[quote Trish Davis]Yes, Mark, I'm here. Got a nifty, new Netbook, so my internet presence will grace you again. Or, store it up as penance for things you've done.
My back is better, but my right leg & foot are numb. As if they've been asleep for an hour. Leg won't support me, so I'm still going around on my cane. It is very attractive, akin to having a "Victim" tattoo on my forehead.
Every other day, I swear I'm going to sell everything and go live in my aunt's cottage in Ireland. Sell the Travco, really? Nah...
I have to borrow an expression from that beloved cartoon character
"Bullwinkle the Moose" here because I can't think of anything better than what he'd say:
It's great to read you! Been wondering how you been doing. The cottage in Ireland sounds heavenly. But somehow I can't see "Victim"
tattooed on you anywhere... but I could see you wielding a mean "quad"
cane lol... So what's the verdict, if the MDs have any yet, on what's going on with your right leg and foot? I can commiserate somewhat, my diabetic neuropathy makes both my feet feel numb. Makes it hard to walk sometimes, and play a left foot bass part on the pedals of my
Hammond RT-3... Other than that, I only need a cane sometimes.
I always pray for better, for all of us...
And since you got a new Netbook, I got me a new Toshiba Satellite laptop with the nice BIG 18.3" screen... sweet... so me gotsa new toy too lol...
And I have missed you being here... so even if penance, I am graced by your presence. But that's just me. And I have magnificent taste, don't I? I think so. Uh huh. Yep.

went on on bike ride today in lisbon ohio. its way out in the country. you know, beutifull and then a junk yard in someones front yard...... well, one of the locals had two old dodge class c's in thier back yard. been there for a long time, but not too bad. shame they dont use them or sell them to a happy camper.
You were in Lisbon deliberately? Or did you do something bad and get sentenced to hell?
Uhm, those old C's aren't junk, they're meth labs.
What do you bet Kirk thinks I'm kidding....
I sprayed coffee outta my nose when I read this...
Trish, after my surgeries, my legs had numb and weak areas too. It sometimes takes a while for nerves to grow back together. They grow at a very slow rate, so don't give up the ship just yet, better days are ahead, I'm sure !

Trish, it could be much worse. I lost my right leg below the knee Dec 2004 to a staph infection... Today I can still wiggle the "toes" on the right foot and that "itch" on the bottom of that foot is impossible to scratch.
No matter what the docs say... To ME it's still a "real" feeling.
Being temporarily "hobbled" is still 1000 percent better than not having a limb.
I forget if the rules here say you can not sell anything or not, I' don't remember,.. But I have a 1980's 357 MAG S&W for sale for $500 Looks brand new, No marks/scratches whatsoever This gun is like brand new, I would say it is about a $700 to $800 Gun, Very nice
I believe it is around 1981 or 1982, MOD#586-4 blue steel
Comes with two speed loaders and the case.
Yesterday, I went to a physiatrist, that is a nerve doc. She was thorough, oh my god was she thorough and I was exhausted. After, as Dan was driving in PGH, we got cut off by a short bus.
This is the story of my life, I swear.
See, I can't balance properly, rt foot refuses to be more than a kickstand.
So, neat things like test-firing oldtrucker's S&W just aren't going to happen.
I'd buy it, OT, but I love shotguns, they are so subtle.
Drive home, I kept saying "what if this is IT" to my son. He's optomistic by nature, but also fed up with me being a cripple (so am I), so Dan said if it comes to it, he will finish the Travco himself.
Oh, sure, that's right up there with me posting pictures.
I don't want to hear it Trish! I had similar thoughts when I lost my leg... Six months later I was back on the Goldwing. It was a long road back, but going out to the airbase and practicing on the MSF range for the last six years I can now do ALL the exercises for both the basic and advanced programs. This includes doing figure eights in an 18x40 foot box with an 800 pound fully dressed bike.
All it takes is refusing to give in and let the "nay sayers" win.
These are for a 1973 RM350 chassis. There were considerable variations in the chassis used in older Dodge motorhomes so these may or may not be appropriate for your particular motorhome. (Also, my chassis is a Class A so these parts may not be appropriate for Class C motorhomes.)
The brakes are the Kelsey-Hayes dual piston calipers, casting number 91133, used on medium duty chassis. The 1-ton light duty chassis (i.e., M300, RM300, MB300, etc.) were apparently single piston calipers.
I can help find part numbers for anyone that needs help. (I have access to catalogs that list parts not normally listed in the computer systems ... also, I have a lot of practice in the art of finding parts for older trucks.) Send me a PM and I'll see what I can do.
