Mine should say 1957, when I first went camping. Hey, a tent IS an RV: can sleep in it, is mobile.

Why I always drive defensively when in adverse conditions. My buddy Brian Hartt took this dash cam video as he was headed back to port from Nanaimo. Dashcam video: Island driver loses control in the snow - with dramatic results | CHEK
So easy to get sideways when not planning on being sideways.

Sue we'll see you within a week. We will be playing in Yuma and casa grande for a bit but plan to do a mini-c with you and anyone else at first opportunity.

I have already re-done your name tags and they say 2014 - live with it. (Okay! I'll change it.)

Oh no! Not a good sign at all. If it is on the new acquired item it could be the seal on one of the marker lights. Time for some silicone compound.

Oh! Not good at all especially because water seeks it's own level. Time for someone to go on the roof and calk all the items up there - not silicone calk either.

The dryer was running, so i jumped up to see.... Vapor coming out of the bottom.... Thought it had exploded, but what did explode was the line FROM the hot water thingy..... So now we (translated into Larry) get to do plumbing.....
But if we had been outing..... It might have ended up a flood here..... Sorry bout your cold Nola.... Hope you are feeling better

I have read many posts where people with RV's turn off the water at the spigot anytime they leave their RV. Hmmm! I don't but may reconsider it.

It is for name tags and they are for any RVM that is attending a GC. Those who have attended a GC previously already have their name tags. Those going to the GC in Tucson will get name tags - so be there and get a name tag.

Barb, Yep! I purchased Powerball tickes and I had all six winning number on my ticket - then they drew those stupid balls. Not one number, not one. Wast of money. Heard on the radio come from purchasing them that a person has a better chance of being struck 200 times by lightening then winning the Powerball lottery. Why couldn't then have told me that before I bought the winning numbers - then they drew the stupid balls.

I'm holding on to my ticket in case they made a mistake!

If I just say rain, is that a good hint?

Water was dripping in rapidly across most of the dash. That took the length of a beach towel to catch & absorb. Martin pushed against the upper windshield and it moved outward slightly.

The desk is near the front of the long passenger-side slide. There was a good steady drip filling a bath towel with a pan under it.

Sometimes I'm really glad we have a dryer on board. Rain let up, they say it snowed a bit (I wasn't watching), and now it seems to have stopped.

It's no wonder we've had loud whistling wind noise up front as we drive. How does a new windshield go through the rain testing with a faulty seal and still get okayed to sell? Something that happened to it later then?

So yes, Possum, well paid, but well-trained? Competent? Or don't care?

Rant over. Stuff happens, it's warranty work, and we're warm and well-fed, even if we didn't go out to either Lambert's or Cheers.

Oh and btw -- what a football game. Yikes!

Yes or a back flip prevention. Just put a rope on it and have someone pull to keep the front going to high.

I bought some tickets today. I regretted my spending when they reported that out of a jackpot of 900 million, my final cash payoff is just 390 million dollars. Hardly enough to get by. I think I'll head to the casino and make a living wage.

PS: Martin sent an email to our salesman earlier, who responded quickly that he'd get it taken care of ASAP under warranty. He thinks, as we do, that it's a gasket problem.

Looks as if we may be hanging around CW in Little Rock again. 😳 Have they improved their game any, I wonder?!

Sweet dreams, all, and safe travels!
