Hey ya'll. The hot smoke being blown around on this thread has inflated my balloon and I'm visible again. (Only those in the know, know what I'm talking about.)

Opossums are nocturnal creatures. So are coons and skunks. We have had coon and skunk invasions before. I just use a live box trap with some caned cat food in it. Works good and if you catch you own pet you can just let it go. Although they usually won't go in a second time. Then I take them to a park in town which is on a river. When you turn them coons loose they hit the water on a run, and never to be seen again. Skunks are a little more of a problem to get out of a live trap. It can get very stinky if you are not careful. Possums are no problem as I have caught a few of them. Some city animal controll people will trap them for you. A BB gun is not very effective on a possum. They are very tough, and you think you got him, but he's just playing possum, or just himself as he don't have to play what he already is. Happy hunting Diane!

Di, I enjoyed the creative fencing you put together for your mom. She didn't have to feel isolated from the family while she stayed flat to recover...a good morale booster.

How's she doing this morning? And you? Continuing Ohhhmmms.

Cheers!
Sue

What does it matter on the amenities? No beauty shop but it does have the main essential....A liquor store!
None of us can call what we do roughing it anyways. We call it "Glamping".

Hi All!

Hope those of you who are on trips are enjoying yourselves...hope those of you sick are getting well...hope those of you caring for elderly relatives are not feeling too much pain.

I am home...the trip back was uneventful...except for the stop in Tucumcari, NM where I had to actually stay at a campground; Cactus RV Park, which was delightful, but the city itself was a shocker; it's just "this" close to being a ghost town. Years ago I was through there, and thought it a quaint and charming place; my how the economy affects some places.

And in Gallup, NM...again someone ask me for $...just like in Grants, NM on my way out. However, this time it was a young man, instead of an old drunk. I could tell he was NOT high on anything, and just down on his luck. Plus, he gratefully accepted a meal that I bought him at MCDs instead of just handing him cash. That tells me he was sincere.

Anyway, I'm still having issues with my macerator. So I went to my local Camping World and asked how much to change it back to a regular 3" but "see thru" hose, with an automatic back-flush. $550.00 was the answer.

Jake thinks the motor might be bad in the macerator, so if I gotta fix that...I might as well get it changed back...and into what I really want.

IDK if CW is the best place to have that done; I should probably get a few estimates, and have a few more conversations about it with some experts. After all Mesa, AZ is the RV capital of this side of the world!

Oooohhmmms to All!

Lol.... I have never ever lived in the country..... Opossums are scary looking to me.....

Mama doing well. Went to her home today....
Pups were good with her... LitaBit was her protector last year when she had it. QTπ would get into the pen with her by going under the couch, but is too small to get on couch yet.....

And Larry did the pen..... Lol... I cannot take the credit... But it worked well....
And mama loved it....

Now i am going kayak shopping.... Always wanted one when we were whitewater canoeing, years ago... Still have 1 canoe, but it us so heavy... Any suggestions?

Yes....I like the "Sit on Top" kayak. I got to try one in Hawaii years ago. Some are called "Ocean Kayak."

They don't have a hole cut out on the top, but rather it's all open with molded spaces set so many inches apart for the heels of your feet. There is quite a range for short, or tall people. this is the reason I like this kayak...no restrictions. I find that the ones with the holes on top are very restricting in that you can't move around and adjust yourself, then my legs fall asleep, and my back starts to hurt.

Also, I like to get wet when I'm either kayaking or canoeing. The sit-on-top has holes going thru to the water so you can both splash yourself when hot, and let the excess water run thru back into the water you are in. So if you have to ah...let out your ah...own "water," you can do that too

And yes...there's places to tie down gear, or dogs.

Get rid of the food sources. Bird feeders nearby? leaving dog food out? I had one who would come up onto the deck ( 2nd story) and climb up onto the railing and eat the cat food. quit leaving the cat food out, the possum quit climbing up for a free meal. Have a friend who had one cleaning up under her bird feeders, she trapped it and released it out of town.
