I'm looking for some other mutants to wake up or get back from day trips & hotdog eating contests to say howdy to you. Happy Fourth!

PS: I just realized where you're from! We spent some time camped in Golden Valley last spring and enjoyed Kingman.


Very familiar with Golden Valley. We have our RV in a park in Bullhead City. I go back to the house in Kingman when I work. We keep our boat at Katherine's Landing. So able to RV four days a week.

Dirt therapy is good for whatever ails you. I can't carry any plants with us, but I am an incurable weed puller. I've pulled dandelions in 20 states.

Ah, there's the problem Barb. You don't pull dandelions, you have to dig them out about 18 inches deep... stupid taproot...

Hello DFloyd (1 L or 2? I didn't notice). Carol and I sold the house last August and hit the road. Been fine so far, go South in the winter (Tucson last year) then back to Indiana in the summer to see family.

Tried gardening a few times, raised mostly weeds...

Ok Dfloyd, there has to be someone in the crowd to remind you there is a test to being a RV Mutant.

1) Name one thing your coach dosnt have and you don't miss.

2) Proclaim the statement "The Journey is the Destination " .

And hello, I'm Tim, the careing, sweet, honest, trustworthy, loyal and kind mutant. Ps don't believe anything others might tell you!

OH...if it was that simple. LOL

If you recall, I have a whole new "half family" in the Denver area and our plans to join them in early November and then enjoy our trip to arrive in Yuma by December 1st just makes it a wee bit hard on the Flux Capacitor. LOL Of course, if we could get the newest trans-warp drive.

AHHHH...but such is life my friend.

The Journey is the Destination. Sorry I thought you said the one thing I would miss. Now let me think... I don't have a mortgage and utilities. Or do I need something more material. This is my first day and I so want to be a RV Mutant.
