Still in port at Ft. Lauderdale, waiting for the fire drill. How to don the life jacket; maybe we get to try out the life boats. But first: lunch!

Hey Sue !!!

The photos look great. Some day I may take a cruise, but for right now cruising in my land yacht keeps me Happy Happy Happy.

If I were to take a cruise though I think I would mimic one like you are on, I would like to stay in the warmer climates.

Please keep us posted.

Cheers !!!

I have a problem - I may not be mutant material after all. I confess that I am a vegetarian. I do know people that eat bacon, though.

Maybe I can overcome that obstacle with my first ponderance. Yesterday I remarked to one of my employees that I really wish I was back in my MH and not at work. She asked "Where would you go?" I replied "It doesn't matter - point in a direction and that's where I'd go." She asked "Where would you stay?" I said "In my MH, of course!" Then I told her about the rule of threes - 300 miles, set up by 3:00, 3 day stay. Our favorite trips are wandering about.

Does that bring me back into good standing?
Welcome to you Elizabeth,

We are happy to have you aboard the rainbow. I for one am a carnivore and have been since day one, and I cannot foresee changing that, but part of being a mutant doesnt mean you have to like bacon, although it helps. But it is about not having things and not missing them. So for that it qualifies you in the highest order, you dont have meat and you dont seem to miss it. You have earned your RVM #55 wear it proudly.

Cheers !!!

Welcome to the madness, Elizabeth. I am also owned by an unusual critter, Sena, the RVM head mascot. I hope you have as much fun here as we do.

I am also, the keeper of our alternate communication vehicle -- the RVM email list. We use that when we want to chat only with other RVMs or when we have something to say that might offend the IRV2 moderators sense of acceptable language or topic. If you'd like to join, just send me a private message with your email address and some means to identify that it is you. (RVM # or username will do).

I hope we get a chance to meet some day.

I'm wondering if I got a bad batch, or has that stuff changed that much?

Hi Barb !!

I dont know if the insecticide companies changed their formulas or not, I usually get a variety made by Raid or Black Flag, oh and the is another one called Hot Shot. We used to get lots of bees and wasps at the S&B. The only times I would really get frustrated with the stuff is if they didnt shoot as far as I would have liked them to.. I would think that anything that could kill bees and wasps sprayed into the eyes and mouth of a rattler would really dissuade them from being aggressive towards the stream that stung em. I have even tried to research it some, but so far I have come up empty handed.

Cheers !!!

Steve,

Now I shouldnt have to tell you this, but snakes and I DO NOT GET ALONG, if I was to encounter one that was 7 foot in length I can tell you for a fact I would be running in the opposite direction. I am not nor will I ever be a snake wrangler, in fact when Dave and I were traveling the Big Bug Mesa and I saw that rattler slither in front of my Jeep and try to strike at Dave's sisters Jeep tire I could tell right then and there, these critters are something I dont wanna play with.

Cheers !!!

Quote: What's this first 3 - 300 miles. This is not a NASCAR race. I think 130 miles is a good day, but the DW would quite often like to do more. I sure like the other 2 3's, that's my idea of a good run.

I actually like to drive! I've done coast to coast a couple of times, but 300 is about our limit for one day now. Most trips we don't come close to that. Heck, I'd camp in my driveway if I couldn't get out any other way. Sometimes we only go 15 miles from home. We've managed not to be home except for two weekends all summer, and have taken a couple of week-long trips. I dream about climbing behind the wheel and heading for wherever the road goes.

You mention employees - what do you do?[/QUOTE]

I am the center manager for a Virginia Workforce Center. We are a partnership of 12 agencies under one roof that serve employers or job seekers or both. We are busy all the time!

Usually go by Elizabeth, but would consider other appelations if the right one presented itself. (RVM55, perhaps?)

I was pleased to see a lot of the same people over and over again on our last trek. Seams a lot of people use that rule of threes. I altered that a tad and do 10 to 4 instead of 9 to 3 as it lets me relax a tad longer in the morning.

Hey Dennis !!

I like 10 to 2 or 4 if I cant get to where I need to be by 2, and it gives me more time in the morning to enjoy my coffee as well, gotta have that morning wake up of at least 3 cups, I can adhere to the threes if we are talking about coffee...

Cheers !!!
