Yo Mutants!

Glad to see a little hail hasn't dampened spirits too much. Good to see many have arrived home safely or at next port of call from the gathering.

Update on our end, had the Beaver in to get the right front leveling Jack replaced. All went fine till they ran the leveling system, came out and found a pool of hydraulic fluid under the back of the coach. Apparently some mice like nibbling on the plastic coating on the lines and we blew two hydraulic hoses. AND of course, they have to remove the muffler to get at where they run AND the muffler isn't going to make it as it's rusted and will need to be replaced.
Thankfully MasterCard loves me cause I'm going to have to chuck a few $$$$ on er'!

Wow, Les...what a bummer. Too bad one of those potential buyers didn't bite before you had to make those repairs.

Tim, it was such a pleasure to meet you and Mary, and all the Mutants. Thanks again for all your work to make the GC so much fun. We are still talking about your fried catfish!

Les if your trying to cheer us up it didn't work!

At least change the story to A Bear or something Clawed and Chewed the hydraulic line on the Beaver! Your the only one that can tell it like that and it be believable!

Sorry for your pain!

Progressive. I have Progressive also. First 5 years is full replacement value, then it goes by depreciation.

So where are you? Thought you were home. It's not a small enough world that the Airstream owner lives on your block.
My correct saying is, "It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it." We made what we could you of it and the rest will just fall i place.

We are at the KOA North Houston in Montgomery, TX. If you can say this place is big, then you better say it it HUGE. Very nice RV park with many "event" rooms that can accommodate any group.

Well, I hope they can do the paintless, but the rails along the roof would have to be done, most likely, with the headliner pulled out to push the the pock marks out. Hey, whatever they do to fix it is going to have to be fine. The hood will most likely be replaced. There already is a Carfax from the Rockport incident so one more isn't going to hurt that much.

Wayne - can ya imagine the BodFax report they could produce on you and I... we've both been banged up and bondoed, bailing wired and screwed together quite a bit and yet here we are - full fledged mutants thumbing our noses at whatever life throws our way. Ain't nothin' but a thang brother. This too shall pass.

When I think of all the good times we had at 1.2 - it makes the bite a little better. The RGV weather this winter was actually worse because it was so persistent. The good times were hard pressed to offset the yuck factor. Sure no damage but we had more fun at GC1.2 in a week than we did in the valley in 3.5 months. And that's a fact Jack!

That sounds good to me. I'm hoping she stays in safer places. War is not where she needs to be. Poland sounds like a great adventure.

Was she at Ft Riley, KS? I worked in the dental clinics there back in the 1970s.
