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

Looks like this hurricane is coming right down our throat. I have been out of town and now have to prepare the house. My mom is in a flood zone and my father in law live in a mobile home so I am going to have some house guests. The generator is gassed up and I have a ton of water and fuel. Isn't life fun?! The doggies even know something is going on. They are acting weird. Their 6th sense I guess. Burch I came over to my son's in Melbourne for a planned weekend. Now he won't let me leave. LOL I had picked up all my outside stuff, but I really didn't do anything else. It is what it is. I'm sure I will lose all my frozen stuff. I should have been more prepared, but I thought I would be back and have some time to prepare. My son was afraid if I went back home to do anything, I wouldn't be able to get back out. And I live in a manufactured house. He lives in a concrete house with a 140 mph roof that is tied to his foundation. So we will be safe. He has a generator as well. So we wait. I did think ahead and brought all my meds and all the dog's meds as well. Be safe, Burch. Dale

RE: A Lifetime RV Adventure

Just an FYI. We fulltimed for 15 years. . . until my DH passed away. . . on the road. I blogged faithfully for all those years. Not every day, but often and included pictures, etc. When we did Alaska, I blog every single day of the 79 day trip and included lots more pictures. My SIL read it faithfully and suggested that I preserve it in some way as he thought my grandchildren might sometime want to read about their grandparents' adventure. You can't print easily from the blog. . . at least not on blogger. I went to and set up my blog for publishing. They frequently run 40% off and I took advantage of that. I printed my 15 years of blogs in 7 volumes totaling over 1500 pages. I picked pix for the cover and the back and had a dedication. The books are printed with a table of contents. What a project, but I love the books and they are quite a conversation piece for visitors. Blog2print will also prepare a digital file you can download and put on thumbdrives and that's what I did to give each family member their own copy. I never knew one could do this. . . I just started looking for a solution and found it was possible! Dale

RE: Been a long time

Wow, I am so sorry for your health problems, Colliehauler. Thank God for good friends. I often fear what would happen if I had such health challenges as I am all alone now since my DH died. I am amazed at your posts. . . they are flawless and I would not expect that from a stroke victim, but it is great that you are communicating so well. So glad your collies are helping you to heal. You WILL get better and they are there for you. I will pray for your continued improvement. Keep us posted. Yes, Richard did pass away within the last year, I think. The info is on the Old Fella thread. Not much gets posted on that thread anymore, but occasionally something pops up. Take care and keep working hard for those collies. They want you well! Dale

RE: Looking for twin beds with night stand and 2 drawers

Have you looked at a Winnebago Ekko? Although technically it is a Class C, it's size is not much bigger than a Class B and has the twin beds you are looking for. I looked at the EKKO last weekend. It dos not have a black tank. It has a gray tank, but the sewer waste drops into a cassette which then has to be pulled out of the compartment and dumped, much like a porta potty. Didn't find that something I wanted to do. Dale

RE: Hazel Henderson -- 1945/2022

I am so sorry to hear of Hazel's passing, Lonnie. She was a lovely woman. I met you both years ago, I think at a Sweetheart Rally in Kerr, Texas. I remember her playing the organ or piano for a church service, if my memory serves me correctly. Loved reading your love story. Best wishes to you as you move on ahead without your beloved. I lost my DH almost two years ago and I know how hard it is. Dale

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

My son has a golden doodle, Lily, and she is as sweet as she comes. I just wish they would do some training because I cannot walk her. They have a fenced yard, so I don't have to walk her when I babysit. But she is a sweetie and so good to my granddaughter and loves my dog too. Dale

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

I had shots. . . first time back in 2002. Got me pain free for about 9 months. Then pain came back. Fast forward to 2016, pain got so bad I was having trouble walking. Tried shots again. They were totally different from the first time. Did absolutely nothing. I inquired about the procedure I had years before. Nurse said she never heard of such a procedure. ???? Decided to have surgery. I had a condition known as spondylolisthesis. I now have two rods, 6 screws, 2 cages and 3 fusions with implants. Best thing I ever did for myself. After 46 years of pain and limping, I am painfree and the limp is fading. I can't feel any of that in my back. I do know that most insurance companies will require the shots first, which is why I had them done the second time. I also read where a neurosurgeon is the best for the procedure because of nerves involved, etc. Dale

RE: Alaska - 2023

Sounds like a great trip. We did it in 2013. I would suggest purchasing Mike and Terri Church's book "Alaska Camping." It has routes, times, campgrounds, restaurants, sites to see, when you need to make reservations, etc. I bought it the year before and read the entire book, highlighting and tabbing pages for easy access. It was a treasure trove of information and there were many things we saw that we had only read about in their book. We also used the Milepost, which almost reads like a history book. Enjoy your trip. We traveled fewer miles per day, especially after getting to Alaska. It was a wonderful trip and we have many memories. Dale

RE: Mirror replacement

Dale, what's next-breaking down? Doug Not planning on anything Doug. The mirror was a casualty of a construction sign mounted on a large spring on a Jersey wall. A wind gust caused it to slam into my mirror arm. I was lucky that it quickly bounced back and I was passed it before it could hit me again. LOL The spare tire mount was likely an accident waiting to happen. It just pulled off the back of the motorhome wall where it was mounted. After 17 years, apparently the caulk was not doing its job and allowed some water intrusion, but we were luckly that it did not affect the entire wall, just the bolts through the plate. The awning, well. . . awnings wear out and the fabric delams. While in Elkhart this spring I had new sway bars and bushings put on. And we all know decals fade and crack. With all new ones on now, MinnieMee looks new! So far, nothing else has shown up. Soon I will take her in for an oil change and have my mechanic check some stuff. I am going to have the radiator flushed and new fluid put in. It seems to want to run warmer in these hot temps, especially when I have to sit waiting on wrecks to clear. My friend says it's nothing to worry about, but it's been 10 years since it was last done. So I'm having it done just for piece of mind. Gonna get her ready for hurricane season. I know that has already started, but she is road worthy if I have to bug out. Hope all are doing well! Dale

RE: Mirror replacement

On closer look, it was just the swing arm with the mirror that broke off clean leaving the support on the rv and the stud remaining. I guess it was just a clean break at the weld. Also I did find all the part stuff underneath. Future project. Do you remember, Scottiemom what the labor was on that? Mine may be different with a break off and me cutting the wire. Doug Well, I had a couple other things for my guy to fix. He works out of his home and I didn't get an itemized receipt. He had to remove the door panel and unbolt the old one, then put the new one in place. I don't think it was 30 minutes and if I was braver, I might have attempted it. I know if my DH was still alive, he would have done it himself. It came with good instructions and pictures on the process. But I had a spare tire remounted on the motorhome and an awning repair, so I didn't get an individual price on the mirror replacement. I could have ordered just the mirror itself which was broken, but I ordered the entire arm. It wasn't that much more expensive and it looks great now. Dale

RE: Mirror replacement

Velvac is still in business and you can order from them or Amazon, etc. I had to replace the driver's side mirror. I ordered the entire assembly for $184 and had an RV repairman put it on. Mine did not have power, which made it a tad easier. My mirror had a part number on a label underneath the mirror itself. I was surprise it was still there and visible, being the coach is a 2004. You may be able to talk with Velvac about a replacement that would not be as heavy, but I replace with the exact same item. Dale

RE: FDR state park campground in Georgia

Be sure to take in the National Civil War Naval Museum with its display of ironclads from the Civil War. It's in Columbus, Georgia, and is a really neat museum. We went on a search one year of ironclads and found this museum which is a real gem. You wont' be disappointed. Dale

RE: Looking for quick overnight near Richmond VA

About 20 miles south of Richmond, easily accessible from I-95 is Pocahontas State Park. We have been there before. Very nice wooded setting. Very quiet. We were there early spring and they had a freakish winter snow storm. Closed the park with us in it. Didn't want any more coming in, but we got to stay. Very attentive rangers. Love our stay! Dale

RE: Stalls While Driving

We had a fuel pump fail on a coach we bought that was older and had sat for a few years. Low miles. Our second trip we experienced it stalling out and stopping on the highway. We eventually limped off the highway and got some help. The mechanic said it was the fuel pump and that once the pump cooled down we could drive it for a few miles. Since it was over the weekend, we were able to drive it 12 miles to a campground. The mechanic ordered parts and we returned to him on Monday and he replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter since they were both in the fuel tank. They had to drop the drivetrain, so we asked them to dispose of the fuel left in the tank and put some fresh in it. This was all caused by the coach sitting for years with untreated fuel. For years after our trip where we took it to Alaska, we stored it for 11 months out of the year. We put Seafoam in the tank going into storage every year. Never another problem and I am still driving the same coach 10 years later. Dale

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

I am finally back home after my 2 1/2 month sojourn. It started with 2 graduations and then I found stuff to do till mid July when we interred my husband's ashes. My entire immediate family was there except for one niece. It was a lovely service, albeit short, which Terry would have wanted. He can now rest in peace. Dale

RE: Assessing RV Value

I use NADA guides. I have been looking for an upgrade coach and I have a 2004 little motorhome that is in very good if not excellent shape. I have been watching the prices on NADA for the last couple years through Covid and the numbers fluctuate a lot, but I think at any given time, they reflect the current market prices pretty accurately. Private sellers who bought during covid still want the moon for their coaches as they are trying to cash in on making a profit on a product that depreciates every year. Fortunate for me, I still have a good little coach that runs like a dream. So I continue to use her and perhaps one of these days, I will find the coach I want. When I do I will ask a reasonable price for mine. Dale

RE: Good Sam trip planner

Trying to plan a new trip. Cannot even create a new trip. When I try to call up one of my saved trips, it is totally blank. This is different than the log in problem that has been experienced. I am logged into the site and the planner, but everything I click on comes up blank. It shows my saved trips, but I cannot call them up. I thought perhaps I was "maxxed out" on my space in the program so I deleted some of the saved trips I had. Made no difference. Dale
