I/we would be honered to be RVM118!
As Dave and Di mentioned, declaring the Journey is the Destination is the final step in your journey to mutation. Let's hear about it and some background. We mutants love background.

Hi Nancy!

Like you I travel to find good weather, but I avoid the cold. My aim is to be in shorts and t-shirt weather 80% of the time. I spent last winter near Tampa, FL and am now in Seattle, WA until fall. The 2 months I spent traveling between the 2 was spent visiting friends (some are RVMs!) and family. There are a lot of wonderful sights to see, also.

I sent you an email telling you about the other ways we RVMs communicate.

This is the project of the next couple days. Today started fast welded step frame rails made a battery box repaired water pump replaced 2 side markers put 2 fantastic fans in. Took the two front windows out to start fixing the delamination. Step one done. Tomorrow I'll replace the manifolds on the engine. Install new washer dryer. And tub faucet. And out side shower. Oh and build closet bigger for said washer. Then Friday paint. And finish delamination repair. Very busy guy. I'm so dam tired. Good night rvm world.

Well, all that really means is I would rather be in cold weather, sitting by a fire, drinking hot chocolate and wearing longjohns. What I DO NOT like is being hot. Could never understand people wanting to retire to the south. Don't get me wrong, I do love the south, but can only tolerate the weather during certain months. And that is the main reason I became an RV owner so that I could follow the seasons and not have to rely on electricity for cooling and gas for heating.

I'd like to live in Michigan during May-October and then in one of the southern states October-April. Follow the spring flowers, fall leaves, and avoid snow except for a light dusting which is nice.
Welcome aboard Nancy, glad to have you mutating with the rest!

What kind of pills are you on (I want some) with all that energy. Sheesh! I wish I could just change the marker lights.

Welcome Nancy! Sounds like you have a lot in common with several of the mutants who seek temperate climes....


And, Dwayne, Lil Brother.... you must be feeling better or found some good medicine! Keep it up, you are making us all look like slackers.....
