Regions TBD.
AR and places around there could be continued by Tim and Di.
I can do some of the SW and Mid Atlantic. Maybe some New England too. But would need a cohort RVM.
Folks that winter in FL.... That summer in Midwest.... Mid South..... North Wet..... Etc
OTOH, getting just a few RVMs in one spot works! I can Open The Kimono around a campfire! (Mental picture not intended)
Bottom line: voting is okay, but doesn't put the train on the track. Ambassadors find a nifty spot, research, maybe make a deal (no pavillion not always a deal breaker to me), get some folks to say "Oh Yeah", and it happens. Twice a year. 5 times a year. What ev!
Hey STMs. I may have launched an underinflated balloon, but it's at least a stick in the mud to stare at. Trying to break the ice.
Mutated ponders appreciated.

You are such a sweetie.....
I will make as many as i can....
I get envious everytime i see photos of a miniC....

We stay at rest stops, truckstops, and a lot of military rv areas. But I will now be on alert for future suggestions,
And yes I do keep a notebook on that as well as bookmarks.
We managed fine in Rockport even without a pavilion or meeting place...... In spite of rainy and cold... How many mutants can you fit in an rv... More than you think......

We have 106 RVM's, but seem to only hear from a handfull....
Come on Mutants, speak up. Suggestions?
CHECK IN.... Let us know if you are with us....

As Wayne says to know us is to love us...... And i dooooooooooo.

But I did discover how saguaros are planted. They are "deposited" by The Thing, of the Fantastic Four. Check him out in pic 1 upper right.

Di if we're going to meet up with Possum and Dogpatch this fall do you think teaching some Kanadian speaking lessons would be a good idea at the April GC? Aye!
You de teacher, Aye!

I think those two can speak American until they provide a Kanukistani Language Seminar. (No offense intended, except to Tim).
But really folks....we all speak the same language. Our insults and snide remarks may differ a bit.
I grew up in MN, and when the tourist fishermen got thick, we went to Ontario for some REAL fishin!
FYI, they don't say y'all up there, eh?

I have never been to any sort of an organized rally type thing so I have no idea of what to expect and any idea of what is expected. I would willingly tag my name down as about Third Regional Illustrious Grand Ambassador and help in any way shape or form required.

Dennis in preparation for one of these organized rally type thingies you should attend as many buffet meals as you can between now and then. Once there, just follow my lead, another words don't get in front of me when it's time to eat!

Yes you do! You can talk and tick people off at the same time.



First, let me tell you that I carry jumper cables. Have no fear Larry.

Okay! I was kidding. Health is most important, but if you work harder you may get it to beep earlier. Just sayin' (humorously)

As to any GC, not everyone will be able to attend every gathering. The camaraderie is wonderful, and it is wonderful on this thread - thank you. As for August this year, well that is four months after we see ya'll and it may be to soon for ya'll (I know Y'all instead of Ya'll, but I like the later and you still understand the context.). For 2015, in August, we will be far into the Northwest U.S., so Dennis and Les can stop by somewhere in WA or OR and visit us. We try and beat the heat and we will not be headed home until the end of August. September is a better month for us to try and get to Bryce or surrounding area. Just plan. If we can make it we can, if not:

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

p.s., We live in a temperate climate (most of the time) so anyone that wants to come down this way and see the area we will be happy to be tour guides if we are here. A few have already been here and I hope they had fun and want to come back. As we travel and your dwelling, whether it be S&B or RV, is in our path, we'll stop and say hello whenever possible.

Wayne whatcha mean? I'm just as sweet as can be! Hey I was a Cub Scout and am still kind, courteous, considerate, thrifty, brave and clean!But I don't multi- task like I did in my younger years.

Whoa, whoa, Herb.
One thing or think at a time. Don't want you to stress scout!
Be good at the GC and you get an RVM demerit badge!
Oh.... Wait.... ?

Hey Tim you sound like me, I don't hike anywhere. For us one full day at the canyon was plenty. We stayed at Williams for three days spending one at the canyon.
