Back at the sticks & bricks after a pretty good 7 days weather wise at a Provincial Park. Thunderstorms rolling through right now, got packed up and back just in time! However, no fish caught.
We are lucky to be within an hour or so of about 5 Provincial Parks. 2 weeks home then off for another week doing a circle around Lake Huron (Via Sudbury,Manitoulin Island, Bruce Peninsula and back north). Home again, then off on August 1st for 18 days in the U.S.A.
Rollin, rollin, rollin!

I'm KISS too. Cause - well - I have stumbled a few times just keeping a list of 38 RVMs. Lol.

Yes. The KISS principle.

A thread for RVM travels would be much easier to follow, to contribute to.

We have over 1200 posts to this thread.
Following it is a bit cumbersome, yes?

Hey, it would still be an RVM thread, but focused.
Travel. It is what we do.

Just sayin....

Git yerself up and walk to the box or set and change the channel, the travel from seat to set will do you good. And remember it is the journey that is the destination. Good luck.

I could go either way. Maybe a separate travel/assistance thread is the right way. Just need to make sure we keep it focused.

Yes thanks. Although, if you would be so kind as to press it again as we haven't had to watch "Tele-Tubbies" for about 15 years.

You could use the title bar as above to notify the RVMS of location and assistance needed.

We could also use the title line if you are in a location to see if there are any RVM's that are in the vicinity to visit.

The Title Bar could be used to hail out to our fellow RVMs for whatever reason and not have to start another thread.

There you go Bruce. My *ss is smarter than you thought! LOL

More mutant musings of a Sunday evening

“All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.” – Paul Fussell

Onward!
