OMG. Well, we wanna be Sue and Martin, too ... no, wait ... I guess we both have to be Sue. Doesn't matter. I doubt we'll ever grow up.

Sue, you're the ultimate Mutant. Methinks you're the poster girl for the world of RVMs.

If we reserve our site (23?) for the 15th, we will likely travel from Houston to Hot Springs on that day, arriving around 4-5 p.m. Is the opening ceremony scheduled at night? Since this is our first Curiosity I don't want to miss anything. When are y'all planning to arrive? Anyone getting there a day or more early?
Stay tuned, we may have a convoy again this year. No one is planning it yet, but you never know. We are departing on the 13th and arriving on the 14th.

Now Sarah, you have to STOP and realize that you are (will be) in retirement mode. What's the hurry? Slow down and smell the flowers.

And I can still list things I don't have and don't miss. And bunch of them are in a store room in Plano. Lol. Guess I can't really claim full level 3 Mutation if I have things that I don't carry with me. Even if it's storage. Still. I don't miss any of it.

As for things Bonita doesn't have and I don't miss - I don't have docking lights and always arrive before dark and depart after sunrise. Don't miss them.

While I don't miss having my generator on a slide out tray - I will pay for it when and if it has to be pulled for any reason... knock on wood.

I still don't have Tims (I believe) outside kitchen. Since he hasn't had us over for dinner and shown me what I'm missing - I don't miss not having one. Do like having my grill and smoker with us.

That's a start - Dave initially had 37 items listed as I recall. Entry fee to this illustrious group is one thing not missed. Hardly seems fair does it. I guess that's OK since Dave and Nola gave up Fred and now have most of the 37 things they didn't have before and probably a few more.

OK well anyone want to add to there entry fee. Fess up. What else don't you have and don't miss?

I believe my entry application included the phrase indicating that the outside kitchen was one thing I didn't have and did not miss.

Tim, do you & Mary have one o them? 'Fess up! 😉

Thanks for sharing, Sue!! (I thought at first that was a satellite-finder. )

Actually, there is a satellite in there, near the bottom. Surprised me!

Hey, you can both be Sue if you want to ,,, watch out world! Three of us? EEEK! Be forewarned, though, this Sue may be the ultimate mutant (really?!) but feels as dull as ditchwater in person.

We don't have a Dometic or Norcold frig and don't miss that. We do have a very nice residential frig. Keeps Kate's pinot grigio and my beer cold. :-)

We don't have a bedroom slide and so far, don't need one. (We'll talk about this next year, when we're on the road.)

We don't have an outside kitchen. But Tim does. We'll just bring steaks over, Tim ....

We don't have a satellite dish. Have the old batwing, but it pulls in stations just fine so far. If we're out of range, we can always read, play cards, hike, watch a movie or whatever.

We don't have heated holding tanks (darn), so can't boondock somewhere cold. But oh, well. Cold weather is over-rated.

And finally, we don't have a mortgage on our coach. Don't need one. Don't want one.

Hey, ChocoMoose is soon to meet up with Dad, or Grandad, or whoever he turns out to be. Canadian friends are traveling w/ Moose & Beaver.

Pix when the grand reunion occurs.

We do, best thing since sliced bread. It has done wonders for Mary's health, as I'm driving and needing a snack she has got pretty good at making a sandwich while keeping up. Now I must confess, I do slow down some, but her jogging and cooking has really come a long way! The orange barrels can be tricky!

Actually we didn't think we would use it that much, but now that we have it, it's really handy to have a frige, and sink outside and of course a grill. Saves a lot of trips in and out while cooking, and although the screen is kind of small, the outside TV keeps you in the game or race while outside.

Woot. Sparky has been missing his kin folk here in the RGV. No squirrels climbing palm trees around here. Back in DFW his kin were everywhere. Here it's woodpeckers and rabbits. Does anyone have a Mutant rabbit or woodpecker mascot???

Mel, I thank you for that! But I only had a thought and posted it. Steve started this crazy, wonderful thread.
I, however, did create the Opening of the Kimono. Wish we could have 200+ RVMs in kimonos one day!
