Redneck mutant driving lesson to the masses.

When entering a fancy-shmancy circle around-a-bout turn to the right properly positioning your 40+foot MH pulling a 20 foot toad across all lanes giving you complete control of all traffic. Then asses your options as to which way to go. You'll be surprised how happy everyone will be when you finally move on.

Not sure, maybe someone else can answer, but below the equator you might circle to the left!

Hey Steve, 'member that quarter I lent you a few years ago, put two with it and drop it into a machine. I'll pay you back with the winnings.

Got the coach all cleaned up an in the storage hanger up the road. It's going in for service on Wed, again. I will not miss having the jacks down alarm blaring away when the jacks are up.

Filled it up with diesel, as that is the way I always store it. Dang! I paid $3.479 a gallon. It's my favorite station here in town. In true mutant form I did not miss paying the 30 cent higher prices up North. (Anything 40 miles in that direction is "up North."

Too late for this trip Wayne. Played fairly long and late Friday night and about 4 hours yesterday evening. They took us for $50 thanks to a $225 win on the way out the door. Bonita Bounder was a joy!

So mutants I have to tell ya. I'm not sure what I like better about the Oxygenic's shower head. The actual shower or the improved water use. I was beginning to think after 4 showers and usual sink use that my gray water gauge was broken. I know I'm late to the party - but this is an upgrade all mutants should consider. It is mutant-worthy!!

Little breakfast - dump - and roll by noon.

RVM2, don't really rely on those gauges. They don't always give out the right information. Most of the time it is a guess at best. I have emptied grey and black tanks then checked the gauges and both showed half full.

True.
I gave up on gauges long ago. Too much work to get them to incorrectly tell me something I dont need to know.
Just something I have that I dont need that is not simple to throw out.

X2 on the Oxygenics. The campground where we spent last winter had 25 - 30 pounds water pressure at best. Bought an Oxygenics and still got great showers.

Well, it actually tastes a bit like Spotted Owl. They seem to be hard to find since they are on the endangered species list.

The design flaw that I see already being built into our local round-abouts is the radius based on passenger cars. Along comes a tractor trailer rig or motorhome with toad and it is going to be a dual lane clog. One way I survive is the old rule ... BIG has priority !! Motor up to the merry-go-round like you own it, use air horns if needed and spin on through. OK ... I don't make many friends with the locals, but after I'm gone they can have their fun wheeling around the circles.

A classic earmark of my uppity yuppity latte sipping community is the city posting a "round-about training video". The cars used in the video were BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, and Lexus. To illustrate how larger vehicles can handle the circle, they stuck in a Hummer then a fire truck. The fire truck took both lanes in the circle.

By the way has anyone noticed round-abouts showing up on the GPS lane assist yet? So far my GPS lane assist is more eye appeal than useful. It flashes a neat picture up for about three seconds then returns to overhead view. Get real ... !! If I'm in heavy traffic, I could easily be looking outside and mirror dancing and not see the brief lane assist screen. Right now the GPS is on thin ice with me, and in danger of being put back in its packing box. Worst case of inaccurate GPS data we have seen was with some of those Texas flyovers at major highway junctions. Latest download updates still do not show the two and three year old highway improvements. I heard a lot of "recalculating" from the little voice in the GPS box. Not a real confidence builder when you are vaulting through some civil engineers dream project.

We discovered something really cool on our last winter trip ... PAPER MAPS. Add to that a new-found talent of reading road signs and mile markers. Wife is showing promise as a worthy map reader.

I've really mutated. I don't miss paper maps.

Spotted owl is just like chicken but it can swivel it's head more than a chicken can. Taste like chicken to me.


Oxygenics is good, good, great. You took 4 showers! I thought there was supposed to be a month in-between those water-in-down days.

Try the "instant" shower. Works for me.

Oh! Forgot instructions.

Ingredients: Deodorant (Roll on prefered) and Fu-fu juice.

Use roll-on deodorant in all sweaty cracks, crevices and under arms. Put on shirt. Dump Fu-fu juice in hands and pat vigorously into cheeks and neck. Splashe Fu-fu juice on forearms. Splash more Fu-fu juice on front of shirt without having it show liquid stains. Go party!

Repeat daily as necessary or until your DW stays more than an arms length away from you.

Dunno, it's amazing how clean you can get with wet wipes or a washcloth and soap! You can stay "out there" longer.
