A wife, being the romantic
sort, sent her husband a
text: "If you are sleeping,
send me your dreams. If
you are laughing, send me
your smile. If you are eating,
send me a bite. If you are
drinking send me a sip. If
you are crying, send me
your tears. I love you!"
The husband, typically nonromantic,
replied: "I am on
the toilet. Please advise."
Thanks for the Hershey show info, but we have to be in Frankenmuth, MI the 17 thru the 20 of the same month. According to Google Maps that's an 8-1/2 plus hour trip. Can't quite see us doing it. Maybe next year we can plan to include the show into one of out trips. Really don't see a new RV before that anyway.
No way I can thank all of you for all of your input. It was really helpful. Seems like each year there are new innovations/improvements and the field is expanding. This June we plan on hitting a couple of RV plants in northern Indiana, including Sportsmobile while on our road trip and just see what's out there. Think we're narrowing the gap and almost have a handle on this.
Now I need to ask one more thing of you all. Could you give me the winning lotto numbers for the upcoming lotto? Don't need all of them, just, say maybe four and the powerball. Any help is greatly appreciated!
That's a common trick used for popular parks. Say you want to spend a week at a very popular campground. You are allowed to stay 3 weeks, you only want one. Book a site 2 weeks prior to plus the week you want (book all three weeks) when the booking window opens (some are 6 months, some 9, whatever). This way you have your campsite 2 weeks earlier than anyone else would. A couple of weeks later, when you're within date, cancel the first 2 weeks. You pay a penalty, but have the site of your choice.
Fair, no. Ethical, no. Happening frequently, YES! Sad but true.
I think we're getting there. The old give and take. What do you really want, vs what do you really, really want. The closest we've found so far, with all your help, is the Phoenix Cruiser 2100. 21' on a Ford gas chassis. Has the dinette where I can have my coffee while she sleeps in. Has the walk around bed (which set-up is really cheesy) and that is the only problem. Open this recliner, unlatch the table/foot rest, set it in place and then do the same for the other half. OH don't forget the spanner/insert to make it a complete bed. Now make the bed. NOT!
Had it been a Murphy type bed, pull down and sleep. It would be a done deal.
Has a slide, which is on the OK side of the list, 21', which is on the preferred side as is the Ford gas engine. The floor plan is definitely on the plus side, but the bed set up blows it all.
Plan on making the NDOG in June, which is in Loudonville, Ohio, and just might detour on the way home and stop in and see these folks. Just to see what they can do.
Thanks for all the great advice. Gosh knows I need all the help I can get.
Actually.... God created... THEN he said, "Be fruitful and multiply."
The egg is a product of reproduction. The animal was created first, then he told them "be fruitful and multiply". So, since the egg is a product of reproduction for the chicken, the chicken came first!
How did chickens & eggs turn into dog stories?
I have another explanation:
A chicken and an egg are lying in bed.
The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette, with a satisfied smile on it's face.
The egg, looking a bit p_ _ _ _d off, grabs the sheet, rolls over, and says, . . .
"Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question.
Thanks for all the great input. One thing I might have forgot to mention is the length. If it's under 24 we can park it in our driveway. Over that it's off to a storage facility (which we rather not do). We've been looking at an Avion. Doesn't quite fit the bill, with the crawl over bed and all, but does have a place where I can have my coffee while she sleeps in. Looks more like a van so the Home Owners Assn won't yell. Not really happy with the idea of a Benz chassis/motor and such. Always have a fear, if I need service in Podunk, Wherever how in God's name will I find a Benz dealer. Ford & Chevy dealers always seem to be everywhere.
The Winnie Travato is also very close. But again the bed isn't it. And 46" is tight for two. And again you have the "crawl over". The dinning/coffee area is great. Now, Dodge & Fiat factor don't make me happy at all - rather have a Benz, I think.
Hymer has a GREAT looking product. Both the Hymer Car & Van Compact. Not yet available in the US, that I could find and on the Dodge/Fiat combination.
Guess some more research and spreadsheets are in order. Thanks for all the input.
we have check list we use to prepare for a trip
and a reminder when we leave the camp site. (we have a Sportsmobile with a raisable top and use shore power, hence the reminder)
Been a B camper and really happy about it, but age is catching up with us and our needs are changing. Really love our B and that live style with the movability, fit any where, stealthness and all, but if we still want to enjoy the outdoors for several more years, concessions have to be made. Just want the shortest RV we can find, be it a B or a C (B+ or whatever).
The RV were are looking for has:
A full time made up bed (that you can walk around - that's a DW must)
A dinette/eating area (this one's mine)
The bathroom doesn't have to have a shower, porta pottie's fine!
Frig - not required, but nice
sink and cook top are nice, but not required. Micro wave is a must
TV's not wanted
Slides, rather not, simpler the better.
Not a big fan of Dodge with Fiat chassis, nor the Mercedes. Basically a Ford type guy, but there's nothing wrong with Chevy.
When I try to post, or reply, all of the buttons above the message box are dead. Can't activate the quote, line, email, pic, etc. is this just me? What have I all of a sudden done wrong? Or is it dead?
OK. Smoked a butt. All I can say, to use an over used cliche is, "Holy Smoke!!!" Simply great!
jnharley, mentioned home made rubs. Really want to learn the secrets and get involved in this. DW has an over sensitive pallet and is totally opposed to red pepper, etc. anything "hot". Any starting point to consider for a recipe?
