Hey all !!

We have had a great day so far, it started off with a lazy morning drinking coffee, and then escalated to visiting the RV/MH museum and spending 4 hours there, boy it sure brought back memories. Other than tents from my early childhood, my grandpa Ripley had a 19ft travel trailer that my dad installed a bathroom in, it is amazing the history of our magic carpets to say the least.

Jeff, that GMC is a beauty. There are a pair of them parked on a lot that I drive by occasionally; they have been parked in the same spots for at least 10 years, probably longer. It makes me sad to see them. I took this pic out my car window about a year ago...

Sorry you're feelin' poorly. I have been whining with a pinched nerve in my neck/shoulder for over a month now.

Hey Sarah, Howdy !!!

Ya it's sad to see them sit like that when there is a club of enthusiasts that buy them to restore and use as their rainbow riders, but I'll tell you this, I wouldn't trade mine for one .... lol ....

Cheers !!!

When Pat and I depart to explore pastures new and exciting we will not have the benefit of our large all in one computers and we won't miss them at all.
We have no real plans except to see this great country up close, meet interesting people who like us have no particular agendas and respect all pints of views. Apart from the usual 'must sees' we have no travel plans because after all The Journey is our Destination

Barry and Pat



Barry and Pat,

I had someone next to me in FL this past winter and spoke to the owner. He loved the thing, said it drove really nice, etc. I agree, I wouldn't trade but the fact that he's using it with his wife and I think they had a dog or two. Was in good shape, that was for sure. It was a green one, I know I posted a picture somewhere in iRV2 of it.

I grew up in the Phoenix area and visit a lot as family is there. I have gone in the summer even, but totally understand what everyone is saying. Fall is fine we aren't going anywhere lol.

We have not gone during the summer Mel, we went down a few weeks ago but not summer time.

This is where Hunter will be working - well further out in the middle of no where lol.

Your all welcome anytime so just let me know.
