RE: RV Salvage

I have been past their yard many times while visiting the Carthage area and always wanted to stop and tour the place. I used to dream about finding a project there and rebuilding it, but age and arthritis have caught up with me.

RE: Something just didn't look right...

I checked all around the framing and it was nice and dry, no sign of rot or mold. It has sit mostly covered with a tarp for almost a year, I think that helped a lot. I really should have noticed it earlier, looking at it every day, it finally registered with my brain.... I tell the grandkids I only have 3 brain cells left it takes me a while to catch on sometimes.....

Something just didn't look right...

We have had the little Hi-Lo about a year now, just used it once last fall and covered it up until about a month ago. It has sit beside the carport for a couple of weeks, and every time I looked at the side of the trailer, something looked out of place. Finally, Sunday afternoon my SNL and I were checking things over and it dawned on me that the metal vent plate for the rear of the fridge was installed upside down. That allowed rain to run down the side of the trailer and into the vent fins and behind the fiberglass siding. I pulled it off today, cleaned off the old putty and installed it with the fins down. When I took the panel off, it had stock stickers on it indicating it was bought from Camping World. The trailer was traded in to a Camping World dealership and I am guessing they replaced the original vent. It looks more right now......

RE: Had a good laugh this weekend

Crowe, she may be up in your area come Spring Break,2018. Not sure where exactly right now, all she knows is the Maine/New Hampshire area doing service work with her College.

Had a good laugh this weekend

Our Freshman in college granddaughter was home this weekend and was all excited about college life. She stays in a Dorm with three other girl "suite-mates". She said none of the girls wanted to clean the bathroom so she took the job. They have a Dorm inspection every week, so Grandma bought her one of those, "as seen on TV" rechargeable scrubbers with three different heads. She was beaming when she announced that the Dorm Inspector told her they had the cleanest shower in the whole Dorm!!! She couldn't have been prouder if she had made the Dean's List....

RE: Camping next weekend

Thanks for all the replies, sure am ready to go camping, rain or shine!!! Going and buying a propane firepit is a not in the picture, would probably not use it again. We will use the tabletop gas grill if need be. The forecast for the hurricane has changed some and the area may not get any rain at all, but we always manage to have a great time, no matter what the weather brings........

RE: Camping next weekend

Just watched the evening news and weatherman said we may be getting some rain Sunday/Monday depending on the path Hurricane Nate takes after it hits land. May have a bonfire after all!!!! ??????

RE: Camping next weekend

Camping next weekend

DW has had health issues since last winter and we have not been camping this year at all. A group from Church always go camping in the Fall at Petit Jean State Park and it is scheduled for next weekend. I went on the Park website to pick me out a campsite, and up popped a notice that there is a burn ban in effect and only gas or electric cooking units can be used for outdoor cooking and no wood campfires allowed at all. We always had a campfire on Saturday night so all the kids could make S'mores and cook hotdogs. Help us pray for some rain the next few days so they can lift the burn ban......????????

RE: looking for large scale road atlas

Try one of the large Truck Stops/Travel Centers, like Pilot or Loves or one of the others, they used to sell them, haven't looked for one in several years......

RE: Need info on HiLo trailers

We purchased a "very little used" 2008 model 19T last summer. We purchased the unit so we could return to the camping lifestyle after health reasons slowed us down several years ago. We use it for local trips in state and just for a few nights, but I would not hesitate making a two or three week trip with it at all. To me, storage space is a minor problem, but if you travel light, it is o.k. I did not let the thought of mechanical failure of the lift system deter me, it does have a manual override. Raising and lowering takes about 30 seconds, so roadside pit stops are no problem. I never thought about drilling or mounting anything to the roof. The A/C unit, antenna and two vents take up a lot of space on the roof, the bigger units should have more roof footage than the 19 footer. It tows very well, but I already had a F250 CC, V10 p/u, so did not notice any mpg drop or loss of power while towing... The new Hi-Lo Mfg. Only has a 18 foot model with two floodplains, and neither have a bathroom/shower, a downer for us.

RE: Medicare???

What trb46 said. My wife had to change ins. company when Medicare kicked in, her old ins. company with her previous employer would no longer cover her even as a secondary to Medicare. Call your ins. provider BEFORE any changes occur and see if you will still have any supplemental ins. with them.

RE: SPAM-a-lam-a-ding-dong

Spam. no lie, has saved my life!!! I have been eating Spam most of my 67 years. Fifteen years ago I started taking mission trips to Central America. Now if you have ever been to that part of the world you know that beans and rice is 90% of their diet, and I DO NOT eat beans or rice. In fact, I have started packing today for a trip to Belize, we leave early Friday morning. Along with clothes, I threw in five of the individual serving pouches of Spam. Lunch is usually on the go down there and Spam and a few crackers with a bottle of water makes a meal. The worst food I had served to me was in Nicaragua, and I sure was glad I had my Spam and jerky with me......

Heard a funny quote on the evening news last night

Local News Station airing a story about a local man who turned 100 yesterday. They told the usual stuff, married 73 years, a couple of kids, served in the Army during WW2 and so forth. They asked the usual question, "what do you attribute to your living so long?" He looked at the camera and with a Dead pan face, he answered, "just don't die". No better answer could have been given......

RE: Going Salt Water Fishing, at long last

hey guys, I am really amped on this fishing trip!!! Just hope the weather holds up, we only get one shot at it and the weather can be iffy in July. I had quad by-pass surgery in January, 2001, at the age of 52. I decided then if I am going to do anything in this world, I better get it done, nothing is guaranteed in this world. I started going on mission trips in March of 2003 to Honduras and Nicaragua and then eight years ago we planted a Church in Belize and I have enjoyed ALL of the trips, met some amazing people I will never forget. I have been thinking of slowing down for a couple of years but my youngest granddaughter at the age of 15 showed and interest in going on the mission trip and she LOVES it. She works with the pre-school age kids and has brought several of her friends with her and I could not say no to her when she asks me to keep coming also. She graduated from High School in May and goes off to college in September and may not make the Belize trip again, so what could I do....... This year our Fun Day was scheduled at the beginning of the week, not the last day when we are all worn out from the work and heat and humidity and I will be fresh and ready. I will take the necessary drugs and wear the bracelets to keep me from getting seasick. I do not really care if I do not catch anything, this trip is dedicated to my late brother who loved fishing more than I do.....
