Had a great time with all of you.
I'm getting some stuff done on my van.
New water pump and winterizing kit which I might need if I get my sanitation stuff fixed. Working on my furnace now. It's short cycling. Trying to clean it without taking it all the way out.
Why do they hard wire stuff you are supposed to service every year?

Today is a special day for Jackie, Sheba and I.

We closed on the sale of our house one year ago. Woot Woot
Thought I would share some thoughts.....
Neither of us miss the house, it was too big and just too much w**k.
The year has gone by fast....
Slower is better, when you can spend at least a month in one spot it saves money.
You still spend money.... Health insurance and RV and Jeep insurance, fuel, campground costs, and eatting. Seems we run to Wal-Mart at least 3 times a week.
Someday we will have a home base. Probably Tennessee, starting with just a pad for MH.
Being debt free is stress free, Thanks Steve Flagg.

Richard is hard to miss, just wait till you camp with him. He positions his throne (lawn chair) out where he can look down and observe all the other campers. That's where they got the monikers King Richard and Queen Ann! Good luck on the repairs.
One suggestion, if you cut the wires to furnace, go to automotive parts store and get a plug to connect wires back together again. Next time you just unplug it. I'm sure it's only 12 volt.

Double Woot for both of you and Sheba!!!

Carl just curious, how did you keep shower doors from swinging open while travaling before finding that knob that locks it? Our's has a latch, if not latched the doors will move when making turns. Mutants want to know!

Come on Tim, you know. He puts the MH on cruise control and stands by the door holding it closed. Sheesh!

Yuma in a few days time, using I-8. Have to check w/ the CG again to see if we can fit in.

When do you head north or is that carved in Jello? Dependent upon weather, I imagine. Yes, I hope to see you, too. The bad news is that I didn't bring the kayak. Details at 10, as they say.

Cheers!
So, you've heard of my travel plans - cherry Jello. We'll probably stick around a bit longer as we have other Muteys in town. We'll need to plan a mini-C. Jeff, are you and Marcia still in Yuma?

Are you still heading west, Carol? I'm still holding out hope that we'll get to meet ya.

I use a catalytic propane heater instead of the noisy, inefficient furnace - uses half as much propane and the extra humidity is welcome.

Here's what our neighbors carry in their toy hauler.

It's a conversion on a standard Honda Gold Wing bike. I always thought that these trikes came out of the Honda factory like that. Bob and Doreen love it - they go out every day touring around and have already done over 100,000 miles on it.
Today, we will visit the Dwarf Car Museum, about 5 miles away. Looks to be an interesting place: http://www.dwarfcarmuseum.com
My DD commented that she thought the US Auto industry was being very inclusive by making cars specially for dwarfs.

Smarty has been accused of being a Dwarf. At 8’8” long, no trunk and no back seat I keep telling people she's half a car - the best half.

Have fun!

Yay, made a milestone today, I get a month without the itchy splint on now!
So sounds like all Mutants are mutating well... Still praying for Ray and Jan, have added a few others to my list as I see them here or on FB. Mutate on!
