Diane, I CAN relate. Mater of fact, some days I think I have become the poster child for 90mph in multiple directions. To what end remains a mystery.

Think I'll name the rig


"Hi Anxiety"


Anyone know anything I can do. She has some ativan that the doc gave her but that makes her "too relaxed" she says.

We have had Travel Trailers until last year.
Jackie sometimes will not like things while traveling, bridges tunnels etc...
What helps her is to just take a breath, look down and play on her phone as a distraction.

Hi Rookie... you have wandered into the Mutant thread. Be very careful, bunches of crazy mutants around.

While a seat belted throne is one option, maybe when you are approaching one of her danger zones she could go to another seat belt position further back in the coach or take a short nap with the shades pulled down, or a blindfold.

The high arching overpasses give my stomach the flip flops, but since Sena's feet won’t reach the brake pedal I just have to swallow hard and press on.

Greetings Rookie! Congrats on the new rig. If you'll go back about 30 or so posts you'll see where we coached Sudsy thru the grueling entrance exam. Come back when you have studied up and you could become RVM 174.

Hi Admiral Bill. Sorry to be picky, but the quote is "You may fire when ready, Gridley".

Sorry about that.

Nope, although maybe the first to be assigned a number already in possession of someone else. Sorry, guy: yer stuck w/#174, but that's a great honor in itself.

Besides, #173 & #172 prolly don't share well, either, & they also prolly run w/scissors & could do better. Just sayin.

Welcome aboard! Have you gone back to read the first few pages of this 5-year chronicle yet? It'll give you an idea, if those Arkies haven't already, of what yer in for. Hang on for the ride!

I'm off to serve up fresh dragontail soup. Poor ole dragon will have to grow a new tail.

Cheers!

Jackie crochets a lot, too! Or stays in bed. Good plan!

Hiya, Rookie! C'mon in!

Sudsy just went through the exhaustive & exhausting tests and exercises to become #whatever he is & is now in possession of the newbie mop & bucket. I suspect he'd be happy to pass those on to you. It's been messy around here lately.

Did you read what the entrance requirements are, by any chance? First, tell us at least one thing your rig doesn't have and that you don't miss. Second, declare for us that "The journey is the destination."

Some official person will figger out just which number comes outa the hat next and you'll be it! You can fight Sudsy for the mop. 🤣

Gotta run ... soup's getting cold!

Cheers!
Sue

Just pretend it's gazpacho soup like served on Red Dwarf. Old wuzzizname will never know the difference. Nice guy but a little slow on the uptake.

Yep, Di, totally relatable! Hang in there, 6 ways from Tuesday, and it'll all come right.

How exciting to be almost ready to get on the road after so long. Just remember, unless it's Larry, his equipment, or the dogs, there's a Walmart right around the bend. 🤗

Love you lots!
Sue
