Good Afternoon, Bap, That's always nice sometimes to be left alone to do things and have a surprise when the other half comes home, (I mean other than dirty dishes ), Been doing a few small things that I've been putting off doing the major projects, put a bottom in the cabinet on the wall between the garage and coach area, also a piece of diamond plate on the threshold going into the garage. All stuff that needs to be done at some point.

Hello Everyone;
Took a bit of time to catch up on all of the activities and progress. Nice to see the finishing being done.

Terry - We installed a quick connect to the vapor on the propane and carry a 40 gallon tank on the truck. I also have a liquid valve so can fill the bottles but like to just use the quick connect when the truck is sitting. I do not like dealing with the bottles.

BAP - good to see you back on the site. Was missing you. Sounds like you are going to get some time without adult supervision so you can do what you want and have a good time. Does not hurt that your tasks will please the supervisor - LOL.

We are currently in Montrose CO for a Retreads rally. Traveled 2160 miles so far. Stops in Havre, Cody, Silt CO, Canon City CO. Rear bearing went out of Janets bike but through a series of dealers we ended up at an excellent dealer who was able to fix it in less that 24 hours at a very reasonable price.

Signed up for a couple rides but we went on some on the trip down that will be hard to beat. Lots of very friendly people here.

Okay Terry, your cover is blown!!!!!

I am at the wife's annual family reunion in Gettysburg. They all have rv's, and this is the 25th year we have done this. So, sitting around and enjoying a little Jack, I start talking about your rv project, and that you know Gallupville,,,,,, and dang, no less than 6 family members in know you!

And get this everyone, they say Terry IS A NICE GUY! And Elennor is EQUALLY AS NICE!

Small world!

Good Morning All, Bill, I put the CG in my favorites! Bap, always nice to know someone from the area to recommend spots. Gordon, Good to hear all is going well, too bad about the bearing on Janet's bike good to know it was fixed fast, so not too much of an interruption. Have fun, ride safe. Lloyd, tell all hi and thanks, humbling for sure. This part of upstate ny is a nice place where your ether related to someone or you know them. Rail, Thanks. Have a few things to do today then back at the TH gotta get it done . Have a Great Day!

Terry, Elennor

I've enjoyed watching the progress, I'm a little envious of the time you get to spend working on your trailer - I try to get a day a week on my restoration.
I'll be glad to get top finished and ac units hooked up so I can work out of the heat that we have here in Florida this time of year.

Me and wife still work full time so our spare time is very limited - we also have 6 grans with 2 more on the way. I bought our coach knowing it needed work but figured we could see if we enjoyed it enough maybe we would upgrade closer to retirement.

After watching what you have done I feel my repairs to almost be minor. Also see than I could make it as nice as I want for a fraction of what a newer coach cost.

If your ever down this way be sure to give me a heads up (only about 30 mins north of Panama City beach) Thunder Beach is growing there every year. I was raised up riding Japanese bikes, I've got a shed full of them. Last count 7 that run and 3 parts bikes.

Keep up the good work, looks like you're almost where you can relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor

Great job - pabell

Here's a shot of 1976 Kawasaki 900 in my collection

Good Morning All, Popeye, I'm a former Marine and I ride a Harley I'm not supposed to be nice ! Bill, I have drove semi's down thru those areas but the interstates don't tell the story, I will make it . Lloyd, I copy all the suggestions that you guys make I feel that's the best way to find the nice areas, and campgrounds. Pabell, Thanks! I think restoring these ole units is very cost effective and you can do them anyway you want. I will certainly let you know if I get down that way, I love to see what others are doing to their RVs. The old Japanese bikes are great, alot of us got our start on them. That Kawa 900 was a fast bike in its age. I had a 500cc 2 stroke that at the time thought was quick.
