  1. It’s Wednesday, the 12th....As we are in the last stages of packing for Lake Guntersberg, Zef heads out to the bank for travel $$ (gas money?) and spies an Ollie EII on US 90 right in town, but forgot to note the hull number... left a card on the truck window... maybe we’ll see them in Alabama. 🤞🏻🤞🏻 Zef and 00na Heart-a-Lee Ollie EII Monticello Fl
  2. Here is another trick with lid. I marked the place on the lid where the threads engage. Used a sharpie. So I can align the mark with the top screw of the ring and start turning. No more guesswork. Zef LE II #707 Heart-a-Lee
  3. Thanks SO much for this ! I sent it on to our son...thinking about mooch-docking in his driveway this summer.
  4. (¡Overland! Me encanta su uso de la lengua linda... ) We hope there will be some get-togethers to share expertise and stories... We’ve both been vaccinated and still wear masks and are cautious... but SO looking forward to Ollie Interaction.
  5. THANK YOU ALL! We had another practice camping and followed your advice. No more adding gates or extra valves etc...just leaving it hooked together. (sometimes we look at each other do a face palm and say, "Thank goodness for the forum"). We are also pleased to have practiced tank flushing, getting a setting up and taking down routine and mastering the whale tail. So looking forward to May and the NOTT. Zef and 00na
  6. HELLO! Has anyone found a way to put a blade valve between the PVC and the flexible hose in the aft compartment to prevent "dribble" ? We've had a couple of accidents. (wasn't sure if we needed to start a new thread with this question) This thread has been very educational. We are getting better at it -- so far three sessions at the pump-out during three shake down cruises. Practice practice practice. "Big trip" planned mid-May beginning with the NotRally. Zef and 00na
  7. Zefan00n will be at site D-08 with Hull 707 (Heart-a-Lee). Our first stop along the way to visit our son in Denver- the first long distance voyage in our new OE II. Very much looking forward to meeting OOO (other ollie owners)! Arriving on the 13th, leaving on the 17th.
  8. #707 logo Mock-up... what you say when you are about to take a different tack...
  9. Hello All! Thanks for the warm congratulations. We’ve made it through the newbie gauntlet! (High praise for Tucker!) This included the major face-palm moment when we realized that the “tow package” on our new F-150 did NOT include a trailer brake controller. We went down to David Crockett for the night. So peaceful... beautiful sunset through the silhouette of bare trees. Luckily, the guys at Oliver helped us find Darin Runions in Hohenwald who could install a controller on Friday morning. This pic was taken mid-morning Friday since we stopped by to ask a couple more bone-headed questions (What button do we push? What light comes on?). We think we’re going to name her Heart-A-Lee... a nautical nod to our past and the yawl we sailed for many years and the voyages we keep in memory... Ready about...Hard a lee! Thanks especially to George for the photo of the prototype. Chuck Macatee was a large influence in Zef’s openness to new adventures and self-reliance. Z’s amazed you could still fly that lady in 2003! We plan a few shake-down cruises before the hoped-for trip to see our son in Denver...late spring. Looking forward to running across you all some day...we signed up for the NOT A RALLY in May. Zef and 00na # 707 Heart-A-Lee
  10. Waiting till we have better wifi! Staying at David Crockett for the night... some issues involving the trailer braking system, so we’ll get help from Daniel in Hohenwald tomorrow and then off home!
  11. we’re UPSIDE DOWN with happiness!!
  12. We were delighted when we found out our hull number was to be 707. In 1959, Zef’s godfather Capt. C. Macatee flew the first transcontinental US commercial 707 flight LA to NY. Could there be a more perfect coincidence? We’re ready for our flight!
  13. Hello to all, Zef and 00na Fessenden awaiting our 9 AM launch!
  14. We WERE more than grateful! We even called Duke later for more TV advice... now our new F150 is awaiting the partner who is scheduled to come "home" mid-December. Thanks to Chris and Duke who were very helpful and friendly. Today we sold the "SOB" (some other brand) and are planning the tin shed building for the Ollie.
