Are you able to keep your tanks and stuff from freezing?
I am parked in an RV garage at friend's. With the overhead door closed we stay in the 40's outside and the electric space heater keeps the inside at 70. Propane is shut off at the tank for safety.

We brought our own monkey safe apartment with us. RVers make good house guests. That's the reason we get invited to stay for months. Fish and most house guests tend to smell after 3 days.

Pics of 115s or the trac bar? I could start with 1, 2, 3 and go on or I could put 115 degree symbols on a couple pages. I know...! Set your oven for 115s and stick your head in it. That's about what it's like during an AZ summer. Add a blow dryer for a windy day. Like a blast furnace. I drove my first sand rail (VW) on a summer day. Liked to dry my eye balls out.

My 25 month old Smart Car toad has 5875 miles on the odometer. At this rate I figure it will last longer than I will. Of course, it could get smashed or crashed and insurance can buy me a new cheap car.

I don't think my bad back could take off-roading, anyway. Without that, what's the point of owning a Jeep?

Ok, ketsup time --one last post instead of several.

Dwayne & Shara -- head south! That's the best thing about fulltiming, NO winters.

Dave, I can attest to 115* temps. Went to a conference in Vegas and had to cross Las Vegas Blvd to get to the venue. All the things Dunner describes, especially the dry eyeballs, and more.

Elizabeth and Mary, congrats on the new ride. I had a car that color. It had to be REALLY dirty before the dirt would show. Loved it, but it also died in a crash not of my fault.

I don't wash my trucks. I just let the dirt fall off.

Just a heads up for anybody going to AZ. I mailed Jeff some off-road and "Explore AZ" magazines and booklets. They even have maps. Some crude; some detailed. I think they'll still work. They were just gathering dust bunnies on my bookcase. If you're nice, he might even share them.
Hi Mike

I haven't had a chance to go on any of those trails yet. But y'all can CHEER MICHIGAN STATE FOR BEATING OHIO STATE !!!!! 34 TO 24 they are going to Pasadena for the ROSE BOWL ....... YEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!

Flaggship1: not for some time. We got the Bathroom floor in and some of the back end rebuilt and Hubby's employer got in the way with over time and other silly stuff like that. I'm about half way done with the cushions the panels are done, just need the gussets/zippers cut and installed.

Only buffoons and idiots tend to be not kind. Our best friends 'Ali and Veronica' moved to Canada because as a country we are very open minded. They are looking for an RV and want to join the shenanigans too.

When you meet me you will definitely second guess my wife's taste. I drive a 20 year old Jeep and enjoy it immensely. Like mike I never was the thing. rain and branches keep the mud down to reasonable levels. It travels the bush quite a bit heading to or from fishing spots. It is decorated in Dark Forest Green and scratches of honour.

I'm pretty sure I could handle that project. I've done some upholstery and have then necessary machines. If you wish to discuss it further feel free to message me.

I've got this 1994 Ram 1500 that has zero door dings. I park judiciously.

Setting the scene:
I got up this morning and walked toward the windows, looking out in surprise.

Conversation:
"Snow!", I said.
[ Moderator Edit ], he said.
"We don't have to go anywhere", I said.
Silence.

"We can write the Christmas cards."
Silence.

Summary:
I like it. He...is ready to go waaay south.
