Good news that no one suffered any personal injuries. Sorry to see so much shattered plastic and dents caused by the hail.

May you all have a speedy recovery of RVs, toads and minds. It is unlucky when that which can precede a rainbow can be so...not fun.

I was sure Colleen had remained back at CL - but this has me wondering if she slipped out to do some shopping...

Thanks Don! The sun has been bright and warming all day which is good medicine for all our ails and has helped expedite those essential repairs that can't wait. I don't believe I've ever seen so many roof walkers in one place.

We miss having you and Sandee here, but I can imagine now you're glad you didn't join us. But as with all things, mutants make the best of it. There's a whole bunch of cooperative repairing going on.

Having replaced my covers because of old age, I do know how to do it, I wish I could help lend a hand and add to the amount of tools.

P.S. Hope all the yurts made it OK!
Ken I was huddled in the corner like a baby! Worst hail storm I've been in, lived here all my life!

Yurts were protected by the trees!

I took some pictures of various mutants working on the tops of their and others rainbow riders today. I will try to get a few of them posted later. RV Mutants are ready to roll, be it on down the road - or the assistance of others. There is most certainly a mutant gene of the genus RV... the "spirit of the mutant*"

* possible descendent or member of the family Wanderer - MutAnt

At this very moment - a hearty group of GC @ CL1.2 Redux attendees are about to sit down to some great food at Cajun Boilers in Hot Springs. I say hearty, because 1, they are full of heart and other great stuff... but they also have more energy than I do.

Truth is at this moment I am watching blue sky sitting at the picnic table. I've almost caught my breath, and I wasn't even on top of a coach today or yesterday.

What a ST group of Mutants!

Y'all need to look closely at your roof because. Hail can cause problems down the road on rubber roofs. The hit can mess up the glue under the roof.

Long day with aches & pains, and wasn't able to help anyone else today. Today's prize winners were Ed along with the Wayne & Dave team. Every time I looked around from my RV roof, I would see Ed & Dave on top of another rooftop [Wayne was doing a good job of supervising Dave [JEN] from the ground!]. Actually, I'm sure HIS ROUNDNESS would have been up with Dave, helping him, if it wasn't for the ladder & rooftop weight requirements. Plus, Dave doesn't trust Wayne with the DeWalt's drill/screwdriver TORQUE.......
.
Others did help, but the above 3 was everywhere. They must have some Arkie blood in them!!!!!

Sure wish Mel & Kate would check in....

Dwayne, you have been missed from the beginning, but even more so, in the past 2 days.

Jeff, thanks for telling us that you know how to do the replacements. So, get your butt on a plane & get on down here!!!!!!!!!!!!!
