Vinny is full of gas. Boomer and Vinny are loaded and secured. All systems checked and A-OK. Windshield clean. Food loaded. Plenty of water and stuff like that. Little friends cleaned and loaded. GPS on. My AS friends, I am headed west. Don’t know when or where I will stop as yet. Don’t know where for sure is my major destination. One day at a time. This is going to be big. As Pink would say “I’m coming up so you better get this party started”.. Don’t know when I will “post” again but you will know when I am back when I walk through the door. All of you have safe travels, fun times and remember not to take things too seriously.

Thanks for the heads up on these CGs and on Tolland Forest in Otis. We are starting to make plans for the summer, and I am wondering if you know whether the DAR State Park in Goshen is going to open this year, as their site refers to a dam reconstruction which started last fall. I just wrote and asked them too.

I have also written to White Birch in Whately for more info.. Last year they opened on May 1st.

We are thinking of taking a shake-down cruise sometime in the next couple of months to visit relatives up your way. [with a short driveway! ]

Thanks,

Peter

Curious about this also. Bob, what about child drawer safety catches for that pesky bottom drawer under the stove?

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f240...ns-148215.html

We got about 4" of snow here last night but it is melting quickly today. After another cold night tonight, it could be time to summerize. Yes!

Thanks,

Peter

[QUOTE=OTRA15;1765455]Curious about this also. ] Looking at my WH manual this an to se if listed the NPT size for the plug, I notices that the drawing in the cut sheet indicated a smaller vent in the upper LH corner, tho, my cover is almost edge to edge. Maybe this is a form of winterization or maybe a Bug/Crtter guard.

[Bob, what about child drawer safety catches for that pesky bottom drawer under the stove?

...as on old neighbor in CA used to say..."there's a better way" and this is surely it.

I noticed the Lowes/HD are distributors so I'm going to swing by.

Noticed in mazoolah's post of his new TV....some nice clear blue sky in the background. I hope it's heading your way.

Rain here...still...including Autzen...regardless of what they say.

Spring is just around the corner.

Here is the basic lock referenced in that article:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00097FKO0/...I2V4GPRGAPHFAO

Set of 5 locks and 2 magnetic "keys" for $37.

There is another model ("RL" in the stock number) which lets you defeat the locking mechanism to use without the magnetic "key" -- for instance during a camping weekend. It would be a drag to HAVE to use the magnetic key every time you want to open the drawer IMO. This unit has a different geometry which may or may not work on that lower drawer and cabinet face frame. TBD.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KYBAJ1K/...I3KF81PIE23XQN

These locks are intended mostly (IMO) for lower kitchen/bath cabinets which young children can access from the floor, and it is imperative (if a bit convenient) that you HAVE to use the magnetic key to open them. [ PS edit -- just realized that using this system is a two-handed operation: one to hold the magnetic key real close to the latch, and two, to grab the OEM drawer pull to open the drawer -- a very cumbersome operation right in the middle of cooking a meal IMO -- every time you want to open the drawer! ]

I am still liking the keyed cabinet lock in the cabinet's face frame. perhaps to the right of the drawer?

Like this for instance:

http://www.amazon.com/FJM-Security-M...net+lock+keyed

Or the simpler traditional child-proofing door latch which you operate by opening the door a little, and reaching in to bend/flip the catch?

All TBD here on the East Coast.

Peter

This is a very informative tour of the 2015 (apparently the same in 2016) Flying Cloud 20C Bambi.
