I've said it before and I'll say it again... we never missed "home" when we were vacationers. Never sat down in my TV chair upon return from the rainbow and said - wow, glad that's over, good to be back... and to this very day, I never think - I miss that old place.

Just figger on how far and how long one could travel with the proceeds from the stix and bricks securely in the bank feeding the ATM card. That said how big a trailer would Martin have to acquire to haul all yer toys in. Do we see the vestiges of another possible Full Timer(s)?

Are you attempting to give some credence to your photography and thereby create a Revival??
Don't believe the propaganda posted around there you have to go further north to find the headwaters.

Lol..... This is close enough....

It actually saddens me to see my great river be this little and insignificant.....
My parents were born and lived blocks from the great river.... It is one of the widest points at Helena, Arkansas... Growing up we only had a ferry, there is a bridge since 1962. I remember a ferry for trains, named the Pelican.....

I suspected the relatively new battery was going bad so I took it to the dealer yesterday. After a long wait, I'm told the battery is good but there is a small (3mA) draw which will take some time to track down. Justin, our service writer, knows about our problems with mice infesting the cabin air ducting and gives me a degree of concern as to the cause of the current draw. Anyway, he tells me he will give me a loaner (one of the perks of being a Genesis owner) and, since the only one available is, in his opinion, too small, he will give me a new Genesis off the lot. I had to undergo a bit of sales talk before I left and, no doubt, will have to suffer some more when I return. I don't know why but he really wants to buy our old car! I have to say that I am totally underwhelmed by the new car.

Re your problem with the Lincoln, have you considered fitting a Toad Charger? Then you wouldn't have to stop every two hours (unless, that is, you have other reasons to do so)

TTFN
Hi Martin,
I wouldn't think that 3ma would be detrimental to a battery unless it was very long term. I wouldn't be surprised if 3ma was just maintaining the instrument cluster. But hey, what do I know.

I got my car back today and the battery was bad. In retrospect my Battery Minder charger was hot when I had it on charging the battery for about an hour. It never go hot before so that was a probably an indication. I think the battery was failing for some time now. Anyhow the fixed it and no charge to me.

As for the Beemer - no way. It was the Beemer something 3 suv. Seats were uncomfortable and it didn't not even have a backup alarm of any type. Heck, Earlene's 2004 TC has a ding ding backup alarm. I think the Beemer is a youngster's car. I'll take my Lincoln MKX over the Beemer.

Yes, I have been wanting a charge line for some time now. I'm going to call the installer (Smitty) of my AF1 and see if he will do it. Just need to be home for a little while.

Noticed a seam separation on the big awning. I'll have it take off and take it to the Sail Maker up the road and have it re-sewn.

Keep your old car - it's paid for, right? Let Sue spend your money on goodies she wants. If you want something, just get her permission.

RVM 66 checking with in with an Announcement

We are finally ON THE RAINBOW FULL TIME! S&B is sold, officially presented the new owner with the SNOW SHOVEL (may I never see the accursed thing again) and the lawn mower (theirs was stolen 2 weeks ago). All the stuff is in storage and we are currently in a campground just east of Indianapolis IN. Mail is forwarded to my daughter's house for now. Still doing the w*rk thing for another month or so (tired of the job but like the paycheck), then we head Southwest for the winter.

Last few days of moving out were not much fun (and we dodged a lawsuit), but that's a story for another time.

WELCOME all the new people, was off line for several days and FINALLY caught up tonight...

Now to get Verizon to up our data plan, wi-fi here is not good...
