Dang time zone differences! My thoughts exactly, but you got up a few hours before I did. Hmm, that may be one of the only advantages of being on the East Coast.

You know about paybacks, right!

Wayne those post holes will need to be deeper, they'll never hold a fence post!

Looks like Wayne's got one foot in the ground! Told you that wild living would catch up with you!

Sorry, that all I got tonight.

Hard pack, what? The soil I’ve been rototilling looks harder and it’s mostly sand.

I thought all you guys with them fancy leveling feet on your RV put blocks of wood or plastic on the ground under them. Sorta like shoes for them tootsies.

I guess I or we are an RV mutant. The disease started with my folks back in the 40s and 50s. We my wife and I started very simply in a 13 ft with a gas light and an ice box and a wobble pump. A few years later with kids in tow the disease forced us to by a 19 ft with a bathroom and electric and battery lights. It seemed so luxurious. Then it happen again we couldnít resist we moved to a class A 20 ft. With even a generator. So luxurious. This addiction moved on to where we converted two busís and a 38 ft Monaco. At this point when the Monaco got older we tried gradually sham our addiction so we gave our Monaco to our kids and bought a 30 ft trailer. After 3 more years the itch was too much to resist . You guessed it we are back in a 36.5 ft class A. So I ask you please pray for us as we canít help ourselves. We are thoroughly addicted to traveling our wonderful country and meeting wonderful interesting people. Sorry we truly canít shake this monkey on our back for we still love it.

You have a monkey also! Wow Glamping2, that's amazing.

However, now, in order to pass the requirements test you have to tell us what you DON'T have and DON'T miss and then you have to declare to all of us RVMutants in this world that, "The journey is the destination."

That's a lot of studying. You can go back and read the first several posts to get a feel of what we are all about. After indoctrination you may be asked to read all 82,000+ and take another test.

Now if you are smart, you'll only read my post, which are all intelligent.

You have Mary, I have Earlene. Need I say more?


Sorry, that all I got tonight.
I'm glad you caveat-ed that with "tonight."

All this time I thought we were friends and then you start acting like Tim. Rototilling! Sheesh!

Only the Arkies put blocks under their rolling equipment. It's a redneck thang! Us Texans are a step above them.

Sounds more like you Texans a a few inches below, not a step above. That's a lot of weight to put on 4 dinner plate size feet. But the blocks Iíve seen arenít a whole lot more in the square inches department.

I'll notify my RCMP friends that you are ugly trouble but that the young lady with you is a precious jewel.

So yesterday, as planned, RVM1 appeared in the RV Park with his lovely bride Nola. We popped in on them just as they had completed setting up and we sat around and caught up a little bit.

Later we all went to the Blue Gate restaurant in Shipshewana and filled up with food from their nice Buffet. Heck, the desert bar was a mile long. I was hoping that Dave would post the PoP but he did send me his camera picture and I had my camera picture. I chose the PoP to post that made me the thinner and better looking, except for the ladies.

Doesn't this picture look....well use your own description as I know you will.
