And the ++++ would be it would keep the beer really really cold.

Stevo, how do you manage to stay so tight to the leading edge of RV technology? Don't answer. We have stolen so many of your secrets already!
Look forward to the smoker and distillery in your little tag-along. I'll find you a long pull thru.

My choice also. Could go a full year without needing a jacket.
Back in California again getting the house fixed up to get sold.
Will be back on the rainbow May 24.
Many ooms for our friend that need them, and Mooms for those with rig
problems.

Curious, I went online to see just where Steve and Annie can travel with his new toad. It looks like Annie may have to do some of the toad and cooker driving. But! It also means I could add a trailer behind Smarty and go up some of these mountains at 35 mph instead of 50.

So in 28 of the 49 RVing states (Hawaii omitted) some form of triple towing is allowed. It looks like the east coast is mostly against the idea.

Triple towing is allowed in the following states:

Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
California
Colorado
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maryland
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
Nevada
New Mexico
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Utah

We love our simple life. I am glad to meet so may other RV Mutants. We thought we were alone.
RV Mutants Unite!

Wow, only two posts and RV Mutants gets to be #2. Just declare the journey is the destination and I'm sure you will be assigned a number. AND...don't pay any never mind to those who say they don't like my theme song. It's wonderful.

(Starting to feel guilty yet?) We wouldn't wanna be responsible for running over the red nosed one , the other eight and the fat guy inna sleigh as we wheel our way south in a blinding nor'easter.

We need a master of navigation set in place to decide when a venue is OK for all to attend or you start up a collection to get money set aside for Denise and I (Right Honourable RVM's 40 and 40A) to use to enable us to spend from September on in the south. Wayne offered us the use of his driveway but we'd get nosebleeds from the elevation change walking from the kitchen to the bedroom, so that's out.

Although we could even it all out for the north to south ramble by holding a GC in Bozeman MT in January and I could suggest Bear canyon Campground as a venue. Hockey could be added to the mutant Olympics, Bobsled, Pairs and Single Figure Skating, and maybe Jam can Curling? What say you lot???
Denis, don't be putting me in a sleigh and I'm not fat, I'm just round.

Be out there the last week of May at JoJoba SKP park and the Del Mar for 2 weeks. Love your weather.

For good reason, if you've even been on east coast roads, there isn't enough room on a lot of them for that type of vehicle setup. Heck, there's a road near my house where a tractor trailer (stupidly) tried to go down and got stuck on a curve because he couldn't fit through it. The following week there were signs stating no vehicles over 25' were allowed on that road

That happens in those places that haven't upgraded the roads since the invention of that new-tangled notion called the wheel came along.

Ever wonder why I prefer to stay out west? I luv ya Carl, but you won't ever get me to come to Connecticut.

When you get close give a shout and maybe we can get together for a mini or midi depending where barb and Wayne & Earlene are at that time.

I loved driving the New England roads when we were there last. I don't mind tight winding curves.
