  1. Brad, it’s always great to see you and Jacolyn. Glad you’re coming in early as the “Pre Rally Rally” is always lots of fun. Travel Safe Steve
  2. I understand that life sometimes gets in the way. If you can only make it for a day or so, that’s OK too. We would love to see you.

    Tinker Week?

    Gail and I will be at Little Farm the week following the ECR. It’s always fun “Tinkering at Rick’s”.
  5. I use Progressive in TN. The only change I have had in the last couple of years is that it used to be one policy for the truck/trailer combined, but last year they changed to separate policies for each. I just renewed this month, so I guess they are going to keep me for a while.
  6. The climate in NE Tennessee I feel is a bit better than central or western Tennessee. I’m at 2300 ft which seems to moderate things a little. Take a look at a national weather map showing temperature isotherm lines. There always seems to be a “tongue” of cooler air coming down around the Tennessee- North Carolina line. As to the price of land, I haven’t really followed it. Real estate prices are quite reasonable though. My house for example is 6000sqft (3800 finished living plus 2200 sqft of a large open basement) on 5.5 acres, is on the market for $595,000. Tha same setup in many other parts of the country would be somewhere north a million.
  7. Don’t rule out Tennessee. No income tax. RV friendly. My Volvo registration is $25 a year, and for the trailer, I got a permanent tag for $125. (or you could pay $25 a year). Property taxes are low. My house appraised at $589,000 and the annual tax bill is $3,300. I,m in the Smokies in NE Tennessee. 2300 ft elevation. Here, you get all four seasons. The winters are not too harsh. We get a few snows a year but it doesn’t stay around long. Temperature is in the 40’s and 50’s this week. Summer doesn’t get too hot. Six months a year you are in the spring or fall. Down side is sales tax is 9.5% Hope this helps. Steve

    OT: Computers

    I’ve been using a Macbook Pro for many years and would never go back to a Windows machine again. Most if not all your data (docs, spreadsheets, etc) will transfer, but your programs / apps will not.
  9. Are you selling it? Giving it away? Or just telling of it’s existence? I have some potential uses for it if you are looking to part with it. Steve
  10. If you are looking for a park near San Antonio, Gail and I are at Alsatian RV Resort just a little west of San Antonio. It a very nice park with long paved pull through sites.
  11. Like all the other replies, I have them on all three axles and they work great.
  12. Gail and I may be in Sarasota next summer. Probably May or June. Plans aren’t finalized yet, but we normally stay at Sun-n-Fun off of Fruitville Rd. We too do a bumper pull trailer. Stay in touch if you like and I will let you know the dates when we finalize our plans. Steve
  13. Here is the official 2018 National HDT Rally Group Photo. If you would like a full size version, you can download it HERE Thanks to everyone that came out and joined in. I feel that this years event was a great success. One of the best ever. We got great feedback on the surveys to make next year even better. I will publish next years dates soon.
  14. A wedding band was found at the rally. If you lost one, please contact me so that I can get it back to you.
  15. Thanks for the pix Dave. I’ve been super busy, but I will try to post the “Official Group Photo” today. The National HDT Rally was a great success. Thanks to all that joined us.
