I know what you mean about not being able to recoup your money on brass locos. I bought my first one, a Tenshodo 0-8-0 kit (1960?) and then at least one of every Santa Fe model built in brass, except the "Blue Goose" built by Hallmark. My grandaughter wants to know why I have so many locos that look alike but she doesn't understand "it was a good price" Good plastic has destroyed the value of brass collections. If you will remember in the late 50's through the 80's, if it wasn't brass it probably didn't run very well, now the plastic runs better then the brass, looks as good, and doesn't cost near as much.


.
Agreed, but having the old brass or metal loco's still 'feels' better even if the plastic ones are less temperamental.

Responding to another ponderance; My guess for the two tank system among others is a weight issue, with the grey and black tanks mixed and being large enough to accommodate all that it would have to collect it would be just to much to manage. I agree with them being separated simply because there are still places where you can trickle out your grey water even though people frown upon it. Grey water really is good for the grass by the way.

Cheers !!!
Some states still allow the use of gray water for irrigation within certain guidelines.

Dennis,

You had sunshine yesterday? No fair! It was cloudy here until almost dark. We did have a marvelous sunset and I saw the moon and stars last night. It was sunny today, but I was trapped inside a hospital until noon and too dopey to enjoy much this afternoon. (a no big deal day surgery to remove an implanted medical device that never worked)

Sun is such a rare commodity up here in the Pacific Northwet this time of year. In the south we had Snow Days where everyone stayed home. Up here we should have Sun Days where schools and businesses close because of beautiful weather. It might only happen 2-3 times per school year.

You are the first person I have mentioned Clare to that had any idea what I meant. Not many people from north of Ann Arbor live in this part of Arizona

National Forest guidelines say to bury human waste 6" deep when you are primitive camping. I figure gray water is much less hazardous, so I dig a 6-12" deep hole and lay my gray water hose so that it drains into it. I have a sewer cap adapter that has garden hose female thread on it so I can dig the hole 23' feet from the RV. I have never seen any signs of bugs or animals interested in it when I go to fill the hole back in before we leave. I DON'T do this with the black tank contents.

GC @ CL Itinerary

I have created a GC @ CL Itinerary Builder Form on www.rvmutants.com

There have been many proposals for group gratherings, meals, and free time activities. The purpose of the form is to identify your priorities and the days and times that should be set aside for them. One thing I noticed in building the form is that we have lots of group gatherings and free time activities suggested and only 6 days and nights to accomplish them. We mutants are resourceful, but we can't be in two places at the same time (and let others know anyway).

It won't take long to fill out the form (I promise) and first one to report back how long it took to complete wins a prize to be awarded by the Grand Poobah at the GC @ CL on opening night.

Even if you are not attending - or undecided, please complete the Itinerary Builder Form. Things can change and you never know, you might end up in Hot Springs in April afterall. And, your contribution will help shape this and future curiosities, and I may learn how to build an effective curiosity planning form

Thanks for giving this a try. Once I export all the replies and table them, I will use our group email to distribute the results. Next up - figuring out how to get some other curiosities rolling in 2014. Thanks for your suggesions so far - you know who you are.

When filling out the form - be sure to check the "mouse over" for information on use of Control and Shift key for multiple responses.

RVM2

P.S. Thanks to RVM1 - Dave, Barb - Okmunky, and Tim - Huntnski for their input on the form. They gave willing of their time this past weekend to review, guide and test.

Dave, at top of page there is a RVM events choice, click on it, if it drops a box down the builder in one of the choices. My I pad would not drop the box but did go to the rents screen, at very bottom of the Events screen you will see the Itinary Builder listed and you can click on it!

Living in the Pacific North Wet we do most track work in the winter (raining) months and play during the summer.

Last year I was at my buddy Darrell's place in Grove City Ohio and he has more brass than ?? and he had a new UP FEF (4-8-4) in plastic that was a marvel to watch, listen to and see run. In came in at 1/2 the cost of his brass FEF and out performed it in every way.

Sorry for not replying to this earlier but it somehow missed my line of site and I had to go back to look for it when I saw it quoted in a comment much further on.

I hate to say this but today was the fourth in a row of sunshine. It see some sort of record for this area for this time of year. Definitive proof of climate changing global warming doncha know. The areas east and north of us were socked in to mountain top level and everything above 3500 feet is snow covered.

Do you get to keep the removed item, for posterity eh?

The neat thing is I got part of the biggest part of exterior Christmas Decorations up and didn't get soaked doing it.

Steve, I will go fill out the form on the off chance Denise and I can get there, but it requires a promise that Wayne's planned "Bobbing for French Fries" isn't adopted as one the mutant games.
