Good morning, 31* and west of me here in NY they are expecting 20" of what they call lake effect snow . That's in the Tug Hill region. Shouldn't get more than flurries here. Have a Great Day

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee was good this morning.
MK, nice job, change my city to NE Ohio if you would, please. That is my old home base which is no longer viable. Brooksville, Florida is our base from the middle of October to the middle of of April for the last few years. I will have to change my profile.
Lynne,
That is a unique rig, it would be neat to see what it looks like up close.
Gordon,
I'm with you on seeing older units being fixed and updated.
Terry,
It looks like the tuner was the problem, and I have seen them go bad too. I have no complaints, it worked good for over 10 years, and I don't think most people keep them that long.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Hello all. Scrawley Steve, I am a Ron from Round Rock, but I do not do horses. You could say horses do me. I tend to fall off horses. I do wood. Finishing a couple of projects for Christmas, I will put up a picture when complete. Good health to all for this Christmas season. And safe travels.

Morning Everyone;
Actually just a few minutes past noon here.

Spent the morning cleaning up the last of a small brush pile I burned yesterday. Just a pile of coals left this morning so I took the pitch fork and worked it around to get the last bits to burn. Do this every year. We manage to get a decent size pile of tree clippings, garden debris and leaves each year.

Nice to have that done as it is supposed to snow and blow this afternoon. Predicted to be about 4" with a stiff breeze so there will be some drifting. Looking forward to getting out there to push some of it around. Have the heated gear all ready to go so anticipating trying it out.

Decorated the Christmas tree this morning. Need a bigger tree or less ornaments! LOL. Bigger tree is not going to happen cause I would have to build a taller ceiling in the living room. And that is not going to happen. No way!

Hope you are all feeling well and traveling is easy without bad weather.

And right on time the snow starts. Lovely day sitting inside and watching the weather outside.

"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but in here it's so delightful."

Good evening, all. MK, great job on the spreadsheet. It will be a great "cheat" for me to us. 26 degrees here in St. Peters this morning. Makes the coffee taste better. I plugged in the ceramic heater in the basement as extra insurance for no water pipes freezing. I disconnected the city water hose and use the fresh water tank. Rumor has it we will give up and winterize next week. I hate that. The dealer has a list of things to fix before the (extended) warranty runs out. Lynne, isn't it great to see the light at the end of the w--k tunnel?

Evening,
Just finishing the last of the coffee.
We didn't get to leave on the 15th.
We did get to leave on the 16th. We left around 1:00pm. Found out since we are taken 40 across that Joes brother lives just west of Oklahoma City so we got there around 4 pm yesterday unloaded the concours, Karkaddy parked in the driveway. We talked for awhile and hit the sack. We were told we could stay as long as we wanted.
The winds were really rough all the way down, We got blown all over the place. Now know what's meant by "white knuckle driving" I used the cruise all the way just to help keep a steady speed.
The MH ran flawlessly except. Definitely going to look into SuperStears @ Henderson's , and new Bell cranks.
We drove to just west of Wichita and pulled into a Rest stop which was full but we found a place on the entrance ramp and hit the sack.
Got up on Thursday and hit the road. No winds until after 12:00pm.Then they started up again but not as strong. The gas prices are real nice on the wallet.
(Back to the ran flawlessly) I noticed a liquid spray when we stopped for the night and again yesterday when we got to Joes Brothers place and only when we stop. Not to-sure what it is. It doesn't look like Anti-Freeze it looks like a oil substance. Going to check it out in the am.
The weather man is saying that there's a good size storm coming I think we will hit the road on Sunday morning.
Sure didn't see many other MH's heading South, Saw 3 and one of those was heading North. LOL
No one talking on the CB, I know my radio works because I did a radio check.

I like the List Idea and thanks for stepping up to make it happen.

Harley1994,

I used to work at a place called Metal Sales before known as Gifford Hill.
I worked on the line that roll formed steel sheets used on Pole Barns corrugated steel.
Lloyd
Thanks for asking,

Good Morning, good to hear from you Tim ,stay safe hope the winds die down, and the "spray" is nothing serious. Bap, I'd rather put a metal roof on then shingles, seems to go faster. Have a great day All stay safe

My last name is Johnson, if you have the space.

We have a list like this on our Motorcycle Forum called "Emergency Contact List" We list our facilities too, should someone breakdown and need some help getting back on the road.

It's saved several International Riders bacon more than once.
My Guest Apartment House is a popular place for Riders needing a good bed and a hot shower.

Just for everyone's info, I have a large shop (full of tools and equipment) , 3 RV Hookups, and a dump station. Should anyone be passing though North Central Texas headed South.

Rhome is where the crossroads for Hwy 287 to Fort Worth and Hwy 114 to go to Dallas intersect. Hwy 114 goes right past the Texas Motor Speedway (NASCAR/ URL) Racecar Track. (Located at I35W and Hwy 114).



Which means if you are driving from Denver or Amarillo headed to Houston or Austin you drive right by my house.


PM me if you are headed this way. Melissa and I will even show you where the best hidden BBQ places are.

Weathers here in the high 30's this morning! No wind like yesterday! Should be a nice day to ride after it warms up a little.

Good Morning;
Another lovely day. Will be out plowing some snow once it gets to be daylight. That happens about 9. We got about 3 inches.

Tim: Glad you were able to get away. Something about the sense of anticipation and adventure once you get a few miles from home. We are always reluctant until we get that far no matter which way we are going. Hope nothing serious with the MH. Pray it is just something to tighten or re-clamp.

Off to prepare for battle!! Digging out the heated gear. First time I am going to use it - on the tractor.

Have a grand day.

Hi all yíall,

I awoke at 3am as usual for my morning nature call, turned on the space heater and it was working fine when I went back to bed. I awoke for the day at 5am to no power. I didnít want to annoy my neighbor by messing with it outside at 5am so I plugged a long extension cord into an adjoining unused power station and was able to make my coffee and fire up my space heater. I imagine the problemís something simple, probably a worn out 30amp connection or something like that. Problems that crop up out of the blue are nearly always something simple, or perhaps I should say obvious. Simple or obvious, whatever, thereís always something with these old RVís to provide a challenge.

A few more days and Iím off to LA in my Caravan to spend Christmas with my daughter. The timing of the drive is such that Iíll arrive in downtown LA around the afternoon rush hour dog-tired from already driving 850miles, heavy sigh. Ah well, cíest la vie! Itíll sure be nice spending Christmas with my daughter.

BTW Tim, when I first ran my RV on the interstate during my 2013-14 Grand Western North American Tour and Shakedown Journey Iíd replaced the shocks but hadnít done anything else. For the remaining 5, 217 miles she ran fine but Iíd always get hit by a push/pull from passing semiís. Cross winds could be tedious as well but werenít a severe problem. This past year, before my 875 mile drive from San Marcos TX to Sierra Vista AZ, I replaced the bushings in the sway bars and added rear suspension airbags to help compensate for spring wear. It all made a huge difference! No more push/pull from passing semiís and even though I ran into some especially severe cross winds in western NM and eastern AZ the RV was still easy to drive even at 70-75mph. I realize you have a GM chassis so you may have some different challenges from mine but just be aware that you donít have to put up with them, they are all fixable.

Steve
