Got the inside almost finished... still need to haul the vacuum out there and do that on upholstery and floor. But... I also noticed Honey needs a bath on the outside too! When we got back from Yellowstone last July, DS was painting the back of the house, which he was washing first.... well, I had backed up into the space he was working at and he was ready to do the second story... so he climbed up the Ladder on Honey to use the roof as a nice scaffolding while he was washing the house, and so Honey got dirty, and he never cleaned her up! Good thing I had moved her and rented scaffolding by the time he was ready to paint... I think he owes me a RV wash job...but I'll probably pay him to do it...LOL!

Caletche is a valuable resource in the south. They use it in road building as it binds together to form a firm foundation that can be covered with asphalt or concrete to make great roads. It's a mixture of clay and gravel. My great uncle had a pit on his land and sold it to some govt entity and made enough $ to build a 1200 sq ft house.

It is however, not what you want to have to wash off any vehicle. It's REALLY sticky stuff when wet.

A while back in Caddo TX, I studied the crawdads there. Loved their towers. Could not get one to grab my string bait enough to enhance dinner.
Had fun though.

NEWS FLASH - NAPLES, FL

Cutter falls again, dislocates shoulder.

While out cycling, the redoubtable Mrs. Cutter missed a sharp turn in the path and fell headlong into roadside riprap*, dislocating her one remaining good shoulder, grazing both legs, banging the front of her cycling helmet forcibly into said rip rap, and collecting many weed seeds and at least one major plant part on her clothing and helmet.

Mrs. Cutter claims she can describe two of said rocks in detail as they approached her field of vision. Weed seeds have now been broadcast between the site of the incident, her winter home nearby, and the local emergency facility.

The bicycle was unharmed.
__________
* Rip rap: large stones used to stabilize bank and roadsides. In Florida These are typically limestone.

Nope! No need to dig for them, just kick Herb's RV's tires and I'm sure some will fall out.

Hey Herb, thanks for getting us off "curb appeal."

Registered today with the FMCA Michelin Advantage Tire Program. The quote from the tire service center was about $85 a tire more than the program price. It works out to be a buy 6 for the price of 5 deal.

Bonita came equipped with Goodyear G670's. With all the threads debating Michelin or Goodyear it's a tough decision for me and the threads were no help really. So other than $$ difference - which program price Michelins were roughly $185 leas than the G670's - how did I decide? I have been watching vehicles for about 2 years. So many busses, trucks, Motorhomes, big vehicles are running Michelins. There were other brands too but doesn't seem like GY was even second. Where they seem to be number 1 is on new coaches or coaches that haven't replaced the original skins.

I have not had a Michelin tire on any vehicle for many years. I didn't care for them and have always been a GY man. We shall see how this plays out. I need to investigate stems as I have also purchased the TST 507 TPMs flow thur setup. Want to be sure to have the right hardware to accommodate the sensors. Also trying to decide if I want to upgrade to Aluminum wheels. Now is the time to do it but I'm leaning no.... Hmmm...

Will keep ya informed - but you can see for yourself at the GC @ CL 4/24 - 4/30 2014.
That's Catherines Landing in Hot Springs.

If you're a RVM and want to attend - sing out. For more info - www.rvmutants.com

Look under the RVM Events Drop Down Menu for details.

PS: Howdy, y'all! Whatcha been up to? (Never mind: several pages worth, methinks!) I'm sure I was missed -- but then, so are migraines and tax bills!

Cheers!

Who....

Lol. - Well Sue - first off apologies for having not replied to your reply to my email a week or so ago....

But OMG - that sounds like some spill. So you probably have Rip Rap Rash too. We old motor and ped powered cycle riders are all familiar with road rash.

Healing Ommms your way!!
