Cats,
Instead of selling it why don't you visit your local auto parts store, get two muffler clamps, and bring them and the flag pole holder to The Bash. I am sure with a little help from some trailerites we can get your holder mounted in a jiffy. Then you can fly your flags.

Makes sense, there are a variety of post sizes out there, you don't want holes all over it. We never even attempted to install, so it is in new condition. Unbuffed (not shiny), at my request, but can be shined up with the correct tool.

I'll bring it with me, very heavy (well made!) and expensive to ship.

Let me know if you might want to buy it - OR maybe install it for me!

Hi Roamin---I will do either.....help you install, or buy it if you decide not to. I keep switching mine back and forth between trailers. PM me a picture of it, and your hitch post. I didn't have to drill mine at all, just had to buy the right hardware to attach!!

I had been working on a Caravan to The Bash and to those that pm'd or emailed me, I apologize for not getting back to you. Rob gave me the name of a good diner to stop at on Route 23 just past Catskill, which I cannot find now. I was going to drive up there to investigate the parking, but never got the chance. I'm afraid I bit off more than I could chew when I offered to host a caravan, and I apologize for letting you down.

I look forward to attending The Bash II next year.
Skip--I was so looking forward to seeing you all. You will be missed.......Please give my best to Allie....

I looking forward to seeing your old station wagon again. What a great tow vehicle! Take care, Gail

I'd be happy to help you out with getting the holder mounted if you want. I'll be busy with hosting duties, but I'm sure I can find time to help you out.

I think all those interested in installing flag pole holders will need to line up and we can rock- paper- scissors for who gets to do the work. Someone should call Lowes in Norwich (10 minutes drive) and warn them they might have a run on "u" bolts and 12 foot painters poles.

Looking around in my cellar, I found

2 Bunk Brackets and 1 celling support.

Humphrey Gas light base and pyrex shroud. The gas light is missing the burner.

Gray tank hose converter. Aluminum adapter which allows you to adapt a garden house to your 3 inch dump.

Let me know if you're interested.

Phone coverage at Bakers Acres

Anyone know if there is a good cell signal at Bakers Acres? 3G?
