Sun has set on another week in RVMdom.
We have have had 29 RVrs step up and admit that their RV doesn't have a few things and they don't miss them. In making the jump to being an RVM you also make the journey your destination. Simple as that. No dues, no RV requirements. Just recognizing that RV happiness isn't having every gadget or gizmo - and it's the journey, not the destination that makes this lifestyle so much fun.

Step right up and take your place among the others. RVM 30 is there for the taking.

With me, it's the destination, not the boring journey. I only go to the dunes outside of Yuma and have done so hundreds of times since `95... when I got my first ATV. It takes me 3:20 to get to my camping spot.

I know where the FM reception gets weak and it's time to slip in a music CD.

Anybody else notice, that when you change radio stations, your MH jumps to another lane or over to the drunk bumps?

Were you a migratory bird in another life Mike?
Perhaps you're from Capistrano?

Oh I don't know... I kind of like the M&M green. AND if you were wanting to.... you could get some Camo paint..... that would be inexpensive enough to do. LOL

It fit perfectly in the little black plastic Sears tool box Annie's dad gave her years ago. Mutants repurpose things every chance they get!
Nooo.. I need something simple enough for me to use....

In my teens I painted my first VW based Baja Bug conversion primer gray with spray cans, looked like an awesome primer gray dune buggy..! In '76 I painted a school bus to MH conversion bright yellow and orange with roller and brush, it worked just fine..even managed to sell it for a small profit..

Now though...greens not 'that' bad....

I black primer'd, with rattle can, a 54 Ford 2 door, when I was in high school. Paid $75 and sold it for $100.

Mike - you managed to make an RV journey sound like the UPS mans route. A job with a payday - destination and the end of the road.

I enjoy being behind the wheel and often just take her for a spin with no destination in mind. A couple of hours out and back to stretch her legs and expand my mind with a little journey to nowhere.

The quote for the day - again from Mr. On the Road.

“You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars.” – Charles Kuralt

Or --- you can make the journey the destination - adapting and changing directions to find new adventures, people, places and things. You obviously love the dunes, where and what you were doing. That's great. But for me - the same place and the same thing, with the timing to a T sounds like work. And while it is possible to love your work, when we hit the road for an hour or a lifetime - we journey and leave the work behind. This is the way of this RVM.

It used to be more work when I had a 33' 5er, toy hauler. I had to unload the rail just to have a place to sit down. Now, with an A and the 20' enclosed, I can just turn off the key and unload when I want.
