Mort is mortified!
Les - how is Mort doing and is Margaret getting a prosthetic made? When Sparky heard the news he was visibly shaken and acted a little squirley for a day or two but he's slowing coming around.

I've been hiding out too well for the past month. Now hanging at Rainbow's End (appropriate place for a RVM) for a month, at least the coach is. We leave for Israel on Monday until Jan 6. Will be drifting west sometime after our return. Will report where we are going when we know (or maybe later).

Should I just buy a cheap adjustable wrench and forget trying to find the correct size?
I hate to say this, but I agree with Denis. Crescent wrenches do have a tendency to slip, can bust knuckles, and round off what they are trying to adjust. You may wish to look into replacing the hose with the newer type that is hand tightened using a big plastic knob on the connector. They are hand tightened. Use a soapy water solution after turning on the propane to check for leaks.

From Bob's mom who had the aneurysm leak a few months ago..( she's in her late 80's)
Dear Bob and Martha.
Today I accomplished the 5th and last goal I had set for myself: 1)to be abler to drive a car 2) to drive a car alone 3) to get up in time to fix breakfast for Bob<her spouse> and me so we could eat together. 4( to go off my meds 5) to get back to my exercise class in XXXXx. Yesterday my PT director had me go from a sitting position to standing as many; times as I could in 30 seconds and I did 15. The first time I was there I had done 10. The norm for a woman in her 60s is 8.
Rejoice with me and praise God!
Love,
Mom

Should I just buy a cheap adjustable wrench and forget trying to find the correct size?

Barb:

My propane wrench is a 7/8" flare wrench purchased from a pawn shop for $1.00. It stays on a clip in the compartment just above the propane tank. I have an "extend-a-stay" connection with a 5' hose and almost always use an exterior 40# tank. I use the MH tank as a back-up.

I like the idea of Utah, but prefer southern Utah's amazing scenery. This is one option. I was there in the Spring of 2012 and this is a really nice campground.

Paul,

It's really nice here in central Florida. Have you considered heading east instead? Several RVMs will be here this winter --Sue, Papaw Steve, Bokobird, just to name a few.

Today is a special anniversary for me. Eleven years ago today I went to sleep a 395# woman and woke up six hours later with a tool that helped me lose over 235#. I wouldn't have even considered RVing before that. It's not for everyone, but gastric bypass surgery saved my life. I'm thankful for Dr Aquirre, the skilled surgeon in Ensenada Mexico, who made it possible.
