I made it home yesterday evening. Spent the last couple of hours on the road in typical desert thunderstorms, but they weren't a problem. I did blow a trailer tire just west of Willcox AZ (Good Sam Road Service!) and it looks like I'll have to have the transmission rebuilt again. At the Border Patrol check outside of El Paso it started getting squirrelly. 62,000+ miles ago the mechanic said, "This rebuild will only last about 25,000 miles, but you won't keep the truck that long anyway because it already has over 100K on it." Hoping to get another 62K miles out of the next rebuild. Other than that, the trip home was pretty harmless. So glad I got to be at the Rally and see y'all in person!!! Thanks for being tremendously fun people. Love y'all.

Hello all, just checking in with you from Benson AZ. First time I've been online since I left Sevierville on Mon. morning. Have had a perfectly decent trip until yesterday when everything decided to go wrong on the same day. Decided to spend Sunday resting up and working in Benson so I can hit the road on a weekday - in case of further mechanical issues. I'll let you know when I get home. IF no more problems I'll be in Vegas tomorrow (Monday) night. If not .... I'll be somewhere else :-) Glad to hear you're all still having fun up there. Hugs to ALL of you FOOFs. Hopefully you can still schedule rallies, maybe somewhere near Richard's place. Good luck with the MH, Richard, and safe travels everybody!

Hope Doug and Sandy are traveling safely. I was lucky enough to win the gorgeous picture of the Golden at auction. When you have a minute, would you please PM me her name and years? I'll pencil them on the back of the picture. Thanks so much for donating so much beauty to the Old Fella auction.

I'm on the road with Amroth, my trusty co-pilot. He hopes to be inducted into the DOTL when Garland arrives. Hopefully arriving Nashville tomorrow and will see you on schedule. Travel safely!

Marsden Haven't seen you since Albuquerque. It will be great to see you again. I can't wait to hit the road! Happily planning route. I bought a sewer donut because I see it's required. Someone will have to show me what to do with it. ;) Just so you remember me: That's me in the grubby field jacket. I'll have the same jacket, different dog. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=183786330440&l=ef947bb094

RE: Do you stand for the National Anthem?

I stand for everybody's national anthem. When I know the words, I sing along. It's polite. I put my hand over my heart for ours. I'm proud to be an American, proud of our country, our flag and our anthem.

RE: Campground (NOT 'Resort') near Scottsdale AZ please

Thank you everybody! I scouted out McDowell Mountain Park and we have reservations there for the horse show. See you on the road soon.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hope those of you who are having troubles are working through them successfully. You have my prayerful support. Looking forward to seeing several of you at the Rally.

I'm all registered, I think I'm in 214 just across from y'all. Now, what activities should I be prepared for? Are we riding a train (do you need me to research that for you?)? Going anywhere fun? What are we doing about church? Can't wait!
Dernhelm 09/18/16 08:13am Rallies, Shows and Gatherings

Currently I am looking for some kind of trip we can all make like a train ride through the Smoky Mountains. I will let you know what I find. My trusty Tourist Trains Guide says there are "nearby" trains in Jackson, Chattanooga, Oak Ridge and Nashville. Sounds fun!

I GET TO GO!!! Can't wait. Do you think they still have space for me?

Hello FOOFs! Have always enjoyed lurking on this thread. Hope you're all well or getting better. Richard, I hope your furbabies are doing ok. Thanks for keeping up the thread and the good work.

Campground (NOT 'Resort') near Scottsdale AZ please

Hi folks! I need a place to stay in or around Scottsdale AZ next Presidents Day Weekend. We have a small hybrid (expandable) trailer. Our ideal campground has full hookups, trees and decent-sized sites. Need showers too. We don't need "resort" amenities and are hoping to not have to pay snowbird resort fees. Just looking for a quiet place to stay for 3 or 4 nights for the horse show. Can anyone recommend a place? Thanks for your help!

RE: Getting ready to go

Of course you know when you take out the left handed screwdriver and hammer set, the next time you hit the road, you'll probably need em. Grumpy At our very first night's camp, we were too far from the electrical and had to borrow a 30A extension cord. :S Other than that, it was a GREAT trip.

Getting ready to go

Leaving for first vacation in way too long with DH soon. Since I'm taking DH and the two big Goldens, I'll have an extra 300# of, um, Beloved Companions along. Just went through the rig and pulled out ALL of the non-essentials, including my tea-maker and toaster. WAH! Some of the games. Some of the pots and pans. It came to a surprising number of pounds when you include the extra 15' 30Amp cord, the extra hoses and most of the books - do I really need 3 Good Sam directories in the trailer? Maybe now I'll be able to make it up the hills!

RE: Camping 101

I think the comfort of our rig is inversely related to how rough our earliest campsites were. From rice paddies to tents through the uncovered bed of a pickup truck - suddenly owning a travel trailer or even a Class A makes perfect sense. And if it gets you outside, it's "camping."
