I haven't heard from Berthas Kitty Boutique in the Dells about sponsoring our first RVM Curiosity. If have time swing by and ask Bertha what gives. Pick up some Powder Milk Biscuits while you're at it. I'll pay ya when I see ya.

Something about this ad for Berthas reminds me of some other threads I read here. And why we RVMs ponder and what makes this a comfortable curiosity of, by and for mutants.

But even that would still need some kind of bracing underneath for support. Does Comfortaire make RV king size beds? Where are they located? Oh DUH! guess I should look them up myself ... Huh?
If you replace the 1/2" OSB, look for 3/4" cabinet grade ply. Much stiffer than the common grade building ply.

When you look at the Comfortaire web site, notice they sell a foundation separately. You won't need that since yours, like most RV beds already has the foundation. Also, I was blown away at the prices for the high line Comfortaires. They stack 'em up as high as 19". Way too tall for an RV bed. We purchased the 11" mattresses (long twins) which come up just under the window sills. I highly recommend the gel foam or maybe it's called memory foam, topping option. Our cat sure gives it high praise. He nestles down on a bed for the rumbling journey down the highway, waking up refreshed and ready to howl when we stop for the evening.

I'm going to have to remember to tune into Channel Mutant earlier in the day. It's hard, tho -- not only am I on Pacific Daylight Savings Time, I'm also far enough north that it stays daylight until 9:30 PM. But alas, the summer solstice is but a week away and soon the days will start getting shorter instead of longer each day.

It's hard not to play ouside when it's so beautiful. We did have a short rain delay, but that wafollows bed by the most spectacular rainbow I have seen in years, so back outside to play some more.

Sena and her buddy Lily are both passed out from such a long day. Lily, the ever so sheltered canine got to experience real rain for the very first time today. A cloudburst came upon us suddenly and we headed back to the Moho. Sena, clever primate that she is, jumped on my shoulders and then ducked down inside my shirt to avoid direct rainfall. My hands were full and Lily was left to run back rather than being picked up and sheltered from the rain.

Of course she got there way ahead of me and then kept running back to me with a very puzzled presence. Once I got the door open she dashed up the steps and generously shook herself just as I caught up with her. She then proceeded to thank me for the lesson about rain by jumping on the bed and rubbing her wet self all over. At least she had not rolled in dead fish again.

Does anyone else besides me envy a dog's ability to shake water from their body? They always appear to be so satisfied afterwards. It must just feel good. Sena can shake herself, but not with the efficiency that Lily does. I'm jealous of both of them. Why did humans lose that ability?

And what is it about smelly stuff that prompts dogs to roll in it?? Here again, they always seem so proud of what they accomplished and SO indignant when we humans wash it off -- with a bath, no less.

Dogs will eat it and roll in it to cover their own scent during the hunt, and for bragging rights to the pack that they may sniff to see where the roller has been.

I had just such a dog, but it is another story. She was always proud of it, especially if it was a dead fish.

I'm thinking that RVMs will not mutate that much, as regression is not in our nature. And we have enough to do, with figuring out what we dont need, and the Journey.

As a child, I would try to emulate the dog, shaking off the water. I always stayed wet, but did get a nice krink in my neck.

Pleased that the 3 of you are enjoying your surroundings. And a bit jealous, I am.

Your posts always provide a unique perspective that I enjoy.

Yeah!
Just when we think we are going from point A to point B, along comes point A1, maybe also A2 and A3, and sometimes point B doesnt happen at all.

Did I stray off topic here? Won't be the first time I've "wandered".

Moonrover, "class" and "pecking order" do not register with me nor any RVM, as I see it. It is all about the Journey. And wandering is a part of the Journey.

Folks with "class" tend to stay to themselves, and are usually seldom seen outside of their rigs. Must be miserable to be that way.

Talked with a fine camper the other day. He actually wondered if he was a mutant, the way he wandered the country without all of the so-called "fineries" that others have. Sadly, he is non-digital. But we had a grand campfire together!

While I bow to the wisdom of RVM1 I must expand on the principle being stated.

Not withstanding the theory that there is always a point between any 2 points (Wish I could have proved that true during my bar bouncer days. LOL) there would be an infinite number of A# between A & B providing an infinite number of opportunities to stray off any preplanned travel plan.

Perhaps the first Law of RVMdom is, "RVMs recognize that infinite choices lead to infinite mutations of possibilities."

bowing to the RVM that came before all of us.

Good morning RVM1. Hope you enjoy the Duck adventure today.

I sent a PM TEFFYs way at 6:30 last night but no reply. Will assume all is well and LA is keeping them busy.

If Barb and Dave can shake like a dog, I'm opening an RVM Disco!

The person without digital is truly an RV Mutant.

Ah disco! There one day and gone the next. It had a short life, and just as I was starting to get in the groove. McArthur Park ... Lyrics have hidden meaning (was it Jimmy Webb?). The beat of the music and off-key chords made it one of those songs that begged to be listened to again. The lyrics actually have a parallel to the meaning of the words to Scarborough Fair. Lost lover ... wedding ... frustration .....

Seems the days of feeling the lyrics while grabbing a handful of keys have vanished. I know Floyd Cramer felt the lyrics when he played. That's why he flipped in notes to punctuate his emotions.

I have never stayed at a holiday inn express, nor the Biltmore Castle in Asheville. But I did get 11.5 MPG today. But that is another story.

I like my steak to be a porterhouse, a T-bone with the tender "eye" in it. Just knock off the horns, wipe the behind, take the cut, a little sizzle on each side. With Johnny's seasoning, sauteed portabellos, and a fire-cooked spud.

I turn down roads with my Wrangler just because they have nifty names, like Christmas Tree Pass, or Frog Hollow Lane.

I like chocolate, but a little bitter. 63% cocoa is perfect.

My favorite pudding is tappioca... No vanilla.

My grandson, at 2, called ketchup "gup-gup" and shrimp "fremps", even if it was crabs, and I will always call them that.

Nola and I met on a blind date. She hated me. When she needed a date for winter formal, her best friend said "ask that guy Dave. Hey, yer not gonna marry him". Our anniversary is next Saturday. 45

It is a gorgeous night here in the Wisconsin Dells. Brad does not know he is going to ride a Duck tomorrow.

You RVMs are driving me wild with all these fine posts. Just wish I could think of something to say.

So....Sup?
