People use dogs like Bess to herd them away from areas where people want to play, her brother Bruce works in the KC area... their posture and manner makes them look like coyotes on the hunt, but they are trained just to move them away ...get them to fly off to another area, they bring the dogs in at a different time each day so the geese don't get used to seeing them at the same spots/same time. The dogs even swim after reluctant flyers to get them moving away. When I went to the farm to pick a dog, it was between Bess and Bruce... Bess tried harder for my affection. I figured she was up to the task of being my cancer recovery plan, and boy we sure put the miles on walking since then, she doesn't let you be if you have sat around on your rumpus for too long.

First, look all around your RV & find something you dont have, but dont miss.. I had a real hard time with this one cuz how do you find something that you dont have... Hmmmm, a curiosity of a mutant logic...

Second, declare that the "Journey is my Destination"... I have no hint for this one...

Finally, I noticed you are from Mexicafornia & I completely understand that anyone from Chula Vista will make their own rules...

Signing off with a distant memory of Lemon Grove / Spring Valley when I was innocent...

I hope this will help with your "Test" & you will be accepted by our leaders.

Finally, if you cant afford the "Dues", I will gladly send a check in your name...

And if you're looking for a way to spend the first week of February - you are welcome to join us in Tucson... let us know and we'll post the details!

Welcome, in advance, to the RVMdom!

Well I was told to look around my RV to talk about something my RV has or does not have that I do not miss.

1. It does not have any slide out,,,,, Would like to have one but I sure as heck do not miss having one.

My favorite destination is somewhere where it's quiet and there are no beggar's asking for loose change.

Welcome w6pea aka RVM129! You have joined a great group of mutants. Tell us a little more about yourself.

DH & I live in the great state of Idaho and are RV part timers. I still have an almost 92 year old dad that I keep a close eye on so we can't be gone on the road for an extended period of time yet. But one day... If you are ever in our neck of the woods, we'd love to mini-c with you. (mini-c is a get together of a small group of mutants, Can't remember how many). Who has our lexicon for mutant talk?

So good to have you join us, Pat. I have sent you 2 PMs that will help you navigate this new world you have just joined. I hope you have as much fun here as I do.

When Steve mentioned that 16 of us will be in Tucson the first week of February, he failed to mention that's 16 rigs which equates to about 29 people, plus a few that will join us without their Rainbow Riders.

And if you are a solo rider like myself, be assured that you will feel very welcomed into this quirky family. Our Grande Curiosities are fun and memorable experiences. I do hope you can join us.

Well, we had a hot, steamy, slick (buttery) and sticky ol mess going on tonight... we made the candy canes. It all happens so fast, you really have to work fast when you are handling hot molten sugar! 8 hands made it faster than usual, and I was the only one who got a burn tonight. Might be a record for the least burns for us! Wow!... when you add the peppermint, it sure will clear the sinuses! Nancy thinks we should try doing some in strawberry flavor next year... we'll see....next year, 1st order of business will be to test the thermometer and be sure it is correct... they were just a tad soft this time. ( still a little pliable after cooling) but they taste great!
