Hey, Rookie movn, Iím guessing you are Tucker! Yes?
The RV Mutant thread was started 5 years ago. If you set the wayback machine and rewind to post #1, you can see how the Mutants began.
Got questions? We have a load of Mutants that can help.
Dave

Details at 10 ... no, that's the news. Try again: Details in a PM.

Cheers!
Dang! Speak up the next time. We have some large, very large, Asian stores around. Well, around like Houston but i don't mind driving there.

NICE JOB, Wayne! Hey you wanna carve about 20 pounds off my photos too?! Hahahahah.
Charlene, I can do that. However the head looks real small sitting on the rest of the body.

Hey! My power pole disappeared!

Good job, Wayne!

Road trip! Very tempting, & certainly worth noting.

Going camping this weekend! Can't wait. Sue, its the place that used to be Yogi Bear Jellystone in Goodfield. Know it? We're taking DIL and oldest grandson, as our son is out of town this weekend. They're having a carnival and craft fair at the CG, which should be fun. Got a pull thru so I won't need help backing Clora Mae up.
......

Charlene
I just brought home more potting soil & more plants, including a couple for my pond in a bucket. This is an exciting time of the year to be a gardener, isn't it?

I've seen the cg signs, but never been to it. You'll have a great time, I think.

Cheers!

BTW, are you sure those were duck and not goose eggs? Enormous!

PS: I see from your answer to Barb that they were indeed goose eggs.

Easy peasy with a MAC using the "inpaint" app.

Yep! Jimmy, besides chickens, has two geese and they are laying 2 a day each. I just don't understand how they do it without a gander. Oh, and they were free 'cause he doesn't eat them.

I made a one goose egg omelet tonight for supper. Sauteed some pre-cooked bacon (yes I did read the report on how dangerous bacon can be), onion, green pepper, jalapeno and then poured the egg into the 12 inch frying pan. If it wasn't for the sauteed ingredients the egg would have covered the whole pan but as it was, it was good. Next time I'll use an 8" frying pan.

Okay, Anthony, we got your name now!

Here is my BAIT post to you.....
Post #1 from 5 years ago:

Just for fun! A while back Campdaven was in a DEEP quandary and posted a thread to that effect. What troubled him was that his current MH has lots of toys, FAR more than his previous rigs, BUT he does not have:

"Heat pumps, TPMS, 4 slides (only 2), Electric basement door locks, Keyless entry, ScanGuage (et al), Residential refer, Solar panels, LED lights, Satellite dish, Clear coat, Diamond Shield, Bra, Toad guard, Full width Mud flap, Spare tire, Engine performance chip, Motion sensor lights, Window awnings, Mini-fridge - Freezer, Washer/dryer, Ice maker, Dishwasher, Extra bath, Extend-a-stay, Outdoor recliners, Exhaust brake, Bike rack, A BIRD? (no clue), Rope lights, 2 way radio, Extended Warranty".

He asked , "Why do I not miss this stuff, and why am I happy without them? Am I a mutant?" I replied, ďYes, an RV mutant. Takes one it know one.Ē While our rig has some things Daves doesnít, I understand where he's coming from. We traveled many years and miles in a '91 Airstream 190 B Van bought new and kept it until a short while ago. We traveled light and happy. Dave has a diesel in the front, ours is in the rear, yours may be a gasser. No engine qualifications for RV Mutants.

Our Bounder does not have a lot of fancy stuff and doesn't look like the lobby of a casino. That's the way this RV Mutant likes it. BUT, opulent rig owners can be RV Mutants too. We canít all have everything, so we get what suits our circumstance, are glad we did and mutate to meet our environment. We don't miss what we don't have. To the RV Mutant, as Dave likes to say ďThe journey is our destination.ď The goal isnít to own the most expensive rig, with the most gadgets, or the place you thought you wanted to go. Itís the adventure of getting there your way and exploring and finding things, places, and people you never imagined existed and adapting or ďmutatingĒ to meet the adventure.

Since his original post we have identified some qualities we agree on. You may agree or not, but your thoughts on how to have a great journey are invited.




RV Mutants
Protect and grow the nest egg.
Don't carry debt. You need the space for important things.
Plan your escape and escape your plans. Make the dream happen, then wing it.
Don't miss what ya ain't got. Be happy with ya have and to be on the road, your way.
Take what ya think ya need and when ya figure out ya don't need it - get rid of it.
Take care of what ya have.
We also like to pay others to work. Will do small things but wonít wash and wax 33+ feet for instance. We're retired!
Dave and I both owe our adventure to our DWs who enjoy laughing at us and keeping us in line.

If you are or think you might be an RV Mutant let us know what ya ain't got and don't need - or what ya must have and how you roll - or any qualities ya think make for a happy RV life, present or future. Dave is full timing now - we will be next year - so how ya did you do it, are you an adaptable mutant or a hard schedule planner, and why? Ya donít have to be full time or ever plan to be in order to be an RV Mutant. But ya canít worry about what you canít control, must control the things ya can, and mutate to meet adventures that come your way. This is just for fun and many aspects have been covered already - but hey - If you feel like being a RV Mutant, join in the discussion. Either way -

Safe and happy RV mutating.
