Heh-heh...
She looks at my little truck-camper and says; “most places I go wont even let that thing in the front gates”
I then tell her that “most of the places I go you couldnt get to without 4 wheel drive and a decent WARN winch”

As an example...
My idea of RV relaxation is not exactly Class-A pusher territory.



I guess everybody’s RV Nirvana is different.

Is that an outhouse perched on the back of that thing? LOL!

No worries Jake, My Old 22' Honey is becoming shabby looking, she needs a new coat of that Floor stuff we put on her before.... spiffed her right up... not sure I'll have time to get that done before we leave for Oregon, if not... well... she'll win the most road weary looking RV award. I'll get her spiffed up soon enough, just maybe not in time to impress the eclipse gawkers.

-Jake-
And a WARN winch is _____? Would that have kept the truck on the straight & narrow? Would it have told area moose to keep outa the way?

Love the Porta Potty! Is that how you get a door for your bathroom?

I took a look at your 8.5' Arrow U via the Wicked Wonderful Web & someone's blog review of one. It looks like a good rig, and ingeniously packaged, too. Love the net under the fridge as an example of using otherwise wasted space.

Ours is a Class A, but we started in a 19' Class B. Before that, I had camped in about everything from a pop-up tent on up to that. I still prefer out of the way & more rustic places, but can't get to as many of those as I'd like.

Happy to have you aboard, mate. Enjoy the banter, dream ahead, & you & DW will be exploring the rainbow soon!

Oh, btw, have you seen where our use of the rainbow came from? Perhaps Steve would post that pic again ... hint, hint!

Cheers!

The pellet smokers I've seen are too big for the bays also. Mine is the Smokey Mountain 18 inch model by Weber.
So much for what I remember! Well we are still looking. A few will fit, some are analog so will have to be watched. You add wood chips through a tray that can be reloaded without opening door. The digital ones look more Tim proof!

Was setting at lake when it hit. Fast moving storm so it was furious but fast moving! Son, DIL and 1yo GD showed up pulling their fifth wheel just as the furious part hit, few minutes later it was just rain. Put on rain suit and helped them set up, Mary staying inside with 1yo, imagine that!

Thanks for thinking of us but weather around here ain't no thang!

Well just as I replied to Di, I got a Hot Springs notification of Flash Flood warning. I thought. Oh well... ain't no thang...

Just drove 4+ hours (from central Jersey) in a hellish rain storm to check out 2 campgrounds in central north PA...
Buttermilk Falls in Shunk, Pa and Riverside in Montgomery.

Any campsite that has a <ahem> 'lounge' on the premise intrests the DW and I.
A hillbilly jug band helps too.
Unfortunately we don't have the camper on the truck so I'm typing this from a $150 a night hotel room that smells like vomit.

Every so often Hampton Inn gives me a bad room... Tonight is one of them nights.

Wind/Rain knocked out web, tossed a couple chairs into pool, but we are fine..

Malvern on the other hand, lots of minor flooding. Vendors & "Brickfest" patrons were hit hard the first day of our annual festival...

At least it was NOT a "Hail" of a storm...

Ok so you had no web, you didn't have to get mad and toss chairs around!

Malvern on the other hand, lots of minor flooding. Vendors & "Brickfest" patrons were hit hard the first day of our annual festival...

For those that don't know, Brickfest is a celebration of the brick laying industry! There are two brick plants in Malvern. Laying a brick has nothing to do with bathroom activities.

At least it was NOT a "Hail" of a storm...
The hail of a GC, Which will live on in infamy!
