Blessings in Life

Posted 12-31-2019 at 11:58 AM by jsutphen

As I sit here in central Florida, celebrating my birthday (don't ask how many), the weather is dry, sunny, and wonderfully cool in the shade. The dog is laying beside me and enjoying life as much as I am I believe. We purchased our 2019 Tiffin Allegro in June this year and up until a week ago had not gone longer than 3 nights on a trip because of work and school schedules. This year we did something different -- we have taken 2 weeks of adventure from NJ to the FL keys. I am reminded of how blessed...

RE: Cummins 400 ISL
Exhaust Tube Replacement

I removed the existing tube, had a muffler shop weld A new Flange on the old tube added a heat shield, and replace. Just under $250 installed. Freightliner wanted $750 for the tube plus installation.



The replacement has been in use over a year, without an issue.

RV Projects: New Bedroom Upholstery -- 12/25/2019


(This post is a long overdue wrap-up of our summer RV project list.)

One problem commonly encountered in an older RV is detail upholstery that has lasted beyond its useful life. That was certainly the case in the bedroom of our 2001 NewAire. The original styled fabrics had become time-worn and were begging to be replaced.

Winter 2019-20

Posted 12-24-2019 at 11:05 AM by miwok

I have made the step to winter in Florida, and I have the opportunity to do it where my mom had a mobile home for many years.
While a friendly place and active, I am close to a railroad track that runs all hours of the day and night. The freeway is also half a mile away, and an overpass ensures traffic noise will carry at night..
Wish I was on the road, this is as bad as motels used to be, you never know what you are going to get. I can see why people go to the same place every year,...

VA Trip Days 3-10

Posted 12-13-2019 at 05:54 PM by MEWright

11/24/2019
Day 3

Well I called it pretty spot on in the last blog. We got out at 9am not 10 as predicted. Hit the road with absolutely no intentions of stopping other than to pee. We have to stop since I am the only driver. Drove straight into VA without incident until…… The traffic in this state is ridiculous and the drivers are bizarre. We got stuck in 3, no lie, 3, count them 1 , 2 , 3 wrecks that caused the entire freeway to be SHUT DOWN. Seriously I lost my mind at the...

As you can see, this ornament is a depiction of a class A motorhome appropriately branded Relax.

Random Thoughts

Posted 12-04-2019 at 06:53 PM by TriMoot

I've had a blog since January 2008 and mostly just chronicled my attempts at doing triathlons, running and life stuff. Haven't posted anything in over a year, but today, Dec 4th, 2019 is my Mom's birthday and she's been gone since June of 2008 and for some reason just felt like writing.

But wasn't planning on posting it here, but here's a link if anyone is interested.
