  1. I believe he is talking about US95 which is not an Interstate. I believe it is a two lane highway. At least in Arizona it is. GaryD
  2. Back in the fifties us old racers used to rotate the gauges so that at normal operation the needles were pointing up. Made it easy with analog gauges to tell at a glance if everything was okay. GaryD
  3. Hi Dave, Yes, we have camped many years in the LTVA area where you are and at the BLM area north of Quartzsite. Met many long time friends and bluegrass pickers there. Many a nights around campfires there and at bluegrass festivals singing and picking! Enjoy your retirement. Gary D
  4. Hey, Dave did you make it down to Senator Wash? What did you think of the area? Gary D
  5. Dave, we camped at Senators Wash (Imperial Dam) from 1995 to 2012 and really loved the area. Lots of room to camp and spread out. We did a lot of hiking, but not SxS riding. It is a vast area and I'm sure there are lots of riders there. Close enough to Yuma for supplies, and dates and date shakes at Bard. The Army Proving Grounds are adjacent to Senators Wash and is open to the public and if you are a vet there is a small PX. Also, a Chapel where we worked with the Chaplain with our music ministry. A great area, I highly recommend it. Just go south on 95 from where you are and turn west at the "big guns". Stop and take a look at the equipment there.
  6. 2001 Freightliner FL70 Super C Truck Conversion with 300hp Cat 3126b engine and 6 speed all-syncromesh manual transmission. SOLD We are aging and no longer travel with our music ministry. We used her in our music ministry for 16 years and traveled throughout the USA and Canada. Approximately 135,000 miles. The rig is set-up for two people, with the queen bed up front and the living area in the rear. She is a "drivers" vehicle, and has a fully synchromesh manual transmission, allowing you to pick the proper gear. We designed the rig with simplicity and reliability uppermost in mind using quality components. There are no slide-outs but the rig is 102" wide providing plenty of living space for two people. Our truck conversion is located in San Luis Obispo county, California and registered as a "motorhome". Asking price $45,000.00 Specifications here: http://ustruckin.blogspot.com/ Pictures here: http://ustruckinpictures.blogspot.com/2016/05/blog-post_2.html Email Gary Deeds at: garydeeds@gmail.com
  7. https://www.smart-trucking.com/truck-shows/ Not much on the Left Coast.
  8. Here is an interesting article I ran across about the development of "downspeeding" in the post 2010 engines. Interesting read. https://www.truckinginfo.com/155916/powertrain-specs-more-science-than-art
  9. On my baby Cat 3126b I have the weedburner exhaust as shown. Never been a problem. I would not recommend pointing it down; too much dust.
  10. I thought you could not register an HDT with a 5th wheel in Florida. Only bumper pull?

    Hang in there B5er, April 26 is right around the corner. For me it is six Saturdays and Sunday. When you retire you will be so busy you'll wonder how you had time to work.
