It worked great first trip out, then had a wiring ( mice) problem in the engine, then up and died, I was already enamored by her and had no luck when looking at more units...sold before we got there with the $$, so we gave up and put a rebuilt in her... she's done us good since then. Been to Yellowstone, Utah, Idaho, Coastal Texas and Arkansas on different long trips... well, we did have trouble on the way to Utah last year... slept in the mechanic's parking area, can't remember what her trouble was, but got her fixed up and no trouble since then...
Coming from MT, Lolo pass would mostly be downhill. You could put her in neutral and coast for miles.

Marty here... not a full timer, no plans to be one, but enjoy the company and mindset of most folks who claim mutancy here... it's kind of like I found my adopted family. Being in the middle of this grand country, we get visitors occasionally on thier way east or west, or north or south... Just 20 minutes south of Kansas City area in a quiet charming little town.

So, I'm still trying to catch up from being caught up when I got back from Girl's camp.... but, I wish to inform Barb... I made my reservation for the official RVM mooning.. Being a little rig helped assure me a spot! I understand there is one on standby who is a big 40 footer....iffin we get everybody... we could take over all the RV parks down there! Now wouldn't that be somethin! What does one drink when celebrating the moon thing? Will there be an official drink with which we toast the the grand event? Will there be a special dance? Will we all wear our kimono's to greet RVMoon?
I made the reservation on faith... with my luck, we'll be having another wedding or grand baby then...LOL! I hope it all works out! I hope Honey will be fit for the trip... She gets to go out dry camping on the airfield July 7-9 for a power chute fly in...I hope to get video this time so I can catch a little clip of all the power chutes coming in to land one right after another... it's so cool!
OK, I'm sure I'll find more to comment on by the time I finish catching up from Saturday on with this mouthy group...LOL!
Well, woot woot!!! We will get to meet Marty and Bob at last!

R U an RV Mutant too?

There is entirely too much tension today.
But, it is actually very thin.
Just on the surface.
Hang in there! It'll break

Unfortunately Pat broke 3 toes sky- diving, well ok while walking the dogs....they bolted after some rabbits and took her with them. She's fine,wine consumption is still at a good level and she's still able to cook and do the laundry.
I have to leave now to stand bail for Vince after 'the incident' this morning.
Be safe


Barry and Pat, RVM114
Nice going, mention an incident and then wander off!!

Involving Vince to boot

Damn it Jim. I'm a doctor, not a magician.

I said ice Bones. Not dylitham crystals.

Oregon is marvelous in August. High temps in the 70's, no rain and clear skies. I've found GCs are very hard to leave.

Hello all,

Ad one more to the list for RVMoon. We were on the list to wait for an
opening and they just called. So we are golden for the RVMoon get together.

We are presently stuck in Coburg, Oregon awaiting parts for repairs.
Possible July 1...per Camping World.

Safe travels all.
