    Guests often confuse the weekly beer pong parties on the 3000 loop with private parties at Clementines. It is easy to mistake this, since the 3000 loop is so,close to the beach.

    Keep calm and have a starlight mint

    Slinky Dog queue isn't wearing well

    Of course anyplace that has lifted will quickly be peeled away in large chunks by the delinquents.

    Bikes

    The two I caught came off the boat and were headed in the direction of the Hoop Dee Doo. When I yelled at them, they took off and got lost in the crowd.
  4. This afternoon it is 90 degrees at the Cadillac Ranch, the boys are out in the back yard, FWG has finished the chores wifey left and she is off at her part time job, so what to do? Why, sit on the back deck and drink a Kungaloosh, of course. So I wondered after my first, what is the proper plural of Kungaloosh? I come to the experts. I am sure someone must know what he plural of Kungaloosh is. Kungaleesh? Kungalosshes? Kungali? I have had three and you have no idea how hard it,is to,write this.

    Bikes

    The Outback has a rear slide, so I cable the bikes under the slide to the rear bumper.

    I have personally sat on the porch at Crocketts and watched as two twenty something's attempted to steal my wife and my bikes that were locked in the bike rack right in front of me.

    Another Change at Trail's End Takeout

    Not only is the mac and cheese good, it is the only Mac and cheese I have had that tastes good the next day warmed up in the microwave.

    You telling me they can make fries out of steak? And I thought the death of the cinnamon bun on Main Street was when the magic died for you.

    I never knew fries were an option. Cowboy beans and Mac and cheese. Why would you want anything else?
  10. This is why as soon as I hit the Fort, the clothes come off.

    Awning Fabric Replacement

    The technic used depends on the awning. In my case, you could lock the right side with a cotter pin or nail, but the left side not only has no hole for the nail, but if you could put one in there is nothing inside for the nail to engage to prevent the spring from unwinding. The ratchet on the right side makes a nail or cotter pin unnecessary.

    Awning Fabric Replacement

    I repaired the old one with gorilla tape but that didn't work.

    Awning Fabric Replacement

    The problem came with the left hand spring. You have to load the spring then put the end plug on the support arm. Not easy with a loaded spring. I ended up putting the cap on the arm and winding the spring by rotating the arm like a propeller. The other side was no problem since it had the ratchet.
  14. Now I am not by any means an expert, but I am a lot smarter now re. replacement of the awning fabric on a Dometic AE awning. The job took about 5 hours total including lunch and pee breaks, and I will admit I have not put away my tools yet. I also have many band aids on my hand and just about got killed by a flying vice grip pliers as a spring released tension and I lost my grip. But if your local RV repair shop is like mine, they would have charged me 600 bucks in labor over and above the 200 bucks for the fabric, my camper would have sat in their lot for a month and the work would have been done by a high school kid at a summer job. So if you need any advice or just some words of encouragement, just write me a post. Now, it's time for an adult beverage. KUNGALOOSH, campers!
