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

The Old Fella Rally is going good. The raffle for the donations went really good for the attendance. We raised over $1000. Since the Rescue thought they had enough money, this years donation will be going to a Rescue in Houston as it got slammed by the hurricane. It's raining here and is supposed to most of the day so guess will work on the inside of the camper. Hope all are healthy and happy and God Bless

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

Good morning everyone. Things here at home are as about as well as they can be right now. At this point I really don't know what say about Sue except she is pretty much the same. It seems there is more to this bump in the road than expected. It has become personal and not to be shared on the thread. Keep us in your prayers. I wish you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Very understandable, our thoughts and prayers are with you and Sue and hope she gets well soon. Times 2

RE: 5th wheel landing gear and etrailer

I called Etrailer and ordered new 5er hitch. For free shipping said it could be 7to 10 days. I told them no problem. I had it in 2 days not including order day.

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

Richard sure hope Hobo is OK and nothing seriously wrong. I just purchased another Rand McNally RVND 7 GPS yesterday. It is similar to the one I have now RVND 7710. The 7710 was flickering on the way home from Maine. So I am a little worried it maybe going out. I do have the GPS in the dash of the truck. But I prefer a RV GPS when towing the 5er. Richard, the Rand McNally has a 7" screen which makes it easier to see. You also can get a shade to clip on the unit that helps block out the sun.

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

Gary/ take a look at the Rand McNally 7700 series for RVs. Nice unit, lets you put in assorted roads, you want to run or stay off of,fuel service and comes with restaurants, fuel places, camp grounds. We have 2 and they never let us down. Enjoy the east side.

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

My oldest sister's husband passed away suddenly yesterday. They have been married over 50 years. Please pray for her and the family. He is the 3rd member of our family to pass in the last 12 months. Prayers and sympathy to you and Patty and the rest of the family that God will be with you during this time of grief.

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

This is off the topic but I thought it was pretty awesome. Pro Football Player JJ Watt( Houston Texans player) wanted to raise $200,000 for the relief effort. So far his his fund has raised $11,000,000 for the disaster relief. Sending a donation to a animal rescue effort in Texas sounds like a good idea. I would vote for that.

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

Thought I would tell everyone that I talked to Charles yesterday. He said they are doing fine, have food, medicine,electricity and water is still over 100' from the house. . He did say that they had a tornado go over the house but never touched down. He had put some pictures on Facebook showing the dam on part of his property and the bridge. If the dam breaks and washes out the bridge then there are about 20 families including him that would be unable to get out.Charles did say that before building their home they had about 150 loads of dirt from the parimeter of the property and built about a 15'high hill and put the home on top of that since they live in a valley. God is watching over Charlotte and Charles. If I remember what he said they had around 28" of rain in about 8-10 hours. This is worse than the 500 yer flood but they don't know what to call it as this has never been the case before. Sorry if i messed this up too bad Charles.:D

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

Scottiemom, we are praying with you. All the dogs are well but Charlotte is going back to the doctor today, with more visits from this in the near future. So tired of doctors, but I guess it is good we can go. Well, we were just put in a tropical storm watch. The path of the storm shows going right over my house with a possible 15+ inches of rain. Hope our dam and road hold, it has never been tested with over 10 inches. It is going to be an interesting weekend. Everyone take care. Hope the possible rainfall is very limited. Praying that Charlotte will get relief and hoping for the best for her. Our weather is really goofy. Forecast showing highs in the 60's and in the mid to upper 40's at night for the upcoming weekend and next week. I am trying to figure when Summer is going to be here. We ordered new window blinds for the main part of the 5er and they are to be here Friday and Saturday so I know what we will be doing this weekend.

RE: 5W vs. Bumper Pull

I have a 2500 Ram, CC, LB, 5.7 Hemi... tow almost 10,000 and this is the most I would want to tow with that vehicle. Just me and my cocker spaniel. 31'FW. 2013 Ram with towing package. With the children, IMO, I would look at a Bunk House or a Toy Hauler for the extra space. Making up a dinette or sofa each night and morning would be a hassle for SWMBO... or even if you do that job, still a chore. My preference is a FW over a travel trailer, but we each have our own preferences. Good Luck. Edited by Barb I towed a 34'5er for over 5 years with a Quad cab LB 5.7 Hemi and did not encounter problems in 20,000 miles Your CTD should be fine with the 10000 GVWR

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

He said they were going to Cherokee this weekend. Maybe they don't have internet access. They are in Cherokee. Richard tried to call me this evening and he was having trouble with phone service there.It wouldn't stay long enough to get more than a couple words between everything leaving.

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

The Old Fella Rally is just over 10 weeks away. I do hope you all will consider making a real effort to make this Rally as it will probably be the last one. Mary would love to see you again as it has been so long. Kansas City Sue We haven't seen you since the rally was over a hundred miles from home. Folks it is time to really show your dedication to the effort that has been done over the last 11 years. This would be a great way to show Richard and Sue a great sendoff and for the dedication they have put in to the effort. So far there are only 5 or 6 signed up to attend. We can do better than that I would dearly hope.I am now off my soap box.

3 days and no posts? I think I'm going into withdrawal :W Dash, Sue and Richard are at our house, They left Michigan this morning.

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

We got 2 1/2" of rain over the night in addition to the 2 1/2" we got over the last 3 days. There are folks that got over 4" last night.The water running out of the the field going to the ditch is strong enough it is pushing water into our barn and has the pasture flooded. Hopefully it can drain a lot of water out before we get more rain.

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

Howdy everyone. We got in yesterday and set up camp in John's front yard. I went to hook up the power to the camper and discovered the new 30amp service was wrong. There was 220 volts coming out of the new 30amp plug. This morning the electrician came out and corrected the error. Sue and I went out this morning to Walmart and then went to a burger place called Bagger Daves's Burger Tavern. I had a large hamburger while Sue got a super salad, it was good. We then went to Camping World to get a twenty five foot 50 amp extension cord, but they were sold out so Sue bought one on line. We are now running off 30amps because my 50amp was long enough to reach the power box. It is almost ninety degrees here today, I guess we brought the hot weather with us:D John has a nice big boat. It's about 33 feet long made for the big water in the Great Lakes. He and Sandra have planned to take us Friday for a ride. Hope it has a bathroom. You know old men have to pee.:D Okay I am going to close for now. Have a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Richard, check with a Wal-Mart I think they carry30 and 50 amp cables. Check your phone. I sent you a message probably 3 days ago.:) I will get with you before you leave Michigan and try to figure out the best way to get here. They have I 75 in Findlay all screwed up. Glad you made it safe and easy.

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

Richard, my trailer will never cool with one ac when it is 90 degrees outside. Almost all of the newer trailers only have the two ducts for intake and I do believe that is a big issue with mine as well. It is in the 90's every day here now with about 80 percent humidity, and it only drops to 78 or 79 at night. Me and the dogs like to just hang out in the ac at this time of year. Looks like our trip to the cool mountains is off, was looking forward to that. Everyone keep your dogs cool and stay safe. There are many state parks around us that only have 30amp receptacles so it is very uncomfortable during the heat of the day when it is 85 degrees inside the camper. I bought an adapter that plugs into a 30amp service that also has a wire with a plug for a 20amp house whole socket which when plug in will give me 40amps. That way I can run both A/C's and stay cool. I only have 1 AC. The last week it had been in the uppeer 70's and lower to mid 80's. Set a fan in the bedroom and has it pointing toward the living area and was fine. Had the AC set on 74 and sometimes 72. The week went great and when we got home I wanted to get the yard mowed and in doing so Ducked under an apple tree and didn't get quite far enough and top of head raked one of the limbs. Now I have 10 staples where once was alright. Got back home and finished mowing. Fast forward to this morning. Heard thunder for about 30 second solid then heavy rain containing balls of sleet just a little smaller than a dime. Right now it is 68* Camped last week up by Lake Erie. Friends had a boat and over 2 days fish count for the boat was 250 perch.

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

Hey Burch, We are going to be visiting the Kennedy Space Center next March. I have been looking at the Manatee Hammock Campground. Have you ever been there, and if so what do you think of it?:@ I have never stayed at Manatee Hammock Campground. Anytime we are in this area, we always stay at Jetty Park because my wife really likes the water. Kennedy Space Center is only about 20 -25 minutes from Jetty Park. I don't know if you have ever been there to the space center before but it is really neat. Make sure you take the bus tour to the hanger where they have a complete Saturn V rocket. The thing makes the space shuttle look small! Walter, We have been to Kennedy Space Center a few years back and loved it. As Metal Gator said you can get a bus tour. It is on Merritt Island which is a nature preserve. You drive around it at at 5-10 MPH it will take you around 1 1/2 or so. Very interesting. If things work out we may try to meet you down there. See you in October.

Walter and Garland,You have our deepest sympathy. Losing a fur pal is not easy. I remember what it was like when Sarah left for the Bridge. Just know that she is not hurting and is having a great time with Fella,Sarah and all the rest waiting at the Bridge.
