Close enough. It would be more convincing if it were the north side

We can get to a fantastic unserviced lakeside Algonquin campground on backroads in about 45 min.
Near Trout Creek?

Anything north of Steeles Avenue West is way out in the wilderness.

Make them the prize for the last RV to check-in at CL for the Grand Curiosity and require the winner to display them every night there. That will get everyone there early for sure.

But if I am last-in, can I pay a bacon fine instead of having them on at night around my coach?

I am not a ropie nor a closet ropie, and all of the pack rats would be circling Steve's coach hoping for scraps of roasted peppers anyways.

May I plead ropie ignorance?
I think my outdoor outlets are broken.

What do I get if I am the first RVM at the Grand Curiosity?

If I'm not mistaken, I think it's rope lights!

I use my 'rope lites' as a "locator beacon". Comes in handy when returning after a nightly beer walk. That opposite of a beer run due to the top being open.

Well said!!! Beer walks rule and yes even rope beacons are at times needed. That's because those multi colored light globes hanging from our awning after a few brewskis start to be nauseating.

Let's see, my math, 50% water + 50 air = 100% full. I don't think a perspective on math is needed. Now how could this be conscrued to be anything other than 100% full I must be missing some mutant item.[/QUOTE]

Just pondering, does this mutant math work when traveling? Not sure if I need to fuel up or not!

Tim - pretty sure Wayne is mixing real with imaginary numbers. Can't run on a full tank or air - any more than you can drink an empty glass of water (full of air). His theory may be related the amount of hot air in his proximity.

Wayne need to refill his glass if it is only half full.

Haha!

Well, I do have outside outlets. But they were just part of the package. I used them once to fill up a tire. But, if I become a habitual, incurable ropie.....?

Further north than that, north east of Powassan, which is about 20 minutes north of Trout Creek. Algonquin Park is south of us. Main access to the Algonquin campground called Kiosk is from Hwy 17, but we have a more direct back route. Google street view has yet to find us, lol. However, Hwy 11 is now 4 lanes all the way to North Bay, so cottage country is moving north.

Hi Marty - many possible uses for outdoor outlet. We sometimes take the toaster out and set up next to the baconator - but more often it is used to power this

Ok winery mutants - I could not count the number of wineries between Johnson City and Fredericksburg Texas. The general area has many and even a bus tour (saw the bus but have no details). The restaurants we visited all feature Texas wines. Something to file away under things to do!

Ha ha! Closet roppie. That may fit although I have not opened the box yet. I just might do it next week just to see what a rope light around my RV looks like. Earlene may wish to keep them, then I'm stuck with them.

Texas has some fine wines. We went for Mexican food but it was really not that great. Oh well, next time a better place.

We'll be at Fort Sam Houston starting Tuesday....Till Sat morn.....come on down.
