I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Just wondering if this has anything to do with RVing, at least in my lifetime.

Sure it does. You should start a business installing skids on campers in place of the wheels. Up there in Michigan you need to be prepared for the next ice age. Or the continuation of this one... Be prepared. You don't want to be the caveman they are removing from the ice in 3 million years.

When the earth was formed it was hot and dinosauers roamed the earth. Then it got cold and we had the Wolly Mammoth. Then it started to warm up again. It is a cycle. Yes the glaciers are melting faster because they are smaller. Try this experiment. Take a hug pile of snow and a small pile of snow. Both are in the sun. Which one will melt faster? The small one. Same with glaciers.

Ah not quite, if the earth's history was represented by a 4500 page book, dinosaurs don't show up until page 4270 and vanish, not counting birds on page 4430. Mammoths arrive around page 4997. Humans arrive in prototype form around the same time. Most of that book is unknown to us, we know a little about the last 500 pages and very spotty information about the pages before that.

Actually, it does. One has to wonder with all the doom and gloom forecasts of the demise of glaciers if people panicked and flocked to them to see them "just in case".

I almost agreed with you until you got to page 4997 of a 4500 page book... Is that a prequel to the sequel or the other way around?

ROFLMAO......I would assume the Mammoths will be back in volume 2. Tasty Mammoths. Imagine the size of the Porterhouse cut.
