  1. I bought 3-4 tubes back in the early 80s, back with ordering through a Nashbar catalog. Back then there wasn't that many great bike shops to buy good gear, so I would save up and make large purchases a couple of times a year. I still buy more tubes than I will ever need. I bet I have at least 8 brand new tubes on hand. I end up scrapping some now and then due to age. I keep enough parts on hand to repair any problems on our bikes that would arise. I also went through a time starting in the late 80's with hubs with sealed bearings, so the headset was the only thing that got re-greased. Now
  2. John, Thanks for your input on Grease, I repacked all of our bicycles this winter, and of coarse I used Phil Wood Grease. I love it, using CV2 on most of my grease needs.
  3. I have a refrigerator smoker painted duck colors with a magnetic Duck emblem on the front. I live in beaver territory, and a few of my friends gave me a hard time about it. So, I put a beaver emblem on the back end of the smoker. I told my friends, if the ducks ever lost I would put the beaver emblem on the front. Well, The front now has the beaver emblem on the front until our next matchup. Hope your trip is going well, Bob
  4. congrats, and get back to good old Oregon
  5. I totally agree, I used to be in the information security business with IBM. After 10 years of avoiding Facebook (after IBM), I finally had to join so I could get information being shared for work. I use it for work only, I do not post, and I have a very restrictive account. I don't friend people, infact some of the crap facebook sends me just pisses me off. (Ok off my high Horse). I know that Oliver just like any other business with a web present is not secure. I will be staying here only for my Oliver information. I like this web site. It is friendly, full of knowledge, and supported
  6. Susan, Sorry, I didn't define what I saw. It was the Honda 2200i. After I posted this I then remember all the power that was turned off during the start of the fires. What ever these stores had are probably gone.
  7. I get surprised at what I can't find. We were given eggs also weekly during the first couple of months of Covad. but I couldn't find a roll of toilet paper, and we make it here locally. We were down to the last 1/2 roll of TP, then I was blessed to find a six pack on the shelf. Right now I am thankful that I still have a house, and it is no longer raining ash and burnt pine needles. I am truly thankful for the rain last Friday and I can breath air that is not smoke filled and dangerous. I think it will be awhile that I complain about the continuous rain in Oregon. Now I can go bac
  8. Susan, It was a couple of months ago, but I believe I saw them on the shelf at Coastal in Eugene. Maybe call all of the Coastal in Oregon. Thanks, Bob
  9. I don't own a Ollie yet, but very, very interested. I would love to come see some Ollies and meet some of you great people. Larkspur, CO (Jellystone) is centrally located, with great major highway access. I have been to the renaissance festival there. Fort Stevens is also a beautiful place, with some great history around it.
  10. Thanks everyone that have replied. I have learned a lot already. I live in Oregon, So I am a long way from the factory in TN. I have yet to see a Oliver around Oregon, but I am sure there are some. I am starting to think Oliver may be the way to go for my Wife and me. I am 4 years from retirement. We started with a tent trailer and then graduated to a 1978 GMC 4108 35' Greyhound bus conversion. We loved the traveling and camping, it almost caused a divorce, I spent several years working on it and not paying attention to the family. Both of us are looking forward to getting back
  11. About a year ago we started looking a trailer trailers. It became obvious that the wood framed trailers are pretty much junk. If I buy something I want it to last many years. This is why I started looking at Airstreams. Air streams are not with out their flaws, but they are not junk. I happened across an add for Oliver a month ago, and the thought that it was interesting. I really like the 23-25 twin beed setup of Airstream and I saw Oliver had a similar setup with the 23ft. I have done a few searches, but have had problems gathering the info. I am sure some thread has already cover
