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

Good morning everyone. The nights are still cold here but the day's are pleasant except for the wind blowing. Sue and the girls have gone for a walk while I finish my breakfast and look at the Old Fella thread. I don't have much to do today except go to the bank and put Arnold Palmer's letter in the safety deposit box. Last night at church a friend drove his newly purchased 1964 Chevrolet SS Super Sport for all of us who lust after such things could drool and look at this magnificent automobile. It looked as good as the day it rolled off the show room floor brand new. I came back home and looked at the 72 Lincoln and thought how nice to have a part of my past to come back to me and rest in my garage waiting for me to crank it up and take it for a drive. It too looks just as good as the day it was new forty five years ago. Dale still have you in my prayers as well and the Branson and Healey families. I think this summer will be an exciting time for Sue and I. WE are planning on traveling since we have good equipment to do it with. Might be the last summer we have to take advantage of being young;) and in good health. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now 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.

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 We will keep that in mind.

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

I ordered a 36 gallon fuel tank to go in the bed of the F250. That will give me a total of 56 gallons of diesel fuel which should get me six hundred miles down the road between fuel stops. The twenty- six gallon tank that came with the F250 short bed just isn't enough. Now I can stop when I want to not when I have to. I really like the way the truck handles the Montana since I put the extra springs on the rear. The truck hardly squats at all when I put the Montana's load on it. Sue and I are talking about trying again this year for Michigan. We started last year and didn't make it when the Motorhome developed a problem with one of the slideouts. We are still talking about it and thinking we might go at the end of June. Why not? New truck, new camper with new tires on it. If we are going, now is the time to do it. I will never be this young again, right?

RE: Fuel tank in bed of truck

I just bought a 32 gallon low profile tank that will fit in the bed of my truck between the fifth wheel hitch and the cab. That will give me 56 gallons of diesel. That will get me about five hundred miles down the road between stops. I am pleased with my purchase, now to get it all hooked up.

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

Good morning everyone. Dale wrote " Surgery scheduled for Friday at 9:30 a.m". We will be in prayer for you to have a successful surgery and recovery. Last night was a bit scary with all the thunder storms that rolled through our area. We were not hit that hard but it was all around us. Hobo was unsettled and could not find a comfortable place to hide while lightening danced through the night skies. Suzie and Izzie just slept through it. I hope we are finished with the bitter cold weather and can look forward to spring. Maybe by next week the lawn will start to turn green. I took the Montana to Camping World yesterday and left it for the repairs to be done. I am going to have a 30 gallon tank installed in the bed of the truck to extend my range so I don't have to stop for fuel every 200 miles. Looking forward to doing some traveling this summer. I really like the new set up much more than the motorhome. Okay I need to get moving so I will close by 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.

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

Could you at least convince Sue to let a vet prescribe some pain medication? That may be all Izzy needs for now. Going in with Izzie tomorrow.

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

Good morning everyone. I am having a problem with internet explorer or either MSN. I keep getting dumped fro some reason. This has been going on for a while now. I start something and in the middle of it I get **** down. Anyway. I hope all is well with everyone. We seem to be having some issues with the Montana we bought. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Suzie and Hobo are doing well while Izzie is suffering with hip and leg pain. He is still eating and taking care of business and goes where he wants to go, but often I hear him cry out when he gets up. Still can't convince Sue its time to take him to the vet and help him over the bridge. Hobo did okay on the short trip with the camper. With the aid of the Pet Loader steps she is able to climb the steps into the camper. We have been using Pet Loader now for eleven years. We first got them with Old Fella when we made our first Old Fella Rally in Branson, Missouri in 2006. They really have been a life saver for us. Dale I hope you are doing well. Dan and Dan I will be glad for you when you are able to get back on the road. I need to get moving so I will close for now 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.

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

Good morning everyone. Ken emailed me this morning to tell me he and his wife are back home in Washington State and the Foretravel performed great, no problems. He did mention the cruise control stopped working and he had that repaired while he was at the Foretravel factory in Texas. He sent me a picture of it sitting in his storage garage next to his house. I am sure it will get some TLC for the rest of its life or as long as Ken keeps it. Sue and I are leaving this morning for Calhoun Falls State Park. There will not any wifi so I won't be posting for a few days. So I will close for now 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.

If you want it, it's yours, but how to get it to you? You can send it US Mail might be the cheapest. However Sue has Fedex account I will send you in a PM Richard C Daniels 147 Talley Scott Road Piedmont, SC 29673

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

Richard, I have a heated pet mat with cover that might be perfect for Izzie. It's hardly been used at all. It's made by Allied Precision and is 23" x 29". Sounds great. How much for it?

Fuel tank in bed of truck

Okay I just bought a used 2016 Ford F250 short bed with a 6,7 diesel engine. Just discovered it has a 26 gallon fuel tank, Thinking about buying a 30 gallon tank from Tractor Supply and placing it in the bed behind the cab. It sits below the bedrails so it won't interfere with the fifthwheel. My son told me to run a fuel line from the tank to the vent tube at the filler neck with a cut off valve in the line and when I want fuel to go into the factory tank just open the valve and it will flow in by gravity. My question, has anyone done this? It seems to me the vent tube is there for a reason, stopping it up with fuel may cause some issues.

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

Good morning everyone. Mt son Scott bought a tank from Tractor Supply and put it in the bed of his truck and connected it to the stock tank that came in the truck. I am going to see if he will help me installing one in the F250. I am looking at a thirty gallon tank that would give me fifty-six gallons of fuel which would be more that I would actually need. We stopped every three hundred miles for fuel with the F350 and found out that worked best for us. I would like to stop for fuel when I want to instead of when I have to. I had the helper springs installed yesterday on the F250 so I will see how well this works out. Should have bought an F350. Heating pad for Izzie, that's a good idea. I think he would go for that as he likes to lay in front of the fire place when there is a fire going. He will lay there all night even after the fire has gone out but the coals are still warm. Poor thing is struggling with his back legs. Today I am going to call the vet for information as to what can be done for him. Hobo and Suzie are well and out for a walk this morning with Sue. It wasn't as cold this morning. The temp out side when I got up was 30*. Sue and the fur gang are back from their walk. Sue says it is cold outside. Sunday we leave on our first camping trip with the new to us truck and camper. Looks as if it will be a great weekend weather wise. I hope all is well with everyone and I am wishing for you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

BUMMERr:( Just discovered the F250 has a twenty-six gallon fuel tank. That means we will be stopping every two hundred miles for fuel instead of every three hundred. We can't get through Atlanta without a fuel stop unless we stop outside of Atlanta before we go through. Had I known this I would not have bought the truck. My 2006 only had a 26 gallon tank. A lot of fuel stops. What about adding additional tank in the bed. Or can you upgrade to a larger tank? I am looking at different options right now.

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

Good morning everyone. Gary the funds to operate the shelter has already been approved and put into the budget for this year. Yes there is still a long ways to go, but at least things are now moving in the right direction. Staff has to be hired, and a building has to be erected which will take time to consider all the things that have to go into a building and approved by the State of Georgia, but for the first time I really feel Waynesboro, Burke County Georgia will finally get the shelter I have been hoping for. Well it is still cold here in the Deep South. One thermometer close to the house recorded a temperature of 23 degrees. The thermometer out in the yard away from the house said it was 19 degrees this morning. We have one more cold night ahead of us and then a warming trend sets in. Izzie is still struggling, while Hobo and Suzie are doing well. I have to get moving so I will close for now 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.
