I've been gone too long

Brothers of the Benz, All
The Spiderman has been ill and will be departing from MB activities.
He and Joan will return to part/full time RVing.
We plan on towing a smaller vehicle behind Happy Trails,(H.T.) our Motorhome.
Our beloved 1987 300E,"Donka", will be put on the auction block.
We have spent many thousands of dollars this year, restoring him.
For those who are interested, contact me at my e-mail address and I'll provide you with a summary of those items.
He will go to the highest offer over $1.00 US Funds.
Happy Trails beep beep from The Spiderman in houston!!!

Just because you intend to sell the Benz, doesn't mean you can't stop by and visit the board. We've been missing you and several have searched for you, as you undoubtedly know by now. We all do enjoy your commentary .

Now on the other hand, since you are absolutely set on selling "Donka" to the highest bidder over $1.00 US, I will gladly double Sr. Hidalgo's offer, and allow you to deliver him to me in San Antonio next week (I'd much rather tool in a Benz than a POS Rental Lumina) .

Hopefully you haven't had to visit my friends (our friends that is) at Houston N.W. lately.

Take care, enjoy the travels and don't be a stranger.

Donald Buddy, Glad to hear you are getting better.

We have all missed you here and your input.

It is sad to hear that you are selling your benz.

Please give me a buzz if you are ever in Los Angeles with your RV. Are you planning on RV'ing all ove the U.S.? Imagine the tremendous feat you could have meeting up with every MB Shop member on the site that lives in the U.S/Canada!!

Imagine the photos page we could put together with that. The Spiderman crawls the globe looking for MBshop members. I can see the headlines now...

Good luck on your journey's with the RV, be sure to stay in touch.

Donald - was this one of the GM's that you were involved with during the engineering back when you were with them? I thought about you when I took this picture during the Thanksgiving Rod Run to Daytona Beach this past weekend.
