Thank you all for being my mutant family😘
Beautiful Shara... just beautiful.

Nice poem Shara. I think it should be added to the scrolls ancient or otherwise.

When we went through there we stay at the military campground. Sorry, not much help.
Take a look at rvcampgroundrewiews for some ideas.

All true!
Where can we archive Shara's poem and those that have come before and those that will come next, so encapsulate the spirit of RVMdom?
Ideas requested.
Dang, this is big, I tell you!

We stayed at Caravan Oasis, Fortuno de Oro, and Cocopah. All were nice

Wow! Great pics. Little gift from Nature to RVMdom's own ornithologist!

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...
Welcome aboard the rainbow. Now the fun begins.

Chicharones, indeed! 🙄
Okra?! What time is supper?

Next on the Henry Ford list might be the home in southern FL. The Fords and the Edisons spent time together there & those museums are quite interesting too.

Cheers!
PS: Do you know/play "Y'all Come"? Simple chords, but really fun lyrics.
No, don't know "Y'all Come." But you could teach me next time 'round.

You're right! The blueberries have played out. I'm sad. But nothing that yummy could grow beside the Grand River. 3 hours of paddling on pretty yucky water. My son tells me it has a rep ... When I got to some shallows, I was determined to not have to get out and pull the yak across the to deeper water. Got stuck a couple of times but never set a toe in that water. I think the rivers in the UP are much more pristine.

Pics, Possum? Your vocabulary is like something from NASA, dude.You are definitely in a different category...
Can't wait to see y'all again! The great RVMooning will be here before we know it.

Wow, one day without Internet and it takes me a long time to catch up. Writer's block is not a problem with this group. Spent Friday night in Cherokee, NC after finishing the Blue Ridge. Campground was packed for the holiday weekend, and had no internet.

Was a beautiful drive down the parkway, but the trees above 4500 feet both north and south of Ashville are low hanging. A few times I must have looked like I was running an obstacle course Friday morning after the downpour, there were low clouds also. At one time I was down to 10 mph with flashers, hoping no one had stopped in the middle of the road. Drop below 4500 feet and it cleared up, then right back up into the clouds again. It was fun I tell ya

Back in TN now so SIL and BIL can take a short trip, then we will start the slow trip towards AZ. We skipped the OBX due to Hermine, just about went right over the top of them. Maybe next year.

Jake
