I've been accused of thinking like a 10 yr old many times.

Rebuild

Good Afternoon, Frank, I still have to do my research on that system but I'm not doing it anytime soon. Bap, My idea exactly, sounds like your building something like from a Mad Max film . Popeye, Me Too , 10 year olds have some neat ideas. Well, in between the rain drops today I welded up and installed my ramp door latches, (figured I better put something on). Only thing is I need to relocate the ramp door pull handles.

Nice job Terry, looks good. A couple of stainless screws with a dab of white paint on the head and you will never know that you had to relocate the handles. Nice IRV2 sticker on the back, mine is on the back window, so like yours, one sees it while following.

Hi Frank, Yup, I need to do a little touch up where the handles were, I was putting the last nut on in the rain, I will change out the nuts I put on for stainless cap nuts, (I didn't have any handy). Did you get a campground in Binghamton yet? you can PM me if you don't want to put it up here. Have a Great Night All. Oh on the sticker I was thinking of putting my handle next to it so if anyone saw it they could comment on here.

Terry,
I haven't picked a campground yet in Binghamton, Looking at Beldin Hill Campground in Harpursville, but haven't made up my mind, am open to suggestions.

Good Afternoon, holy cats I missed the morning , got up this AM and left to do some chores and just getting inside to the computer. Frank, I'll talk to Eleanor about the campsites in Bing. and see if she has researched any. Bap, that's pretty cool . finished the ramp door latches today, replaced the nuts and bolts with stainless, and relocated the handles, now to clean up the area where they where.

Hey Frank, I checked out the Beldin Hill campsite, on the RV review site I have, they got good reviews. It is right off I88, its 97 miles from me here. the short term users look like they get pull thru sites.

Good Morning, Frank, Let me know what dates so I can make a reservation also . Looking forward to the first trip and meeting you guys also. Bap, when you support iRV2 the sticker is included, this a great info site and I like the interaction that's part of it. if you look at the last pic of the rear of the TH its on the lower left corner, click on the photo and it will blow up. Next up need to finish up some more small jobs, picked up all the filters, oil and belts for the TV need to get that done, maybe this weekend.

Terry,
We will be there arriving on the 21st and leaving on the 25th. Looks like Bobby might join us too. Now this gives you a solid set in stone date to get done instead of just a goal, so you can try the old girl out.
i will make my reservations this morning after 9.
Frank

Hi Frank, that's great . we are very close to "usable" not done but able to get it off the lawn . I pick up the rest of the E Track, hopefully tomorrow if it comes in to my supplier. Straps at the same time. Then its off for its maiden run, down to the Cat Scale at Pilot Truckstops. If all goes well we will be there with the TH.
