    Best vehicle to pull 5k light weight camper

    Lots of good suggestions. Paul; look on websites like Carfax and Carstory for used vehicles. You can filter the results to just what you are looking for and it will give you a very good idea of what is out there and what prices are for given years, mileage etc. As said 20K late model with low mileage is going to be hard to find.

    Fuel Rock

    I have a piece of wood about 4 inches by 3 with a notch from a knot that holds the nozzle open just right! Its a hand pump so any overflow is my own doing......

    Those stories are some of my most treasured memories! My Granddad (WW-1), my Dad and 2 uncles and several of their friends all WWII vets got together frequently and recounted they're experiences. Dad at a depot base in England , my Uncles both infantry in Italy and their buddies who included gunners and a co-pilot. One of them was in the Pacific and if memory serves me right ( This is 40 years ago...) went through "Bloody Tarawa ". He was the most reserved about his experience. My Stepdad was on a mine sweeper in the Bering sea where the weather was so bad it was thought that combat would have been an improvement.

    There is one on my 806, never in the same place twice. I thought this thread was a continuation of the "Smell like Dad" topic.......😛

    USS Hornet

    Guadalcanal and the battle at Surigao straight were the only 2 battleship to battleship battles in the pacific theater. At surigao Admiral Jesse Oldendorf became the only commander to "cross the T" with his 7 battleships. The Japanese at that time only had one battleship and a few cruisers I believe so the odds were not in their favor. (As we know!) 6 of the 7 ships were survivors of Peal Harbor. While on the subject of Leyte gulf battles those interested should also look up "Taffy 3" and the battle of Samar and the destroyer escort Samuel Roberts.

    Must be similar to these pictures from when they found the USS Lexington, the painted insignias and Jap kill flags and markings on these Wildcats and TBD's are in great shape.

    Door to door salesmen

    And if they dare come back just lose the boxers, that will keep them away forever........
  11. I always enjoy hearing story's from the greatest generation. They just have wisdom that seems to escape people today.

    ebay jerk gets a lesson

    I've bought a lot of stuff on Ebay; 2 cars, tractor parts and my wife buys I don't know how much but it seems something arrives every other day. Always check the sellers feedback and history before you buy! I bought a Husqvarna 372XP chainsaw a couple years ago, said it came with a 20" bar. Saw arrived, no bar..... Seller said he packed it in the box, box was in bad shape oil soaked and torn on one side so maybe the bar slid out of the box?? Don't know, seller said it was in there. I said I want 75$ off to cover new bar and chain, seller said no. Ebay said yes, product was not received as it was represented and refunded me the 75$ and charged the seller. Never had a problem with Ebay not standing behind a purchase.

    If you have one of these...

    Weird .... you would think it would come on at 120* and stay on until the fire was low enough to drop below 120* not switch off and on 10* apart. ??
