Are you attempting to give some credence to your photography and thereby create a Revival??
Don't believe the propaganda posted around there you have to go further north to find the headwaters.

Lol..... This is close enough....

It actually saddens me to see my great river be this little and insignificant.....
My parents were born and lived blocks from the great river.... It is one of the widest points at Helena, Arkansas... Growing up we only had a ferry, there is a bridge since 1962. I remember a ferry for trains, named the Pelican.....

After a long wait, I'm told the battery is good but there is a small (3mA) draw which will take some time to track down. Justin, our service writer, knows about our problems with mice infesting the cabin air ducting and gives me a degree of concern as to the cause of the current draw. Anyway, he tells me he will give me a loaner (one of the perks of being a Genesis owner) and, since the only one available is, in his opinion, too small, he will give me a new Genesis off the lot. I had to undergo a bit of sales talk before I left and, no doubt, will have to suffer some more when I return. I don't know why but he really wants to buy our old car! I have to say that I am totally underwhelmed by the new car.

Re your problem with the Lincoln, have you considered fitting a Toad Charger? Then you wouldn't have to stop every two hours (unless, that is, you have other reasons to do so)

TTFN
Hi Martin,
I wouldn't think that 3ma would be detrimental to a battery unless it was very long term. I wouldn't be surprised if 3ma was just maintaining the instrument cluster. But hey, what do I know.

I got my car back today and the battery was bad. In retrospect my Battery Minder charger was hot when I had it on charging the battery for about an hour. It never go hot before so that was a probably an indication. I think the battery was failing for some time now. Anyhow the fixed it and no charge to me.

As for the Beemer - no way. It was the Beemer something 3 suv. Seats were uncomfortable and it didn't not even have a backup alarm of any type. Heck, Earlene's 2004 TC has a ding ding backup alarm. I think the Beemer is a youngster's car. I'll take my Lincoln MKX over the Beemer.

Yes, I have been wanting a charge line for some time now. I'm going to call the installer (Smitty) of my AF1 and see if he will do it. Just need to be home for a little while.

Noticed a seam separation on the big awning. I'll have it take off and take it to the Sail Maker up the road and have it re-sewn.

Keep your old car - it's paid for, right? Let Sue spend your money on goodies she wants. If you want something, just get her permission.

RVM 66 checking with in with an Announcement

We are finally ON THE RAINBOW FULL TIME! S&B is sold, officially presented the new owner with the SNOW SHOVEL (may I never see the accursed thing again) and the lawn mower (theirs was stolen 2 weeks ago). All the stuff is in storage and we are currently in a campground just east of Indianapolis IN. Mail is forwarded to my daughter's house for now. Still doing the w*rk thing for another month or so (tired of the job but like the paycheck), then we head Southwest for the winter.

Last few days of moving out were not much fun (and we dodged a lawsuit), but that's a story for another time.

WELCOME all the new people, was off line for several days and FINALLY caught up tonight...

Now to get Verizon to up our data plan, wi-fi here is not good...

Update on the current draw issue. I'm told 3mA draw is equivalent to leaving the radio on. The draw should not be greater than 0.3mA. to keep the clock ticking. Anyhow, it wasn't the mice chewing wires, they tracked the fault down to corrosion in a multipin connector, under the fuse box - we think it may be due to mouse pee as that's the area where they have been living. I'll send them a bill for the $400 it cost us.
I fitted an RVi Toad Charger myself to the Jeep. Good piece of kit and an easy install. You will, of course, need an extra wire in the umbilical if you don't have one already.
Shame about the BMW, I can just imagine you tooling around in that. We were glad to get back in our old Genny - just like putting on some favorite old gloves. Man, what a silky V8 that has!

That was at the BBQ Shack for Lunch, and then in the evening, Beethoven's German food... Steve left with boxes both times! He's hot on my tail in losing weight... no wonder, he can make a regular meal last for 2 meals! I took a picture of him with his new hairdo... but my phone died and when I went to find it and post I couldn't find it so I am thinking it didn't get saved... bummer... He's looking good! He breathes real good now too! More hugs to Annie! She's a trooper!

Hey Sue... it was indeed fried okra. Not house breadedd in my opinon but good. The Q was good and the house hot sausage was very good but not hot. Of course I can't be sure of that because I had the appetizer - Hot Chicharones (habenaro hot...!) Oh the humanity!

And while I typically don't sauce my Q, I did sample the 3 versions of house sauce. They were quite good, but I still prefer the naked Q. I would dip about anything else in any of them. Thumbs up for sure.

Triple D rating stands.

Chicharones
