Hi John! As Richard said - the test must be administered and passed. It is tough... and require much ponderance.

Tell us what you RV doesn't have that you don't miss and Declare before the mutants one and all that the Journey is the Destination. With that - the keys to the RVMdom and the Rainbow will be yours along with your official RVM Number... RVM132...

Well said Papaw Steve! I'll just add that after about 2 hours in the company of other RVMs you feel like life long friends. Grande Curiosites are magical events that everyone should enjoy on a regular basis. They are good for what ails you!

John -- I trust you will soon pass your grueling entrance test and be awarded your RVM number. I'll send you the coveted RVM dictionary and info on the other ways we communicate.

Welcome aboard, well almost. Study hard for the test. Just read the first couple thousand posts and watch for all the test questions.

BTW - I still have an ID on the Montana Owners Forum. If you look for it I posted the fix to the refrigerator outside vent leaks. The next year Keystone fixed the problem. I had the 2008 model purchased in 2007, 3400RL. I'm on there as Waynem.

Reasons for not joining us probably vary greatly. For some it's not feasible for their schedule, too far to wander in the alloted timeline, fear of not fitting in with a group of strangers, like to blend into a crowd rather than meet complete strangers, etc.

Well . . . . . . . let me tell you, No one needs to fear meeting up with 1 - 40 fellow mutants. We are all unique. We do NOT need to fit into a certain mold (lifestyle, life histories, religions, political persuasion, economic condition). We have countless stories to tell about the manner in which strangers became lifelong friends after about 2 hours (let alone 7 days).

Mutants live ALL over North America. Mutants travel ALL over North America. All you need to do is let fellow mutants know you're whereabouts and they will be eager to meet up with you in your neck of the woods or their neck of the woods.

Mary Ann and I are a bit biased but we have not met up with a nicer bunch of ordinary folksy types of human beings. Not pretentious. Not "converters". Not "judgmental". Not anything negative.

So . . . . . . if you've pondered the possibility of meeting up with a fellow mutant, join us or let us join you. We have a 98.3% satisfaction guarantee.

p.s. You can reach any mutant you want by using the PM (private message) function here at iRV2. All of us are waiting to hear from you.
Papaw Steve, I have been trying real hard but just can't seem to get us past that 98.3%. Don't give up on me - I'll try harder.

It's just that; It's a real burn, being right so often.

Hi Muties. Kate and I are just checking in. We are departing on Monday (after closing on our house at 9:00 am) for Weatherford where we will get our Ready Brute Elite tow system installed on Arrow. Then we shall mosey on out to Dead Horse Ranch. We're looking forward to seeing some of youse there!

We are also entertaining the idea of going to Bah Harbah in August. Dave, will they allow our 16 year old coach at the RV Park there?

Oh definitely go, they'll let you in, we're a group. You're free to roam the country now, you should definitely book a site and be there! I'll give whomever is there (and asks) a nice motorcycle ride on New England roads, it's a blast!

Maybe if you went and had some real Lobstahhh, you'd be over that hump!

Well put! Now don't expect the rest of the mutants to be that fluent!

So, I booked one of the 5 left.

Debbie sounds like such a wonderful lady & I can't wait to meet her... Oh, BTW, I can't wait to see all the Mutants that can make it too...
Richard we currently are planning to depart sometime after 4th of July and cross through Detroit up into Canada then across to Prine Edward Isle by Aug 1st. Give me a shout if you want to caravan going up or on way back! Hi Ann!
