Quartzsite PIcs

Thanks to Michael & Tracy, Jim & Mini, Bob & Lou and Julianne for making sure the Quartzsite TG rally happened smoothly...and getting us all to the right place and avoiding the gully washes!

We had a great time with our old 4CU friends...and the new folks we met, too...a good time was had by all. What a great bunch of Aristreamers!

Here are a few more pics to share...

Pic #1: Flags flying proudly on Richard & Jan G's rig...
Pic #2: Chef Michael D and his luscious grilled brussel sprouts...they were WONDERFUL!
Pic #3: Greg S with Michele C & Carol P...our newest 4CU members...
Pic #4: Richard G and Paul M watching the turkey frier pot with Michael D's grilled portabella mushrooms in the foreground...
Pic #5: TB with the sage dressing coming out of the oven...
Pic #6: Mike B, reigning TTQ, holding court around the camp fire...
Pic #7: Pic of part of Anita's bottle garden in Quartzsite...quite the sight...

Glenn ~ I did first post Q workout yesterday, let's just say there are many more in my future! When I stop sweating bloody mary's I know I am back on track....

Re-mounted Carrier AC Unit...

Roger, Richard:

Thanks to your suggestions, I've got the AC unit re-mounted correctly using African Mohogany supports placed fore/aft and longitudinally left/right. See photos. And you guys are right - I can do a pull-up in the hole supported by the new mount!

Summary of shots:
1. Using the bandsaw to cut the "arc" pieces - once the cardboard template was cut to match the correct overhead arc, I just measured and marked the thickness of the strut ribs (1.75" on my rig)... the mohogany stock is 1.5" thick.
2. AC roof penetration showing aft wooden rib - cutouts for wiring were made on the lower/end portions of the wood ribs.
3. Angled 1/2" hole cut for drain tube on forward wooden rib.
4. Notch for wire bundle and hole for drain tube...
5. Notch for wire bundle on aft rib...
6. View from top looking down into roof penetration...

The side struts were pre-drilled diagonally for 3" wood screws into the fore/aft arced struts for additional rigidity. I used #10 x 1" sheet metal screws at 3" intervals both thru outer and inner skin into the wooden support structure. Solid as heck!

Thanks!

Good, Bad, and Better...

A few last notes...
First...outstanding attendance and friendship!!!...the spirit of involvement is truly an inspiration...LORDY!!!, how I love this unit...
For those of you with free range pets...a little more attention to deposits should be made...some folks don't have pets, but are presented with 'contributions' that are offensive to them...loose is fine, failure to take responsibility is on the line...loose dog? see a pile? pick it up...seems fair, to me...The peeing contests on other peoples' property is amusing to us pet owners, but not those without pets(and some WITH pets...(???), but that is a valid point. I don't know how many deposits in the 'landing zone Jim raked up, but it was substantial...I know I went over there with a couple of wally bags, several latex gloves, and dread in my heart, only to find that he had already taken care of it...THANK YOU, JIM!!!
Q4T3 will, if we are able, occur at the appropriate time...don't have the new calendar, yet, but THANKSGIVING seems about right...my most heartfelt thanks to all attendees for doing what they did, EXACTLY how they did it, and in the manner of a typical 4CU rally...we're really lucky, y'know...? m

Michael & Jim...thanks for scooping up errant droppings left behind...and thanks for the reminder to be more mindful.

We keep a plastic bag in our back pockets for such "discoveries" when we camp (even in the "wild") because we don't want dog owners getting a bad rep ... Somehow we always manage to pick up more "presents" than our two Girls deposit.

Nobody—even dog owners—likes stepping in a surprise. It's the fastest way on earth to make pets unwelcome in a park.

it is the old camping adage related to the poop issue-leave no trace. i will submit my resume to run the poop patrol every time wwe attend a rally. sometimes the little darlings do do their doodoo out of eyesight or we are inattentive. poo patrol is a good job. improves the camping environment for all and nobody dog owner or pup gets a bad rap. now the peeing thing is out of my scope. camp on

Cool POOP Patrol...

Concur with Mike and DSRTGRLS... Suggest those with pooches add "POOP Patrol" duties as part of their individual "Packing-Up Checklist"...

I've got it added on my checklist. Like Terry said earlier, its always better to pick up a little extra!

OBTW: Velcro agrees -- WOOF!
