I don't know what number you are on and frankly I don't care!! Just get me a number to ease my mind about all the years I have denied what I really was.

And now a brief pause to gather my composier and be polite as my parents taught me. Ok all better now.........

It has come to my attention that I may well be a good candidate for your prestigious organization. I do hearby humbly submit my application for membership in your fine club. I can forward more information about my qualifications but I believe the above ranting and raving statement should be sufficient. Please RSVP your final decision as soon as you have finish conducting your procedure for inducting new members. Also you may e-mail me with your secret handshake or password or whatever you use as soon as possible. Thank you for your quick and hopefully positive reply.

Bob and Joan
Woot woot! LOL!

Just to be clear... we care nothing for what you don't have that you do need... just what you don't have that you don't need... now ...was that a double negative??? Hmmm pondering how we say things around here.

RVM 10 here. I have not checked in for a long time. Busy, busy. I had written about our truck problems and that we would not be able to go south this winter. Here is a follow-up. Still need to replace the turbo on the '07 Duramax dually. I did replace the two thermostats - boy was that a mistake! I put a wrong length bolt into the bottom of the oil filler tube and cracked the tube mount. I did not notice this until last week when I got the oil changed - the oil ran out as fast as the tech could pour it in. Cost me $823 to have the mount (which is part of the timing chain housing) replaced. Seems most of the gadgets on the front of the engine have to be removed to get to the cover.

We were suppose to meet 3 other couples (including wife's sister and her husband) at Tonopha, AZ (Saddle Mountain RV Park) this winter but that is out. Sister is upset that she doesn't get to spend winter together.

I guess I will have to hook up the snow plow to the ATV.

Sympathy is appreciated - I'm tired of self-pity!

It isn't often that the RVM Membership Committee is impressed enough with an application to send a PM requesting the missing bits of information. I was already familar with BobJoanFLA by reading and viewing the many pics of the mods they have done on their '86 Bounder. As a Bounder owner myself, I am always looking to read and review the what other Bounder owners are doing. Bob and Joan have dug into their RV Machine with a vengence. I especially like the use of a white "wrought iron" bed frame in the bedroom. If you mutants have any doubt as to what a mutant might do to make the machine "right" take a look at the Mods thread. These two have been busy.

Now if they can break away long enough to tell us they don't have dishwasher, electric dump valves, or whatever, and don't miss it, we can get on with issuing them RVM Number 53!! As Marty said woot woot... and hoot to boot.

Come on Bob and Joan.... the mutants are waiting.

Sounds like something I would do..., which is why I don't do it.

Well, you could always invite them up for a snow plow party?

I read about that MOD but I didn't make the connection. I thought the white iron (?) bed was the living end. Now Stephanie has been making noises about that but they'll have to be a lot louder and a lot more frequent.

That is a beeeeeeeeeeautiful mod to you carriage.

Sounds good to me. Earlene loves playing cards on a rainy day. (Master Card, AMex, Visa, etc. - she just loves playing cards.)

I think it's nap time!!

Ok, so the Cock-A-Doodle Cafe it was, and very fine, too. It's an unassuming little place, but clean and friendly with yumcious breakfasts. Thank you for pointing us that direction.

We have eaten at the Mayberry several times, quite close to the Thor facility, and it's good, too. I just like variety.

Cheers!

hey Sue,

I am glad you liked it, when we were in Elkhart at MasterTech RV having some maintenance work done, they pointed us in that direction as well, and I really enjoyed it a bunch as did Marcia. Now I'll have to check out Mayberry when we go back, thanks for the tip.

Cheers !!!

Hello Bob & Joan,

I am quite positive, or at least sure that you will fit right in with this eclectic group of mutants, but I have to ask you, do you like BACON and do you have BACON recipes and can you pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time, and do you ever have ponderances that just need to be pondered by a fellow group of ponderers?
Welcome to the group to you.

Cheers !!!
