The owner didn't know much about his rig, and couldn't answer a lot of my questions, even though he is the original owner.

We aren't looking hard, but Ms. Mary is convinced that we need a bigger MH. On to the next rig...
Just to get some ideas as to what is out there, check PPL Motorhomes and there are other sites posted to check, then shop wisely and wisely you have done seeing that water stain.

You have stumbled on to something regarding the 65 parseks 'cause I'm betting that is all that your tires are rated for. Most trailer tires are only rated for 65 mph.

Nice docking, and nice digs.

Hey, Smarty has a lock on fitting into small parking spaces. At 8'8" total length she is short enough to park with her front wheels on the curb when everyone else has to parallel park.

And with the kayak and wagon strapped to the roof she was getting her picture taken almost as often as Sena.

We are pleased to report the expedient arrival of the USS UPS, who was charged with delivering our 9 hole drop hitch.

Much to our surprise, the port of landing charged us an additional $170.00, citing that it was not their fault our departure vehicle was too tall for the hitch they told me would work.

I regarded this measure as out cue to leave port before the grumpkins came around to request more gold from us.

Not knowing how well the supplied part would operate, we retained a speed of under warp, something around 65 parseks... but safely arrived at our new port in the planetary system oddly named Louisiana .

We docked at an individual port located off the planet Lake Ponchetrain, but it took us quite some time to make our final docking as an asteroid field, aptly called "horrible traffic because of an accident and road construction", which delayed out final 1 parsek by over an hour.

Upon arrival, we found docking space in an assigned location by the local planetary police which left much to be desired in the way of docking. We found our path in reverse blocked by obstacles that required several attempts at docking.

We were hassled and hounded by the shoutings of nearby standyerby's who falsely tried to interject their own thoughts about how to dock, but only made matters worse.

Eventually, docking was successful, and the crew then enjoyed the many benefits of the local township, to include fresh cooked burgers, and many rounds of the local ale.
Congrats on a successful, all be it somewhat chaotic inaugural journey. Docking is always the most difficult the first time, so look forward to the next time being easy peasy by comparison.

But she'd take the same room laying on her side if it was parked like the jeep.

I would be willing to accept that as the truth in a heartbeat. Denise and I chuckled have at a few posted smarty pictures and a couple were yours.

The driver has way more nerve than I. Our unit makes me a tad nervous climbing through the mountains when we haul a vehicle behind us. Tends to kick the who-you-call outta the gas mileage on long climbs.

You're up early. So how are those Bryce plans coming along?

Good morning mutants! Any one pondering today? We're pondering going to breakfast in Salem... the Highway 81 Cafe.

We are in Waldport and pondering how to move from here and avoid the heat, love the cool weather. Maybe we will be staying on the coast for another week.


Everything is small stuff!

I'm pondering the birthday card I got my mom, it read something like this:

Today is the oldest you've ever reached but you'll never be younger than tomorrow!
