Hey Ed... we are in pine tree territory and Annie is gathering up a little kindling for you to use at the Great Mooning. Problem is Sparky keeps dragging it inside to his post...

Hi Jackie! Hi Sheba!

Woo Hoo... have a wedding to attend today... Just wish I could enjoy the cake. I'm sure there will be plenty of nuts around... might have to save a few for Sparky and Sena....

Sparky wants to know if Bess is coming to the Mooning.

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.

Icko!!! I hope you "mentioned" it to management! If nothing else, they need to know the state of their rooms. Best case, of course, would be a refund.

What did you think of the cg's? Some of us keep lists (or "lusts" . . Ask Di) of such things. Descriptions & recommendations always welcome!

Cheers!

The cake ... a moment on the lips ....

Several years ago a zoo was celebrating one of their gorillas' major birthdays, 50 or 100 or some such, and served cake to all the visitors, including lots of children. One of the kids asked if the gorilla could have some cake too. "Oh no!", came the answer. "It wouldn't be good for him!"

Okay for the kids though?

Cheers!

I know we usually take planning offline but Tim and I were talking this morning about the phenomenon we have created. We both read that over a million people from all over the world will be traveling to Oregon to catch a glimpse of a spectacular sight. That's right folks, it's a RV Mutant Curiosity. And what a sight it will be! Mutants from as far away as over yonder and just the other side of here and there will be gathered to celebrate life, the RVMdom, rainbow riding and a little thing called an eclipse. That's right. It's the Great RVMooning of 2017.. and we only have plans for 1 day....

Since Supplies - food and beverage shopping will be some distance away (perhaps an hour away for some things) and in high demand... we're suggesting mutants go against the grain and come in heavy... stocked up and fully mutantaed. As for when we will schedule group meals, Mutant Olympics, Day Trips, Fishing Expeditions, etc... we have some thinking to do...

Aug 17th - 23rd (out the 24th).

Thursday Aug 17*- Wine and Cheese - Meet and Greet

Friday Aug 18*- ? Will the Kimono and the Grand Poobah appear... ?

Saturday Aug*19*-

Sunday Aug 20*- Have not looked into area Churches for those who wish to attend local services. We will observe our Traditional Sunday Morning Inspirational, Devotional, Contemplational, Meditational, Ponderable Mutational. Followed by Bloody Mary Morning Noshing.

Monday Aug*21*- The Great Mooning

Tuesday Aug 22*-

Wednesday Aug 23 -

Thursday Aug 24*- The RV Mutant Highsign... as mutants begin to scatter near and far.
---------

Since Annie and I will be in Idanha the last week of July, we will attempt to get the lay of the land and pass on info as we go.

It's fast upon us Mutants. And I know there are still 3 sites on hold for us until July 1st. If you've been on the fence about this, it's time to pony up!

Today us Packing the Rig Day, self-declared, & tomorrow is Leaving for Wakarusa Day. The latter is celebrated by driving the diagonal between east central IL to north central IN. The bigger celebration happens when the guys at the factory finally get the windshield properly seated & sealed & the long slide properly adjusted. Partaaay!

So, there's a Monday to kill. Will there be any RVMs in the area, by any outside chance?

Are ya gonna venture out when she's fixed or bring her back to the farm? Can't believe our paths won't cross until next time. We will indeed miss you in Idanha. I would have loved to see you choice of attire for this special event. Hard to top this... but I know you could!!

Steve,

There is BBQ provided by Laurie and Jim on the 21st. I think it's lunch, but wouldn't swear to it.

I mentioned this before, but I think we need to address it again. Oregon is very eco-conscience. Creating the volume of trash that we typically generate at a GC just won't work. Laurie suggested that we use paper plates and then burn them in our campfires. BUT ... a recent article in RV Life talked about the toxic fumes created by burning anything but wood or charcoal.

So I propose for this GC that everyone please bring their own plate, bowl, silverware, glass, etc. I have a small basket that I'll use to bring my stuff to our group meals.

Eco conscious and burning trash... lol. Dickinson, Texas 1965.

Dave can make a Red Solo Cup last a year and half. But prefers his mutant mug for sippin whiskey.

Looks like something you would load up then lay on engine while you drive!

Barb they add all the dies to paper plates so the flames turn colors when you burn them!

When Mary would leave me and my young sons at home alone for a few days I would call for deer camp rules! Each boy got 1 plate, 1 fork, 1 spoon and 1 glass to last them till mom came home. They were to use only their stuff and wash it if it needed it! Worked great!

Ok Tim,

Providing your own tableware will always and forever be known as Deer Camp Rules. I'll add it to the official Lexicon. Thanks!
