JMHO...

And Barb - we all know you don't have a contentious bone in your body.

As the somewhat recently crowned the MML (Mutant Master of Lucidity), X2 on what you said.

Our family enjoyed Disney World so much in September. Fort Wilderness of course. Worst experience ever was Disney World during Christmas break back in the early 80's. Yellowstone in late May was great.

Accommodating mutants with school agers is FINE with us though.

An alternative is a get together in the area we had planned the Pacific Northwet gathering in. About 100 miles south of Les and within reach of any planning to be in the area in the mid summer time. Earlene & Wayne, Annie and Steve, Barb et al, and a couple of others who will not come to mind at the moment.

Now for a more pressing matter. Di think in shades; of grey. get the old coot all wound up and that should get that beeping beeper beeping. It all hinges around the presentation.

In all seriousness take care to make sure everything is as it should be as those contraptions do go about doing their business really well.

R U an RV Mutant too?

IMHO, the discussion around future GCs makes the positions of Regional Illustrious Grand Ambassador(s) look like a partial fix.
If 1 or more RVMs (we have 106 now) would take the RIGA position in each region, the R&D effort around possible GC locations could shape up quite nicely!
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.

Saguaro National Park West.
The saguaros are amazing, like passing thru an art museum of Mutating forms.
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.

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.

Or an obscene gesture involving a single digit.

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!
