Yes, most of the parts are there but it would cost beau coup of bucks to restore her. Also, the frame is bent from a heavy shunt to the rear. All moot since the owner won't sell it to me!

woot woot

Just finalized a reservation at Bonita Vista RV Resort in Apache Junction, AZ for Jan, Feb, and March of 2016. Good location close to Superstition Mtns and metropolitan Phoenix. Rates are good (for Phoenix area), nice facilities and activities, full hook-up but no cable or hard-wired wifi (will scour for that when we get there), and we're able to come and go with the MH as we please.

We have A T & T iPhone hot spot and also A T & T hot spot. Should be able to survive if we don't stream or Skype. Will find a Starbucks for skypeing.

Also have a lead for covered and electrified storage about 2 miles from Bonita Vista for Oct, Nov, Dec. Waiting for rates to be revealed by e-mail.

All of this on a gloomy and chilly (60*) day in our neck of the woods. Sorry to those covered with that white stuff up north.


Arizona gathering of mutants next winter??????


AND I finalized plans for a min-C. Yeah

The girls are always still in bed at least for 3 or so more hours than me.
Les... you sound like Bob... he turns into a pumpkin at 10:00 PM and wakes up at 5:30 every day... I can nearly set a clock by him!
Me... well, I'm go to bed when I'm ready person... sometimes 11:30, sometimes 1:30... if I'm into a good book it might be 3 before I can put it down... but then I sleep until 9:30 or 11:30 most mornings...I usually am awakened by Bob's leaving to go make retirement funds... and am awake an hour or so then, but I don't get out of bed cause I know I can have peace and quiet when he leaves...if the dog allows it...and get back to sleep..

As I recall a tornado hit a nearby town with tragic results. Mother nature at her least favorable.

And then as quickly as the storm had arrived, the wind and rain vanished. Ropelight Gulch was again eerily quite. Our thoughts quickly turned from the mystery of mother nature to the more pressing matter of who killed....

Murder at Ropelight Gulch

Now... the way I heard the story... the winds calmed and the sun returned when Honey blew in....

Yes the memories of RGV area will always remind me of the Cowboy Cadillac I got down here. Yee Haw. Enjoy your day.
Funny you should mention kites. Have a small parafoil and kite onboard and picked up this 6' wingspan today... good for 5 to 20 mph winds. Hello Bryce Canyon - have kites will travel.
