Missed a few days while we were camping. A few thoughts while catching up on the chatter:

Tim - Sorry for the loss of your friend. Many ohmms to you and their family.

Di - Sorry you didn't get the jeep pictured but glad to hear you are picking up your new baby today! Pics soon please. Happy 13th Anniversary.

Dwayne & Shara - That new kitty will bring delight to Shara. Enjoyed the delight you brought to her.

Possum - Glad your grand is okay!

HerbnBarb - Good luck to your grands this weekend.

Romin roman - If you are as unique or strange as we are, then we'll both fit in nicely.

Sophapi - Congrats on the paper signing!

plasma800 - Congrats on the new silver ride!

Wayne M - Glad the citrus is getting repaired! I bet that is a weight lifted.

Dwayne & Shara - Wow, Dwayne..it looks like you can take anything and make it look beautiful again. That's a wonderful skill and talent you have.

Hopefully I didn't miss someone. We've been thinking about the western theme and then realized we have lived in the west our whole lives so does that mean we should come as we are to UT? A modern west theme - T-shirts and jeans! LOL.

My mature model has fiberglass up the sides, but an aluminum or some such sheet on the top. Of course there are seams to care for... but I think that would have gone in my direction had the hail happened to Honey...

I am totally in love with this thing... it's all those windows, and that drool worthy dark furniture and light floor.
How about Silver? As in High Hoo Silver

I must be several hundred pages behind in my reading. I am trying to have a mutant life on the road and that means not sitting at the computer/tablet/phone all day. As it is I am spending far more time on the various 'puters than is healthy.

We are in the Ozarks, someplace, heading easterly, as soon as the grey tank fills and we need to move the coach to empty it. Probably rolling on Monday. I don't see us heading through Little Rock as that would mean going through ATL which is not going to happen, on our way to Gaffney.

We are working on a 16th birthday for a grandson right now. We will see him shortly after his birthday on our way to VT. His family will be joining us on the road in their new trailer.

Sending ohms to all in need and congrats to those who are due them. To others, Hi, we will watch for you as we roll.

Notice the white stuff in the picture - No it is not snow. We were on the Tucannon River near Pomeroy WA at the Last Resort KOA this last week. Bad time of yearfor allergies but great campground and hosts. All the cottonwood trees are loosing their cotton. It looked like it was snowing huge flakes. Our TT is gonna need a good cleaning!

Barb, I think you are okay, but a call to ins wouldn't hurt. OTOH, estimates are free.
Of course my only experience is with my S&B. That said a few years ago the neighbor's tree lost a limb and broke my electric service lines and burnt the wires off in the down mast. I called the insurance co and asked, had $1K deductible. I didn't finish the claim as it cost just shy of $1K to repair. Then a hail storm took out the roof. They paid out $27K on that. Next two renewals on the home owners policy increased the premium 50% each time. They also kept the unfiled claim on their records. When I confronted the agent about it he used the excuse the co was paying out $1.50 for every $1.00 they were taking in in the state. Worst part was there were no other ins co's that were any cheaper for the coverage!

Maybe a call to your agent first might be a good idea. JMHO

New update on car repairs to hail damage.

$6684

We were supposed to get the Linky out of shop today but when the guy was installing the new roof molding he spotted a couple more hail dents, so it is in paint today and most likely will be finished Tuesday. (Holiday weekend.) Sure do miss a second car. Turned in the rental. Only had authorizations, and according to my insurance policy, for 20 days.

You need to be careful posing all those homy things you can do. Shara may think you're trolling for mutant girlfriends.

Nice job, very nice indeed.

I'm suspecting that many other mutants there may have had damage that they are not aware of. Best it is inspected by professionals.

Considering that the majority of time in Citrus has been on the road or in open sunlight, I don't think having the sun beat down on any roof is good for it. Most likely it can crystallize things. Consider the rubber roofs. What damage under the rubber was cause by hail. Dwayne posted shortly after the hail storm what could happen to rubber roofs. I'll stay with the fiberglass if it is an option or standard equipment.

The sides received glancing blows but even the aluminum bay doors took damage.

Hey! Hello Mr. Malone. Long time no see. You're looked "dead" as usual.
