The want to is strong, the can do, just might not be.


Yes, those of us who do not fulltime we are at a distinct disadvantage for location.... And such,
but i hope we can find a time which is best for as many as we can....
Wouldnt that be a rainbow delight.... All of the flavors at BR in one great big bowl....

The maritimes? Really. For a GC?

Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!
Maritimes - Maybe. Maybe not. - Maybe Steve and Mary and Annie and I - it's a mini... or maybe east coasters could make it. Or something in New England on the way in or out of the Maritimes. Or maybe SC as Larry suggested as we head south to Florida. Who knows.

What I do know is that those who are retired and those who are full time have it easier to journey than those who still trade labor for dollars. That's why I don't think voting is any fairer than just throwing a dart.
But even those who are retired and or full time - have their preferences and druthers. And it is next to impossible to please everyone so....

Nothing wrong with that at all.
As The Grand Poobah mentioned a while back - the easiest thing is to call a mini or midi wherever you journey, whenever you journey... if others can be there they will - and that of course would include the Poobah and the Potantate. We have colloborated on this and are pretty much lock step. We want to meet all the mutants - wherever and whenever we can.

Steve if some are planning on a trip, a GC, a mini, a caravan are what ever to the Maritines we would like to be in on that planning. We want to go even if it's not a big gathering.

A moving Caravan GC would certanly be mutant don't you think. Larry even showed interest to the NE GC when I mentioned it.

I do... I do indeed. That's why I'm going to be reaching out to you - Dave - Jeff - and anyone else in Utah - to work toward at least 1 move together following Bryce. Remember the Gypsy Mutants.... it's still in our DNA... a little caravanin' could be fun.

I am still working on my dates for Bryce - as in trying to get a rate - for 7/27 -8/27 month long... just waiting to hear from the man. What man?

Quick question, your smoker, is it electric, gas or charcoal/wood. I remember it had a remote something but don't remember all. We were looking at a electric one. Plug in set temp walk away.

Is there a weight limit on those horses. I couldn't take the donkey ride into the canyon. Hmmm! Might be telling me something.

It would have been nice to put faces to the names of my fellow Mutants and enjoy endless guffaws at the many strange antics that no doubt will transpire.

Reluctantly, we will have to live vicariously through your adventures yet again.

Thank you for your considerations regarding timelines in our favour.

Regards,

The Dogpatches
Les, this year it is a west coast trip, but August is my son's retirement ceremony in CA so we'll miss the great gathering. However, we plan on tripping on up to the border with Canada. Might be a mini-c somewhere along that way. No definite plans, but if we get close, who knows what can happen.

We stay on their property most of the time and boondock while traveling. Campgrounds don't work well with yappy Lily who barks at every noise and Sena who knows how to open RV screen doors so she can steal goodies.
That sounds like a great philosophy. We'll follow that same plan with regard to being where it's warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, but in December, we want to be in the Hill Country so we can have Christmas with our sweet Gwen. You can understand why ....
