Good Morning, Frank, that's 1/2 plate, figured it was heavy enough, . there will be side plates extending down outside the frame rails for a bumper pull hitch, (to be made yet). Rail, I'm hoping that by adding a little extra weight that the TV will ride better. Weather is very windy today and raining right now, (better than snow).

Terry,
Yeah, I would guess that the plate is thick enough.

Good Evening, I was going for the weight, rides better that way, (not really but it can't hurt). Today was a wash cold rain and high wind, just not pleasant working conditions. Have been receiving parts that I will be needing at some point. Will be picking up the metal for the body soon.

That's the same problem I have ...
I've spent too many winters in the warmth of the s+sw ,,,,now I can't cope with anything below 60 (more like below zero here in Maine) and any form of frozen precipitation !

Took a day and I am loving the cooler weather. Put on my coat, hat, mitts, scarf, sweater, shirt, t-shirt, long johns, pants, and ski doo suit. Drats now I have to go to the washroom!!! LOL

Weather here is OK. Had a bit of snow today but it looks really clean out in the back yard.

Gordon I have a picture in my head of you looking like Ralphie in the Christmas Story movie. Don't put your tongue on the flag pole!

Yes Frank, once you get South, you adapt really quickly. I do miss playing in the snow. Used to love to ride our Snowmobiles in the Adirondack state park and such. Don't miss having to go to work in it.

Around here (and I am not kidding) if they forecast snow, complete panic sets in, nobody comes to work, all the milk and bread is gone, and even if you know what to do you stay off the roads. There are many, many unsafe drivers that you can tangle in.

Good Morning, When in the Corps, I was in warm climes my whole tour, (sometimes it was too warm, if you know what I mean), and I still ended up back here in the north but I so much want to get down south now. Lloyd, I remember more than once while on base in Parris Island and Camp Lejeune that the base would close down for a little snow and I mean little 1" or so then they start closing roads crazy.

I think I prefer the cold more than the heat. I can always dress for the cold but after a while you run out of clothes to take off in the heat. Not to say that 70 - 80 degree weather is bad. I like that as well.

Having had 65 Christmas's in the snow the two we had when we stayed in Yuma were too brown. Great people in the park but Christmas lights hanging on a suaghero or palm tree is not the same as lights on a pine tree. Sure felt a lot more Christmas spirit when we landed in the snow.

Dont forget the golf cart parade where everyone decorates their golf cart My in laws live in Surprise at Happy Trails and I know they do this assuming more of these parks do as well.

I have never lived anywhere besides the PNW so I can't imagine not having the green trees, snow, and cooler temps for the Xmas season.
