Wayne pumps Marshmallow Cream Vodka into his coach - pours a glass of orange juice on the rocks and turns on the tap.

Me neither. I am happy the government took it out of circulation. Although a young lady from Victoria has done penny drives and raised over a million dollars for the Children's variety Charity and enough money to build Jenese Place in Victoria. For a very sick child-teen-young lady she has managed a lot of great accomplishments. http://www.rwglobal.com/~jeneece/index.html

vidalia is the correct spelling... Master gardener here... couldn't let that pass.
And the vowel sounds are all short I believe if you are from the north or east and long if from the south or west...LOL! (except for the second i)

Howles, diesel fuel treatment? Haven't seen it before. Where you get it, didNt see it at WM will check in NAPA next. Was considering Kleen product for water removal on diesel tanks.

Vidaleya, gotem,bringem I like them too.

Will all you Texans please quit sending all this rain up this way? Just asking!

Tim... Mysery loves company..... We are about to float away this evening if the forecast is correct. Besides you need that rain so when the first hard freeze starts the changing of the colors Barb and I can come see. Is been a few years since you had a pretty color change.

Color change is on, they are predicting optimal viewing in central part of state by last week of Oct. or first week Nov.

You should see the view from one of my deer stands. It sets on the highest point on lease, of course all the pine groves are green but you can see the hardwoods that they leave along creeks and bottoms, and they are beautiful

Now you want to come up since I drained all my tanks. Lol Well let me know, if we don't camp we can at least visit!

I have never added any thing to the diesel fuel, but our winters are milde with a low in the high teens or low 20's for a night or maybe two, and the daytime warms up to the high 50's to low to mid 70's. I never felt the need to do it. I do get out about every 6 weeks and take it for a 20 or so mile spin.

I do as you did for winterizing. I'll blow out the pipes with 30# of compressed air, then add a little pink stuff to the drain traps. I do have to admit that a few years I never added anything to the drain traps. All of the holding tanks are drained. It takes no time at all to put in 1/3 tank fresh and 5-8 gallons in the black for traveling.

Ya'll have it a little colder up there so it may be a wiser decisions to add a fuel stabilizer. Method of choice for winterizing.

It's either that or Malt Scotch. A man has to do what a man has to do.

I doubt anyone will be bringing Vidalia onions as they are out-of season until around the end of May, first part of June. Could be someone from GA has a foot up on a pre-season crop.

Wayne - I did see one of the bootlegger shows on History Channel where the guy loaded white lightening into his freshwater tank and delivered to customers on his route.

On another note - the winters here are unpredictable - but we do usually warm up during the day too. Sometimes not. Last - I drained lines and emptied tanks early. Disconnected both sides of line to ice maker - and put pink stuff in both holding tanks with 5 gallons water and filled traps. HWH drained and bypass flipped. May go full route this year. There were no problems but occasionally we get hammered and this may be the next one. Another good reason to go south my friends.

We always go up to Queen Wilhomena Lodge and campground for Thanksgiving bou I think we may go up early to see the fall colors. One of many things we love about your state. We don't get that here in the Lone Star.
