RE: Natchez Trace

What is the Trace? The Natchez Trace is a road built on an old Indian Trail that runs from Nashville, TN, to Natchez, MS. We used to run it every year when we would go to Red Bay, Alabama, for service on our Tiffin. My husband was born near there and we loved the Trace. For 15 years, I drove our 40' Phaeton towing a car. Absolutely no problems. It is a bit narrow. . . you need to focus, not a lot of room for error, but I loved it. Maximum speed is 50 mph, 45 in the extreme northern part. No commercial traffic or trucks, just cars, pickups, etc. People out for a leisurely drive. There are point of interest along the way and a visitor's center along the route. Very relaxing. Almost always see wildlife. Lots of pull offs, places to stop for lunch. There are some comfort stations. Cell phones won't work well, though. Great drive. Dale

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

I left this morning for the Coach House Rally in Natchez. After driving a hard two days from Virginia to my home in central Florida last week, I decided to stick to my original plan for miles, around 250 for the day. I wanted to get home after Hurricane Idalia prolonged my stay up north. So I am staying at Tally East. Used to stay here years ago, but it looks rather unkempt and run down now. I will work for an overnight, though, Vet called me last night to tell me Brendon's liver enzymes are high (blood work last week). Hmmmm. So we talked about a plan and will get busy on that when we return home. Dale

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

Made it home this afternoon and got everything tucked back under cover just in time for the worst storm of the season to unleash on us. Lots of rain, thunder, lightning, etc. It rattled the windows a few times. Neighbors said it was the worst one all season. Glad to be home. Dale

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

Thanks for the good wishes. I made it just over 400 miles yesterday. Stopped for the night in Walterboro, SC. Today I have 387 miles to go to get home. Should be easy. No problems yesterday. Started out with light rain, not heavy, and occasionally some wind gusts. I could tell there was more wind, but this Coach House is so aerodynamic, it just went past without jostling me around. Once I got on I-95 at Rocky Mount, everything was dry and stayed that way. Happy Holidays to everyone. Stay safe! Dale

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

I'm gonna make a run for it this morning. Leaving earlier than I normally do, but gonna try and make it home in 2 days. Don't wanna sit in this campground any longer, especially with winds coming as I have rotted limbs that have fallen all around me for a couple days. Dale

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

I am sitting in a campground in Chesapeake, VA, having extended my stay twice to avoid having to run into that storm. Scheduled to leave tomorrow morning headed home. Hoping I can skirt it as it heads out to see. My place in Polk City is fine. Dale

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

When my Sheltie had knee surgery and had to stay quiet I put her on a leash in the house. Even just dragging it around with no human attached kept her from running. Dale

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

Best wishes for a great getaway, Dan and Patty. You will be missing Pickles for sure, but she is there is spirit. Burch, how is ZuZu doing? Last we heard you were going to be taking her to the vet. I have started my trek home to Florida from Northern Indiana. Currently I'm in Charlottesville, Virginia, visiting with my daughter and family. It's been a quick summer seems like, but the heat of Florida is still waiting on me. LOL Dale

RE: Factory Tours

There are plenty of decent hotels in the area, just off the toll road exit on Ind 19 and near CR4. I believe most if not all the factories can accommodate you for a tour. Just check ahead of time. Imagine their websites give a number to call. Dale

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

So very sorry, Dan and Patty. She was a sweet dog and a wonderful friend. She is thankful she had such a great home with loving pet parents. Praying for you all. Dale

RE: Selling an RV/payment

There is at least one escrow company that would do it. My son used them with a sticky situation buying a jet ski for $12,000. The sticky part was the son co-owned the jetski with his dad whose name was on the title and there was a lien. The dad was in on the deal, wasn't shady or anything and the dad and son both cooperated. So my son used an on-line escrow service to handle it. No money was delivered until the title was released and transferred cleanly, then the money was paid. When I bought my new moho from a private individual, he suggested I look into it. I did and they would have handled the transaction, which was over $100,000. But in the end, my investment account wired the money to the seller's bank. They owned it free and clear with a good title, so that worked best. Dale

RE: Old Timer RVing

I am now approaching my 80s and the differences in capabilities of people my age is huge. Some people are fit, active and able to do lots of things at my age and even well into their 90s. Others barely make it in independent or assisted living facilities. A great many others are already dead. Genetics and luck are certainly important. Unfortunately most of us have not and do not live a lifestyle that is healthy. I am a reformed smoker, reformed drinker, and after some serious health issues and a couple of stents, I am moving towards being a "health nut". You probably do not want to hear my advice, but here are a few comments anyway. First, the average American is killing themselves with excess calories and poor food choices. Obesity is very common. You cannot expect to live an active life in older age if you spend most of your life time eating poorly and carrying 20, 50 or a 100 pounds or more of fat. You cannot expect to live a long active life if you do not exercise. Health professionals recommend roughly 150 hours/week of exercise. For me that means a heart rate in the range of 101-122 or slightly higher. Less than that falls into the category of activity, not exercise. I spent my Covid years doing very little. I also had some serious health issues including a heart CTO, afib, emphysema, systemic sclerosis, and anemia. I just finished 36 sessions of cardiac rehab and am now going to the gym 3x/week. I surely cannot totally reverse years of overeating and lack of exercise, but I have learned I can make a huge difference in my health and ability to do things. This Sunday I will be taking off for a 4 month trip in my truck camper. Anyway back to the OP. You probably do not want to do any research and learn about the capabilites of the average person in their 80s. I can tell you for sure it will be discouraging. Next, I recommend you totally reconsider your lifestyle. If you have "settled in" to living and "sitting around doing nothing", consider some alternatives. Even RV travel might not do much for you. especially if that means sitting around a campground. Maybe you should consider photography, or bird watching, or rock hounding, any reason to get you out on the trails putting in some miles of hiking and exploring. Please tell me how you can pack in 150 hours/week of exercise. . .????:?

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

Hey, Burch! If I didn't know better I would think I was parked next to you. I'm at Shipshewana, Indiana, in the flea market RV park and I have a Miramar from Florida parked right next to me! LOL Dale PS: So glad ZuZu is back to herself. Tell her not to do that again!

How is ZuZu doing, Burch? Anymore problems? Does she appear past the crises? Dale

RE: Selling an RV/payment

Not only can cashier's check be counterfeited, but you can stop payment on them up to 10 days after it's issued. Not many people know that, but it is true. If I had to do it this way, I would go to the buyer's bank and have the bank draw the cashier's check right then and there and then cash it. But a stop payment could still be issued. Dale
