You would be surprised at what you can get into a small truck bed converted to a trailer. Once put 2100# of 5/8th crush in my old converted tent trailer box. As long as there are no government scales between pickup and your property you should do alright.

If you remember there was a place the three of us went in Yuma that had small rentable equipment like that. It was near Harbor Freight.

Silly thing to say, I could swear that I saw a whole heard of them there deer critters just the other side of the railroad tracks from your place.

Howdy y'all !!!

Well it looks like the Mutants are busy all around the country, we have been settled here in Buckeye but will be moving to Goodyear on Tuesday , and we will be settled in there for awhile, as I have some doctor visits to attend to. But if any body gets close give us a shout out ...

Cheers !!!

If my mother is an RVM (RVM73, I believe), does that, by genetics, make me an RVM? What I can't live without - hot water for a nice shower, a big picture window to see the landscape pass, levelers, strong WiFi (we typically work from the RV when we're out and about), and fun places for the dogs to visit. What can I live without? A bunch of electronics that will break on me, a TV, definitely an outdoor kitchen (I don't like cooking to begin with; why would I have two kitchens?), and a working automatic step (mine is flaky - one giant leap for Tina, if not mankind).

Not bad for a first post but you didn't study hard enough. You forgot about the Journey being the destination.

RVM73 - do you trust this individual to be an RVMutant?


Edited: Oh my! I just remembered who RVM73 is.


Hope you join Tina.

No spit today, although a sign on the gate reads "Spit happens".

Deb & I were at Sundrop Alpaca Farm about 40 miles west of our place on an Open House event. My guild was invited to come along & demo spinning & other uses of alpaca fiber for visitors, w/ the incentive of an ounce of free fiber for each hour spent plus whatever we spun.

I must have brought home at least $50 or $60 retail value of dyed alpaca fiber to spin. All that for an excuse to spin & chitchat & show folks how it all works. Easy money!

Btw, the 2nd PoP is of 2 escaping RVMs. They got away! It was a blast having them here.

Cheers!

WE ARE IN BRANSON! Going to the Conway Twitty show at 2 p.m. We are at Shenanigan's RV Park off Keeter St. Site #1


What Barb is spreading rocks! That is a big change from what she normally spreads!

Dolly Parton's Stampede was worth the money and time. Go to the 7 p.m. showing. First will be about 1 hour of musical entertainment, very good, then followed up by the main arena.

Dinner is served while the stampede is going on. Soup, biscuit, cornish hen, pork loin, corn on the cob, apple turnover and all the soft drinks you can digest.

Don't bother with the Hollywood Wax Museum.

We also took in Nashville Nights and it was good.

Would enjoy meeting up with you if you are available.

Don't be throwing rocks, we are only 2 miles from you.

Bob, if the campground has the "All Access Branson" form, use it for ordering your tickets. There was quite a savings if I remember Earlene saying so. If they do have it, you order the tickets and they deliver them to you. No standing in long lines.

Don't anyone tell Wayne that Conway Twitty died about 30 years ago.

He's so gullible, I served him Vinson steaks and told him they were mountain oysters. One born everyday, but only one like Wayne!
