Thats still about a solid 3.5 long days drive.

A mini Curiosity would work. Slickest1 also lives just north of the BC border

I'm just beginning on the path to gluten free and very low carb intake, so have a lot to learn about allowed ingredients and how they behave and interact. It's a worthwhile path if it will help with the aging brain, arthritis and weight control, but that doesn't mean it is easy to unlearn old habits and learn new tricks. Old dogs, you know....can learn new tricks, but it takes longer!

That's a very good trade to be able to make: lemons for avocados. Bartering seems to be almost lost these days. Too bad I can't pay my doctor in spring asparagus!

Cheers!

Well the way I 'trade off' when making meringue dollops, with mint and chocolate chips is that I use stevia 99.94 1/4 % of the time BUT the purrrfect meringue needs fruit sugar (very fine) some places called Berry sugar, and I only make them at Christmas and someone's b'day (I only eat 2)
so the sin of 'sugar is not so bad (on the big scale) it will cause no permanent damage .. and like you I hate to waste 6-10 egg whites ... even too cheap to try 2 how bad is that..?

Rule # 44 no sweets unless it is a Major holiday, (and they come at the end of the year) except for Easter, that is when you make lots so you can freeze them until the next batch at Thanksgiving!!

So that is my reckoning, works for me, might work for you too

Wonderful new and just the way you want to start the new year, on the right foot!! Congratulations, ...one small step leads to long walks on the beach.

I've only been zip-lining once, and loved it. My son and I went with a company in Boulder City, NV, and it was over rocks and dry terrain. The shore excursions from our cruise ship to do that in Costa Rica filled up in a flash, so I didn't get to zip through the jungle. :( The Ouachita Mountains will do nicely, though, methinks.

Cheers!

DW and I want to do the ZIP line out at Henderson lake on Vancouver Island. A friend of my son works there and he claims its a good run.

That is such great news we are all looking forward to more positive updates on Stephanie's progress.

There are a couple of new RVMs in the Pacific Northwet and Alberta. We could easily do a mini curiosity somewhere near Princeton BC or that area just south in the USA.

Dennis,

For Sena and I to attend, we must stay on the US side of the border. If she leaves the US, our enlightened govt won't let her return. But we could skip this one. Princeton looks to be quite nice as seen by satellite.

Well neither of us thought we could get the tire back on rim muchless aired up but we did. Amazing how my son thought I knew what to do! We worked pretty good as a team on this "had to " project. What started out as a awful event for a NY day turned into quit an accomplishment.

It's going to be a great year, come on GC!
I always use a ratchet strap to bulge the tire out to get the air going. Has never failed.

3 inch strap wasn't enough, we applied good layer of axle grease on rim, then a come a long around tire and bounced a 2lb hammer around tire and it finally took air!

What we have done in cases like that is to spray starting fluid inside the tire, through the crack, throw a match on it a poof, the bead is set. Never fails, if it does just repeat with another shot of ether. Old tire guy showed me that about 35 years ago.

That would have been our next attempt, just didNt have starter fluid with us. I was more excited about my son moving out of that stage "that dad knows nothing "to the "what do you think dad" stage.

I believe and will confirm with my records and Herbs - that all water front sites are taken and 8 non-water sites remain. (Bear or beer with me Herb - it will probably be the weekend before I get to it.)

Regarding the activities and events. I believe the current Itinerary allows quite a bit of free time but also allows those who wish to participate in formal group gatherings and to show off the wold of game grilling - fish frying - bacon makin - and other fun things an opportunity to do so.

No formal meal or event will take place without a sign up sheet. Once you have a chance to review and comment via the Contact Us form on what's currently offered - I will get the sign up sheets out to all attendees. If you attend a meal function you will be a participant in the process. This is just common sense. If you do not wish to attend -or to sit quietly with RVM1 - or go dancing with Sue and Walter - that's fine. No one should feel compelled to attend anything or everything but if you sign up - health permitting - you should show up. Again - doesn't really need to be said.

I have arranged for a friend of mine to bring his band to perform at the Mardi Gras Party. Three piece blues band - wide range of tunes - knows how to play to a room. Translation - right sound level. Not limited to blues - but will give ya 2 - 3 and boot scoot and tummy rub rhythm and blues. Even a little ZZ Top - whom my fried has opened for. Sue - I'm not sure if they know a tune you can call but if you hum a few bars they will wing it I'm sure. I have to confirm with CL that this is ok - but I'm sure it has been done before.

Take a look at the Itinerary - if you see things you want removed or added let me know using the Contact Us Form at www.rvmutants.com

I am really looking forward to this First Ever GC and if you're still on the fence - get moving - only 8 spaces left.

RVM2
Steve and Annie
PS - kidding Dave - I know you can't sit quietly.
Hey Steve !!!

You made it happen a band at the curiosity that is way cool !!!!

Cheers !!!!
