Charlene... Honey must have heard about Cloramae's troubles and had some sympathy pains for vintage old ladies... we left Thursday to go to a fly in down by Joplin MIssouri... didn't make it, had to stop in Butler Missouri, about an hour into our trip and seek assistance from a mechanic... seems the Distributor was fused to the control box and it needed a new control box... so we ended up boondocking in the mechanic's parking lot for the night while the stuff he squirted in there to help it loosen up worked it's magic... it's always something with these old gals... just like humans. We finally made it to the Fly in and Got a couple flights in with all the other powered parachutes... was something to see around 40- 50 flying about all at the same time. Sure had to keep our eyes open! Anyway, Honey brought us safely home with no more troubles other than her usual hiccups. (Which we know about and know how to work around). Hope you have your Clora Mae back already.... seems like you are having a real hard time getting a mechanic to look at her and do something for her.

Magnesium has been me friend 2x per day for a long time. And if I forget them, ohhhhh Nelly!
I can see where magnesium oil would effective quicker, and in a more systemic manner.

Yep!
Dennis, all of the “Easter egg hunts” will be yours.
As to what to keep, I weighed actual use of the item/device against how often I would really care. Really!
The other side was “is it sentimental?” If yes, I have found that I am always too busy to consider seeing it while at the daughters house. If fact, I didn’t even think of it. Nola and I were too busy creating new experiences and memories.

When Mart told me about it, the mad spray she suggested really helped.... now the cbd oil seems to have banished the leg cramps which I have had ALL of my life too....

Hello fellow Muties,
Just to add Dave, what also helps muscle cramps, and it's cheap, is tonic water. It contains quinine. It really does work.


Looks to be a grand time in MI, wish we were there too.

YES. I drink some also. I haven’t tried it yet, but imagine a little GIN or other adult beverages might give it a little kick.
About to take another cruise to next stop - then final day to GC late Monday.
Save a little fun for us
Thanks for the latest pictures of Mackinaw.

How many tractors were in the Semitruck Parade!

Too Many!

How many of the trucks blew their air horns at the mutant ladies?

All of them!

How many strings of beads did the mutant ladies accumulate?

What happens at the GC stays at the GC

Drive safe, don't have any quinine but I'll look around for something medicinal to treat you with. I did go through Kentucky you know!

Any chance that's why we quit?

Sorry you had to go through that!

It's not like I'm jealous or anything. Actually, I feel pity for everyone parked or sitting near youse guys and gals. I'm sure Mackinaw City will never be the same after this Mutant invasion. Have some extra fun for those of us sulking elsewhere. Thanks for the PoP. More please!

Wayne, hope this helps! Check your PM.
Note: the 11 inch measurement would likely be less, more like 7 inches with the coach aired up. Let me know if you need that exact, and I'll air up and post another pic this evening.
