Just checking in.
I paid the Photobucket ransom when they dropped it to $100/yr.
I can live with that for how many pics I have hosted on their site.
But as I went to post this, I see that management feels differently..So welcome to the world of disjoint posts
I got lucky and found a window that isn't quite right, but work, its from a newer AS that has dual pane glass. I had to change over the window hardware to the older style, but it seals the cold out. I got it from a forum member named Chris out of Canada.
Late last Fall we did go to General Sibley Park down in Bismark before winter shut us down.
Winter in NoDak took a long time to get over.
Last week we took a trip down to the Minneapolis area and stayed in the Jordan KOA.
No problems hooking up and taking off, there was a small hiccup in the travel plans.
I thought we would try the 2012 Tahoe since it would be a relatively tame/flate/straight drive down the interstate, then 3 days of driving around downtown MPLS..
But that proved to be uncomfortable even for the 20 mile trip into Fargo, so while I heard some complaints from my wife about needing to go back home and swap vehicles, it was for the best.
It rained like crazy while we were down there and that exposed that I need to climb up on the roof soon, and get to work stripping, cleaning, and resealing everything. Most items up there have not been touched since we bought it.
On the way home, all 6 lug nuts on the streetside front tire came loose and it destroyed the studs and rim, that will have to get fixed, new wheel studs and another rim. Added to the list.
Now the repairs and prepping start for our August trip to Colorado.
My wife put in a request for running water and a sink!
Let the gentrification begin!!
Before CO. we will be taking at least one more trip into Minnesota over to Itasca.
I really should have started a mileage log when I started pulling the AS.
So far, that I remember.
Home -- 80 miles one way (2015)
The rest are round trip.
Jamestown -- 260
Oregon -- 4400
Jamestown -- 260
Minneapolis -- 510 (last fall, Renaissance fest 2017)
Bismarck -- 440
Travel 2018 (so far)
Minneapolis -- 510 (Spring)
Looks like I am up to 6,460 miles so far, not bad, time to rotate the tires I think
