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

So sorry to hear about your pup Lola! It’s so hard when they leave us, especially so suddenly! Hugs! (We still have no idea what happened to our Raven kitty… she was in the yard at 7 pm and we went to bring her in not even a half hour later and she wasn’t responding to calling her nor was she in any of her usual spots. We just expected she’d come in the dog/cat door as she so often did, but that was Aug 21st and she’s still missing. ) Again, sincere sympathy and condolences, so very sorry for you all!

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

Happy National Dog Day!!! I have 5 dogs that pretty much run the place around here. I'm blessed to live on a small farm with horses and a few cats. My "littles" travel with us as we trail ride all over the country. The 3 big dogs stay home and help my grown kids who live down the road take care of the place. I miss Richard and his beautiful stories, always enjoyed them over my coffee. RIAH I sure hope the cat comes home. Happy Dog Day!!! Thank you for the hope of the cat returning… sadly, she still has not been seen… I’m thinking an owl, red tail, coyote, fox or bear may have done her in… all of those predators are around here…. I guess we were lucky enough to have her in the family for the past 11 years… Just sad because we let her stay out instead of bringing her in at 7 pm that night because it was still light out and nice out… hindsight shows that to have been a big mistake…. I hope everyone is safe and doing well!

Thank you!!!( Still no luck yet but until we have evidence of otherwise, I will keep praying and hoping for the best!) Riah, Longshot, but see if you have any local Facebook pages. Post there. Also contact the nearby pet shelters. Hope you find the "meow".

RE: snowbird season/route to use west towards Az via TX from Fl

Ok, maybe I should have worded the inquiry different … sort of initially looking for routes and parks between Florida and Texas, as well as learn of where else people may frequent in Texas that are reasonably priced alternative options (such as COE or passport america , RPI, etc harvest hosts/BW, and other less pricy favorite stopovers … and then from Texas Westward same information but for the various places in between youd highly recommended… don’t need frills just quiet 30 amp with dump station although option for electric is helpful at times too! But we are set up for shorter dry camping stints with solar dcdc charger and a generator so we can boondock as well and prefer it if we can find peace and quiet locations to stay at that are safe

Ok good to know! Thanks for clarifying that Larry :)

RE: solar powered electric vehicle.

Adding a DCDC charger to your system would also be helpful in creating additional charging capacity while driving down the road to supplement what is being produced by your solar panels! Interesting concept. Power per area.. I'm told that at My Latitude (Think Flint MI) 5 Acres = 1 Megawatt. I do have a queston: When they rate Solar Panels in Watts. is that "Instant peak sun production" or "Watt hours per day"? (I think insta-peak) It's an instantaneous output under standard conditions. To get to watt hours, you have to find the "sun hours" for the location. For example Flint Mi in June is around 6.4. So if you have a 100w panel, it should generate around 640w-hr. Of course, in December, the sun is low on the horizon and it tends to be overcast, so it's only 1.35 sun hours, so 135 w-hr. Of course, most people aren't camping in flint in the winter time. With the extended wing system taking up the entire roof plus two wings of similar size, they claim 6000w of solar panels. So assuming a fairly typical 4 sun hours, that's around 24 kwh of power per day. I think they are exaggerating the per day miles (probably by assuming very low speeds. Realistically, that's probably good for 25-30miles per day but more importantly, it's probably good to cover all the house electrical loads including air/con. You will still likely need to stop at charging stations regularly if you want to cover significant distances and it's probably crazy expensive compared to a typical camper van.

snowbird season/route to use west towards Az via TX from Fl

We have reservations for 6 weeks starting mid December through end of January at TT Orlando and Peace River. After that we are thinking of heading west towards Arizona via Texas. What routes would you suggest? Where would you stay? We have a legacy TT membership with 60 parks (TT, NACO, LTR) but there’s nothing really until Texas for camping though that TT membership plan. Hence, where would you suggest for reasonable priced stays until we get into Tx and can use our legacy membership where we can stay for $5 a night with our new to us Alliance membership - as we will have used up all but the 50 “free” nights the plan allows for and then we pay $5 a night…it’s a trade off for scoring the 210 day (7 month) booking window and the additional holiday and high use reservations at those 60 parks; we could upgrade and gain the unlimited camping and the additional 20ish ODW and MA, parks but it comes at the cost of an additional $6100… and since we aren’t sure we are the TT type of patron camper, I’m hesitant to upgrade without first checking the TT preserves out using this affordable new to us legacy membership we procured, which will pay for itself either way at the bargain rate we were blessed/lucky to obtain it at!

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

This is not a dog related post, but, in the spirt of Old Fella, if you all can possibly say a prayer for our family’s feline that went missing Sunday night, her canine sister and human pack would greatly appreciate it!!! Sadly, she wasn’t chipped nor collared, so there is no identifying information relating her to us. (She was a barn cat that was born to strays left off in the neighborhood that adopted us…she came in one day 11 years ago through the dog door and never left. She moved with us 7 years ago to the current location we are residing.) She has never been gone more than a day and it’s now been 5 days now. She is neutered also, so not lie she would be out for that reason either…. Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well! PS- Is Waynesboro the town located in VA? Just curious which state we are referring to for the Old Fella pilgrimage….
