They sound out of this world!
Let's not forget our tie-dye shirts and dyes! Bring your supplies!

Hotel wise, I asked for a new room on my second day of exploring campgrounds here in Selinsgrove, PA.
Fortunately this new room does NOT smell like stale vomit. (Nice, right?)

Sunday it's the long drive back to that cesspool I fondly call home; the bluest of all blue states: New stinking Jersey
It's all good,

Mary Ann and I are stuck at home just north of Indianapolis, BUT our escape plan begins its execution on July 15. Colorado, Utah, the great eclipse in Oregon. October finds us in Texas (west of Ft. Worth) for a wedding. Still awaiting news of the urban mutant gathering in downtown Little Rock.

Following the great mooning, our route home might take us on US 12 east of Lewiston. That part of our trip is still in the early planning stage. We might be too pooped to lollygag home after 6 - 8 weeks on the road. But it's a definite maybe.

I finished plotting our course to Idanha this past week. 9 maps and sets of directions using Map Quest. Never has one of our trips involved soooooooo much preparation and campground reservations. Inquires into Estes Park and Moab convinced us that "vacation time in America" created the need for reservations for areas anywhere close to tourist destinations.

We will spend about 75 miles on interstate highways from Indiana to Idanha. We should see many amazing new sites on the "backroads" of America.

Short itinerary: 3 nights in Estes Park, 2 nights in Canon City, 4 nights in Montrose, 4 nights in Dolores (at our all time favorite CG), 10 nights in Moab, then Reno, then head straight north and a little west to Oregon, 2 or 3 nights wandering across Oregon to Idanha. Whew, sounds like fun, fun, fun. BTW, same "wandering pace" back to Indiana unless we're tired and homesick.

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!
Jake, Earlene had to go to a meeting when she was W*(Kin* and had such a room. Fortunately it was for one night. She did a nasty gram to the high high ups when she got home and they returned her money. Just sayin'.

Okay everyone, a word of suggestion at the great mooning. Don't use any of Tim's plates or silverware.

Jake, I just finished putting together some dates going back to 2014 that I'll be posting on my web site. I don't put my web site on the forum here but I'll be sending it out by "other" means. You still haven't asked for my theme song on the "other" means.

Barb, did Jake sing up for the email list?

That is totally incorrect. Everyone is from the North of us.

Attention all ye RVMooners! I just discovered that the bottle deposit doubled as of April 1st. It will now cost you 10 cents per bottle! And that includes everything smaller than 3 liters.

BottleBill.org - The Oregon Deposit Law

Buy your 6 packs before crossing the state line.

If you read the details, it's really slanted towards retailers in that they don't even need to take the dang bottles back! Or they can refuse to take more than 24 at a time. It's obvious who's in who's pockets there. At least here in CT, you can return bottles practically at every grocery, liquor store, etc., wherever you buy the dang things! I know we can't talk gov't stuff here but dang, that just gets me how one-sided things can be these days.

OK, new plan - my bottles that I buy here cost me $.05 deposit. Since OR is now giving out $.10 for returns, I'm going to bring like a thousand or more empties with me and go to those fancy "redemption centers" where one can cash in up to 350 bottles per day and make me some $$$

Might I suggest you buy your bottles in a state that does not charge a deposit like Indiana.
You could be our mutant millionaire

One of the things I enjoy about spending time in family campgrounds, or any campground, RV Park or "Resort" is people watching. But there's something special about watching family campers come and go. The Anderson Camp here in Eden, Idaho is mixed use I suppose as it is right off the highway but the majority are famlies with kids. There was a birthday party for one of the kids here yesterday. The lucky kids came in a day or two early with their parents and RV. Others were dropped off by their parents before the party.

But as watched the RVing families arrive, 98% with tow behinds or 5th wheels, I was reminded of family trips with my daughter, and of my own childhood trips with my mom, dad and sister. But the folks here were 100% pros at the load out and back in. From the bed of trucks, racks here and there came fleets of bicycles, grills, area mats, fire rings, banners. I think they checked everything off the list and then some and never a harsh word or argument. In less than an hour they transformed an empty site into a magic land right outside of town and back to empty again.

Those times as kid for me were wonderful and at least partly responsible for the life I live today. I do believe there is a mutant gene that seals the deal. And I wouldn't be surprised if I just got a glimpse of some of the next generation of RV Mutants.

Btw - the dad's and older boys were deadly accurate at horse shoes. Actually fun to watch. No noise, no outbursts. Just good old fashioned serious horse shoes!

The bottles are marked where you can return them. The ones in CT can be returned in OR (says so right on the label). If no designation of where it can be returned, no return accepted.
