RE: Travel Planner

Yeah, bummer. I was in the middle of my trip home, going a new way. . . I had it all planned out on the GS Travel Planner and boom. . . nothing. It kept directing me to the "pay" page and I am all paid up for another year. I could not get to where I had my trip planned, etc. Guess I won't be using GS for that anymore. If they can do that and not even know what's going on, it is too unreliable to use. Dale

RE: Interesting dog names

Knew someone with two Dobermans named Angel and Guardie. When she called them, it was "Guardian Angel!" :)

RE: Interesting dog names

I named her "Bella Rosa". OMG! She is so cute!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Such a sad time to check in and read. Dale so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, wishing you safe travels. So very sorry to hear about Richard. I sure miss his daily posts and beautiful writing, seems like such a kind man. I survived trail riding in Bryce Canyon and the ride there & back, I still hate heights. Getting ready to go to TN and ride our own horses. I have a new one, I sure hope he does good, he's a little spooky. Safe travels to all. Thank you, Shadow57. Good luck with that horse. I've never had one, but I love all animals. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

So sorry to hear about Richard. Strokes are definitely difficult. We believe my Mom had a second one after which she went downhill rapidly. But that was a blessing. Being in a body that doesn't work or respond is a bad place to be. Praying for Richard and Sue. Thank you Dernhelm for your condolences. Dale

RE: What now??

I am so sorry for your loss. I know what that feels like. One year ago yesterday I lost my husband of almost 50 years. We fulltimed the last 15 years of his life. We had just bought a home in Florida as he wanted to start snowbirding and using Florida as a base since our son lives there. We had 2 motorhomes. A 40 Phaeton diesel pusher and a 22' gas B+ (which we bought to take to Alaska). We had kept the little one because we loved it and planned to do some older state parks where smaller is better. I had always driven both, so it was no problem. My DH died on the road, so when I got his ashes back, I drove back to Florida and emptied the big rig out, cleaned it inside and out and sold it within a 6 weeks. I kept the little one. I joined a Women's RV group, the Florida chapter, hoping to continue camping with like minded individuals. A lot of members are widows who wanted to keep on camping like I did. It has been a good experience and a healing one at that. It is different being on my own for sure. But I am trying to continue to enjoy things we used to do together. I was not content to stay at home after 15 years on the road. I am currently in Indiana in my little rig due to the death of my Mom. Her funeral is tomorrow, then I am heading south once again. Best wishes to you. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Thank you all for your condolences. It's hard to lose a loved one and I've lost my husband and my Mom within 11 months of each other. Not what I wanted. But I know they are in a better place. Thanks again! Dale

RE: Still searching for info

Can you not call Newmar? I would think a tech could tell you what to look for or perhaps you may need to find a service center. We had a slide motor blow apart once and had to replace it. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We're so sorry Dale. I'm so glad you got back to Indiana to be with her before her passing and that it was comfortable. Our thoughts are with you in the coming days. Doug Thanks, Doug

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Mom died this morning. She had been in rehab and doing well, but things started to go downhill last week. After choking she refused food. They thought she had a bleed somewhere and wanted to take her to the hospital for a transfusion. She refused saying she did not want to prolong the inevitable. I don't blame her but it's still a hard thing to lose your Mom. She lasted a bit less than a week, but still appeared to be staying the same. She was filling with fluid and was on hospice for comfort. Her passing was very comfortable. She just quit breathing. I will be here for a bit. I'm the executrix of the estate so have some things to get done before I leave. Can't wait to get back to Florida and "my new normal." Dale

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

There is a bridge like this in Charlottesville, VA, where my daughter lives. It is near the campus of UVA. Every year there are vehicles that hit it and a motorhome or two as well. It is well marked on both sides and there are flashing lights and I think even a siren that warn you if your particular vehicle is over the height. Yet every year it gets hit. Daughter has been there a time or two where a lucky driver observed properly but could not back out alone. So the police do get involved and stop traffic and give the driver room to negotiate and get out. If a toad is on, it would involve disconnecting, then backing up far enough to take a side street. Very narrow roads in the heart of this ancient town. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I am still in Indiana. My Mom went on hospice yesterday. Things started going downhill a few days ago and she is now refusing to eat. She is a choking hazard so she can only have thickened liquids which she hates. But she will drink her coffee even thickened, but nothing else. At 96 it's safe to say all her parts are wearing out and with hospice, they now only give her meds for comfort and pain. I will be here for awhile yet. I hope the cold, cold weather stays away because I am living in MinnieMee and I don't know how to winterize her. . . never having planned to be in cold weather. But my water tank is under the dinette bench and I have heat tapes on my holding tanks. Hopefully Mom will soon be on her journey and I will be back home. Dale

RE: Certified RV Service Center in Indiana

Can you take it back to the factory located in Middlebury, Indiana, (northern Indiana)? Don't know if they do warranty work there, but that would be handy if they do. They list Lazy Dayz (Elkhart) on their website for warranty stuff. It used to be Total Value and is on CR 4 right next door to the Elkhart Campground, a handy place to land in Elkhart, Indiana. Dale

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

This happened to me last October. My DH and I fulltimed for 15 years in our 40' Phaeton towing our Ford Flex. We have a home now in Florida but were visiting our daughter in Charlottesville, VA. My husband had had serious heart problems for the past 22 years. He died while we were in Virginia of complications caused by one particular medicine he had been on for those 22 years. He was in the hospital at UVA when he died. He had always wanted to be cremated. My daughter was with me and our son flew up the next day from Florida. They went with me to the cremation society and we made arranngements for my DH. I stayed in the campground until I had his ashes back. Terry always handled the outside jobs, but I knew how to do everything. I dumped the tanks, filled the freshwater tank for the trip back home. For the past ten years, I had been the sole driver, due to his heart problems. The morning I left, the campground owner helped me hook the car up. I knew how to do it, but it was a 2-person job. He listened carefully to my instructions and we easily hooked up. I had made reservations at stops along the way so I had a pull-through every night so I didn't have to unhook/rehook the toad, although I could have. I strapped his urn into the navigator's seat and we drove back home to Florida. I talked to him all the way. When I got home, I emptied the big moho, cleaned it up and within 6 weeks of DH's passing, she was sold and on her way home with her new owner. I kept our small B+ motorhome which is in terrific shape and have been camping in it. At the present time I am in Indiana visiting with my Mom who had a stroke last week and camped in my sister's woods with 30 amp and water. We bought a MASA plan years ago, but I didn't use them to get back home since I knew how to drive my rig. My kids may have to use it for me! I had no problems doing what needed to be done, but I'm sure not everyone would have been able to. The big plus is I could drive my Phaeton anywhere and we always kept her in excellent condition. My DH did all the routine maintenance/batteries/tires, etc., and that I did not want to do. My little one is 22' and she gets me where I want to go and then some. I'm not towing anymore either. I joined a women's RV club and have been camping with the Florida chapter. I wasn't ready to give up the lifestyle. Although I'm not fulltiming, I've traveled about 7,000 miles this summer. I miss my DH terribly, but I cannot sit and mourn forever. He wouldn't have wanted that. And at 71, I still have things I wanna do and places I wanna see. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dale Great news on your mom! My wife has recovered from COVID. She had a mild case but she is still tired all of the time and her taste is only back to about 80%. She has been back at work this week. She felt good enough to take a weekend trip to the casino (after she tested negative last week) so I know she is feeling better! :) Burch Thanks Burch. Glad to hear your wife has recovered from Covid. My one niece up here in Indiana who refused to be vaccinated because they were all young and healthy, are now passing it around as we speak. Yes, positive for covid. Gave it to the kids grandma who was actually vaccinated, but still got sick. They prolly won't vaccinate now because they have "immunity." LOL They cannot go see my Mom. What casino do you go to? Tampa? Just wondering. I haven't been to one without Terry. Dale
