R U an RV Mutant too?

Murder at Rope Light Gulch. Page 104....
Several RVMs were sitting around the morning campfire watching the dew evaporate from the big Gulch rock fire ring. The usual morning ponders, laughter and coffee sipping was just getting underway. A thin wisp of mesquite smoked rose gently above our heads and lingered briefly with the hickory vapor rising from the sizzeling bacon on a couple of Coleman stoves. Mutant mugs were still full of the requisite morning beverages. Strong coffee for the most part and the imported English tea the Cromwells always sip.

This was a Mutant morning ritual and we were all looking forward to the first crunchy bite of smokey, salted goodness when Barbarella rushed up with arms flailing. She was obviously distressed about something. "Has anyone seen Lena? She was just here. I turned my back for a Mutant minute and the little dickens was gone."

A hush came over all of the folks, and they all rose up to begin a search for their beloved RVM Mascot....
What could have drawn her away?
There was a dim light flickering down a long, narrow wash....

Bella brought us as far as Ft. Myers today, all of an hour and some, for her medical.

Of course the awning motor they ordered is wrong. And the malfunctioning toilet needs parts to be ordered and it's too late for next-day delivery. They tried to find the worrisome sound out below the steering wheel, and it seems possible they tried cornering to locate it.

In the process the fridge and freezer doors (tied shut) opened just enough to let something fall off the shelf and wedge them open. Melted ice cream, thawed cakes, and who knows what all else.

Sigh. But it's all good. We'll get to CL yet...you've been warned!

Cheers!

So, so sorry to hear about everything that didn't go your way. And let me take a guess, this all happened at a Camping World? It sounds familiar to me.

Don't know whether to be excited or embarrassed! Blushing.

Nice frames, btw. Good choice.
