Social Media

Today we are adding our Face Book Page to the blog.  So any post here will also be shown on our Face Book page.  So the first benefit of this is that any blog is now publicly available.  But more importantly, if you become a Friend on Face Book, you can also post on it!  So now you can alert people to places you’ve been, sights you’ve seen, and in general keep up to date with all members of the TS FB page.

So if you go to the TS Face Boo page ask to be a Friend and you will be connected real time to everyone else who is friends.  You will be able to let everyone know about special places to stay, where  not to go, whatever you think is important.

Think of this as sitting around a virtual fire sharing stories with your TS friends!  Give us a few days to fully implement this new feature, but we thought you may want to know.  You can reach the site at TS Face Book.

Service Feedback

Some time ago, we  received a request from an TS motor home owner (non TS member) about having the X-Bracing done.  We contacted him and gave him some information (I had it done on my TS).  I got this response from him today:

“I just had the X bracing done at Pauls RV in Wakarusa, Ind.  They got me in and worked on it immediately. I ended up staying in my coach while they worked on it. My windshields were so loose at top I could put my hand thru to the inside.

I had x\the X bracing done and windshield hoop, they know exactly what to do. My front cap mounting brackets at the bottom had come loose so they glassed them back in but my cap was still sagging so I suggested a generator hoop.
They raised the front cap and installed rectangular tubing under windshield and welded to the frame. It really made the front end a lot quieter.  So if i can be of any assistance to anyone in the Supremes please give them my number. 

I will be very happy to answer any questions.  Thank you for your earlier reply.

So our Internet presence has helped someone outside the club.  If someone wants to contact him let me know and I will give you his phone number.  I have suggested they join our club.  I thought this may be of interest to other club members because of the new contact for having work done on our Travel Supremes.

If you’re in Montana…..

From John and Romola Laninga

Half way between Yellowstone NP and Glacier NP lies the town of Deer Lodge, pop. 3,100.  We camped there, had some time, and found the Old Montana Prison.  This was the first Montana prison, with a rather notorious history of greed, corruption and prisoner abuse (it was built primarily with convict labor).  It now houses 5 museums, we visited two: the Prison Museum, and the Car Museum.  It was well worth the time.  One of the nicest car collections we’ve seen in a long time, and the Prison tour was chilling.  We recommend a stopover here!  Below are just a few pictures I took:

Like death and taxes, you can count on our annual dues being due again.  In fact, they are due on or before April 1 (no that’s not an April Fool!)  So here is a gentle reminder for you to get your dues (only $20) to Bud (E. K.) Odom, 211 Walnut Street, West Monroe LA 71291 by April 1st. This is the cut-off time for membership dues. Those not paying by that time will not receive a newsletter.  And you wouldn’t want that!

So dig deep and send your $20 to Bud so you will be smiled upon at our next meeting or rally.

We are happy to report that both Jim Hoover and Carol Butaud are home from the hospital and are recuperating slowly but steadily.

It’s almost 80 degrees in Houston today.  What’s all this snow people are complaining about?
