Well since the next rally was cancelled, I guess we will stay home and do some maintenance, like change the rear end oil and replace 2 of the universal joints on either side of the retarder to see if we can get that drive vibration to stop. Time to jack the bus up and put it on stands and wood.

Would love to travel to the northern part of the state before it becomes a million degrees but it is still "season" and all the RV parks in FL are full till May!

Yes, I unfortunately have a husband that encourages them to come by so they can "chat". Gonna buy myself the biggest sex toy I can find and answer the door with that in my hand and see if they would like to play a game. I have absolutely no patience for anyone coming to my house uninvited...ie sales or religious nonsense.

Wait, I missed the thread. You have talking about it for as long as I have been on the WOG, probably before. YOU RETIRED??? Congrats! Sleeping in feels good. I'm totally retired since about a year ago now. We got to go camping someplace in the spring.

Be sure to take a pic because I want to see the look on their face when you do that!!!

I have a half mile long driveway and I was out mowing the grass along the sides of the driveway, up close to the house. I see this car coming up the driveway and it was two ladies and two boys, in the car. They ladies were most likely their moms and they were maybe "training" their boys, and they stopped by my tractor. I shut the tractor off and get down and they roll the window down and start their "spiel" and tried to hand me some literature, which I declined. I thanked them and told them I wasn't interested and needed to get back to my work. The driver said, "It's a long way up this drive." I responded with, "There is a reason for that. I don't like company, but apparently it isn't far enough for some people." With that she put it in reverse and backed up for a half mile. I'm guessing she passed the word to her "friends". That was 12 years ago and I haven't seen anyone else come up for a visit, since then.
