs catching their breath in anticipation).
Remember, "Nothing" is Sacred!
