Speaking of Round a Bouts, I don't like them at the highway exits. You start going around, and never know which lane you need to be in, to get to where you are supposed to turn to get out of the circular turn. What the heck is wrong with intersections? This mutant don't need no fancy-shmancy circle around-a-bout.

Hey, I resemble that remark! I spent the first 40 years of my life in the UK, there roundabouts are a way of life. The simple rule is, the further around you are going, the closer to the center you get. Everyone understands and obeys, and traffic flows freely. Now, put 4 Brits at a 4 way stop sign and they'd sit there all day not knowing what to do.

Well my home town must be "going British" then. This place is frantic for ripping out perfectly good Intersections and installing merry-go-rounds. Gives the traffic jams a nice continental touch. Auto body repair shops love roundabouts.

What are the qualifications to be a RVM and how do I know if I qualify ?

I'm not up to reading all the pages in the thread tonight.

1978 Executive 29' class A MH that might be worth fixing up to drive and use. Three four wheel drives, an off grid rock house, some chainsaws, and a screwball cat.

Briefly stated - your RV doesn't have things and you don't miss them. You make the journey your destination. If you read only the first post - you will get all the info you need. Name a few things you don't have in the RV and don't miss. The journey component is a little more complex - but all mutants eventually arrive at the conclusion - a place is a place - being an RV Mutant is a journey.

Let us know and we will be along shortly with your official RVM number.
Safe and happy journeys.
RVM2

That's all there is to it.

Well poop, My MH needs so many things just to get it on the road ........

But it does have a lot of things I KNOW I don't want and/or need.

It's a 1978 Executive class A party mobile and i don't party.

I want to be able to live and travel in it, in a simple existence.

Me and screwball cat.

Well they made me toss out my ceiling mirrors and blue rope lights. I think that sacrifice impressed the membership committee.

I know I am going to remove the built in rack to hold whisky bottles since I don't drink.

Probably won't keep the built in blender, even though a milkshake once in a while is great, but with limited freezer space, I won't be having any ice cream. Pitch the blender.

The 8 track player will go.

If I remove the icemaker I will gain more storage for canned and dry foods, or food storage for screwball cat.

The chilling bucket in the counter for a bottle of champagne is going to go away.

I might be getting closer ............

Finding cheap gas

At the risk of sounding somewhat non-mutant -- and I shutter at the thought. Y'all all know about GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada, right? With gas over $4 some places I can't afford the roundabout non-interstate long-cut anymore. Today I knew I'd better get gas in Rock Springs, WY so I pulled off I-80 at the first exit and checked Gas Buddy. Flying J was $3.59 but I found it for $3.45 just 2 blocks off I-80. Had I panicked and bought it at a watering hole off I-80 I might have paid $4.09.

Oh, and in the non RVM category. In Wyoming, the journey is strictly a female dog. I stayed in a campground -- something I really hate doing -- for 2 days because the wind was SO bad. Do you know why there are more pronghorn antelope in WY than people? 'Cause antelope aren't smart enough to move elsewhere.

Gosh, I feel better now. My apologies to anyone who loves WY. But I have just 1 question -- W(h)Y?

Welcome to RVMdom, mtnmankev!
You are RVM35.
You have demonstrated many of the elements of being an RVM.
You are now free to Mutate around the country.

And I promise I will NOT tow my pickup truck with a Suzuki Samurai in the bed.

One toad should be plenty, if needed at all.
