Actually I think the topic should be relabeled: "The flat-Earth conspiracy is spreading across the world".

Obviously you've never watched professional "wrestling" and seen the rabid fan base, some of whom are convinced it's real.

As written by Alexandre Dumas: "One thing that humbles me deeply is to see that human genius has its limits while human stupidity does not."

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.

if the earth is round and rotating at 25,000 mph why doest it take so long to get anywhere? Jump up and about 100 miles shouldwhi by before you feet hit the grond again. [emoticon]

Go high enough and that will happen.

Hmm, I just reread that post, and feel the need to point out that the earth rotates at about 1,000 mph at sea level at the equator. However it does travel 67,000 mph on its orbital path relative to the sun.

The world's fastest motor home does circle the globe frequently. IN fact it can cross from one side of our thousands of miles wide country to the other in a matter of minutes...

Dually? Would that be considered boondocking? I've heard the mileage is fantastic too.

You guys have it all wrong as I have been there...Yes to the end...

We couldn't have done it without the fuel additive and air tabs on the boat...

We were cruising at a good clip, following seas, tooted the horn for the passing lane as we went by the RV. Friendly folks waving at us and they politely moved over to the right to allow us around them.

Too fast and the captain didn't change the brake fluid so we couldn't stop as we approached what could only be described as an infinity pool ending.

We were all hoping to die as our grandfather did in his sleep and not screaming and crying like the passengers in his car, however some did lose control of bodily functions (yes, it was me...)

Thought that we were goners!

It was actually like a conveyor belt! Yes, we found the short cut to the Orient!

When we arrived back stateside, we had only used 1/2 tank of fuel! This was no doubt due to the fuel additive and air tabs!


Inquiring minds want to know...

Yeah about 1000mph. it just seems the days are getting shorter. A 1 hr day would be pretty hectic.
