Meet Sweet Tea. Being from the South, and taking into account how gorgeous this tear is, the name just seems right....BTW..she is a work in progress & we hope to be done by the 1st week in June for Family vacation 8)

We did not name our teardrop originally, but since we got it we have taken a number of adventures that we would have never considered in the 5th wheel we had before. So we named it "Miss Guided."

Beautiful teardrop, perfect name. Good luck on meeting your completion date and I hope you have a wonderful camping season. People are going to be knocking on your door wanting tours though, so be prepared.

Love the creativity. :thumbsup:

1. We like naps under the pines in our cozy TD.
2. Duke is a guitar player, and was in his share of rock bands back in the day. (Sy and the Sledge-o-Matics, anyone?) LOL.
3. We like rock music from our 'glory days'. If we ever had such things.
4. OurTD is a bit hot rod inspired.

So, our TD is the ZZ Drop. (As in catching ZZZZZ's and ZZ Top.)

I refer to it as "the cramper" or the "Dutch Oven" for obvious reasons! :oops:

We named ours "The Blue Guppy" Growing up we used to travel between CA and MO because of my dad's work. We took the Mother Road when it was her hayday and loved it as kids. I took my family on it this last summer to go back and visit my Pop, I shared all our stories and described all the great places and how it used to be. It was sad to see what was left but great to share it with my family. One of my favorite stops was the Blue Whale and I can remember when we could swim in the pond. Well when we returned and chose Route 66 as our theme my husband said it is too small to call the Blue Whale..... it is more guppy size. LOL It stuck and Mr. Limpet is our mascot on the logo we created.
Someday, we will learn to take living in stride. Sometime, we will learn to pay less attention to the imagined and stop fussing about things we had nothing to do with in the past - and cannot change significantly in the future. Very soon, we will sit together in the sun a whole day and just be happy that we can sit together in the sun all day and just be happy.

"Redneck Teepee".....It made me think of when the American Indian would strap the teepee poles along side their ponys and tie the skins between them to drag everything between winter and summer camps,.... I'm a redneck and I drag the teardrop between camps! :)
I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction, the world will have a generation of idiot's.

"Wanderin' Aimlessly" - I came up with it enroute to the Dam gathering last year - a 650 mile drive from my house here in Washington that ended up being over 900 miles by the time I got there. When I got my driver's license at 16 years ago, my mom always accused me of coming home by way of Seattle - Canada - whatever way was longest when heading home from work at my dad's gas station (which was only about a 15 mile drive) along with thinking of a friend who passed away a few years back who always called the late nite back road cruise's as "driving aimlessly". Came up of 3 different names, 'Driving Aimlessly', 'Meandering Aimlessly' and settled on "Wanderin' Aimlessly"

Growing up in the Arizona Sonoran Desert, I heard of old prospectors being called a Desert Rat ... Because I love the Arizona Desert (from its sagebrush flats to its mountain peaks), I just picked that up and added "The Arizona" to the front of it ... The Arizona Desert Rat 8)
