I think there should be an annual publishing of this lexicon, on whatever medium is most appropriate. I'm going to be lost if people start quoting terms I've already long forgotten!

Official RVM Lexicon

Word -- meaning

RVM -- Recreational Vehicle Mutant - a person or family who has met the admission requirements by declaring 1) what their RV doesn't have and they don't miss, 2) that the journey is the destination.

Successful candidates are then assigned the next available RVM number. In families the applicants are assigned the primary number, and the spouse uses the same number with an "A" suffix added. For instance : Dave is RVM1 and Nola is RVM1A

Rainbow -- revered by all RV mutants as the best place to be. Rainbow riding is being in travel mode as an RVer.

Mutopia - the ultimate RVM world where every day on the Rainbow is perfect and all Mutants live in harmony, traveling without being attacked by the boogie monster or trolls.

RVM0 (RVM zero) -- the original RVM who brings presents to all good little boys, girls and RVMs every December 25th.

RVMoon -- our official celestial body

Curiosity -- a collection of 2 or more RVMs

Mini-C -- a meeting of 2 RVMs

Midi-C -- a get together of 3-5 RVMs

Great Curiosity (gC) -- a gathering of 6-9 RVMs

Coohmms - special healing magic reserved just for computers and related hardware.

Hoohmmz - RVM magic for sticks and bricks homes needing to sell so that fulltime RVing can begin

Great Poohbah -- RVM1's official ceremonial title

Mutant Master of Lucidity -- RVM5's official ceremonial title

Official RVM Historian -- Deb (Ogeoisplash) RVM107

The Three Mutanteers -- those 3 Mutant tricksters -- Dennis, Tim and Wayne. Designated as those who are picked on the most.

PoP -- (Picture of Proof) Satisfies Mutant requirement of "pictures or it didn't happen"

Deer camp rules -- inspired by Tim, deer camp rules are when you provide your own tableware (plate bowl, silverware, etc.) for group meals and are responsible for the cleaning of such items.

Mutanistic -- the act of a mutant wondering aimlessly about the rainbow

Murker -- Mutant lurker, to view the RVM thread without comment

Murk - mutant lurking

Mutalicious -- wonderfully tasty. Food fit for royalty and RV Mutants

MMDC and MMDC west -- magical Mutant abodes in Kansas and Nevada inhabited by Mr. Malone, Don and Colleen

RVM temps -- those magical unpaid worker bees who do the heavy lifting tasks

IWARP -- I Want A Rubi People -- that group of mutants who are hoping Santa, aka RVM0, will bring them a Jeep Rubicon

FMM - Foul Mouth Mutant - a disease that is horribly contagious and spreads rapidly thru RVMdom causing an epidemic of postings using obscene language.

MHC - specific advise given by Doc Huntnski to treat Mutant specific ailments

SOS -- Slower, Older, Smarter -- the state of most RVMs

STM -- Sick, Twisted Mutants

SFM -- Sliding Finger Mutant

SFS -- Sliding Finger Syndrome -- highly contagious in Arkansas

Finger Slide -- not a typing error, but when the typing finger slides to the key next to the correct key.

TOT -- (that other thread) refers to the "Are you a thread killer?" thread on IRV2 where many Mutants also hang out and chew the fat.

W--k -- What most people do Monday thru Friday in exchange for a paycheck before retirement. RV Mutants consider this word to be obscene so it is never used in polite company.

Toad -- any vehicle towed behind an RV

MH or Moho -- motorhome

DP -- diesel pusher (diesel fueled motorhome with a rear engine)

S&B - sticks and bricks. Those boring places some call home that are firmly rooted to the ground


Family shortcuts

No fear Dennis as it will not apply to you. You need much further help than anyone on here can give you. Consider this a referral.

You probably heard this on also:


A man bought a parrot and was embarrassed when he invited guest over because of the parrot swearing and making lewd comments. He had this idea that the next time the parrot swore he would fix it. The parrot started swearing and the man grabbed the parrot and put it in the freezer. Some time later he oped the freezer door and took the parrot out. He asked, "Are you going to stop swearing?" The parrot answered with a "Yes, but can I ask what the chicken did?"

Worthy of sharing on the humor/stories thread.

Continuing Turbohms for Ray. Sure pray he's doing better.

When I first got Mac, it was the early days of the internets. A lot of "social" solutions were basically the newsgroups (anyone remember those). I joined a couple that were bird related and one was very active, lots of messages.

I think I've heard every bird joke there is reading those lists. Besides learning about bird habits, do's and don'ts, etc., there of course were lots of jokes exchanged. I'd love to hear a new one someday

Sno Birdin in one week

Yep, next Monday we head south to enjoy the warmer weather and our park model on the Little Manatee River near Ruskin, FL.

Lookin' forward to meeting up with Di and Larry, Carl, Tom and Jan
and others that make their existence known to us between New Years and mid April. Then on to Texas to see more of our beloved friends at the Texas rendezvous of mutants.

Today my father would have been 111 years old. He was 39 when his youngest (me) of eight was born. He died at age 61.

I'm already lost, Carl. Frequently.

Now, what was it we were talking about?
