Got it yesterday! A gift from dear son!
It's a Crazy Great GPS and HD dash cam all in one. Also warns if you are following too close, wandering tween the lines, etc

Suddenly, there was a hail storm with stones the size of beef fillets, and one the size of Sena, and "CRASH" one that looked like Curious George.
And just in the nick of time, Ed simply.....

Not that I would ever trade Smarty off. She's ours for life. Just curious. Talk about cherry -- my 2012 has only 13,500 miles on the odometer. Another 20K on the tires, but those don't count against us. And her tiny little shoes are cheap to replace.

We kept the base plate.... They were not interested in it.
Larry was goona take it off, since he put it on, but they ended up taking it off for us...
Which was what we wanted, since we will be putting it on AuJeep....
Or lol, he will be... I can wipe his brow and hand him tools....


And Mel, when we drive like that, to wherever, we usually overnight in a parking lot or truck stop.. No hooking up or unhooking..
And maybe it is longer than 2 days... I am not good with numbers,






Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

The back is improving... the rain has stopped and the wind calmed down.

We head for Sioux Falls tomorrow. Gonna stay at Yogis for week - while we get an idea on how long the car will be in the shop. The shop says they have room for and do occasionally do work on RVs. So we shall see what they say about Bonita. We'll play it by ear.

Barb, when I sold my 2007 Saturn I listed it in the iRV2 classified and it sold the next day. Having the tow package on the car can help someone with an RV, if even for a temporary time while until they decide on a different or newer vehicle. As far as the dealers go, any accessories added do not necessarily mean an increase in book price. Only through a private buyer would you gain an advantage. Most dealers will take off the base plate. If they are in a community of lots of RV, it may be possible to sell it as it but in most cases it comes off.

Some of we mutants are "friends" on Facebook and have been discussing an article with the 50 stops to a perfect 50 state Road trip.

It's been noted that many great places are overlooked - but we mutants would explore them as well. So where are these 50 stops by state...

Here is the list of the landmarks you’d stop at in each state on this road trip:

1. Grand Canyon, AZ
2. Bryce Canyon National Park, UT
3. Craters of the Moon National Monument, ID
4. Yellowstone National Park, WY
5. Pikes Peak, CO
6. Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM
7. The Alamo, TX
8. The Platt Historic District, OK
9. Toltec Mounds, AR
10. Elvis Presley’s Graceland, TN
11. Vicksburg National Military Park, MS
12. French Quarter, New Orleans, LA
13. USS Alabama, AL
14. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL
15. Okefenokee Swamp Park, GA
16. Fort Sumter National Monument, SC
17. Lost World Caverns, WV
18. Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center, NC
19. Mount Vernon, VA
20. White House, Washington, DC
21. Colonial Annapolis Historic District, MD
22. New Castle Historic District, Delaware
23. Cape May Historic District, NJ
24. Liberty Bell, PA
25. Statue of Liberty, NY
26. The Mark Twain House & Museum, CT
27. The Breakers, RI
28. USS Constitution, MA
29. Acadia National Park, ME
30. Mount Washington Hotel, NH
31. Shelburne Farms, VT
32. Fox Theater, Detroit, MI
33. Spring Grove Cemetery, OH
34. Mammoth Cave National Park, KY
35. West Baden Springs Hotel, IN
36. Abraham Lincoln’s Home, IL
37. Gateway Arch, MO
38. C. W. Parker Carousel Museum, KS
39. Terrace Hill Governor’s Mansion, IA
40. Taliesin, WI
41. Fort Snelling, MN
42. Ashfall Fossil Bed, NE
43. Mount Rushmore, SD
44. Fort Union Trading Post, ND
45. Glacier National Park, MT
46. Hanford Site, WA
47. Columbia River Highway, OR

Very familiar with some and not so much with others.

Can mutants can add to the list???

Hmmm might have to stop and get some... that looks less expensive than Tinkyada which is my go to brand... ( I'd like to learn to make my own, but most recipes call for strange stuff I've never played with like xanthen gum, etc.)

I think Mr. Malone is more excited than anyone. He's getting some new duds & of course wants some "Mr. T" bling.....

You could boost his appearance by lending him your RV Mutant Olympics WWF belt!
