Hit their rear cameras with a laser pointer a few times. Eventually they will take notice.

I wonder if I may be one. No slides, mechanical C8.3, Allison 6.

We don't get out enough so we are yet to mutate.

Is anyone still traveling along with others? Or is it a mass parting of mutants to all paths the rainbow projects itself?
Tim and Mary are headed to the same location - different parks - but tooling along the rainbow together.

Jeff and Marcia and Annie and I are booked for 2 weeks at Lakeside RV Park in Provo. We head out tomorrow.

The others still here - Dale and Deb - and Steve and Mary Ann leave tomorrow in different directions...

We are all almost packed and ready to roll in the morning.

Maybe Steve will eventually enter all the photos on the Mutant web site. OK, he might order the temps to do it.

I use the app because i hate the laptop. Like the ipad touch screen...... Slideeeeeeee. But not the full site because it makes me login each time... App keeps me logged in.

Steve.... This is a new thing since the last IOS update, used to get them all just fine, then for a few days got none...
And i just like to razz ya back.... Thought you were going up to wherever with them..... Which way you heading?


Herb..... We hit every park on the Oregon coast, i think... Be careful with that smokin....



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

We are settled in for a week here at Thousand Lakes RV Park. It's VERY nice, bit nicer with about a dozen RVMs or more.
The "goodbys" are sad, but there are a lot of laughs and fun memories behind the emotional hugs!
Tim and Don tried hard to keep up with Gwen to where we turned in here. 50 to 55 mph is a bit difficult for them, I guess.
Two quick views from camp, more later.
Luv and miss all y'all's a lot already!

oh we see you back there! But where did you go? Our park has plenty of room! I thought at first you pull in station to the left when we turned right. Looking forward to our next gathering!

For the record, Mary and I are staying in same park, same camper, same bed! Dave and Nola are in different park a few miles down from us!


Steve, would have came back by for a proper goodbye but has a leveling jack acting up and got behind. Dave and Don were pulling out. Truly good to see you and look forward to the next GC and the Maritines!

The drive thru the national park was amazing! So glad we decided to tail along.

We're on 70 eastbound, headed to our favorite Lowes in Grand Junction.

Miss everyone already. Love, hugs & kisses!

Greetings Mike and Kelly!
Do you think you are an RV Mutant? Well do 2 things and you WILL be one!
1. Name one thing that your RV does not have that you do not need.
2. Declare the following"
"The Journey is Our Destination"
With those 2 arduous tasks completed, you will be declared an RV Mutant, and will be free to ride the Rainbow.
Dave

Thanks for the info.

Of course the primary intent of the vertical tube is to raise the fumes above the RV, so you need to have at least a two section tube so the rigging can be stowed in a bay or wherever. I made mine in three sections for nice compact storage in a duffle bag.

You may be surprised how fast assembly goes. Do it all from the ground, no standing on ladders.

Now comes the confession. In five years, I've only used the dang thing once. We rarely boondock and run the 17kW diesel generator.
We rarely boondock, either. I'm still not convinced we "need" one.

Thanks for the info. I had heard that the propane detectors are sensitive to hairspray, but didn't know about the CO detector. Of course, I never use hairspray...haha.

Happy trails.
Thanks again, Wayne. I have seen that video but still pondering this purchase. Do you have one?

Di... the fires in Idaho have us on a wait and see or McCall Idaho. When I talked to them the other day, they admitted they had smoke... but no fire. The fire is very close to Deb and Dales place. If you were here you'd know all this.... poke poke. What's up with that battery??? We really missed you guys here.
