Tied up in Petersburg Virginia

I am very puzzled. Why is Georgia called the peach  state?????? Crossed the whole state on I20 and never saw even 1 peach tree. LOLAnyway I am currently in Petersburg Virginia.  Tomorrow I will be in Alexandria Virginia in the arms of my girlfriend, soon to be fiancee, Faye Susano. Be safe my friends. I've seen way too many wrecks in my travels from Waco to here. At least 2 were fatalities. The only blessing is that none were involving RVs. See More

Annually inspect pigtail

FYI, especially for TT and 5er pullers. Pull your pigtail apart and inspect for corrosion and broken wires. This is what I found when I pulled mine apart today. Green corrosion and broken wires.  See More

Warning about RV Nation. They had the padded vinyl material. Started to order 3 yards of it and when i got into the checkout process, they were going to charge me $201 for shipping on $58 worth of product. Uhmm nope, ain't goona happen.

Found a place called All Vinyl Fabrics. They had a padded marine vinyl. Little more expensive, it cost me $75 but…

One Down, Two To Go.

I finally got a hold of one side tool box and got it installed on my pickup. Had several lined up but by the time I got to them someone else had snatched them up. One of the drawbacks to living in a sparsely populated area, it takes time to drive to where these items are located.

Anyway here are pictures of the first successful install.…

Trip to Arizona

Day 1, Monday 8-22-16:

I was planning on leaving the house at 2PM today, so as per usual we left at 3PM. Which is better than the 4PM it would normally have been. When DW finally realized that US 412 is mostly a 2 lane highway she got noticeably upset. Being the well trained husband that I am I answered "Yup, it sure is." maybe not one of my better responses but it got the point across and dagger stares for the next 50 miles.

For those of you who have not traveled US 412 across…

Montana Bound

well as per usual we got a late start.  DW thinks the day does not begin until 1PM so it was 1:30 when we got on the road.  

Got stuck on the freeway for 3 hours on I55N, no sign of a wreck or construction when the traffic started clearing so don't know what the problem was.

Got to the KOA in Eureka, MO about 10PM.  Some out of the road but could not locate a RV Park on our main route so made this 30 mile detour LOL.

More fun and games to be…

i would take u up on it.. heads and carb are rebuilt. i cannot even turn crank to try and unhook the trans . it ate #4 cylinder and imploded the piston when the old intake gasket dumped all the antifreeze in the cylinder. cranked it over for comp tests and flushed it with kerosene . took 2 weeks to get the pan out (eventually cut it out) and the kerosene i think seised all the bearings. i need to turn crank 1/8 turn to get the rod in #4 out to even look at the cylinder damage. Replaced the balancer bolt with a milodon and a 4 ft breaker on 3/4 drive stock will not turn it. (it did turn it tighter by 2 revolutions but I stopped at that point in tightening it.
