Hey Terry, Prayers being sent for your MIL. What a drag, and then snow on top of that Bummer.
I hate to say it but 86 degrees today currently 65.
Windy.

Thanks again for your lessons on Fiberglassing. You and others gave me the courage to try doing my repairs my self. Thanks I think it turned out okay better than when I started.
Thanks again,
Tim

Terry,
Nice job on the frame. You can keep the snow, 45* here this morning, but going up to around 80* this afternoon, then upper 50's for lows and low to mid 80's for highs, so only a couple of days cool lows. Very low humidity and sunshine for most of the week.
Tim,
We all knew that you would do a good job on the fiberglass, you just needed a little self confidence to get started.
Frank

Terry, nice job on that frame repair. Winters are so hard on vehicles. Had a shop in my younger days and winter was always good for business.
Right now we are laying out plans for our Thanksgiving trip up north to see kids and grandkids. Planning on taking 3 days to get to Chattanooga then store the MH at the campground and drive the toad the rest of the way. Reverse coming home. We should only have to drive 200 miles or so coming and going. The trip from Chattanooga north is about 600, so doable in 1 day each way. I don't like to push to have to get somewhere anymore.

All stay warm, we are enjoying our "cool" weather here.

Jim.

Good Afternoon, Thanks guys on the frame, now I have half the body in repair panels to cut and weld in , JR, yup winter was good for business, even in the bike shop because that's when we would do all the major work on the bikes that no one wanted to do during the summer. Sounds like a nice trip you have planned. Working here on everyone's vehicle to get ready for cold weather, plus closing up one area, (paint booth) and getting the main shop so we can work in it.

No snow here last weekend and no trees fell on the rig , so
None predicted for this week either .
Temps high 40s days and low 30s nights............
I'd feel better if they just didn't talk about it!

I wish I was headed for Yuma with the rest of the reverse migrants but I have BTDT many times so will warm myself with the memories!
Yeah , that's my plan .

Terry,
And to think that you thought that you were done with the body work, lol. The only difference now, is that you can pick and choose what jobs that you do, and you don't get paid.

Good Morning, Frank, yup this job coming up is one that I don't have to feel rushed to do, plus it's in a nice heated shop. Popeye, nope I won't plow this time of year (unless we got buried), like you said we'd be bulldozing the lawn and driveway, so until we get lots of freezing temps plowing is very limited. today we actually put the TH in the "barn" might be just in time tomorrow might get some more snow

When we were home and clearing the drive way we used to "drive the snow down" until we had about an inch packed so we did not dig holes or shove the gravel to the side.

Sad to put the trailer away but nice knowing it is out of the weather and the freeze thaw of the snow. We had snow before we left. I shoveled about 6" of snow off of our son's trailer prior to putting it in the shed when we took the coach out.

Good Evening, TH is put away, along with a buddy's we travel together alot and this place is right next door to him. Gordon, we might be packing our snow tomorrow, not sure how much we will get. We added a Cold Air Intake to the PU yesterday, should give us a little extra. We pulled the car trailer over to where the TH and Tot'r was so I could get the PU back home easily.

Guys, just don't miss the snow you are talking about. We have had some of our best weather the past few days. 55 overnight and 75 during the day. It has now warmed up again to 85.


The weekend of the 4th of November we are meeting up with a bunch of Thor owners from central Florida. Never been on motorhome get together, always been bike events. Should be something new and fun.

I let you know how it turns out.

Looks like a wonderful storage spot for the winter.
