Thank you all for the welcomes!

Lfcjasp is one of two handles I use a lot. DH (retired Navy and VA state employee, retired) and I (VA state employee, retired) have a 2012 Four Winds Class C we've enjoyed for several years. We love camping and getting away from the S&B and yard. We're hoping to take a trip out west to see things like Grand Canyon, the redwoods, Crater Lake, Monument Valley (a lot of these things are on DH's must see list), visit my sisters in Washington State (my home state...DH is all Virginian from Richmond) and then see some sites on our way home.

Alright! Thanks Carl.
Quite welcome.

That speaker is by far my favorite portable speaker. I got one as a present from w*&k and I carry it everywhere, in the car, in the RV, at home. It makes i-devices sound great via bluetooth. Highly recommended.

Welcome Lydia! Once one of the number keepers awaken they'll grade your entry exam and assign you your very own RVM number.

When you come west you'll find a bunch of us, especially if you hurry. Many of us winter in southern Arizona and some prefer Florida. Escaping winter is a passion for most RVMs. Or you could join about 40 RVMs in Texas in April. We're getting together for a week to play in the hill country.

Once your number is assigned Iíll be sending you some info that will help you understand what RVMutantism is all about.

Boom! You're half way there to becoming a full on Mutant! The other part of the test is to name something your RV doesn't have that you don't miss. If you can pass that part you've got it made!

Someone will be along shortly to check on ya, and maybe, if you can pass the test, grant you your very own Mutant number!

Edit; Barb jumped in 1 minute ahead of me.

Well Lydia, we are glad you stumbled upon us, and I am bestowing your RVM# 179.

We have a lot of fun on here as well as some of our get togethers... when you have time, go back and read from the beginning. You will laugh a lot and get to know us... none of us knew any other when this began.

My husband and I, aka Larry and Diane, have just moved from Arkansas to Hernando Beach, FL. He is retired Army, I am retired teacher..

good to have you join us.

Di

Welcome, lfcjasp, (Lydia). No matter what anyone says, I'm the sane, nice, quiet, good looking one of the group. Everyone loves me and i have a theme song to prove it.

When you receive your information by "special deliver email," be sure to ask me for my theme song. it has been a while since I published it and I'm sure everyone would love to hear it on request again.


p.s., I will not hold it against your DH for the service he was in, and I do thank him for his service. Please tell him that I am very familiar with his branch of service telling us that we are a department of that service. Just to clarify, WE ARE THE MEN'S DEPARTMENT.

Lydia,


Welcome to the group. Don't pay Wayne no mind at all as after a while you will do as we all do and just ignore him.

Looking forward to eventually meeting you along the rainbow.



Dennis and Irene.

We add our WELCOME to this elite RV group.

We appreciate both of you for your service.

Now that Di has moved to FL, it leaves just Tim & I to entertain as mutants travel through AR. He is in charge of coordinating visits & I hope you will stop by.

Hope to see you on the rainbow..

As promised, PoP of my latest projects -

The hoop shed is 14’x11’x almost 6’ tall. The garden is just rocks gathered from old fire pits and heavy plastic. I mixed sand out of a nearby wash with some composted manure. I'll probably need to start covering it at night. The blue barrel is water transport. It rides to and from the water station laying down on a hand truck pulled behind Smarty.

So what has been keeping y'all busy? PoP please.

Just to clarify, we needed to work on the TV antenna, so we laid the coach on its side to make it easier.
