Volunteering and Researching

What a great ministry, the Hope Center provides medical care for uninsured and low income people.  There are certainly a lot of people that need a hand up, especially in this current economy.  Most of the patients that came in yesterday had been to the clinic before, however, the Evangelism Team volunteers still take time to visit with them, prior to the doctor, and pray with them.  There were a few that it was their first time to the clinic and two of them accepted the Lord as their savior.  The Hope Center has a chaplain who follows up on patient visits and works toward getting new converts plugged into a church.  Judy and I are going to enjoy volunteering at the Hope Center.

I called Atwood yesterday to get information on the dimensions of their direct drive landing gear legs.  The good news is that there is an “industry stand” for mounting landing gear legs on fifthwheels which means that their legs should fit into our stop block brackets.  The bad news is that Atwood is very, very proud of their legs – they charge almost $1,600 for the set.  That’s the same price as HWH’s hydraulic system with four levelers.  Further research has turned up an Ultra-Fab system for $400 to $450, so I have an email inquiry into them to verify the dimensions.  In the meantime I will continue to research the issue to see what other solutions may be hiding out there.

The old temps dropped down to 30* this morning, but that was the end of the artic express.  Today it will get up into the 60’s and only drop down into the 40’s overnight.  By Saturday we’ll see temps back in the 70’s so, hooray for our team; we’re looking forward to that.  I’m waiting for warmer weather before I lay on my back under the rig pulling its leg Smile.

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - -
