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!

OK a serious moment.

A while back somebody on IRV mentioned replacing the drop down door under his couch with a long wide drawer. I want to contact said poster but can't find the posting. I meant to bookmark it but forgot. Does anyone know the thread so I can find it?

Now back to our regularly scheduled insanity.

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?

The Levels Of Mutation are a newly pondered and open topic. So, STMs, tell us how you would define the Levels! Gimmee some ponders, y'all.
I see one right off:
1. Become an RVM.
2.

I truly do have some things I previously did not have and did not miss, but have pondered if I might miss them if Gwen did not have them. Answer: a definite maybe.
Howsomever, I still do not have and do not miss a W/D (by order of Nola).
I have a satelite dish, but no contoller or subscription.
I do have 2 docking lights on each side, but only use them if grilling late, which is rare. I too am docked early.
I have a Weber Q, and have added a $23 hibachi grill for using misquite charcoal.
I won't go into a full tally of don't have don't miss, but I did disable the piece of stupid door awning (another story). And I removed the piece of stupid ice maker (another story). And a put in $2,428 of LED lights, but got them for a bit over a hunert bucks at Quartzsite. And, yes, I have 4 strings of Ropus Lightus, in lovely white.
So come back to me on the Levels Of Mutation, RVMs!
And get yersefs to the GC at CL 1.2.
Eh?

Dave - I agree and the Ancient Scrolls of the RVMdom do indicate that Level is to be an RV Mutant. That said it is a recent ruling that allowed mutation to begin prior to having a Rainbow Rider. Technology has allowed the once more secretive world of Mutation to be available to those in search of a Rainbow Rider.

Hence - the second level of mutation is to have or have had a rider, or be in pursuit of said Rainbow machine, be it towed or diven. RVM 0 - and we all know who that is - was among the earliest to have mutated mascots and a short but busy rainbow riding season. A single nightly flee from the cold north. So full time is also a relatively new concept in the RVMdom.

Now it is true that our mutated cousins the Gypsies were and still are largely full time. But that's a story for another day. I have it on good authority that some of them do make an apperance in the Ancient Scrolls and in Murder at Ropelight Gulch.

So 1. Become an RVM
2. Acquire, previously had or be seeking a Rainbow Rider.

And I will throw this out there -
3. Host or participate in a Mini-C

Who has a 4th
