Title: MaRVey is Marvelous!
Post by: panthercity on September 09, 2017, 03:54:43 PM
 :))
Taking the Long Way home! Spent three peaceful days at Trinidad Lake State Park in Colorado. We picked up our beautiful 2018 Phantom on 9/30/2017 and started our 2000+ mile shakedown cruise home.

It looks so nice and clean and purty!  Hope you enjoy it for many miles.

Really? You picked it up on 9/30/2018.... Next year. LOL
Please don't make time pass faster than it already is. I'm getting old too fast.

Thanks folks. We're home now and she's not so clean. We brought most of the bugs in the midwest home with us. That'll change later this week.

PS: I always have trouble with dates. And Anna has told me to quit!

We love the full-body paint. They have a variety of designs with an abundant choice of colors.

Looks like she has plenty of power - what chassis is that?

Nice coach - congrats!

Nice coach.  I love all of the Certs in your signature. 

I am certified in most of those.  I actual fixed a broken throttle cable with a piece of rusty wire I found on the shoulder of the road where I broke down.

Sounds vaguely familiar. Broke a throttle cable on a trip. Sunsetting. Middle of nowhere. Cut the cable housing a couple of inches below the break. Crimped the frayed end to a zip-tie loop. Pulled it by hand.

Not as smooth as normal, but I'm not still standing there wondering what to do.   ;D

Nice looking rig!!  How did you like Trinity SP?  Was the water at a good level for boating?  Drove through there once and said I should camp there, but haven't done it yet.

Glad you said that Rene, I thought it looked terrible too but didn't want to say anything.

We love Trinidad SP and Pueblo SP both. We've been camping up there for several years now.
Sorry, we're not boaters, but there were a lot of them there.

To each their own. Fascinating lady with her own sense of style.
Remember, beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

That's why it doesn't look beautiful to me, I never hold beer.

I like it. It reminds me of a Peter Maxx poster. The ones that you colored in with the markers that came with the poster.

Thanks! I knew I recognized that style but I couldn't remember from where. (Bad case of CRS)
