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

Good morning FOOFs My Heart Cath went well. I see my Cardiologist on the 23rd. Blockage was not severe enough to require stents so hopefully just medication for the future. Thanks for your prayers. Dan Good to hear! :)

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

Saw my cardiologist today. CT angiogram showed some blockage. I will have a heart catheter done on Thursday and possibly have some stints put in. Dan Best of luck Dan. Hope all proceeds well.

RE: How to install stuff on walls

For blinds I think I would use screws, but coat them with either epoxy of wood glue. As you say wood screws do have a habit of stripping out and I have found the wood glue helps a lot. For wall hangings generally we mainly use Command Strips and sometimes small pieces of Velcro. Put on correctly the Command strips don't fail very often - provided you use the correct size for the weight of the object being hung. If you watch the 'Changing Lanes' videos on YouTube they are full-timers for the last 5 years and they swear by them - as do I.

RE: Bicycles

We've carried our two bikes on an RV-rated bike rack mounted on the chassis-integrated hitch receiver on the back of our two fifth wheels the whole time we've been on the road. Zero issues and no sacrifice of interior configuration or living space. We keep them secured and a good cover on them at all times (except when riding, of course). Rob Ditto - have done over 12,000 miles with two electric bikes on Thule rack on rear hitch - Hitch was preinstalled on our Cougar and is rated for a tongue weight of 300 lbs, plus 3000 bs tow weight. Back in Colorado, all surrounding states, we used to tow double as it was allowed there - but not here in Florida. Bikes don't move much - Thule has a screw tightening pin which takes out most of the hitch movement. As for the hitch mounted on the pin - that would be better for long bed trucks, where turning and hitting the cab with the bikes may not be an issue. Plus, at 74, I don't think I could lift a bike that high any more. :)

RE: Grand Junction to Denver in early to mid April

March and April are normally the two snowiest months in the Rockies and Denver (and east) area. I lived there for 30 years. However, snow can come and go fairly quickly. It would be prudent to look at accurate forecasts for areas such as Vail Pass and the Eisenhower Tunnels and plan around that. If snowfall is heavy, chains can become mandatory.

RE: short high end fifth wheel

Thanks all for the suggestions. Artic Fox is about as close as Ive been able to get,but the shortest just not a good floorplan for me. Really frustrating that nobody tests the market. Same problem with travel trailers. That Cougar 27SGS is a nice floorplan! Wish they made it in the Premium series. Accepted it is not a premium model, but we have found the quality to be very good. :)

RE: short high end fifth wheel

We love our Cougar- see signature. She is just 31ft.

Burch, So very sorry to read this about Lola. Our hearts go out to you. Martyn and Liane

RE: Rockwood & Flagstaff

Take a look at the Keystone Cougar 25RES. Fits all your numbers and from experience (we have the 27SGS) very nice trailers.

RE: Georgia States parks Veterans Memorial State Park

I agree it is a bit 'fiddley' to book there now. I have reservation there for January. :)

RE: Not enough room

I, too, use Google Maps street view. Usually get a good idea of what to expect.

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

What a day yesterday was. We had wind gusts over 100mph. My front yard is trashed with leaves and branches from my two oak trees. I had one little leak around my skylight in my kitchen but other than that, no damage from hurricane Ian. There is a mobile home park down the street and parts of it look like a war zone. My father in law lives there and his place was spared but his neighbors place lost the roof. The clubhouse roof got peeled off and is laying in the road. Lots of poor people are displaced right now. I have lived in Florida all my life and this was the worst storm we have gone through. Burch Glad you made it through relatively unscathed. We know how it feels, after having gone through Michael, here, 4 years ago. My heart goes out to all those folks who are suffering right now.
