Welcome Ed, also known as RVM177, to the most mutating group on IRV2! There may be others coming around asking about dues or offering theme songs, DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO EITHER!!!

I'm Carl, from the northeast, hang out with birds (Mac and Boko) and hope to see you sometime on the rainbow!

There is a grand curiosity happening next April in TX, time is running out to get in on that!

This is the V&A Dundee museum (Victoria and Albert). Brand new building with the most weird design. The inside was even more weird and somewhat confusing. The main exhibition which we came to see was called Ocean Liners. Very impressive it was too.

Thanks to all who have welcomed me, RVM#177. I look forward to meeting all of you hopefully sometime soon. Just for your info, I am on a Cancer Maintenance Treatment Program for a 2 year period. Had my third treatment this morning. Have a treatment every other month so that means I'm going to have one in April, but I do not yet know the date of that treatment. If we are able to make the Rally we will but right now I'm not sure. We might drive down/fly down and hotel or motel it to meet some of you, but I'm not sure if the motorhome trip will work unless the date turns out perfect and we can get back home for my April treatment and leave the coach there and then fly back and get it later. I need to check a lot of things though as I have to see my oncologist a week before the treatment and I need to have blood work done at least 4 days prior to oncologist appointment. Lotta stuff every other month!!!
By the way, I don't have rope lights and I dont miss them, don't have a dishwasher and don't miss it, don't have side cameras on coach and don't miss them.

Oh Ed, you are in our OHMS.... our mutant word for our healings.....

Larry and I were at the very first CURIOSITY (rally) and many since, then 2 years ago visiting in Florida he decided to have multiple heart attacks. Long story short, he now has a LVAD, a heart pump. I will caution you to never travel in your rv unless you are an FMCA member...... they attanged and paid for air jet ambulance home to Little Rock, and to get our coach back home....

Am guessing the ďweĒ means there is someone with you? Anyway, we will not be at the curiosity in April, as we have recently moved to Hernando Beach, Florida.

We still have our coach and are TFT, temp full time......

New term for the lexicon.....

Welcome to RVMdom, Ed!
Nola and I were busy with a Great Granddaughter in FL. Now back on the road, I see that you snuck yer way into the clan. Good show!
Iím REALLY pleased you came aboard, but also pleased that the RVM Temps (shhhh! I havenít paid them in a month!) have gracefully picked up the RVM Gavel and not booted you out forthwith (wink-wink).
Again, welcome, RVM177.
BTW, watch out for Tim. He is an addicted cow tipper. My fear is that he may be tempted to tip a Rairie. (Groans)

Dave and Nola

Too, too much! My DBIL would say rather scornfully, "'Tis to lawff!" (But then, he's English, & they don't laff, they lauff.)

Having done ketchup, I'm here to send greetings & ommmms to all and sundry (Who's Sundry, anyhow?), but especially to RVM 177, Ed who might get tipped. You do know what you've gotten yourself into, don't you?!!

A pic or 2 might be in order, since we are still in that galaxy far, far away known as Scotland.

Entering the new V&A museum in Dundee, next door to the Discovery that Martin showed you earlier. See what he meant by weird construction?

I enjoyed it as an interesting space.

Below is an intro to the exhibit we were there to see.

Tomorrow sees the beginning of our leisurely journey across the galaxy toward home in IL. First a train journey to London & an overnight, then the big hop & an overnight in Chicago, followed by a short hop to the home airport.

It's been great that we can keep up w/y'all & share the journey. Lookin forward to the next campfire!

Cheers!

Welcome to the Mutant clan. I feel your pain, as I am going through pill type chemo and 7 more sessions of radiation. This last weekend I got to recharge my energy by going camping with our camping group to Johnson Shut-ins SP in the middle of MO State. What was very special was another couple joined us that we met last year at a park in Jackson Hole, WY. They saw all our MO state plates, and were intrigued at how we planed our trips. We all are from the St.Louis area.

Suspinz; Our group is camping the first Nov weekend at Eldon Hazlet SP Carlyle, IL
