RE: Tough Week

So sorry for your loss, but so happy that your companion knew unconditional love and care all his life. Dale

RE: New Working LGDs

Your border collies are amazing, Mark. Just beautiful how they are so focused. Glad you've got some LGD's to help them out. Dale

RE: Brevard County Florida camping fee changes

I'm not sure raising the rate 200% is the answer to what they perceived to be a problem. That may just keep local residents from signing up. We used to camp at Wickham park but haven't now for years. It was due to the homeless, the dead bodies (yes, dead bodies) and inconsiderate campers, i.e., loud music, loud and profane yelling, etc. They had no restrictions on campers and one group would tow their motorhomes in because they wouldn't run. They all camped around the bathhouses and basically took them over to where you didn't even feel comfortable using the laundry. What caused the most problem, in my estimation, was the 5+ months of camping. Rules weren't enforced and too many homeless. The changes they made to address that resulted in removing the habitat for many of the animals which we enjoyed seeing. Dale

RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

I just got back from my shakedown cruise. Drove 90 miles away to the mothership (factory) and had some warranty stuff done. Got my 2 TV's set up. . . not that I will used them, but wanted to know how to access over the air channels. Did one the first night, the second the next night. Learned how to activate the A/C, heat pump and furnace from the Firefly. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but there is a learning curve. Used my induction cooktop for the first time. Success. Used the micro/convection successfully. Overall, think I'm going to love my new (to me) coach. Dale

RE: Boondockers welcome

It appears you can do this with Boondockers welcome, but the Harvest Host site doesn't allow it. Dale

RE: Cassiar Highway

Planning to take this route when we drive from Seattle to Alaska in May, spending 4 - 5 days travelling, and stopping for hikes. We are from UK, and my question relates to satellite communicators/phones. We, at home, have a Spot (with no messaging facility) for emergencies, but we are following our RV trip with a cruise, and the cruise line states clearly that this would not be allowed on the ship. Our preference would be for a two way communicator or phone, and I am looking for recommendations of somewhere we could rent one in Seattle and return it in Anchorage. Any help would be much appreciated! The cruise line doesn't allow a Spot? When we went to Alaska we had our Spot. I used it to send a message every night to our kids so they knew where we were. We cruised on the Alaska ferries and nothing was every mentioned. We also rented a satellite phone and took it with us for the trip. My DH had health issues and I wanted to be able to get help if something happened to him. It was cheap insurance. We never used it but it was available if needed. Dale

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

Best wishes to you and Zuzu. I'm sure she will do fine. I didn't go to the Tampa show because I don't like crowds and since I just bought my new rig, I didn't need to look. But I would have liked to look at accessories. I currently am down at the mothership in Nokomis getting my service work done. Some was scheduled by the previous owner, but then my backup camera went out. I'm getting an entirely new camera that is actually a rearview camera. . . even better! This one can be on all the time. I can use it to see what is behind me. I had wanted that originally, but my coach didn't have it. It will now. Yay! Dale

RE: lighter weight four down toad?

I googled looking for a toad to use as a dinghy for a 3500 Sprinter Class C. The recommendations were vehicles like Jeeps, F150 pickups, Chevy Colorado, Equinox. That's heavier than I want. Aren't there some scooters like a Kia Soul or Honda CRV or HRv that'll flat tow? A Honda Fit or BMW Mini are a little too small. The Honda Element seemed to be what I had in mind but they don't make them anymore. The CRV cannot be flat towed. In fact the 2022 dinghy guide from FMCA does not list any Hondas. They used to be one of the most popular. The guide also gives the weight. Good place to look. If you are a member you can look at all the years' guides, all the way back to 1999. Dale

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

I thought about going to the show, but I don't like crowds! And I just bought my dream coach, so no need to look for one. Dale

RE: Hwy 15 Indiana

Summer before last there was a lot of construction on 31 and also 20. Since Goshen is my hometown, I visit there every summer. My sister lives just off 15 south of Warsaw. True, there are a few towns, but a charming drive and I normally choose that over 31/20. Dale Thank you. I have been thru on I-69 but never used 15. The only pics of the road I could find on the internet were dated so I was wondering. It sounds like you travel that road enough and I value your opinion. I just did not want to get stuck on a road pulling a 40 footer that was stop and go too much. For years I drove our 40' Phaeton towing a truck on 15. No problems. Our doctors were in Indy so we often stayed in/around there and then took 15 to northern Indiana. I-69 has always been a parking lot northeast of Indy and it doesn't go to Elkhart. They've been doing a lot of work on it up around the music center, but I try to avoid that by going the back roads. Follow the truck route through Wabash. Dale I'm no longer in the 40'er and still go 15. I sometimes take 465 around the east side of Indy to 31 north of Indy. I take it to 24, then east to 15 at Wabash. That way you could feel out 31. Are you staying at Elkhart Campground?

RE: We're getting ready........for lambing

Beautiful Wendy. Just so sorry for your loss . . . and at such a critical time. I'm praying you can protect your livestock and find the helpers you need. Dale

RE: San Antonio

We stayed at the KOA San Antonio. Site was large enough for our 43' MH and full sized pickup toad. There is an adjacent bike trail to ride on and city bus service at the gate if desired. We stayed here years ago and took the bus to town. Easy peasy. Dale

RE: We're getting ready........for lambing

It was a sad morning; we found Wendy dead on one of her sleeping spots in the field. There were no sign of injury or infection. She was her normal self yesterday. Oh no, Mark! I am so sorry. I remember so well when you got her. With Sam gone and now Wendy, you don't have any dogs guarding your flock, do you? So very sad for you. Dale

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

Be well, Burch. My one of my friends in Indiana, my BFF actually, started having eye problems last week. Had a badly detached retina and had emergency surgery on Friday. It went well, but they had to stay in a hotel for 2 nights due to the impending storm up there. She is back home now and healing. At least being retired, she didn't have a lot of responsibilities but I think it would still be hard around the holidays as I don't know if she is even able to do anything. She has a wonderful husband so she is getting good care, but it was scary. She could have gone blind in that eye. I am thankful for all my friends here and there and that I have my daughter and family visiting. We are going to my son's. First time in prolly 20 years we have been together for a holiday. Merry Christmas to all my fellow FOOFs. May you all be blessed and experience good health this coming year. Dale

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

Glad you're finally feeling better, Burch. Best wishes for a full recovery. Zuzu is a cutie for sure. My daughter and her family arrived yesterday from Virginia. They are here for 2 weeks. We are going to my son's in Melbourne for Christmas dinner. First time in maybe 20 years we have all been together. Hope you all are settling into your holiday plans. Merry Christmas to all! Dale
