Welcome to the world of mutants, RVM48 may your destinations always be pleasant.

Dogpatch, DW and I are planning a trip over to your side of the province before winter if all goes well so we may yet connect.

On our recent trip the front left HWH jack hydraulic hose broke and I will now learn how to repair it, so the destination continues.

You guys are too hard to keep up with. Gotta love all the positive chatter.

Suespinz - In the cool light of morning sun - how does the slide situation look? Will it go back in without issue?

Well fellow mutants - we have the car loaded and are taking the nonperishable items up for the load in. Trying to be ready to roll as early as possible next Saturday. Life on the rainbow is good for now. The journey is our destination!

20 if you need all appendages.

20 is all I need to count my retirement fund!

Last year I asked my Garmin GPS to direct us to Lake Wobegon, MN. I wanted to do some kayaking out on the lake. GPS is still "recalculating".

By the way is the lake at high water mark due to all the rain? Maybe we should give up on it and motor on over to St Olaf, MN. I'll enter that in the old Garmin.

I only put about 8,500 miles per year on my rig and I summer and winter at opposite corners of the US. Driving 10k miles in one trip sounds like a lot of driving -- and fuel. But each mutant is wise in her/his own destinations.

Enjoy!
I had a dream last night (as mutants often do). And in it I told someone that the beauty part in our weather, eh, is that it might only be nice out for fifteen minutes at a time, so you must live here to catch a glimpse of it. That beautiful day will come the day after you leave. Ya might stick around that extra week - especially if you're heading thru eastern Oregon cos if you're at the coast ya can't count on anything being good, weather wise, except for a few minutes every now and then...

Jack

Here it is: http://lakewobegontrail.com/

A Prairie Home Companion lives on! Dont forget their pseudo sponsors, including The Coffee Institute. And when you see them perform, most of them look so very...Lutheran.

And few know that there truly is a St Olaf MN, a township near where my parents lived and where I used to go fishing. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._O...nty,_Minnesota

So there ya go son of a gun doggone it den dare too!

JudyH -- yes, too much fun, and lots of great folks. We are looking forward to seeing some of them & more mutants too at Myrtle Beach next September. I think it starts the 18th & runs a week. Official announcement from the Wagonmaster very soon.

I do know about opening doors > & had been catching things from this one all day. Again, I had snuck a hand in ahead, but missed. These beautiful porcelain tiles are just absolutely unforgiving. I've made "fences" to safeguard things before, but haven't been in this rig long enough to iron out all the wrinkles. Next project!!!

Steve -- No, in the bright light of morning sun, the slide still won't go out w/o destroying the trim. And there are 2 rallies between now & our Oct. appointment in Elkhart. A cardboard email, assertive but not aggressive, has been sent to our Thor person, so tomorrow will be interesting as phone conversations go back & forth.

Cheers, one & all!

RVM wannabe!

I am a wannabe RVM. What I don't have and don't need (among many other things) is insulation--because I don't want to go anywhere the temp drops below 50. What I do require is a comfortable hammock and a good book.
I also want very much to be a RVM!

Hubby is still renovating the RV he bought us-- the goal is to keep the inside as open as possible. Many compromises, mostly me saying yes to what he is determined to do anyway.

Someday when it is just me, I'm going to turn it into MY personal kind of space and bug the grandkids by showing up at odd times.
