Split from @John E Davies for sale post in classifieds. John so apprectes all your kind words and best wishes, but the comments were possibly making it difficult for ad readers to find info.

This is making me sad. I've followed all your posts, read all of your How To instructions and have been amazed at your mods as well as your sage advice to us newcomers. I'd hoped to meet you someday on the road or at a rally to thank you in person for your contributions. You have had a bigger impact on Oliver owners than you'll ever know. I can only wish you well in whatever comes your way in the future.

Dear @John E Davies John:

This news comes by way of making D's and my heart heavy.  We have learned so much from your posts and PMs and were looking forward to possibly meeting you and Mouse down the road at some point.  We wish you and yours the very best in the pursuit of your dreams and happiness in future endeavors.  Know that our prayers kind thoughts are with you both and hope you can remain engaged with the forums as the true "Oliver Sage" that you have been for many years.  From one aviation professional to another, "Fair winds and following seas!".

Cheers!

John - so sorry circumstances require you to sell your Oliver!  I hope whatever health issues are contributing aren’t serious and improve.  You should have a quick sale!  Take care - Mike

So sorry to hear of your declining health and seeing this need to sell your Oliver. 
It is quite obvious your well loved Oliver has been kept in pristine condition and whoever purchases it will be lucky to benefit from the many great mods you did. 
Wish you all the best and prayers for your health issues.

John,

I echo all of the above comments. I too have contacted you via PM for assistance. I felt I could do that & get a reply that would answer my question. I am deeply sorry that you need to sell your travel trailer. Best wishes. 😢

John,

I also am sad to hear of your declining health and the impending sale of Mouse.  You have alluded to health issues and your expectation they would lead to this point.

I too learned a great deal from your informative posts.  The documentation of your modifications is first rate.  I have always been impressed by the thoughtful designs and the very high caliber skills evident in the fabrication of your modifications to Mouse.  I thank you again for reviewing and commenting on my design for a rear mounted cargo carrier.  Your imprimatur gave me confidence to proceed.

I wish the best for you and your family.  Thank you for your substantial contributions to the Oliver community.

Don

John - My wife and I rarely follow any form of social media, but regularly check in to the Oliver Forum in large measure to see whether you’ve added another post. Your posts on modifications and maintenance are the gold standard, and we thank you for your detailed explanations and thoughtful replies to questions. I echo others in the hope that you remain active on the forum, and that your health improves.

I know your decision must have been tough as it appears you guys really enjoy traveling with your "Mouse".  The new owners will love all that you did with your modifications.  Hope you continue on the forum with sharing all that knowledge  and experience you have.  Your input would be greatly missed.

Take care of yourselves.  That is the most important thing right now.
