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

Good morning everyone. Charles it is about seven hundred and fifty miles to Caledonia, Michigan. The first day I plan to make it to Lexington, Kentucky, from there it depends on how far we can drive the next day before giving it up. There are not many places to stop once you get past Indianapolis so its almost a commitment to keep on going until we get to Caledonia. The trip home will be much easier as we plan to stop to visit Dan and Lori and then go to Wytheville, Va and stopping for the night and then drive home. The fur babies are doing well this morning. They are waiting on me to take them for a walk as Sue has gone for a doctor's appointment. So I better close for now and get ready to face the day. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Check out the directory. Lori found campgrounds on 65 in Indiana. If you have "Next Exit" they listed some and some in Elkhart/Middlebury. At first she just typed in Campgrounds on 65 in Indiana Should be more before. There are 5 before Indy.

Check the coax connection on the back of the TV. If it is loose that will also deter the loss of channels. Wouldn't it be nice if that is all it was?

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

We are finally going on our first trip of the year to Branson next week if all goes well. I though we were going to need to cancel yesterday but it worked out. This year has been a tough one, seems like one thing after another. I received a call from my brother Tuesday telling me he has been diagnosed with liver failure and not long to live. He is very tired and ready to go to Heaven. Every one take care and enjoy your trips. Be safe. Charles and Charlotte, So sorry to read about your brother. Our prayers are sent your way to you and the family that God will be with all involved and make the transition as painless as possible.You will see him again in the future and knowing that there is no more suffering.

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

It's always in the last place I don't look.It was not in the toolbox. I blame the tool gremlins. They're related to sock gremlins,but they wear belts and hang around Home Depot. I can tell you how to find it. Go buy a new one and the old one will show up. If it had an Atwood water heater, it does not use one.

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

We got home yesterday from Holmes County Amish area. Decided to go during the week and found traffic very easy to handle. Weather was excellent. Only had 2 glitches- TV antenna broke and the squirrel cage in the AC started making a racket. Wouldn't you know, Carrier doesn't make the model any more and parts are not to be found. It is the ducted Carrier Air V.It appears a new AC is in the near future. Going to have to find someone to install it and wire it. The unit has 1 remote which controls the AC and the furnace.

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

Welcome back Scottiemom and Shadow57 Weather here Amish Country has been good. Bright sunshine and nice temps. Possible chance of some gusty rain today. Quite windy at the time. This campgound is so well manicured. Yesterday there were a couple of gals sitting on the ground grooming all around the trees and the facilities as each site. Roads look like new tar and chipped. We are down in the bottom (where Old Fella Rally was). At the one end there is a large enclosure where a group of deer live. So neat to go watch them.Our friend Duane is here and we are going exploring today. Too bad tomorrow is going home day. Hope everyone is happy and healthy as can be expected. Stay safe.

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

Good Morning, We are in Amish Country (Berlin,Ohio)until Friday. It is in the 50's at present but is to go into the mid 70's later today. Tomorrow is to be in the 80's and sunshine with possible thunder storm tomorrow and 76 on Thursday. Both doggies are doing well. Our pilot friend Duane brought his camper down yesterday. He had a 7 AM flight and it is only 15 miles to the airport from here and over 40 from his home. He had to go south a ways to pick up his passengers and then go to Michigan north of Detroit. At 8:30 he sent a text that he was in Michigan before I got up. That was disgusting Lori and I are going out exploring today. Hope all have a good rest of the week.

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

Good Afternoon Jerry, It is a pleasure to have a new reader of the thread.The DW and I were fortunate to adopt the sister of Richard's Suzie. Of the 5 puppies rescued I have had the pleasure to have met 4 of them. We also had for 7 years another southern belle that Richard provided. Unfortunately she has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She was a yellow Lab that had been hit by a motor vehicle and left laying along the road for dead. When Richard and Sue got her she had teeth broken, dislocated hip, and many sutures in 3 out of 4 legs. Richard and Sue were presented this animal who spent the rest of the evening in their kitchen. They warmed towels tried to keep her from getting in any deeper shock. Said if she made it through the night we would take her to the vet. The rest is history at least for 7 yea . It had to be a better life than she was having along side the road. As others have said, all would love to meet you and greet you into the FOOF family. The campgrounds in Sevierville is a nice campgrounds and the owners are excellent. You can see the info on the camping thread. The actual rally is scheduled for a week and quite a few are staying the next week just to bum around and see some sights. Again Welcome and hope to see you at the rally.

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

Good Morning, Yesterday all the snow was gone and it got up to low 70's so I mowed the lawn. Only got stuck once. We are supposed to be in the low 70's today with rain coming in after supper. We are hoping to go camping the last week in April. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have not been able to go yet this year. Planning on meeting Dan and Patty and will stay a few days. Looking forward to October so we can see all the FOOF's. We hope all have a safe week ahead.

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

Richard, It sounds like you are going to experience some Ohio weather. The high today was around 46 and it id now 39. Weatherman calling for winds upwards of 50+ and maybe up to 3" of snow. Then this weekend it should be highs in the 70's and possibly as high as 80. I need to get the yard cleaned up so I can roll it and mow but the rain doesn't seem to cooperate. Hope everyone is doing well.

RE: 1st time 5th wheel owner sliding bar hitch question

Wow, thanks for all the responses! 5th is a 22' tahoe lite, 3600lbs, truck is long bed so don't need a slider. Think I'll just use the one it comes with to get it home, need/want to do a few mods to it, when I'm doing that I'll learn whats what with the 4 way tilts, check craigs list, etc. I don't mind rails in the truck, I'll put the hitch on and remove it as needed for use, I've been wrenching stuff for most of my life so its not a big deal for me. I took the hitch(no name on it but looks older than the 5th) off of a truck that is basically a carbon copy of mine shouldn't be too bad to mount it on mine(famous last words, right?). . Any recommendations on what brands to look for, I do not have unlimited funds for this? thanks again, Brian Calstar, If I am thinking right you are talking about the Reese Presidental Series hitch with a sliding bar to hold ball instead of jaws. I have had one of those since 2006 and have had no trouble with it. I just raise the trailer until you see a little space between the pinbox and the hitch and pull the release. The Reese is rated for 15,000# Hope this gives you some info from someone who has pulled with that hitch for 11 years. Happy Camping

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

Just got word from Dandy Dan that Jim's Mable passed away last night. Jim was devoted to her very deeply and I know he will miss her greatly. Mable is going to be buried in a plot that they have in a Military Cemetery in Sarasota. Florida. If anyone would like Jim's address, it is 2314 Glen Drive, Sebring,Fla. 33872

RE: Safety

I am retired on a disability from Law Enforcement and do have a Federal Permit that is governed by the US Code. I will carry while we are traveling on the road but don't once we get to the campground. I am required to qualify each year going through the same requirements as if I was still a fill timer. The only thing I question it the folks that pay some money to take a course and maybe use a 22 to qualify with then carry a higher powered piece. I definately feel you need to qualify yearly and only authorized to carry what you qualified with. I am uncomfortable with some folks who do not have to re apply every 5 years and not required to show instructor that you are able to carry instead of just paying $$ and be good for another 5 years. Sorry for the long post. I will get off my soapbox.If you have had to carry for an occupation you might have different feelings. I hope all have save travels and total enjoyment.

Sue and I are talking about trying again this year for Michigan. I know of a nice camping spot in the area if you are interested.:B

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

If you want it, it's yours, but how to get it to you?USPS or Fed EX or UPS would be the easiest..

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

Richard, we have a friend that has a Ford and had an extra tank installed in the bed. I believe he carries somewhere around 80+ gallons between the two tanks. His is set up with both tanks hooked together so it draws out of the big tank first then the stock tank. If interested I can try to get ahold of him and get the specifics. You wouldn't need to put that big a tank in. There are options that you could possibly have a tank put in the underside and have them hooked together. I did that many years ago.

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

Unfortunately the weatherman was right for the first part of this storm. We have about 4 inches of snow this morning. It is still snowing and it is supposed to continue until Wednesday. All in all they are estimated about 12 inches with winds at time gusting to 40 mph. Most of what we will get today and tomorrow is lake effect. Dan, we missed the bulk of the snow getting maybe 1-2". The wind is what is nasty again today making a 9* windchill. Wind is doing a fair job of trying to put snow out of the fields skimming across the roads. We had been forecast for more over the next 21 hours. Mother Nature must have a bee in her bonnet. March came in like a lion, just it goes out like a lamb. Hope you all are getting to feel better.
