I don't have a diesel pushing me, a satellite dish entertaining me, or a job keeping me from enjoying life. And you know what, I don't care.

Think I can join your merry group?

You're intro is close e'nuff for Mutants! Well done RVM141 - Looks like Johnny Mac10 will be passing the broom and dustpan to you shortly.

Welcome aboard the RVM Rainbow!

Look everybody - another unsuspecting, I mean new addition. Give em the ole Mutant welcome.

Me thinks you're pretty spot on with your observations. I think the key phrase that everyone is looking for is stating the journey is the destination but you're pretty close so it may pass...I'll let the elders decide the peculiars

In any case, an early welcome to the fun side of the rainbow Jake!

Welcome Jake!

And now for something completely different...

It may have finally happened -we have accepted an offer on the house. Closing is slated for 8/12 with 2 weeks grace to get everything out. Looks like we're heading for the Rainbow full time...

At the moment I'm scared sh*tless...we'll see how things go...

It sounds like Jake has figured us out -- except that he is next up for mop and broom duty. Welcome to the madness, Jake! Look for PMs from me about the other ways we mutants communicate.

Welcome Jake, RVM 141.

I'm the sane, lovable, adorable, good looking, blah, blah, blah. I have a theme song that is just wonderful. When you receive the alternative means of Mutant communications, please ask me to send it to you. I'd be more than happy to share it with everyone again.

Ya HOOO! Congrats Dave and Carol! Full time rainbow riding has too many perks to mention.

Have you made your reservation for the August 2017 RVMoon Grande Curiosity in Oregon yet? I know it's a long time away, but Oregon is really busy in August.

I think it's great when mutants leap to the outer rainbow. Mel and Kate did us and I'm sure Dave and Carol will too!!

Keep us in the loop!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. While I never considered myself a mutant prior to reading and understanding what you all believe and do, I now understand that I have been a mutant for my entire life.

A little background:

Spent 20 years in the navy, retired as a MMCS(SS). I was a nuclear trained machinist mate, riding 5 different boats. The education the navy gave me led to a job with GE Nuclear. Spent 23 years with them, retiring for good in 2007.

My better half of 30 plus years has tried to keep me on the straight and narrow, but it has proven to be a very difficult job. One she has not always excelled at. 😄

We have had RV's since 1985. This is the 2nd MH, also had 2 5th wheels. We bought a park model in Tucson 5 years ago, and sold our last 5'er. Last year we sold our home in TN, and moved full time to Tucson. Not wanting to stay there in the hotter months, we bought our latest RV in May. In the last month and a half we have been to the Grand Canyon North Rim, Utah canyon lands, southern CO, northern NM, OK, KS, MO, and finally TN to visit family. Looking forward to hitting the Outer Banks this summer. Every place is a new experience, or a memory refresher that is probably overdue. There is no place I want to stay forever, I just want to keep traveling and see new places and meet new friends. The journey is everything.

Looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. If you pass through the Clarksville, TN area this summer, holler. We may still be here.

Jake

I practically invented them. After tasting my first one in St. Croix many many years ago (Caribbean cruise courtesy of the USN), I try to not spend a day without one. I occasionally relapse and have a beer or a glass of wine, but the mighty margarita still rules.
