We laugh all the time! And we are learning every day just what it means to value the Journey as the Destination. We would not trade this life for ANYTHING!

Cannot WAIT to see y'all at Dead Horse!!! What a celebration we will all have!

Hugs from Mel and Kate
Another rainbow rider! Whoo hoooo!

Can you loan her out? Way to go Kate!

Yeah Kate! Just remember it gets easier each time you climb behind the wheel.

Now, now Dad....
I think this topic deserves a call. Do you recall or did they know the weight at purchase?

I'll check the tires at Deadhorse. If they're round and not over inflated you can wait a week to call. Will let ya know.

Dave is doing his welcome Wednesday -
Monday is Wine and Cheese meet and greet.

Thursday grande smoke out and pot luck.

So..... 3 nights have taken care of themselves.

Hope you have a great night on the rainbow!
Thursday Aaron will be out to work on our RVs. His business card lists him as an automotive electrical specialist, but he knows lots about RVs. At $40/hour he is a real bargain and this is the guy Sena fell head over tail for. PM me for his phone #.

I can just hear it now. Paula"s mom wakes her dad up at 10:30 pm oo April 1st and says, "wake up, I'm in labor. We need to get to the hospital." Dad grumbles, "That's enough April Fools jokes for this year, go back to sleep." Happy Birthday, Paula!

And Sandee -- I'm glad you are once again amongst those who feel human. Stay well!

Well, we had some sad news today, My niece who lives in Brazil had her baby boy today and he only lived for 3 hours. He was healthy until this last week, when she slowly lost the amniotic fluid this week sometime and the sono at her regular OB visit this AM revealed that. He was due last Sunday. They took her in for a emergency C Section, baby got stressed and released his bowels in the uterus, and somehow inhaled it... he had 2 heart attacks in the first hour after being born, they put the fella on a ventilator after they got his lungs cleared out, but it wasn't enough. She is crushed. They had a mid term miscarriage 2 years ago and were so looking forward to bringing baby Z home with them. This is my little sister's first grandchild to have been born. She is crushed also.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Barb,
I didn't get a chance to call him yet, things have been a bit busy here, but I'll give him a try tomorrow, I know it's Saturday but you just never know.

Hey all, I wish to be an RV Mutant!

My name is Victoria and I originally hail from New Jersey, however I am bunking down in the highlands desert of Arizona now! My RV does not have a television, and I don't need or miss it at all. The Journey is my Destination!
