For suspinz

Hope your slide troubles are soon a distant memory, and remember -

Somewhere over the rainbow, you know the words, la la la - carry on! (rainbows seem to be a recurring theme (meme?) among us mutants!

And the Royal Gorge Railroad was superb!

Oh Oh Oh !!!!!!

I wanna go there !!!!! .... the DW just saw and said she would have to close her eyes... How can you close your eyes to such magnificent beauty ? ya gotta love those narrow roads on the top of a ridge, I mean whats the absolute worse that could happen, you are still solid on four good tires.
Dave I think we will have to get our DW's together with a box of wine and then let them self-medicate while we drive the narrow and steep spots.

Cheers !!!!

My Mom always taught me to keep on the straight and narrow.
Somehow the crooked and narrow are much better.

BTW, it was awesome....and PAVED!!! Built in 1909 by the tenants of the Territorial Prison at the foot of the hill. Paved in 1932.

Tell us and it will be written cnkinthebus will be RVM50. Good luck.

2 things we don't have and can comfortably do with out is 1)high capacity ice maker and 2)monthly payments. Hope one of those two will help us qualify.

I could do that road with my eyes closed.


And they definitely would be.

I thank you. However....

The Skyline Drive was easier than flying. Easier than stringing rope lights. Easier than cooking bacon.

Most Wrangler freaks like me love this stuff. I think having pavement was really cheating!

Thank you for graciously accepting us into the RVMdom world. Bacon is a staple around the homestead as well as on our travels. Hopping to try the 'full-timer' thing out in the near future, just need to find a new owner for the S-n-B. Starting our 1st year as 'empty-nesters'. Another year or so and we will be able to move about this beautiful country of ours.
Our travel mascot is an 85lb golden.
Safe travels all, a new journey starts in the morning.

Here are our mascots! A bit crowded when all are on board. Fortuately, only the little one gets to sleep in the bed. Max, the golden and Pepper, the poodle/bichon. Doggie love.

Welcome friend! This crowd is without description, without topic, and supposedly without rope lights. However I have my suspicions that some really do have rope lights but are claiming they are for medical purposes only.

I see by your screen name that you are driving a bus. Me too. Your avatar pic must be your bus, but sort of difficult to tell if it has a really tall antenna on the rear or is that a cell phone tower?

Again, welcome ... #50

By the way, there are some new members that I did not get a chance to shout out a welcome to. My only excuse is that I took a nap and woke up at #50. Things move fast around here.

We must get together sometime in a gathering of the curious. Can't call it a rally ... that is too formal. RVM2 is feverishly working on a newsletter so we can all find out where we are. I'm looking forward to finding where I am, for sure. Maybe the newsletter will be the catalyst for a collision of locations where we can actually rub elbows.

Ah ... nap time again ...

Welcome #50! You will fit well with our band of twisted mutants! BTW we do have some closet ropies among us but we still bond with one and all. Welcome Home.
