As our last trip out proved, you don't always get where you thought you were going when you get there. Hiuh? I mean - when I fell and bruised my ribs - we ended up not chasing down many of the places we thought we would. I have spoke of this before - but what ended up as a great journey - just what the doctor and my work weary mind ordered - was spent leisurely watching wildlife and the world go by from the comfort of my Strongback Chair and the picnic table.

So thinking back on that and the words of Yogi - I pondered - am the only one that didn't get where they thought they were going while being just where I needed to be? Any other mutants ever headed toward a particular journey that either ended up there differently than expected or somewhere else altogether.

Just a little diversionary ponder for your pondering pleasure. Perhaps I am the only one.

I have to second this emotion .... while on our westward ho from Michigan to South Dakota to Wyoming and then breaking the tow bar in Wyoming, and having to be there 5 days instead of the 2 that was planned, which caused us to have to eliminate a 5 day stop in New Mexico, but eventually ending up where we had intended to, Marcia and I did find out what it was like to live in a really small town, and I was also given a chance to re-teach her the game of cribbage, something I had always played with my Dad, and listening to the coal trains rumbling by and tooting their horns every 30 minutes 24 hours a day, knowing that I will never ever stop that close to a set of tracks again, we did learn how to sleep with the racket, but also learned once more that silence can be golden.

Life upon the Rainbow is trippin the world fantastic.

Cheers !!!

Hey Mark (aka campingman),

Maybe you can sweet talk her some, perhaps just keep it for a bit longer and see if she gets the itch to roll on down the road. I know full timing or heck even part timing isnt for everyone, but sometimes it takes time to get your feet wet.

Cheers !!!

First time 3D

Well my Mutated Friends,

Today Marcia and I experienced a 3D movie for the very first time, we went to an Imax theater and watched Gravity, it was a pretty good action flick with lots of suspense and dodging of space junk. We both enjoyed it but had a hard time deciding between Gravity and Counselor, we will see Counselor next time around. I can remember when I used to think space travel would be fantastic, I am now of the opinion, that I'm much happier just riding my magic carpet and Jeeping as well.

But if you like action and suspense Gravity was very good for both.

Cheers !!!

Hi Marty,

Well I dare ya to find metwurst, the only place I have found it in a sausage form was in a Restaurant in Rochester, MN the restaurants name was Panakukin, actually I think that restaurant is Dutch but that metwurst sausage for breakfast is incredible.

Cheers !!!

I'm leaving my rope lites on to ward away evil lurks. Maybe even dab bacon grease behind my ears.

Still here, just lurking among my fellow mutants, occasionally sallying forth to hunt the wild bacon for sustenance. Those of us in the north have to go into hibernation/mourning, awaiting warmer times. This year we plan to bravely sally forth sans RV in January for several weeks to seek foreign vegitation in the fabled south. I hear there are things called "palm trees" that remain green all year. I will report back if I find such a thing, as others may want to follow.

Hi Tina !!!

Just a note, we have been missing your photos ... I having lived in Michigan for over 50 years know full well what you mean by hibernation, I hope you are successful in your travels, and that you make the trek in time before you freeze completely and can keep enough residual heat to keep you frost free till the coming spring.

Cheers !!!

Cool Jeff!

"AS THE KIMONO OPENS". Has a soap opera ring to it.

I am saving comments and other tidbits from all the RVMs to help me design my monologue.

Actually, my secret is that I got a tiny puppy and I carry it with me in my man-purse and his name is George. (nononononononono!!!!)

(GC@CL)

However, if you replace one word in a movie title with the word bacon.....

Willy Wonka and the bacon factory.
Pride and bacon.
Bacon Abbey
Bacon wars
Edward bacon hands
Joan of bacon
Debbie doe bacon
Honey I shrunk the bacon
Desperately seeking bacon
O bacon where art thou
The sound of bacon

Oh Dunner!... BTW... I got the seeds in the mail. Thank you! If only I could grow them up enough to have them ready by April but alas... the sunshine won't stay out long enough to do that this time of year... not to mention it's been getting right cool at night.
