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

Old Fella Rescue had a productive meeting with the Commissioners yesterday, that according to members of Old Fella. Lets hope this will turn into help to rescue the stray animals of Burke County. Richard, I am assuming that the donated land is no longer in the cards since nothing was built on the property? Burch, Unless I am mistaken there was a time limit on the property to build. If nothing happened, then it reverted back to the donor. I think that was over a year ago. Hopefully the reminder by the Augusta TV station and the fact that a levy was voted on many years ago that it will spur the powers that be to do something about financing.

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

The heat and humidity have been stifling here. Yesterday, the heat index (feels like) got to 105 in Philly. Today will be another scorcher, maybe not quite as bad. A front is coming through tomorrow, and relief is expected by Wednesday. I got the results of my latest PET scan today. As some of you know, I have been diagnosed twice with melanoma, the last time at the end of '13. The scan was clear (at least as clear as any would be at my age). I remain cancer-free. Great news Gary Glad to read this Gary. Our neighbor is going through Chemo for post op lung cancer surgery. Will be so glad to see you in October.

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

Good Afternoon, Things around us are just a touch warm. We are to top out at +90 with a heat index over 100. If so it will be the first day of 90+ for the season. I let our horse out earlier today while mowing the lawn but as it got closer to the noon time, he was put back in. We have 3 fans going in the barn with 2 pointed directly in his stall. Anna and Sarah visited the "Beauty Shop" Thursday. Sarah was shedding by the bucket fulls and got a good bath. She looks good and seems to have stopped shedding. Anna also got a good bath and a trim up. She is so silky soft. The groomer left her tail long but smoothed up the rest. If Lori has any Honey Doo's outside it will have to wait until after the heat drops. Richard, did that chap buy the '73 or you having too much fun you haven't told him it is done? :B Hope all you FOOF's have a good afternoon and stay cool.

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

"Why can't these people put their efforts into good honest work. If they did just think about how many more businesses and jobs there would be." Dan are you talking about Richards phone call or the government in general? :) I hate getting those calls where someone calls you on an unknown number and has such a foreign accent you can't understand. Sure wish some of these companies would use American locations for their info center.

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

It is 90 degrees and we have no A/C in the house. Doesn't the AC on the other end work independent of the one that quit? Bummer if not. I believe you know the folks that have a couple of very inexpensive campsites. Hope you get it fixed quickly. Glad you made it safe.

We're home. Took 421 outside Indianapolis down to Frankfort, Kentucky, miss all the bad roads with construction. Easy trip home Glad you found an easy way home. Next time you go to Michigan you will know the route to take.

RE: Montana vs Open Range

Montana has been the #1 seller in it's class for 14 years running. At least that's what Keystone says. I suppose that says something. Not sure what, but I guess there's a reason they sell more than anyone else. Bang for the buck? Floor plans? Randy Graber who started Open Range came from Keystone and went out on his own. Also Jayco bought Open Range although OR is still a stand alone company.

RE: Montana vs Open Range

Thanks for all the replies! Looks like Open Range over Montana about 10-2. Let me throw in my 2 cents worth. We bought our Open Range in May of 2008. Took the maiden voyage in June of '08. Since then we have probably put over 35000 miles on it. Did have a few problems but considering ours was only the 162nd one they built I still feel good about them. They are in the 19,000 units now. The factory fo9lks are excellent to deal with if needed. FYI Open Rang is still a stand alone company but is now owned by Jayco. Randy Graber who started Open Range is still there. If you call them or go to the website it is called Highland Ridge dba Open Range. They also offer many more models now than when we got ours. Good Luck on your decision. Even though we had a few problems I would not hesitate to buy another one.

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

We totally understand. We avoid road construction when ever possible ,even driving many miles to avoid. It is a much better and safer trip to keep moving. The rough roads may have been the reason for the tire failure on the truck. Wouldn't they give you any warranty on the tire? You definitely don't want the road from Toledo to Findlay. I have not really worried too much about Dayton as even in construction normally you still have 2-3 lanes. Cinci not sure of at this time. All I can say is I have never taken the bypass around but that would be an option. If you would decide to go 75, you can take 69 south to Ft.Wayne then across Route 30 to I-75 with no stops. If you would decide to try that, we could meet you at 30/75 intersection where there are 2 big truck stops.

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

I HOPE YOUR TRAILER DOESNT BOG DOWN IN THE MUD////////// The camper is on a concrete pad. The pad is narrow so getting on the pad when the street is narrow is hard. We still have a dry camping pad, even though the rain from Friday to Sunday morning = 4" This weekend has been depressing. We lost our neighbor Thursday. He was 50. Also lost one of the long ago dispatchers from the PD. She lost her fight with cancer. I was so glad I went and spent some time with her a couple weeks ago. Neighbors Funeral tomorrow and the other is Wednesday. I hate visiting folks like this.

RE: Texas best suplimental health ins

We use AARP supplemental health insurance (underwritten by United Health Care). It's recognized, trusted, and understood by every provider everywhere in the U.S.. We went with it because we didn't want any hassles on RV trips regardless of where we were. We have this in Ohio. The best plan is "Plan F". So far we have had nothing out of pocket for doctor or hospital. Good Luck in your picks. We have had UHC for 2 years. Reference premium. I retired with a disability from Ohio Police and Fire and the premium for my wife and I is around $150/mo not including scripts.

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

Richard, your cars are beautiful! What size engines do the Lincoln's have? The 72 and the 73 has a 460 cubic inch V8 engine with a four barrel carburetor. Big enough to get the job done and then some. Richard, Have you made the phone call to the chap that said he would buy it when done? Time to see if money talks or gab,gab walks? It sure looks pretty.How about a pix of the inside? "If you are travelling I-75, there are some nice truck/ rv stops at exit 135 (Beaverdam) in Ohio. It has a Pilot, Flying J, and Speedway" Also about 35 miles north of that there are 2 big truck stops at the N. Baltimore exit. Just for FYI as I think you said going up Rt. 69 Don't Fret you will have a very enjoyable trip.

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

... We get our hitch installed in our new truck today...What hitch did ya end up getting? :@ I ended up going with the BW companion slider. My dealer did not carry the Husky so the BW was the next best thing. The forum has great reviews on both. I had the pull rite superglide before, I liked that hitch a lot. But after our ordeal with the break down. I thought going with a hitch I did not have to use a special capture plate I could offer assistance if some one broke down like I did. The hitch I got has a ball in the middle of the bed. When I pull the hitch I should be able to turn the ball around and have a full flat bed like no hitch was ever in there. If I understand toe concept, you can use the ball in the middle for gooseneck trailers and then put the 5th wheel hitch over that and lock it down. Is that right? If so, you can pull any type of trailer.

RE: A/C started making rough noises today. What should I check?

Depending on the AC model, you might check the distribution fan. The Carrier Air V have had problems and no parts available.

Dan, thanks for all the pictures!!! They are great and really show what this group is all about. FRIENDSHIP!!! It was so nice to see everyone at the rally. Is there a way you can post the link on Facebook in the camping buddies group. Thanks. Don't hold your breath but I will try. Can you send me an invite to the link as I must have lost it on this end.

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

Good morning everyone. Well for us retired folks there is the Saturday honey do list for us too. You see we put off all week those things needing to be done until the last minute so we can enjoy the do nothing days Monday through Friday. Sue will ask me every morning what I intend to do for the day. My reply is I am looking over the list of things that need to be done and I just haven't figured out yet what I am going to do first. So it takes me all day to figure what I am going to do first and by the time I decide it is too late in the day to start. Richard I like that answer. Sometimes when Patty asked me what I am doing for the day I just reply I am doing it. Which is nothing.Dan When Patty questions you about doing nothing, and she says you did nothing yesterday, just tell her you are not finished yet.:B:B

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

Welcome Burch and family to the longest running single topic thread in RV.Net history. I started reading the thread at the beginning and in 2006 became a real member as we have one of the first pups that Richard rescued from under the dumpster. We have Anna. We also have attended all of the Old Fella Rally except the first one and the one in Colorado. Fast forward a few years and Sarah joined our family. Sarah was the one hit and left laying along the road for dead. I can say that both are spoiled and in good health. It would be really great if you and the family could join us in the 10 year Rally being held in Sevierville Tenn in October and have some fellowship with some of the best folks I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. There will be folks from Ohio, Missouri, Indiana, Pennsylvania (transplant from Colorado) Virginia, Texas,S. Carolina, and hopefully others that I may have missed. Those who were at last years rally have already made the reservations for this year. Again WELCOME
