The gentleman who designed it lives in Australia and the think will be about 12 feet long when complete. John's wife is running the loco in the attached picture.

I have a couple of boxes of Brass from when we were into the smaller stuff. Keeping it because we can no longer recoup the money paid for them.

Yes sir it does. I can't wait to get it on a serious trail and see if it is all it is touted to be. I know this much 23 mpg on first tank in town and have the space and the look makes me very happy happy happy.

Well, I suppose a Mutant Jeep would fit in on an off-road with Wranglers. ;-) I hope we have such an opportunity! Jeff and I and our DWs had a superb time on Big Bug Mesa near Prescott, AZ.

A PITA for sure, but it's just a car...
Hope that they total it. Even the best repair will never match what you had before she hit it. Doors will never seal properly, or it will be one annoying problem after another. Been there, done that. Never again.

I would be pleased as punch to go off-roading with my mutey buds! Barb has never been so it should prove to be interesting for her.

The dog on your left is beautiful, but what is wrapped around your right arm. Looks kinda like a black Teddy Bear from here.

Thank you for your service for our country.

Ok, read the first couple pages to get the gest of what's up, then send for my book "Mutantism for Dummies"

Here is a small sampling.

Herb likes swishing his tale and Wayne likes it.

Dave wears a Kimono and threatens to take it off.

Jeff has a jeep fetish.

Barbs little girl looks like a monkey.

Teffy likes boiled okra.

And so much more, Order now and get Steve's Dance Lessons half off!

Holy cow, Tim! That is quite an RVMS (RV Mutant Summary).

But RVM2 is missing. Did Steve pay you off? A bribe? I'll bet it was in bacon!

Back home

Daughter and I are home from hospital. She is doing well, no more seizures and has started medication. Hoping that the road ahead doesn't have too many roadblocks or bumps! Thanks for all good wishes!

Ok, Tim send me my $100 back that I sent you for my membership fee. Gosh how low can you go, charging a friend a fee when there really isn't any. lol

Tell Mary we said hi!
