Wayne - I just don't know where to begin. I guess the four showers - at that time - 2 for me - 2 for Annie. As for Fu-Fu -- I must pay more for mine than you do - or you have waaaay more money than I do. Never bathe in it. Lol.

As for things tasting like chicken - I have now gone to saying things take like rattle snake - which everyone know tastes like bald eagle which tastes like chicken.

Sorry to hear about your jack buzzer. I do not like that sound. Instructions say - start engine - bring slides in - raise jacks. Internal instructions say if slides out - jacks down - no air suspension make high pitch noise and flash stop engine light. Or something along those lines.

You my friend are definitely a full on mutant!
RVM2 has arrived back home. Problem with journeys of 1 hour - getting in the groove and it's time to park.

Hey Jerry - how goes. You must be getting excited about the big journey coming up. Would like to make that trip but can't work it in. Or better said - can't get outta work to make it happen.

As for my gauge - it was indeed working. We had just gotten to the point with other shower head that unless we were leaving the gray tank open - we just got in the habit of quick on / off etc. Glad I left it closed. Will keep on eye on the gauge - cause I can't not see it - and when I see it - I can't help but push the button. Doh! Like Pavlovs dogs I guess. :

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

I see your driving skills () need some more improvement you road hog!! glad i'm not living around your neck of the woods.

was wondering if the tornadoes or flood waters were near you but reading your post today you must have servived physically & not mentally. must be all those TUMS tablets your taking.

see where Cape Girardeau has put up flood walls to keep the mighty Miss- out of town. glad we were all there in April. have you heard from any of the others & are you still going to link-up and go out west soon? i've not been on here lately, so haven't kept up but you seem to have a lot of BS to spread around for all of us.

it's getting past my bedtime (7:30 pm) so i'll let you keep (stirring the pot) on this web site-----------BYE

tell Mary that DW & I said hello

Checking in with all my mutated brothers and sisters out there. FYI we arrived in Richmond KY. and picked up our new to us Winnebago Journey today and headed south to the S&B to load it up. We are stopped at a Flyin J for the nite in Knoxville TN and DW and I are happy happy happy. Rain is common down, air on Cold... Snuggled under covers watching the boob tube and chillin! We have found our destination...it truly is the journey( no pun intended...or is it?).

Welcome RVM35! Sounds like you are well on your way to making your machine worthy of your journey! We all have some things we don't want or need - and there are things we don't have and don't miss. This is the way of the RV Mutant.

Keep is informed of your mutation and let the journey be your destination.

Barb - I have to agree with you on the wind - but Wy is a beautiful place once you get off the open road. Motoring through is another story but how about that Lincoln memorial - wind mill farm (good place for one) and everywhere we stopped - good people. Hope you're smooth sailing now. Keep us in the loop on your travels and take care of our mascot!

This morning the driving conditions were actually pleasant. winds were only 5-10 mph and the view was most interesting. I actually stopped and toured Ft Bridger State Historical site. While there the winds began to roar once again -- which causes Sena to climb inside my shirt.

We only drove 39 miles to Evanston before stopping for the night. You are so right about the people, they are very friendly -- just like Texans and Okies where I have lived most of my life.

We are at mile marker 3 and the morning winds forecast is good. We will be a long ways into Utah before they kick up tomorrow afternoon.

As for Sena -- she enjoyed Ft Bridger until she spotted a taxidermy Bison head in the museum. It was truly evil in her judgment and we had to exit. It was nap time anyway.

Adding to the list of things I have and don't need. The front radio/cd player etc has an on off switch on the bottom side of the cabinets above the head of the bed. Lay down - look up - two little lights for reading and a radio on / off switch. Never use those lights either but might someday. Radio on / off -- never.

Repeat daily as necessary or until your DW stays more than an arms length away from you.
That isn't an instant shower! That's a french bordello de-stinkum trick. I would think a Marine would at least spend some time daily with a "water hours" scrub down. lol

We never use our in dash radio/cd player. It is tall and useless. Maybe I will pull it out, build a small box and pipe the dash AC into it. That way my beer will stay cooler while driving.

Just thinking of things I don't need or would not miss.
