Skittish? You might want to wear you steel toed boots to avoid broken toes as he lifts his feet and lowers them on your foot.

I've said it before, there's something about a hotel bar, room service and putting on your best duds. Enjoy the journey 1 mile at a time!

Above is post #3. 4/14/2013, the day RVMdom sprang to life!
Fun to look back!
We are going to Laughlin over Christmas to spend 3 nights in the Edgewater Towers. My sisters and fams will be there to.
We will see the new Star Wars flick there, so I will bring my light saber!

One day while reading iRV2 I came across a thread about desert boondocking in south western New Mexico. Folks were using rope lights around the outside of their rigs at night to keep desert pack rats from climbing up into their engine and other compartments.

I commented to Dave then that when they weren't being used to keep varmints from invading and eating your wiring up, they gave happy hour a nice ambiance. And it seemed to me that another RVM quality was finding new ways to use things and to make what ya have carry it's weight.

Ok RVM's - the floors open - rope lights - Mardi Gras - cocktail hour - creative use. Where will the journey lead us this time?

If you have creative ways to make things pay their way, don't miss what ya don't have, etc., you may be an RV Mutant too. If so - RVM15 is up for grabs. Take the plunge and join the group. Tell us why you're and RVM too.

Above from 4/18/2013.
Well, we did the ropus litus and Mardi Gras

And ladies don't forget your kimonos for opening night. Gents, if your DW doesn't read this list you may want to have them get in contact with me and I'll clue them in. That is if you haven't been to a previous GC and you don't want to sleep in the doghouse.

Hi everyone from beautiful Christmas, Florida where the park is peaceful, the weather is pleasant and the wi-fi is sporadic at best (at least where I'm parked). Just got caught up with the thread. Sorry to hear of the various health woes. Let-handed fudge? Shoot, I do everything left-handed... Now off to the other threads to try to get caught up there before the wi-fi kicks me off again...

I humbly stand before you professing my suitability for RV Mutant indoctrination.

I have no musical talent, but I don't miss it -- I enjoy the talent of others.
I have only 25' of RV, but don't miss the other 10-15 some have.
I have no DH, but sure as heck don't miss him or need another.
I do propose that I travel with the RVM mascot, her majesty Sena

Might I be installed as an RV Mutant and assigned an official RVM designation?
