  1. Old tanker , yes very proud of granddaughter she is the gem of my eye . as to Doc , I hope you get clearance soon and when you do push for it . On 12/15-16/21 I really thought I was gone with pneumonia and after my heart , it’s been seven months and I am just know getting stamina back ! That is why we have taught Carol to drive , I get a rest and nap , keeps me going . I never thought in December of 21 we would be doing this again ! I give thanks every nite praying for you clearance soon ! I really just got doc approval in April cus I told them I had a show to put on in Tulare ! Lol tony

  3. 6/16/22 Did not make my beloved ,”Amarillo by morning “ BUT DID BY EVENING !! all went well 6 1/2 hour uneventful drive ! Just like flying we love uneventful flights and drives ! My dear better half drove 21/2 hrs . I love Amarillo and every time we visit here , I tell Carol , Can’t leave here , let’s call moving vans , and few low boys for the girls in shed ! actually most of the panhandle would suit me but I am afraid I am to old to start farming cotton again ! Lol 2 picture leaving Gallup NM and one on arrival at Oasis rv park . tomorrow head to Oklahoma City . btw weather all along so far has been like home 87 to 104 very little humidity light breezes fyi we have traveled 1200 plus miles and it’s 1100 plus to sSpringfield Ohio . tony
  4. 6/13/22 Carol and I left home for our first leg of trip to Ohio . We in Hendersen Nv visiting my daughter . 6/15/22 we are in Gallup NM . an observation of hiway traffic so far , I would guesstimate traffic at about 10% above pandemic days of shut down . trucks are working hard many packs on roads and every fuel stop with parking is loaded with trucks , Also miles of trains loaded with double stacked 40 ft containers ! So industry is moving but cars , pickups , Rv’s really noticeable , we counted five class A’s DP ‘s and about same in fifth wheels From Fresno to Gallup NM . Last year when we went to RPRU in Da Quoin we had to reserve RV parks head of time they were packed so far no problem . Just fyi could all change when we get to Amarillo . few pics of so far .last pic was leaving home , then parked at daughters cul da Sac. My daughter Tammi , Carol , Brooke my Granddaughter ,my three loves of my life ! Brooke is really into volleyball and driving her 300U at cafes parades . tony
  5. Carol and I left Monday spent couple nights with my daughter today we in Gallup Nm I am going to start a thread on this page of trip and pictures of show ! However , I suck at pictures according to my wife so we need to ask for help from Brady Boy and Sledgehammer tony
  6. Great picture of what an animal can mean to us ! Lets keep that one foot a head of the other like you said ! Makes me think of H.D. how he persisted and came to Sedalia RPRU on oxygen defying his Doc's cause he wanted to meet his Red Power friends and took a group picture with us. Lot of great inspiration and tough guys that I want to emulate when I get old ! lol. Thanks Guys , Tony
  7. I hear what your saying loud and clear! Towards the end of my baler project June of 2021 , I could tell something was happening to my stamina, breathing ,patients. I hurried to finish, thinking I was just getting older and after two years of hard work at project I was getting tired. Well, got her done just before leaving for RPRU in Du Quine end of june into July did not feel right feeling horrable but had no reason though all I needed was a vacation , RPRU and trip went well had good time but fought, little stamina and lack of enthusiasm on everything because of being tired all the time. Week after home from RPRU was taken to ER with A Fib which I had never had,that I was aware of , Hospital four days , lot of meds added , thought I was okay but kept getting dizzy and having A fib events. December 14th pass out at home coughing ,back to ER Severe Double Pneumonia ,in covid ward for a week ,even though I tested negative for Covid , for two days in hospital I thought I was gone ! Sent home week later with all oxygen equipment , on oxygen 6 weeks at home , Starting to get moving, Cordiologist says A Fib is bad need Ablation back to heart hospital Feb 28 ,2022. Made it, but my stamina goes from about 9am to 3pm with lot of little rests in-between and then I need a nap or two ,if I am standing on cement i fade fast, but I keep plenty of chairs in Shop ! Here I am 76 and Doc is saying from what I went through It will take at least a year to recoup stamina ! Going to try RPRU again this year going by MH will carry oxygen with us just in case , My wife enjoys driving as I do ,so we will divide the duties . Oldtanker, lets keep pushing because our window of opportunities is gradually closing , Covid shutdown took two years off our retirement activities and now we have to push ,not too hard but like they say in the MH adds ROUGHING IT SMOOTHLY. Best to you ! remember, 67 and 76 is still young , I keep praying for quality till 86 Will see what God thinks .lol Tony
  8. We are planning on all three days. Will be leaving here early next week going to visit family along the way , the plan is there by Wednesday22nd. God willing . After these last few years of Covid and my own health issues, along with my friend's health issues, its time for us to take all the advantage of time the good Lord has aloud ! Love seeing all my IH friends and meeting new ones ! The old Bus is ready ,As long as no def problems or diesel shortage , Or obstacles along the way ! MY Doc says go , my wife says go , my pocket book wont talk to me, its lost a lot of weight! , my mind says yes lets go have fun! , my body says slow down buddy take your time don't get to crazy or I'll show you who's boss ! lol. So, Its Ohio or Bust !, Tony
  9. Eddie is home ! His wife is trying to keep him resting instead of farming !lol. Thank you all for your prayers ! I was a little worried , Shop would never be the same without us taking a break and settling the worlds problems ! Not to mention when I get tired of working on projects ,HE COMES UP WITH MORE IDEAS and gets me riled up. Good friends are not at every corner got to keep this old fart around ! Tony
  10. I wonder ! I can just see that a big quiet smile with a pair of tongs and a bashing hammer next to the forage fire ! Says with a grin “, Darn português ,how am I going to use it now ?” I knew I could never put a square peg in a round hole when you came in the door !” tony
