I love the  10 am walk time.  It allows me lots of time for coffee prior to the walk.  Once again the  pace we kept,  pushed me beyond limits I would walk if alone! We chatted and almost took a shortcut but got back on track.   The walk was 40 minutes long, burning only 143 calories.  Ask Wendy for the  details.

Dave Brown was the generous and thoughtful contributor  of the FVForum  sign  directing  new arrivals to our spot.  Pictured walkers are  good sports for posing!

For the number lovers (I started this at my coach and stopped it in front of Lucy's):

4459 steps
40 min 11 sec
2.143 miles
3.2 mph average speed
154.4 calories burned ... Not quite a glass of wine but a good start

A few pics from Happy Hour, Monday 1/21:

Edit (1/22): Added a pic of Ann.

Also wanted to mention that the resolution of these are averaging around 100KB - whereas coming from my camera are much higher. Plus I have a RAW format copy of each image.  If you want a copy of any of the larger res images let me know.

I "will" be posting a link with all the pics I take here if anyone wants to download them at the higher res.

     For those at the forum rally that have an older  MH that has fiberglass [gelcoat] that was not clear coated .  My coach is in its 15th year in the sun and it has been a struggle for a while to keep looking good..  Have been reading about people using Red Max 3 from Lows or Zep Wet Floor look  from Home Depot and decided to try it on the roof [fiberglass] to see how it looked.  Was very impressed so decided to do the front cap.  That led to doing the rear cap , then the rest of the coach.  It has been  6 months now and 5,000+ miles through rain, sleet and snow.  The parts that have Zep applies look very good.  If you care to see it, it is the Country Coach Allure  west of the happy hour circle with South Dakota plates.

Yesterday afternoon Wendy and I watched Bill going up and down a ladder wiping the QZ dust of his Country Coach. He's really proud of that shine. ;D


We thought he should have done his neighbors' rigs while he was at it.

 Jeff,
     I told Doug next to me that I needed to try something new.  He threatened me with body harm if I came near his NEW fifth wheel carrying a bucket and mop  [humor].

The sunrise this morning on the desert was beautiful.  Looked like the sky was on fire.

Bill,

On my American Dream, they only clear coated the portion of the cap from roof level down. Most of it was left unsealed. I finally put the floor finish on it and am very happy with the results. I did notice I have a little more flaking occuring so will have to address that when we get back home.

Here is the morning sunrise. I missed it at its peak. :(

It certainly was a beautiful sunrise this morning. I watched it out my bedroom window without getting out of bed, then rolled over and went back to sleep.

Jeff, thought you might want to take a look at my downtown QZ office. Am currently downloading Windows 8 on my help desk laptop. It's a bit over 2g -- and my Vz is only 5g.

I started at the rally site using tethering w/my unlimited and that looked good at first - but then it started throttling down from 2.5 hours to 16 as a posted estimate. So I headed for my downtown office.

When I bought this laptop last fall w/Win7 Home installed, was told I could get Win8 for $14.99 from MS. But when I ran the diagnostic prior to download was told I needed Wind8 Pro to keep all my stuff intact - and that would be $40 more. However, just before checkout after I entered my discount code from Fry's -- the priced dropped back to $14.99. So am a happy camper again -- although it looks like I may have to do some driver updates.

Thought you might also be interested in the fact that a McChicken mini meal in Rocklin, CA w/tax is $3.54 whereas in Qz it's only $3.30! Just another benefit of coming to the RV Forum rally here.

Enjoyed breakfast with you and Jim this AM -- and learned a lot about my HD/SD tv. Thanks . . .

Sharp's 2013 Itasca Sunstar 35B arrived at La Mesa RV shortly before 7:00 p.m. this evening. Finally! At least we know it exists. PDI tomorrow and walk-through at 3:30 p.m. Junk transfer starting sometime after that. Braking system and battery/inverter upgrade early next week.

Richard

P.S.  I brought home about eight inches of manuals to start reviewing.

Wow!  Congratulations Richard and Linda.  I remember you two were in Quartzsite cheering for us when we brought our new 1995 Bounder into the La Posa site.  So now we're cheering for you from far away Oregon!  Enjoy!  You deserve it!

So many activities so many things to say!  Introductions were made of new comers (Jim Logan's brother and wife) .  Sorry brain fade on names.   I think another rig  came in too  but alas I did not  get  their names. Frank and Barb arrived today.  I did recall their names. I watched for Tim and Marsha all day and Beth and Kerry but we did not see  them arrive.  Phoned, left messages, no  info yet. 

 First, if the deal is done, congrats to Richard and Linda on new rig.  Still waiting for YOUR official post on the topic!

 Second this was the day of the Luau. Yes Bob B you had the wrong day to bring a dry camp  tip.  But if you dress in an Hawaiian shirt for next happy hour, you will match my husband who missed the  Hawaiian shirt I had set outside for him.   The  full array of poo poos set outside for  appetizers were wonderful but my hubby still required a meal .  My favorite things to eat outside were  Henry's soda cracker specials and the meatballs!
We retreated to our rigs  for evening  meals and  then I  reported to Chris and Mimi's rig a for a second (or is it third?)  annual Mexican train game. Pat D.  came with her Florida rules! Since neither  Chris nor Mimi could recall  rules we last played, Pat 's rules prevailed!   Many laughs later and  lots of rejection of friendships and  foul words, we had to  declare Mimi the winner!  I came in second, Pat was third and Chris was the biggest loser but.... he pours a wonderful wine so  I want him to have my second place!  Marsha where were you?

Do you wish you were here?

Seeing all those photos sure makes us wish we were there. So many old friends, so many folks we haven't met, and so many folks into the luau theme - Hawaiian shirts, leis, coconut bra, and a mumu. Had we been there, I'd have brought out the uke and we'd have had a singalong. Maybe someone would have hula danced for us  ???
