Short story - $6K in damage, but we took it to the best garage around. I trust the owner - we run on the rescue squad together. If the frame was bent, he'd tell me. Two weeks to get it back - I specified OEM doors and parts. It's new enough that the paint should match up well. He said it would be as good as new...but it won't be. Now it has a carfax ding.

As for the neighbor - I think her driving days are over. The insurance company has apparantly paid other claims for her in the last couple of years and pretty much told her she would be without insurance when the renewal came due. I feel sorry for her. For her sake, I wish she wasn't leaving for a trip with this going on. It had to put a crimp into what may be their last trip.

Hey Elizabeth !!

Great to hear the frame isnt bent but yeah you will have a carfax ding, sorry about that, I was really trying to talk ya into a Jeep as well. I remember when I had a 67 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 and a snowplow made a direct hit into the passenger side of it, took out both doors and the post inbetween them yeah it was repaiable and it was repaired, but after that it always had an wind noise I couldnt get rid of, unfortunately its just one of those things that happen.

Cheers !!!

Hey Dennis !!!

Cant ya just hear the stings of that guitar making that twanging sound as they break off the bridge of that guitar, there has to be an "ouch, thats going to leave a mark" coming soon.

Wayne and Herb, are we going to have to keep you separated at the GC@CL, or bring boxing gloves, the mutants need to know.

Cheers !!!

I believe I saw a link on the CL site under Things to Do Nearby - there was some sort of offroad / Jeep thing.... You can get to the CL site from the RVM site under event - Top Level not one of the drop downs. There are several helpful links there.

Attention RVMs

Special Request - if you are undecided or not attending the GC @ CL - please go to the website and fill in the sign up sheet. Under the Attending GC @ CL select either Undecided or Not Attending. Providing that info along with your Name, RVM Number, Screenname and eMail address will help me build the email groups - All RVMs - GC @ CL - Future Curiosities etc. This will help me direct things to all - some - or others etc.

I did hear the request to get more Curiosities on the books for 2014 and the email lists and the ability to create forms on the website is really going to us coordinate these things and not crowd the thread with those sorts of things.

So go to www.rvmutants.com and sign up - undecided or NO. It's an investment in future curiosities - not to be confused with investing in curious futures like sow bellies.

If you have already signed up - thanks! I can't wait for April to roll around.

WORK? That ugly 4 letter word. Well, I guess someone has to do it. I hope you enjoy what you're doing.

Capuchins age about 2 years for every 1 human year, so Sena is about 35 now. With a 35-40 year life expectancy (human years) I'm hoping we both check out at about the same time.

Tim !!!

You need to remember that Jeeps have triple seals, no need to have mud inside the cabin. And besides, when you step out of a Jeep you have go look good, its OK to be wrinkled, but middy no no no.

Cheers !!!
