Tim, I used a Corning Ware percolator for many years, the one I used had a light on the top that came on when it was done! 7 Min's is about right! They get the water hotter, which makes the coffee the best! Enjoy! Rail!

Good mornin all. Coffee/cocoa good this morning. A travel day, just 200 miles. Onward out of Texas to Woodward Oklahoma. Check-in is not until 6pm at Ft Supply Lake COE, but they said I could get in early. Will stop for diesel and supplies at WallyWorld in Woodward. Have a great day all.

Tim - if you bought the clear glass percolator you have a classic. I broke the lid on mine years ago and refuse to give up the pot. If I find a replacement lid I will get back to using it.

I agree it does make the best coffee.

Morning Everyone;
Completed my weed spraying yesterday. Now to wait to see how well it works.

Not much to do today so will be likely working on the MH polishing. This feels like a day off.

Hope everyone has a great day.

^^^ Gordon no clear glass, this one is white I think Porcelain with a glass top where it perks. Soo good I might put the drip in storage. Only down fall is it only makes 9 cups and I drink way more than that.
I'll make sure it's on board for Yuma. Ya remember the flowers we had there? Joe planted them in the rose garden and they are doing well. I'd love to bring some grass but then I'd have to mow it, or cut it with a scissors.

Currently 68
Percolator brewed Coffee YUM
Sunny no wind lake is calm.
Happy B-Day to my self made it another year.
Going to go fishing this afternoon as a B-Day present.
Still not sure how long we will be here but I am okay with being here.
Bob got a burning permit so we are burning the barn wood that he can't put into a dump plus its 75 bucks a ton. We can burn 6 PM to 8 AM. I told him that when I'm doing a all-nighter and can't sleep I would go out and burn. LOL We have a water hose at the fire pit incase it gets going to big.

This is kind of a double post but thought I would post anyway.

We went to Manards and I dropped Joe off and "I went to park the 64 and saw this in the far reaches of said parking lot. So cool I can't upload more pic's so will try another post. Its a old International School bus, he dropped the sides 3 feet for basement storage, he has a pull out grill, the ac unit slides out of the other side just like a slide does. He gave us a tour and it was so cool all led lights. The taillights were so neat chromed Leds all out side lights were LED"s except headlights but they were chromed also.
The door is welded together and opens as a solid door. He belongs to the NHRA Association. The interior is like a garage with a Candy apple Red painted tool box every thing is metal no wood cabinets sleeps 4 adults. I should have taken some interior pics but didn't want to push my luck. The bathroom/shower is solid made with 1" thick plywood walls.
A really nice guy and his MH is so cool. I told him about irv2.com and hope he comes and shares his talent.
Last Pic is from my chair looking out @ lake. Its a distance too the lake there are 20 steps between each light. Just got done mowing. Thanks for the percolator instructions.
Everybody have a great day I'm going too!!!!.
Those on the road be safe.
Tim

Good morning friends.

Overall things couldn't be better well I could be in Woodward. Unfortunately I'm not and won't be for a couple more weeks.

Sorry I'm going to miss you bud. Not really much to do at Liberty Farms right now we need to raise some more money so we can start building. Don't want to invest too much money in it at this point if we're not going to be able to get something up and running. If all else fails we can donate the funds to another veterans charity. We'll see what happens over the next year.


Lots to do to get ready for the next run to Woodward. Will be there for a few weeks this time so as to get the shop building up and RV pad for the Magna. Then will head back to Seattle for the last load.

Patty should have flooring for the part time S&B pocked out by then. Glad she wants prefinished Hardwood. I'm not up for another thousand square feet of tile. Especially in a house I'm not going to live in.

That's about it for now

Good Evening Gang,
Tim,
Nice pics, both of the conversion and of the fishing hole, no wonder you try to spend a lot of time there. Hope that you had a wonderful birthday.
Bap,
We will make it there one of these days, I promise.
Jay,
Hope that everything goes well for you and that the money starts rolling in.

Went down the Rainbow river this morning about a 3 to 4 mile float, no alligators, but lots of turtles, fish and birds, there even was an otter. Beautiful spring fed clear water, you could see the bottom if there wasn't any plant life growing. Kayak worked better, but still not right yet, I'm learning as we go, found out when we got back, that I didn't have enough air in the bottom piece, that's corrected, so next week should be even better.
Have a Great Evening All,
Frank

Good morning everyone! Coffee was good today!
Tim, I sold the two percolaters I had in my sale, and now wish I still had them! Nice view, enjoy! Happy Birthday, by the way!!
Jay, I am glad you got the CC, and you will enjoy it for sure! That manual Cummins turned up to 300 hp. will do a fine job, and you can have them turned up a lot, up to 400 hp., if you so desire! My "96" is set at 275 hp. and I had plenty of power running all the way up to upstate NY from Florida, but was not loaded heavy or pulling anything! It got 9/10 MPG the whole trip, and it is probably about the same weight as yours. It is 38' also!
That being in the same family for all those years, means a lot! Mine was the same, so to speak, it was owned by two best friends for all but 3 years it was owned by the original owner.
Gordon, I hope it does not rain for a few days, so your spray does good!!
Frank, get that Kayak dialed in before the gators get ya, remember, we eat the gator, not the other way around!!
Ron, nice pic! Your baby looks good with her new paint!
Bap, you will have to put some of your earlier pic's in a folder, to free up some space!
Lloyd, you are almost there!! 2 more days!!! Woo Hoo!!
Everyone have a great day!! Rail!
