Dave, I'm looking at a 15 gallon barrel (125#) and a 12 gallon RV fresh water tank (100#) just for hauling water from the water station to fill my holding tank. I have a small platform that fits into Smarty's trailer hitch. Or with a tarp under it I could carry the barrel in the passenger seat. I have an older 12v water pump for transfers.

Sue, Smarty is a lot tougher than you'd think. Oh and tell Martin that I took his suggestion and strapped the trike rack to the roof rack until I noticed that the straps had pulled the front rack back about 4". I'm trying to figure out a plan B on that. She needs more anchor points!

It would be easier to flat tow Smarty with the motorhome and flat tow the trike behind Smarty. You may have to change your registration to a sate that allows triple tow.

Gooood morning, Diane! And hey! to Larry.

Before I get wrapped up in the day, let me pass along ... listen carefully, as I shall only say this once, today is:

Repeat Day!

That'll be a do-over, then?

Sue, it's also National trails day according to the Tumblr email I got this morning. Perhaps we should repeat a favorite trail?

Good morning Muteys!

It's sunny and beautiful today, 3rd day in a row! Our second day here almost a month ago was also nice. That is all. Beginning to think this is the Great East Wet!
It's amazing how so few great days can tude me up.
So, how's the rest of RVMdom?

Do we have other RVM Murkers out there?
I sure would like to get a holler or an Oh Yeah from the folks out there!
