Ron, tried to order Shiner Bock last year at a bar near Chicago and the bartender never heard of it.

Hi Lynne,

Just read your post. My rig HAD a signal booster that the prior owner used everywhere. He kept it since it was not applicable to our Sprint IPhones. It seems that's the ticket, to get a booster that is specific to your phone.

Hi Bap/Jeff,

Do you have any pics posted of your TT's as they get rebuilt? I would enjoy seeing some of them.

Thanks!

Evening all!

100* here today, at 6:27pm it has cooled off to 97*!!! Ugh!!

I have 3 big 20" high speed fans mounted on the walls in the barn. They create a good breeze in there. It is manageable,,, but soon as you step outside the heat hits ya!

Gordon, that explains it. You took both!

Good Morning Gang,
Another big Thunderstorm last night (or should I say this morning, as it was after midnight) Hard rain and lots of close lightning and thunder. The good thing is that with all the moisture and then heat, everything is really green. Grass cutting has been relly slowed down due to the construction moving to a different area of the park, I am chicken dodging all the big equipment with the zero turn. lol.
Lynne,
I agree with taking it all the way to bare metal, then treating surface with a good Rustoleum paint. I am using light grey primer on the doors, followed by 2 coats of outdoor house paint, and I will also repaint the surrounding trim, so that all the colors match. I have almost 8 hours stripping the paint on the 1 door so far, and I have a couple more hours to finish it, there was quite a few layers of paint on it, and lots of rust underneath.
Ron, Glad that you are back at your sisters.
Havee a great day all,
Frank

The fallen tree was removed from the roof of the Winnie yesterday and it appears that the only damage was some minor scratches. The rear frame appears to have withstood the weight of the 6" diameter limb with no problem. WHEW!!

Goooodmorning all y’all!!!

This talk of Shiner Bock brought back some fun memories. When the first Texas Roadhouse chain restaurant opened by me when I lived in Illinois I went in and ordered a hamburger. When they asked what I wanted to drink I said with a very straight face “I’ll have a Lone Star Beer, of course!”

“We don’t sell Lone Star Beer”.

In a very loud voice I said “What! You call yourselves the Texas Roadhouse and you don’t carry Lone Star the national beer of Texas!”

By this time the manager had come over and I expressed my outrage to him.

Finally, I said “Well I can’t tell you how disappointed you’ve made me. I guess I’ll have a Shiner instead. You do have Shiner Bock don’t you?” Which of course they’d never heard of either. In their defense their hamburger was very good.

I did make it up to that manager, about a month later I took a trip to Texas and when I returned I gave him a bottle of Lone Star Beer.

It’s probably just as well they didn’t have Lone Star, it’s not very good beer. BTW, I found Shiner Bock in both Anchorage and in Banff. However, my new love in over-the-counter beer is Deschutes Brewery’s Obsidian Stout, I’d had their Black Butte Porter, which was good, but their stout is fantastic!!!

I’m learning that I’m even more of a weather wimp then I ever imagined. It’s dawned on me that I’ve been traveling the country trying to escape crappy weather. It’s down to Arizona in the fall to escape dreary overcast winter weather. In the summer Arizona’s too danged hot! So off I go trying to escape the heat. I took a ride on my motorcycle yesterday afternoon and at 95 degrees it was like riding with a hairdryer in my face, YIIIIICK! No fun at all. I want to visit Ruidoso, so I’m glad I’m heading there this August but I think my Idaho, Montana and Port Angeles plan for next summer is lookin’ really good.

Now if I can keep from getting depressed this afternoon by the oppressive heat, maybe, just maybe I can get after my trip photos.

I’m glad all y’all are getting on with summer festivities!

Steve

The heat wave is here too ! 80-90* I know not like at Lloyd's but pretty warm for upta the Maine coast OH AYUH !

Lynne
Wilson makes some good ones.

H-12 Mike
Lucky day !
Did you buy some lotto tics ?

Steve
Flagstaff is very nice in summer.
Az is the best state I know where you can find the perfect temp by just going up or down in altitude .......Nevada a close second.

Utah and Northern New Mexico are nice summer places too (not so much in winter though)!

Rvpopeye, I looked into Flagstaff and may spend a summer there if I can ever find a RV park with reasonable rates. One park I called wanted $600/mo plus electricity and a 5 month commitment. Sorry, I can't do that, even if I could afford the $600/mo the 5 month commitment ruins it for me. However, Flagstaff is a beautiful area.

Steve

Steve;
I think there may be lots of suitable areas in Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota that will meet your criteria. I really like the Montana around Great Falls south to Idaho Falls for scenery. We pass through there a couple times a year and it really looks grand.


I am sure there are lots of places other than those which would also be great.

$600/month ,,,in that case......you can Boonie camp in the National Forests for free ! Two weeks at a time then move to another equally amazing spot..
Then when it starts getting too cool , slide on down to Q and hit the LTVAs
