Hi All!

Hi MK, my tractor is a 4510, 4wd. It has been a great tractor. I think it is like 42 horse,,,, but with 4wd it will really pull. I have a handful of implements for it, box blade, bush hog, landscape pulverisor, backhoe, loader forks, and a pretty cool little device I created myself that will bury a wire or pipe in the around 24" as the tractor drives along. I used the tractor A LOT when we built this place.

Tim, hang in there. Interesting the nurses had you walking, even though it wasn't approved. Get well soon!

Daughter came over this evening with her husband, she is doing well. Walking with a back brace, looks good. Long story short, we planned a trip, going to head out with our RV's to Perryville, Kentucky and attend the cival ware battle re-enactment. I have never been to one.

BAP, is Perryville near you?

L.

Good Morning Everyone! Coffee was very good today!

Lloyd, Bap lives about 150 miles or so east of Perryville, off of I-64 E.
Yes the pic of the JD tractor reminded me of the Kabota I had out on the farm, it was 4wd too, and a 4 cyl. diesel, looked to be about the same size! I had the front loader/bucket and a 6' belly mower! It also had the 3 point hitch! Between it and the Wood's ZTR 52" mower, made quick work mowing the 2 1/2 acres! And the front bucket was very handy digging out my semi and trailer in the winter time! I also had a smaller JD 212 that was a dedicated snow blower, had the wheel weights and chains, for the little 2" to 4" snows! In fact, I still have it, letting my X-FIL use it.

Steve, glad you are done with the evil clown car, and you will always have the scar to remind you of that experience! Have a safe trip back to the "Land of Lincoln"!

Tim, do what the Dr. says, and if you have to delay your leaving for Yuma, so be it! Great job on the smoking thing!

Lynne, what I love about camping, it is "Forced Relaxation"

HappyWander, I found Mona on Craigslist, in Florida! I also had RVTrader.com and RVT.com set with my search settings of price, diesel, (fuel), and Class A as what I was looking for (type), also, I was looking all over the country, but mostly Florida, Texas, Arizona! You have to be willing to travel to get that great deal! Welcome to the group!

Gordon, you are "getting short" as Tim "learned" me! Frost already!

MK, I had the mulching blades on the Woods ZTR, and they did a great job, I went ahead and bought two sets of 3 blade's and always had one at the sharpener's ( a close friend of mine's shop ) I had to use a come-a-long to get the deck up on that mower, where I could change out the blades! That Woods deck was made out of 1/4 to 3/8's plate!

Frank, hope the table saw goes back together easy for you! Enjoy the laid back day!

Just counting down the days till we are off on our next adventure, Japan!

Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Good morning!

It seems this never happens here any more,,,, but we are having a nice steady rain! Not a flash flood! I just mowed yesterday,,,,, the cycle continues!

Back to work on the coach this morning, the a/c system leak turned out to be the schader valve on the low pressure side. Replaced it and pulled a vacume on the system, still holding now 5 days later. Ready to re-charge. Maynot much need it as a/c for the rest of the year, but it makes the defroasters more affective.

Tim? How are you?

Rail, thanks for the info. Guess I will still be a long ways from BAP. We leave here next Thursday morning,,,, going to spend a week even though the re-enactment is only on the weekend.

Have a great day all!

L.

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good this morning. We had a pretty strong thunderstorm last night with over an inch of rain and some wind. We don't see any damage, but will check a little closer when I get out and about.
Rail,
No problems on the saw, I put most of it back together yesterday, I took a lot more apart than needed, but I cleaned up a lot of saw dust that had accumulated over the years.
Lloyd,
Hope that the A/C problem is solved for good. Have fun at the reenactment, those things are a blast.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good Morning;
Yes we are 'getting short'. Starting to decide on mustgoes. Things we must eat or take out to take with us. Started the fridge a couple days ago. Janet made a big batch of antipasto and some of that will be out there as well.

Garden is off except for some beets, carrots, swiss chard and beans. Been covering the beans every night to see if I can get one last meal from them. Getting close. Supposed to be nice and warm today so keeping fingers crossed. Cooling off later in the week.

I now have tractor envy. I think I will go out and polish mine. Won't take long!! LOL

Everyone have a great day.

Goooodmorning all yíall!!!

I awoke at 4am all stuffed up, Iíd forgotten to take my allergy pill last night. Local honey cured about 95% of my allergy problems but lately that miserable 5% has been bothering me. Still, itís not nearly as bad as it was before I began putting local honey on my daily breakfast cereal.

Today Iím going to give my trusty Caravan a needed brake job. I purchased the parts yesterday for both front and rear brakes. Itíll be nice working on something Iím familiar with for a change and not the Evil Clown car. If I still have the energy Iíll be changing the oil/filter and lubing my home-on-wheels as well.

Itís good to read that most everyone who posts here is doing well, though I worry a bit about Tim and his need to stay on his feet when he shouldnít. Tim, itís not a good time to be dancing, stay off those feet so you can heal! No Tim!

Steve

^ ^ ^ Ya-HOOOOO we are behind Gordon AHA no escape Gordon and Janet.
I agree it will be nice to meet you and the Mrs. At this rate we might all Meet and Greet before the Meet and Greet...
I've seen two of the Doc's and got the okay to go home today just waiting for the infection Doc to come and give me his blessing.
I am to stay off it for 2 weeks and then go in to have the stiches removed and then we are out of here. I promise I will stay off the foot. I don't want to come back at least until the nurses are off Strike. (just kidding) I've had to remind the nurses to give me my meds.
It was 49 degrees this morning and all I have is shorts to wear home...
I used to drive a Kubota 4 wheel drive with a 4 foot broom to use for sidewalk snow removal at the place I used to work at. That thing went thru anything.
Hoping to get out of here soon.
Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers,
Those on the road be safe.
Tim

We can meet on our patio for coffee.

Glad you are heading home Tim. Ask Joe to keep an eye on you and tell us if you don't stay off of your foot. I know you are a high energy guy but if we have to yell at you we will. LOL

This is going to be fun. Looking forward to the western gathering of the Good Morning gang!

Thought for our first year at this, we would try a stop in Quartzsite on the way. We hope to connect with some others we can boon dock with there.

Good morning everyone! Coffee is very good today

Lloyd, don't forget your passports for the trip's across the border for Med's, dental, eyeglasses, and the FOOD!!!!!
Sounds like a real good time!!

Tim, be very carful with your foot, and no!!!!! Ok, maybe, just a little one legged It is your left foot? So you can still drive?

Everyone that is out on the road, be safe! Everyone have a great day!

Rail!

Morning,
currently 54,
Free at last,
Although the coffee was okay at the hospital it tastes a lot better at home.
Got out late yesterday afternoon, stayed in the MH last night and had too turn on the furnace this morning. Sooo great to be home.
Something is going on with the Fridge, Joe turned it off while I was gone, it wouldn't stay lite. Happened after we got the 3 inches of rain. I'm going to try it after it gets light out. Thinking maybe the thermocouple, I'm hoping, can't go without a fridge. Hasn't worked on electric since we got her.
Royal Dometic RM100
Then back to the couch with foot elevated. Man 2 weeks staying off it and doing that I'll be ready to go.
I'll be fine too drive, might even let Joe drive,
Maybe we can practice a few times before we go, he doesn't like too drive it.

Lloyd we were going to try boondocking @ Quartzsite last year but didn't have the nerve.
Sure liked the tents, spent to much $$$ but it was fun. We still didn't get to see it all. Might even go back for a day. Yes a lot of rocks but tons of stuff for the MH & lots of stuff for the tummy.
Just a FYI there is a ton of parking behind the tents, don't bother trying to park where everybody goes, after the bridge at the Stop and go lights take a right then a imitate right and follow the road behind the tents.
Gordon how do you like your lounge chairs? I found them on sale and am thinking about getting 2 ?
That's about it from here,
Those on the road be safe,
Tim

Hi all!

We had some good rain here last night, around 11pm. Lasted a good while.

Rail, yes. we were discussing yesterday getting into town to start are passport process. I had one many years ago which is expired, Debbie has never had one. Anyway, we plan to have them for the trip, and will need them in 2018 for the Alaska adventure.

The A/C on the coach is recharged. Was working good end of the day yesterday. The new Schrader valve fixed the leak. It is still warm during the day here, high 80's yesterday we will probably need the A/C next week on our trip to Kentucky.

Tim, I hope all is going well. That infection scared me just in how fast you described it moved. Be very careful and as others said do everything the doc says. Looking forward to meeting you in Yuma in 123 days!!!

L.
