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.

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

Steve and Sharyl, This is a very hard time for the both of you. I know it is very hard. We have gone through this and while we were on vacation our daughter had to put a horse down that we have had for 24 years. May you be Blessed and have the knowledge that Fritz is not hurting and is playing and waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

It was nice to see all the folks that came to the 10th Anniversary Rally Gathering. It had been quite a while since we had seen some of them. Gregg and Tonya, Leslie and Manny was super to see you all. It had been years.:( We had some fairly heavy rain on the way home and some stiff wind but made it home around 3:30 after stopping for a sandwich. Hope you all made it home safely. I will bet pictures posted ASAP. Happy Birthday MOM (Lil)

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

Good Afternoon FOOFs, We have been in Amish country in southern Ohio since Wednesday. Like the area but Wednesday night we had a bad wind and rainstorm which knocked out all the electricity for a couple of hours. Lori and I just spent the time using the light over the sink. Yesterday we went to some of the areas wandering and found an Amish scratch and dent store just enjoyed the area. Today we hit some of the stores and got some Amish Cheese and bake goods. Tonights feast is going to be at the Amish Door Restaurant.(excellent food). We are at Evergreen RV Resort in the heart of Amish at the 10th Anniversary of the Ohio Rally Group. This is a camping group that was started by one person asking if anyone would like to get together and have some weekend rallys. You really do find some really great folks via the internet. It started with about 10 campers and I have seen rallys where there were almost 100 people attending. Just think, if it would not have been for the internet, we wouldn't have been blessed with the friendship of Richard and Sue and all of the FOOF's we have been allowed to meet. Hope all have a safe weekend and those who are traveling Keep Safe and hope to see a bunch of you in October at the Old Fella Rally.

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

Pickles finally got her new ride. http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/s373/Dan5714/image.jpg2_zpsfxn36ton.jpg Congrats to the Tool Guy Family. It looks very nice and hopefully it will give you many miles of trouble free towing. Is it also a Duramax/Allison? I think the GMC is a step up from the Chevy.

http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s211/Levi449/1973%20Lincoln%20Presidential_zpsczdejt0d.jpg This is what the finished product will look like. My Lincoln has only 60,000 miles and was a one owner. I thought your Lincoln was the white one. The 73 will bring a good amount of $$ for you to get a small car for around town driving. Maybe a Smart Car? :B:B Don't forget we are between you all and Michigan. The girls are doing well. Mike from Springfield is here for a visit and for the upcoming Police Week. Enjoying seeing him. Everyone have a great rest of the week.

RE: The Death of The Samboree?!

Thanks for your comments! One of the challenges many of our chapter members have voiced to us over the last several years is “to help us get new and younger members into the club”. At an annual meeting of the Good Sam Club Regional Directors we brought this challenge to the regional directors. Each of these 9 regional directors are long-standing chapter members and most of them are former state or provincial directors. As we were discussing how we might be able to help chapter members attract younger families at the samborees, it was brought to our attention that a lot of people don’t really know what the term “ Samboree” means – unless they have attended one. It was decided at this meeting that each of the regional directors would poll the state/provincial directors and ask them how they would feel about possibly changing the name of Samboree. The overwhelming response was that they would like to try changing the name Samboree to Good Sam RV Rally (Samboree). Of course, the state or province name would be in the title as well. For example: The Kentucky Good Sam RV Rally (Samboree). The goal was to begin introducing this in 2016. If you would like to voice your concern regarding the name change or have any other ideas, I strongly encourage you to make you voice heard. Please reach out to your state/provincial/regional director so that your opinion can be registered. You can find a listing of all state directors on the chapters web site at www.GoodSamClub.com/chapters. You may also reach out to me directly at the email address listed below. Stacey Rabung staceyrabung@goodsamfamily.org Manager, Club Support and Marketing Camping World and Good Sam Stacey, My wife and I attended the National Rally in Albuquerque a few years back and unfortunately that was the worst planned Rally. You had to prepay for a fresh water fillup as well as a dump which would have been fine if they would have done it. We had to be out by Tuesday and our friends and us ran out of water on Saturday and they never came around to give us our prepaid fill even after passing the request along to the organizers.Our Friends were the first Camper of the Year folks and they were treated no better. You had to stand outside in inclement weather to wait on busses to take you over 5 miles downtown to look at the new equipment and "trinkets and trash". We traveled a long way to have this kind of "enjoyment" Figured if this was the way the National Rally was going to be operated then there would be no National Rally in the future so I guess it is a moot point what you are going to name it. I must give a great shoutout to the Georgia State Rally. This was by far the most organized and enjoyable Good Sam Rally we have ever been to.

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

We are leaving Saturday, heading out to Branson for a week, then a long loop up thru South Dakota and back down thru Colorado. A little over a months trip. A little concerned about my 15 yr. old Oreo, but it would kill her to be left as well. Looking forward to the Rally in October as well. Be Careful, Stay Safe and make sure you have a big load of Fun.
