New sub-club: Snail Tribe

I just learned that the Chinese call RV people the "snail tribe" because they carry their homes on their backs. I like it. I'm actually amazed that there is RV activity in China--(I must get the phone number of that phone booth I've obviously been living in).

I declare myself USA member #1 of Snail Tribe, International. Rules to follow soon, something on the order of 4CU's rules.

Zep

As long as you don't have to be ethnic Chinese, I'll join. As far back as I can trace my ancestry, not a single one of us has died in the same town we were born in; I come from a long line of wanderers.

Being a snail could present a problem during the winter when the roads are salted...

I'll join, though primarily because we move from place to place at the pace of a snail.

Sprouty has already appropriated the nickname "The Snail" for his Argosy, but the name "Escargot" is still up for grabs. Or "S-cargo" if you like.

We refer to ourselves as turtles sometimes.

Its a little slimy right now I was thinking about "The Slug" but it is about the color of a snail and the slime will be goone in short order.

I thought about it, but Zeppelinium is my second name, so I wouldn't want to be a 3-time loser. I'll stick with Zep.
