It would seem time would be better spent working on the MH instead of taking the bristles out of junk brushes, but your project, your time I guess. [emoticon]




Was cleaning up. Spent 2 minutes pulling bristles and taking a couple of pics.

Not a big time waster.

Too many computers to work on this week, as well as trying to get ready for an upcoming (hopefully) trip out west to my brother in law for his birthday.

If I post about the trip, is that going to get deleted?

I certainly hope so. I don't need notifications that you have posted about something completely off-topic. Nothing to stop you from posting elsewhere in an appropriate topic if you think it's RV related somehow.

Grind the flat part at an angle and use them as a spatula to either mix or spread the fiberglass epoxy or give them as butter spreaders for X-mass.

Got it.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Wow, what a week. Did I mention I don't like stress any more? Lol.

Swamped with computers last week, PLUS.....

As you know, if you have followed this for a while, wife and I had our 50th anniversary in March this year.

We've been kicking around for a while about going out to the state of Washington to visit my brother in law.

He's only about 1/2 as crazy as I am.

Anyhow, trying to tie up all the loose ends with computers, as well as trying to get ready for the upcoming trip - starting this week, by the way - created a little more stress than I like.

However, it looks like we'll be on time to leave, and I have just a couple of things to finish up computer wise, so it's starting to look better.

I do have some interesting info coming up, some of which, I hope to post during the trip, that ties in to exactly what I want to do with the motor home, when the time comes.

Not making any promises, so we'll see how this unfolds during the next 3 weeks.

If you had planned right you could have taken the motorhome! [emoticon]


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Ah, Yeah. I have looked at this six ways from Sunday for months now.

That was the original plan.

I havent seen too many rv's on the road for the last few weeks. I am assuming it is because fuel is too expensive.

That's my feeling as well. To put things into perspective, a 6000 mile round trip, @ 8 mpg, will consume 750 gallons of gas. @ 4.69 a gallon, which what it is currently in our area, that's a total of $3,517.50.

@ 20 mpg that same mileage will use 300 gallons with a total of $1407.

@ 25 mpg we're looking at 240 gallons and $1125.6.

That's a huge difference.

Where can I find a vehicle that I can sleep in that will average 20 to 25 mpg? Vans. Specifically, Ford Transit vans are listed anywhere from 19 to 27 mpg highway depending on engine combinations and so forth.

I know, I know, I can buy a lot of gas for the purchase price of a van.

Who said anything about purchase?

The gas pains won't last forever, but may interrupt some travels.

In the meantime, if you are desperate for a get away trip, a van rental may suffice.

Just paid $5.459 for Diesel near Myrtle Beach, SC. Hurts, but I didn't by my coach to set at home. Still have about 1000 miles plus or minus before we get back home. People are still out, I have had some trouble getting sites on the weekends.
