I would never have that issue in the RV. I don't care what kind of rush I'm in, that won't happen.

Edit: Note, I qualified it with "in the RV"

For those planning on viewing the eclipse coming up I suggest you do some training in preparation of the big event. Each night I slowly turn the dimmer switch down on our bedroom from bright to total darkness. It's a grueling exercise but I'm sure it'll pay off on the big day.

Quite a milestone. I remember when we hit it I was wondering how I put up with Earlene for those many years. Yep! Her side of the story is different, but opinions are like rear ends - everyone has one.

Congratulations to Marcie, oh and to you also.

You are one crazy person - more so than me.

Anyhow, keep practicing. It gives Mary time to get to sleep.

Congratulation to you and your bride. It's nice to see couples making it work.

I just slowly close my eyes for 2 minutes and then slowly open them...

Congratulations Marcie! I am in awe of every woman who can put up with all that Y chromosome stuff for more than 5 years. Dennis, you must be a keeper!

We'll celebrate all RVM anniversaries and birthdays on the last official day of the RVMoon GC. Only us lucky ones will be able to enjoy the goodies, tho.

We're moving inland today and the temps will be higher. Nothing like the warnings though.

We leave Otis, Or (Lincoln City area) for Silverton. One of those east / west slow roads...

The alternate route is 130. We took that on the way to Garibaldi. I don't recommend it. That's the road with the 3 unsupervised 1 lane bridges, no shoulder and a big pot hole that you do not want to visit.

Catch ya later kids!

I'd be looking forwards to the warmer weather given what you're showing. Ugh, note to self, bring motorcycle suit!
