The INTERNATIONAL CHAPTER PUB thread - all welcome
I can't see calling it a frivolous thread - pubs and cantina's are special places we stop in along the road, and often carry fond memories over time.
CHEERS! How was your day?
Mine was a bit of a mess, I tore up my whole front yard getting my truck out of what was once the lawn until it was rain saturated for three days and then we got snow on top of that...
Had to jack it up twice and set planks under it, and finally a friend with an F-150 pulled it to the driveway which is gravel. All the soil around here is mississippi river silt laid down as the river wandered over the centuries.
And why is it never an old pair of pants that get plastered with muck?
PS: I really had visualised this with a wood grained interior, but I'll settle for high traffic vinyl and plush carpetting

I'm worn out from clearing out my storage unit. A cost cutting effort. Not making much money these days so any thing I can save is as good as earning. Some stuff went to my shop and some came home. Some (and there will be more,) is going to charity and to the dump.
Took the camper off my F150 and picked up two mpg, so that was productive too.
Cheers to ya!

It's tough in the cold days. I hate gloves - I cant feel what I do with them. And if they are cloth they freeze and are useless. What's funny is I had some rawhide ones a year ago and the dye in them turned my hands yellow
I'll not quit!
I'm lining up a chapter seven and hope I headed off most of the liens on my house. I'll dump the place in five years if I have to.
In a few days I'll toast a fosters at you - I shop on base at the commissary.
Heaven only knows, but devil take the hindmost....
Listening to Natalie Merchant right now, and having a few
Vegetable juice and beer with jalapeno pepper sauce is fine
One must live somehow. Fortunately I have many good books. It's all I can afford
If it comes the chance - I'll snap a picture of the torn up yard
I think I'll just sit here and get potted for a while.
After all - there is a lot of room in here, eh?
All of the diagrams I posted as attachments are gone. All that tech info stuff on trailers and RV's, how to build your own headlight driver relay systems so that you could have the brightest lights imaginable, and fuzed in the right places so that no damage could take all the lights out....
A whole lot of it was conveniently referenced (we thought) in the towing trailer and 5th wheel forum. HORSEPULLER kept a sticky index of all the best topics and articles updated at the top of the thread - and it had got accolades from all levels of the RV and trailer community.
It only just dawned on me the other night that all the drawings in it were likely missing.
A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation. There, he meets an Aussie farmer and gets talking. The Aussie shows off his big wheat field and the Texan says, "Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large. Then they walk around the station a little, and the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle. The Texan immediately says, "We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows". The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when the Texan sees a herd of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asks, "And what are those?" The Aussie replies with an incredulous look, "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas?
I'm curious about a minor thing - I thought Falcon UTE's were the size of Ranger trucks (1/4 ton).
It begins to look like they are more like Ranchero size trucks.... (Full size)
Am I off or something? Is that more the size of them?
I was thinking along the lines of a Ranger II (newer ranger, not classic) size truck with a streamlined front end.
If what I think is true - an idea I have had long burning on the back burner is overdue.
Falcons only come with a short bed only and a "regular cab" (although they do have a bit of room behind the seats for some tools)
They are a bit bigger than a Ranger (think F150 size), but they have a much higher hauling capacity (fitted with the right suspension they are rated to haul over 2800lbs).
They can only tow a bit over 5000lbs though.
