Well, sad story... Bob didn't do as he had been instructed from his dear wife who faithfully reads the forums and knows all about running a generator monthly and putting a load on it for part of that time, etc. etc. and so we get ready to go boondocking, and guess what doesn't work... yup... the generator!( ok, I will admit, I do know how to go turn the durn thing on myself as I have done it a few times... pulling that cord is hard though! and I'm never really quite sure I got the sequence right for flipping switches and choke etc... so I like to be talked through it.... but I could have taken care of that maintenance myself so I shouldn't whine...)And, now he tells me the shore line plug has a loose post, so we are calling the RV fix it dudes here in town to see if they have a cord we could put on it... don't know whether we will make it out or not today! The fly in is out as I'm not keen on sitting in hot sun on a runway with no air conditioning. But we were going to just go camp at La Cygne... we'll see if we make it! Wish me luck... Honey is itching to go as I am too! Need some camping... must have camping... gonna go berserk with no camping!

I went back and read from the beginning to current and was not disappointed. This thread reads like a good book with mysteries, excitement, tears, and joys. Throw in the ponders, the roaming, the beautiful pics, and wonderful places to add to your got to see list ( or should say lust -wait till you get to that page for the meaning) , and you will not find a finer read.

Interesting, we had lunch at an old Bordello in Cody Wy. Not The Hotel Irma, but another joint named Cassie's. Excellent Buffalo and Elk Burger but no tarts to be found. Buffalo Dam and reservoir too. Click image for larger version

R U an RV Mutant too?

RVMs, my family thanks you for the many fine congrats.
Hayden arrived via natural birth at 330AM after 6 hours of labor and 4 minutes of "push". 7 lb 3 oz, 18 inches.
We didn't know until 4AM, and Nola had sympathy pains about 215AM!!
Megan (AKA Iron Woman) and Hayden were quite a team. Meg even held her phone so hubby overseas could hear Haydens first cry.
No buttons popped. Expando shorts!
Thanks so very much my dear friends!

Don't get Wayne to drive you to the RV store to get one either. He charged me $50.00 just to drive me round the block during the Tucson GC last February.

We sent up the RVM We're Here Sign but I guess there aren't any mutants nearby...

I'd have done it $40.

Hey, if it will help we could all type slower for you to get caught up sooner. Page 73 is about chapter two in this ongoing chronicle so you better read for longer periods while we are typing slower. You only have 20 short of four thousand pages to go.

Y'all Texas types are all kinda troublemakers ain't yuh? Asking this band of Merry Mutants to disparage anyone who picks John Wayne and Steve McQueen as movie heros. Them there's fighting words to some.

Just jump in with both booties and see if y'all can survive the grueling pace we set. Welcome aboard when you finally get here.
